Dear Fellow Pilgrims,

We salute you with love in our hearts in the majestic name of Jesus Christ our King! Sharing together an everlasting home in His Kingdom, we all are awed as freedom from the tyrannical power of darkness dawns upon our sin-numbed minds. Being liberated for eternity from the seemingly endless cycle of legalism and guilt, we revel with you in the blossoming fruit of His righteousness, peace and joy. How refreshing and invigorating to press our soul's shoulder against His easy yoke and pull with Him our light load! How relaxing to be learning true righteousness and true love in the real-life lessons of Dr. Holy Ghost who personally tutors us in the interactive, creative classroom of our own heart!

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Romans 14:17

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:29-30


We are honored to announce the completion of our video series of a reading of the book, With Christ in the School of Prayer by Andrew Murray. The Lord has certainly used this book to ratchet up the prayer-life of many and to intensify their communion with Him. The main reason we tackled this project is because we discovered that some can grasp this material better if they watch someone read it rather than just listening to it on audio tape. To help the modern reader to understand the Bible passages included in the text, we have updated the Scripture quotes to a recent translation. Also, because our language has changed so much since Rev. Murray wrote this book in 1895, we felt it necessary in some cases to rework his choice of words, his manner of expression, and his presentation of concepts. You can access the whole video series (35 lessons) and the written, edited version in ".pdf" format, for free, on our website at:

http://christianconcourse.org/With-Christ-in-the-School-of-Prayer.htm

As time and resources allow, we will have the 5 DVD set available at no cost for those who would like to study the book on their TV. The same is true with the 150+ page edited version, with larger 12pt text, in loose-leaf form. Just give us a call at 757-714-3133 and we will get them to you as soon as we can.


Remember the indigenous ministry of Peter Onyango in Kenya: he carries a heavy burden in caring for elderly widows in his village. We can help Peter minister to them. He needs funds to provide mosquito netting, firewood, food, medication and water. We here in the U. S. who know of his labor for the Lord are the major source of his support. Please prayerfully consider what the Lord would want you to do toward helping us help Peter! See our website for pictures and more info.

Send your donations to:

Worldwide Discipleship Association
Peter Onyango's Account - “elderly”
P. O. Box 142437
Fayetteville, GA 30214

WDA will handle the transfer of funds to Africa and mail you a receipt for your contribution if you send it directly to them. They retain a reduced rate of only 4% of the donations for Peter to cover their expenses (a very reasonable amount in our opinion). If you have questions, you are welcome to call us at (757)714-3133. On Peter's behalf we thank you for your consideration.


We thank you for your love toward us, your intercession for our needs, and your financial support for this work. Dar is doing very well after her surgery in June, and Jerry is fine since the episode with his heart early last year. As we prepare for a busy autumn, we would be grateful for your continued prayers.

Sincerely,

Jerry and Dar

Jerry and Dar Johnson.
