The focus of her ministry is based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13 where Paul teaches the importance of love just as Christ loved us.

Moreover, she is passionate about sharing the gospel with those who feel disconnected or who are unaware of God’s true presence. Often gathering people of all ages in her home to encourage embracing the Gospel, Rev. Robyn believes ‘you must meet people where they are, then nurture and guide them to see God’s true purpose’.

Monthly Reflection

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10 NRSV

Some seem to have a limited idea of God’s blessings, as if God only wanted us to bless us in small ways. They live as if there are limits to what is possible.

But the Bible gives us a completely different perspective. Jesus said He came that we might have life and have it “abundantly.” It indicates that this literally means having life “till it overflows.” This is a picture of blessings without limits!

Think about this: God wants you to have overflowing blessings! The question is, what are your expectations? What do you really believe about the Gospel? Have you placed limits on what God can do for you? Are you dominated by doubt or hindered by fear?

Fortunately, you don’t have to wonder what God would say about these matters. His Word gives you the specific answers! Just think about these truths and declare them in your life.

Jesus came “to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). This means you already have power over every form of spiritual opposition. You can live in total victory!

If you ask in faith, anything will be possible for you: “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you” (Matthew 17:20). He has given you His power and authority (Luke 9:1).

In your life, don’t place limits on God. Remember Jesus’ words: “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it” (John 14:13-14). Believe God’s promises, and expect His overwhelming blessings to flow into your life.
