IT HAS BEEN REFRESHING
It is good to be back at the keyboard.
THIS WEEK - CHAPTER 4
If you are going to return... RETURN!
God is not in the game playing business. He is serious about sin and serious about loving and walking with you. His call is, in part, asking us how serious we are about these two things. He wants us to see sin as He sees sin. Mainly, that which keeps us out of the best fellowship with HIm. He created us for Himself and longs to love on and walk with us in a way that is best for us and a pleasure for Him.
Let me encourage you to join us on Saturday for an exciting time of fellowship with friends and family. Come and see the new faces God is bringing our way and meet those who God calls His people of EBCI. Visitors are always welcome and those looking for a church family that makes God word a priority and missions a mandate, check us out. For my friends not in Dubai - keep us in your prayers. Even on our best days, your prayers are needed and welcomed.
If you have interest, let us know. We can even accommodate those outside of the UAE to be a part of the team if God calls you. That outside of the UAE, need to contact me personally so I can brief them on the work and commitment level needed.
God is so good.
FRIENDS ARE FRIENDS FOREVER
The picture is from a trip I took my then church group to Nigeria to host a sports camp. This day, where the picture was taken, we were at a local orphanage. I am checking something with Kehinde, who is our group guide for the week. It was just 2 years after this time, I returned to Nigeria and had the joy of officiating the wedding of Kehinde and Comfort. I thank God for the growth I see God has caused in Kehinde's life. I am glad he is able to be here this week. He is in a training conference but hopefully tomorrow we will get to spend most of the day together.
Thank you, God, for giving us friends from all nations and thank you that some of these friends we can call son.
