Friends, this has been an unusually busy summer and now the end is in sight. The “back to school sales” have begun. Our children and grandchildren are heading back to school in a few weeks. I’m gathering as much information as possible about the direction of our educational system, and it is most troubling. Watch for HOMEKEEPERS programs coming up soon on the subject of COMMON CORE. We have every right to be concerned. Pray, be informed, speak up and ask the Lord to direct the education of the children in your family.
I want to give you some “hot off the press” type of news. The Lord has blessed us with the very best “regulars” for HOMEKEEPERS. . . Deborah Ray, Dr. David Clarke and Martha Brangenberg. We’ve just added another who indeed is worthy to be called “best”………..Author Carol Kent whose son is in prison for life. Once each month we will discuss ways to minister to those in prison, (which Jesus asked us to do) and also for their families. Love you and appreciate your prayers and financial support for HOMEKEEPERS.
It’s Friday and I couldn’t be happier. I spoke in Ft. Worth Texas for a Church on Mother’s day and came home to the busiest HOMEKEEPERS week so far. We taped 6 shows which I hope will inspire you. Also I’m getting ready to meet my daughter, Meredith Coffman for lunch. She’s going to Costa Rica tomorrow with a missionary team where she will be teaching a Bible class for ladies. If you think of her, please send up a prayer. She’ll be speaking through an interpreter……….not easy, I’ve done it. God bless you!!
Things are speeding up around here as we prepare to tape 6 programs before the end of the week. God has sent some “timely” guests and I’m anxious to share them with you. Keep watching……….and praying for us. Thanks so much!
Twice each year, the CHRISTIAN TELEVISION NETWORK radically changes our schedule in order to raise funds to continue the ministry for the next 6 months. However, it always turns out to be much more than raising money because so much Divine interaction happens between our prayer counselors and the viewers. Some receive Jesus as Savior, some request prayer for healing and numerous other situations. I hope you’ll join us in prayer as together we pray for the Lord’s perfect will during these next six days.
We have been busy working on programs with such a wide variety of subjects. The one continuing comment I receive is “you have such interesting guests”. All I can say is “Give God the glory”. He is the one that sends them and we have the privilege of presenting them to you. God bless you and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Three recent HOMEKEEPERS programs, each was a reminder how God sends us guests to be a special blessing to our viewers. The first program featured Jeff Parker and his concern about the American Church and how many are losing their sense of the Holiness of God. I certainly share that one. Author Suzanne Woods Fisher shared her knowledge of the AMISH and what we can learn from them, followed by David Glover who has established a new ministry to educate the church concerning the physically disabled among us. . . . all important topics. . . right? You will glean much from them as I did.
The holidays have now passed and we stand on a threshold of a brand new year. Our God is very much into “new”, He gave new manna to the Israelites each morning, His mercies are new every morning, and He promised that “old things would pass away, and behold all things would become NEW”. That is very good news. Let go of the old and embrace the “new” coming your way in 2014. Thanks for being a good friend to HOMEKEEPERS, next week we will once again begin taping NEW programs.
Hi Dear Friend,
Merry Christmas to you from HOMEKEEPERS. This is the season of the year when some of our best memories are made. I hope you can be close to your to those you love the most. It is best summed up by these words from Bill and Gloria Gaither…………… "We have this moment to hold in our hands, and to touch as it slips through our fingers like sand. Yesterday’s gone and tomorrow may never come, but we have this moment today."
I hope you’ll watch for a couple of shows to be aired next Monday and Tuesday, December 9th & 10th. On the 9th you’ll meet the parents of Rebecca Septusin as they discuss her battle with cancer while in her teens. On the 10th, Catherine Zoller, author of the most unique Children’s books on the planet returns. She takes an entire book from the Bible, sets it to rhyme and then adds to it brilliant illustrations. This time it’s the book of ACTS.
I woke up earlier than I needed to this morning and remembered how my grandmother prayed for us and no doubt I continue to be blessed by her prayers. I decided to pray for a grandson who is facing a tough decision. Then later, when I did get up to have my regular devotions, the passage I was reading mentioned my “grandson”. (Deuteronomy 6:2) How cool is that??? Some say “the devil is in the details”………not true. Our ALMIGHTY, ALL SUFFICIENT GOD is in the detail. Love you - Arthelene
