A lot has been happening here since my last post. I have been receiving several request from different countries to lead them in Bible Studies. Three of these countries are China, Japan and Africa and there are others countries that have expressed interest as well. This has been very humbling as well as leaving me in a state of re-examining a lot of things. I never saw myself in an international ministry, let alone leading it.
After much prayer and waiting on the Lord, as well as counseling with my pastor and church leaders, I have come to believe that this is from the Lord and so I am following His leading as I understand it. Perhaps the most notable adjustment I have made is that I am now producing training videos that I will be posting on You tube. This action has required an investment into software to make these videos and then I have spent untold hours learning how to use it. I have begun a study on Spiritual Reality. It is a series of 6 lessons from the Bible that identifies the necessity of our passing through 3 worlds before we enter our final destination we call heaven. It also identifies the spiritual senses that enable us to interact in the spiritual world.
The first lesson is broken into two videos and the first video is nearing completion and will be posted in the near future. I will post its availability as soon as it has been finished.
These are training videos and require commitment of study and work beyond just watching the video. Entertainment is not my goal but I try to make them interesting and rewarding.
One of the ways that the Lord has shown me that this is His working and not mine is that it was not my idea to start with. Additionally, He has provided multiple people to assist in this endeavor, such as a man who has his own ministry and is making Christian videos as I am, who incidentally has the exact same software and lives very close. He said he is helping because this is an important work. I sent out a preliminary copy of the first video to a number of people I know and requested them to critique it and I got back multiple pages of insights and suggestions. No one was overly complimentary nor were they critical. I really appreciated their honesty, responsiveness and candor. These are but a few of the ways that the Lord has made it clear that He is the one doing it and it is not me directing it. Please pray that I stay close to Him and simply follow His leading.
I plan to continue this website however my post may not be as often as they were in the past. In addition to this website, I now have a channel on You Tube and I will share that with you as I begin to post these studies on it.
Thank you for your prayers and I hope that you will continue to remember me as we lanunch into this new venture of faith.
