Two Thousand Eleven
Dear Pastor and Friends:
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” (Psa. 133:1). Here David exclaimed the blessing and benefit of brethren being united. Today, we often bemoan the sad curse of our disunity. Men seem to be more loyal to their “crowd” or an extra-biblical creed than they are to Christ! We have allowed walls to be built with the untempered mortar of carnality, critical spirits and cuttingly caustic slights that divide brother from brother and friend from friend. Would to God that a spirit of reconciliation would spread across our land like the wind blows the leaves in the fall, and bring revival.
I am consumed this month in revivals. Please pray that God would give us souls and that God’s people would be wholly restored to a right relationship with Him. I preached a two-week meeting in Tennessee and we enjoyed several nights of conviction and a real revival spirit. I am in West Virginia now. Please pray for the pastor and his wife (Don and Linda Dillon) as they were in a head-on collision two days before the meeting and she is still hospitalized. I will be in four-day meetings in Indiana and Maryland to close out the month.
Sandy and I thank you for your faithful encouragement to our home and ministry. Both of us have health issues we are dealing with and we covet your prayers for complete recovery. (I think my problems may be due to my advancing age – I don’t know about hers!) Our love and esteem is unwavering for all of you that have a part in helping us do God’s will. God bless you!
