ALISON WHEELER:

We remember with great affection Alison Wheeler. A much loved and gracious servant of the Lord who served faithfully here in Llanelli for many years. Alison came first of all to Llanelli with ‘Horizons’ but soon felt called to serve our community which she did so faithfully for all of her remaining years. Victoria Road Methodist Church was to become her life’s work. She lived just over the bridge from the chapel in High Street and her love and devotion to Victoria Road brought new life to the church. She proclaimed in word and deed her love of Christ Those of us in Ministry in Llanelli found in her good friend. She supported inter church work and from the ‘World day of prayer’, ‘Christian Aid’ to new innovations of worship and service Alison was always there. I could hardly believe she was 88 when she passed to glory. ‘Well done good and faithful servant’

 

FROM DAVID:

My study Bible has been at my side for all the years of my Ministry. Given to me when I began college back in 1986 it has been my source of study and as I’ve endeavoured to put together messages which I felt God has led me to give. In recent months it has been even more at my side as we’ve shared over the phone for our Bible studies. Now the pages have become loose and some I have had to retrieve when they’ve fallen to the floor. The inside pages are a little cramped and the time has come for it to be replaced. As I put it on my bookshelf and replaced it with my new Bible, I did feel a real sense of gratitude for what this Bible has meant to me.

My new Bible is an exact replacement of the version I had before. Someone said that the more you read the Bible the more you love its author. I’m sure we’d all say Amen to that! None of us know what the future holds and along the way we need to be sure that God’s love will sustains and see us through.

The Bible is the source of this knowledge and instils within us hope and certainty that indeed we have Father in heaven who loves us and who in Christ seeks to save and redeem us to himself. Charles Haddon Spurgeon, one said that “Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years” As we grow in faith we hold on even more to the promises of Scripture. From Genesis to Revelation – God’s wonderful promises already fulfilled and those yet to be.

Most of us have our favourite verses, I have many, but the final promise affirming the truth of the incarnation and the certain hope of the Christian was revealed to the Apostle John….
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’” ~ Revelation 21:3-4.

When we read and believe the Bible we are standing on the promises of God.

With love in Christ,
