Dear brothers and sisters,
Greetings to all of you in the name of Jesus!
Here I am at Mount Vernon Christian Church office, visiting with my friend and schoolmate Mark Engler. It was a non-scheduled visit. I spent last night with Paul and Olabelle Parrish, two very good friends the Lord has given us. Before that I spent a week with friends in Oklahoma.
I was blessed by the Kiamichi Men’s clinic. I had the honor of speaking there Thursday afternoon.
I thank all my friends who have put up with me the whole week. Thanks to my friend Cody and Melissa McDaniels, Curtis and Debbie McDaniels, Arthur Carnes III and IV, Ashley Butler, Dr. Tom Sharp, Clifford and Debbie Fairless and family, Rick and Carolyn Gibson and all the hoard of people who have blessed me beyond words this week.
I thank God for the Lighthouse Church in Avery Texas and the Nashoba Church of Christ (OK), two small churches who are doing a great job for the Lord. They blessed me. Oh, sister Diane from Nashoba was very encouraging to me. May God bless you all for the sake of HIS kingdom.You all know that Satan is not planning on stopping his attacks against us soon, unless the Lord returns. So we need to continue to rely on the Lord. In those times we can either flee or fight. My advise to you is to fight. If you flee you will have no chance of winning.
At Living Water we decided to fight against the enemy forces. In the process we engaged ourselves in the training of the young ones for HIM. Training the little ones for Christ is probably the best part of our ministry. We thank God for brother Jackson, Jean Gilles, Jude, and all the rest of the team for their quality work with those boys and girls.We thank God for the spiritual maturity of a number of our members. Some came wanting to surrender to Christ, yet still held some part of the voodoo culture. Thank God that many of them are completely breaking free from it this year and we rejoiced at seeing that.
We thank God for the progress of the transitional church building. I cannot wait to move so we can look again to further physical growth of the Church. God’s timing is the best. It does us a lot of good to go by it. May the Lord pour out HIS blessings on all our American brothers and sisters as well as Haitians who gave their time, their treasure and their talent to facilitate the progress of this building. We hope to move sometime soon, before the end of the year. We count on your prayers so that it can happen.As I am closing this message, I am in Warrensburg (MO), yes not Mount Vernon, I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow. Dr. Stuart is going to check me out. Hopefully all will be well. If he finds something wrong pray that treatment and healing can be possible. God is able. I thank God for my doctor-friends here: Dr. Hobbs, Dr. Curtis, and Dr. Smith. They have blessed us in many, many ways. May the Lord pay them for us.
Please pray for all the other supporters of Living Water. Pray specially for Paul Green, Gardner Sorrell, Gary Hinkle, and the Meyers. Our God heals and provides for our needs. We just need to ask Him in prayer.
As I continue with my trip in the USA I look forward to seeing some of you face to face.
Salonique Adolphe and team
