Update July 5, 2008
June 27 - "Oprah's New Age Religion" and "God, Give Us Godly Leaders"
To the Friends of Eric & Melanie and
Take A Stand! Ministries...
Thanks for taking a moment to read this note.
It has been a while since we have stressed the need for
your continued financial support. Thus, giving has dropped off
dramatically here in the Summer months.
I wish I could tell you that every need is met each
month by a
rich benefactor who just sends all the monies needed to support the work of
our ministry and our family. But this is simply not the case. We are
completely dependant on the large and small free will donations of those who believe in
the mission of this ministry.
As many of you know, we do not drive new cars, fly first
exotic vacations or lavish ourselves with expensive items. We
prayerfully take into account each expense that we undertake both for the
ministry and for our household. Likewise, we respect and appreciate
every gift, offering and order for materials that comes our way for they
represent your investment in the ministry with us.
We often stand amazed at how God has proven Himself
"just in time." He surely knows who He wants to use to see the needs of
His ministry met. He also knows that for Melanie and I there is no way to project what may or may not
come in during any particular period our lives. We have just trusted him
and truly lived
completely by faith and not by paychecks. In the end, we just want to be a good stewards
of God's call to
Apologetics and Evangelism ministry and be a witness concerning His
awesome provision to our ministry and family.
The Word states in Psalm 50:10 that God owns "the cattle on a
thousand hills." To the ancient Jew cattle represented wealth and resources.
This famous verse is expressing that
God can meet every need to those who believe. How does He do it? By
orchestrating relationships just as He has between you and our ministry.
He meets the needs of one through other obedient servants who are willing to faithfully trust Him.
Perhaps He has put you in charge of some of those
"cattle." Just as when our ministry sows finances to see other missions
succeed (such as the school and church in Haiti that we are helping to build), I
know that God is calling many who'll read this to cut loose a head or
two of His "prime beef" to see our ministry's work for the Kingdom of God
sustained. As Christians give obediently from our abundance, God has a way of
placing more into our hands that we might give again...and again. That
is His plan as outlined in His Word and He is intent on fulfilling it!
Thanks in advance for your offerings and orders during
this Summer season. We are counting on your partnership. We take joy
that by your support you share in every spiritual blessing and reward
along with us.
Watching and waiting for the King,
"We exist to see the lost saved
and the Church changed by the power of God!"

Touched for God
A few weeks back we purchased three CD's from your site, one of which
Testimony and it blessed us. However,
the CD on Pokemon really impacted our
family. For years our 12 year old daughter had been playing the video
even had cards for the last 2 years. While driving to the dentist we
to the CD, and my daughter began to squirm. Then she began to weep (she
again, by the way), and I mean weep. Our Lord immediately convicted her
came home and threw everything away! She wept so deeply because she
Peekachu was so cute and Chalzar (have no clue how to spell); but, she
black one was evil. We want to praise God for this ministry and for the
that He has used you twice to help our family. The last time was the Freemasonry
with a former church.
God bless you and your family. Maranatha!
PS...We live in a rural area, she really doesn't have many friends so she
games. Truly, I had absolutely no clue! Praise God for your ministry
now twice helped our family. (Previously we had a Freemasonry issue in a church
2 deacons were members...we left).
for Oprah Info
Thank you for the video clip on
Oprah and information on her New Age
beliefs. As the director of a pregnancy care center, we are having
ever increasing numbers of clients that are well steeped in new age
beliefs thanks to her and (Neal Donald) Walsh's "Conversations with God"
book, as well as the media and books in general. Christians better start
waking up and taking prayerful action! We are certainly in the end
times! Thanks again for keeping us all informed.
Oprah Video Clip
Great one Eric!!!! I'm preaching on Jude 3-4 this week
and will be showing the Oprah video to the church as my intro. Keep up
the good work. Gal 6:9

Warnings for the
"Be true to the parts of the gospel that just don't fit
today. Have the guts to speak on truth, in a day of relativism, on hell
and open inclusivism. When we're really true to the unfashionable parts
of the gospel, then the power of the gospel will be on us...We've got to
see that much of this stuff (being presented as 'relevant' by the modern
Church) is not only bankrupt but it's totally worldly. When we get
beyond that, the need will drive a huge number of people back to their
