This is a picture of the Easter lily. I did not plant it, but it showed up in one of my flower gardens. It reminds me of how God plants his laborers in the field of this world. They are the light of the Word and represent God's love for mankind. As soon as a heart is open, God sends that light across their path.

Here in the Darien, hundreds are getting born again in the refugee camps. The refugees are from all over the world. When the virus broke out, the government put together a team to go into the camps. The team was made up of medical people who spoke the languages of the refugees. The head of the Board of Health is a pastor. His team are Christians. They administer medicine and pray for everyone who will let them.

They let one evangelist go in with the medical group. He said that people who have lived in countries with a law against Christianity are hearing the gospel for the first time. They are being converted because they said they never heard of Jesus and the price he paid for their salvation. In the evenings, they hold open-air crusades. He said it's beautiful hearing people worship God in so many different languages.

This is the great harvest of souls we have all been waiting for.


Every year, our children receive Christmas boxes from Samaritan's Purse. Thank you for doing this. It is such a blessing to the children who never get a toy or anything special.

Moving forward, each month, we will be highlighting a student or group of students in one of our Sunday schools.

Please add them to your prayer list for the month.


Every one of the Cook family are doing well. No one has had the virus. PTL.
