I asked you to consider supporting the MCF this past Giving Tuesday. You responded generously. Thank you.
I am aware that to give of your finances is a sacrifice. It is a decision to choose between many, many options where best to contribute, to invest the monies that you depend on for your daily needs. I am humbled by the trust that you place in the MCF and I am encouraged that God is with us. So, I have one more request, please pray, please intercede on behalf of the military community, on behalf of the mission that has been given to the MCF. Please.
Many of you are very aware of Jesus parable in Luke 11:5-10 in which He taught us to pray with unrelenting persistence. Such prayer honours God. Such prayer pleases God. Such prayer moves God. So, please pray so that God may be honoured, so that He may be pleased, so that His Spirit moves amongst military community members, so that His Spirit empowers the workers as they share the good news.
One more thank you.
Last week I told you about Innercity Veteran Outreach & Support (IVOS) which is a ministry of Ottawa Innercity Ministries. Some of you responded with your offers of financial support. You have blessed those involved in the ministry. They are both encouraged and increasingly determined to continue the good work that they have been called to do. I visited with them again this past Wednesday and I could see that they were grateful for your expressions of support. Thank you.
Brothers and sisters may the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen (2 Cor 13:14).
President MCF of Canada
