It will be a blessing and challenge. Please read our prayer letter and note the special projects and opportunities before us. There is much work to do.

NEWS BITS FROM HERE AND THERE America - A Spiritual Alert Don’t think for a nanosecond that Barack Hussain is going away. He will continue his diabolic, perverted agenda and the DC insiders will be a part. Don’t think for a nanosecond that Trump nor a Congressional majority will bring a spiritual awakening. That’s the point. George Bush, surely not the Clintons, nor Putin, China, or the Islamic crowd understand this is a spiritual war. Yes, Pastor, godly parents and Christians around the world, we are engaged in spiritual warfare. These are perilous times. Political and economic battles are important, carrying serious consequences, yet “little foxes spoil the vine.” Often we get weary in well doing and think the daily issues of separation and standards are not worth the effort. Yet that is exactly the devil’s strategy. Marriage, family, music, dress and entertainment are critical battlefronts. Satan preaches “don’t sweat the small stuff ” while that microscopic bacteria or cancer cell will kill you. We must be vigilant on all fronts. From the White House to my house, we all are critical to the success of our families, churches and nation. God help us to be faithful. US Mission Field Recent statistics show 45% of Americans identify as “unchurched.” Every Sunday over 25 million Americans do not attend Church anywhere. That makes America the 3rd most unchurched country in the world. A thousand churches close in America every year. In India Only 2.2% of 1.28 billion people in India are professing Christians. Reports indicate that persecution of Christians are increasing. In Nepal Eight Christians have been arrested and face trial for distribution of Bibles to school children. 4•The Voice in the Wilderness - Nov & Dec 2016 Virtual Edition

NEWS BITS CONTINUED The Voice in the Wilderness Ministry reprinted Sophie Muller’s (Missionary to the Jungles) Bible translation work in Curipaco, Piapoco, Puinave, and Guahibo languages. In 1999 Brother Williamson was privileged to stand where Sophie served for 50 years and witness 1500 precious souls come walking through the jungle and canoeing down the Orinoco to receive the Word of God in their indigenous language. Indeed it was a blessing! Today, we need a printer in Colombia to print the indigenous language Bibles for the jungle work. Missionary Gage is researching this possibility. Pray the Lord will provide someone in country that can produce quality Bibles at a reasonable cost for the Indian brethren. • Peace - It doesn’t mean to be in a place where there is no NOISE, TROUBLE or HARDWORK. It means to be in the MIDST of those things and still be CALM in YOUR HEART. Abide in Christ for He is the PRINCE of PEACE. • RISK more than others think is safe. CARE more than others think is wise. DREAM more than others think is practical. EXPECT more than others think is possible. For more resources, visit •5

Let me recommend a rewarding study. In 2017 read through the book of Romans. After you have read all 16 chapters, now do a study of this powerful Epistle. The doctrinal and theological content is a must for every believer. You will be scripturally equipped to answer why you believe as well refute the objections of non-believers. “The just shall live by faith.” Your study of The Epistle to the Romans will increase and strengthen your faith. As a help in your study read through Matthew Henry’s commentary on Romans. In 2017, watch The Voice in the Wilderness for further study articles on this topic and a sermon entitled: IS GOD’S WORK IN YOUR WILL? “One of the most important documents a man ever signs is his Will. I can tell better what a man had in his heart by reading his Will than I can by reading his obituary. His obituary tells the world what his friends thought of him; his Will reveals what he had in his heart.” - A. M. Vollmer For as (a man) thinketh in his heart, so is he- Proverbs 23:7. Out of (the heart) are the issues of life - Proverbs 4:23. A bequest in your Will to The Voice in the Wilderness, Inc. can assure that the outreach of this ministry at home and abroad will continue after you have gone to your eternal reward. Prayerfully consider us in your Estate Planning. Thank you! 6•The Voice in the Wilderness - Nov & Dec 2016 Virtual Edition

The Mind Transformed (continued) “THE TRANSFORMED MIND” Key verses will be: Romans 12:1&2. The basic outline is: • HIS Doctrine - Romans chapters 1- 11 • My Duty - Romans chapters 12 - 16 • Your Decision - Romans 12:24 -27 These are perilous times and as God’s people we need Bible thinking - a Transformed Mind. The Apostle Paul by inspiration gives us the foundation to stand on and presents the practical for living the good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. This is not legalism or hypocrisy. This is “The Transformed Mind.” “Therefore,” as the Apostle says, it is all right here for the hungry student. Dig in! Feast and fill to your hearts content. Behold The Transformed Mind!
