Dear Friends and Partners,
There are times when we feel so full of the Spirit of the Lord that we know we will overflow onto everyone and everything we touch. This is one of those times. We just finished our annual A.R.M. (Apostolic Resource Ministries) conference and God seemed to pour out a glorious “bucket of honey” on us. We are reminded of the words of the psalmist when he wrote about the word of the Lord, “How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103 NKJV).
We have two gatherings each year: an R&R (Rest and Relaxation) in February and our Annual conference. This week was the first opportunity for us, the A.R.M. family to gather in “conference” since the death of our founder and vision holder, Chuck Clayton. We had two tremendous speakers, Charles Simpson and Mark Pfiefer. (It was after listening to the testimony of Charles Simpson thirty-nine years ago that we asked the Holy Spirit to come into our lives and fill us to overflowing.) They both spoke to us about letting God take us into our futures and not staying in the past as well as the kind of people God will use. Their words were sweet like honey and spoke to our needs, as a couple and as a group.
As we return home for a few days, we will be preparing for a time of ministry in Northern Ontario. Each year the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (POAC) in Ontario conduct an encampment for the French and this year we will be the speakers. It will be a seven-day camp in which we will teach, preach, sing, pray and prophesy as much as our hearts desire. We ask that you pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit as we make our final preparation for this event.
We also plan to spend the remainder of the month of August and the first few days of September at home for a time of rest. Our only request is that you pray for us during this time that the blessing of the Lord and revelation from the Lord will be released. It is our desire to be able to minister to you out of the overflow of the Spirit of the Lord. We believe that as we are filled we will be able to be more effective in ministering the word of the Lord to you.
As we look forward we also ask that you be in pray for the meetings in September and October. In September we plan to be in Canada for about two weeks, speaking in both Quebec and Ontario and October will find us in Vermont and again in Canada. We will be in Morrisville, Vermont for our annual “One Day Conference” on the 8th of October, Columbus Day in the U.S.A. and Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Each year we have discovered “…how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity” (Psalm 133:1 NKJV), as we from both sides of the border gather to praise, worship and enjoy the presence of God together.
It has been awhile since we gave you a report concerning Voice To The Nations Radio. We are blessed to report that we recently expanded our program from fifteen minutes to a half hour. Some of the stations will continue the fifteen-minute program for the next few weeks, but we have already begun to broadcast the half hour program on WLMW New Hampshire Family Radio, 90.7FM in Amherst, New Hampshire. The program is broadcast at 1:00 p.m. (13:00) on Sunday afternoon Eastern Time in the U.S. as well on the web at http://radio.gjoy24.com/online/WLMW_907. We are also on the web at www.solutiontimeradio.org Monday through Friday at 6:00 a.m. (06:00) Central Time in the U.S.
Please remember that you are loved and in our hearts. It is often difficult for us to express our appreciation in the words of our written language. Our prayer for you is that you be blessed far above anything that you could ask or imagine.
