Greetings in the wonderful grace of the Lord Jesus Christ! I hope everyone who attended the California convention will continue to unleash the flame and power of the Holy Spirit as we spread the gospel to the uttermost ends of the earth! We were reminded to remain steadfast in our vision to strengthen California, for in doing so we can only get better in serving worldwide. It was also an exciting time at this convention with new “firsts”: as in adopting our organization name, International Assemblies of the Firstborn; unveiling our spirit-dove logo, encouraging our young families to attend convention by providing a family day and VBS for their children and lastly the appointment of someone to focus solely on the needs of California.
I want to sincerely thank all those who faithfully attend and support our convention. I am especially grateful for your participation in our election process and giving me a vote of confidence for another two years. We have much to do in the coming years but I prayerfully anticipate achieving much for we “can do all things through Christ” who strengthens us!
I can’t believe how busy we have been over these last several months and now we are preparing for the ministerial conference to be hosted by New Hope Christian Center in Lomita. I am excited about the preliminary plans for our conference as we ride this spiritual momentum–“Renewed Passion”.
May our precious Lord bless you and His favor shine upon you.
Gratefully in His service,
Reverend Ben Refuerzo
IAFB General Superintendent
