Sunday Extra – April 9th, 2023
Jesus Defeats Death
Corey Widmer of Third Church in Richmond, Virginia, shares our Easter Sunday Extra today. Corey and Jim Singleton lead a mentoring group together. A long-time friend of Leighton Ford Ministries, we have partnered with Third Church for leadership development and governance across the years. Listen to Corey’s Easter message from 2022 entitled “Jesus Defeats Death.” May you experience the fullness of Jesus this Resurrection Sunday.
We Have Hope in Christ
Today please pray for the family of Graeme Keith. He and his wife Gloria are long-time friends of Leighton, Jeanie, and LFM. Graeme passed away on March 31, leaving a rich legacy of faith and achievement. In addition to deeply loving his family, he experienced a successful career in banking and engaged in many civic opportunities. An active member and elder at his church, he also served as Board Emeritus for Samaritan’s Purse as well as Board Emeritus for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Pray for the Keith family this week. We grieve – and rejoice -with them, thankful that we “do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope” (1 Thessalonians 4:13 NIV). We rejoice in our eternal hope, because of the life, death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
