An E-News Message From Pastor John

Hey everybody!

This past weekend was awesome (I watched the message Sunday night). Josh did a fantastic job! If you missed it go to www.hopefellowship.net/watch. This weekend will be the last message in our series "The Unusual Suspects". Job is our guy and I have a feeling his story is going to be helpful. If you have a friend who is far from God or is going through a very difficult time, this would be a great weekend to invite them!

It's been hard to ignore what's going on in our world, especially as it relates to injustice and terrorism. 21 Christian men were recently martyred because of their faith in Jesus Christ. The media reports have brought this to our attention but it happens everyday somewhere in the world - Christians lose their lives because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Would you keep it in your hearts and join me today in praying for the persecuted Christ followers all over the world AND for those responsible for the deaths and persecutions? May God give grace and courage to those being persecuted and killed and may He reveal himself to those who are far from Him.

Revelation 12:11 (NLT) And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.

As you are praying, remember to thank God for his blessings and pray for our services this weekend. I'm asking God for many to be drawn to Him!

Love to all!
