Dear brothers and sisters,
Greetings to all of you in the name of Jesus!
I love being a Christian. The faith makes sense. Christians do not have to face their challenges by themselves. They have God with them and they have the support of fellow believers. And, in true Christianity, the pigmentation of the skin does not matter. We are all brothers and sisters worshiping Our Lord God and Father and our Savior Jesus.
Our most recent team to visit us was from the Cincinnati area. We praise the Lord for what they have been able to do. We mentioned some of their accomplishments in our most recent e-mail. One of the things that we were able to do together was worship. Brother Ken preached an excellent message and had Luke as a translator who has done a commendable job. Together they presented a Spirit-filled message. The biggest people-investment of this Summer is the Summer camp. What a program! What a blessing it is for kids and parents! What an opportunity to influence the young people’s eternity in a most positive way. They play sports, do crafts, learn to cook (girls in particular), learn calligraphy, the Word of God, table manners, etc. One of the things they enjoy every day is a nice hot meal. For most parents it is a God-sent program. Finding wholesome activities for their kids is not easy. Finding a meal for their kids is a challenge. The camp does all of that. If you were to listen to them you would hear both parents and children say “Thank you LORD!!!”. I join them in saying “Thank you Lord” and thanks to First Christian Church of Mountain Grove. May the Lord bless you for that. Many people in our upper staff are saying “Thank you LORD” for sending us Sam. He is well liked. He is a disciplined young man, very committed and professional in his doing. For some he will reduce their load. For others he will give clear guidance and hopefully he will bring his youthful blood to energize the team. I am proud of him as a son and I personally say “Thank you LORD” for making him what he is today. We also say “Thank you LORD” for all the progress on the transitional church building, on the Preschool and Kindergarten building and for the step of faith we have taken to sow seeds in spite of the fact it has not rained. We just wish we could have 10% of the good rain that has been poured over the Mid-west of the United States. I am pretty sure my friends there would not mind that at all. As for me, really I say “Thank you LORD” for you as a supporter, a prayer partner, a promoter, or a fan of Living Water. May the Lord bless you and may He lead you into thinking about the things (both tangible and intangible) He has done for you and for which you need to say “Thank you LORD.” It is not something we have to wait for the third Thursday of November to do. Let’s do it each day.
