Transform – Women’s Conference 2019

Women’s Spring Conference

“She is clothed in strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.”  Proverbs 31:25

As children of God, we are not to conform to the ways of this world, but to rise above, and to be transformed through spiritual growth, accountability, and discipleship.  As we become transformed into godly women, our lives emit Christ to those around us.

 Please join us for an exciting day of transformation. Our prayer is that strong relationships will be sparked and those in attendance will be uplifted, encouraged, and find healing.

Pastor Rammon

Dear Church Family:

It was might great honor and privilege to visit pastor Rammon (pronounced like Ramen Noodles) while visiting India recently.  Pastor Rammon and his family are wonderful Christians who are serving the Lord on top of Yercaud Mountain.  Yercaud Mountain is a land mark for people who travel in India.  The Mountain is beautiful and the climate is always temperate.  There are many hotels and spas on top of the mountain, and people come from miles around to drive the 17 hairpin turns to the top of the mountain.  Along the route, monkeys greet you and will steal you camera if you stop and take a picture.  The mountain is filled with coffee farms, and many villages are tucked into the mountains, centered around the coffee business.  It is an idyllic scene.

 

However, Christianity is not very popular on Yercaud Mountain.  Pastor Rammon believes that God has given him a vision to reach 66 villages with the gospel.  These villages have a total population of 1.5 million people.  And the “wee little man” rides his motorcycle to these villages with the hopes of planting churches all over the mountain.  In one village, a family has been reached for Jesus.  Pastor Rammon holds weekly services in the man’s home.  The village leaders told the whole village not to speak this man’s family.  The man told me, “Jesus is enough for me” , (and then he laughed)

 

Please pray for Pastor Rammon and his family.  We will be getting emails from pastor Rammon and these will be published here.

 

Blessings,

Dr. j
