NOTE FROM CANDY...
Just a note to tell you how much we love you all! What a blessing you are to the Body of Christ! Your unique flavor is an essential ingredient in the wonderful recipe God is cooking up! My prayer for you is that you would see yourself the way your Daddy God sees you...the finished product! Don't let this world or the hum-drum of daily life dull your perception of what a marvelous creation you are (Ps. 139)! You are God's perfect, wonderful plan and He doesn't make mistakes!
I hope you are all making plans to come be with us for Campmeeting 2011! It is just not the same without you! We are so excited about what God has in store!
We love you and we're lifting you Up!
A Note From The Bishop:
" I heard the Lord say, there is a wave of His Spirit coming to the churches. A wind of refreshing by His Spirit. A breath of life for those who will receive it and will carry it out to a lost and dying world. Be prepared to burst forth with joy and song, all day long, not just for a month. Even now you have felt a silent excitement, not knowing what it was about. This is that! This is what is coming, a beginning of events to prepare My church for My Glory, says the Lord."
I can see the church coughing as though they have something caught in their throat. We must expell the stale air of the past trials to receive and contain what God is speaking of today.
I also hear this, "Holiness, holiness, is what I long for, holiness is what you need."
God is looking for a willingness to serve with an open heart of repentance. "A broken and humble heart."
He that has an ear to hear, listen what the Holy Spirit is saying to you, the church. Don't you know that YOU are His house, His church, not a building?? You are portable!!
Our personal standard has to be raised. A higher level of grace and mercy must be extended. Look at who God is by what He says in Galatians 5:22,23 and 1 Corinthians 13.
I'm reminded of the prophet that told the widow to gather pots for an outpouring of oil. I feel that is what God is saying to us today. You have heard it said so many times that whatever God can put through us, He will get to us!
Loving you through Christ,
