Brief post to notify people that P.J. Smyth’s visa petition to the United States has been granted. Its likely that P.J. will move to the Washington, D.C. area in the December time frame to lead Covenant Life Church as its Senior Pastor.
” A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in.. And how many want out.”
“The land flourished because it was fed from so many sources–because it was nourished by so many cultures and traditions and peoples.“
Lyndon B Johnson
And people will come from all over the world—from east and west, north and south—to take their places in the Kingdom of God.
Luke 13:29 NLT
Recently an update on the Covenant Life Church blog was posted by Mark Mitchell. As you may know Mark Mitchell at The Wondering Eagle is affectionately referred to as the “Church Lady” of Covenant Life Church. Why you ask? You can read about that in this post here. Meanwhile I would be willing to buy Mark a drink if I could hear him say, “Coooooooooooooooooooooould it be Satan?” Okay with that said let me get into the news. On September 11, 2016 Covenant Life Church updated their blog to state that the visa petition for P.J. Smyth has been approved. The final step is for P.J. and his wife and family to be interviewed by the Consulate in Johannesburg to receive their visas. Mark Mitchell anticipates that will happen in mid-October. The earliest the Smyth family will likely arrive here in the United States is in December. With that said I look forward to watching this story at Covenant Life develop. I would recommend you read the following articles that I have written about P.J. here at The Wondering Eagle. “From CJ Mahaney to PJ Smyth at Covenant Life Church? Some Thoughts from an Outsider” ,”What is PJ Smyth’s Advance Movement? An Overview of its Doctrine, Hubs, Mission, Leadership and Finances; Also its Global Presence” and “An Open Letter to P.J. Smyth (Senior Pastor Covenant Life Church)” As always I love you guys!
