Greetings in the name of Jesus,
As I have stated in the enclosed volume thirty-five (35) of As I See It, this is the most wonderful time of the year for Christians. All of our hope lies within the Resurrection.
After more than a month of everyone telling us that our computer was dead, a Christian man referred to us by David Parrish has completely restored it and Cindy’s nervous breakdown is now on hold! David is one of the missionaries we continue to help support. He is a man of God, evangelist, and a one-on-one mentor of many young Christians. Through his Anchor Ministries and service as president of ISTL, David literally goes all over the world proclaiming the Resurrection.
Brother Gene Trulock has set a hopeful and tentative date of May 17 for the mission trip to Guaymas, Mexico. I sadly say tentative and hopeful because we have yet to receive the funding to begin with this one of seven projects that we have been blessed with in the frontiers of Mexico. Pastor Lynn Hurley and Brother Art Shoemaker will be traveling with Gene. Gene desperately needs financial support for this project. He also would welcome more team members.
Pastor Henry Miller is going to Reynosa, Mexico with a trailer load of kitchen and other supplies for the Reynosa feeding program. This trip is established for June 17-24. Henry is driving and has room for two more people. We have two Christians from Virginia flying in for this trip. My sister, Sandra Griffin, and I will be joining this group during the week of their visit. I am extremely excited about this particular trip and the time we will share with Adamina and Daniel. Their ministry has grown from a Lifeline project and a building of $5000.00, with a seating capability of approximately fifty members, to an extremely large church serving an even larger sector of the poverty area in which it is located.
As I have stated many times, the most difficult part of my ministry is raising funds. It is difficult for all ministries and particularly in these economic times. This being said, may I clearly state: whether you can, have, or will support us financially has absolutely no bearing on our relationship with you. We fully understand the difficult times our senior supporters are experiencing. No one will ever be removed from our mailing list because of their lack of financial support. Lifeline actually operates by the faithful $15-$25 monthly supporters. If you can not assist us financially, we are more than happy and blessed to have your prayers! Prayer is our most precious resource. May God continue to bless you as I remain ……
in His service
