Missionaries at Grace United Methodist Church
On Sunday, Jan. 24, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Grace UMC Fellowship Hall, Ashleigh and Philip Irwin will share their experiences as Missionaries in Southeast Asia. Ashleigh (from Indiana and great niece of Carolyn and Johnny Turner) and Philip (from Virginia) met on a mission trip while in college. Their relationship grew, they married and both felt a calling to serve in Southeast Asia. In answering the call to ministry, Philip went to seminary at Liberty University and they began learning the language and customs of the country.
Ashley and Philip will also introduce their daughters, Bella (4 years old) and Emma (two years old). Bella was born in the United States and Emma was born in Hong Kong. The girls are also missionaries as Bella has already demonstrated her faith when they visited a Buddhist Temple. Bella spoke boldly that their god will break and cannot talk to you.
Plan now to gather at 9:30 a.m. in the Grace UMC Fellowship Hall to meet and get to know our guest missionary speakers and enjoy refreshments prepared by the Johnny Sanders Circle.

God is all-powerful and so if He is with us who can be against us? The world is an often messy and terrible place, so much so that it seems like evil will prevail over good. The truth, however, is that whatever triumphs those who give themselves over to and practice evil enjoy are only temporary. Inevitably they will be defeated and must stand before a righteous God who will judge them and from whose verdicts there is no appeal. This has always been a great comfort to those who place their trust in God and try to live their lives and behave in ways that are pleasing to Him and are a blessing to those around them. Good wins in the end because God is good and no evil, no matter how insidious, violent, cruel and cunning can prevail against Him. The Christian knows this and knows that having Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is the best thing they can ever have in their lives and because of that they can lay the challenges they face at His feet and He will help them overcome them. Jesus is all we need and He will provide us with all we need in this life and beyond.
