We’re now fully into 2017 after having experienced a quite eventful 2016. Instead of speeding headlong into 2017 and getting involved in the busy-ness of ministry, we took time to pause and reflect on what the Lord would have us focus on in terms of the biblical times we live in. Here are some of the insights we were given.

Ever feel like a wilted flower that needs the refreshment that comes from just a few drops of morning dew? God's Word says that King David craved the Lord's presence like a parched deer pants for water (Psalms 42:1).
East Gates has just produced a CD, Blessing Your Spirit. It's composed of 21 blessings (in Mandarin Chinese) taken from Sylvia Gunter and Arthur Burke's popular book, Blessing Your Spirit.
This project came about through the inspiration of Lotus Buds International. They work to encourage, support and educate families in China to adopt their own orphans. Having worked in the country for a number of years, they observed how nannies and caregivers in orphanages needed spiritual food to nourish their soul. After reading Blessing Your Spirit, they thought it would be a good idea for a CD to be produced with that very idea in mind. They approached East Gates on the project.
Some of the blessings cover topics such as: Knowing Your Purpose, Freedom from the Fear of Man, Sound of Heaven, Kingdom of Peace, Seeing God's Fingerprints and more...
