Helping to Change the World—One Person at a Time ...

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).

 

 

June, 2017

The Impact of Electronic Communications!

In our day and age it is certainly a God-given wonderful privilege to be able to reach so many people worldwide with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ every day of the year using some of today's most powerful means of communi-cation—the Internet and e-Mail.

As a result, there is rarely a day when ACTS doesn't receive decision responses for Christ from somewhere in the world. The countries from which we have received decisions are listed at: http://www.actsweb.org/response_countries.php—from Accra to the United Arab Emirates, and Zimbabwe—and 163 other countries in between, including Iceland!

ACTS main website is http://www.actsweb.org. The accompanying follow-up website is http://www.actsweb.org/living which lists "Ten Steps" for Spiritual Growth. Every decision respondent receivses the link to this website and is encouraged to read every article, one of which is titled, "What a Good Church Can Do for You."

We also have gospel websites in Spanish, French and Finnish. These websites also have accompanying Follow-Up websites in the matching languages. A listing of these are at: http://www.actsweb.org/action.php.

According to reports from Google Statistics, on average every month visitors to ACTS websites come from 194 countries and territories. Think of the economy of this as we only have two staff in our US office—Joy, my wife, and myself. We keep very busy!

Besides the many visitors to ACTS websites, every weekday of the year 210,000+ worldwide subscribers receive ACTS daily devotional, Daily Encounter, which has become ACTS most effective gospel outreach tool. One one occasion—in one day—we received 41 decisions for Christ in response to the Daily Encounter titled: "How to Be Sure You Are Going to Heaven."

In addition to the English edition of Daily Encounter there are 11,300+ subscribers receiving the Spanish edition, Encuentros Diarios.

We also receive constant responses from subscribers thanking us for Daily Encounter sharing what a blessing this ministry is to them. Here's just one of many such responses:

"Thank you for the great lesson about forgiveness and taking ownership of our own actions. May God continue to bless your ministry." – Sincerely, R.B.

Tragically, according to the highly respected Barna Research Group today’s church in the USA is in decline.

In past years God has greatly blessed the Church in the USA, where we have more churches per 100,000 population than any other country in the world—and more churches per 100,000 population than in some entire countries. And yet, with all our education, multiple staffs, advanced technology, multi-million-dollar church premises, and our incredible resources, why are we making less and less impact on our society, and why are we in decline? I couldn't even get our former pastor to include a gospel message on the church website. While we are the richest church on earth, according to statistics I have read, the average church in the U.S. spends 95% of its income ministering to its members—ourselves!

True, churches are vital for worshipping God collectively, for fellowship and to strengthen every believer for service to God, and we do this by serving people and being a witness to take the gospel to the nations. Jesus’s commision to every church and every Christian was and still is: "You are to go into all the world and preach the Good News [the Gospel] to everyone, everywhere" (Mark 16:15 TLB).

As the late Oswald J. Smith, missionary statesman from Canada, said, "The supreme task of the church is the evangelization of the world." And as another has wisely said, "Our greatest legacy will be those who live eternally in heaven because of our efforts." And as Winston Churchill stated, "We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."

We praise God that via the web and e-Mail ACTS is reaching people to the far corners of the world with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is not only a phenomenal opportunity, but also an investment in eternity.

We are extremely thankful for every ACTS prayer and support partner. Everyone plays a vital role in helping make ACTS gospel outreach possible.

Again this month, we are totally dependent on both your prayer and financial support to keep us actively reaching people worldwide for Christ every day of the year.

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

Praise Reports:
We truly thank God for the wonderful means of communication He has given to His people of today; for the wonderful privilege of being able to reach so many people for Christ every day of the year; and for all of God’s provision through His people to make ACTS gospel ministry possible.

Prayer Requests:
Please continue to pray for God's protection and provision so ACTS can continue to reach as many people worldwide as possible with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Please pray, too, that God will provide a new leader to take over our U.S. office when it is time for me to step aside.

P.S. As another has said: "Our greatest legacy will be those who live eternally in heaven because of our efforts."
