Alberta Joint Thanksgiving Service

Posted on: 1 Comment

The following below is a report by Misn. Matthew Jun from Calgary UBF.

Happy Thanksgiving, M. Luke Hong!

May God fill you with the fullness of thanksgiving and His grace!

On last Sunday, we had a very graceful joint Thanksgiving worship
service with Alberta UBF from Edmonton. M. Noah and Grace, Shepherds
David and Deborah, and Brother Fred came to Calgary. Actually it was
not the best time for Fred, young sheep, to visit us because of his
upcoming exam, but he willingly joined the worship service and spent
whole day here. From us, Sister Jenny attended with a delicious food
(Gahl-Bih).

I delivered a message from Psalm 118, and serving this passage I came
to remember what I should most be thankful for — God’s amazing
salvation grace, answering our prayer and God’s unfailing love and
grace for us. Shep. David Jang told me that he learned he should be
always thankful, even doing very tough graduate study. Shep. David and
Deborah played very beautiful music pieces as their thanksgiving
offering to God. Brother Fred wanted to play his Saxophone, but the
musical instrument was out of order the day before visit. He promised
to visit Calgary UBF again someday to play his music to God! Sister
Jenny really liked this meeting with our coworkers in other chapter.

After the worship service we had a delicious Thanksgiving luncheon and
visited U of Calgary campus together, and prayed together for the
campus students.

We thank God for blessing us to have a spiritual fellowship with
Edmonton coworkers. It was very encouraging to see each other. I was
thankful for and impressed by the humbleness and mission-centered life
of M. Noah Jang and the wonderful work of God in Edmonton. I was
encouraged as well as humbled to see the beautiful spiritual life of
our coworkers and the powerful work of God among many students in
Edmonton. I pray that I may live a life of faith in God seeking God’s
help and guidence in every matter to be a true believer and glorify
Him. We hope to visit Alberta UBF for Christmas worship service.

I send some pictures from Thanksgiving joint worship service. Thank
you very much for your prayers and love for us. May God bless you and
all coworkers at the fall term!

As for UBF brochures, would you please send us the brochures by mail?
I’d like to pay the shipping fee involved.

May God bless you!

In Christ
