Shepherd’s Corner – January 20, 2019

Thank you for your prayers during our Thailand trip! By God’s grace we returned safely and were very blessed during our time there. It was great to see how God is using His people to share the love of Christ in Phetchabun and Bangkok! We were able to visit with Todd and Karen Indehar in Bangkok and listen to their story of…

Thank you for your prayers for our Y1 retreat. It was a blessing! With that being fresh in my mind, I want to remind who might have already forgotten the necessity of fixing our eyes on Christ and would also like to encourage those who weren’t at retreat because we need to hear this again and again. We have a tendency to…

It seems just like yesterday a team went to Thailand. But here we are going again! This was an intentional scheduling to keep our minds on global missions all throughout the year instead of just once in the summer. Please pray for our team. I’m worried that after having come out of the holiday season so recently that we may not be…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 30, 2018

I think you will all agree with me that 2018 was a full and busy year. With the development of our fellowship hall after the wall was removed, the joining of the Indonesian Church in using our chapel, the acquisition of a used minivan, and the addition of more pastoral staff there is no doubt that God is living and active and…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 23, 2018

God is a promise keeper. God had promised a savior, the Messiah, and in His time, Jesus was born. The long awaited savior was born in Bethlehem just as it was prophesied. However, it wasn’t when, what, or how the people had expected. Israelites expected a political savior; and they probably expected it during their exile or even much earlier; and of…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 16, 2018

By God’s grace we have been growing. I’ve explained that the growth that is most important is spiritual maturity, but we’ve also been growing in numbers. Most of our numerical growth has been (but not limited to) our Y1. And I am thankful for our pastoral intern, Andrew Chang’s faithful service! But this also means that we need more man power to…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 9, 2018

As we have KM’s senior pastor candidate and our Y2 pastor candidate come and share God’s word today, I am thankful that we have men who have faithfully committed themselves to the work of God’s kingdom and church.  The call to the pastorate is not an easy one and definitely not a glamorous one (actually if you ever see a pastorate that’s…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 2, 2018

December is already upon us, which means Christmas is near and the year is almost over.  As we start this final month of the year, start the process of reflecting back on 2018.  They say that hindsight is 20/20, so you should be able to look back and see clearer why certain things happened or how you were led to where you…

Shepherd’s Corner – November 25, 2018

I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving.  I want to encourage everyone to remember that God’s blessings exists throughout the calendar year.  We are such forgetful beings that we need a holiday on the calendar to remind us to give thanks.  But may we not be such Christians.  May the faithfulness of God never bore us but instead be the firm foundation…

Shepherd’s Corner – November 18, 2018

On this Thanksgiving Sunday, let us celebrate as we witness baptism and infant baptism today!  It is always a great joy to see that God is active within our congregation. Let us surround these baptizees with our welcome and love and rejoice that our God is mighty to save.  And just as weddings are often a time for married couples to revisit…
