Update from Lud and Mur,

November 1st, 2018

We just got back from a trip where we saw most of our southern family contingent. We stayed one night in one of our grandson’s home, enjoying fellowship and a couple of meals. We toured another grandson’s home. And we cheered a granddaughter as she played in a lacrosse tournament – she had 14 goals in 6 games, her team winning the tournament with six wins! Yes we are proud, but more so, because they are all believers.
We also snuck in a brief visit with PJ and Delores Maduri, our church missionary/evangelist in Beckley, WV. It’s always good to get a first-hand, face to face report of what God is doing through them, gathering prayer requests and praying with them. Pray for him as he pursues a Dr. of Ministry degree, while continuing his strategic, international evangelistic ministry.
I also visited one day with the staff that produces and broadcasts my program in four languages. What a great team I work with at Bible Broadcast Network. Pray for God’s blessing on this ministry and for their Share-a-thon this week. An example of the impact they and my program make is seen in this recent note I got from a listener: Ana wrote from San Jose, Costa Rica: “I wake up early almost every morning,, and meditate on the Lord as I don’t know the hour when He shall come for me. I listen attentively to your programs on Radio BBN. I’m blessed by how you explain the passages of Scripture. Thank you very much!”
I was challenged by a recent communication to encourage everyone in our sphere of influence to be informed regarding the upcoming election on November 6, pray diligently and then vote. To help you get informed go to the website: ivoterguide.com. Then pass this information on to your circle of influence. In addition, encourage your church to do the same. Our country is in desperate need for God to raise up righteous leaders. Proverbs 14:34 declares, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.”
