Ministry is off to a good start--let us give God all of the praise, both for WHO He is, and for WHAT great things He has done!
BIBLE STUDIES: God, through a House of Representative, provided an wonderful place to meet for prayer and study of God's Word.
EXECUTIVE BRANCH MINISTRY: God is providing new ministry opportunities within several of the executive branch offices in Arkansas. Some of these relationships have developed over the last four years, while others are with newly elected leaders and staff. While some relationships are still in their infancy, we rejoice in the new opportunities God is providing to serve our leaders as Christ’s ambassadors.
ASSEMBLY OF GOD CHURCH ENDORSMENT: Capitol Commission was recently endorsed by the National Counsel of the Assembly of God. God is already using this opportunity as a springboard to talk with pastors and legislators from the Assembly of God denomination. One pastor recently told me that he wants to include us in their church mission’s budget. Praise the Lord!
ALL-WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE: Most have heard of, and some have experienced the snow storms, which have hammered Arkansas and other parts of the country. These storms have impacted many in our state including those who work in the Capitol. One political leader after spending many hours driving through snow and ice trying to reach the Capitol from their home was picked up and flown by helicopter to the State Capitol. So what is the praise? God has provided an all-weather, all-wheel drive Subaru to traverse the state of Arkansas with, and Lord willing, and if the creeks don’t rise…I should be able to travel anywhere in Arkansas in all but the most extreme weather conditions.
These are a few of the ways God has recently blessed our life and ministry for His Name sake. These praises remind me that God is always good, and knows what we need even before we can think to ask, and yet God still rejoices in the prayers and praises of the children whom He loves. I encourage you to thank God for all of the great things He has done and is doing in your life and mine.
Thank you for your ministry to us, as we minister to others!
State Director, Arkansas
