I HOPE all of us, including our leaders, go to church every Sunday to hear the Good News from our deacons and priests, and partake of the Body of Christ.  

It is easy to believe in the miracles of the Bible if one understands the Good Book.

We, including our leaders, should be guided by Jesus Christ’s teachings. We should always value truth and honesty while we reflect on Jesus Christ’s sorrow and suffering which He endured for  the forgiveness of all sins.

From Matthew, chapter 20, verses 26-28:

“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave —  just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

From 2 Corinthians, chapter 4, verses 8-10:

“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.”
