From The Bishop’s Heart

Hello, Faith Evangelistic Center,

     March has arrived and with it, the greater hope of spring. Soon more will be sitting on their decks and listening to the sound of lawn mowers and weed eaters, it’s a beautiful sound, lol. Things have already begun to heat up here at Faith Evangelistic Center. Ministries are busy and many plans are being made for inside and outside events.

     February brought with it lots of good things and God’s powerful presence, but one thing stood out among it all. God chose to take Eric Miller home much sooner than anyone expected. He was only 18 years old, but he was a great young man! He will be remembered for many things, but his smile, his character and his attitude were that of a mighty man of God. Hearts will heal and adjustments made, and life will go on, but we will never forget Eric, never. Rose Marie Holmes also went to be with the Lord. She was a member of F.E.C. until she moved for health reasons. She always stayed in touch and she too will be missed by those who kept in touch with her and her family. We are rejoicing because their battles are over and they talk to God now, face to face.

     Thank you Flag Team, for the raffle and all the amazing prizes. Valentine’s day saw lots of flowers, cards and candy. Our worship services, I believe, have begun a healing and a cleansing within this body of believers. We will now begin fasting on Wednesdays and have intercessory prayer on Wednesday nights. How long this will go on, I do not know, but I do believe a self-examination is needed for us all. Questions like, am I in God’s will? Am I in the right position? Do I walk and talk like Jesus? Honesty and truth are a must for God’s children. Without it the whole body suffers, but with it, no devil in hell can stand against it.

     Our annual change war begins today, March 5th. I’m going to take a hard stand and pray the men will prevail over the women, lol. It’s always for a good cause and in the end, we all win. Allow me to close by saying how proud I am of many of the folks here at F.E.C. The way they endure and continue to move forward, through pain and hardship, and they keep stepping up. When people like that stand together, you can boldly say this city belongs to God. I am excited about our new Life Church Team. I’ve waited a long time, but it’s now been set in motion and I believe it will bring healing to many.
