Easter Message

 Christ Has Risen! He has Risen Indeed!

Dear Friends and Supporters

In Matthews Gospel 28: 6-8, we read how an angel of the Lord appeared to the women at the tomb early that first Easter Morning and told them;

He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.

That’s what the resurrection does.  It takes away our fears, hurts, sadness and uncertainties and puts them all into perspective.  The simple fact (there were over 500 witnesses), that Jesus rose from the dead, and was victorious over sin and death is reason beyond doubt to celebrate Easter and give us hope to look not at our earthly circumstances but towards heavens resources.

Twenty seven years ago I also heard the Good News, met the Risen Saviour and saw with my own eyes the “Shekinah” the glory of God.  I also experienced fear but then the joy of accepting Christ’s forgiveness took away my fear and changed my life forever.  Because of this “GOOD NEWS” International Aid Trust was founded and has been used by God to bring this same life changing message to untold numbers across this hurting world somewhere every minute of every single day.

But, without your help none of this would have been possible and on behalf of all our teams, both here in the UK and internationally I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

What happened on that first Easter Day is still changing lives today and can change yours too.  If you don’t know Jesus as your personal friend and saviour you can ask him into your life today – and then see it changed forever.

John 3:16-17  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

May God’s blessing be with and keep you always in His perfect peace.
