February Update

Dear ministry partner:

Cindy and I want to thank you for all the prayers and support you have given to First Love Ministries the past 24 years. We are so blessed to be called of God and to be your partner in doing God’s work and building His kingdom. I enclose as a praise report and also an act of accountability a report showing year by year the total income of the ministry, the salary I have taken and what has been invested in missions. After looking at this report, people often ask how we survived. The bottom line is we were called of God, he provided and Cindy had a great job. I look at those years as proving years and, to be honest, loved them. You will also notice we just went over the two million dollar mark in investment in missions.  THANK YOU for your partnership in ministry.

When you receive this letter I will be in India with Jerry and LaDonna Gano and Tom Loftus. I know it will be a miracle trip and they will have many exciting stories to tell of all God did through our lives on this trip. We will be ministering in Bangalore and Kolkata, visiting our FLM pastors and visiting all the MARU Projects and girls homes we have in India. It is my 19th trip to India. Please look for reports and pictures on Facebook. Please pray for us as we travel. I have fourteen flights in the next thirty days. Please also remember our loved ones at home.

It is our goal to build 10 churches this year around the world. Pray about your involvement through sponsoring a child, educating a young man or woman for the ministry, helping build a church or investing in one of our Home Mission Projects.
