Convoy of Hope at work in devastated Florida after Hurricane Michael

Written by Staff on October 16, 2018 – 11:54 am -

Convoy of Hope is in Florida helping those affected by Hurricane Michael

Convoy of Hope is in Florida helping those affected by Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael brought much devastation to the panhandle of Florida, especially to the northwest coastal towns like Mexico Beach and Panama City. We have readership in that area, and so many of you from across the country and in other countries have asked how to send aid quickly, directly and securely. We believe the Convoy of Hope, already in the area now, is a great resource for aid to those affected by the hurricane.

On their website, Convoy of Hope states: “As a faith-based, nonprofit organization, Convoy of Hope has helped more than 100 million people throughout the world by sharing food, water, emergency supplies, agricultural know-how and opportunities that empower people to live independent lives free from poverty, disease and hunger.” They have shown up-to-date relief efforts on their site, and their latest statement gives a current view of aid to the needy.

OCTOBER 16, 2018 | 12:25 P.M. SPRINGFIELD, MO.  Convoy of Hope is responding in full force to help communities affected by Hurricane Michael. Since the storm made landfall, we’ve distributed more than 300,000 pounds of product to 15,000 individuals from our central distribution hub in Marianna, Florida.

Using drive-thru distribution, Convoy staff and volunteers are serving families and individuals with water, food, ice, hygiene kits, and other disaster relief supplies. Mobile distribution has also begun, and we’ve delivered supplies in 18 surrounding communities.

We are currently moving our distribution hub in Marianna from Walmart to Rivertown Community Church. The move allows Convoy to set up a more permanent location and will provide us with 15,000 square feet of warehouse space for product.

The pictures posted of Marianna, Florida, were sent from Angela Marie Parker who grew up there and who still has family in the area, many who are needing immediate aid. Parker is like many of our readers, feeling helpless because she is too far away to assist those that are in need.

“The Gibbs Family is generously helping out my niece. She has 2 babies and one on the way. So they are helping get her babies supplies,” says Parker. “I feel out of sorts not being there helping them all. My hometown will never be the same.”

Torchmen in concert are better than ever

Tight harmony. Well-crafted songs. Meaningful lyrics. Audience connection. All of these phrases describe a good male gospel quartet, and these days you won’t find much better than the Torchmen from southern Ontario.

A short time ago, these gentlemen were at Triple C Bible Camp outside of Simcoe, Ont., presenting a concert that would complete the camp’s series for the season. The rustic auditorium was full of many friends of the quartet, who come to this area about once a year. The crowd responded enthusiastically to the songs, many of which were from the Torchmen’s “Faithful” album, reviewed here.

Opening with the worshipful, “Faithful Father,” the award-winning quartet showed their blend, born of years of friendship, recording and touring together. The current group is made up of two voices that are synonymous with the Torchmen and two others that have sung with the group in the past and have returned.

Torchmen at Triple C. Photo by Joan WalkerJon Hisey, bass singer and audio manager of the group, proved adept at both the new sound board and the low notes for the evening. Closer to the bottom of the musical staff than ever, Hisey shone on “Good Things” and an older tune, “The Cross Was His Own.”

Tenor Sandy MacGregor was at the top of his game with, “The Warrior is a Child,” and the Garry Shepard tune, “He’s All I Need.”

JTorchmen at Triple C. Photo by Joan Walkereff Tritton, lead singer, brought a feeling of Christmas with, “New Kid in Town,” and excelled on, “I’ll Keep on Leanin.'”

Challenging the audience with the message of “What If Someone,” Tritton asked the sobering question, “Where would I be now if I hadn’t heard the message of Jesus Christ, how He died to save me from the power of sin and rose again to give me eternal life? What if no one told me?” And the immediate follow-up, “Who have I told about my Savior?”

Mike Moran, patriarch of the group, has been singing the baritone part for almost five decades. He is a warm and congenial emcee, leading the group from song to song, with short introductions and a few occasional quips.

TorchmenThe highlight of the evening was Moran’s rendition of, “Reunion With You.” An unparalleled ability to communicate message and emotion have made this vocalist a favorite of audiences across the country.

A Torchmen concert is always a time of entertainment, contemplation, inspiration and motivation. The Christ followers in the congregation were encouraged to make the love of Jesus known to others through their “DNA: Divine Nature Apparent.” Always ending with a challenge to all to draw closer to the Lord, those who haven’t yet experienced the power of God in their lives were invited to let His love change their lives.

This ministry of the Torchmen quartet has been vital and flourishing for almost 50 years. Their latest album, “50: Through The Years,” features songs from every lineup the group has produced over the last five decades. 20 cuts of the Torchmen’s best tunes showcase the history of both the group and gospel music over the years; this album is a must-have for quartet fans and gospel music historians.

As we move into 2019, the Torchmen sound better than ever and are sure to keep on encouraging, challenging and inspiring audiences with a smile, through the next decade and beyond.

The Long Road Home

Exodus 13:17-18

 

17 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: 18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

Ernest W. Blandly wrote the hymn, ‘Where He Leads Me I Will Follow’. It’s a song that I’ve known all my life. Or, at least as long as I can remember. You remember the refrain:

Where He leads me I will follow,

I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way!

