We are optimistic about our future because Jesus is in control. But, it becomes more obvious daily there is uncertainty in this world. Nevertheless, we know without a doubt that God has called The Cubit Foundation to:
1) Work for Him in the Muslim world;
2) Challenge believers like you to pray for the persecuted Christians daily;
3) Minister for Him in Latin America( Brad is the director of our Latin efforts)
So, thank all of you so much for your continued love, support and prayers. It is because of you and your support that we can continue doing what God wants us to do.
We are thankful to Brad, our board of directors, Carrol Holman as she holds down the fort while we are away, and others who helped us during my recovery. But, God has been consistent throughout this roller coaster ride, and His faithfulness has been non-failing. After my recovery, Paula and I started traveling in the USA, to PA, MD, SC, TN,TX , GA,OH and OK.
We also traveled to Europe & Egypt finally coming home in November. What a blessed time!
Never before did I feel the hand of God on me and excited about what this coming year will hold in Egypt. Never before were there open Christian Churches in Cairo. Never before have the Christians been able to worship more freely. But, not all countries have this newly approved freedom. Presently, there are 57 Islamic countries that do not have this level of freedom.
We shared with you the plight of the persecuted Christians wherever we went, appealing to you to pray for the persecuted believers a minimum of 5 minutes each day. Persecution of believers in Jesus is very much alive in today’s world. In just the first 10 months of this year (2016) more than 175,000 believers died for the cause of Christ
(Nine out of every ten of these martyrs were Muslims who converted to Christ.) Some of you may not be able to personally go to these places to serve the persecuted believers, but as you give or pray for these persecuted, you are, in reality, as much a part of meeting their needs as those who are physically on the ground ministering.
