A Place Called Heaven

A Place Called Heaven

 

Kurt and Tina Goebel started a new study on Sunday, June 2.  All are invited to join the class for this 6 week study: A Place Called Heaven by Robert Jeffers.  Books are $6.50.

 

If any of us learned we were going to move to a foreign country, we’d do everything we could to learn about that place so that we’d be prepared when moving day arrived.  As Christians, we know someday we will leave our familiar country and be united with God in heaven.  And yet many of us know very little about this place called heaven.  In this Bible study, explore several surprising truths about heaven and reveal whom we see there and what we will do.  This study will give believers a clearer picture of the divine place Jesus has prepared for us.  And it will encourage us to make heaven a greater priority in our hearts and minds so that we are better prepared for it.

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
