As I enter my 32nd year of full-time ministry, I am overtaken by the greatness of God and how HE can take the unqualified and mold them into the qualified. Then He equips them so they can proclaim HIS message. I consider it an honor to be one of His messengers. However, in 2015 I didn’t preach anywhere due to a “temporary” speech problem. For a preacher, that could be devastating. But, if you remember, I shared last year that I blurted out to God, “How can they hear a preacher that has no VOICE?” Here was His response……”Just because you cannot talk and be heard…does NOT mean you have NO VOICE.” Well, as usual God was right.
I figured out that I have preached thousands of messages over the last three decades. Some are more relevant today than they were 20 years ago. God is repurposing those messages so I can preach around the world via the Internet…..all from our home in Dickinson. Also, I realized our E-quip Ministries mission statement says, “Called to preach, publish, and proclaim the true Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world, around the clock.” God has us in the “publish” phase of that mission statement which gives me a “voice” in print. Plus, due to another “temporary” problem in my hands, God has equipped me with feet that can TYPE! That must be why the Bible says, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO PREACH THE GOSPEL.” So, we have great hopes that 2016 will be our greatest year ever.
I am not afraid or shy when I say that we can only accomplish what God has imparted to us by the prayers and the financial donations of others. I know, I know, salvation is free. However, for that salvation message to reach “all the world” it takes money. We have great partners that believe in God and believe in Margie and me. So, once or twice a year I like to offer people the opportunity to become part of something bigger than themselves, by partnering with us. Trust me, no pressure at all, just offering some good ground to plant your seed in, so we can all experience God’s great harvest. Ask the Lord about it, and do what He says. Most of all….please keep praying for us, and we will do the same for you.
