LCG Weekly Update 12302016

Greetings from Charlotte,
Reports have been very positive regarding the Charlotte Family Weekend and the live transmission of Sabbath Services. It is difficult to have exact figures because we don’t know how many people are watching for every Internet connection, but we estimate about 5,000 were tuned in. In addition to giving the Sabbath sermon, Dr. Meredith started the evening dance with his great-granddaughter—a touching moment.

LCG Weekly Update 12092016

Greetings from Charlotte,
We have all encouraged Dr. Meredith to write an autobiography to fill in some of the history of the Church, since he played such a major part in the Work of God under Mr. Herbert Armstrong. This week he distributed the first of a planned three-part series, titled “The Early Years.” The importance of this project cannot be understated as he is the last man to fill in many details in the early years of Ambassador College and the Radio Church of God during its existence and afterward. We look forward to the completion of this project and sincerely pray that he will have the energy to complete it.

LCG Weekly Update 12022016

Greetings from Charlotte,
Mr. Stuart Wachowicz and the Canadian headquarters staff hosted a ministerial conference for about 40 ministers, wives, and other leaders from across Canada. Dr. Winnail and I participated in the conference and were encouraged by the dedication and warmth evident among those attending, and appreciate the leadership of Mr. Wachowicz, with the help of his very competent wife Marguerite. Regional Directors Mr. Lambert Greer and Mr. Rand Millich also contributed from their many years of experience in the field ministry, by means of a GOTO Meeting Internet connection. I’ve remained over a few days to record four Tomorrow’s World telecasts for the Canadian market and elsewhere, to give a sermon this Sabbath, and to take care of some unfinished personal business.

LCG Weekly Update 11252016

Greetings from Charlotte,
This week certainly illustrates the contrasting conditions of human beings around the world. As many Americans sit down to turkey dinners to celebrate Thanksgiving, desperate fighting rages around the starving inhabitants of Mosul in Iraq and hundreds are still digging out from the devastation left by recent earthquakes in Italy and New Zealand. This world needs the strong hand of Jesus Christ to return and set up the Kingdom of God on this earth. Here in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith’s semi-annual letter is currently being mailed out to some 400,000 Tomorrow’s World subscribers. Please pray that it will have a powerful impact on all who read it.

LCG Weekly Update 11112016

Greetings from Charlotte,
This has been a week as no other for the United States, with worldwide implications.  Those living elsewhere may not know what was at risk and are shocked that Americans elected Donald Trump to be the next President.  What was at stake was the appointment of Supreme Court Justices, a failed economy with a 20 trillion dollar debt, people opening their mail to find Obamacare bills doubling and tripling, the prospect of an open border policy that would cause America to cease to be a country, corruption on a frightening scale, the threat of a clamp-down on religious freedom, abortion in the 8th and 9th months, the promotion of lifestyles contrary to the Bible, and a media in bed with one party and the prospect of further loss of free speech.  While all this was looming over the country with a Clinton victory, Mr. Trump has his own problems.

LCG Weekly Update 11042016

Greetings from Charlotte,
We are getting back into our regular routines as our “travelers” return to the office from different parts of the country and the world. Reports from Feast sites are coming in very positive—strong sermons and warm fellowship among brethren who are very focused on doing God’s Work. One thing that was noticeable this year was the number of capable younger ministers with excellent serving attitudes who are filling major roles at the Feast. While we lost the Feast site in Hilton Head, South Carolina, due to a hurricane, another dangerous storm that was heading for our Feast site in Seaside, Oregon, broke up unexpectedly—baffling weather forecasters—for which we are very grateful.
