News & Views from Pastor Terry Wilcox

I hope you enjoy the ministry of my good friend, Richard Lauby, this Sunday at 10:00am at Kathleen High School or from anywhere else online. Richard and his father before him have spent their lives as ministers of Jesus Christ. Lord willing, I will be worshipping in Seattle with my daughter, son-in-law, and unborn granddaughter. On July 28, I plan to be with those of you in Lakeland.

Danielle and I appreciate your prayers for the sale of our home in Bridgeport. We may have found a home to rent in the Bridgewater development, on the east side of Lakeland. We are waiting to hear from the landlord. We continue to make our house in CT ready for marketing.

I love to read Jesus’ prayer in John 17. In the last third of the prayer he prays specifically for us. Verses 20 & 21 say:

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
John 17:20 & 21 (NIV)

He in us, that the world may believe. I find God’s plan incredible. He has chosen you and me! What a life changing truth! Let your heart feast on it.
