A “Thank You” Card Received from a Counselee in Minnesota Who has Just Completed Counseling
[Thank You Prayer & Financial Partners for your help to Keep the Center Assisting Others]
“Roger. I just want to say thank you one more time. I hear very little conversation in my head these days. It’s so peaceful — I have more confidence & Joy. The ambiguity I’ve lived with is gone. The prayers and authoritative wording you gave me are empowering. I understand the demonic empire and the concept of demonization to a greater degree. The “Right of Birth” -whew! Some of it challenged my comprehension level, but it was so intriguing. What a ton of work for you. Thank you for compassionately using your intelligence to help people like me. God bless you, your family & ministry.

Some Food for Thought

One Friday evening recently we attended an area church that put on a passion play about the death and resurrection of Jesus. It was a two hour event. At the end of the event the pastor had an altar call and 20 people responded and made salvation decisions. Then the next evening, on Saturday, one of the teenage girls who had responded to that altar call and trusted Jesus as her Savior, died in an auto accident. How true that after a sermon is presented, the invitation or altar call is the climax of the service.

Description: Altar call at evangelistic meetings I preached in Port-de-Paix, Haiti in 2008, 4000+ were in attendance, 958 salvation decisions. Heaven got a little fuller, Jesus was glorified.

And what a blessing when souls are saved as our job as Christians is to fill heaven. It’s an awesome responsibility that the pastor fulfilled that evening as the Holy Spirit brought conviction. As believers we don’t want anyone slipping past us into eternity without Jesus.

Prayer and Financial Partners

Thank you again for your continuing partnership in this national and worldwide ministry. You are such a blessing to the Center work and to those finding wholeness and freedom through our blessed Savior.

Greetings from Roger and Diane

Greetings to all of our friends, relatives, and prayer and financial partners. We pray that you all are safe, healthy and happy.

We have had a fairly active month and a half with family and friends. At the beginning of March two friends from east Georgia came to visit over a weekend and we had an enjoyable time just visiting and catching up on events and family happenings. Then we spent an overnight visit to Talladega visiting with Jackson and Kye, and, oh yes, almost forgot to mention Julie and Kory too. But then we as grandparents all know who is first on our minds when visiting.

This past weekend the Burel’s were visiting us and we went to Easter Sunday service with Jackson & Kye (and their parents of course), and then hosted Easter Sunday lunch with 17 extended family members visiting, eating and enjoying one another’s company. It had rained all day Saturday, but Easter Sunday cleared up and was a fairly pleasant day.

As I write this newsletter on Monday April 10th Amy is driving in tonight from Cincinnati for a couple days. She will be helping Diane with some of her planting and yard work and we do look forward to her being here with us. My close personal relationship with Arthur-itis (bless his little heart) is becoming more of a pain and assisting me, as always, in losing sleep at night. However, a week ago I stopped by the surgical center and received another shot in the hip and have gotten much relief, if only for a couple months. The doctor keeps saying I’m not ready for a replacement yet and to stick with the shots for now.

We have been praying for all of you and appreciate all you do for us so very much. God is good and we give Him praise and glory for the prayers and financial support you send our way. Thank you all so very much for your support of the ministry and your many prayers. And may our blessed Lord bless you and keep you under His wing.

God bless you all,
