Summer 2013

Directors Note

It has been quite a ride with all of you dear people this summer! Rich Malone, Executive Director

I love the way that God has brought together this group of almost strangers and has melted our hearts into one in Him. We have been able to experience the truth of what was there even before we met – we are ONE in Him. I couldn’t be more thankful for each of you for the beautiful ways that you have walked in His Spirit during these three months and have served and loved so well in Jesus’ name. So what happens next? Jesus wants us to experience the Power of ONE every day! Abba Father invites us into intimacy with Him; no more independence from Him; no more trying to find life outside of Him; no more self-righteousness and, likewise, no more self-hatred;

He invites us to live in His love and in perfect union with Him. That is Jesus’ wonderful desire for us as His Body and His Bride – and in that perfect union with him we can forever experience and reflect His glory. Thank you for following Him to LFR this summer. Our lives are all richer and fuller because of the expression of His glory through each of you. You are all forever family to us!

With love to each of you, Papa Rich

Joe Cain Videographer Who is God that establishes dominion over minions and is moved with creativity and decides to makes men in the image of Him. With His words we were created and rather than having an understanding of gratitude we became envious and we hated Him. And since God is compassionate He condescended and became like us as a representative. Sent for the purpose to make atonement for His own elect and connect the most wrecked of men to the throne room of the divine architect. And so the ineffable unapproachable God who invented space and the human heart invaded space to reach the depths of human hearts. Its all a part of His perfect plan sinners in the hands of God holding on a kite string. Connecting a redeemed humanity by the finished work the King of Kings. - Beautiful Eulogy
