Impact Outreach Ministries- Sunday 6th August 2006 (Day 16)
As the Trinidadians made their
preparations to leave, it was done with mixed emotions. Our
newfound friend Lystra made an impact and left with us her prayers
for each of us within our room, (including our two visitors
Joy-Ann, and Jasmine).
We were then ushered off to our separate meeting
places, where the Bajan went to Reyland Hill, and the Trinis went
to Layou. The separation process had begun. Sis Nicole led in the
special, ‘thank you for the cross’, at Pembroke
Pentecostal Assembly. I was once again given the opportunity
to share my testimony. Bro. Kerwin brought the word: Are we being
profitable? The kingdom of God requires that we work. We must use
what we have been given and increase it, don’t be wicked and
lazy. Use your talents for the glory of the Lord. Come out of your
comfort zone and reach beyond. We must be profitable and not just
Focus on the Kingdom; our ministry is to bless
someone. Whatever you have is to be used for the Lord. Many came
and made the recommitment to the service of the Lord. Communion
was shared and we were on our way again. Back to Layou to join our
Trinidadian brothers and sisters, and what do you know; to share
in a second communion.
was here as we returned that things became just a bit quiet. They
were leaving; they just came. Lunch was used to share our sentiments,
was this how the disciples felt when Jesus was making His goodbyes
as well? Then they were off, with some promises of calls, and St.
Kitts, and anniversaries, and down by the riverside. Our final service
was in the form of testimonies.
Bro. Kelvin shared in devotions, ‘create in
me a clean heart oh God’. Sis. Katherine who would be leaving
then shared that (Rom8: 28) we all go through some trials to be
more like Christ. Thought these situations can be crippling we are
nevertheless useful to the Father. We also witnessed object lessons
of foil, $20 & a pencil, to hammer home the point. These trials
enable us to be there to help others, build up our faith, and show
forth God’s blessings.
