Unexpected Prison Ministry Trip to OK!

We are heading out for an unexpected trip to visit an elderly sister, a brother in prison (with a possible release hearing soon!), and a brother who is in jail departing soon for prison. One of these was sudden and requires out immediate attention thus we are going to knock out all three (and visit another wonderful family with whom I am closer than a brother!) while out handling it. If you are led, able, and willing feel free to help us with fuel and food you can use paypal pastor@giftedfaithful.org or this button! 

Please share! Shalom Shalom!

Have you been called Legalistic?

So some call those who try to live as The Messiah did “Legalistic”, so consider this… the alternative to to “loving the Torah(Law)”, is “Anomia”, which is,
lawlessness, iniquity, disobedience, sin, anti-Torah, anti-law.
Not a hard choice when framed that way is it…and don’t forget that The Messiah is Torah… John 1:14… The Torah made flesh. So Anomia…could easily be seen as Antichrist as well. Shalom.

Adult Children’s choices often cause guilt in parents… Don’t let it snare you!

Parents of adult children who are living very painful and miserable lifestyles/choices often feel to blame. The devil uses the suffering of the adult children to project guilt on the parent.

We sure could use some help, helping at the local shelter!

The winter months are an especially difficult time to wrestle with homelessness.  We work diligently to support the only local men’s crisis shelter in our area by helping staff the over night volunteer shifts. There are just a few of us, and most work full day time jobs. We would love to have YOUR help in meeting these needs. If you are able to sit over night one or more nights (18 years and older, not on registry, heart to help others) please let us know. If you are not able to stay overnight but want to help, meals are provided also so we can arrange a date for you/your group to cover a meal or help you turn your monetary gift into food for these men. Please Consider helping if you can, and keep our efforts and the men who seek the shelter in your prayers. Shalom Shalom (Note* some have asked about the strange breathing sounds in the video lol, that is our rescue boxer Levi, that is how he breathes)

Warn the unknowing, leave the wicked to repent or perish once warned.

Stop your ignorant wickedness world…. If you see someone being wicked because they perhaps know no better… warn them, after that it is on them. You can’t change people’s heart or actions.
Ezekiel 3:17-19 Human being, I have appointed you to be a watchman for the house of Isra’el. When you hear a word from my mouth, you are to warn them for me. If I say to a wicked person, ‘You will certainly die’; and you fail to warn him, to speak and warn the wicked person to leave his wicked way and save his life; then that wicked person will die guilty; and I will hold you responsible for his death. On the other hand, if you warn the wicked person, and he doesn’t turn from his wickedness or his wicked way, then he will still die guilty; but you will have saved your own life.

Will you cook or sponsor a meal for the homeless men in our area?

As many of you may know we are very active in our community men’s shelter. It operates from November 1st until the end of March.  The shelter provides a safe warm place to sleep, shower, and laundry, along (new this year!) medical and other services to homeless men. This is done through volunteers and donated meals! If you are local and willing to “Cook a meal” (for 1-8ish folks) once a week, once a month, once?…then let me know and we will work out what day. If you are not local but would like to help fill the need these homeless men have of a hot meal we can take a donation and buy dinner at a local eatery (of your choice) and get it to them.  Also if you local and willing to give a 12 hour over night volunteer shift contact us, we could use the help!  If you have questions about what we do to support the shelter, or it’s rules, or the organization in charge of it feel free to contact us as well. Shalom Shalom, and always remember to help those who are in need as best you can!
