This Week at Mount Hope // December 17-24 , 2018

Welcome to this week's edition of the LOOP. In this email, you will find everything that's happening over the next few weeks within our Mount Hope Community.

How do you live with what you have? Our wealth and possessions are an expression of God's kindness to us. However, at times we may misuse what God has blessed us with, placing  more value on our possessions rather than on the people He has placed in our lives. Our focus sometimes shifts from a reliance on God to our own abilities to accumulate and keep our wealth. We become people focused only on our present circumstances. So how do we as Christians handle wealth and the blessings God has given us? How do we live lives that follow God's design for life?  Join us as explore what James has to say about this in our latest sermon series.  If you missed last week's sermon, you may  listen here .

We would like to invite you to our newest study. We will look at the book  Kiss the Wave, by Dave Furman.  Having lived for more than a decade with a debilitating nerve condition in both arms, Dave Furman encourages us that God allows us to experience trials, into which He infuses significance. It is in these moments that we experience His presence. In this book, he encourages us to embrace the trials we face.  Join us on Tuesday nights in Belmont this Christmas season as we study the book together. 

DATE: Starting Tuesday, January 8

Our GO-SEE Team is headed back to Bulembu! We have the opportunity to work with Bulembu Ministries, Eswatini. We will be serving with one of our partners, Gennie and Muoki Musau on this trip.  Gennie grew up attending Mount Hope and has been serving in Swaziland for over 10 years.  

Bulembu's community care includes a child care program, Bulembu Christian Academy, and Bulembu Clinic, designed to reweave the social fabric that has been worn thin by the AIDS pandemic and rampant unemployment in Swaziland. Utilizing the infrastructure established by the mining industry, Bulembu leadership is discovering numerous opportunities to build innovative, sustainable, and profitable businesses in the community, including a bakery, honey production, dairy, timber, and water.

For more details including the application form, please email the Mount Hope Missions Team or Linnea Molgard. In order to plan for the trip, applications should be turned in by Dec 31, 2018. For more information, please click here.
