Dear Loved Ones,
Patience, Grasshopper! (Kung-fu reference). We have actually made a lot of progress this week as our church and school prepare to vacate our building, allowing our contractor to get in and get to work. We had a GREAT work day Saturday, April 24 and on Saturday, May 1. Thanks to all of the volunteers who have been working so hard to get this done!
One of our lessons this week is about Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch (Acts 8: 26-40), in which an angel said to Philip, “Get up and go.” And do you know what Philip did? He got up and went! He didn’t really know where he was going. He didn’t know what he was supposed to do when he got there. He just knew he’d been called to go, and so he went! What amazing faith! What amazing obedience!
This is the kind of journey we have been on together for the past 15 months or so. As circumstances or opportunities have arisen, we have asked for, received and been obedient to God’s direction for our lives and for our church. This latest chapter, restoring our building after the devastating freeze/flood, has been and continues to be a real challenge, but through it all, God is showing us the way! I am SO excited about how God is moving in this process, and how, at the same time, God is blessing us with new opportunities to shine the light of Christ as we serve our community. We’re fixin’ to get up and go, knowing God is with us and will provide all that we need, every step of the way.
Thank you, Lord God, for your Love and your Providence as we respond obediently to your call.
Alleluiah! Christ is Risen!
Christ is Risen Indeed! Alleluiah!
