I don't know about you, but I am sensing a real move of God in our faith community. There are so many exciting things happening and, sadly, some not so good things.
The good things are the current "Thy Kingdom Come" initiative and the wonderful prayer times each evening. Another great thing is the engagement with the Te Ao Ngakau community centre by both people from the community and people from the church. It is inspirational to see and a wonderful confirmation from God that the decision we collectively made to start the centre was the right thing. This whole 'listening to God' thing really works.
The major thing that sits heavy on my heart is Maranatha and her health. It was great yesterday to be able to fast and pray for her (and Uwia and the boys). But in the midst of this I have been encouraged by the incredible love and support that has been shown to the Pauli family. I am so proud of the way the church has responded and I want to thank you all and I ask that you please keep praying for them all.
