The Blessings of 2021

There is much to praise God for this year, despite the many challenges we have faced. Several ASI Columbia Union members shared words of gratefulness and encouragement during this holiday season. We hope it encourages you as we step into 2022.


Greetings fellow Laymen in the LORD's vineyard,

As the year comes to a close, I would like to thank GOD for enabling us to participate in something that we never thought we could do: reach people with the gospel in the Swahili language on Facebook.

Also we are thankful for being able to send a 40-foot container with literature, mostly Spirit of Prophecy books to Kenya, and toys to an orphanage and churches. It just arrived this month.

We had been discouraged by so many processes to follow, we almost despaired. But GOD took over and it went through. Praise the LORD, we can say, "Ebenezer."

I would like to encourage you to reach out to your neighbors, as we are admonished in the Spirit of Prophecy that we should know our neighbors and their spiritual condition! How can we do this? The Master knows that this is possible, even when we have fished all night and have not been able to get anything. We can say like Peter, "Nevertheless"  because You said so .. we shall do it and we shall be surprised.

We are nearing home, JESUS is coming soon! Maranatha! Blessings!

Thank you and praise God for the privilege of sharing what the Awesome Almighty God is doing through the ministry of Project Restore.

God gave us forethought to step out in faith and order the paper for the printing of 5 million full-text Great Controversy paperback books. Once these are printed and distributed, the Lord will have blessed us with the printing and distribution of over 25 million books, all to God's glory.

In Christ's love,

Ron & Pat Goss

Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore.
