Too often we want to make things more difficult than they need to be. Each day I am reminded that God will always honor faithfulness. Thus far our team here (through Wednesday noon) has shared the Gospel in 75 venues, to a total audience of 17,349 individuals! Each day we all do the same thing over and over again. When we are tempted to change the message or the method we just remember to Keep it Simple …
Sometimes we are in schools where there are lots and lots of children. Some people will say,
“Those little children do not know what you are talking about!” to which I reply with Jesus’ words,
“Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven
belongs to those who are like these children.”
—Matthew 19:14 NLT
These little ones often appear to wander around in despair and desperate hopelessness, and the message of the love of God is a warm welcome in their lives. Only eternity will reveal how many truly receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Those of us here are committed to remaining faithful to the Word of God and sharing His Word with all who will hear. While it is not our responsibility for their hearing, it is our’s to tell them of God’s undeniable love.
Each day we are given the opportunity to share in many diverse places. Sometime we are in buildings, sometime in front of a school, and at other times under the trees. Regardless, people seem to clamoring to hear the message. We are all extremely grateful for the opportunity God gives us to share His love with a lost and dying world. We just have to remember to “Keep it simple …”
I have blessed and to have partners like Jeff Andler and Mark Chase to share in this journey of faith with me.
Ofttimes we are given the chance to share with people of different religions. We do not change the message, for the Word of God is forever settled in Heaven! Without at doubt we continue to watch God’s faithfulness to Himself be revealed in our presence.
The national team here is doing a wonderful job in adapting and overcoming with the challenges we face everyday. These choice servants of the Lord certainly make our labors more smooth.
Thank you so much for continuing to pray for us all. Please pray for the 12,000+ who have indicated their decisions to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior so far on this project. Thank you for helping is provide the Scriptures with them in each place. It is true that we are here for only a little while, but the Word of God will be with them always. You are all making difference in the Kingdom of God. For the team …
