A MAN FROM INDIANA WHO REQUESTED A COPY OF AN EARLY DRAFT OF
THE MANUSCRIPT OF THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF THE LIVING WORD
OF GOD SAID THAT HE CANNOT DESCRIBE THE POWER HE FEELS FROM
READING THIS BOOK. This man said, "The manuscript of The Supernatural Power of the
Living Word of God truly has been a blessing. I am glad that you let us have a sneak preview.
The Holy Spirit continues to rain wisdom on you to rightly divide His Word. Your passion for God’s
Word is evident in all of your books, but this book takes it to the next level. I cannot describe the
power I feel from reading this book as it pulls the blinders off to reveal the real power of God’s
Word. The Supernatural Power of the Living Word of God truly is indescribable. You are able to
tap into that power by defining and explaining God's Word with such detail and simplicity. You
have used your gift wisely. My prayers will continue to be with you."
A MAN FROM NIGERIA SAID THAT QUIET CONFIDENCE IN THE LORD
PROVIDED HIM WITH THE SOLUTION TO THE CRISIS HE WAS FACING.
Stephen Peter Ayiya from Kakuri-Kaduna in Nigeria said, “Thank you for the gift of the two books
you sent me. I have received many spiritual blessings from studying Quiet Confidence in the Lord.
This book is what medical personnel call ‘first aid.’ It provided me with the solution to a crisis I am
facing. It has helped me to draw closer to the Lord. I am learning the value of quiet time with the
Lord. I am holding tightly to the promises from the Word of God that are contained in this book. I
know that I will see God resolve this crisis. I wish your ministry great success. May God help you
to fulfill your vision."
A MAN FROM ENGLAND WHO HAS STUDIED THE BIBLE FOR 41 YEARS SAYS
THAT HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE IS A GEM. Godfried Geyevu of Welling, Kent in the
United Kingdom is so enthusiastic about our books and Scripture Meditation Cards that he is
working diligently to distribute our publications in the United Kingdom. Godfried recently sent us
an email saying, "Your book, How to Study the Bible, is a gem. Since I became a Christian 41
years ago I have studied the Bible using a variety of methods. Your method is simple and
straightforward. It involves hard work, but the rewards are real. I have read several of your books
and this book is the one I would highly recommend to any Christian because this book is the
foundation. God bless you, brother".
A WOMAN FROM PENNSYLVANIA SAID THAT TRUST GOD FOR YOUR
FINANCES OPENED HER EYES TO GOD'S BLESSINGS. This woman said, "I
borrowed Trust God for Your Finances from a friend and found it so inspiring that I wanted my own
copy. I read this book out loud to fill our new home with God's Word and to proclaim His promises
with my mouth. I started memorizing the Word to write it on the tablet of my heart as I meditate on
it night and day. Thank you both for your trust and obedience to the Lord. You have opened our
eyes to His blessings. May God pour out His richest blessings on you and your family."
Comments on the progress of our next book. I am very enthusiastic about the progress of
our next book, The Supernatural Power of the Living Word of God. Draft #4 has been completed
and we are making steady progress on Draft #5. This draft will be approximately 90% of what the
finished product will be. We believe that this book will go to the printer in May or June. If anyone
would like a draft of this manuscript, please let us know. If you have any comments on what you
read, would you be willing to send them to us so that others will be helped?
An update on our continuing relationship with evangelist Jack Malone and his ministry in
the Philippines: Judy and I first met Rev. Jack Malone at a Christmas party at our church in
December of 2002. As the weeks went by and we developed a closer relationship with Jack, we
could clearly see that the Lord wanted us to work with him on his upcoming move to the
Philippines to establish a ministry there.
We spent many hours helping Jack to prepare for this major undertaking. On April 4, 2003 Jack
landed in the Philippines with a heart full of love and an excitement that he could not contain.
Even though he did not have enough money to get this ministry off the ground and he did not have
a church or a denomination supporting him, Jack set out to do whatever he could for the Lord
Since that time more than 321,000 (!!!!) Filipinos have answered Jack’s call to pray a prayer of
repentance to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Sometimes Jack holds crusades in
large stadiums. Other times he goes to primitive rural areas that have no electricity. Jack’s
schedule is filled to overflowing each week. His ministry is very fruitful.
Our relationship with Jack has been ongoing. We have kept in contact with him through an
average of approximately 6 emails a month during the last four years. The following are comments
from one of Jack’s recent monthly newsletters:
"I have spent 38 years in different assignments the Lord has laid on my heart. I have been a
pastor, an evangelist, singer, businessman, motivational speaker and now a missionary. If I had to
do it all over again, I can tell you that without exception I would have been a missionary. If I had it
to do all over again, I would have come to the Philippines 38 years ago.

