Pastoral Epistle – April, 12, 2023
Greetings in Jesus!
Jesus came and spoke to His disciples saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Matthew 28:18
During His earthly ministry, Jesus walked every day teaching people and healing their diseases. After His resurrection Jesus met only with His chosen followers. He gave them confidence to trust in Him. He made them realize that He had all authority in heaven and on earth.
Praise the Lord for our Easter Service: By God’s grace we had a blessed Easter Service. We are thankful for our leaders who trained our Sunday School children. They did an amazing job. We are thankful to our worship team for their music and special songs.
