Dear brothers and sisters, greeting!

When I was preparing to write this letter, I prayed for God’s guidance, and two Bible verses emerged in my mind. One is in Romans 11:34, where Paul says, “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” The other verse is Micah 6:8 – “He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” This verse points out that we must walk in the direction God leads us at the same pace as His, if we want to walk with the LORD.

Romans 11:34 is actually a quote from Isaiah 40: 13. Though living in the different eras of history, Paul and Isaiah were both aware that God’ mercy transcends the stubbornness of men and the salvation is not merely for the twelve tribes of Israel. The Bible has clearly revealed to us, whoever comes to God by the faith in Jesus Christ will become children of God. Today, hundreds of millions of Muslim are still under the control of wrong doctrines and lies. They are created by God and God loves them. Nothing can be more powerful than the words of God to rescue them from the dominion of darkness and bring them into the glorious kingdom of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

With the help of two Arabic-speaking pastors, who translated and proofread the Arabic scripts, Spring of Water International Ministries (SOW) is currently producing The Book of Esther Arabic Bible Study Set, to make it a tool of mission and disciple training in the Middle East. We are expecting The Book of Esther Arabic Bible Study Set to be released by next May. However, we are facing the needs of approximately $50,000 production costs. (You can read more details of the Production Schedule and the Estimated Budget.) For decades, the Arabic Muslim has no one to tell them the biblical truth. Now is the opportunity for you to walk with the Lord at the same pace, in the direction of God’s saving grace, to direct the Muslims away from the wrong path.

I look forward to your partnership in the production The Book of Esther Arabic Bible Study Set with your prayers and financial support. I sincerely invite you to join SOW to “walk with the Lord,” for “the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who maintains covenant loyalty with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations” (Deut. 7:9). May the words of God in Ephesians 6:24 —”Grace be with all who have an undying love for our Lord Jesus Christ” bring you and your family the fullness of an abundant life. May the Lord’s joy and Jesus’s gracious favors and peace be with you and your family forever!

Gratefully yours in Christ,
