From the Desk of Bro. Billy
 
   
          We are living in a strange and contentious time.  There is strife on every hand and we are being bombarded from every side!
         In the political realm you don’t know who to trust or who to believe.  The news media has published so many untruths that it’s hard to decide what is truth and what is not.  Social media is filled with everyone’s opinion and you’re supposed to believe it all.  Social unrest has reached the breaking point, to the degree that no one trusts no one anymore.  
Then we are faced with the Covid-19 pandemic.  Again there are so many conflicting reports that it is hard to know what to believe.
In the midst of all this, what is a person to do?  There is one place we can go to find the answers to all we’re faced with:
Matthew 11:28 - “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
If man will turn to God and seek Him through His Son Jesus Christ they will find?
Philippians 4:7 - “...the peace of God, which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ.”
The answer is found in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His work is true and we can depend on every Word of it.  His Word tells us that change has to begin with me and you:
II Chronicles 7:14 - If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
And He tells us we shall find Him when:
Jeremiah 29:13 - “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
May the Church turn back to Christ and may He heal our land as we humble ourselves before Him.

We all make plans.  We try to plan our life, sometimes our plans have to change, sometimes they don’t work out.  But it’s also wise to talk to God about our plan.  If He is guiding, it will work.  God also has plans, sometimes we can’t understand, but His plan always works, even in all of this trouble.  God has a plan for all of this, even though it looks hopeless to us.  God’s plans will work!  God has it, and He had a plan for all of it.  It will be for our good.  Just tell everyone, God has this, it will work.  God bless us all.

YOUTH MINISTRY   

Cannot believe it's already August!  Well, every student knows that the month of August means going back to school is upon them.  This semester will be different.  Some are going back to the classroom, others are going virtual.  These are unprecedented times.  One thing is constant,   God is sovereign and in charge!  Toni and I are praying for our students and teachers of Central Baptist church.  

Students be on the lookout about a study happening on Wednesday nights.

YOUNG AT HEART   

As the pandemic continues and we are not able to be together, I encourage you to pray for each other, our community, and our nation. Prayer is the most powerful tool one can use! I also encourage you to check on your friends and church family via phone call, card, or social media. It is difficult for many, especially for our older members, to be alone day in and day out. Reaching out is a great blessing!

Since we have not met for awhile and will not until the pandemics settles down, we are not able to work on our yearly school projects. Instead, I encourage you to support our Shoe Box Ministry. You can purchase small items for these boxes or donate money to the fund. Our goal this year is 300 boxes - we now have 100 completed! It's such a worthy project for children all over the world.

   Love you!   Reva
