Ever watched Facing The Giants by the Kendrick Brothers? (If you haven't, click on this or search on Youtube - Facing The Giants The Parable) Remember the scene where the Coach is speaking to the older man Mr. Bridges that prays over the students’ lockers every day. Mr. Bridges feels led to come into Coach Taylor's office and tell him that he needs to bloom where the Lord plants him and he also tells him a parable about two farmers who desperately needed rain for their crops to grow. Although both farmers prayed for rain, only one of them went out and prepared his fields to receive it. Mr. Bridges asks, "Which one trusted God to send the rain?" The Coach responds, "The one who prepared," "God will send the rain when He's ready. You need to prepare your fields to receive it," says Mr. Bridges.

We believe God can! Are we preparing to receive? Thank you for being an amazing church! Last year, you were faithfully consistent with your praying, giving and participation! We were outside of these walls and we took with us our faith, hope and love! We brought joy to hundreds of people through community initiatives, filling PPE shortage, outreaches, online services and so many more! That is just a glimpse of what God has for Abundant Life Community Church! It’s time to build on that. It’s time for us to start BUILDING FOR MORE with our prayers, giving and participation! Where we are praying big prayers. Where we are giving to God - giving towards His work in London and where He leads. Where we participate in God’s will! Join us as we build by praying, “God, Your Kingdom come. Your will done on

Earth [in London] as it is in Heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) Join us as we build by giving, “God, may we not sow sparingly but may we sow generously to reap the abundance of Your work in our city.” (2 Corinthians 9:1-15) Join us as we build by participating, “God, may we hear and do Your Word through the Holy Spirit leading.” (James 1:22-25) We are building to receive. God will move us to pray, give and participate in building more. It’s time to take our steps of faith towards BUILDING FOR MORE. Building together, Tony Mejia Joy in our lives and joy in our city.

AGM (All General Meeting) 2021 We “zoomed” our way through our fun AGM. God is faithful, you are faithful and we have been able to serve our community faithfully. So good to see you when you picked up/dropped off your AGM Snack Pack! What’s next: Preparing for Rain

Thank you Nancy for creating this awesome pic collage.

AGM (All General Meetings) can get boring...but not with this group! Reports, balance sheets, video and screen sharing (oops!) makes it a fun time. What an amazing year learning how to live in a pandemic, do church online and keep connected and encouraged. Thank you ALCC Leadership Team Lead Pastor Tony & Bethany Associate Pastor Bill & Kathy Youth & Creative Pastor Mike & Alicia Pastor’s Council: Kathleen, Roy, Rick, Paul B Servant Council: Mike F, Kenn, Rachel, Cathy, Bessie



Currently we are running a cooking program for families with youth in the home, once a week they pick up their ingredients from the youth center and we provide them recipes and video tutorials to help with being able to understand how to cook their meals. Once a week myself and one of my co-workers connects with the families we’ve been assigned to ensure that they are doing ok and keeping up and also to see how we can best help and support them in or out of the cooking program. So far we’ve had very positive feedback and all our families have bene enjoying it and its been great to be able connect with parents and youth through this, also being able to continue to serve even in lockdown has been amazing. Please pray for us as London moves into lesser restrictions and we begin to re-open the youth center and try to navigate the best use of our time and resources and how to best serve our community. I am also still a long way off from my financial goals at YFC. I would appreciate your prayer as I continue to work towards raising funds to continue my ministry at YFC. If you’re interested in partnering it can be done online at yfclondon.com/donate. If you have questions about what I am doing I would love to chat feel free to text or call me at 519-280-7606 or email me: Kathryn.jones@yfclondon.com

Our dear sister Wendy Oster left this world with her family around her and her Saviour beside her. Wendy fought her battle with cancer bravely and in God’s strength. In the many years she has been part of our Abundant Life family, Wendy participated and lovingly served as our Kids Church Leader and in many areas of Celebrate Recovery with her final role as Ministry Leader. Wendy’s laugh, her heart for worship and her love of God’s Word will be missed. Her life was a beautiful example of a God-filled life to all of us

Loved by your Abundant Life Family
