Our theme, as a church, is "The Journey Continues". We live in a world of constant transitions and we find it hard at times to adapt or keep up with all that is changing. For KBC it has been a season of "good-byes" for a variety reasons. We have said good-bye and looked to the assurances and comfort of God. We have said "good-bye" because of retirement moves and watching all our church family take the next steps as God leads. We will once again on July 30th offer blessing and send off as our missionaries part of the Djankpa family (Gladys, Jethro, Othniel, and Shalom) who will return to Ghana on August 11th. Francis will follow this November December after defending his dissertation.
Transitions are a part of the journey known as life. A journey implies that while there could be a destination in mind the entire route may not be known. We go as pilgrims. That is where the adventure sneaks in even when we have our eyes fixed on God's leading. There are always surprises along the way, even if we think we know where we are going as individuals and as the church.
Simply put, the journey of life is a journey of continuing faith knowing that God is present and will help us to respond to the transitions that will surely come. Never forget that each of us is needed no matter our stage in life. You are gifted to serve and you are needed. So open the eyes of your heart and look around. How is God calling you to serve?
Be on the lookout for "prayer opportunities" this summer. God is looking and we are invited to join in. So please commit to pray faithfully and patiently, waiting for God to act so you can join in as God leads in His own wondrous way.
God bless you as you continue the journey in the coming months.
As we journey together,
