Family News – June, 2014

Dear Ones,

[Yikes!! I just published the July Family News yesterday and noticed that I had neglected getting the June Family News published last month.  I am so sorry for the delay… here’s more mail that will add to our praises – more testimonies of our Father’s great faithfulness, so enjoy…  Love, Nancy]

Let’s begin this month’s mail with an exhortation from John:  “Please intercede on behalf of these dear people. May the Holy Spirit guide their every step to Yeshua’s feet and may He be able to place them in Father’s arms.”

This note was shared with the Pilot Group related to a request sent by one of our beloved FMM family members who is in a place where there is great persecution against believers in Yeshua.  Obviously, He has captured the hearts of those represented in this group, once again affirming that there is indeed nothing impossible to our God, just as He promised:

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (Matthew 5:6 NIV)

Of course, it also remains true that we must be faithful to pray for one another, so please join us honoring our Lord through consistent intercession for this part of our extended FMM family (and for all others in similar situations).

There’s also another email contained in this month’s family mail that fills my heart with a spirit of gratitude once again.  One of our own did a beautiful job of articulating what is difficult to put into words… the marvelous and miraculous way in which our God orchestrates the spread of His Kingdom

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. (I Corinthians 1:27 NIV)

Each one of us who is a part of this amazing and ever growing family of disciples is just an ordinary person, living an ordinary life, doing ordinary things that our God turns into an extraordinary work to exalt His Son and expand His Kingdom further and further into the kingdoms of darkness here in time and space.  And that’s why none of us can boast or claim any credit – it’s all His doing so all glory will always be His.

So read and rejoice with me, my beloved family, and lift your hearts in praise to the One to whom all praise is due!

The place where the Apostle Paul spoke of when He said there would be Peace, Joy and Righteousness in a Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17). We know this kingdom does not exist as buildings or mansions, which our natural eyes behold, but it certainly exists. (St. Luke 17:20 & 21) Jesus told the Pharisees that the Kingdom of God is within you and I. Praise God that He continues giving us time to share together a peace that surpasses man’s understanding, a joy that is unspeakable and full of Glory and Righteousness created by God and God alone.

FROM AFRICA:  Dear Dad, God leaded me to start a women group prayer that is praying for you (FMM) and (Adat HaTikvat Tzion congregation) USA and your families! It is true that God does not do anything spiritual in this world without the prayers of His saints. I learn through the history of the church that whenever there was a praying generation, work of God was found to be progressing. Whenever prayer was lacking, work of God suffered in equal proportion. There is no exception to this rule. Behind every major revival in the church, there was a praying church. Even today a mighty revival sweeping through the nations of the world, it can be brought about by a praying church. Yes! We have a God who answers prayers! Need your prayers and love you with my heart dear Dad. Nevertheless, we are more happy working under your leadership. With love from Africa, Daughter

 FROM AFRICA:  Dear Dad…Many times changes come. But, this will be the time the Lord defines and adjusts us to move forward. In all, we have to be in prayer as the transition takes place. We live in the last days when there is full of lies and deception in the world where arrogance and evil ambitions is the main motivation for many and the darkness of the night is the only safe heaven for the crushed souls. It is our hope that the man of the soil will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God through the same Gospel of Yeshua Messiah that true men and women of God are committed preaching! Press on my Dad!!! Have a great day! Son

 FROM NORTH AMERICA:  Pastor John, I really can’t thank you enough for helping me through reading your books out of leading a ruined life. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Follow me ministries. Thanks again.

 FROM EUROPE:  John, “Fantastic!! I am really fascinated by what we’ve learn t from your Pamphlets like “More Exodus revelation of God’s living word, and, Training disciples for show time and, the Removal of sin-residue. 

FROM AFRICA:  Dear friend my Dad in the gospel of Messiah…. Hug for me Mum please! We are a small Follow me ministries family-minded ministry but Glory be to God that we are reaching out to draw all men (whosoever will) to Him, because the time of His return is soon and the signs of His return are being seen daily through the weather, the earth, the wickedness in control and the falling away of the Saints from God’s ways to the world’s manipulations.

How did you become connected with _____? Why I say this, I learn from your website that you have NO Staff… And I know some rich ministries with the world’s richness but they have not yet reached the world.

———————-

In closing, I’d like to share another note from John…

This is what has been developing during the last 3 years: The list of congregations and groups that ask to be included on our FMM distribution list keeps on growing. We have more distributors and more helping hands. And we have more people that want the booklets. But the number of our regular financial supporters remains pretty much the same. So now we’ve reached a point where the funds I have to send for helping out with the printing and travel and other ministry expenses is not enough to keep up with the demand and need for our booklets.

So would you please join me in prayer? Let’s ask Father to increase our support base even as He increases the demand for what He keeps giving us to share with other people!

“Now after this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them in pairs ahead of Him to every city and place where He Himself was going to come. And He was saying to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.’” (Luke 10:1-3)

Closing now, one lamb to the others.  May our Heavenly Father richly bless and keep you… may His Face shine upon you, and may you always find rest in His everlasting arms,

Your sister, Nancy
