H.O.B. PRAYER UPDATE 12 MAY 2015
A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR R*****
No one has greater love than to lay down
his own life for his friends.
Dear Beloved Friends,
Thank you for your love and support. Your prayers have opened the windows of heaven, and I praise God His resurrection power has raised me from the dead. To know that I am not fighting this battle alone, but you–the army of God–are with me, surrounding me with your love and prayers. I want to thank each one of you. How dear you are to my heart that you would care so much to intercede on my behalf.
I am also full of thanksgiving and love for the three men who gave their lives to protect me. When the bomb hit, they covered me with their bodies to shield me from death. To see them give their lives in order for me to live: what love! what faith! There are no words to describe men like that–they are heroes, angels of God. Whenever I think of them, tears flow from my eyes. I will always remember them and take care of their families for as long as I live.
There is no love greater than to lay down your own life for your friends. I give God thanks–I know they are with Jesus Who gave His life for them. He is their Shield and their Protection throughout eternity.
Please pray for the war to end in Syria and Iraq and for the safety of the H.O.B. missionaries and Widow Sisterhood. In the midst of the deep darkness and destruction, God’s Word is alive and they are winning souls every day for His kingdom. God is good and He is taking care of His beloved ones. They are all doing well and will not allow the enemy to bring defeat to this great move of God in the Middle East. We must speed on while the door to salvation is open–more wheat, more oil to feed the hungry, and more Bibles to disciple the new believers.
God spared my life for great and mighty things, and I am alive to serve Him. I am stronger than ever, and I will continue to be obedient. He has chosen me–He has chosen you–to release ourselves 100% for such a time as this.
Thank you again for your love. The windows of heaven are truly open because of your prayers.
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.
Your servant R*****
