It is hard to believe we are in our third month of 2018 but time marches on. Time flies by and there is much to do in the work of the Kingdom of God. I am more conscious than ever to be about the Father’s business and I want to be careful to stay in His will day by day. I don’t mind being busy just as long as I am flying with God; it is of no value to be flapping our wings for no good purpose. This means that we have to occasionally say no and that always leaves someone disappointed. The urgent thing is not always the best thing.
Coming up this month is our CrossWalk on Good Friday, March 30th. This is a public witness and a personal prayer walk for the cross-bearers who will be taking the cross from the Coosa River in Gadsden, Alabama to the Tennessee River in Guntersville, Alabama (a 33 mile journey northward on U.S. Highway 431). There are ten different legs of this journey as different individuals take a 2 to 4 mile trek. This is a very humbling experience as we remember Jesus bearing our sins on the cross.
Last month, I gave a brief review of my Journey to India and the things I experienced there still weighs heavy on my heart. The Christians in India are a small minority in that predominantly Hindu nation. They have many things to deal with that never hit our radar. For instance, Pastor Reddy has a difficulty of renting a home because he is a Christian.
Just a few weeks ago, I was privileged to have a face to face meeting with a Christian brother from Pakistan. I have known of him for a few years and have communicated with him for maybe one year. He was in Alabama for a short visit and I was able to spend a day with him. He has a Christian school in this majority Muslim nation. He shared some of his difficulties simply because he is a Christian. We have been assisting him for a number of months. Christian persecution is a real thing around the world. God has called us alongside our brothers and sisters in some of these difficult spots around the world.
So in the light of Christians in difficult places, we are booked on flights to Cuba in April for a return visit. Gerald Hubbard will be traveling with me on this trip, where we seek to encourage and bless our brothers and sisters in Christ. Please pray for us—pray for favor, protection, anointing, and divine appointments. We are going as vessels for God to use for His purpose and glory and we leave the results up to Him.
Thank you for your prayers, financial support, and encouragement. This ministry now touches the lives of about 2,000 people each week with spiritual bread and about 400 each week with physical bread. This does not just happen; it is the result of God’s blessings and people like you who pray, give, minister, and work in the Name of Jesus.
Thank you for being on the journey with us!!
Rejoicing in the salvation which is by grace through faith, I am…
Yours on the Journey,
Harry L. Whitt
