"LOVE IN A BOX "
River of Life International Church is currently storing an enormous ammount of love
in a large number of shoeboxes cartoned up awaiting collection.
It gladdens my heart to see your committed response to the appeal again this year.
I thank you so very much for your support and appreciate your prayers for this ministry,
the boxes at church and the children who will receive them.
I have been reading and watching some wonderful stories of how receiving a
shoebox has changed a childs life for the better.
Stories and lots of information can be found on the OCC Website.

Samaritan's Purse - Water Filters
Historically, at RoL, we have taken up a Special Offering at this time of year for
the Samaritan's Purse Water Filter Appeal.
Donations from this offering provide families with a BioSand water filter,
giving them clean water for years (£70 Each)
Due to the current pandemic and additional demand this is putting on
peoples finances, the SLT & Trustees decided not to take up an offering from
the fellowship this year but will make a donation directly to this appeal from Church funds.
To make a personal donation, please...

Presents the Morning Message
Key Scripture Passage - 1 Corinthians 12:1-10
"Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed.
The Morning Message will PREMIER simultaneously
2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led
astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the
Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,”
except by the Holy Spirit.
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.
5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working,
but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message
of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy,
to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,
and to still another the interpretation of tongues"

Give them hope and a fresh purpose.
May your Heavenly light of love and salvation release all those living in darkness today.
