Proclaiming the Gospel; Equipping the saints; Mobilizing the Church

"We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus"

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

October 2022


Shalom and Grace to you Dear Co-Partner,

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. This is how the Apostle Paul begins his letter to the church at Corinth (2 Cor. 1:3-4). Second Corinthians has been a good study for us at this time as Paul shares of false teachers who were challenging both his personal integrity and his authority as an apostle. They were saying that Paul wasn’t a genuine apostle and was putting into his own pocket the money they had collected for the poverty-stricken brethren in Jerusalem. Paul expresses his feelings in this letter, more so than any other, as he goes from despair to joy. Lately, the Lord has put the words ‘caring’ and ‘sharing’ on our hearts and Paul has been a great example. As we write this letter with praises and prayer requests, we also want to open our hearts to you and share the challenges we are confronted with each day.

What does ‘caring and sharing’ look like? ‘Caring and sharing’ can come in various forms. On one hand, it can look like caring for the spiritual condition of the unsaved by sharing the hope found only in Jesus the Messiah. On another, it can look like coming alongside a brother or sister in need. The Gospel is free, but that’s because Jesus paid the great cost. Everything has a cost, and bringing the Gospel to the lost is no different; it requires sacrifice. We have lived this wa our entire married lives and it has cost us in many ways. We have been on the frontlines for years and we thank God for the strength He gives us personally and the resources He provides that we may remain faithful to His calling.

The challenges vary as we follow the Lord’s leading to different parts of the world, yet the attacks of the enemy remain consistent. The Apostle Paul wrote, “we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; struck down, but not destroyed;” (2 Cor. 4:8-9). For this we give God the glory. Currently, we are in the U.S. traveling from New York to South Dakota and have been visiting brothers and sisters along the way. We have also been sharing with supporting churches; ever grateful for the many opportunities the Lord has given us to care and share.

While we have been sharing and speaking at churches and with friends, we are realizing that many do not fully understand our ministry. So we want to share with you what it really is the Lord has called us to do. For those of you who may not know this, Henry and I have been serving together for twenty-four years. Some people think we are missionaries, but we don’t actually fit into the traditional missionary box, as we don’t remain in one place. We are evangelists called to itinerant ministry, like that of the Apostle Paul.

We are sent out from the church. We proclaim the Gospel, equip the saints, and mobilize the church. Proclaiming is important because people need to hear the Gospel. The power of God is in the Gospel in the person Jesus and His work. Equipping and mobilizing the body is also important as many pastors around the world need mentorship, training, encouragement, and help. We work alongside local churches both here in the U.S. and abroad, where in  many countries they don’t have access to the resources available to churches in the States. Another key part of our ministry vision is Romans 1:16 – not being ashamed of the Gospel and also not forgetting to bring it to the Jewish people as well as Gentiles (the nations). We have found that the greatest blessing to the House of Israel (Jewish people) is to share the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, and the hope of eternal life in Him. This is the business of eternal affairs.

Living in Jerusalem for eighteen years has given us a strong understanding of the cultural differences and obstacles present when bringing the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus). The Lord trained us very well in sharing with Jewish people; from the most religious Jews to the most secular. We shared the Gospel at many New Age festivals in Israel, and this was where we came to understand the importance of taking this ministry to the countries often visited by young Israelis, and also to equip and mobilize the churches there to share the Gospel with them. These Israelis travel to Africa, India, Nepal, and the Far East, seeking a spiritual experience, as they are tired of the religion/tradition of their fathers. This is what initiated our relationships with the churches in these countries. Some churches had a heart for the Jewish people, but didn’t know how to reach them. Others didn’t see the need to reach Jewish people and were focused solely on reaching their own people.

Over these twenty-four years, God has been faithful. Has it been easy? No. Many doors were closed on us and many times we were discouraged because our heart was to see the Jews saved. Many didn’t understand this (but some did); it has been a pioneering work. For those of you who know us and have supported this ministry through prayer and finances, we say thank you. We need your encouragement and your support. The thing that really drives us forward is the souls that are saved and the incredible joy of seeing someone go from darkness into light. You can’t put a price on this; it has eternal value. There is still much work to be done and many needs. The list can be daunting. Sometimes I wonder how in this world are we able to do all that we do? I say this for God’s glory, because it’s all about Him and He is the one who sustains us, who gives us grace, who provides, protects, divinely appoints our steps, and who comforts us.

Dear fellow workers in God’s vineyard, know that you are also called. Maybe you aren’t physically on the field, but you are sending; and if you aren’t yet sending, please consider sending us. We have needs. God knows. We are going to continue on, even in the midst of opposition, trials, and challenges; and we encourage you to do the same. Together we can, and are, accomplishing much.

Please pray for us. We are praying for you. Send us an encouraging word. In January, we will have been on the road for three years; and for me as a woman, it can be quite difficult at times. Since we’ve returned from Tanzania, we’ve experienced much opposition, but in the midst of that we continue to find joy in those who come to faith in Jesus.
