Grace and peace to you in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are living in exciting days for the ministry! I recently returned from one of the most productive missions trips to Syria. It was wonderful! I felt like I was back in the Book of Acts, seeing new converts come to the Lord, new churches planted, people healed, delivered and baptized! The Lord revealed Himself and did amazing things. Please look the pictures I shared at the end of this email, but for safety reason please do not post or share them.
Greetings to you in the precious Name of Jesus Christ our Brother, Friend and Lord!
I wrote in my last email to you that I would soon be going on a mission trip into Syria. By God's grace, after a long trip, I have now made it into Northern Syria working with locals to strengthen the new churches and evangelize while the doors are wide open. We are also helping in tangible ways the new and suffering believers. Will you help this mission today? We still need more financial support.
Greetings to you in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Tragedy came yesterday in the parking lot of the Crossroads Centre in Burlington, Ontario, where we rent our office and studio space. A three year old boy was found dead in a hot parked car at about 5:30 PM. Please pray for the family of this child who must be going through their worst nightmare. We know this young boy is with Jesus, but his family who remain are grief stricken and need the Lord's comfort and strength. My staff and I are so saddened and in our staff devotion and prayer time this morning, we lifted them up before God.
Grace and peace to you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Everyone these days is enjoying the springtime. It is always so good to see the renewal of green things that had seemingly died over the winter. It is a time of refreshment and reminds me that God always makes things new (Isaiah 43:19). I pray that the Lord will renew our hearts and minds to be more in His beautiful and fruitful image.
Greetings to you in the power of the Name of our Risen Lord! Trusting you had a wonderful Resurrection celebration! Ellen and I enjoyed a wonderful family time together. Our grandchildren enjoyed a fun egg-hunt and Ellen made a delicious turkey with all the trimming. We were just missing our second eldest daughter Hannah and her husband Dan, as they live 12 hours up north.
Warmest greetings to you in the majestic name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The sombre commemoration of our Lord's death on the cross and the celebration of His resurrection is very soon; in fact it will come before my next newsletter is sent to you, so here and now, let me say, have a wonderful Easter with your family! Parents and grandparents, take this special time to pass on to your children and children's children, your faith and the importance of what Christ has done for you. I pray you will have a great legacy of faith.
