FROM THE DESK OF JOHN S. TORELL
August 23, 2010
It has been a month since I wrote and
informed you of our financial situation. Many of you responded and we received
enough money to cover the most urgent needs in the ministry. Praise the Lord; we
were able to pay all current bills for the month of July!
One person informed us four months
ago that he would commit to give us the money for the paper to print Christian
Dynamics Course 1. His last check came in two weeks ago and we purchased the
paper for $3,069. This specially designated money did not come from the general
fund but from this man and we are very thankful for this victory.
We also want to thank the faithful
people who help month after month. God is using your dollars to help us reach
more people who are accessing our audio and video content from the church
services during the week. The church building is where all webcasting
originates, and if we lost the building, there would be no webcast. We are
therefore trusting God to bring in the funds for the rest of rent for the month
There is no doubt in my mind that the
Devil has pulled out all the stops to destroy ministries who are exposing him.
Today I received a letter from my good friend, Lawrence Patterson in Cincinnati,
Ohio, who informed subscribers of his newsletter, “Criminal Politics,” that he
is retiring and won’t be sending out any more newsletters. He is around 75 years
old and shared a medical report from his doctor that he has been diagnosed with
stage one of Alzheimer’s and that he now has difficulty with his memory. I was
shocked and sad since I had the privilege of meeting Lawrence in the early
1990’s and then in Sacramento just a few years ago and found him to be a very
warm friend that cared for people.
Ted Pike is the founder of the
“National Prayer Network” and he has been in the forefront of fighting abortion,
the homosexual lobby, Christian Zionism and taken on such “anti-hate” groups
like the ADL and ACLU. Some weeks ago I was informed that Ted’s wife had been
diagnosed with a brain tumor, and after surgery he had to let go of his ministry
in order to care for her. Ted is a minister and I am sure that he did not have
health insurance since most small ministries cannot afford it. Thus Satan has
been able to remove a second strong warrior from the battle.
My friend Gary Kah, the author of
“En Route to Global Occupation,” is battling with health issues while he faces a
financial crunch that creates a heavy burden upon him and his wife.
More than ever, our ministry is
involved and intensely reaching out in winning the lost, healing the sick, and
bringing deliverance to those who seek it. Some of our recently delivered
people are winning souls for Christ and helping to deliver others. We need to
pray for these people who are faithfully serving the Lord in these end times.
We are also at a crucial time in our
ministry with the finances as we are growing and seeing God move, although
every expense is held to the fire of necessity so nothing is being wasted. We
want to continue but we could lose our operating base unless the Lord provides
so that our income is stabilized and increased to match our expenses. We
sincerely appreciate every gift that is sent because you are keeping the
ministry active and productive and the souls that are won are your fruit more
We have been very busy and only been
able to send out a newsletter every other month in conjunction with our church
and website ministries. More people are attending our church but many of them
are not employed at this time. Our team is ministering to people in different
locations in the world and they are being set free from demonic oppression. Our
outreach is larger than it ever has been and it is very uplifting to hear people
tell us how much they appreciate our ministry.
We thank you if you are a regular
giver to our ministry, but if you have never thought about it, would you
consider becoming a supporter of our ministry? Our needs would be met if every
person watching the videos or reading our material would send something. Asking
for money is not something I enjoy doing but it is sometimes necessary if we are
going to continue to minister and reach more people for Christ. May God richly
bless you as you remember our ministry in prayer and send a gift of any amount.
Yours in Christ,
John S. Torell
