Philippians 1:21 = “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Having been a Christian for a number of years, this verse means a lot to me. I am not so bold to say that my life has been a perfect reflection of a child of God, but I have become convinced that for me, I will gain so much more when I die than I will ever lose.
This past month a dear friend of mine passed away. This friend was very special to me as he was a person I had the privilege of leading to the Lord. Though I have shared the Gospel with others in my life, and others have professed to trust Christ through my witness, none of those had the life changing experience that he had. Though in the world’s eyes he may not have made a great impact, his whole life changed. He determined to raise his family according to the Word of God, he ran his business according to the Bible’s teaching, he was faithful to his local church, and he was willing to do whatever he could to help anyone who needed help. He was a hero to me and someone I really admired. For him, to live was Christ, and I am sure he gained when he entered heaven. Thank you Lloyd Hamann.
Our next major event will be our two pro-life rallies. On the 15th of April we will be at Faith Baptist Church in Oak Creek and on the 22nd of April we will be at Immanuel Baptist Church in Menomonie. Both rallies will start at 1:00 PM and Jim Schneider of VCY radio will the main speaker at both. Please be in prayer for the rallies and plan on attending one of them.
We are really excited about churches that are considering an “AIM” program in their church. AIM stands for “Assistance In Mothering:”, and is about ministering to women who might need help with children in their early years. First Baptist Church of New Lisbon has started one in February and we are praying that the Lord will bless their work there. We also have a church in Green Bay that started one in the past. There are some more churches working on starting ministries in the future. At the present time, abortion is against the law in our State and we need to be available to help women who are going through challenges relating to their pregnancies. Perhaps your church should consider what they might do about an “AIM” ministry.
I praise the Lord that my health has somewhat improved and I may be able to serve as director for awhile longer. Please be in prayer that the board and I will know the Lord’s leading in this.
Thanks for all your prayers and support of this important ministry.
