Gary Carpenter Ministries
About once a year I like to let you read some of the many testimonies that come in from all over the world. These are people who are being helped in their walk with God through the teachings you make available freely by your financial support. There are nearly 200 nations on planet earth. Even though I have preached the gospel on four continents in my lifetime (so far), it is unlikely that I will physically visit all of those countries. But with twenty first century technology we are able to cast a large net for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many years ago the Lord said to me that He was able to send my "voice" much faster and less expensively than He could send my "body." I am amazed and humbled as we receive these praise reports from countries I have never physically visited, yet by way of the internet and MP3 audio and video by way of YouTube they are receiving the teachings we are commanded to give to the world. Jesus said,
Mat 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Obeying that command is the foundation of all that we do. Because we love Him, we continue to "feed His lambs" freely without charge. The apostle Paul wrote, "How shall they hear without a preacher? How shall they preach lest they be sent?" Every time we receive one of these praise reports the fruit abounds to your account because you helped us "send" the teachings. We have far too many of these testimonies to include in a single letter but here is a sampling for you to enjoy. I have included some from the USA as well as a few from other countries:
"Hi Gary & Sue, thank you for being a blessing to my life. Your teachings have blessed me greatly. I have always been seeking to live a life led by the Holy Spirit and I thank God for using you as such a wonderful vessel." M. K. - Singapore
"Thank you Gary Carpenter Ministries. For years I had been on and off from church because I lost my trust in people and their teachings; but the messages I heard from you gave me strength to hold on to my faith in God. Please keep fighting the good fight, and may God bless your heart." J. H.-British Columbia
"Your media teachings have changed my life by teaching me how to hook up with the Teacher [Holy Spirit]. I would never have bought them. Thank you for making them available free of charge." S.C. - South Carolina, USA
"Dear Gary, Thank you for making the teachings freely available on the web. Praise the Lord for your obedience and the way you are able to explain the scriptures, interweaving your experiences and emotions, so that we are able to understand that we are all in the same boat. A bunch of us were at a point where we seem to know what is Christianity, and yet do not know how to go about attaining maturity, the way the Father would want us to. Thank you, thank you for your sharing and teaching. God bless you & Sue & all the extended family richly in His Love!" S. S. - Singapore
"I am from Johannesburg in South Africa. I heard about Gary from a friend of a friend and I've since wanted to make contact just to appreciate Gary's teachings. They have changed my life and I'm still learning day by day. May God continue to bless him and increase him and his family. The work he does and the messages reach the whole world indeed. Thank you!" S. M. - Johannesburg, South Africa
"Thank you so very much for allowing God to use you to teach Christians how to have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. After a lifetime in church, searching many different churches of various denominations. Following many rabbit trails, including 12 years as one of Jehovah's witnesses. Two years ago I was given your online link. Thanks be to God! I get everything online! I download it to my iTunes, transfer it to my phone. Listen while I work as a maid. I literally listened to 'The Father's Plan' at least 20 times … before I had assimilated it to a point of moving on to the rest of your media files. Thank you for teaching me to know my Heavenly Father!" S. J. - South Carolina, USA
"Hello Gary & Sue, I have been listening to your archived teachings at the website for twenty months and I wanted to tell you how enormously my life has changed. I am constantly encouraging anyone that the Lord directs me to with regard to the 'Believer's Boot Camp' series. A friend introduced me to your teaching and I have been abundantly grateful ever since. I am so blessed. Showers of blessings and huge hugs." M. Y. - Gordon, Australia
As you can see, people all over the world are being blessed by the teachings. There are testimonies like these from so many more countries that I have never visited such as Norway, The Netherlands, England, Ireland, Brazil, New Zealand, Germany, China, Japan, and many more. As the apostle Paul wrote to his faithful partners at Philippi,
Philippians 4:15-20 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. 17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Every day fruit is abounding to your account as these precious people around the world are being freely taught God's Word. SALUTATION, thank you for your gift of AMOUNT. Sue and I love you and appreciate you. We thank God for your generous and giving heart. God bless you!
