We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine

Lamplighter Theatre-Please Pray!

I hope all is going well and you’re growing in grace…if you are, that would mean you’ve had some struggles lately….”come boldly to the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy, to find grace, to help in the time of need.” The phrase, “in the time of need” means, “in the nick of time!”

Also, I wanted to give you an update on a few things. In the past couple of months, I learned that a missionary family is using Lamplighter Theatre as an evangelism and discipleship tool in Pakistan, and our dramas are being heard now in Singapore, and just last week we learned about this tiny island, Samoa, in the South Pacific is listening to Lamplighter Theatre.

Visit Lamplighter Theatre to see a map and all of the locations of Lamplighter Theatre; you will see that it looks like a military map. We’re now closing in on Japan and China. My goal is to take over the world! Yes, I have always had trouble keeping my goals within normal range. I guess I played the game Risk too much as a child. So this is very exciting to see what God is doing.

The bad news is what I received today. Our board is putting the breaks on, for Season 4 until we raise at least 50% of the money to record the next dramas. As you know, we are scheduled to record The White Gypsy and Jessica’s Journey, the end of January or early February. We also would like to do The Lost Ruby. And then we would like to immediately begin the script writing for the powerhouse Titus: A Comrade of the Cross and then Ishmael or A Lost Pearle. We need your prayers and if God so leads for you to share this need with others. This will be the first time the board has put the breaks on like this but they see that though we are growing, we continue to get farther in debt to produce the dramas. The long term growth looks great but it takes 3 to 5 years to begin making a profit on the initial investments. But without forward motion, the radio stations will see that as a stall and we could lose some stations.

When I left that meeting, I was talking to the Lord and then I thought of you. I want each of you to know how much I appreciate you and all the prayer and support that you have given this year. I am so thankful to be a part of this great movement to awaken a sleeping culture to the beauty and redemption of Christ. Let’s pray and watch our great God once again, do the impossible!
