Dear Folks:
Time is flying by for all of us; and so many problems in the world today, so much getting out of control and there seems to be no recognition that it is a result of so many turning away from God and to the lures of Satan.

I remember when we started each day in school with a Bible Reading and the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag, now it seems we are afraid to offend anyone. Without the Lord in your life, I cannot imagine what will happen; that’s why it is so important for us to share the Gospel wherever we are at every opportunity.

We still support our foreign missions, this month we have sent out over$400, and more is always needed, there is no end but… as Jerry Jones used to say and we say, God is your source, not the Tibbitts or anybody else. I think we have all found that out; how many times do you hear people say, “I am right behind you” but they are so far behind us we can no longer see them.

I am not able to leave Frank and go to the Mission Fields right now, he needs more attention, although he never complains. I am so glad for Messenger on Facebook; it keeps us in contact with our pastors on the Mission Fields. This morning I talked with and encouraged one of congregation from years back that we helped send to Bible School who is ministering in Japan for 40 minutes at no charge. As we look back on the ministry the Lord gave us, we have been mightily used, but our ministry is not over; now we are “blooming where we are planted.” Lots of local ministry needed, and we are doing it.

The racial unrest with the help of many Liberals is flourishing like it was during the Martin Luther King days. I do not know if it is possible to drain the swamp, they are so comfortable in their positions, and why the Trump Administration hasn’t gotten rid of those who have held positions with the previous administration makes no sense to me at all; surely there are men and women who are qualified to hold those same positions. It must be very difficult to not know who is “with you and who is against you.” It is the same in churches as well though isn’t it!!!

I certainly am glad the good Lord has everything under HIt seems like the ministry is full of those who totally control or those who say or do nothing, so as “not to upset the apricot,” as my sister Judy-bug would say. guess it is time to get off the soap box, but this is really on my heart.

Thank you so much for those of you who send love gifts, it is so necessary since I cannot get out and get funding in for the mission work now. I have fallen twice in the past three weeks, not good. I have signed up for a physical fitness place associated with the hospital to help me with my balance. God is good, and I know I am going to be fine, just so used to doing things in a hurry and I just cannot do it anymore. Wish we lived closer, we all need the fellowship, at least we do. Once again thank you for your love and your gift to Bridge Ministries. We do have a bit of wonderful news, even though our own reserves are
drained; we have our Philippine SEC papers restored at a cost of $1500, with a new set of officers with our same initial registration number, which is highly unusual. Praise the Lord!!!!

II Chronicles 7:14

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Pray folks, pray!

God bless you!
