Asking God to enlarge our territories

has a different meaning then what we think.

When Jabez prayed to the God of Israel in 1Chronicles 4:10 he said, “and Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, (territories) and thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.”

 

I believe that the Lord’s desire for us as believers is that we allow him to flow through us. This week on our radio program, “A Place Missionaries Call Home,” we have as our guests Robbie and Tammy Dilmore. The Dilmores have three children and have recently become grandparents.  Robbie is our producer and is better known for his programs “the Christian Car Guy,” Robbie’s Hobbies” and “The Christian Swap Shop.” Recently, he appeared on “Fox and Friends” in New York City.  His wife, Tammy home schools their youngest daughter and along with being a wife, mom and teacher, Tammy  teaches special needs children with her husband at Calvary Baptist Churchin Winston Salem, North Carolina. The Dilmores will bless your hearts as they share how God has expanded their territories through unbelievable circumstances. This program will change your life. I know it has changed ours. You will look at the prayer of Jabez in a whole different way.

“He Restoreth My Soul

he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.” Ps. 23:3

Dear Friends of Siloam,

We praise the Lord for the opportunity every Saturday to share on the radio about the lives of missionaries. These families have lived, or are currently living at Siloam Missionary Homes. God has been so gracious to have given us this tool of radio. We have been so blessed that this program is being underwritten by Coble Trench Safety. This program on five different radio stations has a listening audience of 20,000 people! It has been a blessing to share the ministry about Siloam with so many people. We thank the Lord that over 25,000 people have gone to our web site for the month of February. Join us each Saturday on the radio at 3:30 p.m. – WTRU 830am. You can also access it through our website at www.siloamhomes.org.

This week, Larry & Joyce will be talking to Santiago and Jackie Olortegui, missionaries to Australia. They are living at Siloam, and last year were involved in two major car accidents within a 3 month period. Saturday, they will share some of their journey to recovery and how God has given them strength. It has been a daily walk of faith. Since they are not American citizens, they have had to struggle to get the insurance companies to pay for their required surgeries. For several months, they were unable to drive back and forth for rehab. Santiago still has two more surgeries to go. Their goal is still to return to Australia to carry on their ministry, but for now, God seems to have different plans for their lives.

You won’t want to miss this program as you listen to the Olortegui’s share how God is working.

Please pray for them and for the other missionary families living at Siloam. Remember, Jesus has commanded us to “go or to send.” Anything less than that is to disobey.

God bless you, Larry George, President

When Thou Passest through the Waters, I Will Be With Thee

and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Is. 43:2

Join Larry & Joyce this Saturday on the radio at 3:30 p.m. Station WTRU am830, or click the station on the right side our our web site, “A Place Missionaries Call Home” as they talk with Brian and Kristen, who are taking their next step toward their journey to be missionaries to Africa.

Many people have asked us through the years about the steps you take to become a missionary. We all have had missionaries come to our churches and share their passion and vision for ministry. But, we forget the beginning. When at the altar, we say, “Lord send me, wherever you want us to go, we will go.” Then the journey begins. Going back to school, selling the house, giving away our things and packing our bags. It is time to say goodbye. And our lives change forever. That final day comes, and you are on the last leg of your journey before you leave for the field. You move to a place like Siloam Missionary Homes, a place of transition.

This week, we will be talking to Brian and Kristen , a couple who like so many others, have said, “Here am I, send me.” They are currently living at Siloam Missionary Homes and preparing to leave for the mission field. Saturday at 3:30, they will be sharing their hearts and God’s clear call for their lives.

You won’t want to miss this program. It will encourage you to pray for Brian and Kristen and other missionaries that have answered God’s call. Your life will never be the same again. Jesus commands all of us to be part of the Great Commission. We are to go or to send. Anything less that is is to disobey.

Join us Saturday at 3:30 – A Place Missionaries Call Home.

On Some Having Compassion, Making A Difference, Jude 22

This week on our radio show, A Place Missionaries Call Home, Joyce and I will be talking with co-author, Karen Mulder, about her book, The Compassionate Congregation, a handbook for people who care. In one of the chapters, we explore with her how to recognize and help someone who we care about through “burnout.” Joyce will also share about a missionary mom who struggled with burnout and how God used her as a compassionate listener, taking this lady to the Lord in prayer.

