Dear Fellow Travelers on the Road from Earth to Glory.
Greetings in the name of the Author and Finisher of our Faith. He is the One who has traveled this road before any of us set foot on our pathway by trusting Christ as our Savior. The fear of the future should be allayed by knowing that our Lord has been through it all as the God/Man and so He is the One who can understand and minister to our every emotion.
We venture out again for the first time in a few years on a journey of ministry to missionaries and the preaching of the Word to the dear folks in South Africa. Though this will not be an extended four month trip such as we did for 25 years twice a year, it will be a month long journey as a sort of final opportunity to say goodbye here on earth till we meet them (you) all in glory very soon.
Though we might be tempted after so many trips to assume the obvious and proceed in our own confidence and experience, we are reminded of our dependence on the Lord every step we take. The Lord does bring into our lives new experiences to challenge and strengthen our faith in His person and promises. He is unchangeable and it is our own reasoning that causes us to have more confidence in our own abilities than in His faithfulness. So we are on our way tomorrow to South Africa learning as we go of God’s superintendence in all of our affairs.
Our Father as the precious provider has orchestrated all that is involved in this journey. The Son who has been through it all as the God/Man is the One who accompanies us and indwells us. The Holy Spirit is the One who is the guide and comforter by applying all that God is doing in our lives.
Thank you for joining us in this ministry by praying for every aspect of this journey especially those facets which are beyond our planning. Much will be beyond our control as we serve under the guidance of so many people who will orchestrate our service in various places. Some items to consider are our dependence on the Lord, our choice of teaching and preaching topics, safety, protection, travel, health, resources, connections or other issues. The Holy Spirit will use God’s Word and His voice to guide your intercession.
Many personal and collective meetings are planned such as
Senior’s home, Radio programs, Bible College, Youth meetings,
Missionaries, Prayer meetings, Missionary reports, Home Bible Studies,
Small groups etc etc.
In all of this we are
Serving the greatest Master,
Fred and Jenny
