God is Sovereign

"... acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men..."-Daniel 4:25

"Yay! Elvie applied for a new re-entry permit in the USA!" It was April 10 in New York, and Elvie's permit was to expire the next day. Just in time, God provided.

   It all started last November, when I had pulled PJ's passport and international documents from our permanent files so they could include his fingerprints. We cried out to the Lord, "Why?" when these papers disappeared, a few days later. God had a plan.

   In February we finally had PJ's and Abby's new passports, etc., and my new Philippine visa. Yet while looking over Elvie's papers, I was shocked to see that her re-entry permit to the USA was about to expire. Last minute, God provided tickets to the USA, as this document can only be renewed inside the USA.

   While there, Elvie spoke at a dozen or so churches, schools, etc., and shared our financial dilemma. Way back in November, we did not know that the owner of our school's property was going to move the final date of sale for the property up from Dec'02 to June '02. But God did. And in God's sovereign plan, he devised this way for the funds to be found...before June.

That does not Compute

JOIN ME FOR A RECENT INTERVIEW AT BLC:

SAM-"President Barner, I own a computer training firm. Would you like to be one of our accounts? You could use our computers for free, in exchange for a low per-student monthly fee."

(The offer seemed satisfactory, especially since our computer teacher, resigned due to his taking a full-time pastorate. But I had to turn down the offer.)

PAUL-"Sir, we are a Christian school. All our teachers must be believers. They set a Christian example by their very lifestyle, as well as in what they teach. But thanks for the offer."

BLC: QUALITY, CHRISTIAN & VALUES-BASED

QUOTE OF THE MONTH:

"I'll post an extra "C" note in the mail...
so your Colonel won't have a hissyfit". -Dr. K.

PRAY, FAST & EVANGELIZE!

"Pastor Paul, I and forty pastors will fast and pray at your church/school, okay?"

"SURE!"

" I also have 40-60 men who'd like to go door-to-door telling people about Jesus for 3 hours around your church/school, okay?"

"YOU BET!"

So they came. They prayed. They fasted. They spread the Gospel. Their prayers and fasting reached to God's throne in heaven. Since the prayer warriors came on Monday, God used their prayers to empower the evangelists on Saturday. God moved, as dozens accepted Jesus into their hearts.

HOOK-BOOK-LOOK-TOOK

I'll be training Pastor Ezer, our Associate Pastor, in cottage prayer. He'll daily visit homes, pray for each family & study the Bible. His approach will use a HOOK (ice breaker); BOOK (Bible passage); LOOK (analyze passage), and TOOK (apply meaning to their lives). When he reaches 8 in a group, it'll become a cell group. Once the cell grows to 16, it'll start a new cell group.
