2018: Looking Forward with Hope
This is 49th year of ministry for Grace Fellowship International. God used Dr. Charles Solomon to clarify and integrate the fuller message of the Cross with an effective, reproducible, personal counseling approach. The ministry grew to six offices around the country, and eventually to a network of over 100 ministries (known as Network 220). Ministries around the world use Handbook to Happiness (available in 10 languages) and/or the Wheel and Line tract (available in over 45 languages freely online). Pastoral Counselors are supported through our international budget in India, Romania, Kenya, and South Africa.
We request prayer for these projects:
*The publication of the Spanish translation of For Me to Live is Christ. This 8 lesson workbook presents the basics of the wheel and line message in an inductive format. The English workbook videos have been used in churches and small groups since 2014. The Spanish videos of Para Mi el Vivir es Cristo have been produced recently and are now available online and by DVD.
*The completion of our newest CEU course: Christ Centered Addiction Recovery. Addictions, especially to drugs and alcohol, are devastating to individuals and families. We will summarize this category of life-controlling problems and show how to help someone through Spirituotherapy, freedom in Christ, and supportive grace discipleship resources.
*Spiritual Renewal Retreat for pastoral couples. Last summer we piloted a three day retreat for pastors and their wives in scenic Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It is an opportunity to “come apart and rest a while” with two worship & fellowship meetings and a personal prayer and share session. We are planning another retreat in the spring and seek the Lord’s guidance on whom to invite and how to best minister to them.
Thanks for your prayers for these projects!
Video lessons for the How to Exchange Your Life for a New One booklet. This bookletby Dr. Phil Jones is an excellent entry level evangelism and discipleship resource. The study is being used to welcome church visitors, in prison ministry, on mission trips and more. Pray for the three teachers who are preparing to teach two lessons each.
