I took the team to the first family, where we were greeted by the boy pictured above, and we were able to pray for them and bless them. It was good to be in this place of ministry once again, but I was sad that we did not get to do more personal ministry. Even as we finished up giving away the last bags, the rain began to come. From that point for the rest of the day it has rained with more or less intensity.
Nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face.
I would like to apologize for taking so long to post, but it has been a crazy fast move of God since the last posting in September. God led us suddenly to Living Water Church. Within the last 5 months, God has honored us by placing us in a position as Assistant Pastors. In November, we began overseeing the youth, and the pastor here had to have a surgery that kept him out for a month and a half. God very quickly showed His favor in our lives, and we were given a huge responsibility of making sure things were running at the church until the Pastor returned. We have an amazing group of leaders surrounding us and helping us in our new role, and are thankful to them for being a blessing to us.
Along with that, we have had a growing Man of God to look after. He is ever a joy and brings life to us in all things, even when he is getting into mischief. We are training him up with a love for the nations, and he often asks to see the world. We take that time to pray for revival and an increase of Holy Spirit and Fire to overwhelm the nations.
Now that the Pastor is back to full strength, things have settled down a bit, and I hope to be posting more often to keep you updated. God recently opened the door for me to teach on Simple Discipleship.
He gave me a discipleship plan not too long after returning from our around the world trip. Finally, after a year and a half of waiting, I have been given the opportunity to teach this at the church. I would encourage you to study through this with us. I will be posting the weekly topic and verses to allow you to study them, and then about a week later, I will post the recording from my teaching at Living Water Church. If you are hungry and wish to grow, use this as a study to be discipled and than to disciple others to do the same.
My intention in this study is to study the major topics of important by studying the scriptures directly. I have tried to find between 3-5 short scripture references for us to learn together directly from the Word. I want to teach in such a simple way over each area so that you are able to not only learn it, but you have the ability to teach it the very next day. I have also tried to take scriptures out of the Old and New Testament to bring a totality of teaching on each subject. Again, I encourage you to be a part of us growing together through what God is speaking.
The First Week’s topic is Being a Leader/Disciple. The scriptures we will be focusing on are: John 13:1-17, John 14:12-14, Mark 8:34-38, Daniel 11:32-33, Matthew 28:18-20, Luke 14:25-35, Mark 10:28-31.
May the Lord bless you in all that you do and may much fruit abound in and around you, no matter where you may be in the world, because of your love and faithfulness to Him!!!
