MIDEAST UPDATE….3/18/2021….”Just As I Am”

In the last update, I told the story of five men; a father named Suleiman, and his four grown sons, Majd, Mustafa, Refaat, and Aref. These five men had been raised Muslim but eventually became Islamic State (Daesh) militants. When in God’s providence their paths crossed with House of Blessing’s missionaries, Omar, Sami, and Mussa, they found that Jesus Christ […]

MIDEAST UPDATE….2/20/2021….”The Tent World”

  As we find ourselves in the last days of February, 2021, most of us are already looking forward to spring. That is certainly the case in the Middle East, especially in the northern areas. I spoke with Pastor R just prior to the arrival of a snow storm and the House of Blessing missionaries were doing what they could […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…2/8/2021…”Little is Much when GOD is in It!”

In today’s world, particularly in Western culture, most people find it hard to believe in miracles. Yet, supernatural events do occur. It is not true that the miraculous events recorded for us during Jesus’ 3-1/2 years of ministry in Palestine and then continued by Jesus’ hand-picked apostles ended when they had passed on into eternity. Church history is laced with […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…1/27/2021…”Looking for Another Country!”

I was sent quite a number of photos showing the difficult conditions people in the refugee camps are having to endure again this year. This is of course not something new this winter of 2021. It is however something that many of us need to see again in order for us not to forget to pray for these folks and […]

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 11/20/2020 “Help From on High”

As the nations of the world are continuing to struggle with the COVID-19 virus, so are the people in the Middle East. The hardest hit are always those who have the least at their disposal to fight the virus. This is especially the case among the multitudes of people who have been displaced. Large numbers of the displaced live in […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…10/18/2020….”Our GOD is Faithful”

For those who have not been living under a rock, they will have noticed that we have been experiencing one of the most unusual years ever. Fires that have devastated huge areas of Australia, South America, Siberia, Africa, and many other locations— particularly since 2017—have only gotten worse, the fires of 2020 being the very worst of the worst. But […]

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…8/10/2020…”The Awesome Power of GOD!”

For those who have read the previous update, you will remember that an urgent request was made for prayer for Pastor R and several of the House of Blessing leaders. Pastor R had come down with a serious virus of some kind. It was not possible to determine if he was having a recurrence of the COVID-19 or if this […]
