Prayers and Announcements:

Continued prayers for Bourne’s mom and the whole family.  Hammerhead brought a few children up that are fighting off something.  

With heavy arms, or weak shoulders the BOM gathered at a 6 foot separation and Flying Tomato prayed us out.


He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.—Revelation 21:4

In this life, Jesus promises suffering (John 16:33). In fact, we’re almost guaranteed persecution (2 Timothy 3:12). Our hope and promise is one of deliverance (Psalm 34:19).  We live with tears, death, mourning, crying, and pain but one day our Father will kneel down and take his thumb to wipe away the tears that fall from our eyes.  

For those of who listen into or take an active role in MOD you should recognize this. “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.—Romans 8:18

While we cannot take away the pains like God will I do believe we help one another through the pain, the suffering, mourning.  We are there for each other to lean on, to listen to the one suffering, to throw a rope down to help the other out of that pit of despair.  

We build better men by doing hard things together.
