I just love my family! My wife, Kanae, and I will celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary this month, and I am filled with gratitude to God for giving me such an amazing life partner. When I met Kanae, she simply took my breath away, and when she agreed to marry me, I posted that she was “the greatest blessing I’ve ever received after life, salvation, and a relationship with God.”
But God had even more blessings in store, and Kanae and I have welcomed two sons. Kiyoshi will turn four this month, and his brother Dejan is an active one-year-old.
God talks a lot about families in His Word, and those of us who follow Him are called His children. In fact, in 1 John 3:1 we read, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” That is an amazing truth.
As children of God, we have one very important job – to bring with us to heaven as many others as we can! That’s why your partnership with Life Without Limbs is so important. I have been given amazing opportunities to invite people to join us as God’s children – but we can’t do it alone. I need you!
We are launching our new Unstoppable Faith programming, one of our largest undertakings to date, that will enable us to broadcast a message from one location to numerous others. In March, we’ll be piloting this in Anaheim in partnership with The Foursquare Church, simulcasting the six-night event to more than 50 churches. This means a potential reach to 165,000 people – many of whom will hear an invitation to become part of God’s family for the very first time.
Because I consider you a very important member of our Life Without Limbs family, I ask you to pray for this event whenever God brings it to your mind. Wherever you are, I would be so blessed if you would lift up a prayer, asking God to fill the venues with people who need to hear His word, and to use me to show them how to become a child of God.
I also ask you to send a donation today to help us do even more in 2017 to invite men, women and youth to join us as children of God. Your gift of $40, $60, $100 or whatever amount God nudges you to give will be used to tell more people that God loves them and He longs to welcome them into His family.
I’m so excited for our 2017 opportunities to be used by God to expand His family of adopted sons and daughters, people who are facing life without Christ but will find an abundant eternal life in Him. Being a child of God is beyond anything else we might achieve in our lifetimes, and that’s why we share the Good News.
My personal commitment to you is that when you send your gift this month, it will be used to share hope as we tell people the Good News of Jesus and to invite them to join us in the family of God.
You inspire me in this ministry, and I thank God for you!
In Him, Through Him, For Him,
P.S. Please be a heavy lifter for Christ. Your partnership today through your donation and your prayers is so needed as we share the message of salvation to our world. Thank you in advance for your gift – and for your support. Your generosity never ceases to encourage me.
