Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me will live, even though they die; and those who live and believe in me will never die. Do you believe this?" - John 11:25, 26
We are in the season of Lent which encourages us to prepare for the Easter celebration. It is a time for reflection and self-examination. Because the Easter message is all about hope for the world, our challenge to everyone is not so much “what are you giving up for Lent?” Rather it is “To whom can I bring hope?” Every Sunday morning our service will have the theme “Hope Changes Everything – In Christ there is always hope!”
Readings for this week’s meditation: John 11; Psalm 23; Hebrews 4:14-16; Hope when you are sad.
When you pray for our church family, why not contact them – either phone call, sms, email etc – and let them know that they have been in your thoughts and prayers. This will be a great encouragement to all.

Please pray earnestly for the release of Pierre Korkie, who was abducted by terrorists in Yemen more than a year ago. His wife, Yolande, was released two months ago with the mandate to raise R32 million for his release. Both are believers and connected to our Bloemfontein Baptiste Kerk.
