November – December 2020

Dear Friends and Partners,
“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government
will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful,
Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6 NKJV).
Writing this letter as we enter the months of November and December, we here in the United States prepare to celebrate two wonderful and significant days, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanksgiving is a day of remembering all of the blessings that God has bestowed upon us both as a nation and individually. Christmas celebrates the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As we prepare for these celebrations, we remember this wonderful praise song:
Give thanks with a grateful heart. Give thanks to the Holy One.
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son
And now let the weak say, “I am strong.”
Let the poor say, “I am rich Because of what the Lord has done for us”
(Henry Smith, 1986).
Our prayer for you is that you are blessed “exceedingly abundantly above all that we [you] ask or think, according to the power that works in us [you]…” (Ephesians 3:20 NKJV), during the coming Christmas season. We also pray that Jesus Christ will be the center of everything in your lives and that the anointing of the Holy Spirit will rest upon you as you plan for the coming New Year.
We know that this past year has been a trying time for all of us, but God has been and will continue to be faithful to each of us. We have watched His healing hand touch so many people and bring restoration when all seemed to be lost. The Psalmist gave us a tremendous word of encouragement when he wrote, “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock” (Psalm 27:5 NKJV). That ROCK upon which we are firmly placed is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Now concerning our immediate plans for ministry, we are beginning to travel in ministry again. In the past few months we have been in the states of Maine, Georgia, and Alabama. In the next few weeks, we plan to be in Illinois, Iowa and Indiana. As most of you know, we are posting a teaching video at Eugene May on Facebook and YouTube each week in addition to the twice weekly written postings on Facebook, and we have been amazed at the response. God is truly proving Himself faithful in every area.
“The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace”
(Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV).
