MAY, 2004

Dear Fellow Believers,

Christian salutations to the saints "…and faithful in Christ Jesus. Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ." Ephesians 1: 1, 2

We thank the Lord for your faithful prayers and financial gifts on our behalf as we live and serve the Lord Jesus here in Australia. Before we get too far into the letter we want to thank all those who remembered David's birthday with a card. David was reading a booklet the other day by John Bunyan and realized that next year he will be Bunyan's age when Bunyan went to be with the Lord. If you are wondering what Bunyan's age was at his death it was sixty. Bunyan is quoted as saying "I never knew all there was in the Bible until I spent those years in jail. I was constantly finding new treasures." Bunyan gave us Pilgrim's Progress from those years in jail. Perhaps some of us need some jail time?

This year as a couple we are endeavouring to read our Bible through four times. One of our supporting pastor's said in a book he wrote that he reads his Bible through seven times each year! That spurred us on to attempt four times this year and perhaps more the next. We will see. We trust you too are learning that "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4.

Please continue to pray for our unsaved friends: Bob and Elizabeth, Adrian and Anne, Mark, Peter, Ian, Matthew, Brent, John and Adam. We are planning to go to Tamworth to visit Adrian and Anne sometime in the next few months. They used to live here in Dubbo and moved closer to Tamworth about two years ago to be close to Anne's mother. We gave their name to Pastor West at the independent Baptist church there in Tamworth and he has been by to visit them several times. Adam works for the Toyota dealership here in town. David has given him several tracts which he has read. Adam has a little saying concerning the four wheel Christian. David stopped by the other week and asked him to write it down and it goes like this: "THE FOUR WHEEL CHRISTAIN; Comes to church in a pram to be christened, a car to be married, a hearse to be buried." Adam said when writing the saying down "I bet you haven't met a heathen like me?" David told him he has met worse. Adam asked why David wanted it in writing and David said he just thought it was unusual. We want to put together a gospel tract around this saying for Adam and others as the Lord brings them our way.

As you pray for these unsaved pray for those believers whom God has given us; Gary, Jim and Margaret, and Jon and Lynne. We would also ask you to remember Jim and Margaret's unsaved children, Bruce, who lives and works for Master Card in Singapore, Jane and her husband Ray who live in Sydney, and Malcolm also in Sydney. Jim gives Jane each month The Australian Biblical Fundamentalist (similar to the Sword of the Lord), has given Malcolm an abbreviated Pilgrim's Progress, and purchased Bruce a Bible. They also gave a Children's Defined King James Bible to their only grandchild, Jane's 12 month old daughter Victoria.

Modern communication via the television and Internet allows us to keep abreast of what is taking place in the United States as well as around the world. One issue that is different here in Australia from the United States is that of abortion. Abortion is not a political issue here so says our present Prime Minister (who is Church of England and supposed to be a conservative) and the Federal treasurer (who is a Baptist). They went on record recently telling the media that abortion was not a political issue here as it is in the USA. This prompted us to do some research and discovered that some

abortionists in Australia receive as much as 1.5 million dollars each year from the Federal government through Medicare to kill the unborn. In our state of New South Wales alone there are forty thousand abortions performed each year. Then we received an email from the Episcopalian News Service Tuesday, April 27, 2004 saying that "Episcopalians joined more than one million people, representing 100 religious and religiously-affiliated organizations and congregations, to march on Washington, D.C., April 25 in support of women's reproductive rights at home and abroad. The march recorded the largest ever crowd count for women's rights in the nation's capital."

Is this not sad when professing "Christians" march for the continued murder of unborn babies? King David said we are "…fearfully and wonderfully made" Psalm 139:14. We say all of this to say that supporting "women's reproductive rights at home and abroad" is the thinking of a people that know not the Lord. The clear command of God is to "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." Matthew 28:19. It is through the faithful proclamation of the gospel that we will see sinners saved by the power of God and changed as the man who abode in the country of the Gadarenes "sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind." 2 Corinthians 5: 17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

John Newton, who lived until he was eighty two, said; "My memory is nearly gone but I remember two things; that I am a great sinner, and that Christ is a great Saviour." Amen to that! Romans 16:27 "To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen."

Serving the Risen and Coming Saviour,

David and Pam
