Straight From My Heart…
2012 has been filled with incredible opportunities and blessings for us. I have personally been able to share the Gospel in at least 250 separate ministry venues in Africa, India, and the United States. I continue to be honored and humbled at the fact that God allows me this opportunity.
I’m especially thrilled to report that God continues to open doors for us in the most unusual places, which is a constant reminder that God’s plans for us are so much bigger than our own! (see Isa.55:8-11).
As we stand ready for whatever God has in His plans for 2013, I am already excited at the possibilities. In addition to our work in Ghana, we are seriously looking at the possibility of a full-time presence in the neighboring country of Togo (and beyond)!
This is an encouragement to me especially when I pause and realize that Muslim extremists are steadily making their way into these parts of Africa. This is, and will continue to be, a battle between Light and darkness — between Good and evil — between Truth and error. Jesus is the only hope for the world.
In a rapidly spinning world we must stay firm. We must not waiver, we must not falter, we must not give in. Now is not the time for compromise. This is not the time for the weak of heart. There is no room for quitters and compromisers. It is time for the “A-players” to step up and accept the challenge. We must know our enemy and understand his tactics, while at the same time realize that we ARE the winning team! You and I are not fighting FOR victory — we are fighting FROM victory (Jesus has won the victory on the cross!)
It is my prayer that you will continue to be a part of our work. I am eternally grateful for your faithful support in sharing the Gospel. We need you on our team and the lost world is counting on us.
It is my prayer that this will be the greatest Christmas season of your life and that 2013 will be your most productive year ever in service to the King. Until Jesus returns, I remain
Yours, in the fulfilling of the Great Commission,
