Home Dedication for Jessica
Jessica will soon be getting her home! But before that Habitat for Humanity is going to host a home dedication to celebrate how God provided and to thank everyone involved.
So please mark your calendars and plan to attend. Bring a small snack to share too. Here are the specifics:
- Date and time: Saturday August 24, 10AM
- Location: 16 Park Pl, Lovettsville, VA 20180
- Bring a small snack/desert to share
This will be a wonderful celebration for us as church to celebrate God's work and his provision. He worked in a big way through so many to provide for this family!
Heavy national and world events
We've had a hard couple of weeks in our country with mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH. Our country is more divided than ever and with each day things seem to get worse. Anger and division and hatred are climbing in our country. Meanwhile things are very dire in Hong Kong as political protests have become violent.
Pastor Jason Lock pastors a partner church of ours in the Great Commission Collective. His church is in Markham, Ontario where he said the local population is about 1/3 Chinese and mostly from Hong Kong. The current events are obviously very traumatic for them. Some of their church members are in Hong Kong right now. Many of their church members still have family there and are concerned for their safety. He said it is a challenging time, but also possibly a ripe time for the gospel. One HK pastor friend told him his church is experiencing significant division in light of the political tension and many church members are skipping services to go to protests.
So many things could be said but I want to just encourage you to pray. Our hope is built on the Rock of Christ. He is the ultimate peace maker and we need him more than ever. Please join me in praying for the church of Hong Kong and for our country. Pray that God will use these events to further his kingdom and in the darkness the church will shine the light of God even more brightly.
You are loved!
