“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:7-9
The year has truly flown by! It is unbelievable that in just a short while, we will be ushering in the New Year. This time of year is a really special opportunity to just reflect on God and all that He has done. While Thanksgiving is not necessarily a Christian holiday, as believers it is a wonderful day to set aside to reflect on the goodness and blessings of God. More than even looking at the material blessings God has given us, it is important to focus on just how much of a blessing God Himself is. It can be easy to get so wrapped up in life that we forget who God is. Truly He has given us the best blessing by sending Jesus to die on the cross. Our sins are forgiven and we have direct access to a relationship with God, nothing that happens in this life can take that away. Praise the Lord for that! This is the hope that our Circuit Riders are busy taking all over the world. There is much going on in these remote areas. Every day there are miracles, both little and big, and hearts being opened to God. You’ll never hear these stories on the news, and some of them you may not even know until you get to Heaven, yet God is moving in mighty and powerful ways. As you celebrate this holiday season, please remember our Circuit Riders and the work that they are doing for the Lord. Encourage your family and friends to pray for them with you! Thank you so much for interceding on behalf of the Circuits and the men and women running them. Have a wonderful month! Blessings!
Jim Maner Sunday School
We thank God that the children are doing great in their Sunday School classes. They participate in every class and some of them came up with some interesting questions from the Bible class that we taught them. We taught them about the ark and after the class one of them gave a comment that people died at that time because they didn’t know how to swim. Please pray for Arif, he stopped coming to Sunday School and we didn’t know the reason. We went to his house and encouraged him and his friends even came and invited him to join our Sunday School but he still won’t come.
