Tell The Good News

In Romans 10:14-15 we read:
"How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!”

During April and May we had the privilege to help a couple we know move to Colorado. What a blessed time we had! We saw this as Father’s divine appointment for us and we knew that it was His plan. I could go into detail about all the preparations and how Father moved miraculously in this whole situation but the main point here is obedience. We were obedient to go where Father sent us and do what He told us to do. During that time of helping them, Father also sent us for ministry to many in the Colorado area who He had introduced us to years ago. Father gave us a list of those He wanted us to visit. He also told us He would add to the list as we were about His business. We shared and encouraged these folks as Father gave direction. Each one had a need in their life and the Lord sent us to speak His words of blessing. His divine appointments and timing were totally evident. Most people see this scripture above as only referring to preachers, pastors, missionaries who are called to go into the world and preach the gospel. But do you see this as pertaining to you? You may say: You are not a preacher! You are not a teacher! You are not a missionary!! Oh but dear friend YOU ARE ALL OF THOSE THINGS!! As you go into the world you are to teach, preach and share Jesus!! That is what Father desires of His kids! Speak His name! Love with His love!! Give His hugs! We are His arms and legs, His mouth and His eyes. Do you know how many times people have noticed our eyes or our smile and made a comment? Doors open through the power of the Holy Spirit and lives are changed by that power. He abides in us and we abide in Him. That means He dwells within us. Let Him out to the world around you!!

So dear saint of God as you go about your daily tasks, walk out Matthew 28:19-20:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen

Thank you dear prayer partners for your love, prayers and financial support as we go into to all the world and share Jesus!! Our 5 week Colorado and Missouri trip was the first extended trip in several years but Father has already told us to stay ready to go again soon. Thank You Lord!! It is our desire to follow You to the ends of the earth!!

Love to all,

Charley & Karen
