Sheryl Giesbrecht’s Mission Statement:
To use my enthusiastic, practical and motivating communication skills to share the truth and hope of God’s word to edify, encourage, exhort and inspire Christ-followers to believe God for wholeness.
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captivity and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour.” Isaiah 61: 1- 3

Thank you for your prayers and guiding me towards healing through my relationship with Jesus. —Patti

“They will rebuild ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. V 7 “Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs.” Isaiah 61:4 & 7
“Declare His glory among the nations, his marvellous deeds among all peoples.” Psalm 96:3
“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not whither. Whatever he does prospers.” Psalm 1:1-3
