Love Gift … Fall 2017
As American Baptist Women Ministries move forward into the year 2018 and focus on our new ministry theme: “Feel”, I am in tune to the scripture focus of Luke 8: 43-48 associated with our new theme.
These scriptures focus on the woman having an issue of blood twelve years, who, upon hearing that Jesus was in her midst, pushed her way to touch but the hem of his garment and she was instantly healed and made whole. We don’t know what the future holds, but as we gather the faith to push our way through, and just “feel” for the presence of the Lord, we will be made whole and have peace.
As you look at the astonishing numbers of our “Love Gift” for NYS by region, thru the periods of January-August 2017, I cant help but “feel” the love!
Awesome job women of God, for your giving is amazing.
Keep up the good work ladies and may the Good Lord Jesus continue to bless you in all areas of your lives, pressed down, shaken together, and running over so that the blessings over take you abundantly so.
