Psalm 24 A Psalm of David. The Glorious King (TPT)

God claims the world as his. Everything and everyone belongs to him!
He’s the one who pushed back oceans to let the dry ground appear, planting firm foundations for the earth.
Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord?[b]And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place?
Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure.
They will receive the Lord’s blessing and righteousness given by the Savior-God.
They will stand before God, for they seek the pleasure of God’s face,[c] the God of Jacob.
Pause in his presence
So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny!
Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you.
You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way!

So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in.
 You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts!
 Yes, he is the King of Glory!
Pause in his presence

We have witnessed a powerful work amongst us, laying foundations, preparing the ground and establishing righteousness amongst the people.

Over the past eight years, we have been truly amazed! 2018 has been another year where we have seen God’s hand of mercy and protection, where we have witnessed his love poured out for the orphan, the widow, the broken and the weary. He has broken our hearts again and again for the things that break his.

“As we move into a new year we sit with you and listen to your heart. We reflect on all you have brought us through, the many fragile lives we have helped to restore by your grace flowing through us. We have had times of frustration and we have even felt like giving up, but you have sustained us in your presence and your word has encouraged us greatly. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus who gives us strength. ” Deborah Irvin

Details on outreach to the Yao People 

Pray for the church as it serves the Lord, sharing the good news, leading the way in the service of orphans and the widows. 50 members continue to meet with a vision to reach out with God’s love and be the hands and feet of Jesus.  Please pray especially for the children as they learn about Jesus and seek to follow him. We want to see those who wish to follow Christ receive the support they need to grow in their faith and realise their God-given potential. Give us your heart we pray, keep us humble and willing to do what is needed for the glory of your name, Amen.

Generating income in Malawi 
Malawi has dropped again three steps down from position 6 last year in 2017 to position 3 this year 2018 as the world most poorest country.*

Please pray for our Moringa crop in the early stages of growth – without the Lord’s protection it will fail. We want to do what the Father is doing – in everything we do – in our efforts to raise income and in being Jesus hands and feet on the ground.