We sing it.

But, do we mean it . . .

. . . even if it means rough waters?

. . . what if it takes me to the Garden of Gethsemane?

. . . not to mention, if it leads to dark Calvary?

. . . I’ll go with Him . . . All the way.

 

Have you noticed that following God’s plan for your life isn’t always easy? Hey, if we’re honest, life isn’t easy. And, it’s not even always fun. But, we know that God is always good, so we can trust Him while we follow Him on this journey. There’s no better illustration of this reality than when God led the children of Israel out of Egypt during the Exodus.

 

Remember, it took the Israelites 40 years to get to the Promised Land. In reality – it should’ve only taken them a few days, or a couple weeks. And then, when they get there because of their fear they didn’t enter in for another 40!

 

There is no doubt that it wasn’t God’s initial plan for it to take them that long to receive the promise. However, God did delay the plan. Not for years. But, He didn’t lead them on the shortest route. You could say that He led them on the long road home . . .

 

That’s what I want us to look at over the next few weeks.

 

To many of us, it seems as though we might be on the long road home. What I want us to understand is this:

 

The God who redeems and delivers His people,

will also guide and protect them.

We need to be reminded of this. And, as we journey with the Israelites on this road we’ll see that God chose this path:

 

Because, He knew where they had been.
He also knew what they would face
The long road home was necessary to prepare them for what was to come
And, to remind them of His constant, faithful Presence with His people

 

These are lessons we all must learn.

 

So, will you join me this month?

 

Whether you are on the long road or not . . . We all need to be reminded of God’s faithfulness on this journey.

 

Grab your bags.

 

It’s time to hit the road . . .

Weekend Word From SGN Scoops

Written by scoopsnews on October 13, 2018 – 6:00 am -

Weekend Word

Jesus stooped down and with his finger, He wrote on the ground.” – John 8:6

WHOEVER IS WITHOUT SIN…

The Pharisees had just brought an adulteress before Jesus and demanded, “Jesus, what do you say?”

Silence.

The Bible doesn’t tell us what Jesus wrote in the sand that day.

Maybe He wrote scripture.

Perhaps He was writing, “Where is the man?” Doesn’t adultery involve two?

Or perhaps He was writing the sins of the Pharisees who were accusing this woman.

Maybe Jesus just needed time to collect His thoughts, because He was angry that they were humiliating this woman just to get at Him.

I have no idea what He wrote, but I’ll tell you what I believe was taking place. I believe that Jesus’ heart was absolutely breaking as He knelt in the sand. When He looked at this woman, His passion for the lost was causing His heart to break at how she was being treated as an object, unworthy of life. His heart was also breaking because He looked at the Pharisees and realized they just didn’t get it. Jesus would have been totally justified to get in the Pharisees faces and say, “You guys don’t get it! I came not to judge but to save.” (John 3:17)

But Jesus didn’t do that. He didn’t blow His top and blast them. In an amazing display of self-control and compassion for this woman, He finally stood and said, “Whoever is without sin, you throw the first stone.”

They slowly drifted away, dropping their stones as they left. Jesus, in a moment, transferred the humiliation from the woman to the religious men. What wisdom. What a man, this Jesus. You gotta love Him. I surely do. How about you?

(Right From The Heart Ministries)

Happy Saturday!

ABOUT SANDI PATTY:
As one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time with five Grammy® awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, and eleven million units sold, Sandi Patty is simply known as “The Voice.”
Sandi is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, with 40 Dove Awards. She was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and as an Indiana Living Legend in 2007. She has released over 30 albums and this November 2018, will release her latest book,The Voice.
Sandi was introduced to the world with her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner during the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986. Virtually overnight she became one of the country’s best-loved performers. Her version of the national anthem has become synonymous with patriotic celebration, including performances at “A Capitol Fourth” with the National Symphony, the Indianapolis 500, the Dedication of Camp David Chapel, and ABC’s Fourth of July Special.
While her thirty-year career is heavily rooted in the gospel music industry, Sandi has had the opportunity in more recent years to extend her career outside the genre. Sandi has performed with symphonies across the country, including the New York Pops, Boston Pops, Cincinnati Pops, Dallas Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Houston Symphony, and Oklahoma City Philharmonic. She also headlined the title role in sold-out performances of the musical “Hello, Dolly!” with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, co-starring Tony Award winner Gary Beach in January 2012.
In addition to her prolific musical career, Sandi is also an accomplished author. For the bestseller Broken on the Back Row, Sandi received the 2006 Silver Angel Award. Her down-to-earth style and sturdy common sense have endeared her to Women of Faith® audiences, with whom she has traveled with since 2005. She’s an example to all of us of the freedom that comes from learning how to move on, learning from her mistakes and letting God use her in any circumstance.
“I am grateful for the many opportunities for God has given in my life and for how He has allowed me to spread my wings,” says Sandi. “Singing is my way to tell my story of hope, life, and love.”
Sandi and her husband, Don, have eight children. They currently reside in Oklahoma City, OK.
