Dear Faithful in Christ,
Denise & I would like to take this opportunity to say "Thank You" for your love, prayer and support.
Our hearts desire is simply to have the desires of our Heavenly Fathers heart. We pursue Him to know what is important to Him and what He desires us to do about it. What is important to Him has become a priority to us.
Denise and I know that we have been given a responsibility to reach those who are calling out to Him. He takes us out of our comfort zone and leads us to new opportunities in reaching the unreached. It is challenging as we face new obstacles but know He is with us every step of the way. We learn what works and what doesn't and have learned through our failures and successes.
Knowing His heart is the most important thing to us. On a daily basis, Denise and I are faced with people asking to help with their needs, desires, problems and opportunities. It could be overwhelming if it were not for knowing what is in the heart of God. We simply must learn to follow His peace. God's peace is the "green light" that tells us what we are to do, how He wants it done or what we are not to do. The Holy Spirit reveals the hearts desire of our heavenly Father.
Each time we share with you an opportunity to plant a new church, build an orphanage, conduct a leadership conference or the many other things, it is because we have God's peace to see it accomplished. He has shown us the fruit it will produce and we are able to share it enthusiastically with joy and excitement knowing how the Lord is going to use it.
To those of you who partner with us to fulfill the heart of God, we humbly thank you. To you who are not yet partners, but desire to make a difference in reaching the unreached, Denise and I humbly ask that you consider working along side with us.
The Scripture tells us that there are those who "go" and those who "give". It takes both to get the job done.
Opportunities to reach many lay before us. We need your faithful prayer and support to reach them. Working together, we are and will continue to make a difference in the lives of precious people who need Jesus. Our Heavenly Father continues to lead us to reach the unreached. His passion to reach them is in our hearts. We can see them being reached!
Thank you dear friends for reading this letter from our hearts to yours. It is true: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work! Thank you for your partnership with the outreaches of Grace International World Outreach.
For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
