MIDEAST UPDATE….1/14/2023….”Trusting God In All Things”

Today’s update is more in the form of a prayer request and so won’t be long. I received a call from Pastor R and need to pass on the information he related to me.  Many of us around the world have been experiencing uncommon weather patterns. It is common to have hot and cold weather in their seasons but something […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…12/12/2022…”In The Fullness of Time”

It seems every year goes by a bit faster than the one before. I am having a hard time getting my head around the fact that we are only days from the end of 2022. Amazing! But, here we are. One thing that gives us great hope is the fact that the Lord has brought us that much closer to […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…12/1/2022…The Harvest Fields are Ripe!”

Today’s Mideast Update will be a short one but Pastor R has asked special prayer for the HOB missionaries, particularly in the northern areas up against the Turkish border. Many of you may not be aware but Turkey’s President Erdogan has indicated his intent to begin the ground phase of Operation Claw-Sword. He wants to clear the southern borders of […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…11/22/2022…”And They Shall Lay Hands on the Sick…”

Pastor R called me the other day and shared details of another extraordinary story for me to share with you. Just before I do, I would like to refer to a passage written by the prophet Ezekiel. He described a most extraordinary vision; he saw cherubim, the Throne of GOD, and saw a “MAN” which he did his best to […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….11/17/2022….”And They Realized They Had Been With Jesus!”

A passage of Scripture I have referred to on occasion is found in Acts 4 when Peter and John were arrested by the religious authorities. The passage below will connect directly to today’s House of Blessing Update and also to each one of us as believers and followers of Jesus Christ, our Messiah. 1 Now as they spoke to the […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…11/3/2022…”And These Signs Will Follow Those That Believe…”

 As I begin today’s Update, I would like to draw your attention to a passage in Isaiah: 60 Arise, My people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. 61 Darkness as black as night shall cover all the peoples of the earth, but the glory of the […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…10/27/2022…”Through the Wilderness to the Promised Land”

  Just before the actual Update for this week, I’d like to share a few thoughts in introduction: All one needs to do to realize our world is facing a convergence of multiple crises like never before in man’s history is to open our eyes. Many in the West would rather close their eyes to what’s happening all over the […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….10/10/2022….”Through the Wilderness”

One of my many favorite passages of Scripture is found in Hebrews 10:23: 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….10/3/2022….”A Priceless Treasure”

I have had the opportunity to speak with Pastor R several times in the last few days. He told me about a new challenge being faced in Syria; cholera. To be clear, cholera has been faced before in the Mideast, and the House of Blessing missionaries have had to deal with its effects before. This however is the first time […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…9/29/2022…” And They Loved Not Their Lives Unto The Death”

I have been on a trip for a few days and although it will be a rather short update, it will be my attempt to catch up, at least a little bit. In light of the world news in the last couple days, with the war rhetoric becoming increasingly ominous, many are wondering how long until something really serious begins […]
