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…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….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 […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…Request For Prayer….8/26/2021

I received a call from Pastor R asking for special prayer. You will remember that two of the HOB leaders, Abed and Adel, had been shot recently while sharing Jesus with a crowd of people. Pastor R said that Abed succumbed to his injuries. A bullet had been too close to his heart and he could not be saved. As […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…1/4/2021…”Grave-robber to Child of GOD!”

In spite of all we are seeing happening in our world today, I think a good way to begin the year 2021 is with Psalm 118:24 which says, “This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Those of us who are the servants of the Most High GOD can say this with […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…10/8/2020….”Looking Back”

Another in our series as we have been looking back at God’s interventions on behalf of the House of Blessing was recorded on July 31, 2017. This is the account as it was written on July 31, 2017. Be sure not to miss Sister Sarah’s story later on in this archived update! It is also interesting to now look back […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….9/30/2020….(Reprint): “A STORY FROM MOSUL”

While Pastor R is receiving much needed continued medical treatment in Jerusalem, I am not receiving the most current news from over the border where the House of Blessing missionaries are located. I have reprinted another one of the special stories from the past, a story from March, 2017 that is well worth rereading. God has done great things in […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…9/10/2020

I received a quick call from Pastor R letting me know that, out of the approximately 2,000 House of Blessing missionaries in the field today, about 800 of them are needing to go find some temporary work in order for the basic needs of their families to be met. Many of the missionaries are separated from their families much of […]
