Dear Friends and Partners,
We greet you in the mighty name of Jesus and trust that all is well with each of you. The writer of Hebrews reminds us of God’s promise as well as our right to make a bold declaration: “‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So that we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:5&6 NKJV) We want to remind you that God will keep His promises and you can declare His help and protection over your lives.
In a recent letter, we mentioned hearing many testimonies concerning our past ministry. In January, Eugene was in Cali, Colombia and had lunch with a pastor and some members of his congregation. Mr. Gabriel Lopez was sitting across the table from Eugene and shared the following testimony. Sixteen months before he was bidding on a contract in Santa Marta on the north coast of Colombia. His competition in the bidding hired a “hit man” to eliminate the competition. Gabriel was shot five times: twice in the head, once in each shoulder and once in the heart. He was taken to the hospital, not expecting to live. When he regained consciousness, he was told that he could not survive due to the damage. He replied, “I cannot die. I received a word from a prophet from the United States named Eugene May who spoke about the plan of God for my life. It has not all come to pass, therefore, I cannot die.” The two shots in the head were enough to kill him but he refused to die. The shot in the heart hit his pen and was deflected away from his heart. We have included a photo of that pen in this letter. God is truly a God of miracles.
We have discovered again, in these past few months, just how exciting life can be. We have not only heard tremendous testimonies, we have seen thousands receiving Jesus as Savior. God is causing a fresh outpouring of evangelism in the nations. In the midst of great turmoil in many areas of the world, God is reaching in with His hand of salvation and blessing.
Plans are being made for our ministry in France, Switzerland and England in the month of April. We are looking forward to returning to a number of churches that we have visited in the past. We are simply asking you to be in prayer with us concerning the finances for the trip. God has proven Himself faithful and we know that He will be so again. We are reminded of the God’s promise through the prophet Jeremiah when He said, “Call to Me, and I will answer you…” (Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV)
It is our desire for each of you to be led by the Holy Spirit and that you experience the provision of God in every aspect of your lives.
Eugene & Sherry
