Well, it's freezing in Pittsburgh with a few snowflakes coming down. I've been helping to decorate my
Mom's house for Christmas. We make a pretty good team, it looks pretty good!
Last Sunday I was asked to give
the sermon. I chose the subject of commitment taken from Luke 6:46-49. There seems to be a waning commitment even
in churches as false doctrine and compromise is taking place fast. Jesus is coming soon. 2 Timothy 3 and 4 speak
to this dramatically.
Tomorrow I will be traveling to the Cayman Islands where I will be visiting Elmslie
Memorial United Church. I have been scheduled to attend a youth meeting on Friday evening, a Men's Fellowship Breakfast
on Saturday morning and to give the message at the church on Sunday morning. Wednesday will find me returning to Pittsburgh.
When Christmas is over I shall be on my way back to Haiti. Please pray for the ministry there and my co-workers.
If we were truly thankful for all that God has done, We would do more praising of Jesus Christ, His Son. The angels
have no Savior who gave His life for them And yet in constant chorus they bring their praise to HIM. I know that
we're not angels; we must toil for daily bread. Must that be our main purpose and goal until we're dead? All those
things we've gathered will just be left behind And when we get to heaven not one of them we'll find. But praise
and faithful service to Jesus Christ our Lord Add up in heaven"s storehouse for the day of our reward. The
crowns that we are given we will lay at Jesus' feet; That day will be the day when our joy will be complete. So,
are we truly thankful? Do we lift our voice in praise? Christ should be the focus, our main purpose in these days. When we arrive in heaven, like the angels we will sing. Why not start this morning and our thankful praises bring?
I arrived in Dallas on Wednesday, 2 November. On Saturday, we held a Gospel Growers Committee meeting down near
Houston with Angie Brannan, Billy Proske, Mark Miles and Veronica and Jim Guerriero. It was a great time of catching
up and fellowship.
Sunday afternoon, I was the speaker at a gathering at Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church.
This meeting was also attended by some members from Jones Creek Baptist, Churchill Baptist and others. I was able to
share positive news about what the mission is doing in Haiti.
On Monday, I traveled back to Pittsburgh. The
Radio Station we help just got connected to its 300 watt transmitter doubling the area where our signal reaches. More
people will be able to hear our wonderful Haitian, Christian music and inspiring sermons which we hope will encourage believers
and bring others into the Faith.
Join with me in praising our Lord for His provision and guidance to us as we seek
to spread the Gospel in the Cote de Fer area and beyond.
Today I am headed south to Texas to attend an annual meeting of the Gospel Growers Board. Our committee
consists of Angie Brannan, Billy Proske, Mark Miles and Veronica and Jim Guerriero.
Then on Sunday, I will
be at Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church to share what is going on with the ministry in Haiti. While things go from bad
to worse in this world, many people are coming into the Kingdom of God. What part are you playing in facilitating a
soul to come out of the dark and into the Light...?
