Hebrews 6:9-11 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which you have shewed toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
Colossians 1:24-25; 2:2-3 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Messiah in my flesh for His body's sake, which is the church: 25 Wherefore I(Paul & Roger)am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God;
This is the reason: 2:2-3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Messiah; 3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Know this my loved ones that Yahuweh is working a work by your affliction and current distress not only for your good but also for all those about you. You are the called according to His purpose. REJOICE again I say REJOICE!
Halle lu YAH to our King, Yahuweh who is mercy,
