We have another month filled with amazing stories of how our blessed Lord is advancing His Kingdom through disciples who were willing to say, “Yes!” when they heard Him say, “Follow Me!” You’ll read stories that will make your heart soar, and some that will bring tears to your eyes. So many of us have weathered heart breaking life circumstances, so many have come through great difficulties. One of those heart breaking stories is on hold till I get the author’s permission to publish. But that one, like each and every other one, met their One True Love and Lord and found him to be more than enough!
May I encourage us all to continue to be faithful to Him… to follow His earthly mother’s admonition to the servers at the Cana wedding – “Do whatever He tells you.” (John 2:5) Those “whatevers” will be different for each of us. Some may be called to translate, print and distribute teachings; some may care for orphans; some may pray; some may serve; some may work; some may reach out in godly love with a hug, a word, the gift of time and/or presence. Regardless of our assignments, our motive is the same – to embody Him and to see our Lord glorified and His Name exalted. For then, as He has promised, He will draw all men unto Himself. (John 12:32) What a privilege we have to praise and worship this Wonderful and Magnificent God!
A quick editorial note…
We launched the Family News page in September of 2012. You may recall that we wanted it to serve as an FMM Family Forum – a means by which members of our ever-growing worldwide family of disciples could share their hearts, breakthroughs, hurts, healings and other experiences, with their Family. And because English is a second language for many among us, I committed not to edit what you write, but to allow you freedom to share whatever you wish, as you wish. In that sense, I will continue to ‘publish’ what you send, rather than edit or proofread it.
The protection of your identity is foremost on my heart. Many of our FMM family members live in places that are unfriendly (and even overtly hostile) to the gospel of our Risen Lord and His people. So rather than risk anyone’s exposure and endangerment, I will continue to mention continents instead of countries and remove any name, date, place, occupation or any other information that could enable enemies of the gospel to track down any of our precious Family members.
Over the months our email volume has increased. And so, for the sake of those who are new, allow me to review the parameters and make you aware of a few adjustments I feel led to make:
- When I receive emails with portions written in your native language, those portions will be for the eyes of the Omaha Pilot Group only. For the reasons already stated, I won’t publish them with the rest of the message.
- Before I publish an email containing detailed, painful personal experiences, I will continue to ask your permission to publish it and will gladly abide by your wishes and preferences.
- Emails that specifically discuss someone’s former affiliation with, and departure from, other religions and belief systems will also be for Omaha Pilot Group eyes only. I will do that for this reason: we, as disciples, know that our Master and His True Biblical Gospel, requires us to forsake all alien gods and teachers and their teachings. But we are wise to do that without demeaning others or putting them down unnecessarily, especially when they have not yet had the opportunity to hear the awesome Good News of Salvation that we have to share with them and see the life-transforming results that follow when people hear, believe, repent and submit themselves to our Messiah and embrace His ways (See Proverbs 15:1 & Matthew 10:16)
- Finally, since there is no; ‘J’ in the Hebrew language, I will change the spelling of Jesus’ Name from Jeshua, to Yeshua, since that is the correct English transliteration of the Hebrew Name that Father originally gave to His beloved Son.
Now, on to this month’s Family mail. Enjoy… as I prepared this for publication, I sure have! May the Fullness of Father’s Blessings be upon each one of you,
Your sister, Nancy
