Andy had been a long time member at Holy Spirit Anglican Church. He was active in fellowship and worship. Several years ago he encountered a number of setbacks including: knee replacement surgery, arthritis, and additional strongholds that held him in bondage. A result was that Andy was no longer in relationship with the Body of Christ and was trying to live independently with the Lord alone. Soon he was no longer reading scripture and worshiping in song with his guitar
This past Thanksgiving, as we were giving out Thanksgiving baskets to those in special need, Andy was called to see if we could stop by to see him and bring over a Thanksgiving basket. Andy, with excitement, invited us to visit him. As we entered Andy’s home there was a joy in the reconnecting of relationships. Andy was blessed that he was not forgotten. It was a revelation that God had not forgotten or turned His back on Andy. That night we shared the Lord, prayed and worshipped. The Lord rebuilt a bridge between Andy and Himself. A bridge was also rebuilt between Andy and Christ’s Body, the Church. Andy’s love for Christ, worshipping with his guitar and reading scripture returned. Since that night in November, Andy has returned to worship and fellowship with the church. He once again reflects the love, joy and transforming power of Christ as he worships, ministers and shares his testimony. It is never too late to come home to Christ and His Body.
