From a 7 year old -
for the coats you gave me. Thank you for the stickers, sticker album,
the cat tray, the clothes, the iron, the juice and the other stuff.
We really enjoy it. I like you (Teresa) and Max a lot! All
the stuff was a Jesus gift. After you left mom held her things like
they were her toys or something.

page and got touched by John Parker. How is he doing and when is the
last time you have talked to him?
That is God's grace and love, being actively displayed on a human level. I also loved the following note.
Be an active partner with the Holy Spirit - willing for the Spirit to change your agenda and your priorities to line up more with God's desires.
times I feel like I have an agenda and need to get my priorities done.
Wow, that is not serving God that is serving myself. What is important to
God might not be getting my car washed, or my grocery shopping done right
then. It might be ministering to someone in need.
From a student in Minnesota
Dee, I want to thank you for your strong Christian presence on the web and giving me hope that there are a few people in this nation that do take God and His Word seriously.
I found time this morning to look at the page that you referred me too. WOW! This is EXACTLY what I was looking for.
I know that there are many verses in the Bible on this topic, but I am running short on time and I really want to present a good presentation.
Thanks a lot, you saved me probably 4-8 hours of work. I don't have a lot of extra time these days. I have a full-time job (Database Administration Manager) and I spend some time each night helping the Somalian war refugee families who are moving to our town.
My presentation is on the topic of what our "Missions Group" is doing locally. It will be given to our church (3600 members). Thanks again.

From a ministry in San Antonio
So many Christian ministries out there have fund raising tactics that are immoral or unethical. So many people who say they are Christians don't act like it at all.
Last October I met with a man who is one of the city leaders of a nationally well known ministry. This was not in San Antonio. [This was in regard to getting support for her budding ministry]
I was told by him that I HAD to create fund raising letters with very sad stories, send them to Pastor's homes (not the church) so his wife would read the letter and then entice her husband to support my ministry. When I mentioned George Mueller, this Christian leader yelled at me and said if I didn't do that I would not get money. I don't believe God wants me to use manipulation to raise funds.
We decided that we wanted this ministry to be based more on the way he fund raised (trusting God), instead of the way the world seems to be fund raising. I often feel like I am totally alone. I rarely meet a person who truly trusts in the Lord and is willing to do anything God may call that person to do. It is therefore really refreshing to meet someone who is putting into practice what the Bible commands us to do.
Thanks for putting up this web. Also I am grateful for your e-mails of encouragement. We have never met, but I feel that you are a friend.
