Acts 19 ... Today!

Pastor Chuquipiondo was elderly and ill. A sincere preacher and believer in Jesus Christ in the jungle city of Iquitos, Peru, he was now faced with situations beyond his control...and he didn't have answers.

"And people who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives, and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted." ––Nate Saint

Old Songs Say It So Well (3)

MY HOUSE IS FULL
L. Wolfe


There is peace and contentment in the Father's house today
Lots of food on the table, and no one is turned away;
There is music and laughter as the hours pass by
But a hush calms the singing as the Father sadly cries:

“Just one life. This is all any one of us has to offer. How can it be used for the greatest glory of God and the greatest blessing to men? How can we be as useful as possible and as effective as possible as Christians?”Michael Griffiths, Give Up Your Small Ambitions, 1970

The missionary heart: Care more than some think is wise. Risk more than some think is safe. Dream more than some think is practical. Expect more than some think is possible. I was called not to comfort or success but to obedience….There is no joy outside of knowing Jesus and serving him.”—Karen Watson, martyr, March 15, 2004

The Business of Soul-winning Can Hurt

Loving souls can be a risky endeavor. Sometimes the rewards are great...others, not so much; occasionally, you end up with a lot of egg on your face.

I am sad to report that this is an "egg-on-face" moment: there is not much good to report in regard to the previous post, "A Tract and a Jehovah's Witness."


It appears, at this juncture, that we were almost the victims of a very sophisticated swindle –with a cast of actors that deserve an Oscar.


The man hit us up for a goodly sum of money for a "bone marrow transplant," but when our office administrator asked him for ID, he gave it - but stopped accepting or returning all phone calls and text messages, even though it was supposedly urgent for right then (yesterday). We've been doing a lot of investigating, and find no connections so far between him and the JWs. 


I hate to have to report this, but at least there isn't a dying 15-year-old. Still...what a sad story. Thank you all for praying in good faith...and I'm glad we were alerted in time.
