Dear Friends,

During this Christmas season let’s remember that Jesus is the ONLY reason for the season. I went through the first half of my life celebra- ting Christmas and truly not understanding that phrase. Sure, we had family, friends, wonderful food, and gifts. I had all the stuff that is supposed to make a wonderful Christmas, but we never truly unwrapped the only gift sent from heaven to us, JESUS!

Vic and I have traveled all over this USA and still see so many people living the same way we did. Praise the Lord, NO MORE living that life for us! Jesus entered this world with the words, “We have no room for you in the inn.”

“He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His
name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:11-13).

This Christmas let’s all make room for Jesus and unwrap all the gifts He has for us.
Christmas means “Christ for the masses” and all year long we need to show others by our life style that they need Christ the Anointed one to calm the storms of life....We live in very harsh times right now and HE is the only calmer of the storms!

To all of our partners we want to thank you for your faithful prayers and finances. We are praying health and finances for each of you, and a wonderful 2016!
God bless you.

JESUS IN THE STORMS OF LIFE.... —leaving 2015 and heading
into 2016—

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Tribulation is anything that brings great distress. It is pressure that comes from living in a fallen world and we all face it! Maybe not like people in Iran or Syria right now, but pressures, nonetheless. Here are a few recent ones for Vic and me....

(Top pic) We were about to leave one of our places of ministry when another RV hit our truck, damaging both the truck and boat loader. But praise God, insurance was generous and Vic got it repaired.

(Left) We had just arrived back to the California base of GN coming over many curvy mountains from Klamath, CA, when the compressor went out on the bus. God met us in that storm and got us back home. We focus on the good- ness and not on the tribulation. Vic speaks to these storms... “O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory” Psalm 108:1.

Outreach to Men Hoping
for Work in Reno

These are just some of the men waiting for someone to come by and offer them work. We went to give them a lunch, new socks, and we prayed over them for work. Not 5 minutes after praying, a contractor showed up and hired 2 of them. This brought hope to them all. Also we gave each of them my book, From Rags to Riches. One of the men said, “I have read this book!” It encouraged him to know that this same Jesus who worked miracles in our lives could do the same in his. Yes, Jesus meets us in the storms of life.


The pronouncement of Christmas each year is the greatest celebration among the children in the Philippines! It is the Good News of hope for many of them who all but lost their hope. Vic & Dr. Judy and GN Ministries bring that hope to them, not just at Christmas but year round! On behalf of our team and the children, thank you for partnering with us in proclaiming hope and salvation to children who need Good News! - Pastor Ellis

Need an Encouraging Word?

Judy sends a short text message to over 200 people each morning. Here’s the one Judy sent August 20:

“Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3.20). We are not limited by our past, family background, education, or anything else in the natural. God’s grace defines who we are and what we can do. our potential is immeasurable. The only thing that can limit us is our faith. Shalom!
