November Update

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord
— Romans 8:37-39 (NIV)

 

By: Dr. Johnny Moffitt

This passage of scripture is one of my favorites.  Paul is telling us who we are when tough times come or hard things happen.  “We are more than conquerors.”  He could say that because he had experienced persecution, distress, calamity, suffering, hunger, affliction, and tribulation; and those experiences qualified him to speak out.  In all this he was victorious…an overcomer…more than a conqueror.

We are More Than Conquerers

Paul knew Christ lived in him, and Christ in him was the hope of glory.  We have that same Christ in us, which becomes our hope. We do not have to be afraid of what may come.  Perfect love casts out fear, and Christ in us is perfect love. Yes, even in the midst of all that is going on in our lives, we can have peace, just like Paul.

God’s perfect love removes any and all fear in the midst of our troubles.  Do not be afraid. Take your eyes off of your situation or what is to come, and look to Him who loves us.  Nothing in all creation will be able to separate you from His love. It is His perfect gift to you, and it never fails!

This month has been a special time of blessing for WVIW.  

I conducted a Manhood Seminar in the LaBlanc Prison in Beaumont, Texas.  Although this was my first time in this prison, I saw many men I had met in other Texas prisons.  When you have been going to these prisons as long as I have, you are bound to see men in different prisons.  They become not only people we minister to, but also friends.

We try to live lives victoriously before these men so that they might see that Christ in them can bring them that same hope.  They can be more than conquerors…victorious…and overcomers. That same God who lived in Paul, lives in us, and can live in them.

Pray for us as we host a Marriage Seminar in the Gibb Lewis Prison this month.  We are also getting ready to take a team back to Cuba in December, and a team to the prisons of Honduras in February.  We know in all this we are overcomers…victorious…and more than conquerors.


Thank you for all you do to help WVIW carry the love of God and the message of Jesus Christ to the least of these—the oppressed—and the special gospel workers in very tough circumstances.  It is because you care that we are able to go.  May God richly bless you.

2018 Cuba Trip Fundraiser

2018 Cuba Trip Fundraiser

We are very excited about our upcoming trip to Cuba in May. We are so glad to have an amazing team of teachers, pastors, and missionaries coming with us. We are especially happy to have such a wonderful group. of supporters and financial partners here who are sending us to share the good news. stay tuned for updates. 

Our time in Cuba was amazing

We are thinking about our great trip to Cuba.

God met the team in a tremendous way.  We were able to teach in three conferences and almost ten churches.  We ministered to several hundred people and I am especially thrilled to have ministered to over 500 prison ministry volunteers.

Here is part of an email I received from one of our hosts.

"Greetings from the green alligator.

I hope you had made it back safely.

I want to thank you once again for coming down and being obedient to the voice of the holy spirit. We had a wonderful time together!!!  I know this is just the beginning of the many things God is going to do through your ministry down here."

The entire team is excited about going back.  Watch this blog for more reports on the trip. 

Johnny and Betty Moffitt will be in Cuba

This week Betty and I will lead a team to Cuba. This will be my 3rd trip to Cuba. The focus will be on training and encouraging Pastors, Church Leaders, and Volunteers who all serve their fellow Cuban citizens year round. 

Please keep this group in your prayers as they travel November 11-22. 

Our team hope's to update from Cuba if cell service permits, and share with you the details of our travels. 

Thank you for your partnership and prayers. We would not have the ministry we do without you!
