God is at work at BCC. God is at work around the world through the missionaries we support. God is at work through our ministers and staff and the work they do each day. God is at work through your acts of service and the lives that you touch. I am thankful for our former shepherds, for their hearts of service and the way God continues to use them in ministry. We are blessed to live in a community that provides a positive environment for families. Yet many of our neighbors have struggles, and many do not know Jesus. There is much work still to be done, and I believe God has bigger plans for BCC. As we prayerfully consider plans to execute our growing young initiative over the coming months, I ask for your prayers for wisdom and God’s direction. I also ask that you consider how you will serve. We anticipate there will be expanded opportunities for service, and we solicit everyone’s participation. Together, with God’s help, we can touch many lives with the good news of the gospel.
In closing, I want to thank you for your support and encouragement. Thank you for your financial support that has enabled us to meet our budget thus far. Thank you for the way you step up when needs are made known. I am humbled to serve as one of your shepherds, and it is a privilege to serve with my fellow shepherds. May we always seek to do His will, and may we always be light unto a dark world.
Take a few minutes—without distractions—to reflect on this story. Finish your reflection time in prayer. Please pray especially for our Shepherds, as they continue to lead us.
