Friday, February 26th, 2016

Every year we experience 4 seasons.  We know that it's winter now but spring is right around the corner, followed by summer, and then we'll have the fall.  It's important to have good past memories from former seasons for it's often our past memories that move us into our future blessings.  If we forget all the good things that have happened we may get stuck in a bad season for years.  Joshua was crossing over the Jordan and the Lord told him to pick 12 stones from the river and pile them up on the Promise Land side.  Why do such a thing?  Joshua 6:6-7 "that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’  Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever.”
This event of crossing over the Jordan was to be remembered for the years ahead.  In tough times, hard times, bad times, and sad times they could look again at the stones and remember that God is good.  Let's us remember that in the past the Lord has provided, helped, healed, and made a way where there seemed to be no way.  Choose your memories wisely for we do not know what tomorrow holds but we do know the One who holds tomorrow.  If He did it before then He will do it again.
This Sunday is the last Sunday of Feb. and I'll be sharing on, "It's A Miracle.'  We need to expect a miracle and be ready to obey the Lord to receive a miracle.  Often it's the way that the Lord tells us to travel that hinders us from receiving a miracle.  We like the miracle but we may not like the box that it came wrapped in.
Get ready, get ready, get ready we are a week away from Family Sunday.  Invite someone to be with you and may they encounter the power of God and their life be changed forever.  Then on Saturday March 19th 8:30 am is our annual Men's Breakfast at the Salvation Army church.  Our guest speaker will be the National Director for the Canadian Fellowship of Christian Ministries Pastor David McGrew.  Pastor David will also be ministering on Sunday the 20th of March in our church.
Coming up on the Easter Weekend Mary MacLean has been working hard on a drama presentation.  It will be performed on the Saturday evening of March 26th, more details to follow.  
We have recently had two requests for Water Baptism.  We are working on a time to provide this ministry and if you would desire to be water baptized please contact Pastor Bruce for more details.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
