“Getting people into the Word of God…
and the Word of God into people.”
What is a "GRAPHE GROUP" MEMBER?
We at Living In His Word Ministries are looking forward to an exciting 2009.
Our New Web
Presence has been outstanding.
More people are coming an viewing our site every day
Also we are creating new and exciting things on this site almost daily.
Continuing with our time honored tradition of sending out a daily
devotion, we will continue with this ministry this year as well.
Monday - Friday we will post another devotion each day.
Saturday and Sunday will both be posted on Saturday on the same page.
You can have the devotional sent to your e-mail
or to minimize loading time you can get a link sent to your e-mail so you can read it online
Also we have a new Reading Schedule for you that allow you to read through the entire Bible in a year by reading only a few chapters a day Monday - Saturday. We will continue to encourage you to re-read whatever scripture your pastor uses for his message on Sunday.
Another part of this ministry are Conferences and Retreats. We are doing several this year alone.
A Teen & Young Adult Conference in Wisconsin Dells
Marriage R & R Retreat to strengthen marriages.
A Fall Envision Your Life Retreat for Married Couples
Two separate Pre-marital
And many more in the planning stages...
The opportunity for us to build an office complex was not
financially possible this last year. One of the things the lower
housing prices has allowed us to do is to begin looking at several
homes within the Holland area that we might be able to purchase.We
can actually purchase and renovate a home in to Counseling offices
for a little over $30,000.00. We are looking at two story homes that
we can do three things with.
1. Build an apartment in the upper portion of the home.
(Our hope is to rent this out to pay for taxes and utilities)
2. To build
an Efficiency Apartment in the rear of the lower portion.
(We want to offer FREE this as a prophets chamber for visiting Missionaries and Evangelist)
(This will allow churches in the area to give more to them and not pay for lodging
3. To build Offices and
Counseling Rooms in the front of the lower half.
(A place to have seminars and Biblically based Counseling at No or Low cost)
We are going to offering Biblically Based Counseling by a trained staff of independently funded counselors.
4. To give someone a part time temporary job rebuilding this Structure.
But we need your help.
Prayerfully and Financially!
But back to the main
What is a "GRAPHE GROUP" MEMBER?
Graphe is the Greek work used in 1 Timothy 3:16-17 for Scripture.
It means “a document, that is a, Holy Writ (or its contents or a statement in it):—scripture.” Simply stated for our application it is a document that contains the original Word of God.
The verses say “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
As a member of the LIHW Graphe Group (The Scripture Group) you will be partnering with Living In His Word Ministry in helping those that have strayed from the correct path which God has laid out in His word.
Some are Christians that have gotten out of the will of God.
Many may never have heard the truth of God’s word and need to be given the light of this glorious gospel.
Whatever the case it is our belief and intention to point them to God’s wonderful Word and help them find the truth for their life.
How can you help as a GRAPHE GROUP MEMBER?
First, please tell as many people as you know about this free devotional service that will encourage them during their workweek. You can either forward them the link that is sent to you daily, or have them write to us requesting to be added at LIHW@LivingInHisWord.com, Give them the link to the devotional page at Daily Devotions or the link to the sign up page at Devotional E-mail List.
pray for God direction during 2009? Our Web Site
is changing. We hope to open an on line counseling page, an
actual Counseling Center in Holland by the end of 2009, as well as
Christian Life Coaching Service online and in person, all during
this next year. Dr. Senters and others working in this ministry
will also be picking up many speaking and singing engagements as
(If you are interested in having them come call 616-335-8796)
And we are considering adding a missions supported computer ministry as well. (More about that at a later date)
Please pray for the several retreats mentioned before for 2009. A Vision Retreat for Married Couples. Another Marriage Rejuvenation Retreat for couples. A Teen & Young Adult Retreat in Wisconsin Dells during the month of June. We also hope to once again be able to counsel many Couples with Pre-marital Counseling as couples and in Groups. Please approach the throne on our behalf as we attempt to get people into God’s Word and help them enjoy it and want to stay in it. That is the only thing that will ever really change people’s lives.
Yes that is an ambitious goal, but we believe this is where God is leading.
Finally, we are looking for a few people that feel God may be leading you to financially support this work. The cost of keeping the web site going as well as these new ventures are not cheap. God has graciously kept this going, but on a shoe string budget. As we look at constructing an office this next year and possibly adding on mission supported staff, it will take additional funds. If it is within your means to contribute we would greatly appreciate it. If not, please know that we in no way are planning to ever charge for our devotions or have anyone feel they must or need to contribute. We only want you to consider this if God leads you that way.
We would like to have a group of you that we will be calling our “Graphe Group”
