Mississauga Temple Community Church, Mississauga, Ont.
God continues to speak through new people attending. We celebrate that our multicultural ministers have received the paperwork they need to be allowed to visit their home following a seven-year waiting period. Bibiana’s father died last January and she was unable to return to be with her mother at that time, but we are praising God that they have been there this past month.
Pray for the challenges we face as members of our corps have moved away from our area to find affordable housing. Also, with the average “regular” attendance being 1.2 times per month (according to Gallop statistics), it becomes very challenging financially. Add to that the “mega” church draw, and we are feeling the challenges.
Pray that we are a beacon in the community. Christ is the answer, but how do we communicate that? Mississauga is seeing more violence, so may we be a beacon of peace. May we speak into the lives of our daycare families, those who come to us for help through family services and the people in in our neighbourhood who need Christ.
What “convincing proofs” could you offer someone that Jesus is alive today? Do you believe Jesus will return to earth some day? Why does it matter?
