I'll be on vacation for awhile and wanted to send this out ASAP. The dog days of summer are over (I think) and looking forward to a blessed fall season. The Bible says, "don't look to the left or the right; just keep your focus straight ahead." We should always press towards the mark of the high calling of God. What is that calling? Well, first, it's being part of God's big family through salvation. And then, it's how can you serve God. If you're not sure, why not ask Him for help and guidance? If we love the Father we surely must desire to do whatever we can with the gifts He gives. It could be a prayer warrior, a caring shoulder, a neighbor's help, a listening ear, an elder, a teacher or... a minister (you never know).
Brotherhood has been called to minister in song but that's not for everybody. We enjoy sharing God's loving message to whomever regardless of age, culture, etc. We had wonderful, new concert experiences in August that God prepared. Wide spread announcements (incl. TV) fanned the flame as we held concerts at Upsala Presbyterian (Sanford) and the Full Gospel Businessmen's (FGBM) dinner meeting in Titusville. Had a surprise visit by my good friend, Max Pickering from The Pickerings. This family gospel group has been singing for a LONG time. Like Max has said - "longer and older than asphalt!"
There was a great response from people who truly enjoy good gospel music - old and new. They had no problem joining in as they knew many of the songs. God moved in a very special way at FGBM as we had individual prayer at the conclusion. Clyde was a gentleman who had severe shoulder problems with little movement. Phil sensed in his spirit that God was touching Clyde. A few days later, Clyde called to report he was healed as arm movement had returned - praise God!! Being able to reach into new territories always has unknown/ untold rewards and blessings. We look forward to what else God has in store for us - we'll just wait and see!
Be blessed and be a blessing!
