Update on answered prayer, plus some requests

September 29th, 2016

We are back from celebrating my special birthday with our kids, some of our grandkids and great grandkids!!! What a special time we had together. Note pictures attached.
Over Labor Day Weekend we were in Concord, NC with Debbie and Tammi and their families. We played, ate great food and shared with one another. Then, the next weekend Greg and Jeff flew me out to CO for a few days of golf, food and sharing in the beautiful mountain setting of Breckenridge. What precious memories, a reminder of abundant, accumulated answers to prayer. Mur and I agree with the apostle John: “We have no greater joy than to know that our children are walking in the truth” (3 John 4). Thank God with us for His blessings.
We would appreciate prayer for the process of expanding our radio outreach. Teams are working on translating our program into Russian, Korean, Japanese and Chinese. This in addition to the ongoing production of our English and Spanish outreach. By the first of 2017 the program should be going out in all these languages daily. The programs over the next two years will be designed to encourage and guide listeners to read through the Bible in two years. Pray that many would join in this project and I trust you will consider participating yourself.
Related to this, we would ask you to thank God for all He has done over the years through this radio outreach. He has provided through some of you so that we could do this. All of you are a part of this outreach through prayer. We would encourage you to pray that God would enlarge the support base, and if you feel led to participate in supporting the ministry financially please let us know. Make checks out to Getting God’s Message and send them to Lud at 9584 Kinsman Rd., Novelty, OH 44072 or click on the Donate link. If you have questions, let us know.
God has opened up the following opportunities to share His Word. Please pray for me and these churches: October 2, Chester Baptist Church; October 9 & 16, Cornerstone (our sister church), October 23 & 30, Christ Community Church of Willoughby.
