A Word from Rev. Dr. Grace Park

Dear Beloved  NTSWEST Family,

I love foliage, but I am shamefully a brown thumb.  Recently, I purchased a little baby fiddle tree from Trader Joe’s in the hope that it would last more than a few days in our house! I did everything I could to make sure he was comfortable; well fed, but not overfed; had enough light, but not too much light, and I hoped that his life was not doomed under my care!

As I write to you, I am looking out my back patio door, and I see before me my new little fiddle leaf plant. When I saw those fresh new little baby leaves, it made me marvel at God’s provision, goodness and hope in the midst of adversity and challenges.  Those leaves reminded me that there is joy and life all around even when things are difficult.

I hope that this season of the corona virus will make us all stronger in our faith while we are challenged. This is the season where our faith can become more real, when we can love in so many different ways.

Thank you to those of you who have contacted us asking how you can help. Please call one another, email one another, PRAY for one another! Reach out to one another, and give each other an encouraging word. We can love in so many different and new ways!

May God bless you all.  Remain strong in prayer!

I remember Romans 15:13 as I think of you today:

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Be well,
Grace Park
