LATEST MINISTRY UPDATE & PRAYER REQUEST
I’ve been just under two weeks now in a New Jersey hotel waiting for instructions from the Lord as He prepares me for my next ministry season in New York City. I’ve been engaged in a raging fiery spiritual battle, and it’s only by God’s love and grace and the strong support of fellow Christ followers that I’m still standing and haven’t called it quits.
The combination of a decades-long very painful family situation, two years on the road for Jesus without a solid break, caring for up to 19 rescued dogs at a time for over 20 years, leading this ministry with extremely little financial and physical support, losing the major support for the printing of Gospel tracts and devotionals that go out around the country, and losing my beloved 15-year-old dog Dancer just days ago just a few days after arriving in New Jersey, and the devil trying relentlessly to get me to quit life and ministry, well, as you may imagine, I’m very wiped out!
That said, the Lord has told me this season in New Jersey is one of preparation, and that I am to walk by faith. To press on. To continue forward. And that the preparation right now involves resting, writing, spending time with Him most importantly, and seeking housing for my season in New York City.
If you’ve ever heard of a burned out missionary, that’s pretty much where I am right now. But I am as tenacious as a pit bull terrier dog, and I will not lose my hold on Jesus, on the Bible, and on my ministry calling that I may continue to live to love and serve God with all my heart.
My top needs are love, prayer, encouragement, financial support, and physical help with the ministry.
Thank you for your prayers!
Staying true and faithful to Jesus by the mercy of Christ,
