Twenty Years of the Lord's Faithfulness in Germany
In 1997, Tim and Linda Kelly were sent out from Grace Church of DuPage to plant a church in Germany. Twenty years later, we rejoice with them in the clear and evident spiritual fruit the Lord has brought through their ministry. Pastor Daryle and Jean Worley along with Pastor Ray and Bobbi Glinski will be traveling to Germany this Thursday, September 14th. They look forward to joining with our brothers and sisters in Meine, celebrating the Lord's faithfulness to the Free Evangelical Church.
Please be in prayer for the Worleys and Glinskis as they travel. We would ask that you also lift up the Kellys' church, praising the Lord for the great work He has done. Let us seek the Lord to bless this church with many more years of fruitful ministry.
3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, 5 because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, 6 which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth, 7 just as you learned it from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf 8 and has made known to us your love in the Spirit.
9 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
