Dear brothers and sisters around the world,
Warm Christian greetings with the following inspired words: “Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us, therefore, cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light…. Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof” (Romans 13:11, 12, 14).
Recently, I had the privilege of visiting some of our elderly pioneers. One of them said to me: “Brother Silva, every sunset we experience is a sign that the coming of the Lord is nearer.” When we knelt to pray, I realized that the main hope of that brother is to go home with Christ soon.
By the grace of the Lord the Ottawa Church was blessed with two additional members that were received following the ordinance of baptism that was performed in Montreal church.
