It is an honor to write to you today as the incoming General Director of the mission you have been partnering with to help reach this generation with the Gospel – the Gospel Furthering Fellowship. It is deeply sobering and humbling to have the privilege of following into this position, a man who has laid down his life for Christ’s sake and the Gospel’s. Bruce Busch is the man of whom I speak. He and his wife, Ruth, will continue to be valuable assets to the Kingdom of God and specifically at our mission as they assume new roles of service. I know that they would appreciate your prayers as they seek to continue serving the Lord with gladness each new day.
Our name declares both our ambition and aim: to fellowship with those with like mind and purpose to biblically further the Gospel to the world’s end in this dark hour. I believe it is dark because Satan’s objective is dark, sinister, and evil. But, to the church for whom Christ died, the darkness of the hour only deepens our devotion, strengthens our resolve, and emboldens us in our efforts to humbly walk with Him as He leads us to hellish places with the hope of the Gospel!
It is with this resolution I write you today and express my personal thanks for your devotion to the cause of Christ! With our missionaries serving throughout the world, I believe I can speak on behalf of them by saying that your interest and prayers for their safety and the Gospel’s advancement is vitally important!
May God bless you in this New Year as you, too, seek to serve the Lord with gladness!
Your servant in Christ Jesus,
