It is our total hope; that you make all, or some of these events listed through the end of the summer. It will be our sincere delight, to see you there. Let’s make it a fabulous; and exciting, last few weeks, of the 2019 summer season. Finally, remember to be safe this summer; and know that The Lord of Host, puts his love in every direction all around us; so, in fact, that which is our own, that The Lord has for us, no one can take it away. Praise The Lord.
Don’t forget to keep us in prayer, at The Shoes Saves Foundation; as prayer does truly change things. Also, don’t forget to send in your much needed donations, as so many depend on them; and our goal is to help as many as we can, while also continuing our building renovation project. Also, if you would like to send in your monthly tithes and offerings, or any donation, you may do so by following the instructions on the donations tab. Our scripture reading for the month of August comes from the book of Psalms, chapter 74, verse 17 which says: " It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter." Remember, to get out and make useful time of the boundaries; that The Lord of Host has made, like summer itself. We are all creatures of his great glory; and great skill, lets make the best of the rest of this summer season, and thank God for it.
Reverend Joi Karla Hubert
With the love of Christ, remember God is Good.
Recite Joi's Prayer below for those who love to pray their own way through any situation:
Lord Elohim, help us through this time and bring us to our correct and rightful place. Remove all demonic forces from around us and those who heed their call. You are righteous and just, and a guiding force through darkness. We also ask you to cleanse and purify all that we eat and drink, on a daily basis. Lord God of all the heavens and earth, I believe in my heart that Jesus is the son of God, and confess with my own mouth: Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. Jehovah God, you answer the prayers of those who ask and call on you in the name of the Messiah. Bless us with right standing Lord, bless us with health and strength Lord, and help us meet all requirements of our own daily existence. Shine us up Lord, and remember us Lord, and take us on wings of glory where we should go, stay and remain; in Jesus name Ben Elohim Al Akbar.
Amen and Amen
