Dear Brother or Sister in Christ:
Praise Jesus, the Prince of Peace! Thank you for your faithfulness in serving Christ through reading and sharing God’s word in One Bread One Body and for your constancy in responding to our Special Appeal last fall and throughout the year. Because of your generosity and encouragement, Presentation Ministries is able to obey the Holy Spirit as He provides the vision for this ministry to move forward in answer to the mission that Father Al Lauer, our founder, set before us.
Our many ministries continue to flourish as we take the good news of the gospel in all directions. Your sacrificial donations, both large and small, have allowed us to make our materials available in the USA, foreign countries, and globally via the Internet. We continue to hear of the manner in which God is touching lives through these materials. Progress is being made with our computer resources – enabling us to reach out to more people. God’s word is being proclaimed through radio broadcasts and the Bible telephone lines. The Guadalupe Bible College faithfully serves its many students enabling them to get deeply rooted in their faith and in Scripture.
The annual Bible Institute broke all records this year -- both in number of people who attended and in the powerful anointing of the Holy Spirit. The speakers, the teachers, the participants, and all who served were amazed and blessed by the unique opportunities to grow in their gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The Paul Jansen Discipleship Retreat Center is offering a wide variety of retreats throughout the coming year for those who wish to deepen their commitment to Christ and to grow in their ability to be disciples and make disciples. The community at the retreat center is growing steadily and strongly.
All of our teachers, editors, office personnel, mailing crews, and those who maintain the buildings – whether they give a few hours or work full time – are VOLUNTEERS. No one is paid. We retain the policy of providing our materials and resources, even the retreats and Bible Institute, for a free-will offering.
Every effort is made to control expenses and to find the most efficient way to respond to your requests. Since the cost of postage, shipping, and printing have greatly increased, our expenses have risen significantly while our donations have not. Please continue to pray for all of our needs. Pray especially for uninterrupted leadership for each of the ministries and for new workers for the harvest. Any offering you can give now or in the future in support of our ministries enables us to continue our mission in serving God and His Church. May the Lord bless you and all your loved ones in the coming holy seasons of Advent and Christmas.
