Tree of Life

Just in case there is any confusion let us be clear:

Tree of Life meets on Sundays at 10am at Macassar High school and is lead by Pastor Dean.

There is no other church in Macassar named Tree of Life!

We had another awesome time in God's presence this morning!

There is so much to say about this morning but we'll leave it to Paula and Shadie to sum it up for us...

Paula wrote this about it on Facebook: "Just love, love, love the church! God gloriously presenced Himself amongst us this morning in worship and as our faith and hunger increased so did His anointing! Awesome to see salvations, healings, prophetic words, commissionings and so much more!"

In the words of a visitor, "I see God is among you".

While Shaddie, our guest speaker had this to say: "Awesome time @ Tree of Life in Macassar! 4 Salvations, prophetic words and lots of prayers for healing! This is the gospel of Jesus Christ.".

Salvations, healings, prophecy, prayer and the word preached solidly, what more can one expect from a meeting of the saints?

Amazing Testimony

Recently one of our members underwent a major heart operation which was a great success.

Sadly there were financial complications which left the family with a bill of R26,413.50 which is a huge amount of debt.

There was simply no way our pastor could afford to pay this debt and none of our leaders were able to either so it really was a case of seeking God and trusting him.

As a church we've been praying specifically for this debt to be written off, though humanly speaking we couldn't see how this would happen.

However, our God is a great big God and his faithfulness knows no bounds!

Last week the family received this letter telling them in Afrikaans that the outstanding balance has been written off.

God is awesome!

Oom Paul

Dean used this video at Uncle Paul's celebration funeral on Saturday to talk about the man and the confidence he had in life.

Uncle Paul was a man who knew the truth of Psalm 3:3, the Lord was his shield and held his head up high. He wasn't an arrogant man, rather, he was a man of simple faith who simply loved Jesus.

Dean also spoke about Uncle Paul from Psalm 23, particularly verse 4: "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." Uncle Paul knew what this meant and his faith was his staff.  As Christians we're often accused of using our religion as a crutch, but Psalm 23 speaks of our faith in a far more majestic way. A crutch robs a man of his dignity. A staff gives a man power and strength to overcome obstacles in life. This is why mountain climbers and serious walkers carry them. Our faith in Jesus is not a crutch but a staff that brings strength, power and purpose!

Uncle Paul - Slideshow

It was with sadness and joy that we celebrated the life of Uncle Paul on Saturday.

We're sad that we'll never again get to sit at his feet and learn from his wisdom, but we're rejoicing in the fact that he was a man who knew Jesus and ran a good race for the gospel. 

Uncle Paul finshed strongly and will remain a great role model for many of us.

This video was shown at his thanksgiving funeral on Saturday 19th July 2014.

Please note that Uncle Paul's funeral will begin at 8.30am at Macassar High School Hall and not at the family home.

We will be moving to the graveside at 10am sharp and Tree of Life will provide some transport.
