"Trust in the Lord with all your heart & lean not on your own understanding..." Proverbs 3:5-6

Rectora Message

I want every one to know how the weekend theme came about.  I did like Fully Rely On God (F.R.O.G.) for a long time and used it a lot on other weekends for Palanca.  But now I had to think about what I would use as a theme for God’s weekend for E-121and I thought at that time that I would not use F.R.O.G. but God had other plains and he said to me, is that not what you have been doing my child this last Year and 1⁄2 in dealing with Brian’s cancer and what a witness you both have been to my Love for you.  So that is why we are using F.R.O.G. and Proverbs 3: 5&6 (Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. in all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.)  And that is what Brian & I did and as the caregiver I was truly doing Proverbs 3:5&6 and I then said ok to the Lord and what a great way to honor our Lord for what he has done in my life and Brian’s for he did pulled us through this time in our Lives when we need him the most and what a great way  to witness and show the Ladies who will be walking on E-121 just how powerful our Lord is and that He will be with them just as He was with Brian & me. 

The logo/banner - I just wanted to let you all know that our Frog is truly Relying on God.  As you can see she is standing on the snout of the alligator and with all her heart she is FROGing and trusting in the Lord.  Also with her hand held high and PRAISING THE LORD she is acknowledging Him knowing that in the midst of her circumstance He will take care of her and direct her path.

Teaming - it is well on its way and we need your prayers for the team and for the Ladies of E-121that are now being called.  We the cadre will be doing assignments this weekend on Sat.Oct.9 at about 1pm. and will be giving them out on the 16th.
We know that God is in Charge and that His Will will be done.
