Immanuel – God with Us. What does that look like today?

“Immanuel” – God With Us!  What Does That Look Like Today?
“For to us a child is born… and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace

there will be not end.”  

Isaiah 9: 

6-7.  The prophet Isaiah spoke this truth across 700 years of troubled history, pointing to Christmas and the birth of Jesus, the fullness of Immanuel. God is now with us!
  The questions in our day are;
  • “What will Immanuel -God with us- look like for this young man and his generation?
  • “What does ‘Of the increase of his government and peace’ look like today, and what is our role, that ‘there will be no end’?

At Meniscus, we are committed to walking with this young generation – in Africa and the Appalachians- into the fullness of forgiveness, restoration, and overcoming that Jesus paid the price for over two thousand years ago.

 

For us that has two nodes of focus; the new Mvumbi Project of holistic discipleship in South Africa, and the Appalachian School of Ministry and Missions in Boone NC. Both are built upon our decade of experience with great partners in Southern Africa and our nearly three decades of public ministry.

 

We hope you are encouraged in your walk with Jesus today, for every follower is a minister and every place is a mission field. We’d love to have you join in our work.

   Immanuel is present here and now. 2100 years after the first Christmas, Immanuel is still with us. “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” God with us.
Hoping you have a rich Christmas with Him

“Get in the Game!” Rings Through the Bush

Guys love skits; meet Potiphar & flirty 'wife!We are exhaustedly exhilarated after our first two days of the Brothers For Life camp. Just stunning to see these 36 young guys begin to light up and really begin to break free of the bondages, histories, and pressures present in their lives.
The Brothers for Life Camp is being run on the YWAM 10,000 Homes base outside White River, Mpumalanga, South Africa, set deep in a forest of eucalyptus trees. Running from 6:30 a.m. until 9::30 p.m., the camp unites the guys through recreation, psycho-social, and spiritual activities. Serious work and serious fun.
Yesterday’s theme was on the reality of a loving, constant,and personal God. Today’s focus was on developing integrity and strength, and walking with Jesus.At day’s end, seven young guys chose to accept Jesus as Lord for the first time and some twenty re-committed their life to walking with him. It was amazing to see throughout the day how the “ambient culture” of the group grew stronger, more supportive, and more light-hearted. A lightness of heart soaked through the whole camp after team member Seamon Rice encouraged all the young men to “Get Back In The Game”
