Dear Friend,

Whatever grief and pain you may be dealing with right now, let me encourage you with a simple truth from the Scriptures…

Jesus loves you and understands all you’re going through – and He’s with you every step of the way.

You may be grieving a child who’s gone his own way. You might be fighting a painful illness. Or you may be wrestling with the loss of a loved one.

Even in your darkest moments, God’s Word can fill your heart with hope.

That’s what happened for Charles Spurgeon, the great English preacher who was so passionate about sharing the Gospel – and drew thousands to Christ.

With his hearty laugh and sense of humor, Spurgeon appeared joyful and content. But his fruitful ministry was attacked by narrow-minded critics. And inwardly, he battled fear, painful gout, and depression for many years.

How did Spurgeon overcome his struggles and impact so many with the Gospel? He knew God was always with him. In his final sermon, he praised God, saying:

“I have had nothing but love from Him. … His service is life, peace, joy.”

It’s my prayer that you’ll find that same “life, peace, joy” as you help bring God’s Word to people all over the world through PowerPoint.

And to thank you for your donation this month, I’ll send you my Breaking Free from Addiction and Breaking Free from Grief booklets, so you can find strength to overcome your struggles.

Thank you again for helping proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.

’Til the whole world hears,
