10 Percent

That’s the goal, 10%! Not for giving to the church, though that would be good because according to research average giving is much lower than 10%. The percentage I am referring to is the 2019 goal for the percentage of our church going out into the world on mission!

We have six Go Trips planned to six countries: Mexico, Haiti, Greece, Turkey, Tanzania and Kenya. On these trips (covered with prayer) we will be seeking the lost, serving the poor and sharing the gospel. We are going for and with Jesus! He is our example. We are following him and his command to Go (Matthew 28:18-20).

The Season For Giving

Christmas is a season of giving, but at Singing Oaks in many ways the whole year is about giving. In the benevolence ministry over 5300 people were helped with one or more of the following: food, clothing, rent, utilities, fuel, prescriptions, bus passes, bicycles or some other form of assistance. We also pray and share the gospel with as many who are willing to listen. And there are stories, some of which have great impact on those of us involved. So there is a lot of giving but also a lot of receiving. Here are some stories from the last few months.

Amazed Again!

Last Sunday afternoon was a wonderful day of fun and fellowship at South Lakes Park. God gave us blue skies and great weather. There was face painting, games, music, candy, costumes, hot dogs, real dogs, and of course WATER. And we walked! Some carried heavy containers of water to experience what it is like in Africa. It was all good. Lots of fun and good fellowship!

When I hear that word my mind goes back to TV shows, action movies or books where someone says with great anxiety, “we’re surrounded.” It’s a bad situation! You better say your prayers! Very little hope of making it out alive! It’s also sometimes used that way in the Bible. One of the famous ones is in 2 Kings 6 when the servant of Elisha the prophet got up for an early morning stroll and saw his city was surrounded by a strong enemy force, an army of horses and chariots. I can hear the fear in his voice when he said to his master Elisha, “Oh, my lord, what shall we do?” It seemed hopeless!

Is it also possible to be surrounded by the enemy in the spiritual realm? Jesus encountered powerful demonic forces frequently, and we are to put on the armor of God to fight against spiritual forces in the heavenly realms (Eph. 6). They are unseen, but they are there and may be many!

But there’s Good News! Something else surrounds God’s people!

The Greatest Thing

On one of our recent trips I asked Michele for something to clean my hands. She usually has one of those travel size bottles of sanitizer, but this time she handed me a small packet of hand wipes. We had purchased these while in Greece, and it brought back special memories.

Most people go to Greece for vacation but on this occasion we were there for a different reason. It was Sunday afternoon and we walked into a small park with mainly locals inside. We were specifically looking for someone to talk to and pray for. After greeting a few people we saw a strange sight. A young lady was kneeling and cleaning around and under a public water tap. We walked over (were led over) and started a conversation. She spoke some English, but it was clearly not her first language. Trying to be friendly, we introduced ourselves. We could see that she was poor and possibly homeless. Within the conversation we asked if we could pray for her. She seemed surprised but said yes and shared that we could pray for her job situation. We proceeded to pray that she would find a better job. While praying I perceived that she was watching us very closely and that it was not a typical situation for her. We said goodbye and started to leave. Just a few steps away however, I felt a tug on my heart to go back, so we turned around. She was still looking at us!
