For anyone who attended the Young Sheep Training Center 1981-1985
These monthly Zoom meetings are for us who were part of Cobu's YSH house in Brooklyn NY. (1981-1985) Here we can reconnect with each other and share our experiences past and present. We can help each other to recover from some of the bad experiences we had there and remember the good experiences and rejoice in what Jesus did for us. It is my desire to make sure that each of us realize that the Jesus we learned there, that's not the way he really is. You are invited to join us, from 5-5:30 we meet and greet each other and afterwards we get into a theme. You can listen in or even share of yourself with us and for sure you will be accepted for who you are. We remain connected to each other for life just like military veterans have a connection with each other. We have experienced things together and experienced Jesus in ways no one else has. I think all of us agree that the best thing from those days is that we met each other and other brothers and sisters who love Jesus Christ!

Paul Peterson, Andre Fenty, Bernard Epp,Joan Thompson, Reggie Brewer, Kevin Brown, Steve Greene,Ann Peterson, Dawn Petrov,Owen Camp,Sandra Bloomfield-Jones, Gus Jones and Jennifer Williams-Kuhn (Anthony Williams wife)
The topic was "Peace" and everyone contributed to the conversation. Some of the main points; we all agreed that our peace comes from God. That there is no peace or fullfillment in things and in possessions. Peace is inside and Gods peace helps us to stay calm through all our trials and tribulations. Verses mentioned; Thou dost keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee. Agree with God and be at peace. Since we are justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and do not rely on your own insight. Minding the things of the Spirit is life and peace. We discussed that Peace is a fruit of the Spirit. Jus to mention a few points here.....
Our 21st zoom meeting March 19th (13 Participants)

Milton Ransom, Andre Fenty, Zue A K, Bernie Epp, Sandra Bloomfield Jones, Steve Greene,
Kevin Brown, Ann Peterson, Owen Camp, Jennifer Williams (Anthony Williams wife), Robert Hardy, Chi (Galo) Rodriguez and Paul Peterson.
Everyone participated and we were all very encouraged. Some of the scriptures we discussed; we all agreed that we are Children of God by his grace and that is the way we should look at ourselves.
1 John 3:1-3, John 1:12&13, 1 Peter 2:9&10, Lamentiations 4:2, Galatians 3:25&29, 2 Cor. 5:17
We talked about our struggles "as humans", like Peter walking on the water and taking his eyes off Jesus and sinking and then crying out "Lord save me!". That God's Grace is sufficient. Lord I believe, help my unbelief.
We touched on the subject of the body of Christ, that we are all united in Christ together, with Christ being the head.
Andre made the analogy of how others identified Peter as being with Christ before he denied him 3 times. We are heirs, everything of God also belongs to us.
Our 21st YSH zoom meeting on 4/23; (14 Participants)
John Monk, Milton Ransom, Bernie Epp, Andre Fenty, Sandra Bloomfield-Jones, Joan Thompson, Kevin Brown, Owen Camp, Robert Hardy, Aaron Trudgeon, Dawn Petrov-Armstrong, Luis Arevalo, Brandy Bloomfield,Kenny Samuel.
The theme was; The New Covenant. Everyone participated and contributed valuable things. The term Covenant was explained, we got into that our God is a Covenant God, the difference between the Old and the New Covenant, the New Covenant in the blood of Christ, that Christ opened a new and living way for us. That our sins are forgiven once and forever because of what Jesus did for us. We tied the New Covenant into John 3. We talked about a balance and that it really shows God's love for us; that the New Covenant is a better covenant, the Covenant of Promise and God all along set everything up for the New Covenant.
Some of the scriptures we went over; Matt 26:28,
Mark 14:24, Luke 22:30, 1Cor 11:25. Eph 2:12,
Hebrews 7:22, and some Old Testament verses showing the promise of the New Covenant.
Everyone was encouraged and we prayed together!

The theme was; What does it mean to be ready when Jesus come?
Everyone participated and it was a good meeting. Some of the scriptures we went over; Philippians 3:8-13, Hebrews 13:14, Matthew 6:33, 1John 2:28, Hebrews 10:19-26 We talked about laying aside all the other things, that Jesus wants us with him in Heaven more than us, that he who began a good work in us will bring it to completion. We considered Mark 13/ Luke 21 & Matthew 24; first thing Jesus said; see that no one leads you astray! And after that the continual theme of; stay awake and be on guard, to raise up our heads because our redemption is drawing near. We talked about continuing in God's grace, that it isn't of works.
Be who you are made to be (by God's Grace and Mercy) and do by faith what God has assigned for you to do!
