How the Lord Used us in November 2017
11/27/2017 1:49:00 PM by: Don

Hello Brothers and Sisters!

We trust you had a blessed Thanksgiving with family and/or friends.  Cathy and I were at home alone for the holiday this year.  We were blessed to visit with an old friend and coworker from our time serving the Lord at Family Life, who recently moved into the mountains of Western NC, just an hour and a half from our home in East TN.  We had a great time enjoying her cooking and fellowshipping with her and some of her family.

As November typically starts one of our slowest times of the year, which generally continues until after the first of the year, we only had 2 MAD Live Events in November.  We were blessed to see 6 more people surrender their lives to Christ in repentance and faith at our 2 Live Events!  Praise the Lord!

We have our off road Gospels of John at 12 different locations in TN.  Each location was initially stocked with 30 Gospels and we praise God that we have had to replenish the supplies in a number of these locations!  People are taking them and God’s Word will not return void!

I attended a monthly Pastors’ Roundtable in Johnson City, TN.  It looks like we may be blessed with 1-3 MAD Live Events from this group.

ULTIMATE ADVENTURE TRIP

If you’re interested in taking the vacation/adventure trip of a lifetime to Utah, we are currently taking reservations and deposits for our June 28th - July 7th trip.  We need at least 12 people to come to be able to hold the trip.  If you are interested, there is more information on our website and we need to hear from YOU ASAP!

WALK THRU THE BIBLE LANDS (BIBLICAL TOUR OF ISRAEL)

For the first time, Walk thru the Bible is hosting a number of Holy Land Tours next year.  Hopefully you are reading your Bible and praying daily.  Think of how much more life change can happen when you spend eight days with trained experts and tour guides in the land where it all took place?  As a Walk thru the Bible National Instructor, I have the opportunity to go for free if we can get 10 people to commit to go on the trip scheduled for August 31st to September 9th.  If we get 20 people to go, Cathy would be able to go for free as well.  That is about the only way that we’d be able to make a trip like this.  More information can be found at the Walk thru the Bible website.  It is critical that you let me know if you plan on going on THE TRIP so we can keep track of how many are going.

FINANCES

As you can see from the schedule, this is one of our slow times of year, so we have fewer love offerings to rely on.  We praise God for His faithfulness and blessings on our ministry over the past nine years, even though our regular support has not been 100%. He has kept us alive and serving Him full time through the love offerings. Would you seek the Lord in prayer asking Him if you should begin a monthly partnership with us to continue to build the Kingdom?  Thanks…that’s all we can ask.

PRAYER REQUESTS

- 2018 Schedule - As you can see from the schedule, we have MANY open dates in 2018 that we hope and pray to fill.  I have spent hours and days on the phone and almost never have my calls returned.  I know this is not unique to me.  It seems like every organization that is trying to get into churches experience the same lack of response.  Please pray for the Lord to go before us and open doors to fill the schedule.

- In September, we did our first MAD Live Event in partnership with “The Journey FM”, Liberty University’s Christian radio station in Lynchburg, VA.  They committed to host another one with us in their Roanoke, VA market in February.  As of today, we don’t have a church that will host this Live Event.  Would you please pray that God will open the doors for us to get a church to host the event?


- We have been blessed to have a Sister in the Lord translate our MAD Live Event into Spanish.  We are in need of someone to present the MAD Live Event in Spanish speaking churches.  Would you pray for God to bring us someone who could do this as we seek to expand the ministry?


- Thank you for your prayers regarding our finances.  We were contacted by the head of the Christian Foundation that had blessed us with a large financial grant 3 years ago.  He blessed us again by renewing the grant for another 3 years!  Wow!  We are still praising God for this!  That puts our regular support back up to 67%.  Please pray that this grows this coming year to get us closer to 100%.


- Please pray for the Lord’s guidance and wisdom as our Board of Directors meets next month.

Love in Christ,

Cathy and Don
