Notice - NASA post removed

We removed the previous post about NASA and the "Missing Day".
There was too much conflicting information and nothing could be verified.

We are sorry for the confusion....we know they'll find out it's true one day, hopefully before it's too late!

Evangelism Training in the Philippines

The August Evangelism Training was just completed in Cebu City, Philippines.
Here's the report from Dennis at Living Waters-Asia.

The seminar at Cebu City, with the help of Living Word Christian
Ministries, Inc., was a big success by God's grace. There were delegates
from different churches in the island as well as delegates from the other
major island of the Philippines, Mindanao.

We also had Filipino Christians coming all the way from Australia. An American and a Canadian were also present in the event. Everyone appreciated the things discussed
on the four lectures that I did. There was one delegate who, before the seminar, was thinking of quitting the ministry as the pastors in their area have been criticizing her for including a talk of hell and sin in her street evangelism activities. she testified after the seminar that she is raring to go back to her province as the seminar confirmed to her that she was sharing a biblical message. She had a renewed zeal to serve or Master after the event. A lot of young Christians were also around and they were the ones who had so many questions during the Q & A. After the event,
they bought several Gospel tracts to arm themselves for the battle they
will be facing as they win the lost for Christ.

Future WOTM seminars are also in the works as a result of the event as
church leaders in attendance have expressed desire to invite us to do the
same training for churches in their respective provinces.

It was a very tiring weekend for me and the team, but it was all worth it
as the service was done for our Master.

How are you sharing?

Our friend Rob sent a note to us the other day and he gave us permission to share it...he makes an excellent point about the WAY we should share.

I received a call from Wells Fargo inviting me to buy a particular type of insurance. I informed her I have turned this down twice previously but that I did have a question for her.

She said sure. I said, “If you die tonight, do you know where you are going?”. She asked me to repeat the question and then she said she was going to heaven. I asked her how she knew. She replied she just knew. I asked her if it was because she was a good person and she answered yes. I quoted Hebrews 9:27 and said, “you know, Jesus has been appointed the judge on Judgment Day and he will essentially be using the 10 commandments to make his decision (unless we are covered by His blood which I did not share at this point – of course). I asked her how many lies she had told in her life. She was very uncomfortable with the question and she replied she didn’t call me to talk about that and so I said if she ever wanted to make sure where she was going to spend eternity, to call me again.

So this was my first effort to witness to people on the phone, thanks to Steve. I was obedient to the Holy Spirit. That is my job, to be obedient in love. I was nice to her which this email does not convey and even listened to her entire spiel. If we don’t do it in love, we are like a clanging symbol and are of no use to the Creator.

Thanks for your help and encouragement.

In Jesus,


1 Corinthians 13:1
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

Thank you Rob, for your faithfulness!

A SAD - SAD World

From Exodus 20:1-10 And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, ...

On a business trip to Monaco/Monte Carlo (yes someone had to go….) I tried to hand out some of the many French tracts I brought with me while I was waiting between meetings. Sadly, only very few people would take them. I tried to hand them to all age groups – but no takers. As you can see from these 2 pictures the locals and most visitors had their ‘gods’ in this earthly world. The name on this boat sums it up.

I finally decided to leave the tracts where ever I could - phone kiosks, benches, bus seats, etc. I did manage to leave over 100.

Now the GOOD NEWS. At breakfast, I noticed a big smudge on my coffee cup when Saleem, the Tunisian server gave it to me. I pointed it out and he said it was not from him - we had a good laugh. He came back a few minutes later and said it was very rare to have that kind of mistake happen and the customer laugh instead of getting angry. I told him it was because I was a new person in God through His Son Jesus. I gave him a French tract and "Why Christianity" booklet. The other servers saw this, and I had an opportunity to witness, though it was less than a minute as other customers were showing up. They all got tracts and the Gospel in a few seconds.

PLEASE pray for the lost souls in this world.
