GRACE CHRISTIAN OUTREACH MINISTRIES

Dear Friends,

All of us have been through various times of trial during these last five months due to the coronavirus epidemic. Some people’s trials have been harder and more difficult than others.

The good news is that God has promised us that His goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives. No matter what you have gone through in the past, are going through in the present or will go through in the future, please know that God is desiring to show you His goodness and his mercy in your life.

God tells us that “He wants to give us the desires of our heart” and if we “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these things will be added to you”. As we seek God first in our lives, everything else necessary will be added into our life by the Lord. We serve a good God who wants to take care of His children and do good things for them as they put Him in first place and follow after Him!

Several years ago, a friend of the ministry who lived near New York City and who had faithfully provided GCOM with Spanish literature for several years called us and told us that his health had taken a turn for the worse. He told me that he wanted to give me the names and addresses of the ministry organizations that he received Gospel literature from so I would have them if anything happened to him. One of them was based out of Bemidji, Minnesota, about two hours from where one of my brothers live.

When we were in Minnesota, we gave the director, Phil, a call and decided to get together at his house. As we talked to him and his wife, we saw that our ministries had a lot in common and we had a very enjoyable time together.

As we were about to leave to our next destination, Phil told us that he had many boxes of literature, in different languages such as Romanian, Russian, Greek, Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese and also tracts in English focusing on reaching Native Americans across the United States, that he would like to give to us to distribute. He also had 24 boxes of tracts in Spanish that he gave us which we got out quickly. Getting the literature in other languages out was very slow due to lack of time when I am home from Mexico.

This extended time working from home has allowed me to get many of those things done and recently, we went online and found churches across the United States that had church services in these languages. We then mailed each church that wanted literature a large post office box of Gospel tracts in their language. These churches are using these Gospel tracts to share the plan of salvation with many hundreds of people in their native language. Please pray that many people come to Christ through the distribution of these Gospel tracts!

While I have been unable to go to Mexico, Sylvia and I have been able to get out many English New Testaments and Gospel tracts to the homeless at stoplights in Austin. Our End Times fliers and books of John continue to go out in the cities of Mexico City, Puebla and San Luis Potosi. Some of this literature also is transported by pastors to other parts of MexicoThe plan was for the semi- truck full of ministry supplies to head down to Mexico August 21s but unfortunately, the trucking company did not have a trailer available.

We are praying, waiting and believing God that, in His perfect timing, the trailer will be made available for the ministry supplies to be brought to the border. The printer in Omaha, Nebraska who provides our Gospel tracts, booklets, and books of John is unable to continue printing until their warehouse is emptied. This in turn limits the amount of literature we are able to distribute in Mexico. Please pray that the trailer will be available soon.

BIRTHDAY THANK YOU

Thanks to all of you who sent me birthday wishes in August! It was so nice to be remembered on my 50th birthday! Due to people’s generosity, we were able to purchase over thirteen hundred large-print Bibles for the spiritually hungry Mexican people and several pallets of beans to feed the physically hungry people. You are such a blessing to me and the people of Mexico.

THANK YOU

Thanks to all of you who have helped us during this month or two of finances being down. We could not do what God has planned for GCOM if it weren’t for each of you doing your part for God’s kingdom. We thank God and we thank those of you who were led to help out during this time.

May God bless all of you during this challenging time. We must keep our eyes on Jesus and He will bring us through it by His grace! We love and appreciate all of you!

Serving Christ,

Rev. Kevin, Sylvia and Joshua Rosendah
