Update, January ’16

January 22nd, 2016

As we begin our 7th year since being on the active staff of Fellowship Bible Church we have so much to be thankful for. We’re especially thankful for you as you have faithfully prayed for us, our family and the ministries we are involved with. We are humbled and grateful for your love and grace. We would not be able to do what we do without your partnership and friendship. Thank you so much!
Probably the biggest disappointment of 2015 was the decision of Moody Radio to drop my program from WCRF in Cleveland. That’s where we started our radio outreach about 30 years ago. For those who miss the program being aired in Cleveland or wherever you live, it’s available in both audio and print by clicking on the archives link on the upper right corner.
On the positive side, a number of stations have added the program to their schedule in various parts of the US and overseas. In addition, another language has been added to our outreach, Russian. Bible Broadcast Network, which carries my program in English and Spanish, webcasts the program in Russian, and they added two of my books to the curriculum of their Bible School on the Web, which has over 4000 students. The program is released daily, Monday through Friday, over 400 times somewhere in the world.
In addition, I will be preaching at least 4 times in the first three months of 2016. I’m looking forward to that. Otherwise Mur continues to teach in her women’s Bible class which has met for over 25 years, and I meet regularly with men over breakfast or lunch, encouraging them to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2nd Peter 3:18).
We are doing well, as are the members of our extended family of 31. Thanks for your continued prayers and partnership. God bless, Lud and Mur
PS: I’d like to encourage you to read, review and even memorize 2nd Peter 1:1-11 throughout this year.
