Psalms 139:1 = “O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.” The other day I was at a church where the Pastor read most of the 139th Psalm. At the time I felt that I would like to make it a challenge to memorize that whole chapter.
That first verse is a real comfort to me. My God knows all about me and still loves me anyway. I don’t live in fear that He might find out something about me that He didn’t know that might change the way He feels about me. I am sure that many of us have something in our past that if people knew about, it would change their opinion of us.
Knowing us like He does also means He knows how to help us avoid problems and what we need that will help us have a victorious life. Therefore, whatever He allows into my life can be used by Him to mold me into the person He desires me to be. What a blessed thought.
During the month of March I had the opportunity to be in 6 churches and attend the “Men for Christ” rally in Iowa. I can’t put into words the blessings Nancy and I receive as we fellowship with God’s people in their churches. In each church we have met some people that have really been an encouragement to us.
We also held our annual meeting on the 10th of the month. There was a genuine spirit of unity at the meeting and we were encouraged that the finances for this ministry have been doing much better.
We have a lot of things planned for BFLW for the month of April. Because I don’t schedule a church for Easter Sunday, I will be speaking at my home church, Temple Baptist Church of La Crosse for their Sunrise service. I have 3 other churches scheduled for the month and will also be hosting our annual Pro-Life rally in Oshkosh at Wyldewood Baptist Church on the 21st at 1:00 PM. We would like to encourage everyone to attend. We will be taking an offering for Baptists for Life of Wisconsin and would like everyone to bring a package of diapers to bury me in diapers.
Again, I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support of this ministry. I don’t consider that this is the work of one person, but the ministry of many people burdened about the lives of innocent defenseless people that are being murdered every day. Keep praying for us and this ministry.
In His Service,
Andrew K. Buhrow
