FROM FRED’S HEART

Only the SCRIPTURE can explain, express and encourage our lives daily!

For I am sure of this very thing, that the one who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6

As these 45+ years of frontline radical ministry have slipped by, the body, soul and spirit have endured much abuse! “Life is but a vapor” (James 4:14) The reality of hurts, wounds, disappointments, and pain are very REAL in the realm of spiritual WARFARE. (Ephesians 6:12)
With my BIG family (4 grown kids, 23 grandkids & great grandkids) and the growing number of indigenous H.I.M. Partners, there are endless
financial, legal and practical
issues daily on my heart and mind. We need your prayers and help! The amazing Board of Directors and team that Byron Whetstone and Joni Miller have assembled to carry on the organization and ministry is beyond my wildest dreams!! PRAISE THE LORD!! With such integrity, quality, guidelines and memberships, our ministry is a great place to make eternal investments!! “... Lay your treasures up in heaven...” (Matthew 6:19-21)
15It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. 16The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. 17The former preach Christ out of sel. sh ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. 18But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Philippians 1:15-18
In the last ten months I have been in five countries, 20+ churches, traveled over 20,000 miles in the US and abroad, and somehow MOVED AGAIN! Plans are already in motion to be in Nicaragua, India and Africa in the next year. My role as Minister-at-Large is keeping me busy! We believe YOUR prayers and partnership will strengthen and empower thousands that look to HIM for provisions and oversight. We juggle so much to keep magnifying the Lord in every way possible. Barb and I are super grateful for you who stand with us and HIM in

21For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 22If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! 23I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; 24but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Philippians 1:21-24
