Romans 8:28 reads:“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Bad times are not always only bad. Sometimes, God brings about bad times in His people’s lives so that they spend quiet, quality time with Him and His Word.
I am very glad to give an update about our church. Ever since the lock-down started we have been continuing our online meetings. It has brought blessing to the church. Of course, we have now started physical meetings such as house fellowships and visitation, as well.
“Nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:39b.
We have been continuing our weekly in-person worship services. Coming together as the body of Christ has been a blessing.
We have also been continuing our online worship services, children’s services, Bible studies, and prayer meetings.
We have been reaching out to a family since the lock-down started. It is a married couple with their son and daughter. They are now coming to our church. Last month, they accepted the Lord as their personal Savior!
Calvary Chapel Bible College Conference
We had a wonderful two day CCBC student conference last month. Almost 95% of the students attended the conference. Some of the Calvary Chapel local church young adults/teens also attended the conference. Apart from the conference we did Gospel outreach in a village. We also went hiking in the mountain with our students and some local young adults/teens.
God is great! He does everything perfect in His perfect time!
For a long time, I have been sharing about a specific area. We were praying that God would work in this area and He did! During the past 2 months, God has done amazing things! He has turned a small Bible study into a church! Every week, over 18 people are gathering to worship God. I want to thank everyone that had been praying for this area. A 3rd semester student of our Calvary Chapel Bible College and his wife (who are members of our church) are now serving there.
It’s my pleasure to share an update about our church. We have been continuing our weekly online services (prayer meetings, worship services, young adult fellowship, and children’s fellowship). We have also started in-person church services at our new location!
Praise God for technology! Though we are unable to gather together at the church building because of the pandemic, we can be one body of Christ in the Spirit. We have Women’s, Children’s, and Young Adult Fellowships; Bible study and prayer meetings; and our weekly worship services through Zoom. Nothing can hinder us from worshiping our God.
Hebrew 10:24-25 Reads: And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. (NKJV)
As the Bible verse above says, we (our C. Bible Church family) have been trying to connect and have fellowship with each other and worship our dear Lord together through online meetings. We have Bible study, prayer meeting, worship service, young adult fellowship, children’s fellowship and women’s fellowship online.
Acts 20:35 Reads: I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ NKJV
Psalm 63: 1-5 reads: O God, You are my God;Early will I seek You;My soul thirsts for You;My flesh longs for YouIn a dry and thirsty landWhere there is no water.So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,To see Your power and Your glory.Because Your loving-kindness is better than life,My lips shall praise You.Thus I will bless You while I live;I will lift up my hands in Your name.My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. (NKJV)
Just as Psalm 63:1-5 above says, during this season for so many missionaries, pastors, leaders and believers, all around the world, that have been busy with work most of the time rather than intimacy with God, it has been especially good to spend time with God and His Word and in prayer.
Although we are not able to gather together at one place as a church to worship the Lord, we can be one in the Spirit and worship Him regardless of the place and location. After all, the Church is His believers. Because nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. Amen!
Praise God for the time visiting we had last month! It was a great blessing to visit, share and encourage our brother, Majhiya, and his family at their Calvary Chapel. The fellowship is growing and neighbors are coming to the church.
