Today we bring our offerings for the North America Indigenous Ministries – serving with First Nations to reach all Nations. Sean and Becky Folkerts and their multicultural family of 7 children that God has beautifully put together, minister to the Louis Bull Cree Nation near Maskwacis. Through His amazing grace, God has put in Sean & Becky’s hearts the burning desire to share their lives and more importantly, His love with these amazing people! Sean & Becky are involved in the community, and have plans on extending their ministry. Currently they work with youth, high risk youth, families and some work with men. Lord willing, in time, there will be involvement with women’s ministry, work with young teenage ladies, and more involvement with men. They feel they are merely a tool used for His Kingdom work!

Next Sunday, March 25th we will take an offering for Rehoboth Christian Ministries. Rehoboth conveys God’s love to persons with disabilities and their families by making room for them and enabling them to flourish. Rehoboth Christian Ministries’ mandate is to serve people with disabilities so they can flourish in life. This mandate and their very name – Rehoboth – are inspired by a verse in God’s word where Isaac names a watering well: Rehoboth. Genesis 26:22b. He named it Rehoboth, saying “Now the LORD has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”

Food for Thought: 

"Praise awaits you, O God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled. O, you who hear prayer, to you will all men come..." Psalm 65:1-2
