“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” Friends, the Lord continues to use your intercessory prayers and your gifts of love to this ministry, to bear much fruit for the magnification of the Savior! Many of you have faithfully stood with us, on the ‘front lines of this spiritual warfare’ in 21 different nations in this world. Our mighty Commander has employed your love, your prayers, and your financial gifts to enable this soldier to go on the offensive into enemy territory, in both the evangelism of the lost and the edification of fellow soldiers in the army of the Lord! Our hearts overflow with gratitude and love for each one of you.
Dianne and I realize these days have been very difficult for everyone. Oh how we need to pray for one another! Several of our precious co-laborers have suffered greatly during these long months of uncertainty. Some are grieving from the unexpected loss of their loved ones, others are presently in a battle with life- threatening illnesses; and some families are facing challenges with their jobs and incomes. This unprecedented time has also been difficult on many of our pastor friends and their churches. They have encountered situations which most have never had to face before! So please know, we are praying for you. As all of these circumstances encumber our lives, they are being used to make us more aware of our frailties, and prayerfully, causing us to see the answer to our great need is found in the Lord.
There is no doubt in our minds that these days are surreal! But, precious friends, we have a God who is seated on the Throne. More than ever before, we are convinced that the Lord has left us here, during these unusual and evil days, “For Such A Time As This! He has His soldiers in their needed place; and He has not left us without our Spiritual Armor. In our weaknesses, He is our Strength! In our sorrow, He is our Consolation! In our confusion and lack of understanding, He is our Wisdom! In the time of conflict and affliction, He is our Refuge and our Help. In the middle of the storms of life, He is our Peace. We can fight the good fight of Faith, because we have a Commander that is Victorious.
