Hey There Axis,

I’ve been hearing from many families at Axis who’ve taken up the Ten-Week Tithing Challenge!  Recall that on 15 October, I challenged everyone to “test God [for ten weeks] and see if He wouldn’t open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing upon you that you could not contain” [Malachi 3:10].  Also, recall that I said, “If you’re financial situation is not better at the end of the ten-week challenge, please let me know and I will personally give you your money back.”  


With that idea in mind, I would like to hear [at four weeks into the challenge] how you are going with it.  Have you taken up the challenge?  Have you felt blessed to tithe?  Have you decided to give above and beyond tithe?  Have you seen God pour out His blessing upon you as a result of your decision?  In what ways?  Please send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  I’d like to hear some of your stories.  By the way, you’ll hear a powerful giving story this week when you come to Axis.  Come and hear how God moved in a family’s life when they decided to honour God with their giving!


Also, please come and support your founding pastor, Troy Beer as he shares his heart with us this week.  I will be on a short holiday trip next week in Malaysia.  Then I’m back on 19 November to finish The Blessed Life message series.  Then I take an extended holiday to the States to see my family for Thanksgiving and an early Christmas.  I SO appreciate your prayers as I travel.


Speaking of prayers, our Pastors’ Prayer Partners ministry is still looking for volunteers to pray.  Please contact Ross or Carla Holmes (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to pick a day and a staff member or board team for which to pray.  We NEED your prayer cover Church!  Be blessed and as always...

Onward & upward,
Pastor Joel
