Monthly Partner Letter – November
As a ministry, normally when we give out it is through money. And we did do that in October as well. However, much of our giving out was physical labor. I have never seen a year like this. It seemed every day someone was needing help preparing for winter in some way.
We spent days picking up walnuts out of an eighty-year-old widow’s yard, so she wouldn’t fall on them.
We spent a day splitting, chopping and stacking wood for another couple to prepare for their heat in the winter.
We spent several days handing out Winter Blessing Bags to the needy and the homeless.
It was indeed a month of giving out. But we were not alone.
Whatever we were giving out – you were there with us. Each time we labored in love, I prayed that God would give you a harvest on the seeds of giving out that we were sowing that day.
We are in covenant, partners, what I do, you do. For you help empower us to do it. For that, and for each person served, I want to say thank you! Thank you! May God remember your giving to Him and grant you a tremendous harvest!
Acts 20:35 says; In everything, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus Himself: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
The word blessed means empowered to prosper. Each time we give, collectively, we are empowered to prosper.
As I pondered on this today, I thought of the many seeds we, you and I, have in the ground.
For the Winter Blessing Bags, we have seed in the ground in Tennessee, in Texas and in West Virginia. Not only in one city in Tennessee, but in many.
We have word seed in the ground. It is sown daily from this ministry. If you ever need to hear a word from God, remember your seed in the ground and call forth your harvest. You have word seed in the ground in almost every state in the United States of America, as well as other countries.
You have financial seed in the ground. As we give, you give. May God richly bless ALL our seed this very month.
Finally, we have winter preparation seed in the ground. I bless that seed and declare you will be warm, filled and fed all winter long, with absolutely NO lack in any area in Jesus name. And nothing will cause you to fall.
Thank you again for all you do to help us give out…one of the most humbling things for me in the month of October came through the Winter Blessing Bags.
We would hand out the bags and bless the people, then as we drove away, I could look back and see them going through the bags. The excitement on their face was absolutely priceless. The wonder expressed as they pulled out each thing was so humbling to me. We not only gave items needed for winter, we gave joy. We gave excitement. It was beautiful to watch. I thank God that I was a small part of that. You, too, were a part of that. I know it touched the heart of God. You could see the love of God on their faces.
Please keep us in your prayers this month as we continue to give out. November and December are our most giving months usually. We will be helping with Thanksgiving meals and Christmas blessings in the next few weeks. We will also be handing out more Winter Blessing Bags each week throughout the winter. We appreciate your prayers. And we appreciate your financial support for this ministry.
Today, I ask you pray and seek God about what He would have you to give this month. We bless your seed right now and thank God for empowering you to prosper through the winter season…He is a good and faithful Father.
May all your giving this year, reach its tipping point this day, as you sow your monthly seed. May it pour over into overflow in your life and the lives of those around you…may you be extremely blessed beyond what you could think, ask or imagine. This is our prayer for you.
With much love and gratefulness…
