Phillipians 4 v 19″ The Lord said I will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are grateful to the Lord once again for His kindness to us. We are glad now that the bus repairs have been completed to be back on the streets once again serving the Lord. We have been amazed at the Lord’s provision in His undertaking through those who carried out the work so professionally. Those seemingly “Non Christians” who carried out the work were most generous in reducing their labour costs and hours charged in welding and painting the vehicle to a high standard.
God the Father has given us the best in our blessed redeemer, so it’s only right that we present that same image to the world. We are looking forward to meeting those who the dear Lord might draw by His Spirit to our beloved Saviour and friend The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth through the bus witness.
If anyone should have any prayer requests please contact Dave and Lin.

What I have done is worthy of nothing but silence and forgetfulness, but what God has done for me is worthy of everlasting and thankful memory.
Joseph Hall (1574-1656).
In Luke 17:11-19, we read an account of Jesus healing ten lepers. When the lepers saw Jesus they called out, “Jesus, master, have pity on us, ”Jesus replied, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” The priests would have examined them to see if they were cured and allowed back into the community. At the moment of Jesus’ instruction, the men were still lepers. No physical change had yet taken place, but, in faith, the men obeyed. As they began to walk to the priest, they were healed.
Jesus has always required faith on the part of the person who asked for healing. Only one returned to thank Jesus for the healing received, and that was a Samaritan despised by the Jews. Jesus expressed disappointment that the other nine had not thought to give praise to God for their healing. From this we learn that God desires for us to express our thankfulness to Him for all He does in our lives. We should always give thanks to the giver and not just the gifts.
The greatest gift is Jesus. – Our “Satnav” through life and our God and Saviour.

It is good always to give thanks!
We have so much to be thankful for. Daily we receive gracious blessings from the Lord especially sins forgiven and new life in Jesus. It is good to give thanks not because we must, but because we delight to do so.
There is much to make us despair, but the Lord has promised “Never to leave us or forsake us.” What a solid promise that truly is and we can fully rely on Him to keep His word as we live in this troubled and desperate world, where so many experience sorrow, pain, and doubt. Thank you Lord, for we can trust you all our days.
Every blessing, Roy.
Thou hast given so much to me; Give one thing more, – a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me; As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
George Herbert (1593-1633)
1 Thessalonians 5: 16, 17. “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.
May the Lord’s grace be with you and your loved ones.
