Witnessing to the Lost

Many people don't tell others about God because they are scared or nervous. I know how you feel...witnessing can be scary at times, even for me. Would you feel more confident to witness to your friends who don't know Christ? Would you? This could be your first step to witnessing because you would already be close to him/her. It would be easier than you thought. In the Bible its says, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," Matthew 28:19. God calls us to witness don't you see? We are called to be disciples on the heavens and earth. In the Bible Gods says, "but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8. Everyday God will give you the opportunity to witness. I encourage you to go out to our world and speak the gospel to others. -Caroline

God Provides

Yesterday I made some homemade Bread and Butter pickles. God has truly blessed my family and me. Through this past June and July the weather got extremely hot and our garden needed rain. Our garden finally grew, and we got fresh cucumbers. Another  blessing was my mom's friend gave us fresh apples and we made homemade applesauce, apple pies, and little fried apple pies. God truly blessed us.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
Colossians 3:23,24
