Dear Wake Up Family!
I am so excited!!! Jumpin’ Jubilees! Almost $31,000 in materials were shipped this past month! This pushes our four month giveaway total to a little more than $130,000! At this point, we are continuing to exceed our projections to reach $1,000,000 in three years! I can tell that you are getting excited, too! The sharing season is coming soon, so stock up and be prepared! Enclose a booklet with a seasonal card! Sharing present truth is not only one of the most important things we can do, it is also heartwarming and inspiring! Many people will receive and read a booklet if invited. So, keep up the great work. You can be 100% sure that the Holy Spirit will produce good fruit from good seeds. I would like to hear creative ways you are sharing. Send an email so we can share your ideas with others. One man recently told me he puts a $5 or $10 dollar bill in a booklet when giving a tip! With the money poking out, no one has refused! How remarkable! A conversation starter that is both brief and unforgettable.
While giveaway numbers are helpful and important, they don’t tell the whole story. This past month nearly 33,000 people visited our website and over 8,000 people watched 102,245 minutes of YouTube videos. If our endeavor cause one more person to receive Jesus as his Savior, Jesus will be very pleased, and the eternal joy of the person who favorably responds to the Holy Spirit will be eternal gratitude to Jesus and the unknown person that shared the good news! As I see medical people because of my illness, I try to share a booklet with them and if people are not inclined for spiritual things, I ask if they know someone who is. Most often they do. One lady told me yesterday her mother likes to read the Bible. I said, “Here, please take this entire series on the Antichrist to your mom and ask her to give you a book report!”
The medical worker laughed, “That’s a great idea. I just don’t have much leisure time for reading.” Share-Share-Share!
We have some new booklets on the assembly line which you will be receiving shortly. I hope you will like them, read them, and share them! We must be about the king’s business, so ask Jesus for special opportunities to share. Grab some booklets and see what happens! The Lord will bless you for doing whatever you can to advance His coming kingdom!
It is with deep sadness that I have to report that two of my dear friends died in September: Joni Bosworth in Spokane, WA; and Dr. Ken Ching in Stockton, CA. Both of these wonderful people were among the first to embrace Revelation’s story and support this ministry. Both were in their seventies. And I just learned that another dear friend and very early supporter, Nate Jenkins in Dayton, OH, has just been given a few weeks to live. I mention these precious people because they supported this ministry from its earliest days and those of you who came later to embrace the message are the beneficiaries of their faith, sacrifice, and sharing.
In a way, every Christian is a beneficiary of the sacrifice and faith of someone who believed earlier. Those who study genealogy often draw large family trees. When we get to Heaven, I want to see the family tree that shows how one person shared the gospel of Jesus with another and this is how the family of God came to be! Now that tree will be an interesting tree! A genealogy not based on blood, but on sharing!
Keep sharing and looking up! I am!
