If you then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things that are above, not on thing that are on the earth.
For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Cedric Moss, our pastor at Kingdom Life Church, spoke on this passage this morning. What better opportunity to remind ourselves of why we are here and doing what we are doing! This is the passage that inspired us as we began our journey into full-time ministry work, and today it is a reminder to keep our focus on things above, not on things on this earth!
Before the past, the now and near future!
If you haven’t done so already, consider “liking” us on Facebook! We are working on being more purposeful on updating our family ministry Facebook page frequently. We will use it to keep people who don’t check our blog up-to-date on our ministry. Of course it won’t be as detailed as this blog, but we will at least put up some highlights.
We are praying BEC (Bahamas Electric Company) shows up this coming week to finish installing wiring and a meter so we can finish the electrical upgrade here at camp. They were suppose to be here 2 weeks ago. Getting this electrical upgrade done has been a long, hard process, but we have learned a lot from it. Please pray they come this week to finish the job and that everything works out well.
The staff cottage is getting closer to being finished (see pictures of the cottage below). It is looking really nice. Tim is working on getting permission from the Bahamas government to have a spiral staircase shipped in duty free. The spiral staircase will be used to access the loft area of the cottage where the staff will sleep. Please pray for the timely completion of the cottage, funds to furnish it, and that the customs department will look favorably on this request for free duty.
This weekend we will be hosting our first annual Young Adult Weekend here at the camp. The guest speaker is Jay Seegert from Creation Education Center in Milwaukee, WI. We are looking forward to having him and his wife here. Please pray for us as we work the details out for this weekend, that God sends us at least 40 young people for this event, and that God uses this weekend for His glory.
The new ALC website is nearing its “go live” date. Tim and I have been working with the web developer on some of the wording and lay-out issues. It will need more work after it is activated. It is such a challenge trying to communicate via email with designers in the states. It will be a lot easier once we have control of the site ourselves. Stay tuned!
We are also in the works of putting together another ALC newsletter. If you are not on the ALC Newsletter mailing list and would like to be, email us and let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, the past 4 weeks (minus the events from the other 2 blogs of course)!
Happy Birthday, Zachary!
Whew! You made it through three very long catch-up posts. Have a great week!
