Second Sunday of Advent

Christ is coming! The colour blue on our altar table signals us to “look up” (to the sky) for our redemption draws near. We long to be ready for His appearing and share in the joy He promises His people. We pray that you will sense the peace of Jesus’ presence as we worship today.

Last week we received an update from Missionaries Robin & Yoko White…

Hi Everyone,

It was a great honor to meet a few of you when I visited your church last month. Thank you for making the effort to attend that Wednesday evening missions service, and learning more about our new ministry plans! You may remember that on the day I visited you, my wife had just left on an emergency flight back to Japan, because her father was gravely ill. Two days later, she asked me to join her. Yoko was home with her parents for what became the last three days of her father’s life. She was most grateful for this precious time the Lord provided.

I flew to Japan and we spent a couple of weeks in Nagoya with the family. Last week, we returned to Canada and resumed our deputation work in New Brunswick. Thank you for your prayers and concern through this difficult time. Yoko, her mom and sister are all doing well, considering. But there will be some adjustment and processing in the days ahead. Please continue to pray for our family – and for others who may come to meet Jesus as they consider the nature and frailty of this life.

God bless you all.

– Robin & Yoko
