Beyond Borders

Dear Friend in Christ,

It was many years ago, when I was about 10 years old, when God visited me through dreams. I came from a Church going family, but was not taught about a personal relationship with God, through Christ. The Father's eyes were then already upon me. I desired to go into the mission field and even had revelations about this, which I had told my mother. Nevertheless, it was not until I was 22 years old when I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord, after my life became troubled.

My personal testimony and how I met my husband can be found on my main Counselor's website.

Together we have been working for the Lord in different capacities, but I never labored in the mission field. Often I wondered if the Lord forgot about me, concerning sending me into the mission. At times it grieved my spirit that I had not reached out beyond the borders.

When I started my counseling ministry in 1994 and went on the WWW in 1997, providing free counseling, I soon realized that people from all over the world were visiting my websites and many of them requested counseling. I began to write more and more helpful and encouraging writings, and poetic pages for my websites.

Soon people from some 180 countries visited my websites by the ten thousands per month. Several Ministers, Missionaries and Pastors asked permission to translate my writing, to teach and preach them to their congregations, at conferences, bible studies, women gatherings etc.

It became clear to me that God was using a different route, and that the words He revealed to me to write down, crossed the borders of many countries, without me leaving my office. Also, many writings are now translated to be used at mission fields in Pakistan, Ethiopia, Peru, Kenya, India, including Andaman and Nicobar Islands and elsewhere. Even in English speaking countries the writings are used to teach, share and instruct.

How wonderful are God's ways, that through the Internet His messages are crossing borders to bring His truth, without me traveling.

Rev. Thomas Maher of Melur, Tamil Nadu, India has translated many of my writings in the Tamil language. He published three books of which thousands have been printed, and distributed at conferences and gatherings.

Recently, Rev. Maher emailed me that he preached from my writings and distributed the last published book to over 264 ministers at that conference. He wrote further that God moved in a very powerful way. As you can see in one of the pictures, ministers are holding up the booklet which they just had received. It stirred my soul as I viewed the pictures, which were sent to me.

Sometimes we think that God should do things our way, or in the manner we can understand. Surprisingly, the Lord worked in a way I never expected, nor could've dreamed of.
God always amazes me!

Rev. Maher would like to translate all of my writings and will soon publish the fourth book.

Please, pray for him that he may receive the means to publish and print from my website, for God's Glory and the furtherance of His Kingdom. AMEN AND AMEN!!

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Isaiah 52:7
