When we arrived at the Community Center last Sunday to set up the room for worship, we found the doors locked. It just so happened that we had 3 attendees visiting that day for the first time. Thankfully, chairs were spotted just outside the Center and preaching from the book of Joel was heard under the open sky :). About an hour later, the doors were opened and we had goodies with good coffee. What seemed an unpleasant, uncomfortable situation turned out to be a memorable event — with the Lord granting a right perspective and a thankful heart.
The 3 visitors last Sunday were brought by one of our regular attendees who was just recently saved. We have been having a weekly Bible Study at her home now for about four months; and, we praise the Lord for the fruit we are seeing in her life.
One of the 3 visitors came to join us for worship this morning; and, she is considering joining our weekly Bible Study! We do pray that the Lord will draw her to commit to studying the Word with us. If so, our plan is to walk her through the “Story of Hope,” a biblical overview of the Scriptures with key lessons from Genesis to the Gospels.
“May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us– yes, establish the work of our hands” (Psalm 90:17).
Truly, it is God who gives the increase — it is He who makes things grow (I Corinthians 3:7).
