Grace Alone

Words and Music by Scott Wesley Brown, Jeff Nelson

Every promise we can make
Every prayer and step of faith
Every difference we can make
Is only by His grace.

Every mountain we will climb
Every ray of hope we shine
Every blessing left behind
Is only by His grace

Grace alone Which God supplies
Strength unknown He will provide
Christ in us, our cornerstone
We will go forth in grace alone.

Every soul we long to reach
Every heart we hope to teach
Everywhere we share His peace
Is only by His grace.

Every loving word we say
Every tear we wipe away
Every sorrow turned to praise
Is only by His grace.


Our Pastor used these verses in Ephesians last Sunday in his preaching and I am overwhelmed by God's grace. Everything I do I know I was able to do it because of God's grace. EVERYTHING.

Ephesians 2:8-10 (New International Version)

8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Feeding and Literacy Update

Hi everyone!

As scheduled, we started the feeding and literacy program last Saturday. I must say the kids loved it and had fun the whole time! The teacher assigned is awesome, she taught them the creation from Genesis, my husband taught them two songs, and then we taught them proper hand washing and they love the coloring activities. We were just there in the street at first but it rained so we squeezed them into a small covered space, when the rain stopped we were out there on the street again.

It was so much fun! We had many volunteers and observer as we are of course planning to start another one in another urban poor area next month.

We still need lots of stuff, like our first aid kit is not yet complete and we still need some coloring books and crayons. I hope to buy some of those when they goes on sale this week.

I have tons of pictures but I haven't uploaded them yet. I'll post them soon. Thank you for prayers. We hope you keep on praying for this ministry.
