VISION OF THE CALL-Cont’

It became even more clear as we moved into 2012, that the Lord was beginning to bring up, and, place many troubling things before me personally. At the time, I had no idea that He was letting me in on a vision for our nation, and the need today was becoming so great and so necessary.


This had started out as a way of helping support foreign missionaries. However, after a little research, I was encouraged to dig deeper. And it wasn’t long at all, before the Lord brought my focus back to America. Back to a truth,. To a truth that this great missionary sending country, has, over the past 40 years, been transitioned from a missionary sending country, to a nation that is in desperate need of missionaries itself. This was further evidenced as I observed the closing of hundreds upon hundreds of small churches throughout rural America.


As I consider the neglect of the church in America, the cultural, as well as the spiritual war we are in, and today, is, ever, rapidly escalating, one question continually keeps popping up.“Are we, as ministers in America, as focused on introducing people to the Lord Jesus and discipleship, as we would be if we were serving as full time missionaries in a foreign land?


The Lord continues to ask, “Will you go for Me?” The call continues. “Will you go for Me?” 


We have felt the call so strong.  Now it’s time to pray and fast for the Lord’s direction for our life.  We seek your prayers as we seek the Lord. 


This will be our last general e-mail as our ministry at Ho Ho Kam will be ending on November 25.  If you would like for us to continue please let us know.  If you are truly praying people we covet your prayers as we seek the Lord’s face.

  3. Hi Pastor Bill,

    Hope you guys have a Happy Thanksgiving too! Tina and I have recently moved back to Chandler, Az where I took a contract job for Intel. I’ve also been working nights in my own consulting business right across the street from Intel after my day job is done. So, I went from no job to having two! Anyway, hope you guys are doing well.
