Luke 24:6 “He is not here; he has risen!”
He is risen indeed!
My 7 year old granddaughter was being interviewed by her pastor before she was to be baptized. When asked “How are you growing as a Christian?” Lindsey replied: I am eating lots of Chicken!” We all laugh at her honest response. But to me what was so exciting was the answer to the next question: “Why do you want to be baptized?” And she replied, “Because I want all my friends to know that I am a Christian!” My buttons almost popped! Her two brothers were also baptized that morning and their responses were similar. Okay! I know I am just being a proud grandpa here, but, I get this excited every time I see someone accept Christ and then take a public stand for Him! I hope as we celebrate Easter that we will all resolve to boldly represent our risen Savior! Possibly this is the year that you will commit to a mission trip or take on some responsibility at your church. Friends, He is not only risen, BUT HE IS COMING BACK! Please make the best use of your time!
We want to thank the Judson Baptist Church in Joliet, IL for their continued efforts to raise funds to support our orphanage in Haiti. Mike T, a member of that church was led by God a few years ago to use his background as a business man and put it to use creating fund raisers to help our children in Haiti. Without him and the dozens from his church that help, we would be very under-funded. What a gift they have been from the Lord!!! If you live in the Joliet area please take the time to either donate some items or attend the sale this Spring.
Mike is willing to send you some of his ideas to help you do the same thing in your community. As we look at the possibility of purchasing or building a new orphanage in Haiti, we wonder how the Lord will provide. Possibly, this could be a way. Please prayerfully consider these ideas and feel free to contact us for more details.
