It’s true! Without the support of Harvest Partners like you, this ministry would not be able to reach people to the extent that it does with the hope of the gospel—people like Kayleigh, who sent me this e-mail:
I always believed but never had faith or understanding, and I never knew what it really meant to have Jesus as the center of your life. About six weeks ago, I decided to start reading the Bible to try to understand and feel a connection to God, and not long after, I started a seminar at my local church called Discovering Christ. It began to give me insight on having a personal relationship with God, and I really started to feel a change somewhere deep inside me.
Then I started listening to your podcasts on my iPhone . . . and everything you said brought me closer to becoming a follower of Jesus Christ.
Last week, my uncle died suddenly in a tragic car accident. It completely swept my entire family off their feet. If I hadn’t listened to your “The Hope of Heaven” talk the week before, I would never have been able to make it through. Nor would I have been able to support all of my other family members using your words. You gave me comfort in knowing that he was in heaven (he had been ultimately faithful, evangelistic, and devoted to God), and that we would all see him again and be reunited. You also gave me comfort in knowing that the reason for such a tragedy happening to such an amazing man will be revealed and understood when we get to heaven. I was able to bring those comforts to my family as well, because of you.
So I just wanted to thank you for your words and the faith you’ve helped instill in me and my family.
God bless you,
I can’t thank you enough for your partnership with Harvest Ministries. Stories like Kayleigh’s are “fruit that abounds to your account,” as Paul said in Philippians 4:7. I hope this testimony brightens your day, as it did mine.
