Hi everyone,Clarkie chair

Trust you all had a good fieldays week!

Thanks for your prayer , thoughts and messages over the past couple of weeks. I am pleased to report I am recovering well from surgery, I have assumed my position on Clarkies big black chair, and he has been very attentive! He has also been employed as the “under gardener”  planting my garden now the pergola is built.. I am sure he was on his knees praying for you too!

We will be all fit and ready to head for Perth on 4th July to celebrate with MeJames and Meena Benajmin and launch BUSINESS EDGE Western Australia on July 8th!!!  Wow God, what a privilege to  encourage and pass on the anointing to another son and daughter whom God has “called” for such a time as this.

One of the values of Business Edge is “real relationships”  with others who are on the journey of marketplace ministry. Home hosted dinners have been incorporated with Conference over the past 3 years, however this year, as there is no conference, we would still like to  facilitate great friendships and realtionships over dinner! There is no better time than in mid-winter , so we propose the week of 4-9 Augustto be a week of fun, food and friendships.

To kick this off , we need hosts who would be willing to cook a 2 course family style meal for yoursleves and 4 or 6 other people (depending on the size of your table). The guests BYO drinks, and a small sweet treat to go with coffee or tea.  Make our day and contact Carrie-Anne ca@businessedge.org.nz for Bay of Plenty or Coralie coralie@businessedge.org.nz  for Waikato to offer for one night of that week ..

Hebrews 13:2″ Do not forget to extend hospitatlity to stangers for through it some have entertained angels unawares.” 

The other announcement is about some headway we are making towards our own Business Edge I-Phone App !! Easy access to all BE businesses and members… please pray for adequate funding to pull this off… ( donations sought and welcome!) What a huge marketing opportunity for all members…. more about that later too.

Clarkies Thoughts

” When you walk in your God given Spiritual authority … you will walk easily in your natural authority and know God’s favour” 

The prayer day in Tauranga was great, thank you Ryan and Carrie-Anne, you are making a difference! This was the thought God gave me that day… it really sums up HOW and WHY we do business  as our ministry calling… I want to bless each of you as you go about your daily work to the Glory of God!

During the past week or two I have touched base with many of you and sensed the feeling, it’s wet, cold and winter, along with a feeling of  tiredness. This time of the year it can be really tough to stay on top of all the needs in business and maintain staff morale at the same time.

A BIG thanks to all those who consistently pray for others and take time to call, email, txt … the feed back from those being prayed for is incredible ( Hebrews 3:3 in action)

I encourage you to be strong and purposeful as Colossians 3:12-17 & 22_25 refers to.

Business Blessings this week ” Clarkies”
