Dear Bruce
I have been listening to you for over a year and have heard you talk about ( the catholic priest ) almost daily but you never named him
Finally today I heard his name Father Des God bless him into helping you make you into the spiritual person you are

What a powerful & emotional message in today’s video, as we go our Lenten journey with Bruce. I was touched by the prayer at the end, really powerful stuff!! Certainly food for thought in this video. How pleased we are that Father Des guided you in your youth & prepared you for the work you do in this missionary. A humble thank you does not seem enough.

Ukraine & Russia Conflict – Sunday service and message Listening to this re peace and non violence: Ukraine did exactly this before the eyes of the world. They sat on in silence and peace refusing to attack, defend or fight while they watched from their windows and houses and streets – the Russian Army roll their tanks to the border and then finally over their borders, through all their streets and cities. Still they remained defiantly in a peace stance. They never fought or rose to the provocation to fight. None of us are sinless. This post is not about… Read more »

If we will not go, who will. The harvest is great and the workers are few. I pray many will hear this message today and come to know and accept You into their hearts.

It is a privilege to be part of this Ministry Bruce, Rosemary and your whole team…. 🙏

I tried, but could only come across the minimum amount which is R300 and right now, I don’t have that. But I believe I’ll be able to sow into this ministry very soon. 🙏

He does!! It brings Him great joy when we pray for each other! No greater love than to spend time (which is a treasured gift) in prayer! Thanksgiving is a state of mind not a holiday😉. Be blessed today, peace and a very happy heart is yours!🕊

Prayer has been so difficult for me. Not Praying but feeling effective. Learning to pray with you is one of many gifts of Lent for me. I am writing down my prayers in order to remember them and when I am struggling with my words to make prayer meaningful and passionate, reading my prayers help keep me on point and path. Thank you.

I have just watched today’s lesson. Thank you Bruce, that’s all I can say. Today would have been the 13th wedding anniversary of our daughter and late son-in-law (cancer). She and their two young children live three and a half hours away from us and she was heading to visit Pete at ‘his spot’ at the cemetery when we spoke to her this afternoon, after she had finished work. It is 23 months since Pete died and she is sad, angry and needs to feel God’s loving arms around her, comforting her, and to hear his whisper in her ears.… Read more »

I want to know if you believe , that faith alone in Jesus is sufficient for salvation. That there is nothing we can do to add to what Jesus did for us .
Do you believe that you have to be catholic to be saved?

Sandie

God knows your heart! His Word says if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord you are saved! Be a Christian, a Christ follower…. Your denomination is your choice! Bible based, believing in God the Father, Jesus His one and only Son and the blessed gift of the Holy Spirit.. the Most Holy Trinity that is Truth! Jesus 1st and center of everything! Be very blessed!

Heartfelt and amazing! 🕊I can’t thank Father Des enough for mentoring you, I can’t thank Our Heavenly Father for sending people in my life to bring me to an awareness of His great Love, the beauty of agreeing in prayer for the perfect Will of God in their life! We are living in desperate time and The Holy Trinity is the only answer! Holy Spirit…may we totally depend upon you for comfort, guidance and direction so needed! Bruce, Rosemary and team thank you for all you do to make Jesus real to all of us in need!

Growing spiritually has been an inward spiral. Slow to go around at first but as I understood some I understood more. As Jesus changed me some he began to change me more. As I looked for God’s love and compassion in my life I began to see and lean into God more. He truly wants me to live an abundant life bearing fruit as I cling to the ine.
