Psalm 130 is a wonderful expression of patience and trust in the Lord while His people were waiting for redemption and blessing. It reminds us that deliverance begins with the patient prayers of trust in God. It is just as applicable today as we face so many challenges in our lives, in our families, in our ministries, and in our world. No matter what you are facing remember what this Psalm is teaching. In Him is abundant redemption. This is an encouragement to me as we face the challenges of ministry over the next several months. Please join me in prayer for all that God is leading us through and for not only the financial needs to be met but for there to be fruit that remains as we obey.

Youth Bible Bowl
The bible bowl this year is approaching on Saturday April 6, at 3pm, and will be held at the Germantown Christian Assembly, 610 E. Mt. Pleasant Ave. Philadelphia, Pa. I am so proud of the work that our teens put into learning the passages and how well they are prepared to answer the questions put to them. When so many teens are biblically illiterate and leaving the church thank God that He has a remnant of teens that still love the Lord and study His word. If you can make it to cheer our young people on you are more than welcome. If you are unable to make it, please pray for our youth as they will be the ones to reach this next generation.
Leaving A Legacy
Once a year I like to remind our prayer partners that it is important to not only be faithful in our regular support of the ministry, but to also remember the work of the Lord in our wills and estate planning. Most Christians ignore this vital aspect of our good stewardship. It is important that you take care of your family as well as provide for God’s work. Many believers feel that it is only for wealthy people with large estates but even ten percent of an insurance policy given to the Ministry becomes a big blessing. In addition, the circumstances of your death may create a large estate even if you never had much during your life. Please consider talking to a Christian attorney and make sure that you have a will that honors the Lord. If you need help just call our office and would be glad to help in any way we can.
We are so grateful to God for raising up those of you who faithfully stand with us and support this ministry. As each of us obey the call of God on our lives, whether that means going, supporting, or praying, God will supply the needs. We are offering a gift to all of you who make a donation this month of a book that makes a wonderful gift for mother’s and father’s day as they approach. When you click, call, or mail your gift of any amount just ask for the offer of the book The Parent Map by Harold Sala? And we will send it right out to you. Thank you again for all your faithful prayers and support!
We look forward to hearing from you soon. Remember also to let us know how we can pray for you when we gather each Wednesday for our staff meetings and go before the Lord in prayer. Many have written or called in request have been blessed and encouraged.
