Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you,

if you have faith and do not doubt,

not only can you do what was done to the fig tree,

but also you can say to this mountain,

‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’

Yesterday was a difficult weather day.  Thankfully, we in this area did not have any significant problems, but hundreds of people in areas close to our area did.  Please pray for them and then work to help they in they way God wants you to help – prayer, finances, clean-up, rebuilding, yard work, food, etc.  Ask.  God will lead you.

I’m thankful to hear that several local churches have new staff members this week.  May God richly bless both the staff members and the churches.
