“Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap it if we do not grow weary.” – Galatians 6:9
New England has the well-deserved reputation of being a spiritually challenging area—some would even say a spiritually dead area. But I am so pumped up by what the Lord is doing in this part of the country. On Saturday, I had the opportunity to speak at Iron Sharpens Iron men’s conferences in Worchester and Hudson, Mass. About a 1,000 men attended and the Spirit of God clearly was present and moving in the hearts of these men.
I believe that Compass is playing a key role in what I pray, is the beginning of a revival in New England. Our New England Executive Director, Yvonne Mitto, has been a gift from our Lord. A native of Jamaica, Yvonne is an extraordinarily godly and capable person. A growing number of people have joined her who are passionate about teaching others God’s way of handling money. The outstanding Blount Radio Network carries our half hour MoneyWise throughout much of New England.
I’m flying out of Boston as I write this blog, and what strikes me is the size of this major metropolitan area with its millions of people. I am deeply saddened. My heart is breaking as I realize most of them do not know Jesus Christ as their savior. They are destined to live separated from Christ throughout eternity in an indescribably dreadful place . . . unless we pray and encourage the work of Christ in this area.
I pray that you’ll join me and Yvonne and her team is praying for God to open many hearts to be receptive to the message of Christ and His way of handling money.
God bless you,
