Excited in the Lord - Day 9

Today was a pretty exciting day. Not for any one particular reason, but for just a lot of small reasons.

I was finally feeling better after two days of being sick, and all through the day I continued to feel better and better.

I had a great meeting this morning with an old family friend and I was encouraged by the way the meeting went, and by his responses to our conversation about SONlight. It also appears that I may have another door opened for another church and to share at a prayer meeting.

I also really enjoyed putting the March newsletter together, and I am praying and hoping that as people get it they would prayerfully consider how to help me meet my goals in raising support for SONlight. I am asking for three different ways for people to help, and I am excited to see what kind of responses we will get.

I had a 5-Minute message broadcast tonight that I was particularly pleased with as it described much of what I have been feeling inside over the past month. And then just a few hours after it was broadcast I had someone requesting a copy of it. (It is always encouraging to have someone request a copy of a message.) Take a moment to listen to it and tell me what you think...

But I am really excited about a conversation I had with the Executive Director of Need Him Resources. Need Him has a media ministry that reaches out via radio, TV, You Tube, and in other ways, and it provides 24-hour volunteers answering the phone at 1-888-Need-Him. It was confirmed that SONlight can include this phone number in our 60-second evangelism messages.

I am most excited about this because it moves our messages to a new level of effectiveness, as anyone that hears the messages can now call that number to speak to someone about how to come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Day 9
Pray that I would be able to catch up with my enormous to do list that got really backed up while I was sick.

Pray that people would respond well to the requests for help in the monthly newsletter.

Continue to pray also that the Lord would prepare and soften people’s hearts for the financial support of SONlight.
