The Wisdom From Above

Dear Prayer Partners,

“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.” (Jas 3:17)

Satan’s rebellion is getting more evident day by day. Many legislators are deluded over ridiculous issues. And for those who refuse to speak up for propriety and truth, let them be ashamed. Delusion among leaders has led to the destruction of modern cities. Venezuela is a country that is starting to make horrible noises as it goes under. May God be gracious to us, and though the United States claims to be a country “under God,” may we truly reflect that in our values and choices.

In the midst of such warfare, please pray for advance of the truth of God, and in particular, the truth that regularly goes out through BFF– the website, the store, the many resources sent out around the world. In these next three months, may I be able to leap forward in developing new resources.

Besides updating older books, I plan to focus on two new books, each in a different stage of writing. The summer is one of my best times for writing. I am not teaching regularly, but preach occasionally. However, some larger house projects might take up some of that time.

Do keep our college-aged children in mind. Allison, recently graduated with her Masters in publishing, is seeking a full-time position in New York City. Daniel is seeking to get into the Physical Therapy Assistant program. Kathryn’s costs for this coming semester at Judson University are $4,000 higher than last semester. Isaac has his sights on college and hopes to take some college classes this fall while in his last year of high school. God has wonderfully provided in the past, and we all appreciate your prayers through these transitions of life.


  • Thank the Lord for grace to speak the numerous messages in the past few weeks.

  • The Life in the Spirit! class has gone well, with increased numbers even after school is over.

  • Thank the Lord for good general health and blessing.

  • Tomorrow, Sunday night (May 29th) I am preaching an evangelistic message to mostly Indians who do not know the Lord. Pray for the salvation of this group of 50-60 though I expect the size to be smaller tomorrow since classes are out and some have already graduated.

  • The last parenting class is this coming Wednesday–three babies born are already born.

  • Extra grace is needed for intense writing and editing of the current projects.

  • That hard-drive is still not functioning. I am thinking of giving it one more week to see if it will wake up so I can transfer the 14 video files off of it.

  • Wisdom for some counseling.

As always, thanks so much for your prayers!
