Well, I don’t know what happened to this month but it is almost gone and I haven’t written a prayer letter for July. First off, Marlene and I are planning a vacation back to Indiana and Kentucky. In Indianapolis, Indiana we are going to attend the Annual Convention of the Gideons. Then after that, off to Kentucky and see the Ark Encounter along with the Creation Museum. We are looking forward to all of this. On the way home, in North Dakota, we would like to visit with our Granddaughter and Great Granddaughter. The Lord has been good to us and we are thankful for the many answers to prayer!
On the website Bible-Christian.org, we have been getting more ‘traffic,’ even some on the ‘All News.”
People are accessing the ‘Question and Answer’ section, here is an example:
” I have done prostitution and I did it for like 2 or 3 months. I stopped for my boyfriend, I was hurting. I didn’t like to see my boyfriend hurt, I told him what I was doing and he told me he doesn’t care he loves me so, I stopped to be with him, and I never did it again. I just turned 15 and I’ve done drugs and alcohol since I moved from — to —- I was influenced by people to do it, but it was my choice to do it and my mistake.
I asked for forgiveness after I woke up crying of being judged by God and I was falling down to hell, I was starting to feel heat and pain and then I woke up scared and feeling to wanting to cry… I have a friend, she showed me God and ever since I moved I changed. [However] now I have distanced myself from Him. I feel alone. I feel disgusted in myself. I don’t want to go to hell…
I’ve never been baptized.
As a Christian I was going to, but I’m baptized as Catholic , what can I do? I need help and sometimes I have a voice in my head to kill myself …. I need help when I’m feeling depressed or think about [the] prostitution I’ve done, and how it hurt other people around me. I use to get beaten by my dad. He use to drink a lot and hit my mom, I was also touched since I was 5 by my cousin, I just don’t know what to do, please help me!” Pray for this person please!
Please pray for Gabriel and the World Prayer Center Academy in Kenya, Africa. They have something like 100 children with six teachers in the Christian school. To be honest with you, there are very few people who help us with this wonderful ministry. I think it is easier for people to see a need right here at home, to help this person, when sometimes these could help themselves.
The students in Kenya are in great need of your support. I am not asking for money for myself or for them. I just want us to pray about these needs, and if God so leads you to help them, then go to our web page about us, and you will see more information on how to give.
” Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
In Christian love,
