A Message from Gino Vaccaro 


Dear Friends,


Thank you for the wonderful emails and notes that you have been writing since the Ministries of Pastoral Care School in July.  It is such a blessing to hear of the profound and healing way God ministered so deeply to each of us.  We are grateful to Him Whose love has no bounds and Whose faithfulness never fails.  My morning prayers are for the healing to continue long into the year as we walk out what God has so graciously done on our behalf.  Thank you too for those of you who shared with me your hearts' desires.  May God grant those precious and beautiful longings as we present them to Him so humbly and honestly.  Praise Father, Son and Holy Spirit all Three in One.      


It did feel good to return to my children and put our hands back in the dirt while gardening together upon arriving home from the mountain top.  It was a blessing to know that we had been with our God and that He remains with us and within us.  Another lives in me!  I remember with great fondness the loving unity we shared in the Holy Spirit even though we came together from all over the world.  It is a foretaste of what is to come, the ultimate reality of being with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forever and ever.  It was especially touching to see how the Spirit so freely moved as we repented from our broken ways of relating to women and men.  The image of men and women forgiving, loving and embracing one another will remain a powerful symbol of hope and healing.


Many of you have been asking when the next conference at Wheaton will be.  While we have not confirmed the dates of our next Ministries of Pastoral Care School in Wheaton, we have tentatively set the dates for Monday, June 25, 2012 through Saturday, June 30, 2012.  Please pray for us as we seek to obey God in every aspect of His ministry through MPCS.  He is our all in all, and without His guidance and grace we have nothing, but with Him we have everything.


We pray to You Oh loving Father in Jesus' name and by the power and grace of Your Holy Spirit.  Thank You, Oh most Holy and Loving God, for Your tender mercies and powerful love.  You are extravagant on our behalf.  May we, Oh Lord, in love and humility live out that to which You have called us.  May we breathe in Your Holy Spirit and breathe out our fallen selves each day.  May You grant us the deep desire and wholehearted courage to obey You in all things and at all times.  May Your Kingdom come and Your Will be done.






Blessings and Love in Christ Jesus,


Gino Vaccaro
