Then Moses climbed Mt. Nebo…across from Jericho.
There the Lord showed him the whole land — from … Dan
(in the north) … all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean
(in the west), the Negev (the desert in the south) and the whole region from the
Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms (in the east).

Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath
to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said,
‘I will give it to your descendants.’

Deuteronomy 34:1-4a

Dear Friends and Family,

   Last fall, JLPF and FTH planned to join together and go on a Holy Land trip over Easter week this year. J.L. was going to be the teaching leader and Joseph would guide us through prayer-walking and film various locations for future releases. But, when J.L. died, we thought maybe we were supposed to cancel the whole idea.

STEP BY STEP

All the way my Saviour leads me; What have I to ask beside?

Can I doubt His tender mercy Who through life has been my Guide?

Heavenly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell!

For I know, what-e’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well;

For I know, what-e’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.

(Words by Fanny Crosby; a hymn from my childhood)

Dear Friends,

   The continued outpouring of love and support for my family and me has been overwhelming and comforting. We are very grateful for your calls, hugs, cards, emails, offers to help and on-going prayers. It is a blessing to be a part of the loving body of Christ.

   Grief is a different kind of journey. For me, life is all mixed together, like the sweet presence of our great Comforter, in the midst of the sadness and longing for J.L. Each morning I awaken to the challenge of accepting the reality that he is gone. And each evening I can trace God’s guiding Holy Spirit throughout every part of my day.

THE FRUIT OF PARTNERSHIPS

"The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
planted in the house of the Lord,
they will flourish in the courts of our God.
They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green..."
(Psalm 92:12-14)

 


Bishop Sundar Singh, Bishop Ezra Sargunam and
J. L. pray for a fruitful harvest in the ECI garden
outside Chennai.

Dear Friends and Partners,

   Although I know I don’t have to apologize for this short email report, it still seems strange to send one that’s so different from J.L.’s – the master of a few thousand well-chosen words with an equal amount of pictures! But, it will be better for me to send shorter ones as we get reports from our overseas partners.

A TIME TO BUILD

“…a time to build…”  Ecc. 3:3b

”…each one should be careful how he builds.

For no one can lay any foundation other

than the one already laid, which is

Christ Jesus.” I Cor. 3:10b-11


J. L. and Evangelist Yaw Asante.

Dear Friends and Partners,

   We want to continue to share with you about more projects that J.L. had set in motion late last year. This completed project was done in partnership with Evangelist Yaw Asante, from Kumasi, Ghana, whom we have reported on before. He and J.L. first met in 1983 at the Billy Graham Conference for Itinerate Evangelists in Amsterdam. Over the years, they ministered together in pastors’ conferences and seminars, self-support and building projects, and agricultural endeavors.