Mrs. Mulder shares the three principles of care giving, like the verse found in Jude 22, “and some having compassion, making a difference.” Karen has a wonderful gift of making you feel special and brings compassion to everyone she meets. She is a prayer warrior and loves people.

You won’t want to miss this program, Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on WTRU Radio. To find the program, open up the home page of our web site at www.siloamhomes.org and click onto the radio station 830AM. It will open up the radio station. Click on “listen online” in the upper right corner of the page, wait for about 30 seconds, and the program will begin.

This program will be an encouragement to you. In these days of being over extended and highly stressed, God can  use you to minister to people we care about so much, especially pastors and missionaries.

The purchase the handbook, Compassionate Congregation, go to amazon.com. Karen Mulder is also available for workshops and seminars. E-mail her at karenmulder@redlumoffice.com or through our office at siloamh@bellsouth.net

God bless you today!

Living In the Grip of Fear

Recently, while watching the evening news, I realized how our government, through the liberal news media, can manipulate people into fear. They want you to believe that the only way we can survive is through them. If they can make the situation so discouraging and dismal, they win. Some people today have one agenda. They want complete control of our lives and tell us that we need someone other than God to think and to direct our lives for us.

Since the Garden of Eden, the Bible tells us that Satan also wanted us to believe that lie. While talking to Eve, he said, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes will be opened and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Does that sound familiar – that we are wiser and smarter than God, that we don’t need Him? The unsaved world is telling us the same thing – that government and man is what we need to rely on – not Jesus Christ.

In Matthew 10, Jesus is telling the disciples that serving Him would not be easy, but there was nothing they would go through that he would not go through. His words of encouragement to me this morning is “Fear them not therefore; for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid that shall not be known. What I say to you in darkness, that speak ye in the light; and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.” Matt 10:26-27

This Saturday at 3:30 on “A Place Missionaries Call Home,” we will talk to a missionary who lived in a country that was not open to Christianity. Though they were being watched and their house was bugged, they had the peace of God knowing they were speaking darkness, through the power of the Holy Spirit, His Word became Light!

I would like to encourage you today, dear friend. What is happening today in this country and around the world is not new to Jesus Christ. We can have the assurance in our hearts and through the Bible that God is in control. Matthew 10 tells us that we are more important than the birds – and he takes care of them. He has proven this to me over and over.

May God encourage you today to share the gospel with your neighbors and co-workers. I tell people every day, “Jesus is coming!” Every day, we are one day closer to eternity. We need to believe and understand that God controls the time and the hearts of all men. Our responsibility is proclaiming the Truth.

God bless you, Larry George, President

A Place Missionaries Call Home

            We are hitting the ground running in 2009! It  looks like it is going to be a busy year. I think the older I get, the quicker time goes. Why is it that when we walk into the house in the evening, the recliner seems to be calling me?

 

I thank you for your prayers and your sacrificial giving in tough economic times. The Lord  provides our needs daily and the needs of  the missionary families. For this we give Him the praise.

 

         I have been challenged lately in my Bible reading and by Bruce Wilkerson’s book on the Prayer of Jabez. It is hard to always be patient and be still – two words that is really hard for me. However, at 52 I’m still learning and yes, still leaning on Him. We are saying good bye to the Millsteads this month. They are moving to Texas where they are transitioning. They will be greatly missed. We do welcome the Fasse family to Siloam. This month, being the beginning of a new year has many of our  families traveling and setting up new meetings. We would ask you to pray for their safety in travel and God’s provision in ministry.

Our book keeping department is busy sending out last years receipts. Pray for us as we plan this years budgets and programs.

 

When you get a chance, look us up on the web at www.siloamhomes.org You are able to see our calendar and what is going on around Siloam Missionary Homes. We have been given the  wonderful opportunity to share the ministry of Siloam Missionary Homes on Truth Talk radio. Last month, we were on  5 radio stations every Saturday at 3:30 EST.  The program is called “A Place Missionaries Call Home” This has allowed us to share weekly with thousands of people that have never heard about Siloam. During the program we are sharing everyday life experiences about missionaries and people in ministry. Please pray for Joyce and I as we host this program that it can be used to being honor and glory to Jesus Christ.

 

God bless each of you,

Larry George, President

Merry Christmas!

