    Thank you so very much Papa Rick for this highly inspired and motivated message.
    Having been in ministry training for 20 years ( February 1998- February 2018), I am inspired to build my ministry on nothing but the “Promises of God”.
    God bless you abundantly.

    Thanks Pastor Rick Warren
    Your testimony and meandering journey has lifted me even in this desert I am living in waiting for renewal. It is true we shall be resurrected to meet our resurrected children; your son Matthew and my daughter Tricia. After 50 years of ministry and several church splits I still hold on to the promise that Christ is building His church. Thanks for reminding me of Gal. 6:9 to do good under all circumstances and never give up.

    Our stories are similar with a very small difference! We both were called to plant churches, you were a fourth generation Christian, I came from a Hindu family! Mathew 28:18-20 was personal command for me. You were led by the Lord into ministry, I was driven out from the village to come and settle in this town in 1974, and I am still here serving as the founding pastor! You are led by different promises, I was led by inner whispering of the Holy Spirit. The Lord sustained you wonderfully, by Faith, I worked with my own hands to support the family.
    You experienced the loss of your son, enriched in your Faith, I lost my son on May 14th 2018, realizing the Lord gave, He took away, glory to His name! I too became stronger in Faith for resurrection, to be able to see him again.
    Be encouraged brother!

  12. Thank you! This had blessed me and encouraged me to continue trusting God.

  13. This has really encouraged me.
    I am trusting God for so many things in my life and with this piece today I know I can press in until I touch the hem of His garment.Sometimes it’s not easy to keep trusting, to keep believing and to keep hoping but with His word and promises I can make it through Christ who strengthens me.

    Thanks again and God bless you
