#224 – Ember Days

From the earliest days of the Christian Church, periods have been set aside for a “joyful fast” in remembrance of the gifts of God. Not only would these days increase Christian devotion through prayer and fasting, they would also have a significant influence on Japanese cuisine.

Ember Days for 2010:
February 24, 26, and 27 (the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday after the First Sunday in Lent)
May 26, 28, and 29 (the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday after the Feast of Pentecost)
September 15, 17, and 18 (the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday after Holy Cross Day)
December 15, 17, and 18 (the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday after December 13)

    Dear Pastor,
    Greetings from Pakistan, Asia!
    My name is Nosheen Victoria from Pakistan. I have been visiting your website for last year. It had been a good spiritual experience to visit your website. Your website helped me get conviction in my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I am so much glad to share that this is the firs time the knowledge and information in the Scripture has touched my heart, because all what I had been listening was either superficial or had no Biblical Background. I suppose that people study and teach the Word of God just as a mere reading from it, and not profoundly.
    The way you are preaching the word of God has touched my heart and purified my soul. I am moved to share the website with my friends and the relatives and the loved ones. I have also asked my friends to share the website with their loved ones, so the Scripture may be shared with any many people as is possible. I will be glad if these teachings are available in Urdu, Punjabi and Sindhi for the people of Sub-Continent, who really need to learn from the Word of God, and which make the major part of the world. I am a daily visitor to the website. I hope that it would be good idea to have the new Urdu or Punjabi sermons on the website.
    And if you have less infrastructure to promote the studies and the teachings in Urdu and Punjabi language, you may know that I would love to offer my services for the Lord in this translation ministry. I assure that I will come up to you expectation in the service of the translation ministry and will accomplish things: Translation, Typing, Proof Checking, Typesetting, Printing, Recordings.
    You may let me share with me whatever the Lord moves you to do and accomplish for the people of Asia.
    May God bless you!
    In Christ,
    Nosheen Victoria
