The follow-up work takes place as Sammy and his teams return to the site of each ministry program and challenge the new believers with the Word of God. Thank you for taking time to remember GEM in your prayers and with your continued financial support. You are making a diﬀerence today! STRAIGHT FROM MY HEART … Dr. & Mrs. Roy D. Mason, Jr. The warmer weather has arrived in my part of the world and we are enjoying it very much. With the thoughts of summer vacations in many of our minds I am certain you are l o o k i n g f o r w a rd t o t h e opportunity to enjoy family and friends in a great environment. Our family is looking forward to our time on Hilton Head Island — a place that we love and enjoy so much. Summer certainly is a time for enjoying the blessings of God. The blessings of God are not confined to the season of the year. God’s goodness is always evident, we we only slow down long enough to notice it. The good hand of God is ever before us and He desires to lead you in all your steps. Our Father has nothing but good planned for us but too often we are so bent on getting things our way. The writer of the 4th Proverb uses the words … ABOVE ALL ELSE and I want to remind us of these things too. “Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it.” —Proverbs 4:21 NIV Above all else … • Thank God for His presence every day. • Ask Him to show you where He is working around you. • Express an attitude of Gratitude each day • Show actions of Graciousness to people you encounter daily • Find a way to be Generous with your time, your talents, and treasures today. I am certain if we do these things God will give us the opportunity to show others His love in ways we have never before experienced. Now, until Jesus returns, I remain Yours, in the fulfilling of the Great Commission, REMEMBER TO PRAY For increased Ministry Opportunities God continues to open doors of opportunity both here and abroad. Ask God to direct us specifically into those arenas where His Name has yet to be heard. Pray for me as I will be leading Bible studies with a group in San Antonio, TX (May 10-17) For the provisions for our team in Ghana. There continue to be increased needs for our nationals in country. Presently we are seeking to provide another three pastors with the Field Ministry Equipment (3 wheeler, projector, DVD player, generator, and sound system) which will cost $3,000 each. In addition to this we need to secure another ministry vehicle before the September project which will cost us $10,000. For the formulation of the next TEAM. Our next project to Ghana will be in September and we are in the process of asking God to put together the exact people that He wants to be a part of this project. Several have expressed interest in this and we must certainly make sure that we are in agreement with God. For the Gospel to powerfully penetrate the darkness. The only reason we travel into these places around the globe is to allow the light of Jesus Christ to shine through us in a desperately dark world. Pray for thousands who have never heard the message of Christ.
