A Special, Life-Encouraging Journey to the Holy Land

Change is inevitable; change isn’t always easy. Thank goodness, God never changes. God is faithful and continues to provide in changing times. Pastor Joe and Gwynn are so grateful for the opportunity to have visited the land May 2019 where Jesus walked and ministered.

Pastor Joe and Gwynn were photographed in front of the massive lion. Looking and it confirms my inner sense of our Lord saying I AM with you. The blue butterfly is a reminder that His mercies are new every morning. “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”.


Our main prayer in 2019 was to have a youth leader for the youth in our community. This September 2020, God has given an intern for 1 day a week for our youth.

So with great anticipation for the coming year of 2020, we will walk with the Lord in determining His will.

However, COVID-19 hit.

And in response, we said “So What!”

People will still be hungry. FICM never stopped serving. Our main food team was comprised of adults with underlying health conditions of over 50 years of age. Fear raised its head for just a moment, but God already had a brand new team of volunteers ready to step in to carry on, to ensure Pastor Joe’s vision never dims.

God protects as we adhere to all the current CDC guidelines. It’s certainly our fortune, a blessing that God has Ms. Val Peacock a retire nurse to keep us on point. Thank you Ms. Val.

Thank you ABCOFLASH Regional office for the N-95 mask we have shared with our essential workers and clients who come for our food program.
