Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praise Jesus our Lord!
Thanks for obeying and loving the Lord! That is the best thing you can do for anyone. Thanks for praying for us and giving sacrificially to God's work through your donations to Presenta¬tion Ministries. If we give our all, the Lord will multiply it.
You might be picking up this book thinking: how can I take care of all the things I have to do and still somehow make it to heaven? Instead, ask yourself: am I following God's will in doing all the things I am doing? If you are, then you have your answer. If you aren't, you might want to change your priorities. God wants us to be in heaven with him and died on the cross to cleanse us from our sin (1 John 1:7). But we need to respond to Jesus' call by denying to ourselves and taking up our cross and following Him (Matt 16:24) and by praying always (1 Th 5:17).
Our annual retreat for small Christian communities will be held Oct 20-21 at St Antoninus Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. If you are hearing God's call to build community, you are invited. For more information, call (513) 662-JESU.
Tuesday, Nov 21 is our patronal feast day in honor of Our Lady of Presentation. We will celebrate our twenty-third anniversary with 7:30 PM Mass at St Antoninus Church in Cincinnati. Join us, or be with us in Spirit, as we pray together.
We continue building a new community at the discipleship retreat center in Peebles Ohio. If you feel called to a life of service, please call Betty Orlando at (937) 587-5464 to learn more about the retreat center and what you can do to serve the Lord in providing retreats.
You can listen to our Daily Bread radio program on our website
Thanks for all the work you do for Jesus and His Church in spreading the gospel of Jesus, sharing these booklets, and helping Presentation Ministries spread the gospel. We want to especially thank the full-time workers of Presentation Ministries. They have worked for years without any payment in order to proclaim God's word to the ends of the earth. Thanks for working, praying, and fasting for God's kingdom to come!
Your Brothers in Jesus,
George Schmidl, Jerry Cappel, and Mark Schuermann
