It’s Monday morning and I am trying to get back into the swing of things. Recovering from the India trip has been a little more difficult this time for some reason….maybe it was the schedule? Or the temperature? But I have a head cold and sinus issues and I’m still trying to get my sleep pattern back to USA times (and then there’s Daylight savings next weekend)! Currently I’m in NC, and I should be here until about the 16th before heading to Florida.
We finalized our Love Feast 30-hour Fast Forward this year with several from the NC Wave team sharing in the event. We began the fast at noon on Friday and ended at 6pm on Saturday. Everyone fasted on their own this year from their homes and then we gathered together at Golden Corral of share a meal together to celebrate God’s blessing and what He accomplished through the fasting times. This year our totals raised during this Fast Forward season was $3000.00.
We will split it so that Daniel’s school fees are paid and then the rest will go toward helping children of gangs and our deaf students through Vision 2 Hear El Salvador. Thank you all very much for all that you have given to make this effort so fruitful!
The 20 Year Anniversary Celebration
As many of you know, Vision 2 Hear is in partnership with The Korean Baptist Church of Havelock, NC, which is the only ethnic church located in Havelock. For the last 20 years, The Korean Baptist Church has been faithful in reaching out to Korean/Americans with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This past Sunday several churches gathered to celebrate the wonderful blessing HKBC has been and to pray forward with all that God has awaiting.
The NC WAVE Team kicked things off with a couple of Sign Language songs, which really got things moving along quickly. With performances from The Havelock Baptist and Jacksonville Baptist, the 2-hour event was filled with songs and worship of the Lord, telling of His great worth and praising Him for all He has done through the ministry.
Reverend James Lee from Denver Korean Baptist Church in Denver Colorado was the keynote speaker for the evening and gave a great message about the real riches stored up in Heaven when we give our all to Jesus. He spoke in English and Korean, self-translating along the way.
As the worship service closed, it was far from over. We still had the food and cake to enjoy. With tons of Korean cuisine to choose from, everyone was quite satisfied by the end of the night having taken in everything from kimchi to eggrolls. As a token of remembrance, each family received a small hand towel from the HKBC.
Thanks for your continued prayers for the Havelock Korean Baptist Church and the First Baptist Church of Havelock as we continue our partnership in reaching this county and surrounding areas with the gospel.
