Acknowledgements - Additional Scriptures - Contact Us Information Below

I would like to thank several people for their help and inspiration for this website. First, I want to thank my partner Glenn who helped me in looking up scriptures, for giving me the loving consideration of the time and space needed to write and supporting me with words of encouragement. I want to thank my mother and her inspiring love for Jesus. As a ministry leader, together with her courageous husband, she has bravely gone on many missionary outreaches throughout the world for the past 20 years, spreading the good news of the gospel and reaching people for Christ. I want to thank my Christian friends, those still living on earth and those now living in heaven, who have taught me so much, whom I will always love dearly. I want to thank our Lord Jesus Christ who always gives me new revelations in writing and who gave me the most precious gift that has ever been given, his life in the forgiveness of my sins.

I have chosen three more scriptures, one about overcoming obstacles, one regarding thoughts and the last from Jesus in some of his final words in the last book of the Bible, Revelations.

2 Corinthians 6:4-10* "Rather as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine yet regarded as imposters; known yet regarded as unknown; dying and yet we live on; beaten and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor yet making many rich; having nothing yet possessing everything."

Philippians 4: 8* "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things."

Revelations 22:12* "Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."

*NIV

For years we have been ministering to the homeless with "homeless baggies"  containing food and cleanliness items plus a printed salvation message and a bit of money.   Over time, we have given out many hundreds of baggies. We hope people have to come to know the Lord through this "homeless baggie" outreach! Any donations will be used 100%, with honor and gratitude, in ministry work for our Lord, such as that outreach and other ministry expenses.  However, donations, are not at this time, tax-deductible.
