United 2024 theme 


Praise the Lord  ETX MOP! On behalf of the East Texas Messengers of Peace, we greet you in the name of Jesus Christ. As we embark on a new season and a new year, I believe God is calling us to a new level of UNITY. Over the course of many years, we have seen the enemy attempt to bring division and disagreement within the Church, but the time has come for us to unite. 1 Corinthians 1:10 Says “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” This year I believe God is calling us to be UNITED. As the church of the Lord, we need to be reminded that WE are the body of Christ. More than ever before, we need to encourage one another, lift one another up, and be there for one another and as Ecc 4:9-10 says “two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.” For a body of Christ that is United will always be stronger. We encourage you to unite with us so that we can witness this in our district, churches and MOP. We pray fresh strength, anointing, and passion over every single one of you and may the Lord use you for his kingdom and for his glory. May the Lord bless you and keep you! God bless you all! - Angel Mendez
