From Fred’s Heart

Most people understand the idea of “fox hole” religion. When things unexpectedly get tough and you’re in a life and death situation, suddenly you get spiritual and begin to pray!! It’s better late than never. When I was 20 years old and in the Army, the Lord called me out of darkness into His marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9) Since those early days I have had key life verses that have kept me anchored and secure. Contrary to popular opinion, I believe these Scriptures are absolute truth, universal and apply to every person. 2 Peter 2:8 reminds us that Lot, living in the midst of a perverted culture, was tormented/upset daily in his own heart. Do you ever feel upset in our crazy world? I am so aware that ...”all our righteousness is filthy rags” in the presence of God, (Isaiah 64:6) but still the Holy Spirit convicts us and reveals to us the moral devastation and destruction all around us today. It’s shocking but not new. Jeremiah wept. Jesus wept. Paul wept. Many weep. Tears are a ‘language’ that God understands. (Psalms 56:8-9) Eternity is always our perspective. HIM continues to express God’s heart and love in so many ways. It is impossible to put all the stories and statistics of our influence in this short letter, but God knows. Once again I would humbly challenge you to be involved with us. Begin by specifically and regularly PRAYING for our team and staff. We meet in our office every Wednesday morning - to seek God‘s face and pray for you, partners, staff and the world. We are flooded with so many requests and needs nearly every day, that only prayer to our living God can sustain us. Thank you for your help. My role as Minister-at-Large for HIM led me to devote four weeks on the road. I was able to reconnect with friends and colleagues, meet new people, and share the Gospel and the vision of HIM. Thanks to all who provided hospitality and sweet fellowship along the way. Barb and I have been serving the Lord, in full time ministry for over 46 years. Thanks especially to all who are part of our personal prayer/support team. PRAISE THE LORD!!
