Philippians 4:13-23closePhilippians 4:13-23 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. 14 Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. 15 And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. 16 Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again. 17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit. 18 I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. 19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. Final Greetings 21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you. 22 All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar's household. 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.

This week Pastor Ken Driedger will be on duty Sunday through Thursday.

Thank you to so many of you for your generous donations. We are working together to bring 2 families to Ontario who have been persecuted for their faith and have been looking for a new place to call home. These 2 families are connected to our Hmong friends who we helped assimilate to Canada many years ago. As of last Sunday, we have raised almost $20,000. That leaves $33,000, until we reach our goal of $53,000. If you would still like to contribute, please make your cheque payable to Wideman Mennonite Church and write on the bottom of the cheque, WELCOME THE STRANGER-GROUP of 5. Thanks so much for helping in this way!
