Side by Side -- May 2016

Side by Side – Pastor John and Blanche Heidengren

Graduation! It marks the end of a long season of hard work – by both the student and their parents! Our family has two graduations this month. Katie graduates on May 8 from Wheaton College (25 miles west of Chicago) with a major in Christian Education. She will join a study tour of the Holy Lands (Israel, Turkey, Greece and Rome) until late June, and then join our family reunion in upstate New York for a week. Nicholas graduates on May 27 from Rhema Christian School in Coraopolis and will begin 9th grade at Beaver County Christian School in the fall. He enjoyed playing basketball (conference champs!) and volleyball this year, as well as winning the school “top reader” for the third year in a row.

Graduation! It marks the end of a long season of hard work. But it doesn’t end the process of learning. The Bible expects us to be lifelong learners. The word “disciple” means “learner” and Jesus calls us to “follow Him” for the purpose of learning more and more how to live our Christian life. Whether we’re in a brick-and-mortar school working on a degree or in the “school of life” (or the “school of hard knocks”) working on serving God in the world, we are still learning.

Graduation! It marks the end of one season of learning, and the beginning of a new season of learning. Pray for my daughter and son as they transition to a new season of learning, and for yourself as you continue as His disciple! What are you learning today?                                                                                                                      ~ Pastor John


 I am so excited about how God is bringing revival all across the world! I watched (on the computer as did thousands of others all around the world) on April 9th the AzusaNow gathering where Lou Engle (The Call) brought together over 75,000 Christians from all over the world in the LA Memorial Coliseum to celebrate the 110 year anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angelis. They worshiped God and cried out to Him for Revival in our day.  It was amazing! I cried and laughed and was touched deeply by the love of the Lord for me, for you, and for the lost.


I want to share with you excerpts from an article on Revival written last week by Pastor Che Ahn of HRock Church in Pasadena, California, who has been praying for this for years:
