Jordan Cafe: Wow what a first half-of-the-year! It has gone by very quickly, it has been very busy, fun, sometimes-frustrating, exhausting but a huge blessing. Today is the Jordan Cafe’s last day (Friday, 24th July) for two weeks and we reopen Wednesday, 24th July. Last night at Chapel was an incredible night! It was beautiful and powerful to see everything come together to give God all the Glory! To raise the name of Jesus higher than any other name! And for the Holy Spirit to move mightily among us. Keira shared beautifully from 1 Corinthians 13 and what it means to her to know God and to love God more-and-more. Then … We had three Baptisms! Three fellas (Bradley, Brian and Jim) from the community were Baptised! Praise God! They all shared about the journey God has taken them on and their faith in Jesus. We then celebrated as they were Baptised! Thank you for these three fellas, their testimonies and for their Baptisms. It is a privilege and joy for us to walk with these guys and to see how God is transforming them just we saw the water wash over them last night.
We then joined together for a wonderful dinner! A great meal, superb coffee and lovely conversations.
We thank the Jordan Café Team for all their hard work and for the love they have for the community. We pray that they have a restful, restoring and relaxing two-weeks.
