We leave on Thursday (tomorrow) for St. John, N.B and we will visit a place called Reversing Falls.
Return back to the Island on Saturday evening just in time for our anniversary Sunday service. We have been a church family for 10 years!
We will have 7 key speakers at this youth conference Stacy Campbell, Faytene Kryskow, Kayle Mumbly, Jesse Engle, Eddie/April Brown and Tabitha Lemaire.
We want to be in the middle of what God is doing and where He is - nothing less . We are running hard after HIM. This is why we are gathering in Saint John NB for our next national thrust: the REVERSE THE CURSE - SIEGE NATIONAL CONFERENCE. THE REASON: 40 yrs ago, in 1967, a generation ushered in movements. These movements included the sexual revolution, new age movement, women's (choice) movement and a movement of rebellion to authority. Proclaiming to be enlightened, a generation 'Divorced God' and married secular humanism. 40 yrs later we see the devastating results of these movements which were supposed to bring peace, joy and love. Instead they brought death, divorce, sexual disease, drug addiction, perversion and confusion.
THE GOOD NEWS: The good news is tide is turning. From coast to coast we see a movement emerging. A movement of young (and young in heart) who are willing to lay down their lives, and agendas, to see God's dream for Canada come true. A prayer and fasting movement. A movement of young people who are addressing the leaders of our nation on issues of righteousness and morality. A movement of those who are saying, "We are not only going to speak the message but LIVE the message." A movement of radical, hard core, sold out, never looking back, undone, fearless lovers of God. A movement of those that won't just sing the "History Maker" song but who will BE it. A movement of those who will change this nation and the nation will not change them.
I am so excited to be helping out at our church this year with Operation Christmas Child. What a joy it is to fill a simple little shoebox with toys, necessities and a little letter letting them know someone out there is thinking of them this time of year. It's a wonderful thing for children to help with and it teaches them compassion for others. It is my hope and prayer that we will have more boxes collected this year than ever before. If you are interested contact your local Church's and see if they are participating.
What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God's love. This program of Samaritan's Purse provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands—on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ.
National Collection Week is November 12-19.
EDIT: I just had a lady call me from our Church who wants supplies for 10 BOXES!!! YAY!
