Pastor Letter for February 2018
Dear Members and Friends in the family of the Lord Jesus,
We thank God for February because we can celebrate more of His love and care and blessings as we celebrate our church 26th Birthday on 25th February, as we all look back we can see God’s purpose for our church to celebrate His presence all along in our journey. As we look around we can see the goodness of God in our fellowship among our children, our youth, our elderlies, married and singles, reflecting God’s words become alive in us all, as we look ahead we know He will continue preparing us to become more mature, to become like Christ and enjoy the living hope and as we look up we can see God’s glory in all His creation and handy works to praise and pray with great expectation of the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is near.
We thank you for all your prayers and support to our church SYNA mission/Vision out reach team reaching out to Putao, Daung Mee Kwet, Sittway and yangon. Life is a mission to connect people to Christ and we are to be connected to His at all times as the bible said in John 15 saying “I am the vine, and you are the branches. If you stay joined to me, and I stay joined to you, then you will produce lots of fruit. But you cannot do anything without me. 6 If you don’t stay joined to me, you will be thrown away. You will be like dry branches that are gathered up and burned in a fire. 7 Stay joined to me and let my teachings become part of you. Then you can pray for whatever you want, and your prayer will be answered. 8 When you become fruitful disciples of mine, my Father will be honored. 9 I have loved you, just as my Father has loved me. So remain faithful to my love for you. 10 If you obey me, I will keep loving you, just as my Father keeps loving me, because I have obeyed him. 11 I have told you this to make you as completely happy as I am. 12 Now I tell you to love each other, as I have loved you.
Connect to Jesus so that we can make other people to contact Christ in a personal way. As we are connected with Him then we can be fruitful with Love, Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Let us not loose sight of our mission purpose as we celebrate our church 26th anniversary, “Be connected to Jesus and Be the connector of people to Christ” to god be the Glory in his church and in our families and in us all. Halelujah, “Blessed 26th Anniversary, BCC Sydney” love you all. Jesus love us all.
