Message from Jean - SEED FAITH MINISTRY:
It is with great pleasure and honor to have celebrated 19 years of ministry in the Dothan area. I am thankful the Lord has blessed us and kept us along this journey called, “A Walk of Faith.” Our God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us (Ephesians 3:20 NIV).
Ministry Purpose: To share the “good news” of the gospel, through the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Only through Jesus are we saved and delivered from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light.
SEED FAITH – PLANT SEEDS (THE WORD OF GOD), sow throughout the world, not just within the walls of a building. Plant seeds for Salvation, Healing, and Deliverance.
NURTURE – expect a standard of excellence. Harvest SOULS (only God gives the Increase).
S—SALVATION - (forgiveness of sins through Jesus)
E—EDIFICATION - (building up and encouraging)
E—EVANGELIZATION - (spreading the good news)
D—DELIVERANCE – (set free; no longer bound)
FAITH—(Have faith in God; believing the impossible to be possible)
As you continue to walk in the path of blessings, may the God of Increase save, and set the captives free. I have been “blessed to be a blessing”. My prayer request now for each of you is for an increase of “Laborers of Love” into His Harvest (Matthew 9:37).
In closing, “I was only one; but still I am one but smiling down on you. I could not do everything; but still I did something; and because I could not do everything, I did not refuse to do the something that I could do.” (Edward Everette Hale) TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS.
With love and appreciation, for your presence in my life, and for your fervent prayers and support to my family in the coming days, weeks, months and years. “Pressing Forward In Faith”.
In His Service,
