Greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus! Hallelujah! Praise His mighty name! We just experienced the gracious arms of God’s warm embrace the entire convention. There was a sweet spirit of restoration flowing throughout our fellowship as pastors, ministers and lay-ministers were encouraged and uplifted by His Word, “Let us not become weary in doing good…” Galatians 6:9. Many of us, if we are truly honest experience burnout, frustration and even a deep desire to give up, but God reminds us in His Word that even some of the greatest men chronicled in the bible struggled with these emotions but never gave up! “We will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Our strength, perseverance and wisdom is in Christ Jesus and though we as an organization continue to have countless needs, we believe that God will always make a way as we are in this together, bringing glory to God!
Gratefully in His service,
Rev. Ben Refuerzo
