Dear Prayer Partner and/or Supporter:
For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. Isaiah 45:18. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Isaiah 45:22
Greetings in the precious love of our Lord Jesus. I am making my way through the Scriptures and marvel at the patience of our great God. God’s response to fallen man is demonstrated over and over by His long suffering and patience. He also demonstrates the same towards His imperfect children like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses etc. I believe we would all concur He has been patient with each one of us even through our times of folly.
I have been challenged as the COVID 19 makes itself known all over the world in such a short time. God always uses the things He has created to judge not only His people but even the world of humanity. Man fights to deliver himself from things that are way beyond man’s control. The Mission has been open through it all because of the COVID 19 effect around the globe and it has touched almost if not all the countries where IGM has a presence. The Mission exists to reach the world for Christ, yet at the same time those on the frontlines who have far less than we do in the
USA need our encouragement and financial help. This is why we have a World Relief Fund for such things as COVID 19.
Two precious pastors have become trapped here in the US until our country and theirs opens up the doors for travel. Both have had services canceled and Nancy and Holly are doing what needs to be done to show our hospitality and care for them. By God’s grace all our staff are safe.
There are many things that weigh on our heart concerning the present and future of IGM. Your prayers are always welcome and hearing from you is always a blessing. I am very thankful that Russ and Joyce Alexander were able to return back from Kenya just in time. They are almost done with their 14 days of self quarantine. Romans 13 makes it very clear to pray for our leaders 2 Chronicles 7:14 says it all for our day, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
We are trusting that the Lord will provide the pastors who have been invited and never be en in the USA to be able to attend our Mission Training Conference August 25 31, and team travels September 1 October 11. Also, please pray with us that many all over the world, will come to the salvation of our Lord this year. What a glorious opportunity we have in this day to share the Gospel with those who have no hope and are filled with fear. God loves you for your faithfulness and the Newharts are grateful for your faithful prayer and /or financial support. I am encouraged that our Lord is coming soon for His bride. Be safe and follow the instructions of our government leaders during this world wide pandemic of the COVID 19 virus. Thank you and God bless as you serve Him.
Sincerely, in His Matchless Grace,
Gary and Nancy Newhart
