On Daily Faith, we welcome back Pastor Craig Walker to the program. He is the Founding Lead Pastor of Upward Church, a multi-campus, multi-state church in Pensacola, FL. Have you ever been through a trial or circumstance that you thought would never end? Or have you ever felt that God forgot about you, which makes you want to throw in the towel? God sent us to help show you that He will be faithful in this circumstance, and He will show up for you right on time. God wants you to know that He sees you, and your name is written on the palm of His hand. That means that your name is ever before the Lord, and you are always on His mind. Some people give up right at the last minute, right before the answer comes. If you do not fold, God will come through for you. We can hold on to hope, knowing that we serve an on-time God! That is the word of the Lord God has placed on Pastor Craig’s heart to encourage your spirit. He has released a book entitled, Last Minute God. God is never late but always on time. It’s time to speak to your soul and encourage yourself in the Lord, allowing your mind to be renewed by the word of God! Don’t give up or give in. The God of breakthrough is on your side. “Let’s not become discouraged in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not become weary.” Galatians 6:9 NASB.

Tired feet and weary souls, children are growing up in some of the worst living conditions in some regions of Eastern Europe. Moldova has one of the highest deaths due to alcoholism, forcing these children to live in an orphanage. The orphanages tell them that no one loves them, which leaves them desperate and hopeless for someone to love them. The Orphans Hands is the heart of our outreach work. We have a village of homes in Moldova called Varta Village and a house in Ukraine. When these young kids turn age, they are forced out of the orphanage, leaving them subject to the risks of human trafficking. We bring them into our homes and help provide a safe and warm home filled with the love of Jesus, which enables them to discover their identity in the Kingdom of heaven. The love of Jesus has restored their hope for the future at the last minute. No longer orphans; they are sons and daughters of God, ministering to those they once were. They want to show you a video they filmed on how your generous love and support has helped encourage their faith to pursue the Lord. Thank you!

Joining us today on Daily Faith is Pastor Scott Stewart of Agape Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. Pastor Scott holds BA and MA in Middle Eastern History and a Ph.D. in Hebraic Studies, specializing in Biblical Hebrew. Before he and his wife became the Senior Pastors of Agape Church in 2013, they were missionaries for 26 years around the globe and planted 11 churches. Pastor Scott has seen what the future looks like to live in a godless society from his travels worldwide. God has given Pastor Scott an astounding revelation on the preparation of the church and how it correlates to a great wedding to come. He is here to tell us what that wedding process looks like as Jesus is the Bridegroom, and we, the church, are the Bride. As a bride gets ready for the day of her wedding, so will it be when the Bridegroom comes for the church. The church has been silenced for too long in America; it’s time for the church to remove the mask and proclaim the truth of the Gospel. No matter what the circumstances may be, God has declared that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the church. God is searching to pour out His Spirit on those who are willing to host His presence. Are you ready? Our prayer for you today is that you will make your lives ready by kindling the fire in your heart for the Bridegroom to come.

The Orphans Hands is the heart of our outreach ministry in Eastern Europe. We have a village of homes in Moldova, called Vatra Village, and a home in Ukraine that houses up to fifty kids. In these poverty-stricken countries, the children are often kicked out of their homes by their loved ones, sent to grow up in an orphanage until they turn sixteen. The orphanages tell them they are nothing and no one loves them; that’s why they are there. Desperate and hopeless, once they are kicked out of the orphanage, they are subject to the false hopes and dangers of the traffickers. The Orphans Hands is the intersection point for these young kids. Upon coming to Vatra, we tell them that God has a plan and purpose for their lives. We show them the love of Jesus and teach them how there will be a great wedding, and Jesus is the Bridegroom coming for His Bride, the church. By experiencing the transforming love of Jesus, once orphaned, now missionaries for the Gospel, sharing the same love and grace they received.

On Daily Faith, our guest is Teresa Pritchard. Mrs. Teresa is a mother, grandmother, and co-pastors of Fayetteville Community Church in Fayetteville, NC. Today, Mrs. Teresa is here to encourage your faith and speak life to your inner man. She has recently written a book with the help of her two eldest granddaughters entitled, Against the Current. This book explains the challenges and difficulties of the river of life, called the world system. This world system is rapidly changing, making it hard to keep up, leaving us confused and emotionally unstable. Many people are struggling with their identity, mental illness, fear, anxiety, and depression. When we go with the flow of the world system, things and events in life seem to appear easy and acceptable. Yet, as Christians, we are not called to go with the flow of the world. We are called and designed by God to be set apart for His purpose. We are to be in the world, not of the world. When we give God our yes, we begin to go against the currents of life and swim upstream. This task is not easy; however, God has provided lifeguards and anchors that keep us safe and hold us tightly to the promises of God. God will be there with you in whatever storms you may be facing. So hold tight to God’s unfailing hand today, and be encouraged to fear not; Jesus knows your name! For more information about Teresa Pritchard’s book, Against the Current, please see www.teresapritchard.net.
The Orphans Hands ministry is the heart of our outreach ministry in Eastern Europe. We have a village of homes called Varta Village in Moldova and a house in Ukraine. Together we house over fifty kids who this world has rejected. Moldova is one of the poorest countries in eastern Europe. Often these kids are forced out of their homes and sent to grow up in an orphanage. They grow up with feelings of loss, sadness with no hope in sight. When they turn sixteen, they are kicked out onto the street, leaving these kids subject to the false hopes of human traffickers. They have been battered by the storms, tossed around by the currents of life; however, upon coming into our homes, they are now discovering their true identity by the love of Jesus Christ! The Orphans Hands ministry has been rescuing these unwanted children of the world and is providing a safe place to call home and a family who loves them. Their faith is strengthened daily by the word of God, who is the anchor for their soul. They would like to thank you for your generous support and thoughtful prayers from their hearts to yours!

Today, on Daily Faith, our guest is Mark Yoder of Christ Community Church in Sumter, South Carolina. He wants to talk to you about knowing the heart of our heavenly Father through the stories of the Bible. Most people know there is a God but haven’t discovered the benefits of a relationship through Jesus Christ, His Son. The word of God is alive and inspired by the Holy Spirit, full of life, stories, and parables that help us gain more insight and understanding of God’s true nature. Pastor Mark has written a book called Garden to Garden: The Story of God and Us. In this book, you’ll learn how God has established a relationship between man and Himself since the beginning. This story takes you chronologically through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, helping you grasp your true identity as a son and daughter of Christ. Pastor Mark wrote this book to help others grow and learn in their knowledge of Jesus and find enrichment in an established relationship with God. When our eyes are opened to know His love, you’ll discover how the power of a story can change your life! What story has God written for you to learn today?

The Orphans Hands ministry has helped to rescue unwanted and abandoned children for the past thirty years. One of the poorest countries in Eastern Europe is Moldova. We have a village of homes called Vatra Village and a house in Ukraine. We help save young boys and girls from the risks of human trafficking. Due to poverty and lack of social support from their community, these children are often kicked out of their homes, forcing them to live in an orphanage. They are told that they are nothing in the orphanages and will never amount to anything in life. With feelings of loss, despair, and hopelessness, they are again kicked out at the age of sixteen and on the street with a bus ticket back to where they came. It’s in that hopelessness when we reach out and share the love of Jesus with them. We have told them, if they were born, God has a plan. Our kids are growing in their relationship with God through their love for Jesus. The stories of the Bible have impacted their hearts, helping to establish their true identity in Christ. From orphans to sons and daughters of Christ, they are now missionaries, returning the same love they have received to those in need. Thank you for your support!
