MIDEAST UPDATE…9/18/2022…”God’s Love in Action”

Even though there was only one Apostle Paul, variations of his salvation story can be told by countless believers and followers of Jesus today, who at one time had declared themselves His enemies. A small portion of Paul’s lengthy testimony before King Agrippa of His encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus reads this way: 13 “…at midday, O […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…8/21/2022…”And They Spoke the Word of God with Boldness”

I would like to begin today’s update with a passage of Scripture from Acts 4. 29 “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus”, […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….8/13/2022….”Who Holds Your Tomorrow?”

There isn’t one of us who has knowledge of what our tomorrow will bring—unless of course, God gives us special knowledge. As believers, we are thankful at the end of every day for another day that has passed and we are now one day closer to Jesus’ return for His own. A personal practice of mine is to thank the […]

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 […]

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

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 3/26/2018

Today, I am taking another opportunity to reprint an update from about three years ago. The stories of the past, the past victories, as well as past trials and persecutions need to be remembered. Just as we read in the Book of Acts in the Bible, many in our present age have lost their lives for their faith in Jesus […]

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of them that bring good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, YOUR GOD REIGNS.  ISAIAH 52:7 It was only a few days ago that I received news about Pastor R’s feet and the likelihood that the toes would have to […]

WISE AS SERPENTS, HARMLESS AS DOVES

“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” Matthew 10:16 True believers and followers of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, have been given the power through God’s Spirit to deal with any situation that presents itself in our earthly life as we await His second coming.  Of this […]

URGENT PRAYER NEED…MIDEAST UPDATE 12/30/2017

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 I received an urgent email from Jerusalem this morning and a few minutes later received a phone call from Pastor R in southern Syria. The email from Jerusalem contained some photos showing the reasons […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 11/16/2017

As I was watching the news a couple days ago, reports came in about three large earthquakes; one in Japan, another in Costa Rica, and a third located on the Iraq / Iran border. This last quake was the largest of the three and registered approximately 7.3 on the richter scale. Due to the quake being relatively shallow in depth, […]
