April 4, 2013

Dear Friends,

I wanted to give you an update of what has happened in the last couple of weeks. As you know from my last report, the members of Resurrection Life of Jesus Church (RLJC) called Bill Chacon to become their new pastor after he indicated that God was calling him back to the ministry. But after having only served for three weeks, he suddenly resigned on March 10th and that created an impossible situation for RLJC to continue to rent the church facilities and also for EAEC where we make our video recordings. I am happy to report that after two weeks we have been able to move out all of our equipment from the church building used as a recording facility.

Prior to dismantling all the recording equipment, I recorded a number of sermons that will last us through the month of April since I didnít know how long it take to get our new recording facility up and running. Our plan was to continue releasing one sermon video per week so that regular video viewers will have uninterrupted access but we have run into problems that we did not anticipate. At this point I donít know if the blame can be laid at the feet of Satan or if it is a software problem.

In analyzing the problem, we realized that some of the software being used is seven years old and no longer supported by the manufacturer. This has necessitated rebuilding a computer, installing a new operating system and replacing the questionable software. We are actively working on correcting this issue and hope to have the computer back up and running soon. I have said this a lot lately, but we covet your prayers greatly; please uphold us in prayer so there wonít be anymore more setbacks.

THE NEW RECORDING STUDIO

It is impossible to set a time when the new recording studio will be completed. As I previously stated, the loss of the church building was a surprise, and while we had begun to lay some contingency plans, we were not fully prepared to pack up, move and reassemble everything at a different location. We are in the process of assembling the studio with its backdrop and control booth. The cameras at the church facility were mounted on ceiling tiles and wonít be installed the same way in the new studio since the ceiling is different and requires different mounting hardware. We have contacted a professional company to help us with this aspect of the installation but this was a cost we did not anticipate and our funds are so stretched at this time that we donít know where the money is going to come from to pay for this added expense. Again, we need much prayer for this hurdle to be overcome.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

Our Internet bookstore has not been affected by this move and orders continue to be filled as they come in. We recently completed two deliverances during the time we moved from the church facility. Both persons came to Sacramento; one was on a lady from Canada and the other one was a man from Georgia. The deliverances were successful and they are now enrolled in our 16 week follow-up program.

The seventh Kabbalah book is almost done; my goal is to write a little every day, but with the move and the two deliverances, there has been no time to complete it. I am also working on a new article that exposes the hidden agenda behind all the talk about gun control.

We continue to have Sunday morning worship service for the EAEC staff and a few people from Resurrection Life of Jesus Church since it is now closed. The sermons I preach on Sundays will be recorded later and made available on our website.

FINANCES

The people who are part of our internet ministry generously gave during the month of March and we were able to meet all our financial obligations. We still have one month of outstanding rent to pay on the church facility but God is faithful even when it seems that the economic situation is hopeless. Since the church has closed its doors, we have come to rely upon the majority of our finances from the internet ministry and the month of April will be a new test of faith. I would rather keep on preaching and writing but it is also necessary to make you aware of our financial situation. I have seen God move countless times in the past and I know that He will continue to provide for our needs through His people. I am excited about the future and look forward to working together in the Lordís harvest.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor John S. Torell
