A Scriptural passage that has been very meaningful to me
in recent days is found in Matt 13:3b, "Behold, a sower
went forth to sow".
This speaks of our Heavenly Father sowing seed in order
to bring forth a harvest. He "sows" the Word of
the Kingdom in the hearts and lives of" receptive soil",
and then waits for a harvest. He is actively doing His part.
Therefore, this places a responsibility upon us, that the
"soil of our being" might be fully prepared to receive
this "Seed of the Kingdom".
As this produces a harvest in our lives, we are to sow this
"Word of the Kingdom" faithfully in the hearts and
lives of a hungry and desirous people. Pinecrest Bible Training
Center and the Banner are called to this ministry, in cooperation
That we might be a faithful steward of this calling, we
urgently seek your prayer and financial support. This ministry
of publishing the Banner and training lives (sowing), cannot
continue apart from your active interest and support.
School began this fall with an outstanding group of young
people, who came from many places and backgrounds, and intensely
desire to be prepared for His purposes. The quality of this
group is a challenge to us, that our Lord might find what
He is looking for, when He returns for the harvest. We feel
that this school year will be a very special time of Spiritual
growth and visitation.
Pray with us that the Lord will fully have His way at Pinecrest
in this school year. Your support and interest helps make
It is my desire and prayer that the Banner will continue
to be "Kingdom seed", and a blessing and encouragement
In His Eternal Love,
