October Twenty One
Two Thousand Nine
Dear Pastor and friends,
         This past week while in a meeting in North Carolina, I read The Shadow of the Almighty by Elizabeth Elliot. Her husband, Jim, and four other missionaries were martyred in the 50’s by Aucan Indians. Jim was only twenty-eight years old, and the book contains many thoughts and principles this young man guided his life by. One recurring theme throughout the book was the following: “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” So many of us are trying to save our lives, I guess for self, that we miss out on that which is of investable value. Christ Jesus said it best, “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it” (Mark 8:35).
               Thank you so much for being such an integral part in what God is doing in our ministry. Your support, both financial and in the prayer closet, is greatly appreciated. I have been in West Virginia and North Carolina this month and will be in Kentucky and Maryland before October closes. Please pray for souls to be saved and Christians to be stirred to the point that they change.
                May God bless each and everyone who reads this is my prayer.
Your companion in grace,
Tim Green
