Island Ministry team (Upper Buvuma Islands)

The vision of the International Mission Board is to see a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ

Praise and Prayer Request for the Week of 15th-21st May
Give Thanks for Everything!
Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Are you able to give thanks in the middle of the storm?  When difficulties arise, do you view them as opportunities of spiritual growth?  If not there are room for spiritual growth.  We can look at adversities as the weights and pullies which results in strong spiritual muscles.  Seek areas where you can leave your cares into the capable hands of our Lord and Savior Jesus.  We can trust him to direct our lives.  There is no need to push our selfish addenda, but trust the One who paid the price of our eternal salvation for all things. 6”Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your care on Him, because He cares about you”. (1 Peter 5:6-7)
