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….9/8/2022….”DOOR TO THE ARK IS STILL OPEN”

Many Christ-followers today are asking the question: “How long O Lord?” Those who have been watching, have seen the signs of our Messiah’s return increase in number and intensity. Some days our faith is strong, other days, not so much. All of us are susceptible to getting discouraged or despondent at times, but we don’t need to stay in that […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…9/1/2022…”When You See These Things Beginning, LOOK UP!”

Notice these words Jesus said to His disciples, including all of us who are His followers today: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Matthew 16:33 There is a growing number of people everywhere realizing that […]

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….8/2/2022….”Whether I Live or Die…”

I thought of a couple passages of Scripture as I prepared to write this short update. The first is found in Psalm 27: The LORD is my light and my salvation: Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, […]

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…7/3/2022….”How Amazing is our GOD!”

Considering the size of the series of miracles in the last few weeks, including today’s addition, this update will be rather short. The reason for the brevity of today’s update is because the Muslim, Eid al-Adha, a time of special evangelism by the House of Blessing missionaries is only days away and I’d like you to know what has happened […]

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….6/23/2022….”The Good News!”

Maybe it is because I am now an old guy, but it seems like time is flying by faster every day! Here we are, nearly at the end of June, 2022. 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 […]
