#FilipinoLeaders of #SiliconValley

WHF-Bridges Fremont

By Pastor Glem Melo

The past weeks, I spent considerable time with Filipino leaders in five churches and eight cities of the San Francisco  Bay Area, also known as Silicon Valley. I am blessed and encouraged beyond words to see the Lord working in and through them for His kingdom and glory. Please pray that the Lord would continue to bless, keep, grow, empower, and use them all to advance the great commission both locally and globally. And from and with them, may the Holy Spirit form and build a house church planting team that we can work with in order to reach the unreached people groups in their area with the love and gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Pray for California’s Homeless

SJ Homeless

By Pastor Glem Melo

IMG_1032There are 4,500+ homeless persons here in San Jose, California.  All over the San Francisco Bay Area (also known as Silicon Valley), their number is 28,200.

IMG_1026Please pray for churches and ministries that work among and for them.  May they all hear the good news of God’s love and grace in Christ, and be set free from sin and the many, complex difficulties and challenges that beset them.  Ask the Lord to send more churches and ministries to reach and serve them.

Church Plant in Utah

By Pastor Glem Melo

Last Sunday, I had the joy, honor and privilege of preaching and encouraging a new church plant in South Jordan, Utah, near Salt Lake City. Please join me in praying that the Lord would cause our Christian brothers and sisters there to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ.

“Everliving God, whose will it is that all should come to you through your Son Jesus Christ: Inspire our witness to him, that all may know the power of his forgiveness and the hope of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.” – Book of Common Prayer

Jesus is Your King

We live in a universal Christocracy.

Screen Shot 2019-05-21 at 8.10.20 PMJesus came to his disciples and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Matthew 28:18)*

And so, Christ  is the fulfillment of all the prophecies in the Old Testament about the Messiah or “the anointed,” i.e. the God-chosen king of the world. And so, Psalm 72:13-14 comforts and strengthens us:

Jesus “rescues the needy who cry out to him
and the afflicted who have no one to help them.
He has pity on the weak and the needy,
and saves the lives of those in dire conditions.
He rescues them from oppression and violence,
because their lives are precious to him.”

Are you suffering and need help?  God is real, and Jesus is King.  Ask him to help and rescue you, and he will do it.

If you need someone to talk to and pray with, you can call the Billy Graham Center at 1-877-247-2426.  You may also e-mail me at glem@glemmelo.com.

Two weeks ago, I preached on the trustworthiness of the Bible at Park Community Church’s South Rogers Park location. The main point: The Bible is reliable because God is reliable.

Jesus. Kingdom. Miracles.

jesusliberates

By Pastor Glem Melo

In Christ, God’s kingdom has come near.  As the king of heaven and earth, he teaches, heals, and sets people free from the slavery of sin and its consequences.

What are the things or areas of your life that need healing or transformation?  Jesus is who you need.  Indeed, he is the only one who has the power to heal and set you free. Talk to him and ask him for a miracle. He is full of mercy and grace, He will answer your prayer.
