Dear Friends and Partners,
As we make plans to be in Europe for most of April and the beginning of May, we have confidence that the Lord will be with us on the journey. David, the Psalmist, asked two very powerful questions: “Where can I go from Your Spirit” and “…where can I flee from Your presence?” (Psalm 139:7 NKJV). He then proceeded to answer those questions by declaring that there would be no place in heaven or hell, the sea or darkness where His presence would not be with him. In fact, he said, “Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You” (Psalm 139:12 NKJV). We share these verses with you, not only to express our belief concerning the days ahead but also, to encourage you in the fact that God’s presence is assured in the midst of any and all circumstances that you may face.
Concerning our trip to Europe, we ask that you stand in prayer with us as we first fly to London and then on to Geneva. After renting a car we will depart for France where we will minister in several churches with whom we have established special relationships. We will also be with at least one church that is new to us. Following France we will fly to England where we will visit with friends and minister at Christian Life Centre in Croydon.
Last month we shared the testimony of Gabriel Lopez and his miraculous recovery from a shooting attack in Colombia. We knew the testimony would bless you but the response we received was not expected. Many of you wrote about your own miracles and healings that you have received as a result of our ministry. Amazing! One brother in Tennessee placed the newsletter with the photo on his desk where it could easily be seen. As people inquired about the photo, he was able to share the testimony and touch their lives.
We want to take this opportunity to announce the 2nd Annual Gathering at Camp de l’Arche, 41 Fermanagh, St-Elzear (Beauce), Quebec: the 10th through 12th of June. The subject of this gathering will be, “Life That Wins.” Our first gathering was in September 2010 with a tremendous attendance and time of blessing. For those of you who live in the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada, we know that this will be an opportunity to spend time together and in the presence of the Lord. For reservations please call Camp de l’Arche at 418-596-3041 or 418-948-0721 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be sending more information in our May newsletter.
God has been so good to us by placing each of you in our lives. It is our desire that you be blessed and prosperous in the Lord. Remember, His grace is sufficient, His love is everlasting and there is no one like Him. The Psalmist wrote these words concerning our God, “for the LORD GOD is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11 NKJV).
