Matthew 6:13 for THINE is the kingdom…

A pastor in Nigeria lost his wife and children violently in a time of tribal war. Not unlike today in Nigeria. Above this pastor’s desk is simple a plaque saying; “The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21…That guy would be my pastor if I lived near his church. He has it figured out! I need that!

It’s all God’s…. the sooner we figure that out the better.

In a term which is more applicable to Americans, a well know pastor has a habit of lifting up his ministry bills when he gets them in the mail and says ‘Jesus, you got mail!!!’ The Lord gives and takes away. It is all on Him. 1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV: “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

It’s all God’s. The good and the bad. The sweet things and the tormentuous things, not just in ministry or missions, but in everything everyone has. Even those things that atheists have. It’s all God’s. We live in His Kingdom, His domain. Satan is the deadbeat abusive ‘renter’ for the time being, but God is the creator. He is the owner. Whether we believe it or not.

An old joke goes like this;

Scientists thought they found out how to create life, so they called God and said, ‘we can now create life so we don’t need you anymore’. God said, ‘prove it!’. The scientists said, ‘ok’, and they stooped down and put a pinch of dirt in a test tube’. God said ‘oh no you don’t! Make your own dirt!’

Sooner or later it’s time for all of us to say ‘It’s all YOURS God’. He is the owner of your life. Rebelious kids angrily say, ‘it’s my life!’. They couldn’t be more wrong. We are not owners of anything. When we have a blessing (wife, kids, job, car, house, ministry etc), we have to remember that it is all on loan. Nothing is permanent and God can repossess it without warning, at any moment. It is a good thing to remember that and appreciate those things while you have them. When it’s time to lose that blessing that God has lent you, don’t be mad, but be thankful for the time you had it.

Bad things as well. Thank God in the bad times for the good things that come out of it (which ALWAYS happens). Always understand that the battle belongs to the Lord.

2 Chronicles 20:16 Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s

—–PROGRESS ON THE WINNER HOME—–
There really hasn’t been much 😞, especially under ‘My Timeline’. Sometimes I wonder if I heard from God correctly. Again, the burden is on God, not on me.

It’s all about finances. The will is there ( both ours and the Lord’s as expressed in His written Word). However, we need a drastic increase in funds (over and above our already existing ministry expenses, which is a lot!) to make the necessary additions and improvements BEFORE we can even present it to the government. If we are destitute the government would be crazy to let us bring in kids to live with us.

We will need more staff (minimum 2 full time employees more) to do this (by law and for legal protection). We also need to show (1) sufficient income perpetually (an average over the past three months, about double what we are bringing in now. (2) An adequate vehicle. (3) A Nice Room for the children to live in.

We need to ‘sell’ this dream to the skeptical government. From some of these types if ‘homes’ in the past that we have personally seen, the government has good reasons to be cautious. The philosophy ‘bring in the kids and the money will follow’ is reckless, dangerous, exploitive and presumptuous.’ Good for television, not for real life on the mission field though.

Our goal WAS to have kids living here by my birthday in June 21, but it’s looking less and less realistic. That’s my date, but maybe not God’s. That’s the day I am officially retired according by social security standards. Lord willing I will be getting $1,290 a month, so that will really help PureHeart to step up the game. Retirement is a worldly term to me, not a Christian term. I will take the retirement money to help, not stop this labor of love.

We need large donations of money, materials and labor to get the home ready. We also need a different vehicle, and a steady increase in donations to provide for 5 or six more people (basically another young family).

STEP 1 is COMPLETED! Praise God!

Once we get the money we will move onto Step 2 but right now we are below broke from our normal day to day operations staring us in the face; God willing, we will get past this soon. We need a huge miracle and even more prayer.

Step 2. Installing a downstairs warehouse to hold everything from the warehouse which is now upstairs.

Step 3. Once the warehouse is cleaned out, we will put in a window up stairs, walls and another bathroom, thus turning the warehouse into a large dormitory for the girls.

4. We just found out by government that we will need a larger vehicle. Our 14 year old tucscon is on it ‘s last leg, and won’t legally hold Winnie and I and 5 girls. So we have to have a van.

Once all of that is done we are ready to bring in the little girl toddlers. Pray with us in the selection process of which little girls we will bring in. It will take time and we need to raise a lot to of money to do this (est overall expenses will be a little over 17,100 dollars PLUS 15,000 for a good used van, and also keeping on paying our 4000+ p/m basic operating expenses which will increase with housing 6-7 more people when the construction is completed) That needs to be another $1000 a month permanently. (so we need a steady month donation base of $5,000 a month)

Thats what the Lord we believe showed us, but we are always open to opinions and advice! Like I said, we could be wrong, but that’s the feeling that we get.

thank you once again!

Mateo 6:13 porque Tuyo es el reino …

Un pastor en Nigeria perdió a su esposa e hijos violentamente en tiempos de guerra tribal. Encima del escritorio de este pastor hay una simple placa que dice: “Jehová dio, y Jehová quitó; Bendito sea el nombre del Señor. ”Job 1:21 Ese tipo sería mi pastor si viviera cerca de su iglesia. ¡Lo tiene entendido! ¡Necesito eso!

Todo es de Dios … cuanto antes lo descubramos lo mejor. En un término que es más aplicable a los estadounidenses, un pastor bien conocido tiene la costumbre de levantar sus facturas del ministerio cuando las recibe por correo y dice “¡¡¡Jesús, tienes correo para ti !!”

Todo es de Dios. El bueno y lo malo. Las cosas más dulce y las cosas mas tormentosas, no solo en el ministerio, sino en todo lo que todos tienen. Incluso esas cosas que tienen los ateos.

Todo es de Dios. Vivimos en su reino, su dominio. Satanás es el “inquilino” abusivo y por el momento, pero Dios es el creador. Él es el dueño.

Una broma dice así; Los científicos pensaron que descubrieron cómo crear vida, así que llamaron a Dios y dijeron: ahora podemos crear vida para que ya no te necesitemos más. Dios dijo: ‘¡Pruébalo!’. Los científicos dijeron: ‘bueno y se recogieron y pusieron una pizca de tierra en un vaso. Dios dijo ‘oh no! ¡Haz tu propia tierra!

Tarde o temprano, es hora de que todos digamos ‘Todo es tuyo Dios’. Él es el dueño de tu vida.

Los niños rebeldes enojados dicen: ‘¡Es mi vida!’. No podrían estar más equivocados. No somos dueños de nada. Cuando tenemos una bendición (esposa, hijos, casa, ministerio, etc.), debemos recordar que todo lo que tenemos está en préstamo. Nada es permanente y Dios puede recuperarlo en cualquier momento. Es bueno recordar eso y apreciarlo. Cuando sea el momento de perder esa cosa que Dios nos ha prestado, no te enojes, sino agradece el tiempo que la tuviste con ella. Cosas malas también. Agradezca a Dios por las cosas malas porque las buenas cosas salen de ella como consecuenia (SIEMPRE suceden), pero entienda que la batalla pertenece al Señor.

2 Crónicas 20:16 Así te dice el Señor: No temas ni desmayes por causa de esta gran multitud; Porque la batalla no es tuya, sino de Dios.
