Looking Toward the Future TogetherJanuary 14, 2008
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Thank you for being a part of what the Lord has done in 2007. We've seen salvations, rededications, and seen personal walks with Jesus become strong and grow as a direct result of what God has done through you and us together. Thank you for your prayers, your letters of encouragement, and your financial support.
The months of November and December were difficult for some of you. We know, because we lost about 1/3 of our financial support during those two months. But we know that God will continue to provide. And if you are one of those going through a difficult time in your life, just hang in there. God is still on the throne. And he hasn't forgotten about you, nor has his innumerable thoughts of peace and hope for and about you slackened.
There are many Christians all around the world who are ready to pray for you. You're invited to post your prayer needs either publicly or privately. If public, we will pray for you during our weekly virtual service and podcast. If private, a small group of believers will pray for you in confidence. Just go to http://livingsounds.org and click the Ministry menu.
If the Lord lays it upon your heart to help fill the need left by going on three months of the missing 1/3 of our support, you are invited to partner with us today. Just go to http://livingsounds.org and click the Support this Ministry link on the right.
In addition, I'd like to run a thought by you. Every week we buy things such as groceries, pharmaceuticals, and personal care items. Many of us may buy an electronic or clothing item on a regular basis, or perhaps office supplies. But we probably never think about where the profits go or whether they could be redirected to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
After a bit of searching, we've discovered an online shopping service that will allow you to keep buying what you already buy at the prices you already pay (or less) and see a portion of the profits support the ministry. Either shop at the following site (through partners such as Office Max, PetSmart, Family Christian Bookstores, and Overstock.com), or click to get your own mall (it's free) so you can get rebates and still have a percentage of the sales automatically go to support this ministry, and possibly generate some extra personal income.
Thank you again for being a part of what the Lord is doing through this outreach, and may 2008 be a year of spiritual growth and abundant blessings in every area of your life!
