Welcome to our Partner Letters Archive . . .

Dear Partner,

From time to time I like to gather together a few of the many testimonies we receive of how your giving is helping us share the truth of God's word with people around the world. As you know we have worked diligently to make the teachings available "free like water" to everybody who desires to receive them … worldwide. For those who still do not have computers or access to the Internet, we still send them the teachings on cassette tape. For those who have computers but do not have high-speed Internet connections, we offer the GCM All-Series DVD which contains over 340 audio lessons that they can play on their computers or load onto their mp3 players. (Many people tell us they also make CD's of the lessons to give to friends and family who do not have computers.) The vast majority is using the Internet and they simply download the files directly or else they listen to the messages via audio-streaming.

Here are excerpts from a few testimonies of how all of these methods work together to increase the knowledge of God's Word around the world. Notice in this first one how an old-fashioned cassette tape introduced this missionary in Honduras to the teachings at the GCM website, and how those teachings introduced him to Pastor Dave Roberson, and through Dave's website he discovered the online book "The Walk Of The Spirit, The Walk Of Power." I have never been to Honduras. Neither has Pastor Dave. But the messages are reaching the ends of the earth.


Dear Gary:

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know just a little about what your ministry has meant to me. I live in Honduras, Central America. I was in church one day and my pastor (who is an American) had a tape on a table in his office. I asked him if I could borrow it. It was some guy named Gary Carpenter and the tape was from the Lessons from the Manna series. When I heard this tape I knew I wanted to know everything there was to know about this ministry. So I went online and started downloading your teachings when I saw a reference to Dave Roberson. I thought to myself I want to see what this Gary guy’s pastor is like because if his pastor is a flake then he is one too. So I go to Dave’s site and I find a link to download a book on the Holy Spirit. So I did. I printed it. I read it. It has changed my life. This started my journey into hours of praying in the Holy Spirit and the transformation of my walk with the Lord.

I have downloaded all of your materials. I want you to know that your teachings have transformed my life. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the Mustard Seed Faith series but all have been of tremendous edification.

The Lord called me to the ministry and I have been full time for three years in Honduras. Again I can't express the profound impact your ministry has had on my life. Thank you for following the Lord. Thank you for being obedient and getting this on the Internet. And if we never meet until we see each other in glory I just wanted to let you know that you have a brother that is teaching your stuff all across Honduras. D.D.



I have been blessed by the DVD you sent me last year, it's unbelievable what we have believed all this time which did not work for us. Now I know the truth.

Thank You,
Lusaka, Zambia



Thank you so much for teaching. I am blessed by what I have heard, I have downloaded and listened to about 50 messages so far. You teach in a way that I can get it. If you are ever in Israel, my home is open to you.

Blessings from Zion,


I could go on page after page with these testimonies but I think this is sufficient for you to see that your gifts are being put to good use. With the technology available to us today, much of the world can receive the truth of God's Word in ways that simply were not available in the past. There will always be the need for flesh and bone missionaries like the man in Honduras who will have to trek into foreign lands bearing the gospel on human shoulders. In my mind, they are the true heroes of the faith. But I am thankful for our part in the body of Christ. I am thankful that the Lord has given us these methods to teach the gospel and for partners like you who co-labor with us to nurture the sheep and to more fully equip soldiers of the cross for their work in foreign lands.

Sue and I love you and appreciate you. We thank God for your generous and giving heart. God bless you!

Your friend and co-laborer,

Gary Carpenter
