I want everyone everywhere to lift innocent hands toward heaven and pray, without being angry or arguing with each other. - 1Timothy 2:8
The 23rd of July 2014 marks the 7th anniversary of our entry into India. We arrived in this vast subcontinent with two suitcases each and with a sense of excitement and expectation. We had a vague idea of what was in store. We also had our own expectations and a preconceived mindset. Looking back over this 7 year period – we thank God for the way He has led us and continues to do so to this day. He closed some doors and He opened many more. He surprised us so often as He made the impossible possible and placed people and provided opportunities along our pathway. Our monthly updates have surely given you a clear picture of all that He has done to this day.
The rest of the letter is on the notice board.
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 begin praying for the Back to Church Sunday on 7 September. The churches of Claremont are inviting Claremont residents to come to church on that day – particularly those who never attend or who used to and no longer do. Lets join all the congregations of Claremont to pray for many to come and hear the word of God and accept Christ as Lord and Saviour. Also pray for the advertising and all the organizing.
Sunday 27 July
