Please join COGWA President Jim Franks as he delivers news from the office, including a prayer request for those being threatened by Hurricane Florence and those who will be traveling on behalf of the Church during the upcoming Festival season. A special request is made for Joel Meeker who has been on an extremely challenging trip to French-speaking Africa. The command for the Feast is that we rejoice. This is an important component of the Feast and directly addresses the example we will set this year. Enjoy the Feast by rejoicing—but more than just at the Feast, rejoice before the Feast and after the Feast as well. Your example does have an impact on others.
