10/27 Mommy Packs

On Saturday, Northward an Dual Citizens small groups combined to make mommy packs CityServe. Angela had already worked with her school to collect tens of thousands of diapers for newborn babies. We distributed the diapers to the city of Fremont as well as Santa Rosa county.

People came out to make mommy packs with enthusiasm. I had planned 1 hour for the event but folks got it done in 10 MINUTES!! What do we do next? We celebrated Ben’s birthday and had a great fellowship!!

The next morning pastor Jeremy prayed over the packs and the mothers who will receive them. We asked God used the items, especially the Daily Bread booklet, to strengthen and comfort them!

Thank you all who came out to support the bake sale! We collected over $1700 Flooding Relief Fund. 100% of the money will go out to Convoy of Hope, in the name of Jesus to help those who need it! For photos and videos, visit our facebook group!

 

Christmas 2016

A very 21st century question to ask when reading the account in Matthew 2:1-12 is “what has Jesus done for the wise men that they were willing to travel 1000 miles from Babylon to Bethlehem to see, worship, and offer gifts to a young boy?”

What can a 2-year old boy do for a priestly caste who seemingly have everything the world can offer at the time?

Probably not much.

Yet, this group of wise men are wiling to endure the harshness in the desert. The heat of day and the cold of night. The chapped lips, cracked skins, snakes, scorpions, bandits, dehydration, quick sands, and the uncertainty if their endeavor would actually lead them to what they were looking for: King of the Jews.

How about the Unwise King in Jerusalem, which is merely 5 milesaway from Bethlehem. The Scriptures tells us that when he and the spiritual leaders learned about where the Messiah is they didn’t bother to lift a finger! These are the leaders of a people whom God had shown lovingkindness (hesed) over, over, and over throughout her existence.

What about you, readers of the blog. If you are a believer, I hope you would worship like the wise men did. John 4:23 tells us that God is looking for true worshipers who would worship Him in spirit and truth. If that’s not the church, who else is it gonna be?
