Dear Praying Friends,
April and May were our most productive and busy late winter/spring ministry periods ever.
I returned from my Southeast USA travels, March 29. We praise God for new contacts on that trip.
After one week at home, Hilary accompanied me to the Cree Reserve in Mistissini, QC. We had been invited for a week of Gospel & Prophecy meetings, April 8-16. Our travels were by car to Montreal and with by Air Creebec to Chibougamau. Attendance at all meetings was good, and interest was high. We were both interviewed on local radio which allowed for The Gospel to go further. Our return travel day flight was delayed more than 3 hours. The ice storm that had hit Ontario the previous weekend arrived in time to create just enough havoc. The people from Air Creebec told us that they rarely cancelled flights. People in the terminal in Chibougamau with other carriers were progressively sent home as they were cancelled. Our plane arrived just before 6 PM and we were off the ground at 6:15, more than 3 hours late, but in the air. Praise God The Lord got us home. We are looking forward to another visit there for similar meetings next year.
While in Mistissini we began “broadcasting our meetings” live on Facebook. After they were recorded they were posted to our I-Hope Community pages, specifically: Israel’s Hope Ministries Discussion Group and Israel’s Hope Ministries.
After returning home and seeing the response to those meetings online we began to experiment with live broadcasts of Israel’s Hope Bible Church. We are now making this a regular part of ministry and broadcast our message most Sundays. Starting June 3 our Sunday morning message will air online about 11:15 AM. Please note these times are approximate, as our worship and prayer time is not entirely constrained to time. If you wish to join us this summer online go to Israel’s Hope Ministries Community Page. “Like” the page, and then join us. If you have questions about what you hear you may private message me on Facebook and I will answer as able. But, here is what is exciting about this new endeavour…
When people “tune in,” I see on screen who joins us. There have been regular visits from three Jewish men I have shared The Gospel with in recent months. Please pray that The Lord uses this new media as a means to see salvation go out to those who tune in.
The Lord has met our needs the past month. The summer months loom. We did not “totally make budget for the past month. If The Lord allows you, would you consider a special offering to assist us in the coming months, June through September.
Please also pray as I complete plans for our annual Atlantic Canada ministry trip. That will occur as always, Lord willing after September 17 and through October 2.
Because of your prayer and sacrifice we are able to continue. We praise God for each of you and what you do for us. We do say thank you and above all, praise God for all He does through you.
Shalom in Christ,
Ron & Hilary Grossman
