 Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
 

   It is our joy to partner with you in service to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We thank you for your faithfulness to pray and give to the work that God has placed us into. As you know Hurricane Laura has greatly affected the state of Louisiana. We have received many calls and emails from the saints from around the world expressing their concern and praying on our behalf. My family has come through the storm with no damage by the grace of God we are trying to do what we can to help the many saints that were in the direct path of the storm. We have been delivering food, water and fuel to those affected by hurricane Laura in Louisiana.  Please pray for our brothers and sisters as they pick up the pieces and start over. 

     I know there have been various hardships many have endured in this past year. We are witnessing so many constant changes daily. With change comes the reality of uncertainty and this leaves many with a sense of hopelessness. “And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men verily swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it was imposable for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us, which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil, where the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 6:15-20

 V-15 Abraham “patiently endured”-Abraham trusted God: when we trust God we walk with God. It is here that we can grow in grace and knowledge of God.

V-18 the two immutable things gave Abraham encouragement and assurance: we have a greater revelation of God through the death and resurrection of Christ and HIS ascension and intercession. These immutable truths give encouragement and assurance to the saints who flee to HIM for refuge.

     Our text in Hebrews is referring to the Old Testament times, when there were refuge cities: if a person had accidently killed someone he would be tried and acquitted of the crime but he must remain in the city walls for protection until the death of the High Priest to atone for the death. We are all guilty sinners and our penalty for sin is death, but Christ is our refuge as we flee to Him, He bore our penalty of death; dying in place, upon the cross. The penalty is paid by our High Priest, Christ. There are no seats in the temple, only the mercy seat, which typified God’s throne. The earthly high priest could never sit because his work of giving continual sacrifices was never completed. But our High Priest, Jesus Christ ascended. 

 V-19 “with in the veil”- Christ entered into the Holy of Holies with his own blood and obtained eternal redemption for us.  Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” Hebrews 9:12 “but this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God” . Hebrews 10:12

       He sat down because redemption is complete-“IT’S FINISHED”. Christ is the anchor of our soul. It is a constant encouragement knowing He is in the presence of God interceding for us. In these constant, chaotic, changing times—flee to Christ, our refuge, for comfort.

  

Malawi, Africa:The children and staff are doing well during the COVID quarantine. As our children here in the states are restless for school to start so are the children at Rainbow. Our college students are doing studies online and the secondary students will start school mid-September. Continue to pray for the nation of Malawi, as they work with their new president, to hopefully make their country a God lead nation, which is their new president’s desire. 

                                                                                  

 Thank you for sharing in the vision, burden and joy of this ministry. Because in all that

we do it is for the purpose of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are in need.

 


 
  This is just a small report of what is God is doing, there is much more. We are thankful to the Lord for keeping our calendar full; this year I will do over  40 revivals and meetings all over the states. As well as conferences and mission work in multiple countries. 2020 Revival Schedule

 
“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, if we ask
anything according to His will, He heareth us.
And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have
                                               the petitions that we desired of Him.” I John 5:14-15
 
TO GOD BE THE GLORY, FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE.
