This week, Lay Reader Andrew preaches to us on the miracle of the 5 loaves and two fishes. The question is, how much difference can do we think we can make in this world? Are we worried how we can feed the 5,000 with only a small meal? As we see in the disciples, they couldn't feed all those people under their own power-it took Jesus to give the power of abundance to their work!

This is my last post on this blog. Due to new employment, I have re-located interstate and therefore cannot continue the recordings and posts. I want to wish all my regular readers and listeners God's blessings and hope that these posts have been a help to you in your relationship with our Lord and Savior- Jesus Christ.
