Sunday Sharing 16 Nov 2014
Dear Friends and Loved Ones,
I pray this sharing finds you well and your families, after 3 weeks there’s so much to share specially on unparalleled rewards.
“BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HAVE LEARNED TO ACCLAIM YOU, WHO WALK IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR PRESENCE, O LORD” Psalm 89:15
The last 3 weeks had been most challenging and a test of faith…together with several volunteers, our team overcame obstacles after another as Container for Jesus CFJ16 was finally filled and shipped out ready to bless a multitude of needy people. Moreover, it will bless more than 1500 street children & orphans with Shoeboxes for Jesus gifts this Christmas, to ensure these kids can attend school next term. In Singapore, close to 500 shoeboxes were filled and donated to bless Haiyan kids. These sacrifices with much love, time, money and donations will soon reach them & reap unparalleled rewards!
“I HAVE SAID THIS TO YOU, THAT IN ME YOU MAY HAVE PEACE. IN THIS WORLD YOU WILL HAVE TRIBULATION; BUT BE OF GOOD CHEER, I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD.” John16:33
We praise God for His supernatural interventions and He showed us that we need to approach problems (troubles) with a light touch with Him as the problem solver and not us. Please scroll below for our newsletter update on the ministries The Lord recruited us to do. We are to bring a problem to God when it starts to overshadow our thoughts and take the matter to Jesus, talk it over with Him, invite God to be involved and take over…allowing Him to let us see the picture in His perspective and not ours. We were totally was surprised at the outcome, even laughed at ourselves…only then we can see the unparalleled rewards of faith!
“FEAR NOT, AND BE NOT BE DISMAYED AT THIS GREAT MULTITUDE; FOR THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS BUT GOD’S.”2 Chronicles 20:15
“Let go and let God” as the saying goes…but this is not easy to do. As we prepare to travel for BFJ’s next mission in 10 days, we expect to meet strong opposition as usual but we seek your prayers and support while we serve the least of our brothers in the slums, the homeless affected areas one year after Haiyan and the regular ministries we support such as prisoners, street kids, homes for aged and orphans…an experience we pray you will have one day…so worth the time and return home for you withunparalleled rewards money cannot buy!
