Today, we celebrated with the believers the 4th Anniversary of Faith Bible Church.
Sadly, in our absence this last summer, we heard that there was some discord among the believers. So, from the time of our return, we have desired to see reconciliation and unity among the believers. Today was a step in that direction.
The theme that Stephen chose for this celebration was “Love One Another.” During this challenge, many of the believers read passages that contained the phrase “Love one another,” beginning with Jesus, and then many exhortations from Paul, Peter, and John.
“Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
1 John 3:18
We hope all the believers will obey this exhortation and truly love one another.
The celebration ended with a “bring and share” potluck. Some of our favorite foods were there, including pansit (a Filipino noodle dish), sticky rice, and chocolate cake (provided by Ginger and Becky). Other treats that Filipinos love were brought, and we would describe them as “interesting.” It was a feast and great way to complete the celebration.
Please pray for this group of believers, that they would truly and whole-heartedly love one another with words and actions. Thank you.
