"I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.  Pray that I may be kept safe from the unbelievers in Judea and that the contribution I take to Jerusalem may be favorably received by the Lord’s people there,  so that I may come to you with joy, by God’s will, and in your company be refreshed.  The God of peace be with you all. Amen." Romans 15:30-33 NIV

Our journey to Sri Lanka begins in just a few days. There is no greater joy than following the call of God - knowing deep in our hearts that He has planned this great adventure, and will continue to guide us every step of the way.

Like Paul, we covet your prayers.  For wisdom, guidance, protection, favor. For signs and wonders and many to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Praying over eye glasses destined to bless a life in Sri Lanka.

You are a vital part of all we do.

Thank you on behalf of "The Least of These".

It is hard to believe that we are in a New Year!  Where did 2015 go?

Yesterday, Pat and I read a quote from William MacDonald, which said, "A timely word - spoken at just the right time to meet a particular need - how good it is!"  

We want to remind you that God always has a timely word for us.  The Word of God encourages, comforts and exhorts us in our hardest and most difficult times.  As we each prepare to launch into a new year, let's make a renewed commitment to daily Bible study.  Fall more in love with God's Word this year, and you will find a timely word for every day and fresh hope for every hour. Remember that God is always in control!

We are excited to announce that we will be leaving for Sri Lanka, February 8 through March 10th!

An added bonus is that Pat's younger sister, Cyndy Hull, will be accompanying us for the first two weeks. Cyndy has a powerful anointing to lead people into the presence of the Lord in worship and a special gift for teaching children.

Please be praying for us for wisdom, guidance and anointing of the Holy Spirit as we continue to express His love to the Sri Lankan people through:
  • Eye Vision Clinics
  • Revival Crusades
  • Healing Conferences
  • Church Ministry
Pat and I are praying for you to walk into your purpose and destiny in a deeper way then ever before. May this be the best year you have ever experienced in the Lord!

For the least of these - Gary and Pat
