MIDEAST UPDATE…5/23/2022…”And To All Those Afar Off”

I came across an interesting article in which the question was asked, “Is the West Missing the Harvest?”  I spent some time pondering the question. For those of us who live in the West, unless we have contact with some knowledgeable people who are involved in overseas Christian ministries, we may not even be aware how explosive the harvest of […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…2/3/2022…”Times of the Gentiles”

As I was preparing to write today’s Mideast Update, I found myself thinking about how Jesus had foretold the future great harvest of Gentiles into the Kingdom of God. After the parable of the wicked vinedressers in Matthew 20:33-41 we find these two verses: Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone which the builders […]

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….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…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…9/17/2020…Our GOD is Alive!

I received two calls this week from Pastor R. The second one had an interesting surprise in it that I will share at the end of this update. Be sure not to miss it. As you’ll remember from the previous update, Pastor R said that about 800 or so of the missionaries had to take a bit of a break […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…8/25/2020…”To Live is Christ, to Die is Gain”

I received a call from Pastor R and, as soon as I heard his voice, I knew something had happened. He was barely able to hold back the tears as he told me that Pastor Farid had been killed just the day before. The details of what all happened are still being gathered but before I pass on what Pastor […]

MIDEAST UPDATE…4/24/2020

No matter what news source you pick up, the main subject matter is the COVID-19. The novel coronavirus took very little time to circle the globe. Life as most knew it has changed drastically. This is also the case in the Middle East.  As the Islamic month of Ramadan has now officially begun, Muslims are finding themselves in a situation […]
