A Letter from June
Each month, friends of the ministry receive a letter from June that includes encouragement and ministry updates, as well as ways that people can partner, pray and rejoice with us through all of the wonderful things that God is doing through our ministry. Feel free to browse through recent letters from past months listed below.
- November 2013, “Giving Thanks… isn’t always easy.” (11/25/2013) - What happens when those grown children can’t or don’t want to come home for the holidays? How well I remember the year when my own precious mother faced the potential of an empty Thanksgiving nest . . . and the life-changing lesson I learned from her.
- October 2013, “Ending Domestic Violence … in the Christian Church” (10/4/2013) - . In many countries around the world, husbands and wives are taught—in church—that the wife’s acquiescence to physical, verbal, and emotional abuse is “God’s plan,” and they use Ephesians 5:22 to support their wicked thinking: “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands . . . .”
- Septmeber 2013, “Do I make a difference in anyone’s life?” (9/17/2013) - “Does anyone care?” “Do I matter at all?” “Do I make a difference in anyone’s life?” These were the halting words of Haley—a late-night caller on our Hope line—shared with me by the Hope Care Representative who answered Haley’s call. It was an unforgettable voice of despair—the voice of someone who had lost all expectation of a better tomorrow. Then the voice became quiet … wondering if anyone really heard her, let alone understood her.
- August 2013, A Letter from June on ‘Codependency’ (8/19/2013) - Today, it’s not uncommon to hear about people who are addicted—to food, drugs, and alcohol . . . sex, shopping, and gambling. But are you aware that people can become addicted to . . . relationships?
- July 2013, A Letter from June on ‘Trials’ (7/12/2013) - Throughout my life, the most profound “word picture” in the Bible has always been the Refiner’s Fire. As a young adult, the image of the Lord being my Refiner helped me endure some of my most difficult trials. Therefore, I’ve chosen to share with you the topic of Trials . . . through the eyes of our Refiner.
