Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
Thank God, I’m in relatively good health right now for my age. But, I’m finding that “the older I get, the more intentional I need to be about maintaining my health” the best I can.
I’m not sure when I became more “aware” that we need to fight the good fight of faith for our health and wellness (i.e. physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally). In fact, I’m not sure when the fight for my health and wellness began, or became more real in my life. It didn’t even dawn on me that a health and wellness battle was being waged beginning from childhood.
Bottom line: There is a fight of faith for maintaining wellness, and good health. “Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called…” (I Timothy 6:12). My point is, when a person is young, they need to be intentional about their health. As they get older, they need to be “more” intentional”. My wife, recently shared that she met a mother visiting her son in the hospital. Her 30 something year old son had a heart attack.
Respectfully - too many young people are getting diseases and health conditions usually associated to old age. Suffice to say, the fight of faith for our health and wellness doesn’t begin when we are old. It begins when we are young. More on this in next week’s blog.
Did you know that our SPIRIT OF KINDNESS ministry, which is lead by ROGER RAMOS - aims to serve our community in practical ways, and share the gospel to those outside our church walls? In fact, in the month of May…53 New Hope Las Vegas volunteers went to serve and feed 741 people at the Shade Tree, Las Vegas Rescue Mission, and other community organizations. Our MISSION’S TEAM also went out to evangelize, and reported 12 Salvations, and 21 Healings! AWESOME!
If you want to get involved with our SPIRIT OF KINDNESS ministry, or MISSION’S TEAM…go to our Connection’s Counter, or call our church office.
PASTOR LISA shares a powerful message titled “FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT” at our WEDNESDAY NIGHT service this week! Pastor Lisa is bringing a SPECIAL GUEST from the hospital she ministers at to share an incredibly powerful and inspiring testimony! You’re not going to want to miss this! You’re really going to be blessed! Then…
If you’re in one of life’s storms, On SUNDAY (July 1), I want to encourage you with my message titled “YOU’LL GET THROUGH THIS”! Remember, reach out and invite people closer to Jesus!
It’s not just water, it’s “what kind of water” you drink. Not all water is the same, just like not all gas you put in your car is the same. It’s not just the quantity of water, it’s the quality of water you drink. Our church has a Kangen 8 “water ionizer” that produces freshly filtered, ionized, alkaline, and micro-clustered water! Get 8.5, 9.0, or 9.5 Ph level at our Hospitality counter before and after services. “Micro-clustered”, means that the water molecules are smaller than normal so that it is better and more quickly absorbed into your organs AND brings more oxygen into your blood system. Drink at least half your body weight in ounces EVERYDAY! NET proceeds go towards our church’s ADVANCE fund (which helps with building improvements, equipment purchases etc.)!
