To friends of E-tem
I feel God blessed the 5 weeks of SS teaching on Biblical Basis for Multi-Ethnic Churches as I spoke here in Maranatha Baptist Church. I now have prepared more material to go out to speak if called. I also had the sessions videoed on DVD and hope that some sections can be edited for future. I spent 2 weeks on the book of Ephesians, focusing on the mystery of Jew and Gentile in one body and then God’s reasons for this. I had one lesson on the OT and one on the Model and commission of Christ for M/E churches. I emphasized that multi-ethnic people serving One God in harmony can be a testimony of the Love of God that the world can not imagine. Then yesterday I made application on where can we begin by giving examples of how to pray for the Nations, world wide, locally and the unreached people groups.
Did you know that there are immigrant people from 60 unreached people groups of the world who now live in the USA? To me this supports the ideas that if we can win the nations who have moved in around us then they can become the messengers of the Gospel to their homeland by either indirect methods of communication or possible by returning to their people with the Truth.
Ruth and I have tickets to fly Oct 8 to 31, to Canada, NJ and MD. We plan to be with Rob Elkington 4 days and visit the Indian Reservation where Ruth served. In NJ she will attend her 60th HS reunion and I hope to contact some churches in the Trenton area. In MD I plan to speak in Jim Johnson’s church, observe Ron Lindholm’s church ELS class and contact Bryan Clark and Jim Eaton. We are open to other contacts as the Lord opens, according to my stamina.
God has allowed timing for a arthroscopic knee surgery for Sept 1 with the assumption that with this minor surgery I will be free to travel 10/8
I pray that God will bless each one that focuses your efforts to befriend people of any and all Nations.
