Anglicans from Australia, US, England, Canada, and Africa, joined by representatives of the Coptic Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Coptic Catholic (and the Papal Nuncio), representatives of Missionary organizations, NGO’s and The Bible Society of Egypt, together with government officials and ambassadors, muslims, Christians and secular, all gathered in the Anglican Cathedral of the Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa on Aug 25th, 2012.In the welcome and the witness of this company, Grant was ordained assistant bishop for the Diocese and area bishop for the Horn of Africa. It was 7 o’clock at night ( 1 pm North American time), and the Holy Spirit overshadowed us all. The Presence of God infused the prayers of friends present and overseas. It was as if we could feel the very pleasure of God in the unity of His people. “How good it is when brothers dwell in unity... for there God has ordained the blessing”.
I had awakened the day before, with these words clearly and inexplicably in my mind, “Operation Ruin”. I figured maybe this could be a nudge, a warning to pray for protection! You think?!!!
Later that day Anna, our David’s dear girlfriend, suffered a dangerous fall from which, miraculously, she was unhurt apart from being both bruised and shaken up. Shortly after that, Grant suffered the excruciating pain of a torn leg muscle. As the Presence of God came upon Grant at his consecration, all pain disappeared, and he was completely healed.
so thankful for god's goodness, and his provision to you, through you, and for you. :)ReplyDelete
That is wonderful and breathtaking. I remembered Grant shared it with us when I was studied in Ambridge. Yes, the Horn of Africa in need a person like Grant. My brother, may the Lord, the Giver of life bless you and protect you in His work that He called you to do.ReplyDelete
