Dear Live Connection Partners,
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22 -23
At the beginning of this New Year we reaffirm this to be true – His love never ceases to each and every one of us – both Partners and Pastors – wherever we may be and we could also add: every morning, every day, every month and every year!
Live Connection started the year with a trip to the Philippines, here is a report from Glenyce:
“Thank you for your prayer support during the recent Training Trip to the Philippines
for Paul, Mal and me. I always come back from the trips re-energised and more passionate than ever about the work of Live Connection. To see the sacrifice and passion of our pastors causes me to reflect and drives me on to do what I can to assist in the extension of the Kingdom.
How encouraging it was to welcome some new pastors into the Live Connection fold and to
hear their stories of working in their communities. One young pastor sleeps in the church as
there is nowhere else for him to go – but he is passionate! Another young man travels long
distances to share the gospel with his extended family in an area that is not really open to the
gospel. Two pastors are planning an outreach to Mindanao – a very dangerous and troubled
area of the Philippines – Pray for them!
Unlike Mission Trips to Africa, this was a Training Trip with the Pastors in the Philippines. Many of these men have given up paid employment to further the work of the gospel.
Once again we saw in action the result of your giving to partner with these pastors. You can be assured that the vision of Live Connection is alive and flourishing; your support definitely makes a difference!”
Thank you again for your support for this great vision – it is great to see whole communities transformed through empowered Christian leaders.
The pastors were all given Live Connection Tshirts and soccer gear. Here is Leonil preparing to ride home!
