Dear Ministry Members…As we come closer to the end of our joint ministry fundraising campaign, we first wish to thank you sincerely for so many years of prayer and support. Without all of you, we would not have been able to minister in these many ways. Eric, of The Ranch, with his sermon series, his books, his music, his plays…all the resources that he has shared and made available for over 20 years! And he has strived to continue making all of these blessings available to all of us through his blessed technical wherewithal.
He was one of the earliest pastors to understand the potential of this “thing” we call the Internet so long ago, and he still remains on the forefront of understanding the use of this technology, much as Billy Graham and his associates did first with radio and then TV so very long before.
We all now take the Internet and this worldwide connectivity for granted, but if we take a moment just to reflect not only how it has changed all of our lives, but just how powerful of a tool it really is in our work for the Lord, to reach out and touch people in such significant and life-changing ways.
I thank God for Eric each and every day…for the blessing of “randomly” sitting next to him at a conference some 18 or so years ago…that began a friendship and a collaboration that has been a joy and a reward from the Lord, in the work we have attempted ever since.
And your support has made all the difference to my area of devotion, in sharing a daily Christian seed with you each and every morning. It has been just 20 years now that This Day’s Thought has broadcast out, and, at my upcoming age of 65, I do hope and pray that I might continue for even another 20 years, if that is what the Lord has in his plans for me.
So, thank you all for your diligent and pervasive prayers and for all your past financial support. Eric and I remain prayerful that we can still end this year with the desired resources to enter into 2019 on a firm financial foundation, as we both go forward to share our love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
And thank you for considering helping us yet again in these efforts.
