Encounter Special Guest Worship Leader and Speaker Lennox Barnett

My good friend Lennox Barnett is flying to California to do an all worship night and share his story at Encounter this Friday. Here is a short excerpt from his testimony.

"I have lived a life full of miracles….now my passion and my mission is giving my giftedness back to God. I was born blind. My birthplace was Kintyre, Jamaica, a close-knit but impoverished, rural community near Kingston. Doctors at the University Hospital in Kingston diagnosed me with congenital glaucoma, a rare condition in infants. During the first 8 years of my life, the doctors at the hospital performed exploratory surgeries, and conducted research on my condition.

At the age of 8, after a typical exploratory surgery, I began to see! The physicians were baffled at their success, and to this day, are unable to understand how or why the experimental treatment worked. However, my dear grandmother had been praying since the day I was born, that I might be blessed with the gift of sight. There’s no doubt in my mind, that the unexpected success of the surgery was a direct result of my grandmother’s daily prayers.

I have been blessed by God in countless ways. My love and passion for worship, and leading with people of any age, comes from a grateful, humble heart.

Psalms 40:1-3 I waited patiently on the Lord, He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him."

I hope you can join us this Friday for this special event. We could use your help by making plans to be there and to serve. We have some key leaders out this Friday and we could use every hand possible to help make the night a success. We need help with set up before the service, cooking team, cleaning team, Encounter Kids, and information table. Please make every effort to be there and invite all your friends and family. Children and teens are welcome and they will love Lennox!

I want to make sure we pack out the house for Lennox! You are going to love his energy and spirit! He is a spirit filled worship leader that loves to encourage and build people up in their faith!

I am so fired up about this night and can’t wait to see you all there!

Be Blessed and Encouraged
