Some two years ago, while studying new testament scriptures, God pit into my spirit to create a web site, a kind of online note book, where I could write down that which he was revealing to me and others could share in what I was learning.
Now this had to be from God because the last thing that I am is a writer, which anyone who has read these writings know to be a matter of fact. But the word of God is true in that His power is manifested in our weakness. After a month or so I began to get emails from pastors in countries like India, Africa and Afghanistan, to name a few, all of whom wrote to tell me what a blessing these writings were to them and their families. Some of them even asked if I would be willing to come to their country to preach the word.
To be very honest I found myself laughing about all of this. Even today, some two years later, when I receive these letters or comments I have to laugh to myself, albeit I feel truly honored and blessed by the sentiments behind the letters. The reason that I find it so humorous is because I think to myself; “if these people truly knew me, if they knew how simple minded I am, if they knew how inarticulate I am, or if they knew how uneducated I am, they wouldn’t let me serve dinner to their families much less trust me with their souls.
Be that as it may, as time went on, more people began to read what I was writing and more people began emailing and posting comments. As of today 05/20/13 this site receives some 2,400 visitors per/month (1,620 of which are returning visitors) That is 28,800 visitors per year (780 new visitors per month). We also get a few phone calls every month from people seeking prayer and ministry. Glory to God!
Subsequently, our mission, simply stated, is to keep doing what we are doing!
Did you really expect more from a simple minded man?
Since our beginning we have made a few additions to our site and our mission.
- We have recently added a Audio/Video Chat area and a facebook type site that we call “The Faithbook Christian Social Network”.
- We have partnered with David Walters Ministries. Pastor David, known in Christian chat circles as “htl” (Honor The Lord), is a wonderful brother in Christ who I was blessed to meet and become acquainted with while helping a sister in Christ develop her online ministry. Since then I am doubly blessed to be able to call Pastor David both a mentor and a friend.
Presently this ministry has partnered with brother David who has been gracious enough to offer to teach our Tuesday Night Bible Study. This topical bible study begins at 10PM EDT and leads off with Live Praise and Worship led by our praise and worship leader brother Nalu (Al).
It is our prayer that, if be God’s will, we will expand our bible study ministry, by adding more studies, and add a Live Sunday Service to our ministry within the near future.
Lastly it is our hope to see the existing Christian web sites, weather they are study oriented, chat oriented or message board and forum oriented, join together, as brother David and I have, as an association of united Christians who are seeking to further the kingdom of God through internet technologies.
But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
