America, Will We Go?

The Bible tells us in Romans 10:14-15(quoted below) that there are many around the world calling on Jesus and they don't even know it.  "What do you mean?" you may say,  "how can someone call on a God they do not even know?"  People all over the world are crying out for hope, redemption, and to be close to God because they are all created in His image.  They are trying to get to God in so many false ways that leave them empty.  What we have been seeing is the fact that as we go, preach The Good News of Jesus Christ, sharing His love in many different ways, many of these hungry people are completely opened to Jesus.  They want to know about the only One that has died for their sins, they want to know about how to truly find Peace, and they want to know that they can be sure of their future with Him.  "How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed?  And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?  And how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" I am thankful for each and every one of you that have sacrificed to send our teams around the world during this past year.  We have seen many come to faith in Jesus Christ.  We have seen God heal many broken hearts, physical bodies, and deliver many oppressed by the devil.  I give God glory in all of this and I am also thankful for your partnership in the Gospel.  Almost every day I get more invitations of Christians suffering around the world asking us to come and help them.  By going this opens doors to share Christs' love and help build these local churches.  I am always so humbled being around men and women of God who are undergoing extreme persecution and opposition, and yet their faith and focus challenges me to press forward.  We have been so blessed in America.  Freedom to go to church, to read the Bible, to pray, to witness for Him.  I believe one of the reasons God has blessed America so much is because it is His desire to use us in His end-time harvest of souls around the world.  America has always been a missionary sending nation, will we continue in this?  God will hold us all accountable one day for what we did with all the blessings and freedoms He gave to us.  He expects us to give away all that He has given us.  To hold this all for ourselves, not thinking of our Brothers and Sisters around the world is a dangerous thing.  So I thank each of you that continue with us by praying, by giving, by going so that others may know of His great, immeasurable love.  That He loved us so much that He gave everything for you and for me.  How could we ever out-give God.  It is impossible.  May God Bless You today, and as we enter this new season celebrating and thanking God for all He has done, let us remember those that have yet to experience The greatest Gift of all, Jesus Christ.
