The Lord says to us, “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18,19

Dear Friends,
Vic and I are in San Jose, California. The Good News Bus is fixed and running great, praise God. Vic is once again working for a couple of months at Jubilee Christian Center doing carpentry projects for them. We appreciate Pastor Dick Bernal giving Vic the opportunity to work a few months each year over the past 20 or more years.

Pastor Juanita gave Judy the opportunity to speak in her women’s ministry. It was a powerful time of refreshing and empowering the women with boldness for 2016. The Holy Spirit certainly showed up with His gifts.....

We had the privilege of preaching at Pastors Andy and Linda Salinas’ fellowship in South San Jose. The Holy Spirit brought change and challenge to each person.

Before coming to San Jose, we were at the Good News home-base in northern California. We ministered in various places and encouraged the people to make sure they are living a life that reflects the knowledge of Jesus’ soon return.

I also shared that Good News Ministries ended 2015 by helping to raise donations for the less fortunate by ringing the Salvation Army bell. And we entered 2016 the same way, by handing out lunches and the Gospel of John to the needy. The Lord says, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to me” (Matthew 25:40), and I challenge us all to do just that.

Our newsletter can only highlight some of what GN is doing, but it will give you a glimpse into what you are partnering with. Vic and I can GO because of your prayers and financial support, and you GO with us because of that. We pray a 2016 blessing over you all. God bless you.

Food for Thought.....Vic says he ponders this promise of God...
and maybe all of us should.

“Let Your work appear to Your servants, and Your glory to their children. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.” Psalm 90:16-17



Judy's Books

From Rags to Riches (autobiography)
Faith, Does It Really Move Mountains?
On the Road again with God.

And her latest book soon to go to the printer, The Path of the Spirit.

Some of the places Good News donates Judy’s books to are jails and RV park libraries. One leader of a Bible study at an RV park in Delta Shores, California wrote Judy asking for more copies of her book on Faith. She said she uses the book in her teaching. She also gives out the Rags to Riches to people in the park.

An inmate from Elmwood County Jail wrote Judy, “I am reading your awesome book Faith, Does It Really Move Mountains? Can you please send me a Bible?” Judy was glad to send this inmate a Bible.

“I love to get these letters to share with you about how the books placed in prisons and jails all over the U.S.A. are changing lives,” Judy said.

Judy’s books may be ordered from or the Good News website:

The Good News Storehouse

Hazel (Mom) sorts through and folds donated clothing in the Good News Storehouse. It’s a lot of work to sort through bags of clothing and make sure each piece is in good condition. Hazel then hangs them up or folds them and places on the appropriate shelf.
Once the storehouse is full, it’s time to deliver the clothes to people who can use them. This year, the clothing went to help Pastors Andy and Linda Salinas (pictured) start a clothing ministry at their church in South San Jose. This will certainly bless the people of the church and others in their community.

Every year the outreach with clothing is different but each year we completely empty the storehouse and God fills it up again to continue the blessing. Good News has helped many churches start their own clothing bank over the past 20 years.
