Psalm 5:2 says, "Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray."  We tend to forget that God actually answers prayer, or we tend to live with a faint hope that He just might answer it rather than a firm assurance that He will.  David the king went to the greater King and pled his cause.  David had all that power and right and yet that could not help him for only materialists think that this we see is all that is in the world.  To continue reading the update from Gary [...]

Malachi 3:6 says, "For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed."  Malachi 3:6 is one of my favorite verses because I love the immutability of God.  His promises to me are immutable; they never change; they  never mutate.  He never improves because He is the Highest.  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click on the link below.

In the book of Luke, Christ was admonishing His disciples about the last days.  Men's hearts would fail in fear; the earth would have distress of nations.  There would be perplexity on every side.  Sound familiar?  But, we cannot let our focus get too horizontal.  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click the link below.

During the Christmas season we often think of the book of Isaiah and the many prophecies that are in this great book.  Jehovah God chose the nation of Israel to be His people through which the Promised Messiah would come.  Isaiah chapters 38-55 are considered the servant songs, and the servant of the Father Himself would be Jesus who was sent by the Father to save His people from their sins.  Thankfully, it is far more than just Jacob and the nation of Israel that would be saved from their sins; it allows the Gentiles as well to receive His salvation.  [...]

Because of these times, people are concerned with the balance between health and freedom; this has caused a new term to be formed, virtue signaling.  We know that we all stand as sinners, void of any virtue; we have come short of the glory of God.  There is only One alone who is virtuous and worthy, and One alone who can unite the former enemies because of ethnic animosity as His bride.  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click on the link below.

In these days, everyone is being overwhelmed with the constant news that is very disturbing.  There is no peace, much less perfect peace with the radical response to the covid virus, rioting, protesting, and looting.  These have caused us to change our perspective from the vertical focus on God to the horizontal focus on the storm around us.   To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click on the link below.

It is incredible the situation that we have found ourselves in.  All of us!  I am amazed at the magnitude of it; it is world-wide!  Here in Puerto Rico we have been on a country-wide lockdown for four weeks now.  Each week or two the governor tightens the restrictions more, so that even today I could not enter a pharmacy without a mask on and no children can be outside their homes or the police will be called.   To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click the link below.

We all wish to be associated with people who are like us, who affirm us, and who accept us.  One day we will go to be with Jesus.  He has and will for all eternity condescend to us, to be with us, to associate with us, and to affirm us as we join Him in praising God for all eternity.  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click the link below.

Psalm 119:11, "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee."  The meaning of this verse has been working on me.  This verse is commanding us to allow the entire Bible and teaching of the Bible to capture our entire lives and it is not just a call to memorization.

Philippians 4:20, "Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever.  Amen."  Our hearts are full of gratitude as we sit and count our blessings of these past months.  This summer has truly flown by.  We had many things on our project list as we have been stateside .......  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click the link below.

Paul's desire was to go to new lands that had not been evangelized.  His view of evangelism was to establish a solid, indigenous church rather than mass evangelism.  He would return after his first imprionment back to those very churches that he had established because they were struggling.  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click the link below.

Puerto Rico has rebuilt herself in many places after Hurrican Maria.  We purchased signs for the church, and a Yamaha Clavinova for our music.  We are so thankfuld for those churches that gave extra money to do this!  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley click the link below.
