October 2022 Newsletter – This is Not the Time to Quit

Hi Friends,

Happy New Month! Welcome to the month of October! I shared this encouragement a few days ago on social media. We made it to month #10. Let us keep going and finish the year STRONG!

I will keep this short because I have some bonus sermon notes below.


This month, I am doing the Proverb-a-Day Challenge. You can still get on board! More information on the flyer below.


This month, I would like to share with you the video from my sermon on Sunday, entitled “Dependable God”. Watch/Listen and be blessed. Remember to share and subscribe.


Foundation Scripture: Job 17 (Easy) 

Supporting Scriptures: Psalm 88:3-4 (KJV), Nehemiah 8:10b (KJV), Exodus 15:2 (KJV), Isaiah 41:10 (KJV), Job 42:10-17 (NIV)

Key Take-a-ways:

  • Depend means to be able to trust and rely on. To trust something/someone and know that person will help or do what you expect them to do.
  • Job was so discouraged, he thought his life was ready to end but he depended on God.
  • Our story continues, God is not done with us yet
  • 5 Tips when we are faced with tests and trials (from James 1)
  • 1. God wants us to be joyful (v2)
  • 2. God wants us to know our faith must be tried (v3)
  • 3. God wants us to have patience (v4)
  • 4. God wants us to pray for wisdom (v5)
  • 5. God wants us to have a stable mind (v8)
  • We are now in a month with double digits. In this 10th month, expect double for all your troubles. May you get twice as much as you had before. 
  • May the Lord bless your latter years more than your former years.
  • The rest of 2022 would be more blessed that the past 9 months.
  • Though your beginning seemed small, great shall be your end; because greater is He that is in you. 
  • Depend on God. Stay close to God. Stay prayed up. 
  • We have a Dependable God. Depend on God and again I say, Depend on God


My Holding on to Hope Weekly Devotion has been an inspiration to many. Normally, a new video clip or a post is published on Monday mornings on my YouTube channel and Facebook page. I will start to post new video clips soon but in the meantime, here is one of the previous video devotions encouraging you to remain sheltered in the arms of God.


If you have not watched any of the videos from my Online Bible Study (OBS) called Bible Gleaners then you are missing out! What are you waiting for? In case you missed any of the sessions, you can watch the replays on my YouTube channel or on my Facebook page. Here is one of the videos from a study I did on “How To Study the Bible”

As usual, all the FREE PDF handout with notes from the study is available to download on my website. Also, please mark your calendars! Bible Gleaners will resume in 2023.


I do a LIVE 1-hour teaching via Zoom every quarter. My goal is to train, equip, develop and to sharpen the skills of Pastors, Ministers, Leaders, Church Workers/Volunteers, Community Leaders, Entrepreneurs, Managers, Supervisors and other interested persons.

The next workshop is scheduled for Tuesday 22nd November 2022 at 8:00 p.m. EST Caribbean Time. The topic is “Strategic Leadership” and you can register by clicking the link below. You must register to get the Zoom link, as the training will not be live on social media. Registration is quick and simple! Just fill in your name, email address, submit and you are good to go!

Registration Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0ucOyqqTMpH9wuY8iBIsNUn80AgV44dBTN

In addition, I created a program for persons who might have missed workshops that I did in the past. I am now offering those workshops on a one-on-one basis or to teams. More information is on the flyer below.
