As I sit here to write a few words of how the Lord has blessed us here at Radio Missions; I see several things. First of all I see how
the Lord has not gone off and left us. He is graciously supplying the finances to keep the radio stations all paid up on a regular basis.
The printing press has been very busy all the year as we publish and mail out Pastor Shelton's messages by the hundreds of thousands to
almost every state in the union as well as foreign countries. The Voice of Truth magazine is sent out each quarter on a regular basis and
folks are writing in requesting the booklets and also the magazine. I receive literature from many other ministries advertising trips to
the Holy Land and cruises all over the world but we are only interested in getting out the Gospel so that by God's grace some poor lost
soul might hear or read some portion of God's word and be awakened to his lost condition and eternally saved.
As I look back over the year I also see how a few souls have been saved and now rejoicing in the Lord. I would love to be able to tell you
of the masses being saved but I know and believe that those days of great revivals are past and gone; now it's only one here and one there.
Pastor Shelton called it pole line fishing. I know that the religious world, much of it is blinded by Satan believes that many are being saved;
I doubt this because I don't see or hear of men and women speaking of Christ being a living reality to them. I see so much of worldliness
even in our own people; it frightens me to think that many will not be saved. I'm at a loss as to what to do, I know it's all in our Lord's
hands but we are commanded to preach the Gospel to every creature. I ask you who know the Lord to get under the load with me; pray for us
here, especially the brethren who go to the mission places and bring God's message.
Then I see many of our folks including your Pastor coming down to old age. I just made eighty-four and many of our people are there also.
I often wonder if my generation will be the last ones saved before our Lord returns and calls us home. Quite a sobering thought my
awakened sinner! Why won't you turn to the Lord and begin to know the joy of fellowship with our blessed Lord before it's too late?
I have much on my heart but I'll close for now. Come be with us when you can, I love to see you, call me and most of all pray that
I'll continue to be true to your souls.
