Dear faithful friend —
We live in sobering times. Many nations, including America, are being shaken by violence, natural disasters and all kinds of evil. Nowhere is this more true than in the Middle East.
People have theories about why this is happening, but I believe the answer is simple: God is trying to get our attention. These events are not random. God is sovereignly allowing these events to shake us and to get our attention. God has given us a great responsibility in the last days to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in every nation before He returns. Surely this includes Israel and the Arab world the last frontiers of the Gospel.
In this year’s Donor Report, you will read about the remarkable things that God is doing in the Epicenter to advance His Kingdom in extraordinary ways. With your prayers and support, God is using The Joshua Fund to invest in ministries that are boldly and creatively sharing God’s love. They are communicating the Gospel via radio broadcasts, the Internet, Bible distribution, and their own personal witness, and by God’s grace they are reaching more people in the region than ever before. Indeed, after centuries of spiritual drought, the Church in the Middle East is bearing fruit again. Jews and Arabs are coming to faith, and are being baptized and discipled.
That’s why the work of The Joshua Fund is so important at this extraordinary moment in history. Similar to a venture capital fund, we come alongside small but growing and promising congregations and ministries and invest in them – with encouragement, with prayer, and, when appropriate, with financial resources – allowing them to plant more seeds and bear more fruit.
And that’s why we are so grateful for you, our dear partners in this work. We pray you are deeply blessed and encouraged as you share in the joy of what the Lord is doing through The Joshua Fund. Thank you so much for investing in us prayerfully and financially so that together we can help fulfill the Great Commission in the Epicenter.
May He alone be glorified!
— Joel C. Rosenberg, founder and chairman of The Joshua Fund
