July 2021 – Partner Update
Through your gifts you and I together are loving people to life.
I am beginning with a great thank you and praise to God for all of you who have continued to send your gifts and letters of encouragement through this long winter of the pandemic when there has been little communication from us to you. Your continued giving without a monthly prod to do so thrills me – you give by the Spirit’s urging and not by my stoking your emotional fires!
As most of you know I was married to Cheryl back in February, and these last months have been consumed with moving the contents of her house to Bandera and then selling her house in Houston. That will soon be over as we close in a few days.
These days where we could not meet brought about a new dimension of ministry that I believe is here to stay – meeting by Zoom. We enjoy Bible schools by Zoom that have caused them to increase from 60 or 70 students to nearly 200 covering the world. We will have Module 3 in September 17-18th, and a repeat in October 15-16th, 2021 and all who have taken Modules 1 and 2 should sign up for this one that covers all the covenants of the Old Testament by registering with Judy (830) 328-3770.
We also meet every Sunday and many join us by Zoom – if you’d like to join our Sunday church services in Zoom, just email us at email@example.com to let us know you’re interested. I also have had the joy of coming into living rooms via Zoom and spending an evening sharing and answering questions… I have had home Bible studies sitting in Bandera ministering in a home 1,000 miles away! I even had a meeting in a church on the East coast without leaving my house.
But times are changing – at least in Texas – and we [Cheryl will be with me] will be speaking in Alvin, Texas on September 26th, both morning and evening services. I will have the exact location and times for you in my message next month.
We are excited that the first weekend of December we will have our annual retreat that we had to cancel last year. PRAYER: The Door to the Father’s Intention – Friday, December 3 – Sunday, December 5, 2021 in Kerrville, Texas. Register online at www.unclov.org/2021retreat or to register by phone, contact Judy at (830) 328-3770 and be sure to have your place.
My message this time deals with one of the most basic problems of life – when we are faced with a situation that reveals our weakness, our “I am not enough, I cannot, I have not…” Paul said that he had learned a secret in which he could embrace the reality that Christ was his life and then embrace his weakness as the arena in which the strength of God would be perfectly manifested not only in a spiritual dimension but in our actual experience and feelings! Listen at least once– there is a tremendous spiritual truth here!
Again I celebrate you as you have given so consistently through these last months – your gifts enable us to penetrate the darkness with the light of the unconditional love of God.
You are blessed in Christ Jesus,
Malcolm and Cheryl
