We still have sponsorship and team slots available for this year's golf tournament.  For more information go to:  fathershousefoundation.com/golf2016

We're selling raffle golf balls for the May 6th tournament! We're going to load up all the numbered golf balls onto a helicopter and DROP them onto a practice green at the golf course while WE ALL WATCH! Once they're all dropped, we're going to measure the distance to the golf balls closest to the hole. We'll announce the winners of the AWESOME prizes at the tournament.  Simply click the "Ball Droppers" image to the right for more information!

Passover-4-pic.jpg

Why is this night different from all other nights?
The four questions we ask on Passover night


On all other nights we eat leavened bread and matzah - on this night only matzah.
Because we are purging out the leaven - the sin - that resides in all of us. 

     1 Corinthians 5 - 8:  "Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know the saying, “It takes only a little hametz to leaven a whole batch of dough?” Get rid of the old hametz, so that you can be a new batch of dough, because in reality you are unleavened. For our Passover lamb, the Messiah, has been sacrificed. So let us celebrate the Seder not with leftover hametz, the hametz of wickedness and evil, but with the matzah of purity and truth."

On all other nights we eat all vegetables - on this night only bitter herbs.
Because on this night we remember how bitter life was for the children of Israel in the land of Egypt.

     Exodus 1:12 - 14:  "...the Egyptians came to dread the people of Israel and worked them relentlessly, making their lives bitter with hard labor - digging clay, making bricks, all kinds of field work..."

     1 Peter 4:12 - 14:  "Dear friends, don't regard as strange the fiery ordeal occurring among you to test you, as if something extraordinary were happening to you.  Rather, to the extend that you share the fellowship of the Messiah's sufferings, rejoice; so that you will rejoice even more when His Glory is revealed.  If you are being insulted because you bear the name of the Messiah, how blessed you are!  For the Spirit of the Glory, that is, the Spirit of God, is resting on you!"

On all  other nights we don't dip our food even once - on this night we dip twice.
Because we remind ourselves that even the most bitter circumstances can be sweetened by the hope we have in God.

     Hebrews 6:19:  "Now we have this hope as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul; a hope both sure and steadfast, and one which enters within the veil..."

     2 Corinthians 1:8b - 9:  "...the burden laid on us was so far beyond what we could bear that we even despaired of living through it.  In our hearts we felt we were under sentence of death.  However, this was to get us to rely not on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead!"

On all other nights we eat sitting or reclining - on this night we only recline.
We recline as free people - freed from the bondage of sin and death by Jesus the Messiah, our Passover Lamb.

     Romans 8:37:  "No, in all these things we are superconquerors, through the one who has loved us."

     Colossians 3:15:  "...and let the shalom which comes from the Messiah be your heart's decision-maker, for this is why you were called to be part of a single Body.  And be thankful..."

Living-Stones.jpg

From October through December 2015, 23 children were supported by Living Stones Orphanage.  Included in that number were 2 local adoptions, and 1 international adoption.  At the time of this newsletter, there are 23 children living at the orphanage - including 9 babies in the nursery!  The orphanage provides church services for these children, picnics, pool parties at the directors' home, and holiday parties.  Ken and Cris Sandberg are providing these children with as much of a family life as they are able to so that these kiddos feel special, needed, and loved.  Won't you partner with Father's House and assist our support of this precious and much needed kingdom work in Davao City, Philippines?  For more information about Living Stones  Orphanage visit their website:  http://livingstonesorphanage.org/  For more information about Father's House involvement with Living Stones, please visit:  http://fathershousefoundation.com/

In closing, Father's House wishes to express our immense gratitude for your continued support for our work – which is really God’s work.  We could not minister in the ways we minister without our faithful friends - YOU - that make this work possible.  The Lord continues to open new ministry opportunities for Father’s House both here locally and in the Land of Israel.  Won’t you partner with us in this exciting calling?  There are many ways to do just that – contact our office for more information.

We love you!  God bless each of you with His highest blessings!
