As we approach the end of the year and the holidays with all the celebration that surrounds them, we are reminded of the many blessings that have been showered on us. Through the pandemic and the economic turmoil that has plagued us we have seen the gracious hand of the Lord at work in our lives and in this ministry. Thanksgiving and Christmas are unique opportunities to remember how much God loves us and has sacrificed for us. It is in the context of God’s grace that we should seek to love Him and sacrifice for His kingdom in return. This holiday season won’t you commit to giving to the Lord’s work with a special gift that expresses your love for Him. I can testify that the Lord has been faithful to me and to the ministry of GOGF for these past 60 years and it is through the sacrificial gifts of the Lord’s people that He has sustained and expanded the work. Dr. Tony Hart President
Don’t Forget the children! Since the early 1970’s my grandfather and my Uncle Charles Hart began a ministry in Jamaica housing orphan boys in St. Mary’s Parish. When my Uncle Charles migrated to the US in 1975 the GOGF took the responsibility to continue that ministry. We have since helped both boys and girls in India as well as Jamaica. You can help us to support these children and see them raised in a Godly environment. Your monthly gift enables us to sustain this needed work as we seek to prepare leaders for the next generation.
If there is one area where we have seen tremendous growth, it is in the radio ministry of the Grand Old Gospel Hour. We have just about tripled the number of outlets that carry the radio program. With 147 stations and several podcast platforms, as well as websites and streaming services I am amazed to see what God has done and what I expect to see Him do in the coming year. Please pray for the continued growth of our network of stations as we seek to Proclaim the Gospel around the world for the salvation of many souls.
As travel begins to reopen, we look forward to resuming our pastoral training in developing countries where the opportunities for training do not exist as they do here in the US. My heart has been burdened for the many pastors that are seeking to obey the call on their lives but only need some training to be more effective in their ministry. We would love to have some of you join us as we go back to Africa and India and the Caribbean with the good news of the Gospel. There is plenty to do no matter what your spiritual gifts may be. So, plan on using some of that unused vacation time that piled up while you couldn’t travel and use it for the glory of God and the advancement of His kingdom. To get more information just call the office or go to the website and let us know about your interest and we will be in touch with you about the opportunities in the months ahead.
As Thanksgiving approaches, we are compelled to give God thanks for each of you who pray and give in support of this ministry. Thank you seems to be so little when your prayers and support have opened God’s hand to us in such a mighty way. As a gesture of thanks, when you send in your gift to the ministry, we will send you a copy of “The Case For Christmas” by Lee Strobel. A Journalist investigates the identity of the Child in the Manager. All you need to do is ask for it! This is our way of expressing our gratitude to you for your support. May God richly bless you as you bless His work.
