Dear Partner and Friend:

We are in need of your prayers for the church
in Trinidad and Tobago.  This year we have tried
to plan our annual crusade and have faced many
obstacles.  Finally we secured a place that is in
a good location.  Now the government has placed
a mandatory curfew from 9 p.m. to citizens and
public transportation shuts off before that time.  
Most of the people attending depend on public
transportation. We need a miracle so that this
event can take place
. The crusade is to take
 on September 23-25.  We are asking that
you pray with us that God gives us wisdom
and favor so that the Crusade can be held.

~Things About God That Thrill Me! - Martyn Ballestero

Things About God That Thrill Me!
Psa. 145:5   "I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works."
Psa. 145:21  "My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever."
1. It Thrills Me To Know God Is Still On The Throne!
  •      When dictators are dead and forgotten, God will still be God.
  •      He is eternal.
When stars fall from heaven and the sun grows cold and mountains crumble into dust, His Throne still rules.
2. His Blood Has Never Lost Its Power!
The blood of bulls and goats has dried up long ago, but Christ’s Blood is more powerful than sacrificed animals.
  •      Picture the ancient priests and the sacrifices.
  •      But, now we are blood washed.
  •      He has given us a clear record.
  •      We are Saved, Washed and Protected by the Blood.
