We have worked closely with these ministries and found them to be on God' agenda and not mans in supporting our troops.

Phil....outstanding encouragement to not weary in our work for God.
Appreciate it....please visit my devotional website: www.faith2change.com
It is part and portion to a daily devotional ministry written and emailed to
Servicemen deployed and stationed overseas and to others in the US desiring
to have 'fresh manna' in the morning....additionally, provides distribution
of books to those who request books based on those listed on the resources

transitioned it to me in November....
Appreciate the word...yes, we must keep on keeping on knowing its not about
us, But Its about Him.

that comes from the mouth of God.’ “ Matthew 4:4, Deut. 8:3

man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. II Timothy 3:16, 17

Wilma grew up in rural Yuba, Wisconsin, on a dairy farm. She attended church from birth and was saved at an early age. The

Ralph finished Moody Bible Institute in January of 1965. Their first child, Rebecca, was born in February. Having applied
