One For All

2015 COVER

I Peter 3:18-22
Prayer: God for us, we confess that we work as if all depends on us. We confess that all too often we seek our own salvation. As we journey towards the resurrection of your Son, forgive us the temptations of such pride and reveal to us how you are with us, reconciling all the world. For you alone are our savior. Amen
Question: When are you most tempted to do something on your own?

  1. Dear our Pr/Bishop/Elder/Director /Deacon/Mr/Mrs in our Lord Jesus Christ, Most beloved greetings to you in the name that is above all names,the name of our savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
    I am pastor Orenge from Kenya. The lord spoke peacefully in my heart and gave me a responsibility to serve Him and the community. In Kenya I started to serve Him as five years as at now. I have given my life unto the Lord to use me as a vessel to His holy work. As I am serving the community church I meet many challenges especially for the needy orphans whom have lost their beloved parents and it took me much of time to think of what shall I do concerning this matter. Finally I humbled my self to God since He was Himself chose me as a vessel and prayed to Him to give me a vision and direction on what to do to orphans.
    The lord spoke to me to bring them together into the Church to comfort,care and show love to them.(2nd Corinthians 1:4). So far the Church accommodates 33 healthy and sickly Orphans together. Their Humble prayers and kind requests are the basic needs like;Food,shelter,clothing,schooling and health care,and put them in your grand list.(Mathew 25:34-36).Please,our Dearest Brethren in Christ,it is our humble and kind request for your blessing donation to these children will be of Highly a appreciated.Thank you for your concern.
