Dear LLT Family,
2019! Happy New Year! Honestly, I never imagined we’d still be on planet Earth when year 2019 came rolling around. But here we are.
Time has not come to an end. But it will. Whether in my lifetime or not, the promise is sure. “I go to prepare a place for you,” Jesus said. “And I will come again, and take you to myself, so that where I am you may be also.” John 14:2,3
Until that day, or until something else stops us, we have things to do!
News Notes and Progress Updates
As the new year takes off, our Youtube Project is going forward in spite of obstacles and delays, and by the grace of God!
The Immortal Soul, our first program, is assembled and the graphics and word art are being created. Along with that, a social media guru is making our online materials most effective, developing the foundation for efficient online delivery when the Youtube series is ready.
While that’s happening I’ll be off on a short trip – thankfully with internet access most of the time – to Turkey and Beirut, Lebanon. I’m still reachable by phone should anyone need me.
Beirut!! That’s where I grew up! That was my childhood home! That’s where my siblings and I caught scorpions, snakes, chuckwallas and chameleons; that’s where “Grandma Robinson” (Ella Robinson, granddaughter of EGW) taught me to read at a blackboard in our garage; that’s where our donkey Bozo rode home in the back seat of our car after he’d run away and our dog Gink escaped from us kids and pranced around campus in my brother’s underwear. To go back is a dream and a privilege.
Hell and Mr. Fudge will be shown at Middle East University in Beirut and in a public venue, either a Municipal Hall or a local theater. The team in Lebanon hope to have it subtitled in Arabic (translation going on right now) by the 9
th of February, when it will be shown. That’s a big order so please add your prayers to theirs and ours that it comes together quickly and well. I’m invited to be there and share my story of God’s goodness.
The Wandering Day and portions of the
Seventh Day, which is already subtitled in Arabic, will also be shown.
One more bit of business I’d appreciate your prayers for: LLT, since 1991, has resided in a rented building. The owners are supporters whose family has generously provided LLT’s studio/office space for over 30 years. They’ve offered to sell it to us and we’d like to buy it. To work out the way and means looks challenging, so we’re asking for divine guidance.
Thank you for being a part of the LLT family, for holding us up, for your faithful support of the work. I’m wishing you a new year full of blessings and challenges, evidences of God’s grace and power and a closer, deeper love for Him.
