Sunday night Koasi preached about "The Secrets of Abundant Life." in John chapter 15, by abiding in the vine. While teaching he said we obey God out of fear. A proper fear. God wants us to go beyond and obey out of love. He also mentioned a servant has a fear of the master, but doesn't have access to the master, like a friend does. God wants us to be a friend. A friend has access to the master. Have fear but also go beyond fear and have a relationship of love.

Joh 15:15  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Here are a few of our friends:

Peter came over Saturday night and then went to church with us on Sunday. It was his birthday on Thursday.  So I made him a cake. He was surprised. They don't celebrate their birthdays here. Many of them don't know when their birthdays are. Some know the month but not the date and some older folks know the year but that is all. He said, "I didn't get a cake for my birthday, I had to work. Carrying bags of cement, I had a headache afterwards." We said, well sometimes that happens, you have to do what you have to do. Peter is 15 years old.

William came to church this Sunday. His mother Comfort and sister Rebekah came as well. He also brought a friend Junior. That is encouraging that he wants to see others come to church and get saved. Mack is doing a Bible study with William at his house on Saturdays.

Comfort, Rebekah, William and Junior

Kendall has been with us since we came to Takoradi. He was a neighbor boy who came over to play with our boys. He started coming to church and got saved. We have known Kendall since he was 11 years old. He will be 20 in May. He will graduate from school in May as well. They are all getting old.

Pro_18:24  A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
