From a student in Arkansas

From a student in AR… I have learned to put my faith in God's facts instead of my feelings. I have learned that wise thinking produces right actions. I have learned so much more about being thankful. I am thankful now for things I never thought about before doing this course. As long as we walk in obedience to God, we can have a clear conscience. Chastening is proof that God loves us. He really loves me a lot! God forgives us of our sins, but we must still face the consequences of our sins. I am still facing consequences of sins long forgiven. God and what God provides for me is all I need. Resentment and bitterness can make prisoners of us. Only forgiveness can set us free. I found this out the hard way. I can love others because God has put His wonderful love in me. I am learning to see God in all my circumstances: good & bad. These lessons have been a real blessing to me. Some were more fun than others. Some hit me pretty hard because of my imperfections. I think this course has made me love my dear Saviour even more....

Bob and Maureen Hoffman 4Q 2016 Newsletter

"When you go on the internet, please pray for the Hoffman Family – your missionaries to Cyberspace."   Volume 29 Issue 04 (November/2016) Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The Latest News:  We took a two week road trip during August. Maureen and I visited many of our supporting churches (and several other churches). We had an opportunity to present the ministry at 6 churches in 5 states in two weeks. A couple of additional churches picked us up for support over the summer. The most common comment I get after I present our ministry is "I never realized how much your ministry does!" In September Bob attended a camp meeting at New Beginning Baptist Church in Edgewood Texas, but had to cut the meeting short for emergency surgery due to a detached retina. Surgery was successful, retina is 100% reattached, gas bubble in eye is expected to be gone shortly after Thanksgiving. Church Website Ministry: We received a request to update information in the Baptist ministries database (Baptist-ministries.org) for Canaan Baptist Church in Monroe North Carolina.  The church had no web page, so I asked if they would like a website. I offered some potential domain names for the church they decided that canaanmonroe.com would be a good domain name.I registered the domain and installed a basic WordPress Website for them. I received an email from the De Hart Family...

From a Pastor We Host Several Domains For…

Bob,  I was going to just fire off an email to you to ask for your help, but thought I would check out your cyber-missions website again, just to catch up with your ministry.   All I can say is, “Wow!” You have a ton of value available there. I think your ministry is one of the best kept secrets in the independent Baptist world.   Personally, I just want to say thank you, especially in as we draw closer to my favorite holiday of the year: Thanksgiving. (Christmas is a little too commercialized for it to be my favorite.)   ———-  Please allow me to say:  Thank You for All You Do! I really appreciate what you do for the sake of Our Lord Jesus Christ....

Christian Business – Romans 1:16

     Without a doubt we are living in perilous times. It is getting to be a tough time to be a Pastor, a Christian Business, a Christian Teacher, a Christian Union member, even a Christian in general.      As a Christian I would like to do business with other Christians, it is hard enough to make a living in this economy, and we should take care of each other.  Unfortunately, it is getting more difficult to find Christians in the business world. Open Christians that is – not “closet” Christians. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.      I am talking about Christian Business people that profess Jesus Christ openly, that maintain Christian principles, Christians whose handshake and whose word is as good as a signed contract. I have to be honest with you. Some of the WORST people I have done business with and some of the WORST people that have worked for me were professing Christians. Collossians 3:23-25 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive...
