THE 3RD COVENANT to be released!
That's right, my first novel is to be released May 22nd of this year.
Anyone interested in a copy should check the online bookstores (Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, etc.) a few weeks after the release
date. If they don't have it, then pester them for it,
and send me the name of the store and I'll see if I can set up a book signing. While this may be a difficulty in states
that are far away, it may be a real possibility for those states nearby. So if you'd like an autorgraphed copy and the
chance to meet me send me the name of the store and I'll do some pestering of my own. Most of all, pray for me.
This part of the road I'm not familiar with and only want to please the Lord. It's not about me, but about people finding
Jesus as their Savior.
As of 11:30 PM (Central
Time) Ethan Scott Brollier came into the world making my wife and I grandparents for the first time. Ethan is the son
of my son, Brent and his wife Laura. Both beautiful Christians working towards a ministry in missions. Ethan was
9 lbs. 8 ozs. at birth and 22 inches long. He's healthy and strong. Pray that Jesus will be the focus of his life
in all things. Thanks.
Special update on Hope of Glory Ministries.
Continue to remember them in your prayers and, if the Lord so moves you, in supporting them. I am trying to create a
balance between letting God's people know there is a need, leaning on the power of God and His Word, as well as following
His Leading and being blessed in our giving. We all cannot give to everyone. Nor should every ministry make us
feel guilty if we don't support them. Yet we should allow God to direct us to those He wants us to support.
For those who wish to donate to Hope of Glory Ministries you may send
money via Western Union to the following address:
Mr. dokka Banerjee babu
Hope of Glory Ministries (India)
Vijayawad, A.P 521139
Now to your giving. Follow the map given to us by our Lord.
You've heard it said, "Charity begins at home"? Well that's true. In Acts 1:8 Jesus talks about the disciples
receiving power to witness. He lists it this way, "...in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost
part of the earth". NEVER give your money to a missionary cause until you have FIRST given to the local church that
feeds your soul and spirit. Give first to those in YOUR Jerusalem, then to those in the outlying cities, towns, counties,
states, and finally to countries around the world. As you do, always make sure "home" is taken care of first.
So while I talk about this dear brother in India, make sure those around you are being reached by the power of the love of
God first. There is one exception to this. If God specifically directs you to give to something,
then do so.
Moving On to Other Things.
The donation link is still on the links page, but I've been wondering
if you would like me to research and put up a link where people can get free Bibles. There are those out there.
I think it would be advantageous to do so and am waiting for some input. God may direct, but a lot of times God directs
through His people.
New Articles Are Showing up All the Time
I have a book that is currently in the pre-production stage, meaning
it's waiting to be assigned to an editor, but has been accepted for publication. It's a Christian suspense/mystery/detective
novel, and my first venture into the world of being a "published author". All prayers are thoroughly welcome.
Just so that you know, I rather doubt this book will make me rich, and that wasn't even my intent. My intent was to
reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ while entertaining them with a good mystery. I had a lot of fun writing
it and I hope all my readers have at least as much fun reading it. I don't have a publication date yet, but I'll let
you know when I do. The name of the book is, "The 3rd Covenant"
Finally I pray that each of us grow closer to the Lord, and to one another.
For this is His will. May God bless you all and give unto you those things which He so desperately wishes to bestow
upon His children.
