I just had to share this letter with you all. It
put me on shouting grounds as these letters do every time I get
one and I praise God for Luke's decision. Luke lives in Papua, New
Guinea. What joy floods my soul to see God using the message I
just put on the. 'My Thought for Today' page and sent out this
week to win another lost soul for the kingdom of God. Well Glory!
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect that God would take
this ole preacher, teach him to use a computer, and then make a
web site, and top it off with this online ministry. I am truly
humbled and praise my Lord and Saviour for His love and grace...
If you missed the message, it is still on the "My
Thought for Today" web page. You know what's funny? Well,
perhaps a better word might be 'odd' but most folks at the Allegre
church and around this community don't even have a clue what is
going on concerning this ministry. Many have made comments about
my spending so much time on this computer but and when they call
and talk to Connie ask if Jim is still playing on his computer...
And when they come over won't take the time to let me show them
but very little if anything. It's just seems strange the a person
can reach the world but not the folks in his own back yard. How
true the scripture is which says: John
4: 44, 45a
44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in
his own country. 45 Then when he was come into Galilee, the
Galilaeans received him,
While these folks statements can sometimes become
discourageing it is God who touches the hearts of those who
receive my messages and they write and let me know. If you would
like to know why I spend all the time doing this ministry on
here, it is because of my love for you all and your love for me.
What a blessing for me when I receive your letters and
encouragements. Please let me share some of them with you all...
I'll put just a few I've received on here and you may not want to
read them all but this is the reason this ole preacher MUST keep
on keeping on. *smile* I just want to thank all of you who have
written and shared your love with me...
Blessed day to you in the Name of Jesus,
I am Luke Kingsai, 30 years of age from Papua New
Guinea, one of the Island countries in the South Pacific. I read
one of your email circular titled "The choices we make" and it
convienced me. I though to myself after I finished reading the
email. To choose Jesus Christ as personal Savior is much best than
busying on earthly staffs. Therefore, I closed my eye in front of
my computer screen and confessed to God. "God I am not that
wealthy and worthy to call your ozom name. I am a sinner. I
confess to you with my mouth today that Lord forgive me for my
wrong doings and accept me into your kingdom. Let your Holy spirit
take control over me. Jesus come to my life and be a master. In
Jesus' Name I pray" Amen.
Please pray for me. I am a newly converted youth
in Apostolic church.
Thank you and My Loving God blessed you.

NOTE: A few more encouragements from the US and
around the world...

Thanks Jim for those emails and the very vital
information on Stroke. You know this is timely and a reminder,
just yesterday morning one our fitness instructors passed out
after taking us for the WALK OF LIFE for a charity fundrasing for
the children's hospital in Mt. Hagen-Western Highlands and the Sir
Buri Kidu Heart Foundatin. He was rushed to the hospital by the
SOS unfortunately he died.
We have to be reminder to see the signs and
symptons of these causes of natural death. Thanks again and May
the Lord GOD bless you in your ministry as you spread the word to
all who hunger for it.

Pastor I can't tell you how happy I am to get email from you it is
the highlight of my day.
Thank you so much for sending it. I send it to my children and my

My God bless in all that you do.

I have been reading your mail all this time and
would like to thank you very, very much for the tremendous work
you are doing. It has been a great inspiration to me. Sometimes I
cry and sometimes I laugh and at other times have really taken
away the burdens and worries a poor man like me would encounter
during this hard times in Fiji. Your mails have lifted my
spiritual wellbeing to another level. I thank almighty God for the
gift of you in this world and pray that God will bless you and all
your descendants for the wonderful works you are doing. I will
always be thankful to God for your kindness in sharing the
greatest wealth on earth, the message of Love and the fear of the
Nice going Jim. You make me proud to be a member of your little

touching......thank you once again and GOD Bless you and your
yes Amen Brother Jim.

My dear Jim,
I want to tell you how much this message helped me to understand
why there is evil in this world. The evil and darkness were not
created by God, but by the absence of good and light which God
gives to those who really seek Him, as rightly pointed out by you.
I have enjoyed reading this God-given message by you, and many
other messages you have sent me before, and I am blessed to be a
part of your Flock.
May God bless you and yours richly, and use you in His service.
Jim I'm still playing your song
I'll walk with Him so awesome my friend
Thank you bro Jim so much for your kind
words of encouragement..
may God richly bless your life.
Thank you Mr Keeling, God bless you and your wife
always. Thank you again for sending such beautiful messages, we
all need them so mush in these times. \\
Your sister in Christ,
Good Morning Jim,
Wow, this one is a wonderful message and Newsletter you sent out
!! I enjoyed it very much and it's one of your best. I had not
heard of that singer Marsha Stevens before now. I will know now
not to listen to any of her singing, tho' I probably wouldn't
anyway, as I don't listen to contemporary Gospel music. Just the
ole time southern gospel. I am like you though, the first thing I
do is to look up that name and find out about it before either
putting it on my site or something. It was good to get to talk to
you on the phone yesterday.
Have a great day today! We love yawl,
As I read you letter, I thought of the times that I to have stood
at the mirror and saw someone else staring back at me.....what
happened? I feel young and strong inside. Time is what
happened. its takes its toll on the body but my soul is forever
I try to visualize the person behind the letters that I receive.
Even before you described yourself, I knew you were beautiful. I
felt a Christian love in your writings. Jesus living inside you
makes you beautiful. My husband of 53 years (a Baptist preacher)
reminds people that even his feet a beautiful because he has
carried the gospel for 37 years. God bless you, Jim.
A beautiful, glorious, reverent tribute that warms my heart
and gives peace to my soul. As long as we have people
like you in this old world, we'll be AOK! May God hold you
in His loving arms forever, my friend.
Thank you so much Mr Keeling for all the beautiful
forwards you have sent. How are you and your wife doing? My
prayers are with you and the family. Thank you for showing us
all, how to have such strong Faith in Our Lord.
Thank you brother Jim. I need this message this
May God richly bless your ministry,
Bro. Jim...Thanks for taking the time from your
busy schedule to answer. Many around here are in such a state
over what is taking place, including myself and sister and
brother-in-law. I know the Bible speaks of terrible times for
Christians and I believe every word of it. A friend of mine and I
talked about this just a few hours ago. She is much younger than
I and quoted me chapters in the Bible about the gays. She said it
was wrong during Biblical times and that means it is wrong now and
I said I have said that more than once!! I had a dear young
friend who is gay and I tried to reason with him and how would he
answer his life on Judgment Day?? He clamped his mouth shut and
dropped the subject quickly. No, sorry to say he didn't change
his lifestyle. May I say we are living in scary times?
Bless you for taking a stand!
WOW THANK U BROTHER JIM I HAVE LEARNED THAT

Greetings Brother Jim;
I just wanted to let you know you did a beautiful job with the
poem, "America" GOD Blessed me to write. I also want to let you
know how proud I am that you stand up for the Truth which is found
in GOD's Holy Word, the King James Bible.
Mankind has tried to twist its meaning, deregarded it, and
silence it, but we as Christians know for a fact that GOD's Holy
Word will stand when this world is on fire!!!! Praise JESUS
Brother Jim, Keep up the good work you are doing for JESUS.
Please keep me in your prayers.
GOD Bless you and yours!
Love in JESUS CHRIST,
Until we meet again;
May The Lord Gently Wrap You in His Love,
