"We move forward with F.L.A.G."
This is the closing statement of Kuya Nap Concepcion, the new Chairman, T.M.F.I.I. Board of Trustees, during the recent Thanksgiving cum General Assembly. He goes on to explain that:
- F – Faith. "It is the assurance of things we hope for and evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) As we face a new year, a new decade, there will be uncertainties, but God called us to step out in faith. "Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I am the one who helps you, declares the Lord; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel." (Isaiah 41:14)
- L – Leadership. One of the remarkable traits of Moses' leadership is his concern for the people of God and contending against injustice. That same passion and concern should be foremost as we take on this ministry among the indigenous people. It will put to rest all the excuses on lack and inadequacy while engaging in ministry.
- A – Anointing. "No matter how efficiently or effectively the hands of man contribute to God’s work, the one thing that gives its meaning and purpose is the glory of God resting upon it. Without Him, the best we can produce is nothing.” (Selwyn Hughes & Trevor Partridge)
- G – Grace. “My grace is sufficient for you.” (2 Corinthians 12:9) Grace is not a position of weakness nor helplessness. Instead, grace is the power of Christ in you! His power is made perfect in our weaknesses. The only reason we can do whatever God entrusted us is through His Grace. Grace is sufficient, that's it, that's all!
<<First Name>>, it is our prayer that this FLAG will guide your 2020 journey. May you move forward with fervent Faith, embracing Jesus's Leadership, empowered by the Anointing of the Holy Spirit, and relying on the sufficient Grace of God.
Have a glimpse of some of the most unforgettable moments of the assembly below. Thank God Pastor Philip Lim, our ministry partner from Palawan, was able to join us in our thanksgiving assembly. He shared a testimony and a message around the theme of our celebration, "Sing unto the Lord for He has triumphed gloriously." (Exodus 15:21)
