Our Pastor, Bro. Paul Simpson, received a phone call this past Wednesday, from the attorney for our Church. The news was very disheartening. Without giving any specific reason, the buyer of our property has pulled out of the deal. It's as though we had a carrot dangling before us, which was suddenly snatched away.
Bro. Paul encouraged us to continue trusting the Lord and being faithful to pray for the future of MHBC. It is essential we not get ahead of the timing of the Lord. Although this setback came as a shock, we must trust that our all knowing God is still in control and not allow fear and discouragement to dampen our spirit or hinder our work for the Lord. We must remain steadfast and trust the Lord to supply every need, direct each and every step we take, knowing we are exactly where God wants us to be.
Although we have no immediate idea what the future holds, we know who holds our future and need not fear tomorrow, for God is already there.
