Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from
Good News Ministries



For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder,
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6


Dear Friends,
This verse from Isaiah foretelling our Lord’s birth centuries before He came to earth fills me with such great joy every time I read it. To think that God cared so much for you and me to send his Son to die for us so that we might be reconciled to God. Hallelujah!

This time of year, Vic and I are filled with another great joy and that is for you--our prayer and financial partners. You’ve stood by us, some of you for many years, to see the salvation and restoration of many, many people God has brought to our path. We are partnering together to bring forth much fruit for the Kingdom!

Whether or not you and I communicate personally, be assured that Vic and I remember you before the throne each day, asking the Lord to meet all your needs according to His riches in heaven. This Christmas, I pray you take time to renew your love for the Lord and reawaken your appreciation for what he’s done for you. And we pray you have a blessed Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!

The GN bus took Vic and Judy about 8000 miles this year reaching out to people from California to New Mexico, Louisiana to Wyoming, Montana to Washington, and back to California. God protected them through tornados, hail storms, dangerous roads, and all kinds of drivers! Thank you Jesus.

What’s in Your Wallet?

Toward the first of the year, the Lord gave me a word from Psalm 65:11: You crown the year with your goodness. And your paths drip with abundance. Along the way, I handed out prayer cloths and had people write Psalm 65:11 on it and store it in their purse or wallet. I told them, “If you get in a hard place, pull the prayer cloth out and read this passage in the Word.”

Some people reported that they had taken their prayer cloth out and found courage from the Scripture to face their situation. Others haven’t had to use theirs yet, but the time will come when they do.

Recently someone told me, “For me, it was not such a good year dripping with abundance!” I asked him, “Did you have a roof over your head and sleep in your own bed each night? Did you go to bed with a full tummy, and did you wake up each morning? If you did, then it has been a good year, much better than so many people in our world.” Truly, we can go into 2010 because He brought us through 2009! Thank you Jesus for your words of life found in your Bible!

Pastor Ellis in the Philippines Writes

ellisfamily.jpgI would like to extend my appreciation for your support of our ministry to the poor here in the Philippines, especially toward our preschool. Dr. Judy has visited us several times and apart from my wife, she is my most trusted confidant and encourager in the work we do here.

Our dream of a preschool was ignited when Dr. Judy prophesied God’s will for it, and four months later construction of the building was underway! Our preschool children call Dr. Judy “Mother” and our leaders look to her as a friend and equipper of ministers. We are so thankful for her husband Vic for allowing us to have her every once in a while.

May you at Good News Ministries continue to be bearers of the Good News wherever God leads.
