BCCA MESSENGER October, 2022
Harmoniously blending the work of redemption and education
Greetings BCCA Families,
As I once again watch the leaves begin to change color and fall to the ground, I am again reminded of the seasons we go through as humans. A new season is beginning in my life, as my family unpacks box after box we enter into the season of putting down roots in our new community. After years in the mission field we are finally going to get to stay in a community long enough to make friends and stay a while. Another family is entering into the season of family growth as they welcome a new baby. Still another is going through a season of trials. Whatever season we find ourselves in, Jesus is always ready and waiting to walk with you in this season. In worship this week we talked about praising God and thanking God during every circumstance. It’s not always an easy thing to do, and it takes practice, but learning to talk to God about the good and the bad, the easy and the hard, or the ups and the downs, is fitting in every and any season.
