APRIL 11th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
My wife and I viewed the testimony of an American pastor who faced opposition and prejudice from his neighbors because he was born a German and was living in America with his family during WWI. He understood the issue even though his own son was drafted to fight in the American Army against Germany. He encouraged himself and his family with the thought that if Jesus endured the hatred and the suffering of the cross for us, we ought to continue to love even those who misunderstand and misrepresent us. His love won over many of those who opposed him.
I believe many people who at one time were opposed to the gospel might be more open now to the thought of God and the Gospel. They have exhausted Netflix, checked their dwindling 401K, and have struggled to find peace when God says that there is no peace for the unsaved (Is 48:22).
As Pastor Charles Wood, a mentor of mine, used to say, “People are more willing to hear than we are to tell.” I believe these words are more true right now. I would ask you to call some friends just to check on them, and then invite them to listen to the livestream for Easter. I will do my best to share the straightforward message of the Gospel.
I trust God will work in a special way this Easter.