Email: firstname.lastname@example.org • Internet Website: www.lamplight.net
We have seen more response, more excitement, more sincerity and more commitment in the
Philippines than in the previous 34 years of ministry. The people in the Philippines are not gospelhardened. These people are not judgmental the way that many people are in America.
I never thought I would go to a mosquito-infested, hot Third World country. I knew what it was like
to live in a rich fashion. I had a big leather couch and a big screen TV, all of the remote control
devices, an unlimited cell phone and a Cadillac. All of these things are gone now and I don't regret
giving them up.
If I had it to do all over again, I would sit down with the squatters who do not own the land that they
build a cardboard and grass building on. I would sit down and eat their meager rice and the fish
that I hate. I would do it again and again.
The real joys of life are not in things - cars, houses, money and sports. The real joy in life is
serving the Lord. In the Philippines the danger warning is at its highest level ever. A visiting friend
said, 'Aren't you afraid that you might get shot at?'. I don't have time to be afraid. I don't have time
to hide. Even the roughest of men raise their hands to accept the precious Jesus I tell them
If you would like to support this extremely productive ministry, please indicate your desire on the

Will you help us to help others? We continue to face significant financial challenges. Our
checking account balance is very low as I write these words. We have many loyal supporters of
our ministry, but we often face a cash shortfall because we do not have enough monthly partners
to even approach meeting our fixed monthly expenses.
As a result, we experience many financial peaks and valleys. Please pray about sending us a
substantial contribution to help us at this time. Would you also pray about becoming a monthly
partner of our ministry? Thank you and God bless you.
I invite you to visit India Gospel Fellowship with me. Since 1997 when God ordained that Pastor
Ebenezer and I would meet, Pastor Ebenezer and I have envisioned a yearly short-term mission
trip to India in January of 2008. The purpose of the trip is to open the eyes of the travelers to what
God is doing through India Gospel Fellowship as well as to gain a burden for the souls of the one
billion people who live in India. Pastor Ebenezer teaches the principles of Trust God for Your
Finances. We are trusting God for funds to reprint the Tamil translation which he already has
taught to more than one thousand Indian pastors.
You will remember from our past newsletters that Pastor Ebenezer chose the Andaman Islands as
the six month outreach for the first Bible school during the second year of study. Over 300,000
tracts were distributed in the local dialect. These students lived in a remote area and walked to
villages daily to love the people and share Christ. No one ever dreamed that the tsunami would
wipe out thousands of people on these islands. We will know when we reach heaven how many
people are there because of these Bible students.
Pastor Ebenezer will reopen the Bible school in July with ten students. He will do this on a very
limited budget as he steps out in faith on God. Pastor Ebenezer will train the students for three
years with intense prayer, total command of the Bible, outreaches to villages, medical clinics, daily
orphanage experience and crusades as he is able. In January we will participate in the activities
with the Bible school students, experiencing all aspects of ministry, practical and spiritual. Prayer is
key at IGF, morning and evening, glorious times.
Please contact me if you would like more information about our trip to India in January of 2008. As
God provides the finances I am planning a preliminary trip in June/July (dates not set yet) with a
trip to Zambia at the same time. We will visit Pastor Jim Koshita Kamufakache who uses our
publications extensively in his ministry. We will stop in London on the return trip to stay in the
home of our London Lamplight representative, Godfried Geyevu. If anyone is interested in this trip,
please let me know.
A mission trip is not for the faint of heart. You must be totally flexible, able to deal with delays and
travel frustrations, and get along well with others. You must be healthy. Traveling is rigorous. For
those who consider traveling with us, I will educate you regarding traveling to a foreign nation.
Each trip will be life changing. You will have a tug in your heart if you are supposed to goJ I look
forward to hearing from you. You are ever so welcome in India. You will seeJ The children will
win your hearts immediately.
REQUEST FROM A PASTOR IN PAKISTAN - I am corresponding with a pastor in Pakistan about
the translation of one of our books into Farsi or Arabic. For several years I have had this goal. I
won’t mention the name, but please pray for this pastor.
PRISON OUTREACH - We continually receive requests to send books to prison inmates who then
write to thank us. Thank you for helping us to send books to prisons and for praying for Lamplight’s
outreach to inmates. We are blessed to serve the God Who gives us a second chance. Pray for
favor for the inmates in Christ Jesus who face great difficulty when they leave prison.
We are very encouraged by your prayers and by your financial contributions. We thank God for
you. We love you. Jesus loves you. Thank you for helping us to experience the joy of serving so
many needy people.
Love in Jesus Christ,
