Seize the Light
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
Dear Praying Friends,
We all know the saying “Seize the Day!” In these days where there’s so much darkness, let’s seize the light of Jesus which has victory over all darkness, despair and death. How? Through proclaiming the gospel, and IN PRAYER! Many of us are numb from all the recent violence in our nation (as well as darkness globally). The answer in how we think and feel is through the mind of Christ and in the miracle of the opening of the human heart to the truth of the Gospel. That’s what the Palau team does so well (and with the Holy Spirit, we can too) as we let our light for Jesus shine!
Idaho! Andrew, Palau team and the Lord have been sharing the light of Jesus and knocking on the hearts of Idaho this last month (June) speaking with community leaders there, going into the prison, making radio broadcasts and a Festival with hundreds making decisions to step into the light of faith in Jesus.
Jamaica! Festival week is now… July 10-16! This is the 14th consecutive year that Andrew has joined with believers in the region to hold a city-wide evangelistic festival including Cityserve efforts, discipleship training for believers, the first women’s tea for the Fun in the Son Festival on July 13, and more! And of course, the festival on July 16th reaching tens of thousands with the light of the Gospel and “Fun in the Son!" Open the Jamaica Report below for more details.
Washington, DC! “Together 2016” is this Saturday, July 16th! Pray that hundreds of thousands of people come to the National Mall to hear NGA Evangelist Nick Hall, along with many other speakers and musicians, proclaim the Gospel! Learn more at www.reset2016.com.

Shining for Jesus with You,
For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light. Ephesians 5:8
