The Psalmist wrote that “I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I will sing praise to You” Psalm 138:1. That means that in good times and in bad times we stand confident in our Savior and praise Him for every blessing. We rejoice in times of suffering and even when death knocks close to our doorsteps. We are only able to do that when we remember that God always works things out for good. We are strengthened through times of adversity. As I look over the years of ministry with GOGF there have been enumerable times when I wondered how God would work it out.
However, my faith has been strengthened as I have been a witness to the faithfulness of God, to stand with us when blessings are bountiful but also when they are hard to find and things are lean. January and February are typically among those lean times when year-end giving has ceased, and many are trying to catch up from Christmas spending. No matter what you are going through in your personal life, I implore you to praise God anyhow, and obey Him with faithfulness. As you stand, you will see the salvation of the Lord. Dr. Tony Hart, President
The Brad-Ferne Hart Scholarship Fund seeks to help qualified Students who are seeking to enter into full-time Christian Service in Pastoral work, Missions, or Music. We would love to be able to help more students out of the interest earned by that fund. This will only be possible as those that are concerned about preparing the next generation of leaders make contributions designated to the Brad-Ferne Hart Memorial Scholarship Fund. Your contribution of any amount will help to build a fund that can bless needy students until Jesus comes.
YOUTH BIBLE BOWL
The bible bowl this year is approaching on Saturday April 25, 2020 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, come out 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.
Thank you for standing with us in prayer support and with your sacrificial gifts. As we approach our 60th year of ministry we are grateful for all of God’s people who have faithfully stood with us and carried this ministry into this a new generation. Please continue and know that your gifts become investments in the lives of countless who receive Christ through this ministry, thousands of Pastors who have been trained and encouraged at our conferences, orphan children that have been blessed and given a Godly upbringing, and of course the churches that have been planted in urban centers right here in the US. You can join with us now and become a Prayer Fellowship Partner by filling out the form below and let us know what you intend to do in support of the ministry. If you can only give a one-time gift we appreciate that as well.
When you send your donation of any size online, by phone, or mail, we want to say thank you by sending you a special gift, “Know Your Bible” it is a concise, easy-to-understand guide to God's Word-giving you a helpful and memorable overview of all 66 books in the Bible that can be yours when you simply ask for it. That is our way of expressing our thanks to you for your support to the ministry.
