I believe. Ã‚Â Help my unbelief.
We are thankful for the support of GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s people.Ã‚Â Thank you!Ã‚Â Now as we move toward closing out one year and beginning another, we believe God is granting new vision to prepare us to meet new challenges as we anticipate growing societal deterioration.Ã‚Â How could it be otherwise when one sees what the media pours out upon our moral senses.Ã‚Â How could it be otherwise when we see what the government is foisting upon us via Ã¢â‚¬Å“DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Ask DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t TellÃ¢â‚¬Â, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Obama Care,Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cap and Trade?Ã¢â‚¬Â
We have broadcast in our monthly newsletter what we believe God is speaking into our hearts.
Here it is for your consideration and prayerful support.
Several weeks ago out in the parking lot on a Sunday evening after church Jeremiah (aged 23) discussed with me that he has wanted to work with us here at American Decency Association.
Jeremiah is one of the finest young men I have ever known.
I have known Jeremiah since he was 7 years old.Ã‚Â My son Chris (who is just returning to work here after working in a two month internship with cnsnews.com) met him in Christian school when Chris was a kindergartener and Jeremiah was a second grader.Ã‚Â This has been a solid, loyal friendship all of these years – through thick and thin!
I have seen GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hand in JeremiahÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s development.Ã‚Â In recent months, Jeremiah went with my family and with some of our staff to the Values Voter Summit in Washington DC.Ã‚Â He was moved by the presentations and discussions of so many conservative movers and shakers!
Jeremiah recently told me: Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve hoped that one day Chris (my youngest son) and I could serve in ministry together.Ã¢â‚¬Â Chris is excited about the prospects and is praying as well.
Jeremiah is a young man who has a servantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s heart and who learned how to work, serve, volunteer, do the Ã¢â‚¬Å“dirtyÃ¢â‚¬Â work – the behind the scenes work.
So why am I seeking 400 people to give $250? Because I am looking for GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s anointing on this ministry going ahead into the future.Ã‚Â I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to bring Jeremiah into this work only to have to let him go a year from now due to a lack of funding.Ã‚Â Strong support in response to this request will send the message that you are committed to our ministry into the future despite the moral slide that is all around us.
By adding Jeremiah after adding Chris last year in September 2009, we would have two committed Christian young men whose gifts complement each other significantly!
Jeremiah would bring technology and artistic skills, as well as speaking skills. Jeremiah is well grounded in the Bible!Ã‚Â We have discussed getting into churchesÃ‚Â and speaking to youth and others regarding the need to Ã¢â‚¬Å“pursue holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.Ã¢â‚¬ÂÃ‚Â [Hebrews 12:14].Ã‚Â My hope is that Chris and Jeremiah can team together in going out and warning, exhorting, encouraging their age group and younger to Ã¢â‚¬Å“guard their hearts.Ã¢â‚¬Â
We could just ignore thisÃ‚Â passionate expression of interest from Jeremiah.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â My concern, though, is that God is doing something special here and to ignore it or put it off would be to ignore His guiding hand.
Some of you may be able to give more than $250. Some of you may not be able to give that much at this time.Ã‚Â We are prayerfully seeking support totaling $100,000 by the end of January.
At this writing, we have received gifts totaling $22,614.00 given by 115 people.
Please help propel us to our goal of $100,000 by the end of January.
