A word from God’s Word:“It is God himself, in his mercy, who has given us this wonderful work [of telling his Good News to others], and so we never give up” (2 Corinthians 4:1, TLB).
A Powerful Reminder!
I am again reminded of the words of Jesus who said: "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come" (Matthew 24:14).

With all the incredible means of communication available today including: Radio, TV, the printed page, the Internet, e-Mail, web-mail (with the ever increasing hand-held communication devices), the gospel is speeding to the ends of the earth as never before in all of human history. In harmony with what Jesus said, it certainly appears that the setting of the stage for Christ's return is accelerating. Even so come Lord Jesus!
In the meantime it would make a profound impact on the entire world if every Christian would become involved in some way--be it through prayer, financial support, giving out gospel literature, or encouraging friends and contacts to visit excellent gospel websites such as www.actsweb.org, and recommending that they subscribe to ACTS Daily Encounter. This can be done at: http://www.actsweb.org/encounter/subscribe.php
All of ACTS services come without charge--and are designed to reach mega thousands of people worldwide with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ--the ONLY hope of our sin-sick and lost world.
As it has been said before, "All the darkness in the world cannot put out the light of just one small candle." True, one candle can't light a vast area, but hundreds of candles working together can send the light of the gospel to many thousands of people worldwide. So will you prayerfully consider joining with ACTS as a Share Prayer Partner with your monthly prayer and financial support to help to keep ACTS sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with many thousands of people worldwide every day of the year?
Your support will be greatly appreciated, not only by us, but by every person worldwide who receives Jesus Christ as their personal Savior because of your help. These people will be eternally grateful.
What is also very helpful is that much of today's world speaks English. If not their first language, for many English happens to be a second language. At the same time, ACTS has a Spanish gospel website and has Daily Encounter, ACTS week-day e-mail inspirational message, also available in Spanish. It is called Encuentros Diarios.
In our U.S. ACTS office (according to Google statistics) we receive on average every month visitors to ACTS gospel websites from 194 countries and territories! This is done very inexpensively in that our only staff in our U.S. office is Joy and myself. Furthermore, we use a spare bedroom in our home for ACTS office with books and literature stored in our garage. Both areas are free of charge for the ministry of ACTS.
What is most encouraging is that almost every day of the year we receive salvation decision for Christ responses from around the world. For the first two months of 2017 we received 94 commitment to Jesus Christ decision responses from eight different countries! We certainly praise God for this incredible opportunity in our day and age to reach people worldwide with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We also receive continual feedback from ACTS websites and ACTS daily devotional, Daily Encounter which has over a quarter-million worldwide subscribers--equaling four million plus Daily Encounters being e-mailed every month!
It is the faithful support of God's people that keeps ACTS sharing the message of Jesus Christ with our Daily Encounter subscribers every weekday of the year. Every issue has a link to the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Plus untold numbers more are seeing a very clear gospel message on ACTS websites which has visitors, every month, on average from 194 countries and territories. This information comes from Google statistics.
Unfortunately, however, of late financial support for the gospel ministry of ACTS has fallen considerably short of our regular critical expenses. So any extra support you can send this month is URGENTLY NEEDED, and will be a great help and greatly appreciated.
As you stand with us with your vital support, may God richly bless and reward you in His own abundant way.
Gratefully in Christ,
Dick and Joy Innes

Continued need for special prayer. As noted before, this past year we lost one half of our regular monthly supporters; thus there is a vital need to replace these donors so we can maintain our uncompromising gospel outreach.
Additional Outreach Opportunities: Ralph Porter, a military chaplain, forwards many issues of Daily Encounter to those to whom he ministers. In doing so he is reaching many service personnel with the gospel of Jesus Christ. So we encourage you to also forward copies of Daily Encounter to friends and contacts to help share the message of Jesus Christ with them.
