For the Joy!

Hey there!

Andrew allowed me to take a moment to write to you and I am so so grateful because tonight, the Lord reminded me of the power that comes from the Holy Spirit. He brings JOY to the mediocrity of our lives. Amen? This past year, Renovo Ministries has gone through quite a bit of adjustment and change. It has been pretty amazing to watch how the Lord has used this year to prepare and equip us for what is to come!

This summer, by His grace, Renovo lunch will continue and we will be returning to Trinity Episcopal Church, which in the past has served as an amazing place of joy and fellowship for our weekly lunches. I am SO excited about this move! Additionally, the children's ministry at Crestmont will also continue in some capacity. This amazing group of folks has monthly been going to the Crestmont community on the North side of Bloomington to serve and love the children there. So if you're going to be in Bloomington and want to be involved, please email us! renovo.ministries@gmail.com.

Recently, it has been really clear that many of us have been trudging through a spiritual swamp. Apathy and laziness have plagued us and it has been extremely tiring, hasn't it? But the Lord speaks to this in Isaiah 43:18-19 reading, “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." Declare that with joy, children of God! He is doing a new thing in us and through us.

Here exists a chance for you to pray, serve, and grow in the blessings of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. It has been a while since I personally have tasted the fresh life of Jesus, but I was reminded tonight through watching the Renovo Ministries video.

Check it out and be blessed! Come and serve with us! Our aim is to glorify God, love each other, and learn what it means to actively live out this precious faith that we have been given. He came that we might have life and have it to the full! There is restoration, brothers and sisters. We have been set free...it's truth. Hope to see you soon!
