Dear friends and partners, this year has been extremely hard for us with regards to various trials that we have had to endure, but we count it all joy! The ministry of the Word has gone out around the world and because of it lives have been changed!
Our website has reached over 15,000 this year and our weekly messages and devotions go out to hundreds every week. The word of God is being multiplied and the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is being preached to thousands and those who have eyes to see and ears to hear and have been edified and blessed!
The Angel Bear Project was a huge success this year, giving out to many organizations and individuals with food, personal care products, toys and gifts. It is our desire as the Lord leads to concentrate our efforts to assist the needy all year long instead of just during the holidays and our goal is to continue to network with other ministries, organizations and churches and expand our outreach.
Our goal for 2015 is to expand and grow our ministry of teaching and training through our website and other media such as video, publishing, and taped series that go around the world, multiplying the seed of the word of God. Our Tuesday night Faithful Men and Women's Fellowship is open to all and provides a place where one can grow in the Lord and be able to share what God has given them.
Finances have always been a need to continue the work and God has always been faithful to provide for us even though at times it gets tight. Monthly support is our greatest need at the present time and we try to make our needs known without constantly reminding people because God is ultimately our source, but none the less we are worthy of our wages.
For the past fifteen years or so we have moved around from place to place as the Lord leads but now we are needing a permanent place to plant a training center where we can be consistent in ministry, counseling and teaching. We are presently looking and will continue to pray that God will open a door of opportunity for us to establish a place of ministry.
Seed money for expansion is also a great need for us in the coming year as our finances have been exhausted this year with the Angel Bear Project and the many purchases we have made to be able to meet all of the pressing needs of those we assist during the holidays. If you would like to make a one time year end gift or become a monthly partner with us then please send your tax deductible gift to Restoration Training Center, P.O. Box 162932, Ft. Worth, Texas 76161.
Mary Ann and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year and we wish to thank all who have given this year, whether a financial gift or for volunteering to help us assist the needy. May God bless you all!
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper and be in health, just as your soul prospers. For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. Beloved you do faithfully whatever you do for the brethren and for strangers, who have borne witness of your love before the church. If you send them forward on their journey in a manner worthy of God, you will do well, because they went forth for His name's sake, taking nothing from the Gentiles. We therefore ought to support such, that we may become fellow workers for the truth. III John 2-8
