Dear Church Family,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ! It is with a mix
of emotions that I write to you today.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to be
with you in person this Sabbath as I
am currently in Miami, Florida,
preaching in an evangelistic series.
While I am saddened to be away from
you all, I am also filled with joy and anticipation knowing
that the Holy Spirit is at work in both places.

As we gather in Miami, our hearts are united in prayer,
asking the Holy Spirit to move mightily among the
people, just as we have witnessed His power in our own
church. We are fervently praying for hearts to be
touched, lives to be transformed, and souls to be saved
through the preaching of the Gospel.

Even though we are physically apart, please know that
you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I miss our
fellowship and the warmth of our church family, but I
am comforted by the knowledge that we are connected
through the love and grace of our Heavenly Father. I
eagerly look forward to reuniting with you all next
Sabbath, filled with stories of God’s faithfulness and the
amazing work He is doing in Miami.

In my absence, our dear brother Luke Hamel has
graciously stepped in to share the Word of God with
you today. Luke has a message on his heart that he is
eager to deliver, and he wanted me to pass a few words
on to you:

“The book of Revelation has many warnings for the
people on earth during the time of the end.
These warnings, though meant to be revealing,
have become confused due to their use of prophetic
symbols and imagery. I believe that the book of
Jeremiah, and other pre-captivity prophetic books,
are great tools in helping us understand what the
warnings of Revelation mean for us, and how we
should respond. This message from the Word
is a truth which has set me free from
myself and my own spiritual complacency.
I pray you are all blessed.”

I trust that Luke’s message will uplift and inspire you,
drawing you closer to God and strengthening your faith.
Even though my wife Giovanna and I are not able to be
with you in person this Sabbath, please know that we are
thinking of you all and holding you in our hearts. We
will continue to pray for God’s abundant blessings to be
poured out upon you all.

May the peace of God be with you today and always.

With love and blessings,
Pastor Raul Alvarez
