SPECIAL MEMORIAL EDITION, Part 2

(Part 3)

“But you, O God…are the helper of the fatherless.”

(Psalm 10:14)


Pastor Nima Tshering and some
of the first children of Champa Choeling.

Dear Partners,

   Yesterday you received the first installment on my report about Pastor Nima Tshering and the children of Champa Choeling, or “Place of Love.” There was so much to report about this unique home for needy Tibetan children, that I had to send it in two segments.

CHAMPA CHOELING CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

SPECIAL MEMORIAL EDITION (Part 1)

(Part 3)

Train a child in the way he should go,

and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

(Proverbs 22:6)


Pastor Nima Tshering and the children of Champa Choleing

Dear Ministry Partners,

   It has been a number of weeks since my last report on our ongoing Children’s Ministry. Helping needy children has always been at the heart of our ministry. Even before Patt and I were married in December,1964, we worked together in a Children’s Home in Kentucky. So, helping needy children has been in our spiritual DNA from the very beginning of our marriage and ministry.

EXPERIENCING CHURCH IN THE HOSPITAL

“When He ascended on high He…gave gifts to men…
it was He who gave some to be apostles...prophets...
evangelists...pastors...teachers, to prepare God's people
for works of service,
so that the body of Christ 
may be built up...and become mature, attaining
to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ"

 (Ephesians 4:7-13)

Dear Friends & Partners,

   Now that I am home from the hospital and the elections are over, I wanted to share a few summary thoughts about my recent week at the Duke University Medical Center. Since so many of you were a faithful part of my healing team through your prayers, I wanted to share this report with all of our domestic and foreign partners at one time – which I hope will bring closure to this chapter of my life.

Dear Friends and Partners,

   Thanksgiving blessings and early Christmas Greetings to you in the love of the Lord Jesus!

   Many of you have already started shopping for those special gifts for Christmas 2016.

   Again this year, it is our prayer that you will remember a special Christmas gift for one of our national partners in the Third World. Just like the Magi traveled a long distance to present their gifts to the baby Jesus, your gift through JLPF will travel to some of the most distant corners of the kingdom of God. Many needs will be met by your love gift, and many grateful hearts will praise the Lord for your generosity!

In His Christmas love, joy and peace,

 &

THE TRIUMPH OF TRUMP

Part 2

7.  HONOR:  When I was a Boy Scout, the first thing I had to memorize was the “Boy Scout Oath.” We began every meeting by standing with the Boy Scout Salute and reciting this oath as a reminder of the “code of honor” of scouting:

“On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”
