In Preparation of VBS
As we prepare for VBS, as we welcome new believers and little ones, we see the young ones grow. Let’s take a trip down member lane as “Surely there is a lesson here, something we need to know” for us to grow.
The Hewitt's Prayer Letter
“…See I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen & precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in Him, will never be put to shame..."- 1 Peter 2:6
Dear Family & Friends,
So much has happened since our last Prayer Update and we have so much for which we are thankful! Thank you for your faithful prayers! :)
As some of you know, we were praying about a name for the new Church Plant and the Lord directed us to use the name: Cornerstone.
So please take a few minutes to visit and like :) our Facebook page when you get a chance. Thanks so much!
We have been very busy reaching out to new folks in various ways: inviting them to weekly Life Groups (small group Bible Studies), doing Outreach Tea Times, Training & Equipping folks for Kid’s Ministry, Evangelism, Welcome Teams and also as Life Group Leaders, and we are really praying and looking forward to when we can begin our first regular Sunday Services.
Home In August & Missions Night Invitation...
We are also truly grateful to the Lord, that after more than three years, we will be able to come home for about 3 weeks this Summer. We are excited to see all of you and looking forward to a nice time together and some good food! :) However, as the time is so short, we will not be able to visit all of you and your churches individually. We, therefore, decided to do “Missions Night” (where we will give a personal update on the last four (4 years) and we would love to see as many of you as possible and your churches.
So please save the date and we really hope that you can come.

All of your one-time gifts towards our initial set-up funds and are grateful for those who continue to support us monthly, as missionaries in this new and challenging Kingdom Assignment.
