Newsletter of the Month

September 2010

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you may remember, in January we included a list of seven special prayer requests. These prayer concerns reflect what we feel to be the Lord's expressed will for this ministry. We have included these seven items for prayer on the back of this letter. Please help us in seeking the Lord's blessings and guidance in each of these areas of our labor for Him.

We want to discuss request number seven this month:

 

We ask the Perfect Teacher to lead us to realize our efforts to put the true-inductive, true-seminar-style Bible study, "Chapter & Verse," on the world-wide web for the edification and the unity of the Body of Christ all over this planet.

 

This is a big request. 17 years ago we feel that the Lord Jesus gave us a Bible study system that addresses many of the issues raised by the broad spectrum of Christian dialog on the world-wide web. There is much irresponsible speculation and doctrinal discord wafting through cyber-space. Our true-inductive, true-seminar-style system of Bible study - "Chapter & Verse" - can bring a much needed discipline and focus to this chaotic digital environment. We sincerely ask you to pray with us as we seek the Lord's guidance and provision in the development and implementation of "Chapter & Verse" on our website. If you know a web developer who has the time to help us, please put us in touch with them.

 

A Day of Prayer for Long-Term Care

October 23rd, 2010, 10AM to 4PM
Cornerstone Baptist Church – 1500 Sewell's Point Rd., Norfolk, VA 23502
 
Join us in corporate and small-group intercession on behalf of the residents of long-term care settings in Hampton Roads, throughout the States and all over the world.

As the Lord leads, we will also be praying for the staff of the facilities, for family members of residents, for the home-bound and their caregivers, for LTC volunteers and for Christian ministers in this mission field.

We will take a one-hour break between 12 noon and 1PM for lunch and fellowship.
Please RSVP ASAP! Bring a bag lunch. Drinks will be provided.

 

Let us remind you of the indigenous ministry of Peter Onyango in Orucho, Kenya: he continues leading his band of Christian volunteers in caring for orphans and elderly widows in their village. We can help Peter minister to them. He needs funds to provide them with mosquito netting, firewood, food, medication and water. Those of us here in the U. S. who know of his labor for the Lord are the major source of his support. A "little bit" to us goes a long way to Peter! Please, please prayerfully consider what the Lord would want you to do.
In answer to our prayers, we believe the Lord has graciously brought the needs of Peter's ministry to our attention. Again, we ask that you please consider 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


As we said last month, WDA will handle the transfer of funds to Africa and send you a receipt for your contribution if you send it directly to them. Because he is overseas, they retain a reduced rate of only 4% of the donations for Peter to cover these expenses (a very reasonable amount in our opinion). If you have questions, you are welcome to call us at (757)714-3133.

Thank You!

Love in Christ,
Jerry and Dar

Prayer Requests

We invite you to join with us in our appeal to the Master of the Universe to aid us this year in the following areas:

We ask God Almighty to bless this work with a mighty and effective proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ to the lost...and to confirm His Word with miracles, signs and wonders.

We humbly pray to God the Father for an anointed, solid Word of encouragement to His dear children who are struggling in their faith and their hope in the Eternal Promises of Christ.

We cry out to our Loving Savior for a fresh endowment of His compassion for the hurting, the forgotten, the struggling in long-term care settings all over the world.

We appeal to God for His empowerment and His favor in calling together His soldiers in long-term care volunteerism in our region and in our nation.

We pray that God give us a reliable means of extending a helping hand to fellow long-term care laborers throughout the Earth, and especially in third world countries.

We call on the Great Creative Writer to guide us and inspire us as we pursue production of the seventh edition of "A Handbook for Long-Term-Care Ministry."

We ask the Perfect Teacher to lead us to realize our efforts to put the true-inductive, true-seminar-style Bible study, "Chapter & Verse," on the world-wide web for the edification and the unity of the Body of Christ all over this planet.

In obedience and submission to Your leading in this, Your ministry, we lay these petitions before You, Father and yield to Your wisdom, Your timing and the proportion of Your provision - for Your Eternal Glory - in the wonderful, precious Name of Your Dear Son, Jesus Christ.
