What a Month!!!
A Time to Celebrate
As I start this quick ministry update, I would like to say THANK YOU to all of those who made special gifts or added to their monthly partnership with us. We were so very blessed. Although our monthly Great Commission Partnership is not very good, God has been gracious though each of you and we are feeling so blessed.
As you are aware there is an enormous amount of turmoil right now going on in North Africa and the Middle East. Strange things are happening all over the region. War in Iraq, rebuilding in Israel, unsettling things in North Africa and these are just the beginning. I was suppose to travel to Israel, Lebanon and Egypt in the next month, but because of the situations, those plans have been put on hold.
The great thing is that Medhat Shehatta, my friend and brother from Egypt will be coming to California next month. I am so excited. His heart for sharing Jesus Christ is TOTALLY AMAZING. If your church would like to host a special evening or time for him to share, please let me know. Jeannine and I will be having several times for you to join us to meet him and to hear his heart. Truly he is a Man of God and he is a great friend of mine.
I am still planning on heading to Lebanon and Oman in October for planning. Then in November (yes, another birthday overseas), I will be leading a team of 6 to Turkey to share the gift of eternity. I am so thrilled.
As you read this if God is calling you to become more involved in the work of our Lord or to know more about how to become Great Commission Partners with us, please just respond to this and I would love to share with you how.
