Another year is history as 2019 drew to a close and the firm but often unseen hand of God has written another chapter in the history of mankind. It is very comforting to know that what happens in the New Year will not take God by surprise, though what happens may be a surprise to us.
As we usher in the Year 2020, let us do so with the assurance of God’s strength to run with endurance the race set before us.
In this regard, I wish to remind you that the AMCF North American Region’s Annual Week of Prayer (WOP) is scheduled for 26-31 January 2020.
The constant need for our steadfastness in fulfilling the Great Commission in the armed forces is ever before us. The upcoming WOP therefore provides an opportunity to all of us in the Region to assemble and to pray while encouraging others to join in corporate prayer. Likewise, it provides the opportunity to visit and evangelize whilst bringing the needs of individuals, families, forces and nations to our Lord and Saviour in prayer.
Let us therefore embrace this opportunity as we launch out collectively into the New Year with the assurance of God’s love and faithfulness.
