July Newsletter 2021

Greetings DOZ friends!

I pray that this newsletter finds you well and enjoying the wonderful benefits of the Lord. Since my last newsletter, we have had a break in covid and the restrictions on wearing a mask. Praise the Lord! Certainly the last couple of years have been extremely challenging and a time to exercise our walk of faith. Many suffered from the covid virus, and some have lost precious loved ones. Through it all, God has shown Himself to be faithful and has helped us walk through these difficult times. I pray that you will continue to walk in health. Also, know that your loved ones that have gone on, are waiting for you just on the other side.

As I am writing this newsletter, I am reminded of an old western movie that I was recently watching. (Yes, I like old westerns) In this movie I saw a sign on the jail that said “Wanted: Dead or Alive.” In many western movies you will see this sign and it usually references an alleged gun-slinging cowboy, bank robber or cattle thief. Often a sheriff’s posse is rounded up to hunt down the outlaw. If the character is already dead before the posse arrives, the posse moves on. As I thought about this, the Lord showed me that it is much like us. In our big life show today, we can consider ourselves dead to sin in our mortal bodies because we have received Christ. The enemy may be in charge of the posse coming at us, but greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. He may be coming at us hot and heavy trying to bring us down, but when he finds that our old man is dead because our new man is alive in Christ, he will move on to someone who is still on the run. Romans 6:11 “In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” I am so thankful to know that no matter what we go through, as a child of God we never go through it alone because God has promised to never leave us or forsake us. Just remember, child of God, He will always make a way of escape for you. He is the Way Maker!

I want to personally thank you for donating so generously to the ministry. It is because of loving people like you that we are able to do all that God has called us to do. Many lives are being affected every day because of your love for those less fortunate. I know that one day you will hear the Father say, ”Well done good and faithful servant, enter your rest.”

Praying God’s richest blessings over you!
I love you,

These are our Honduras kids being fed, physically and spiritually. They are being taught the Word of God and over the years, hundreds have come to know the Lord as their personal saviour. They are no longer walking in darkness. with no hope and in despair. Now they know that Jesus is their hope and their lives will never be the same. Thank you for helping us to share the love of Jesus with them!

“When you have done it to the least of these, You have done it unto Me.” Matthew 25:40

February Newsletter 2021

Greetings in the Name of Jesus,

I hope this newsletter finds you all well and enjoying the wonderful benefits of the Lord. As we enter into a new and challenging time for our country and with all the recent changes in our government, it has brought me to my knees seeking answers and direction for the days ahead. God has been faithful to speak to my spirit through His Word. I heard the Lord say, ”I have always had a Remnant.” My intelligent reply was, “What does that mean, Lord?”

As I began to research and study this deeper, He took me to 1 Kings 19. Here we see the prophet Elijah displaying the same human characteristics that we display; fear, discouragement, depression and hopelessness. Paraphrasing: Jezebel was after Elijah hoping to kill him and Elijah was fearful and fleeing for his life. While he was fleeing possible death, he should have stopped and ran straight to the Lord. Haven’t we all done this same thing at various times in our life? He was so depressed that he prayed for God to kill him, but God had another plan for his life. Elijah said, “The enemy has killed all of your prophets and I am the only prophet left.” 1 Kings 19:14 Have there been times in your life when you have felt so alone, no one understood what you were going through and you wondered where God was in your situation? Well, child of God, He was there just as He was with Elijah. God’s response to Elijah was you’re not the only one, I have a Remnant! God has always had a Remnant! We are not alone, there is a multitude or a Remnant that God has called for such a time as this.

Maybe today you feel discouraged by the turn of events in our world. But, child of God, be encouraged! God has a mighty Remnant that He is raising up to usher in the next mighty move of God. I believe that we are entering the last days and we will see multitudes come to know the Lord. (Acts 2:17) We get to be a part of it. Praise the Lord! It is time to shake off fear of the “what ifs” and remember God’s promises to His children, “I will never leave you nor forsake you. I am your ever present help in time of trouble.” He has a plan and He is working all things for our good. Can I get an Amen? So be encouraged! Greater things are yet to come!

I just want to say thank you for your continued support to DOZ! Because of your faithfulness, we did not cut back on the feeding program to our kids in Honduras or any other mission programs. You are such a blessing and we love and appreciate you so much.
Serving Him Joyfully,

In Loving Memory