Last night at my church, we sang “Emmanuel.” What a blessing it was to me! I was looking at the words of that great hymn, “Emmanuel, Emmanuel, His name is called, Emmanuel. God with us, revealed in us, His name is called Emmanuel.” Taken from Matthew 1:23, I have sung this song since I was  a little boy sitting next to my parents, but never really thought about the words “God in us, revealed in us.” I praise the Lord for living in us and for the Holy Spirit who reveals God in us.

We praise the Lord for meeting out needs daily, and yes, some of our wants. We have been so blessed with all of the food for Dad’s Country Store and for donated clothing and gifts for the missionary kids. What an encouragement from God.

I have been praying for the past year that God would raise up people to help us pay off the mortgage and increase the budget. I believe we are living in the window of opportunity. Our nation is in a financial mess and every day the government is controlling more and more of our lives. We are to separate ourselves, to be set apart for Christ Jesus, and not compromising our faith.

Please pray for Siloam Missionary Homes’ staff as we pursue this goal, and that God will touch the hearts of people who can help make this happen.

Another prayer request is that God will give directions regarding an opportunity that has opened up for us to be on the radio. Last week, we were on Truth Broadcasting (am 830) for an hour with “talk live” which has the potential to reach 50,000 people. Our website was visited by over 3,000 people as a result of this broadcast. We reached more people in one hour than we visit over several years of sharing in churches. The program was aired again last Saturday night. We have been offered by the radio station to do a program each week. We believe this is the Lord’s doing and pray that God will raise up supporters for this.

In closing, all of us here at Siloam Missionary Homes wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year as we serve the Lord Jesus Christ through missionary housing.

Because of Christ,

Larry George, President

Praise Ye The Lord

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

Psalms 150:6

Dear Prayer Partners,

 

            Are you praising the Lord today? I was reading the newspaper last night and read about the space journey to Mars. “Had there ever been life on Mars?” Man constantly searches for life’s beginning, when all they have to do is read God’s Word. Too easy?

 

            I wanted to tell you thank you for praying for us. God is so good and continues to bless us every day. I have to stay focused on God’s Word and not what the world is doing. Thank you for your financial support . I know the cost of everything is going up and we thank the Lord for your sacrificial support. The houses are filled and being filled with new missionary families that need a home. It’s because of you and the blessing of the Lord that Siloam Missionary Homes continues. House number 13 is being decorated today!

 

            Praise the Lord for answered prayer. I have asked you to pray for Darlene Evans, a mom with colon cancer, remember? Well, I talked with her and she has started her treatments and God has blessed. She has not been sick, although tired, and she is still singing in the choir. Praise the Lord! Tuesday, she had a pet scan to see if the cancer is outside the colon. The Doctor said it is all in one location and is treatable. Keep praying for Darlene and send her a card at PO Box 177, Alamance, NC 27201.

 

Praise the Lord for a car:

Abbey, Mike, Joyce, and I have been praying for several weeks for a car that would get better gas mileage for them. I thought about doing it my way and selling my truck. However, God had different plans. We received an e-mail from a person that had the car we were praying for! Praise God, Mike and Abbey are now driving it!

 

A note from our missionary families:

Matt K.wrote: “I very much appreciate all you  have done and are doing for my family. I just finished some toast with some homemade pear butter on it from Dad’s Country Store. It was real good!” Matt is one of our MK’s who is away in college. His family is living at Siloam.

 

Carmen P. and her family just recently moved to Hungary and she wrote, “Things seem to get easier each day…today’s trip to the grocery store wasn’t nearly as scary as last week, and I actually came home with most of the items on my list. The hard part is the language…on the back of all of the products they have 4 languages. They are Slovak, Polish, Hungarian, and Czech…all too confusing to even guess what they say. Needles to say, the food hasn’t been great in our house lately. Two nights ago, I was up late with Justin and Carina unpacking, so we took a break and went to the kitchen to have a tasteless snack of something I found at the store. As we sat there, we talked about Dad’s Country Store and how if we were at Siloam, we would walk down there and get a yummy cake. Justin and Carina both said, “well, it’s okay, because we will be back there in 4 years! We sure loved our time there!”

         In closing, I want to encourage you to keep praying for Darlene Evans. Allso, Mary Lou DeYoung is going to have a knee replacement in July. Keep praying for us that we can continue to encourage the families here.

Praising the Lord,

Larry George
