I hope you had a wonderful Feast! I have heard very positive reports from all the Feast sites in Asia. My only regret is that I was not able to be at each Feast site in Asia. This year my family and I attended the Feast in Hyderabad, India and we really enjoyed sharing the Feast with the Indian brethren. I will not repeat the report of the Feast in India here in this article but suffice it to say, it was a wonderful Feast.
Now that the Feast is over, we are back home in our daily and weekly routines facing the challenges of living in a world that is deceived by our adversary, Satan the Devil. Let us not become discouraged by those challenges but rather let’s use those trials and obstacles to grow spiritually (James 1:2-4).
Here in the US we are faced with uncertain economic times and a new president-elect has been selected. We have much to pray about as we move forward from the Feast. Let us remember the admonition that the apostle Paul gave to Timothy, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1 Timothy 2:1-2 NKJV). We certainly do desire a quiet and peaceable environment to finish the work that God has given us to do.
I will be in the Philippines at the end of December for a ministerial meeting and leadership training. I look forward to seeing several of you during my December trip.
