A Gift From Us To You: Happy 2019

From all of us in The Encouragers Family Ministry (my mum, brothers and I), and from me over here at Alethea’s Mind . . .

Many years ago, my dad dedicated our family to God with the decision to christen us The Encouragers. We became a family ministry that focused on encouraging anyone the Lord brought our way, in as many ways as the Lord led us.

One of the ways we lived out this purpose was by designing yearly calendars with messages of hope and truth, giving them out for free to anyone who wanted a copy as they were available. My dad began designing these calendars in 1997, and after he passed away in 2002, his wife and children took up the responsibility to keep the ministry alive as God gave grace. With the help of my brothers, I have designed a few of them over the years and it has been one of the highlights of my years. The best part of the assignment is keeping my ears open for the message for each year, and God has faithfully kept His part of the deal by speaking expressly to us.

Many years have seen people testify about how the message in one month or the other spoke directly to their lives and circumstances. The most recent one was a call from my mum asking me to look at the message in the month of November for 2018. I walked to the kitchen where the calendar hung and read the message and almost began to cry.

You see, in the first week of the month of November 2018, my mum returned home after eighteenth months away to undergo treatment for cancer. We never knew when she would return after she left home, but God knew that she would and when, so He sent a message to us a year ahead (as I had designed the calendar for 2018 in November 2017) and only then did it all make sense.

As we stand at the precipice of 2018, looking on at 2019, my heart is led to share with everyone the message for the coming year, as the Lord has given us, The Encouragers. You might never get a printed copy of the calendar, so I’m bringing it here, to share with this community the encouragement the Lord has placed in our hearts.

You can go ahead and download the pictures and print them if you like, or save them for your reference: this is our gift to you.

So from all of us in The Encouragers Family Ministry (my mum, brothers and I), and from me over here at Alethea’s Mind, Happy 2019 – The Year To Honour The Lord!

  2. Happy New Year Tosin my good friend and to your family. The gift your family has provided for others is one that Our Heavenly Father will always remember you all for. Praising God is great and rewarding to those who bring others to him and share his wonders with them all. Love what your Dad started !!
