Why the Bible is THE Bible

Hello All,

For several weeks we have been teaching about: Why the Bible is THE Bible, the Holy Word of God, without error and the absolute truth. This week, the journey continues and Ken will be sharing the message. I am actually looking forward to simply “sitting in” myself this week and seeking to be blessed by what Ken shares! How about you?

Below is a couple of passages regarding our need to be “fed” from the Bible and also a wonderful passage from Jesus found in Matthew 5. I especially want to draw your attention to verse 8.

Matt 4:4

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

Matt 5:3-10

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are those who mourn,

for they will be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek,

for they will inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they will be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful,

for they will be shown mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart,

for they will see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they will be called sons of God.

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

A Note about Madrid trip and missionary encounter!

As I wrote last week about this amazing miracle of a contact in Madrid, it did happen (not that I had any doubt) that I was able to be blessed by visiting with missionaries Dana H. and Chuck L. with SEFOVAN and Worldlink Ministries during my stay. In fact, even after having dinner with each of them Tues and Wed, the highlight of the trip was visiting the Seminary today (Friday) before catching my flight home. It was a beautiful thing to encounter – seeing classes and meeting some of the Spanish students at this place. Many were in their 20’s and 30’s and they truly are the future pastors/leaders in many parts of Spain and beyond. God is definitely at work there!

FUTURE EVENT IN ZUG! (First week of JULY)

As you may remember, Dana and Chuck contacted me last week regarding coming to Zug in July with a large mission team from the U.S. We were able to make some tentative plans regarding this wonderful opportunity for LIFT and the Kingdom right here in Zug. Looks like the weekend of the 9th and 10th they will come to the Lake of Zug area near where we meet at Vorstadt and set up an area with several tent like “booths” and an open space. The concept is to use face painting, bracelet making (with colors representing the Gospel) and other like activities to draw people in. They even do a “Texas line dance” deal that gets many involved, even adults and at one point a 15-20 minute Gospel presentation is given and of course the people are already mingling with one on one faith encounters. They do a couple of these “campaigns” each year in Europe and have had great success in drawing crowds and simply being a blessing. By the way, they are self financed and experienced, as to not be a burden to us and LIFT, but simply help us grow the Kingdom around here. We intend to get Stami and the other local Christian churches involved also as many of the contacts will be German speaking too. More to come and your suggestions are appreciated. By the way, they stayed in Germany last year due to cost factors and intend to this year, BUT if you know of any possibilities for accommodations for a group of 60-70 around the Zug, Zurich, Luzern (anywhere centrally located) from July 1st – 10th, please let me know.

Blessings,
Corey and Tanya
