PRAYER / PRAISE BOOKLETS…Over 200 booklets were distributed at last week’s Thanksgiving service at Atherton High School.   We appreciate those who assisted in handing these out getting them distributed to numerous churches.  URGENT! Stop reading now! We somehow printed last year’s booklet!   I apologize for the inconvenience and in a few weeks we will be sending the corrected version out to our supporting churches.    E-mail me at bhill40482@aol.com and let us know how many you need.   I will use the list of those taking several copies and send the same amount.

Central Kentucky Churches of Christ enjoyed a day of fellowship with Bro. Orell Overman hosted by the Ebenezer Church of Christ, Sunday November 21st.  Bro. Overman, who is 93 years old, preached at both morning and evening services.  A basket dinner provided food for all after the morning services as well as before the evening service.  What a blessing it was to each who were able to hear this man of God. And how convicting were his words spoken in the power of the Holy Spirit. It was also a blessing to be with Orell’s son Joe and enjoy his message in song.

SPECIAL REPORT FROM PRAYER/PRAISE BOOKLET – We will attempt to highlight one entry in our prayer/praise booklet each month for the benefit of those accessing the internet but not having a hard copy of the booklet.

This Booklet of Prayer/Praise (2010) is being DEDICATED to FAITHFUL SUPPORTERS Of MISSIONS

You may or may not know it, but the words mission, missions, or missionary are not found in the  Bible.  Though they are not Bible words, they sure have become a part of the Christian vocabulary.  Though the word missions is not found in the Bible, one thing is for certain: it sure is illustrated and commanded in Scriptures:

“…the Lord is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

The last command given by Jesus Christ is found in Mark 16:15  “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.”   Jesus had a world vision and for us to be a New Testament Church, we to need to re-capture the vision.     It consists of 3 stages:

  1. We Must Visualize! (John 4:35)   “lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are already white unto harvest.”
  2. We Must Agonize! (Matthew 9:37)  “…the harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.  Therefore, PRAY the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
  3. We Must  Evangelize! (Psalms 126:5,6)  “Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.  He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with Him.”

We praise the Lord for you who continue to be Faithful Supporters of Missions!    Your work does not go unnoticed by the Lord as He encourages each of us to
