“For the LORD is righteous; He loves justice. The upright will see His face.” Psalm 11:7

Sunday, 7th: “Thank you for the Bible studies, they are amazing. I come to you for help. I have prayed many times but can’t seem to forgive the doctor who said he was going to do the surgery my father needed to live. But then he let him lay there for 9 days bleeding out and suffering till he passed away. I try to forgive but seems so hard because he knew what was wrong. I really want to forgive but don’t know how when it comes to this. I miss my dad dearly and still cry daily for his absence. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I feel I have no one to talk to, so all this bottles up inside me. Stephanie S…” Praise God – “But to those of you who will listen, I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,” (Luke 6:27)! Pray Stephanie finds a wise godly counselor; pray she keeps studying and growing in Christ.

Saturday, 13th: “07/25/22 I am enjoying how to live my life for Jesus. It’s such a night and day difference from my old way of being taught by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. For one, a Bible study like this would be taboo as their studies come from the ‘Watchtower’ publication. I have read the book of John and I am reading the other gospels now. I pray daily to Jesus and know He is guiding me. I thank you and your organization for providing these lessons for someone like me. Lyman C…” (A 59-year-old who is a 3-month-old in Christ.)
