July 15 to Sept1, Counseling Increased once again from 113 to 126 Sessions
We had stated in the last newsletter that there were 113 hours of counseling scheduled between June 1st and July 15th in 12 states and internationally. To date it was then the highest number of appointments for a month and a half on record but this current period the number of sessions increased even more.
There were also counseling sessions continuing with counselees in Canada and Romania. Additionally, we began counseling with an individual in Essex, England.
As usual, most involved issues with biblical brokenheartedness (D.I.D.) as well as demonization issues. The Bible states that one of the reasons Jesus suffered, died, and rose again from the dead victorious was to “heal the brokenhearted.” And He absolutely does. Wish you could be here to witness the healing as He works.
Thursday Evening Bible Study on ZOOM has been Postponed
Last winter I conducted a Thursday evening Bible study via ZOOM which had individuals from the United States and Australia in attendance. There was no charge for the study which lasted for several months and was a study on what the future holds for the Christian as shown in the fabulous book of Revelation. So many believers want to know what the future holds for them, and as there is so much misunderstanding about the future, Revelation was the place to go to find peace and understanding and what the Lord’s plan is for us.
I now have the study in book form titled “A Study of the Book of Revelation with Relation to the Christian.” The manuscript is 138 pages long and should be published within the next few months. I was planning to begin the Thursday evening Bible study on ZOOM in September. However, counseling has increased significantly for right now and so I am going have to hold off beginning the study. As soon as I am able, I will begin the new study titled “A Study of Accurately Handling the Word of Truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15). The purpose of this series of studies is to confirm in the Faith those who may be questioning or desiring to strengthen their understanding of biblical truths and how to rightly divide the Word, and to instruct those who desire more clarity in the great cardinal doctrines of the Christian Faith in these final days of Apostacy.

Personal Note from —
Roger & Diane
Needless to say, it has been a busy six weeks here at home. The main office for the Center is located in one room of our house since nearly all sessions are national and international and are completed through ZOOM or SKYPE.
Scheduling can become a challenge at times as we are working with counselees in time zones around the world. I was asked to speak to a Church in Australia at their Wednesday evening service several months ago. To do that I had to be ready to speak on ZOOM by 6am on Wednesday as Melbourne is 13 hours ahead of us. We schedule everything based on our Eastern time. Zone.
Then there was the individual in Astonia which is located in northeastern Europe on the Russian border. I would work with this individual after he got off work at 9:00pm which was 3:00pm our time. He did not have internet so he would stand in the dark, heavy coat and hat, to protect against the cold, on the steps to the city library so as to have internet access.
When counseling an individual in North Vietnam I would be ready to begin counseling at 8:00am which was 8:00pm their time. That was the best time for her to do counseling based on her job and other issues.
Medically we are generally doing well although there are those aches and pains as we move along serving our Lord as best we can. I have another hip which is going to need replacing but for now they are going to do an injection in it using some type of x-ray to make sure they get the injection in the right place. Slowly becoming more bionic (don’t be jealous fellas). Already replaced are 2 knees, 1 hip, and 1 shoulder. I would think Diane would be impressed living with a bionic man but …….. Oh well!
We are going to be spending a few days at Julie’s house in Alabama to try to be helpful to her and the family there. I will take my computer and counselee files with me and set up shop in the bedroom at Julie’s as the counseling load continues.
One final note. We truly appreciate your prayers and financial support which helps us to continue to serve those who are hurting and in need. Regardless of their ability to pay for counseling we never refuse anyone due to their financial problems. This is only possible through your continued partnership with us.
God bless you all,
