Culture of Caring

What a Wonderful time we had at the 2020 ASR Rally!
The rally was held July 29 through August 1 In beautiful Nashville, Indiana. We appreciate all the hard work and planning that went into this event. We had 40 plus bikes and many vehicles. I know it took much preparation to plan the routes for the rides, restaurants big enough to hold everyone and to work with the local church for our services.
Our first meeting for the Chaplains was held this year and Bro. Mark Hardin did a fantastic job with this very informative meeting. I heard so many words of help and how to be compassionate in ways I hadn’t thought of. How, sometimes, just be there. Sit quietly, doing nothing, just a presence. Sis. Theodore, Bro. Perry and Bro. Hennigan did an amazing job and was very informative!
The Pentecostals of Nashville were AMAZING! They worked with a big smile for all the riders.
Thank you to each of them and to Bro. Dupree for his leadership and involvement!
Wednesday night was a great tent singing with the spirit of God moving all around! What a glorious time of praise and fellowship.
Thursday Night we had Bro Scotty Grimh, Missionary to East Africa. What a blessing he was. I thank God for the money raised to bless him with 6 motorcycles. The service was so powerful and the presence of the lord was mighty! Souls were blessed beyond measure.
Bro Grimh even hung around and joined our ride Friday.
We had a beautiful ride Friday and a delicious lunch served by Sis Bubbly and crew❤️ Friday night service was a blow out! How mighty is our God? Bro. Doughty from Mattoon, Ill did a fantastic job!
We closed out Saturday with the annual business meeting and lunch. It is always so sad to have to say goodbye to everyone. One day, and I don’t believe it will be long, we will never have to leave one another again.
During this week together, you could not only see the love, But feel the unity and love among our Azusa Streetriders. Some of us only see each other once a year, but there is a love between everyone constantly. It is so comforting to know we have brothers and sisters in Christ that carries us in prayer and love.
We sure missed Bro. and Sis. Bealle this year! Our prayers for them continuously!

Culture of Caring

 

We are facing such difficult times in our world. Each and every day we hear more and more of ongoing riots, discontent, racism, division and no respect for  anyone in authority.  Our country is changing, and not for the good by any means.
God has been taken out of the equation by so many when HE is the ONLY one that can heal our broken society and unify our people.
The devil is on the loose in a mighty way. Minds are confused and distorted in what is right and wrong.
2 Timothy 3:1-5. But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.  For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness but denying its power.  Avoid such people.  
The church is being ridiculed and mocked as people destroy hope of togetherness.  How much further will things go? How long will innocent people die for absolutely no wrong doing?  We need healing in our government, in our communities and in ourselves.  Until God is back where he belongs, there will be no peace. We must bind together as the church to cover our president, our police officers, military personnel, our friends and our families in constant prayer.

We are believing for the following prayer requests:

Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding and a hunger to know God more intimately.

President Donald Trump  Vice President Pence

Culture of Caring

COMPASSION- sympathetic pity and concern for the suffering or misfortunes of others.

How many times do we practice showing compassion to those around us that are suffering, hurting, or are struggling due to circumstances they can not control?
In this day and time so many are facing hardships and feel like they have nowhere to turn or anyone that will listen. It is very important for us to show compassion and love just as Jesus did. Psalms 86:15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of and gracious, long suffering, and compassion plenteous in mercy and truth. Psalms 111:4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. 

Our human nature sometimes wants to rise up in our spirit and think that maybe that person deserves what they are dealing with, if they wouldn’t have done this or that, they wouldn’t be going through that. I know I have been guilty of feeling that old streak of-that’s what you get and it’s about time something goes wrong for you the way you act! Haha.
I pray God keeps my mind and heart from hatefulness or envy and let’s me have pure compassion  anyone in need. It is not my place to be a judge on their behavior but to show kindness and understanding.
Jesus looked through his eyes at those that persecuted him, mocked him, and judged him with such great compassion. I want to be more like Jesus! Psalms 145:8 says The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. We can practice daily in our conversations we have and merely by our actions. So many people are searching right now, trying to understand and to find something reliable, long lasting that they can depend on no matter the circumstance. They are hungry and it’s time for the church to show compassion to the lost like we never have before.
Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
My prayer is for people to see compassion in me. I want to have love and understanding in my heart that I may show compassion to a point where people feel the love of Jesus flowing through me. I pray that we all, as Azusa Streetriders, show that example of God in us to everyone we meet. May they feel the presence of God and feel the compassion in our hearts as we witness and reach out to them for their souls to be saved! They are starving and we have the answer!
