Pastor Letter for July 2016
Dear Members and Friends
Half year of 2016 has gone by with lots of God’s love, peace and joy. The passing of our beloved Big Brother U Khin Maung Tun on June 23rd was very mixed emotionally , we were sad because death visited the Tun’s family, we rejoice because we knew where he will be with God, may peace be upon Aunty Jean, Ko Tharr Cho’s family and Ko Ronald’s family. This month July is the most busy month in our church calendar and yet to know more of God and to make Him known. Celebrate Jesus on the first Saturday will bring lots of excitement to worship in spirit and in truth with friends and members, on the second week the Hill Song conference will inspire many including BCC church family and to all coming from different parts of Australia. On the second and third week we will have Discipleship school with Saya Noah Ohn Myint and Saya Samuel Thein July 11-23 will be a new chapter opening for our church ministry. Let’s keep on praying and serving the Lord with unity and love for God and one another as Jesus said in Matthew 22:37-40International Children’s Bible (ICB) 37 Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and most important command. 39 And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’[b] 40 All the law and the writings of the prophets depend on these two commands.”
Our church focus on the great commandment and the great commission which is vital important to all believers in Christ for both individual and as a whole community of faith. Keep on loving, serving, the Lord and keeping all His blessings with His unfailing grace and strength.
