But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)
Ephesians 2:4-5 NLT
Because of God's mercy and the richness of His favour and grace towards us that we can shout from the rooftops, and claim with full confidence, that we are saved. God has forgiven us and brought us into a right relationship with Himself.
We are so blessed and we all have a testimony about the difference God has made in our lives. We all have a story of what God is doing in our lives. He's not through with us just yet; but our lives and our hearts are open to see God change us and mould us to make us more like Jesus.
As a church we have being doing HOTS (Healing on the streets) for 5 years now led by Dave and Sue Hall. They feel that the time has come for them to lay this down after our November HOTS and allow someone else the opportunity to do something that reaches the lost and lonely, those who need encouragement or are without Christ. They need Jesus just like us. Someone needs to hear YOUR story.
So thank you Dave and Sue for all that you have done over the years and your commitment to be there and encourage others to be part of this ministry on the streets of Petersfield. We have prayed with many to give comfort and encouragement, we've seen some healing and often given a 'word in season'. We've been out on a Saturday morning, come rain or shine once a month standing at the corner of the market square declaring that God is good...all the time.
Just because we are winding down HOTS means we don't want to lose the opportunity to be regularly out on the street testifying to our faith. So we would like to ask you if you have a particular passion to do some 'street work' of some kind- we guess it will be something completely different to HOTS but, nonetheless, a street team that will go out and share the good news that Jesus saves.
If this is you, or it could feel that God is calling you to take up this ministry then speak to Mike (or Gerry or John) and let's talk together what your vision could look like. A lot of groundwork has been done already so it's a fantastic adventure to continue with a new approach.
Put this on your prayer list...pray about it - God may just call you...YES YOU! Have a great week.
