We enjoyed getting back to knocking on doors yesterday. We had some good conversations as we continue to meet some people in the neighbourhood of our church property.
This morning was well attended. It was good to have a visiting family from Canada with us. Our theme for the year is, "Thou art worthy, O Lord." I'm preaching a series of messages on that theme. This week, I preached from Daniel 6 on, "Worthy of Worship." Daniel's faithfulness to meet with the Lord is a great example of the kind of worship of which God is worthy. One of the famous Bible stories is a result of his obedience, (Daniel and the Lion's Den.)
Lord willing, work is going to continue moving forward on the property this week. The plan is to have the platform built towards the end of this week. Please pray with us for wisdom as we continue to make decisions about building works and completion. Please pray specifically that God will give us wisdom about sanctuary chairs, a pulpit, and a piano. We went to a piano shop yesterday and have gotten some ideas of what we believe God would have us do.
It's fun showing our guests the property when they visit. We have heard many different people say, "God hasn't given the church this great building without a plan to fill it (with people.)" We wholeheartedly agree! We appreciate your prayers for God's work in building that aspect of our church. We love our church family and are thankful for each person God adds to our assembly.
