"Get All Excited, Go Tell Everybody"

I don't know if you know it or not, but that is the title of great song that is sung in churches all around the country. It is a great description of my feelings about HGBC and what God is doing. It is an awesome privilege and responsibility God has placed before us. God is slowly manifesting His presence in our services as He works in the hearts and lives of people.

"How do I know He is working?" you might ask. Well, it is obvious to me. Last Sunday we had the opportunity to go to the "birthing room" when Nikki was gloriously saved and became our sister in Christ. We also had a wonderful couple join our church. May God help us to faithfully lead them in serving the Lord Jesus Christ. "If that don't light your fire, your wood's wet!"

I am also very excited about our upcoming mission adventure to Honduras. There are 13 people from HGBC who stepped out of their comfort zones, in faith, and watched as God "provided their needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." I am waiting with great anticipation to see how God will change HGBC for His honor and glory. We covet your prayers as June 1st approaches, and we ask that you continue to pray for us as we go "on Mission" for Christ. Pray that God will reach out through us to demonstrate His love to people who desperately need Him. And pray that as we are there, that He would give you the opportunity to minister to someone here at home. There are needs everywhere you look, and God wants you to allow Him to interject Himself into those situations. Blessing upon you as you serve Him.

Serving Him,
Pastor Mike
