Newsletter 11/29/11

Connections are being made through UniteBoston.com – a young woman found a ride home to New York for Thanksgiving via our website!

UniteBoston is helping to make valuable connections across the Christian community in this area! Here’s a cool story –  A friend of mine was trying to find a ride home to Rochester, New York for Thanksgiving – she posted about this on the UniteBoston forums.  Another individual from the Boston Justice House of Prayer saw this opportunity on the UniteBoston newsletter, contacted her and was able to give her a ride! It’s so encouraging to hear about these connections that are being made with our forums and events calendar which provide a platform for communication across the body.

Journey Church helped pack turkey baskets for the Cambridge community with the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House

On November 19th, eight members of Journey Church lifted, carried, passed, and bagged Thanksgiving baskets with the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood house. It was a joy to help families in the area enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to. This month Journey Church has also been blessed by Pastor Kent’s teaching on spiritual gifts with the “Supernatural” series. We serve a God that is bigger and more powerful than anything  in this world – He is super-natural! Paul writes: “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).  More than simply a belief or a concept, Christianity is about taking risks to bring the kingdom of God wherever you go, so that people can encounter and be transformed by the powerful love of Christ. I was particularly impacted by Pastor Kent’s message on how love itself is supernatural – click here to listen

I’m thankful for…you! I am now at 33% of my full support as a missionary! Praise God!

I recently became a home missionary through Elim Fellowship and have started building a team of people who will support me in prayer and finances for my work in the area. I have been so blessed by the number of people who have been willing to partner with me and God’s work throughout Boston. In about a month and a half, I’m already at 33% of my total monthly support – praise God! If you’d like to learn more about this opportunity, please email me – it would truly be an honor to have you on my team!

Prayer Requests:
-Wisdom and strategy for the UniteBoston leadership team in connecting with church and ministry groups throughout the city to build our user base
-For Journey Church, we are praying for laborers to help lay the foundation of our church, including children’s ministry, administrative help, sound and tech, as well as a campus pastor.
