It’s all about You, Jesus
And all this is for You
For Your glory and Your fame
It’s not about me
As if You should do things my way
You alone are God and I surrender
To Your ways
Jesus, lover of my soul
All consuming fire is in Your gaze
Jesus, I want You to know
I will follow You all my days
For no one else in history is like You
And history itself belongs to You
Alpha and Omega, You have loved me
And I will spend eternity with You
Yes, another song that we sing at Kingdom Life Church! As I listen to this song for the fifth time this morning, my heart is encouraged. The lesson in the song is so important as we need to constantly adjust our perspective in life. Indeed our focus as we go about our daily life needs to be on bringing glory to God.
Ministry Team Building
This week God gave us yet another glimpse of how He is still at work in The Bahamas. We were blessed and encouraged as we met with the director of Great Commissions Ministries. Great Commissions Ministries feeds and ministers to children, the poor, the homeless, alcohol and drug addicts, and other needy people of the Bahamas. In that meeting we also got to meet William who has a great testimony of how God saved him from a life of drugs, alcohol, homelessness, and basic depravity. He is now serving in full time ministry with Great Commission Ministries where he is seeking to help others who are now where he used to be.
The purpose of our meeting with Great Commissions Ministries was to see what their needs are and how our ministry here at the ALCamp can partner with them and their ministry. We have a lot of mission teams coming to the island, and many of them are new and have no previous relationships with local ministries with which to serve. We have felt the need for a long time now to get out into the community to see what real needs are out there and start connecting those who come here on mission teams with those in need in the Bahamian community. Meeting with GCM was eye opening for us and very beneficial as we seek to connect mission teams with needy people on New Providence Island. We are so excited about future partnerships with this ministry.
This next week we meet with Willie Mae Pratt Detention Centre for Girls to assess their needs and how we can help them. Meetings are in the works for the Simpson Penn Detention Centre for Boys and with Princess Margaret Hospital and Doctor’s Hospital. Please pray for us as we meet with these organizations and establish/further establish our relationship with them.
This week under the “Happening/Up-and-Coming” we share information on:
- Support/Promotion trip (where we are with our fundraising and an itinerary)
- Progress of the staff cottage construction
- Youth Outreach that starts October 10th.
Under the “Picture Update” tab above we share the last two week’s events in pictures. There are a lot of pictures of the Joy Bible Camp Reunion that was held September 27th. It was an awesome evening!
