It has been a great joy to listen to God’s word come through the Book of Ephesians this summer. As you reflect upon where we have come, you may remember all the visual aids in the front of the sanctuary.
We began our life with Christ, sitting. We sit because that is where God has placed us, in the midst of His mighty work through Jesus. All that we have is through Christ—FORGIVNESS, REDEMPTION, HOLINESS, BLAMELESSNESS, ADOPTION an INHERITANCE, HOLY SPIRIT, BELONGING, PURPOSE, GRACE, MERCY, and GIFTS all of which are from God through Jesus Christ His Son. We sit among all this because all this has been given to us through faith in Christ.
It is with great anticipation that we write this note to share the good news about the upcoming Africa mission trip! God has had his hand on this trip from the very beginning. We wondered how it is that God would choose to send people from the Moose Lake area all the way to Africa-yet He has. Our team of 5 people has been active in prison ministry in MN for a number of years. God has been preparing our hearts for this trip as we share the good news of Jesus Christ to the inmates of the 3 prisons in this area and one in Duluth. As we have been studying Ephesians, we know that God asks us to be light in the darkness. Ephesians 5:8-9 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord”. We can’t even imagine a place with more darkness than the prisons in Malawi Africa. It is with humble spirits that we know that God will provide all that we need to accomplish His plan to reach the inmates in Africa and teach pastoral teams to lead the program after we leave.
