January 2013 Update
Craig & Elaine Kennedy (1971)
Happy New Year!
Where has 2012 gone? "Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right and forget the ones that don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. NOBODY SAID THAT IT'D BE EASY, THEY JUST PROMISED IT WOULD BE WORTH IT." Anonymous [Thanks to a Filipina friend for this quote.]
Happy New Year! Myra Cruz Alibrando shared, "November 17, 2000 is the date when I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I am celebrating my spiritual birthday today and I thank the Lord for using Pastor Craig Kennedy and Mom Elaine for me to know Christ. I also thank Ate Christine Santos during that time when we sat and studied the Bible. I thank my dorm ladies for being a part of my Christian life." We praise God for Myra's new life in Christ!
Furlough Project & Ministry – Noticing that all major appliances at 'this old house' are 15+ years old (and the refrigerator door does not stay closed tight), we are planning an upgrade before April 30, 2013. PRAY: Project 'O&P Appliances for Kennedy' will be much appreciated.
It was a privilege to share on the theme of 'Joy' to ladies in a neighboring church. According to 1 Thessalonians 2:19, 20--(the people to whom we minister) are our hope and joy or crown of rejoicing (because they will be present with the Lord Jesus Christ at his coming)... "For YOU are our GLORY AND JOY" [Note: Joy is not found in ourselves; it is found in ministering to others, hence our source of joy is from God through Jesus and comes expressed to us through others.]
