Pathways leadership team recently spent a weekend away with leaders from other churches, together with Dave and Carol Cape who will be heading up the new 'Acts Life' Cluster which is part of Church of the Nations.
During the following week our whole church had the opportunity to spend an evening with Dave and Carol when they came out to Lenham and shared a meal with us. Everyone had a chance to meet them and hear some of their life stories and Dave's heart for the new cluster.
Dave and Carol have been in leadership for a number of years and are great evangelists at heart, sharing the gospel across many nations. They are such an inspiring couple with their many stories of life on the road carrying the cross and bowl, seeing many people come into relationship with Jesus.
It was so good to watch the way they sat with us, getting to know new people, completely at ease in new surroundings. Both share the good news of the kingdom so easily and praise for the Lord's goodness is in each conversation. It was great to be reminded to listen to God and trust in him, allowing our faith to grow with each footstep we take on our journey.
Dave has authored a couple of books, and as such he is the source of those writings. Paul describes Jesus as an author in Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV), He is the source of our faith. We are inspired by what He did here on the earth 2000 years ago, bringing about healing, freedom and comfort just as it was promised in Isaiah 61, and spoken by Jesus in Luke 4. We continue to see that evidenced now in both our own lives and the lives of those around us.
I hope we never stop being inspired to do good works.
