Last Sunday evening, I was blessed with the opportunity to worship with Fellowship International at our new location. From the first look at our new building, I immediately felt invited. God’s presence has such a unique way of pulling people in. The music was so powerful. Being able to worship our Creator in different languages is impacting in ways that words cannot describe. Being surrounded by fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and we are all from different parts of the world is mind blowing. It felt like how God intended us to worship. Bringing dis-unified people together for the main purpose of worshiping the same God in unity is exactly what I believe Jesus and the apostles wanted for us. The experience of hearing Pastor Larry preach with interpretations reminds me of Acts 2 when the Holy Spirit used them to speak to everyone around them. It is an experience that all of us have available to us now through Fellowship International. After worship, we got to fellowship with brothers and sisters through dinner. Just hearing the different languages, seeing the different attires, and feeling the presence of God showed me how crucial it is to be involved with outreach. The world is coming to us. We just have to be ready and willing when God tells us to do something. If you have not had the opportunity to worship at Fellowship International, I pray that you will take time to come and experience worship like you have never experienced before.

In Christ,

Community Impact was a great success all over our city.  We had approximately 100 people reaching our community by doing various projects.  Some participated in building a room for a local apartment complex in Olathe where we do Bible study, tutoring and ESL.  This past winter was harsh and we needed a warm environment to reach these people for Christ through the above classes.  Here is a video to show you what work was done.  Steven Cortez did a great job putting it together!  http://youtu.be/u4PBik8sfKk

We also held a soccer camp at our North campus Fellowship KC.  Many children arrived and had a great day learning soccer and hearing the gospel on how they can be a champion in Christ!

The Fellowship Shawnee went to Lake Lenexa to beautify the community by spreading mulch and spending time in fellowship with one another.  We were able to visit with the City of Lenexa crew and share the love of Christ with them.  If you get a chance, go to Lake Lenexa and see what we did!

Some members went to support our inner city campus River’s Edge Fellowship with Pastor Travis Yeargans.  They passed out information and invited people to his church.

It was a great day and we look forward to doing this again in the fall!

Our Mexico team has arrived in Empalme and have spent the last 3 days doing construction work at Iglesia Bautista de Empalme with Pastor Alfredo Marin and his wife Nydia. They have gone into neighborhoods to do evens with children and adults and share the gospel each night. Below are some pictures to enjoy and please keep them in your prayers this week as they work and bring the lost to Christ.

The Dominican Republic team left a climate of 90 degrees to a snow storm in Kansas City with a temperature of 10 degrees on March 1st! What a change in just a matter of hours! That is nothing compared to what they saw in the Dominican Republic! The crew was able to build a chapel, go into public schools and share the gospel through puppets, skits and just sharing the Word! Not only did the gospel change the children’s and adult’s lives, but God also did amazing things with our missionaries. Click on the link to read their testimonies:

Sharing the Gospel

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes… ~Romans 116

Preaching

15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. 16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. ~2 Thessalonians 2:15-17

Please keep the Dominican Republic team in your prayers as Pastor Kelly leads this wonderful group in building a chapel and sharing the gospel through doing events in the community. Pray they will be an encouragement to the missionaries there. Attached are a few pictures we have received so far!

Each year LBC kids raise money at the summer VBS for some project. Last year they raised $7,000 to purchase beds for the kids of an orphanage opened by the Truthful Gospel Ministries in Kallur, India. The kids in the orphanage are extremely happy for the beds. See pictures below.
