On Sunday we celebrated Tree Of Life's first birthday with a celebration with our family from Church of Love & Grace and it was a blessing to have Shaddie & Lisa with us from Simon's Bay Christian Church.
It was a great time of worshiping together but it was also a humbling time for us as Dean was appointed as lead elder of the church. We really feel humbled and privileged to be tasked with this role and we're very excited about where God is leading us and what he is doing.
It's very humbling to have been asked to lead Tree Of Life and even more so to know that a year on the members of the church want Dean to lead it. It's a role Dean has desired for a while and it's fantastic when God gives us the desires of our heart. "Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this." Psalm 37:4-5
Now it's time to get the sleeves rolled up and get our hands dirty for the kingdom.
Graham leads Church of Love & Grace and is an inspiration to us!
