MIDEAST UPDATE….6/11/2022….”Work While it is Day, Night is Coming…”

It has been about two weeks since I wrote the last update. The deadly attack on the HOB School of Ministry about three weeks ago had left most everyone that was connected with it in shock. It was not the only attack of its kind that the House of Blessing has experienced over the years but, nonetheless, a very hard […]

URGENT MIDEAST UPDATE….5/29/2022

Seldom do I write three back-to-back updates this close together but the situation that has developed in the past week in regard to the attack on the HOB School of Ministry has brought an urgent need to bear. Without belaboring the point, as readers already know, 3 teachers and 25 male Bible students were slaughtered a few days ago as […]

SPECIAL MIDEAST UPDATE…5/26/2022…”And They Overcame Him By The Blood of the Lamb and Their Testimony”

This will be a very short update. I would like to pass on some information I just received a few hours ago. Pastor R called me earlier today, broken hearted, to let me know of an incident that he had just been made aware of. As regular readers will remember, the House of Blessing opened four Bible School classes just […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…5/23/2022…”And To All Those Afar Off”

I came across an interesting article in which the question was asked, “Is the West Missing the Harvest?”  I spent some time pondering the question. For those of us who live in the West, unless we have contact with some knowledgeable people who are involved in overseas Christian ministries, we may not even be aware how explosive the harvest of […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…5/16/2022…Every Stain of Sin Cleansed by the BLOOD

One of the most important principles of the Christian life is “forgiveness”. When the disciple Peter asked Jesus how many times he would be required to forgive someone—thinking seven times was more than generous—Jesus told him he might need to forgive a person seventy times seven! That is almost unimaginable for most of us, but God’s view on most things […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…5/7/2022…”The Fields are White”

As I opened my Bible to read this morning, this passage caught my eye. It reads like this: Thus says the LORD God of Israel: Concerning the words which you have heard—because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and against its inhabitants, and you tore your clothes and […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…4/26/2022…”God’s Amazing Grace!”

Over the years that I’ve written updates for the House of Blessing, there have been many accounts of horrific things that HOB missionaries have gone through. Thousands of these men and women would not bend from their commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ, even when facing sure and imminent death.  In the previous update, I told the story of four […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…4/19/2022…”All These Things Will They Do”

Today’s update is once again quite short as it is regarding a special call I received from Pastor R concerning an incident that happened three or four days ago. There is a Scripture in John 15 I would like to share that is applicable. 18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….4/12/2022….”Intense in Tents!”

In Luke 10, we find these words: 1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the […]
