MIDEAST UPDATE….8/2/2022….”Whether I Live or Die…”

I thought of a couple passages of Scripture as I prepared to write this short update. The first is found in Psalm 27: The LORD is my light and my salvation: Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…7/27/2022…”GOD IS GOOD!”

As we come to the end of July, 2022, the situation for inhabitants of northern Syria—especially the refugees, is becoming increasingly difficult again. Turkey’s Erdogan has pushed for several years to establish and enforce a 30 km “buffer zone” just below Turkey’s border with Syria. Over the past 11 years of the Syrian civil war, Turkey has often sent military […]

SPECIAL MIDEAST UPDATE…7/12/2022

This morning’s update is a very short one to let readers know of a couple new developments on the front lines with the House of Blessing missionaries. As you know, the emphasis on evangelism during the observance of the Muslim Eid al-Adha was very successful this year again. The miracle of the blind man being being opened before the eyes of […]

THE ‘PREEMINENCE’ of JESUS CHRIST…..Colossians 1:12-23

Who is Jesus Christ? Why is it that after 2,000 years of history having passed, He is still the central figure of all history? Was He merely a prophet as some claim? Was He just a historical influential philosopher, one of many? Or was He one among the many religious leaders we find listed in our history books? Was He […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…7/3/2022….”How Amazing is our GOD!”

Considering the size of the series of miracles in the last few weeks, including today’s addition, this update will be rather short. The reason for the brevity of today’s update is because the Muslim, Eid al-Adha, a time of special evangelism by the House of Blessing missionaries is only days away and I’d like you to know what has happened […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…6/27/2022…”Keep Looking Up!!”

In the previous update, I made mention of the fact that one of Islam’s most important feast days is coming up early in the month of July. The yearly Hajj begins July 7 and continues through July 12. The Eid al-Adha feast is celebrated in the last three days, ending on the 12th. I explained the significance of the feast […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….6/23/2022….”The Good News!”

Maybe it is because I am now an old guy, but it seems like time is flying by faster every day! Here we are, nearly at the end of June, 2022. The House of Blessing is already preparing for its evangelism effort during the time leading up to and during the yearly Muslim Hajj. Officially, the Hajj begins July 7 […]

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 […]
