As believers in Jesus and His message to the world, we have all learned how important The Great Commission is. For some people it is a very distinct road they travel in order to fulfill this command. For others, fulfilling this commission is not as obvious. Many of us don’t feel that our personal lives are all that remarkable but […]
MIDEAST UPDATE…11/22/2021….”A Time for Genuine Thanksgiving”
I have referred many times to the persecution the true Church of Jesus Christ has endured for the past 2,000 years. And it will continue until our Messiah-King comes and takes over the rule of this fallen world. Statistics show that more Christians have been martyred in the last 100 years than in the first 1,900 years since the first […]
Below is a ‘word for word’ reprint of an article written by Gary, one of the founders of the excellent website, “UNSEALED”. I found it to have many reminders of why we as believers have much to be encouraged about at this late hour. It is a perfect time to REMEMBER what the Word of God has told us about […]
MIDEAST UPDATE..11/10/2021..Whether I Live or Die, It’s For Christ”
Throughout church history, the message of the crucifixion of Christ and His subsequent resurrection, has been both a source of great joy for multitudes around the world who have received God’s free gift of forgiveness of sin, but also of 2,000 years of persecution from those who reject Jesus Christ as the true Savior of mankind. Today’s Mideast Update includes […]
MIDEAST UPDATE….11/2/2021….The Goodness of God!
During the years that I’ve been writing the Mideast Updates for the House of Blessing, there have been hundreds of stories with news from the front lines of the ministry. Many of the stories have been hard to read, especially coupled with some of the photos that accompanied the stories. Other news told of the manifold blessings provided by our […]
MIDEAST UPDATE…10/20/2021…”Trusting Him to the Very End!”
In today’s update, as is the case so often, I have both good news and some that is a bit hard to take. If you’ll remember, my last update was quite short because I was on an out of state trip at the time that I received Pastor R’s call. I received another call while still on the road […]
MIDEAST UPDATE 10/13/2021 The KING is Coming!
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created. Revelation 4:11 …Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. Psalm 2:12 Presently, I am out of state, and at the moment that Pastor R called me this last time, I had […]
MIDEAST UPDATE…9/28/2021…”Showers of Blessing!”
I received a short call from Pastor R this week with an exciting report to share. Over the last 9- ½ years, I have had the privilege of passing on first hand reports of the many ways in which the Lord has intervened in the situations faced by HOB missionaries. What has been unfolding in the past days is truly […]
MIDEAST UPDATE….9/15/2021….TIME IS SHORT!
As we view our world today and the convergence of prophetic events, it is quite clear that things will never be “normal” again. All of the things Jesus warned us about in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 are currently unfolding exponentially. The evidence shows that the groundwork for the time of John the Revelator’s Apocalypse, has already been […]
MIDEAST UPDATE…9/1/2021…”Our GOD Does Not Miss A Thing!”
The first thing I would like to do in today’s update is to thank every one of you who prayed for our brother, Adel. Pastor R called to tell me that the Lord has touched him and he is mending quickly and doing much better! We praise God for His mercy. I have a little story to pass on today […]
