Your Loving Deeds
As we move toward a new year, we are encouraged as we also look back at God’s faithfulness. We are comforted by the reality that in 2018, He will continue to be with us in ministry, service, and outreach!
In the coming year, our 20/20 VISION emphasis for the USA Eastern Territory will remain focused on:
PEOPLE – Our mission is to reach people! What is God calling you to do in this new year to reach the lost?
PROGRAMS – Our movement has used a wealth of programming to reach the masses of people! What is God asking you to initiate in order to impact your community for His Kingdom?
PROVISIONS – Our mandate is to support the less fortunate. How will you respond to God’s leading when He calls you to sacrifice for others?
Mark 6:30–44 speaks to these areas of focus in Jesus’ own ministry:
Jesus “… saw a large crowd” (vs. 34a). He saw PEOPLE and invested in them.
He “… began teaching them many things” (vs. 34c). Jesus used PROGRAMMATIC opportunities to reach people.
Christ “… gave them (fishes and bread) … to set before the people” (vs. 41b ESV). He shared the PROVISIONS that had been gathered and gave to those in need.
Thank you for all that YOU have done for the Kingdom of God in 2017. We rejoice in knowing that in 2018, the officers, soldiers, adherents, employees, and volunteers of this territory will be faithful to God’s leading!
“We always thank God for you and pray for you constantly. We never forget your loving deeds as we talk to our God and Father about you, and your strong faith and steady looking forward to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ” —1 Thessalonians 1:2–3 (TLB).
