Giving is a Blessing

We sure had a lot of fun on Give NOLA Day, one day to give as one! What an awesome day to celebrate giving. With the generosity of 21 friends, we raised $1915 in one day!

This year, we included live videos of volunteers in our ministry to share what the ministry means to them.

Here is my friend, Candy, she shared right before catching a bus to Mobile, Al where God has a new adventure for her.

He is risen!!!

We had a blast this April celebrating our risen Lord!!!! On April 6 we participated in the St Bernard Parish Irish Italian Islenos parade with the help of 11 volunteers we distributed 3,100 Gospel packets! Its so cool to meet kids in the parish and see them wearing the Gospel bracelet!

On Palm Sunday we coordinated a Kids Worship program and evangelistic outreach! When we think of Palm Sunday and the children praising the Lord years ago, we are overjoyed to see the children lead praise and worship in a church service. God really used the children and they came through with a five star performance!!!!

Who’s Your Super Hero?

Click photo to play song

Jesus truly is the Super Hero – for real! Nothing make-believe or pretend about Jesus!!!!

If He is not already, He can be your Super Hero too! He came into the world from His lovely, perfect home, Heaven. He came to rescue you from the punishment of sin.

Do you know what sin is? Sin is choosing our own selfish way over God’s perfect and good way. Lying, stealing, cursing, fighting, even disobeying your parents… these are all examples of sin.

We are all born with this problem and the punishment is separation from God forever. That’s why He sent Jesus to rescue us from the punishment of sin.

Because Jesus is the Son of God and is sinless, He took your punishment for you by dying on a cross, they buried Him in a tomb (cave), and he rose again on Sunday morning!

He came back alive and now He lives in Heaven. Because He lives in Heaven we can pray to God and admit our sin. God promises that anyone who believes in Jesus as the Savior from the punishment of sin, God will save them! It’s a promise! God made this promise several times in His true book, the Bible (see Acts 16:31 and Romans 10:13). God never lies or breaks a promise. So you can know, if you believe in Jesus as your Savior from the punishment of sin, He is your Super Hero too! There is no one else in the entire universe that can save you from the punishment of sin!

Scantity of Life

I know that Sanctity of Life Sunday has come and gone for 2019. However, the life of a little one is someone to cherish everyday. I am SO grateful that I knew the value of human life when I was a lady and the doctor offered me the option of an abortion. I get teary eyed just thinking how blessed Phil and I are to have our two sons, daughter-in-laws, and grandsons. The gift of life keeps giving!!!!

Here is a great sermon on the Sanctity of Life by Ray Pritchard.

Gladys Wanted to Help Kids with Her Translation Skills

 

Our friend and partner in ministry, Lyn Oerting, called us 2.5 years ago and asked if we could help a lady she met at the Global Maritime Center in New Orleans (Global Maritime is a ministry to seafarers and maritime workers in port in New Orleans).

Gladys Burgos worked on a Carnival Cruise line as a coordinator for the kids club. She was nearing retirement and expressed a desire to serve the Lord through her gifts of children’s work and Spanish translation.

Gladys assists at our neighborhood Good News Club to complete TCE Level 1 requirements.

Lyn knew that her talents would benefit Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) and contacted CEF of Latin America and learned there was interest but Gladys would need CEF training. The first step was to complete the TCE® Level 1® course. Lyn contacted us and we made arrangements with Gladys to provide the TCE training each time her cruise ship would dock in New Orleans!

Now, 2.5 years later, she is serving full-time for CEF of Latin America and this week (August 4) is instructing in her very first TCE Level 1 course for Latin America  that she actually helped translate!
