Rest in Peace Till Jesus Comes, Cheryl
It is with great sadness that we share that our dear sister and Women’s Ministry Team member, Cheryl Best, passed to rest in Jesus on June 9th, 2021.
Our hearts are filled with deep sorrow, but we know that Cheryl loved the Lord, was a warrior in His service and a wonderful blessing to her family, friends and anyone she could help or encourage!
We know that she was very courageous in her health battle and awaits that glorious morning when Jesus awakens her to take her home with Him! What an awesome day that will be! We will all get together around the throne of God singing praises to the Lamb that gave His life that we might have life abundant and free!
We send our deepest sympathies to Faith, Trey, Margaret and her family, her sisters, and all family members! May God strengthen you and keep you faithful till we meet her again in that heavenly land so bright and fair! There we will have rest, peace and happiness forever more!
With all our love,
Man/Sask Women’s Ministry Committee

Food for Thought
Cultural commentator Craig Detweiler states
“I think the fault is that fame and celebrity enter the highest virtue in culture. It’s the closest thing to getting to heaven or eternal life. In other words, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley are all eternal in pop culture, and so becoming a celebrity is the closest thing to eternal life outside the Church. I see a hunger for celebrity as a hunger for eternity.”
These days Youtube channels, Facebook friends etc…can eat up lots of time. We love to learn from the web and see what others are doing. We want to feel connected to others and stay in touch. However, even though we can learn much and be inspired from others' stories and experiences on the web, are we taking the time to equally ‘like’ verses in our Bibles, ‘subscribe’ to Christ’s teachings and become one of His ‘followers’? Is Christ our ultimate ‘Influencer’ and best ‘Friend’? With Christ you also don’t have to worry about Him blocking or un-friending you!
How great are His signs,
how mighty His wonders!
His kingdom is an eternal kingdom;
His dominion endures from generation to generation.
Our Monthly Devotional Thought
We live in a decision-making era, every day, from the moment we open our eyes we begin to make decisions. You decide to stay in bed or to get up and start your daily routine; making decisions is not a new thing, we all know what it means to make decisions.
There is a fresh crisp earthy smell as I open my windows in the spring. It's amazing how this lifts my soul.
A young girl was the servant in the home of the local pastor. One day a group of ministers met in the pastor's home, and they got to discussing Paul's advice to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thess 5: 17). How to do this, they could not explain.
Approaching your relationship with God from a playful perspective might have some lessons to help us in our understanding of who God is and who He made us to be.
