Greetings Alpha and Omega Family from a tropical Florida,
We are at the halfway mark of our ministry here in the U.S. and what a blessed time it has been! The words of Isaiah 43:19 perfectly illustrate the first leg of our time here:
Isaiah 43:19 (VOICE)
“Watch closely: I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; Waters will flow where there had been none.”
Truly the Lord is preparing a way, making paths in the wilderness and bringing life through His living water to dry land. We are attentive as the Lord is beginning a new thing in our time here in the US. New relationships have been established, new doors have been opened and faithful friendships revitalised!
Dad and I were truly blessed to visit Andrew and Angela Columbia and minister at their new spiritual home, MCB Church in Carmel New York (MCBChurch.org). It was a great time of fellowship with our longtime brother and sister in the faith, witnessing the new work the Lord is doing in and through them at Mt Carmel!
Dad spent the weekend ministering at MCB and we got to meet the wonderful people that form the heart of the fellowship. The church roots run all the way back to 1768, celebrating their 200th anniversary this year. It was a great honour and privilege to worship in such a sanctuary, all glory to God!
From there, our next ministry trip was to pastures anew once again. Through the connection with Andrew Columbia, we were invited to minister at Freedom Christian Center (houseoffreedom.org) on the east coast of Florida. Meeting and getting to know Pastors Tim and Kelly Franklin, the father and mother of this wonderful fellowship, was truly a special time, a divine appointment!
Dad and I were overwhelmed with the love emanating from Tim and Kelly as they welcomed us into their home with open hearts.
Their hearts beat with the Father’s love and are such awesome examples for any believer, young or old in the faith.
As Dad ministered at Freedom Christian Center, through the course of that weekend, it was clear that this spiritual home carries the same heart of love as their spiritual father and mother, Pastors Tim and Kelly. We left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated through this ministry of love and we look forward to continuing this love-walk with our new friends in the faith.
We give God all the glory for this Spring season and look forward to all he has in store, using divine connections to breath new life not only to the Church as a whole but the choking world we inhabit.
