God has placed you and your wife on our hearts, and we are so glad that we were able to donate to and bless all those beautiful children and your ministry, but most of all, to honor Father God.
In 2004, Rev. Lee, you spoke to Gus and me at the American Legion Hall one Sunday after church. As we began talking, you literally spoke life into us. You said that God had something great in store for us — so great that we could not even imagine it! You gave me hope with those words, because at that point I had none.
After that, God began to move in our lives. Just a couple of years later, we met you again in the new Harvest Christian Center building. You again repeated those words about God's promise to us. Those words have now come to pass, and God has so greatly blessed us in ways we could not have dreamed!
For one, He made it possible for us to own a home, which was something we didn’t even think about because it was such an impossibility for us. That blessing alone opened many doors for us to be able to minister to others. We opened our home to youth ministry, the homeless, and anyone else who needed God’s love. The Lord took a situation that was so difficult for us and turned it around so that we could bless and reach out to others who desperately needed to feel the love of Christ.
So, thank you, Lee, for those words—the words from God that we clung to and that gave us hope for many years. The promise that one day He would transform lives, which we saw as hopeless, into lives filled with hope and a great desire to bring Him glory! We didn’t want to wait another second or let another day pass to bless your ministry with what God has blessed us with! I am excited to see what God will continue to do in India, and I pray that Gus and I will one day be able to visit.
To help others... is what gets our hearts going! Thank you for what you do and for sacrificing so much to bring hope and life to so many. You are both so amazing!!
