Sabbatical Over, Gearing Up for 2017

Refreshed, invigorated, ready to roll. These words sum up how I feel after taking a sabbatical over this last year. While still speaking in churches and serving in the community, a much needed break has allowed me to refocus on potential avenues of service.

One such opportunity has presented itself just recently. Berean Bible Baptist in Binalbagan, Philippines has invited me to come and speak at a youth event in April of 2017. This is a great opportunity for Ta Ethne. I have been friends with Pastor Janel Vergara Nemeno for 5 years now and he is doing a fantastic job in Binalbagan.

In keeping with the mission to provide teaching and discipleship resources at little or no cost to churches worldwide, we will be going free of charge to this event, God willing. Because of the sabbatical, I have started a Go Fund Me account to help offset the cost of the trip. Normal channels of funding will take time to re-establish due to the long period of relative inactivity from this site, but I believe that God will provide.

Should you desire to help fund this trip, there is a paypal button on our site or you can go to .gofundme.com/th-mission-trip-to-the-philippines and donate through there.

Keep us in your prayers and know that 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting chapter in the history of Ta Ethne.

 

A Look Ahead To 2013

The success God has given us in 2012 has increased our anticipation for what He will allow us to do in 2013. With His help, we have lots of projects planned for the coming year. Trips to China (to work with church leaders) and possibly India (to work with the Victory Baptist Association) are in the planning stages. New resources, such as a personal Bible study on the book of Jude, a study guide for an expanded version of Is Jesus Enough?, and the completion of Consequences are in the works. There has been an increased interest in our seminar, Islam and the Future, and that will continue to be offered. People in over 60 countries have logged on to follow us in the 6 months we have operated Ta Ethne. We hope to expand our global presence even further.
We continue to do all of this by trusting in God to meet our needs. No one who works for us takes a salary, everyone volunteers their time and money. We give away hundreds of books and other resources because of the generosity of donors. Those resources we sell fund mission trips to support national church leaders. We are looking to raise $5000 USD for the trips to China and India. Would you pray that God would supply our needs? If He leads you to do so, would you consider a donation through Paypal on our website, http://www.discernmentministries.webs.com or by purchasing our books or audio resources?
Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to share God’s glory across the world.
