Yesterday was Shirley’s and my 47th wedding anniversary. I’m so grateful for the godly wife that God gave me in 1976.
This week my heart aches for the nation of Israel which was attacked by terrorists with great loss of life. I am praying for the peace of Jerusalem and justice for the Hamas murderers.
But today I want to honor YWAM founder Loren Cunningham who graduated to heaven early Friday morning, October 6, at the age of 88.
I thank God for Loren Cunningham.
I’ve never been big on conspiracy theories though the blocking of the JFK assassination papers from the public makes me wonder what’s being hidden. Fortunately, in the the next life, everything will be revealed (Luke 12:3). I’m sure we’ll be shocked about “what really took place” in history.
I do believe in one conspiracy the Bible describes and is caricatured in C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters and Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness:
The devil and his demons conspiring to destroy human beings.
During the past one hundred years, if I were the devil, what would I do?
Many of you know that Loren Cunningham, the founder of Youth With A Mission, has been diagnosed with fourth stage lung cancer. When the disease was discovered last November, the doctors told him he had “weeks, not months, to live.”
Then the YWAM family and others began praying for him, and not only did the pain go away, but God has sustained him for eight months and counting.
Loren has used his “borrowed time” to share with the YWAM family all over the world via ZOOM talks. Many of us feel these messages are loving marching orders from our founding leader.
Last week Loren Cunningham spoke via ZOOM to the leaders of the Americas. He shared with us one of God’s dreams.
