Pastor Letter for October 2016
Dear Members and Friends
Praise God forever and ever, I don’t know where all of you live look like now but here in Sydney everywhere is colorful and beautiful with verities of flowers and plants which reflects the glory and wonders of our creator and savior of all. September was the month full of all kinds’ of thanksgiving and healings but all in all God’s grace sustain us, love us and refresh us with His new strength.
This month October we will focus on church annual family camp in Yarraba Christian Conference Center, Morriset near lake Macquarie. As you all know our church theme for this year is “serve your neighbor” we will focus on the life of Noah from the book of Genesis chapter 5-9, Noah means rest and peace, Noah and his family were the only believers on earth, yet they serve the Lord and one another to witness for God and against the evil of their days. They were faithful to God when everything seemed to be against them. God prove His plans of salvation by Noah’s family who fear the Lord, who have faith in the Lord who served the Lord and who faithfully follow God’s instruction with obedience and truth without a doubt. Our church family camp will be full of excitement in the word of God and sharing living testimonies of what the Lord is doing today. Jesus quoted in Matthew 24:37-39 (ERV) 37 “When the Son of Man comes, it will be the same as what happened during Noah’s time. 38 In those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving their children to be married right up to the day Noah entered the boat. 39 They knew nothing about what was happening until the flood came and destroyed them all. In today’s society many are living in immorality, neglecting God and following materialism however we have many choices to make to fear the Lord and have faith in God like Noah’s family Hebrews 11:7 Noah was warned by God about things that he could not yet see. But he had faith and respect for God, so he built a large boat to save his family. With his faith, Noah showed that the world was wrong. And he became one of those who are made right with God through faith. You and your family may be challenged in so many ways however have faith in God 100% and move forward to serve, to love and to know Him more. God bless you all.
