Local News and Events
Our On-Line Church promotes and encourages multiple Ministry efforts, offering them more opportunity for their words to be heard across several platforms and reach a larger audience. In an attempt to provide as much visibility as possible we will run articles that bring right now issues and concerns that affect the Body of Christ at large to the fore-front.
Ministry Watchmen Report
In our Ministry Watchman Report I scan the news line and incoming mail for issues that have a direct bearing on our lives, most of the time the news is good. Most of these articles are of a spiritual nature the others are still vital information to know and beware of. Our On-Line Church promotes many platforms that will offer opportunity to the many voices vying for their words to be heard. In an attempt to provide as much visibility as possible to promote their Ministry efforts we will run articles that bring right now issues and concerns that affect the Body of Christ at large to the fore-front.
It may be true these articles below may not have a direct link to things spiritual, but it does have a link to extinguish our ability to shine our light, the Gospel message, not only personally but corporately as a Country.

# 1 Jesus Film Project
In my Watchman Report I like to highlight articles of interest that may not always be good news, but news we need to hear and reflect upon for our own well being. This month much “Good News” (Gospel) to share, starting off with the Jesus Film Project; they are a stand out group of folks that not only share the Gospel, but with excellent results as well. These folks are fearless in their attempt to take the Gospel where many or most folks dare not go. They pray for God’s protective Hand and then they GO. The places they go are so hungry for the truth; they are excited to see the film of the life of Jesus in their own language. I love reading about their great efforts. Please pray for this Ministry and if you want to get in on some souls being saved, send an offering, do what you can, and may God bless you greatly as you share. Blessings; Thomas
# 2 One Child Ministry
This is another Evangelical Outreach to some of the poorest in the world. They comprise of Missionaries who give their life in service to others. Can you imagine that kind of sacrifice? The fruit that comes forth makes it all worthwhile. Literally thousands of children are loved, fed, clothed, and taught the Word of God through this incredible Ministry. One particular lady that is a partner to this Ministry is no stranger in her efforts to what she can do for the cause of Christ. The Ministry has what is referred to as sponsors. These are folks that “adopt” a child to provide for, not a legal adoption of course, just a commitment to send a certain amount of money monthly earmarked for that child. You can sponsor as many as you like for as long as you like. This particular lady is apparently a widow, not totally sure on that, but it seems so. At 77 years old she sponsors, get this, 13 children, she is not a wealthy woman by world standards. This is pretty incredible considering each child’s sponsorship is $40. 00 a month, she works at a local Mc Donald’s to help make ends meet. Many good works are awaiting hands to be placed on them, if you feel this is within your reach, please go to; onechild.org/giveagift. Blessings; Thomas
# 3 Jews for Jesus
Here is one more great work for God taking place across the world. The Gospel is being shared with the Jewish folks around the globe. Jews for Jesus is a Messianic Christian group of folks that are taking the Gospel back to their own people. You may have heard stories of old where the Jews were nearly impossible to reach for Christ, but not anymore as thousands are coming to salvation yearly. I tend to believe that within each person is a homing device, if we follow the signal, it will guide you to the Father’s House. It seems the masses are being influenced by the social media platforms that are readily available across the world. Many questions are being asked about Jesus being the Messiah, and just as many answers are forthcoming. Please pray for the “Peace of Jerusalem”. Shalom; Thomas

# 1 Hillsdale College
The Hillsdale College has been around for almost a one hundred and seventy five years. In that length of time you can be sure they have made an impact upon our society. I’m happy to report that their impact of not trying to indoctrinate kids with lies and private agenda, but the truth concerning our great republic, and how to maintain the republic by standing on what our fore-fathers brought forth in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These truths are under a severe attack even as we speak. To rise up capable leaders for the future is imperative. Please pray for and stand with our friends and partners in this great mission to save our republic. Check them out on line, they have free downloads, monthly publication and share invaluable insights for the informed believers in our day and time. Blessings; Thomas
# 2 American Leprosy Missions
Did you know that leprosy is still one of the world’s blights that need to be dealt with? I once got a thing in the mail, it was this Missionary group actually, in it was a picture of a young black girl that had leprosy, her precious little face was distorted/disfigured, she was trying to hide the obvious. I was moved by what I saw, I wanted to hug that precious child, pray that thing off her, do something, but never in a thousand years do nothing. Please check out these folks on line, or if you are given an opportunity to send an offering please do, God Bless you as you do. Blessings; Thomas
# 3 Jesus Film Project
I love to plant gardens and watch the plants come to fruition and bring forth in abundance, what a blessing. The same is true in the Spiritual realm, sewing a financial seed in a proven Ministry is a blessing if there ever was one. These folks are in the soul winning business, and I’m not talking about a couple of folks heard a message; I’m talking whole villages hearing the message and getting saved. The forces of evil trying to stop this great work, but prayer for their safety is made continually, and God provides the safety needed. What a great magnitude of work is being wrought by these folks, these numbers will astound you; 1.6 Billion have been reached by these folks (and partners like us) in a 5 year period. There’s more; Salvations; almost 150 million, and new Churches to support the new to Christ; almost 1.5 million. This is fruit, if you want to be a part of this great last days mission effort; please look up; Jesus Film Project, and if you can, please be a part of this great work. Blessings; Thomas
