YOU are making a difference!

My Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. You are making a difference and lives are being changed! Jeff and I have been busy on the road ministering here in Florida for the past few months and what a joy it has been for us to be a part of what God is doing in the hearts of others.

Take Isaac for example, a student who recently sent me this email after we visited his youth group...

"Bernadette, Thank you very much for coming yesterday. I was greatly impacted by your message and testimony. I've been struggling for quite a while with stress, depression, and lately I have been feeling hopeless. A lot of problems have been arising in my life recently: School, family issues, financial issues, relationships, and my faith. After a certain point, I became numb and almost didn't really care what happened with me or what God did with me. But after hearing you speak, it gave me hope again. I thank you for opening my eyes and for making me realize that God is so much greater than our present troubles. I hope God continues to bless you and Jeff in this wonderful ministry you guys have established. Hope to see you again some time, if not on this earth then in our Father's kingdom. Isaac"

A few Sundays ago, Gina came to me in tears after hearing my testimony. She had invited her Jewish friend, Pamela, to church that day but due to unforeseen circumstances, ended up not being able to pick her up. Gina felt deep in her heart that my testimony would have made an impact in Pamela’s life and was just heartsick that she wasn't there to hear it. We prayed together and Gina left with my DVD in her hands, hoping that God would use it. Six days later, I received this email…

"Hello Jeff and Bernadette, It was a pleasure and blessing to meet both of you. Your testimony was a real blessing also to my friend, Pamela. We watched your video together and she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior on March 19, 2011. She is now relying on the promise of Jesus Christ. Please continue to keep her and my family in your prayers as I will keep you both in mine. God bless you and I pray the Lord continue to use you both mightily. Your sister in Christ. Gina"

Praise our Lord Jesus for such glorious reports! Words cannot adequately describe how encouraged I am by how God is working in the hearts of these and many others we’ve met. But there’s more to be done so keep on praying.

Special THANKS to those who gave to the special project of redoing our website! As you can see, it is now up and running! How do you like it?

Again, thank you for your investment in this ministry! We love you guys and are so glad that we're partners in impacting lives for Christ.

In His Strength,
Bernadette Todd
