Acts 13:1-3 gives the account of Saul (Paul) and Barnabas’ call to ministry. Verses 2-3 says,
“While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.”
For the past several years I have had the privilege of watching God move powerfully in Jon, Tianna, Nia, Cora, Atlas, and Mason Bowden. Knowing that God has entrusted them with His calling, the time has come for us to send them on their way. This will be a bittersweet time. This family is loved, and they will be missed. Still, in obedience to the Holy Spirit’s work, we bless them as they move away for Jon to attend seminary. Please join us this Sunday as Jon will be preaching, and we pray over him and his family before they move.
