Opportunities Abounding

“…The Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song, He also is become my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2).

Jonathan's team had done an excellent job on landscaping!It had been almost ten years since I had seen the Nashville Training Center, a place of many happy reunions for families in ATI. 

In the midst of a collapsing world, we can respond in one of two ways:

Missionaries from New Guinea ... to Romania. Fight a host of temptations
Enter into Christ’s victory;

Say “Goliath is too big to fight!”
We praise the Lord to see Mr. Koning's life work continuing in testimony after testimony of victory over the powers of darkness. Say “Goliath is too big to miss!”;

See problems
See opportunities.

God is our strength. He is our song. He is our salvation. In Him we have the victory just because of who He is. I was tremendously grateful for the refreshing reminders given through the lineup at the Nashville Regional Conference, including Dad’s message on music, powerful sessions by Jamie Lash, true stories from Otto Koning, reports from international ministry, and the timeless tale of Andrew Summers Rowan, a noble West Virginian who took “A Message to Garcia”.

    Reminds us of what Abigail Adams said to her son John Quincy: Great adversity brings about great virtue. A genius would give [much] to be born at such a time as this. !!!

    Praise the Lord for such a rich host of encouraging messages! It was a blessing to be able to watch some of them streamed live over embassyinstitute.org!

    Yes, it was such a great week! My family and I were so grateful to be able to watch it live in our living room (with our favorite pillow and snacks). I hope they continue to live stream so we can continue to watch all of the wonderful sessions!
