“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:3-6
With these words we would like to thank you for your fellowship in the gospel. The Amplified Bible says, ‘for your fellowship (your sympathetic cooperation and contributions and partnership)’. Partnership also means ‘to associate with’, in other words, when you become a partner of Vernon Davis Ministries, you are also associating yourself with this ministry. That is a sign of trust.
Your love and your faithfulness to the work of the Lord, in prayer as well as financial support, are a great encouragement to us. That is why we can say with all of our hearts, ‘in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel.’
We have seen the results of your prayers. Together we have won many victories for the kingdom of God. In the Netherlands as well as many other countries many people have been saved, healed and delivered. Believers have been edified by teachings from the precious Word of God, including many leaders.
But no matter how grateful we are for everything that happened until now, we still have a challenge before us, to preach the gospel everywhere in the world, to equip the saints for the ministry and to prepare the Church for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?” Romans 10:13-15
Many times we have expressed that there is nothing else that we want to do for the rest of our lives than preach the gospel of Jesus Christ all over the world. But we cannot go without your help. Every time you send your precious seed, you are helping us to ‘be sent’ to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. You make it possible for us to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ.
This foundation cannot exist without every gift that is given out of a believing heart, even if it is € 1 a month. We would like to encourage you to ask God in prayer, what you can do to help in the preaching of the Gospel to people who are lost without Him. We pray that, when you decide to join us as a partner, and want to sow your seed into this ministry, God will bestow His abundant blessings upon you.
Your partners in Christ,
Vernon & Ans Davis
