January 2016 Newsletter
Greetings in Jesus name! I trust you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2015 was a very interesting year. We were very busy ministering to the needs of those in the body of Christ. I believe more than ever that we as Christians need to be solid in our faith and commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God. There is just too much happening in the world, and personally, in all of our lives, to take our Christian faith and our commission as Christians for granted. It is time for America to return to God, for Christians to be a part of a local body of believers, and for the Word of God to be the standard for governing our life.
I have committed my life to ministering the Word of God and the person of the Holy Spirit to all that are in need. My passion is the local church, to see it as a spiritual oasis and a spiritual lighthouse for all to come to and be equipped with the power and love of God. I have also been called to the world, to teach and minister this great gospel of God’s grace and the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have ministries in East and West Africa, and Australia. We would like to visit them at least once a year, but last year we were only able to go to Australia. This March, we have been asked to do pastor training seminars in both Kenya and Uganda. We will also be doing a four-day crusade in Uganda.
This is the biggest trip we have planned so far. Please realize that we only respond to where we are invited. We trust the Lord that by faith we will be able to go and provide the teaching, ministry, and the support that these nations are asking of us. That includes travel expenses both to and in the nations we visit, plus gasoline, and food to feed those that attend our conferences, seminars, and crusades. It is only by the grace of God and the kindness of our partners that we are able to accomplish the assignment that God has for Dominion Grace Ministries. We ask that you consider helping in any way possible as the Lord directs. Every little bit helps so no amount is too small to help us to advance the kingdom of God in these areas.
I have completed the second year bible school for Dominion Grace and we are working on getting that on our websites. Remember we have four websites, dominiongrace.org, lifedominion.org, joefunaro.com, and dominiongrace.com.au, our Australian affiliate. You can also access all of our teachings via Youtube.com under Pastor Joseph A. Funaro. We continue to offer our newsletter and monthly teachings by mailing to those who want them, but our website, dominiongrace.org carries all of the same materials that we mail out. We are also available for prayer, ministry, or chat any time via phone, e-mail, or Skype or ooVoo. Elsa and I would like to thank all of you that believe in and support us in any way. You have no idea how much that means to us. Every love gift goes to the ministry and allows us to continue to preach, teach and exalt Jesus wherever we go.
I believe with all my heart that 2016 will be the greatest year that the church of Jesus Christ has experienced in a long time. I have great expectations for the body of Christ collectively and individually. If we can assist you in any way, or you are interested in being more involved with Dominion Grace Ministries or perhaps you would like us to come and minister to your church or city, please contact us and we would be glad to be of service to you. I pray for you now, that the life of the great and mighty Holy Spirit would permeate your entire being, that the world would see and experience Jesus through you.
