Letter from the President of Gospel Revivals

    One of the great delights in my Christian life has been my association with the Herald of His Coming. I continue to be amazed at the response to this ministry. Thousands have written over the years, testifying to Godís work in their lives as a result of various articles or materials coming from the Herald.

    I praise God that our small staff here in Indiana can be used by Him to impact lives in over 150 countries and in many languages. Only in heaven will we have an understanding of how God has used this ministry.

    God has provided in wonderful ways through the years all that was necessary to accomplish what He desires. Many of you have been used by the Lord to be the instruments of His provision. I am grateful that you have been open to His leading.

    As we look to the future, we continue to come to God as our provider for all that is necessary to accomplish the ministry He has entrusted to us. As you know, our materials are sent free of charge to whomever requests them. You can imagine how expensive it is just to meet our monthly mailing costs. Godís means of provision has always been His people. So as we pray for provision, we also want to let you know of our needs. The costs of printing and mailing continue to rise. Currently, our expenses are higher than the amount of gifts coming in. We have no other source of funds other than that given by readers like you.

    Would you please pray about whether the Lord would have you give a special gift today or even to make a commitment for regular giving? And as you do, please try to imagine the impact that even one issue has in countries where you yourself may never be able to go. You may never be able to travel to Nigeria or India or Russia to encourage brothers and sisters there, but by your gift you can send a message of strong biblical teaching and a call to a holy life to people who may not even have a single Bible available to read.

    If you are unable to send a gift at this time, please pray for Godís provision for the Herald of His Coming. Your prayers are so important to us. And please let us know how we can be praying for you. Thanks for being a part of our extended family
