Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
BREAKOUT YEAR 2019!
Making a decision is one thing, making a God-WISE decision is another. People who make God-wise decisions are not short-sighted, they are circumspect and usually far-sighted. They are not impulsive, but exercise one of the fruit of the spirit called “self-control” before making a decision. In short, they don’t make decisions out of temporary feelings, circumstances, and passing emotions.
People who make God-wise decisions surround themselves with spiritually mature people with proven God-wise council. They give permission for proven God-wise people to speak into their situation BEFORE they make a decision. “Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!” (Deuteronomy 32:29 NKJ).
Notice, “…consider their latter end!”. In other words, you need to consider the “latter end” of your decision, because your “latter end” will speak as to whether or not your decision was God-wise or not.
This WEDNESDAY night, our Life Group Director, GUY BECNAL shares his message “DETHRONING THE DEBT DEMON”! Then, on SUNDAY, Pastor BAM brings us all together as he shares his message titled “COMMUNITY OF GIVERS!”. You’ll also see another powerful video testimony! Come and be blessed!
Last Sunday, we dedicated 12 CHILDREN to the Lord! CONGRATULATIONS to all of the families, and may your precious little ones grow healthy, strong, courageous, and prosperous in Christ our Lord! Amen!
Lisa and I celebrate our 25th Silver Anniversary on March 19! Then, we’re driving to Cedar City Utah where I’ll be training 50 emerging leaders, and speaking at Sunday Services at True Life Christian Church, lead by Pastor Pete Akins.
A “BIG” THANK YOU to those who generously gave an Offering towards the NEW HOPE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE Scholarship Fund. We received $3,656 to be seeded towards the scholarships of some worthy students! Pastor Wayne Cordeiro will be awarding our church’s scholarship monies in April. I’ll keep you posted.
Everything on our APP is working, but…we’ve encountered technical glitches on viewing some of the messages on our APP. We are working on it, and it should be fixed soon. Thank You for your patience.
Our RESTROOM EXPANSION project can break out into the construction phase this year! Let’s continue to pray and give towards the CONTRUCTION PHASE! Together WE CAN get this done! As of this writing, we received $42,200! Please make checks to: NEW HOPE LAS VEGAS. On the memo line write: “ADVANCE”; OR you can give through our Website; or APP.
HELP our church reach people for Jesus through YELP! Share something positive about our church, or a short story on how New Hope Las Vegas has touched your life on YELP - and give a 5-Star rating! A New Hoper recently shared: “Absolutely love this church. So much Aloha! Felt welcomed from day 1…worship team is excellent, Pastors are amazing and the hospitality team serves up wonderful food…children’s ministry is top notch, my kids love it. Best place for your whole family.” Thank YOU!
