Tidings From Chaplain Ted:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. Philippians 1:2-5
As we begin 2018 it is with the expectation that God is going to continue working in the evangelism and discipleship of our guests. While the media says that giving to charitable organizations is going to be down because of the new tax law, we trust God.
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:10
This is His ministry, and we believe He will continue to sustain it by using His people in doing so. I am so thankful for all of you and especially for those of you who give monthly. It is a huge help in paying our monthly bills. For example, I’ve already noticed what the cold temperatures have done to our heating bills.
Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.” 2 Timothy 2:19
I am going to ask you to purposely include the Columbus and Living Water Rescue Mission in your giving plan for 2018, and that you would consider us in your estate planning. More than once God has been faithful at just the right time using a dear brother or sister’s estate that included us.
Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
You will have an abundance of opportunities to give to many wonderful organizations this year. When you consider giving to us, please know that the Mission is committed to the gospel of Jesus and the teaching of His written Word with no apology or compromise. This is not an agency.
How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O LORD, they walk in the light of Your countenance. Psalm 89:15
Praise the Lord!
