We Proclaim...

... to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete. I John 1:3-4

This issue of The Forecast contains just a few of the countless 2002 stories. I wrote, read, edited and cried at all that the Lord continues to do through Sunshine After Rain ministries. I hope you share these stories with others, for they are your stories, your testimony and your ministry too! Orphans were hugged and kissed, people with disability were embraced by grace and acceptance, elderly people shared laughter and enjoyed feeling young at heart, and those who can’t dance (after all I am a Baptist) rolled with happiness.

I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
Jn 14:12

As you will see from the schedule, plans are being made, plane reservations confirmed and we set forth with gladness of heart and a focused purpose. As believers we are called into the mission field. Called to proclaim the Good News - Jesus saves! We are taking part in the great Commission, taking the Gospel forth unto the ends of the earth. Some go and some send. I am glad to be your emissary and the King’s Ambassador. I love Him, and enjoy the journey – and in case you had any doubt what my favorite verse is:

I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah 6:8
