I hope you and your family had a great Christmas. All of our family was with us on Christmas Day. Not too long before we had dinner, it began to snow. It was a beautiful snow and we ended up getting a couple of inches. In Texas, we very seldom see snow and to have it on Christmas Day was really beautiful. It certainly added to the atmosphere of that glorious day.
We did not have meetings the last two weeks of the year and we really need some help to make up the deficit that we now find ourselves in. Please pray that we can raise $17,000 to help Tim Lee Ministries start the new year off right.
2013 is a historic year for our ministry. On January 14, 1973, on a Sunday evening, I went forward in my dad’s church and announced my call to the gospel ministry. Two weeks later, I preached my very first sermon in my dad’s pulpit. On January 1, 1979, my family moved to Oklahoma to begin our ministry in full time evangelism. This year will mark 40 years of preaching and 35 of those as an evangelist. I did pastor for nearly five years but during that time God was getting me ready for this ministry. We have been in thousands of revivals and special meetings with untold numbers of people coming to Christ. There are some of our Patriotic Partners and some of our supporting churches who have been supporting us since the beginning. How could I possibly say thank you in the right way? We are praying that 2013 will be an exceptional year for this ministry and a great year for all of our family and friends who support and pray for this ministry!
With the month of December being a short month we only have a couple of meetings to report. On December 2nd, we were at North Point Baptist in Carrolton, Georgia. This was our third time to be with Pastor Rodney Agan and the people at North Point. We had good services both Sunday morning and evening with several decisions being made for the Lord.
The last meeting to report and ending on a very high note, was on December 8-9 at Southside Baptist Church in Warner Robins, Georgia. This is truly one of the great churches in Georgia and even throughout the United States. It is a church that has grown from 125 to an average of over 3,000! They worked hard to bring visitors and when the invitation was given people came and they kept coming. Over 120 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ as they called upon the name of the Lord for salvation!! Thank you Pastor Jerry Walls and the good people at Southside for making it a great day for Tim Lee Ministries as well!
Please look over the prayer list and be faithful to pray for those requests. Also pray hard for us to get out of the financial crunch that we find ourselves in. We are also needing to buy a new folding machine. The cost is right at $900 and we are soon needing to print more of our Deadline Vietnam gospel tracts and the cost for those is $5300.
