I. Update on Billboards.
This letter is filled with Praise for our Sovereign Lord and Redeemer!! Today the Lord is inviting the reader to Himself on 70 billboards and bus shelters throughout the USA! An average of 60,000 people see each billboard daily, and millions more daily in NY State. Jesus Christ has exalted His Word in five more states since we last wrote, and fervently in two states in particular!! Austin Texas has numerous billboards, and in Spanish as well. On 20 billboards in Westchester County, NY and on even more bus shelters all over the five boroughs of New York City is: The Lord is close to the broken hearted. "I have loved you with an everlasting love." Psalm 34:18 / Jeremiah 31:3 NIV.
II. Quick update needs and notes.
III. Inner workings of BFC.
In our last newsletter we spoke of the Lord's desire to comfort those in New York City whose tragedy was so great on September 11th, 2001. It always amazes me, although I hope I never get jaded, how the Lord works through circumstances, His children, and non-believers for His greater purposes and glory.
~By God's Hand, money came in (for we do nothing without cash in hand first). We contacted our usual outdoor advertisers, and were recommended to other vendors to help with special needs we didn't realize we had. Then came the costs! By a series of events, the Lord made the price even cheaper than it has ever been before, and for far more coverage. 3,500,000 people, per board, per day are able to read God's Word in New York state.
~Secondly, the Lord Jesus had a Christian man do His design work in a new company we were to work with, when the gentleman wasn't solicited (except of course by the Lord Himself!). Jesus again, eagerly shares His Work with His children, even though He doesn't need us. God our Father delights in us and wants to share in the harvest with each of us that He has invited to join Him in His Work. You are being invited, too!
~But something troubled me. This "trouble" ended up being the best gift to me of all. When we were to post God's Word in New York state, I was concerned. It seemed that we were only going to be in Westchester County. "Lord!", I implored. "Why are we to go to Westchester County?!! I want to go to Manhattan, where I grew up, and where I think the pain is the greatest!" (Naturally I was wrong, but my Father wants to hear my feeble cries, just because He understands me and loves me unconditionally. I matter to Him, and so do you!)
Two events taught me: The first was a news report that stated "Nearly every home in Westchester County has suffered the loss of a relative or friend from the terrorist plane crashes of September 11th." ~God wants to be where His people dwell! The Lord wants to come close to them in their suffering!! Many of these people are Jewish, and much of the new writings on the website are written with them in mind.
The second event: An official from the mass transit authority of Westchester County denied permission to post Scripture on bus shelters. Where were we to go? The gracious outdoor company of Westchester County recommended us to their competitor in Manhattan who gladly chose to post our bus shelters. By prayer and God's mercy and grace, God's Word of comfort is now posted on bus shelters in Manhattan and throughout the five boroughs of NY City! ~ Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Staten Island! The Lord Almighty hears the cry of His people and answers them with His Comfort and Peace!!
IV. Closing Greetings
Please know and trust that the Lord of True Comfort and Peace comes along side of you and wants you to invite Him in to dwell with you! May this season of the birth of Christ Jesus be a reminder to you that He Who is King of the universe took on flesh to dwell among us, for the purpose of revealing Himself to us, and to be the atoning sacrifice for each of our sins! (John 1) The Lord God Almighty loves you tremendously, and chooses for you to love Him with all of your being!! What gift will you give Him this year? He earnestly wants your heart.
May the Christ Child enter into your heart and dwell within you, giving you His unsurpassed eternal riches of Joy, Peace and Love, and much more!! May our Lord Jesus be praised and be glorified to the ends of the earth!! "Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other." Isa 45:22 "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!" Rev 5:12 (~See notes at very end.) May the Lord Jesus bless you in this new year!!
