Dear Field Missionaries and WHQ Team,
"Out with the old, in with the new" is often heard when saying goodbye to the old year and welcoming in the new. January is a wonderful time to seek the Lord for His heart and plans for us in the coming year through prayer and fasting.
Dr. Jerry Williamson called Go To Nations staff and missionaries to 21 days of prayer and fasting as the Lord leads beginning on January 5 through January 25th. We trust that this has already been a tremendous time of renewed vision, breakthrough, and intimacy with the Lord for each of you.
Dr. Williamson shared last week that at the close of each year he asks the Lord, "Did I use this year effectively for You?" (Not perfectly, but effectively). Such a powerful and important question! We encourage each one to ask this same question for yourselves. Then, let's take it a step further during this season and ask the Lord how He wants us to effectively use 2016 for Him and His glory.
Surely, one of the means for all of us to be effective is to stay fresh in our intimate relationship with the Lord and others. With this in mind, Member Care is sending a free copy of Dr. Kathleen Tolleson's timely new book Staying Fresh in your mail packets this month.
Dr. Tolleson has ministered to many of us at GTN and carries a powerful anointing to bring revelation and transformation. You will be blessed and transformed as you read and apply the life-changing truths in Staying Fresh.
Lastly, as a reminder, please avail yourselves of the resources that are yours right here at headquarters and on our website. Any prayer requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Membercare@gotonations.org comes directly to me, and I am delighted to hear from you! Please be sure to email@example.com to your newsletter address list as we truly desire to stay updated on all your news and pray accordingly.
We love you!
Member Care Minister
