We Care Grows
Telephone - 803-220-9437
The new ministry called We Care, focused on reaching out to the family members of those being held in custody by reason of some crime, is beginning to show some Godly blessing. Rod Rockwell and Loui Pappas lead this ministry. Rod has recently been appointed a Chaplain for the Lexington County, South Carolina Detention Center. He was given an orientation and is now able to minister to inmates and, through invitation, with family members.
Loui and Rod are looking to obtain Bibles that can be given to inmates and their family and friends. This would be a good ministry for some folk to support. On his first visit to talk and pray with inmates, several asked him to get them a Bible. Chaplain Rod reported that he was able to pray with and for several. Family members that were contacted by telephone were offered prayer on the phone.
We Care is designed to help folks who may be “missed” by other ministries. We Care can pray for and with inmates (and others alleged to have committed criminal acts) and their families. Counseling is available. We Care will help those who need a church family to be connected with churches that are willing to receive people going through these difficult times. We Care will work to connect other helping organizations with folks, some of whom are devastated by the arrest of a loved one. Sometimes the family’s source of income is lost under these circumstances. Emotional and spiritual needs often are grave.
Should you, your group, or your church desire to help, we will gladly bring a report to you or to a gathering. If anyone desires to support the work with finances, please send gifts to P O Box 4332, Irmo, SC 29063. Mark the gift for We Care and it will be directed toward those specific needs.
The following little poem expresses the desires of Jesus Every Day Ministries, Inc.
So Send I You - Margaret Clarkson
So send I you to labour unrewarded
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown
To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing
So send I you to toil for Me alone
So send I you to bind the bruised and broken
Over wandering souls to work, to weep, to wake
To bear the burdens of a world a-weary
So send I you to suffer for My sake
So send I you to loneliness and longing
With hart a-hungering for the loved and known
Forsaking kin and kindred, friend and dear one
So send I you to know My love alone
So send I you to leave your life's ambition
To die to dear desire, self-will resign
To labour long, and love where men revile you
So send I you to lose your life in Mine
So send I you to hearts made hard by hatred
To eyes made blind because they will not see
To spend, though it be blood to spend and spare not
So send I you to taste of Calvary
"As the Father hath sent me, so send I you"
Can You Help?
We want to make a comprehensive list of service agencies (especially Christian ones)

How should I witness to my coworkers?
When we interact with people on a daily basis, we have many opportunities for sharing our faith. First, be sure you are respectful to your employer and set a good example in your work ethic by working “as to the Lord” (Col. 3:23). When others around you grumble and complain, if you have a calm, forgiving, steadfast spirit, it will make an impression. As you respond in a Christ-like way to angry coworkers and stressful circumstances, people will see a difference in your life.
If your boss forbids it, don’t witness on work time. Instead, keep a pile of Million Dollar Bills or some other tract on your desk but don’t give them out. If someone asks for one, let them take it. Displaying a favorite Scripture or a devotional calendar, or quietly reading your Bible during lunchtime, may prompt others to inquire about your faith.
To not infringe on your employer’s time, invite unsaved coworkers out to lunch (not the opposite sex) and witness to them there. Just ask for their thoughts on what happens after death. That will let you know if they are open to the gospel. If you detect contention, apologize and instead use closet prayer. Make a list of workers and uphold them before God, asking for divine openings.
In the meantime, let your love shine. Always be friendly and courteous, and show genuine interest in your coworkers’ lives. Share their joys and sorrows by congratulating them in their good times and offering to pray for them in their bad times. Be sure you do pray for them, then follow up by asking them about the situation you prayed for. They will be moved by your concern. If coworkers are discussing what they did during the previous weekend, you can share your excitement about attending church services or a special church event. Ask about their plans for celebrating Christmas or Easter; be nonjudgmental of their answer, and be ready to explain why you celebrate as you do.
Bringing home-baked goods or leaving a small gift with a note on a coworker’s desk can sometimes have a greater impact than a thousand eloquent sermons. We can show our faith by our works. Others may not like a tree of righteousness, but they cannot help but like its fruit.
For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. 1 Peter 2:15

May Our Lord Jesus Be Glorified
The last several weeks have been a blessing for Jesus Every Day Ministries. God has been doing good work in Bible
studies, preaching and counseling. The ministry also continues to reach out through the distribution of gospel
materials. We appreciate the work that Torrance Spigner is doing along with members of the Board of Directors. He
maintains supplies while continuing to personally pray and distribute. Torrance was delighted to share that he had
the privilege of leading another person in prayer to trust Christ as Savior. The reason these materials can be
purchased and distributed so widely is that people pray and give. Thanks to you as you share with us. What rewards
are being laid up in heaven is unknown excepting to God. There will be much joy as God reveals his blessings as we
arrive into our heavenly home.
The summer months are passed and we anticipate the fall with its cooler weather. Perhaps you are one who settles
into a school scheduled routine after Labor Day. We hope you will pray regularly for the evangelistic and discipleship
work of Jesus Every Day Ministries.
The work in the Philippines with Ken and Lilia Rose is very busy. They have seen some difficult struggles but our
Lord is sustaining them.

The Following Testimony Is From A Missionary Friend.
Written on February 4, 2013
Dearest missionary pastor,
It has been nearly a year since the Lord
caused us to meet one another. Many things have changed since then, but I can
declare that it was due to my the loss of my job and economic failure that I
understood that true life can only be given to us by God through Jesus Christ.
Last week I reflected much on my walk and I
realized that I was committing a grave error in the eyes of the Lord. In spite
of the fact that I've seen all the blessings that come to my family, I had not
yet made the most important step. A believer in a church I visited gave me a
beautiful example when he told me: how can you talk about this wine if you've
never drank it?
So on January 31, at 10:30 in the morning,
as I was alone in my bedroom in the city where I am working, reading the word
of God I felt a strong need to confess my sins to God!
I put the Bible down I lifted my head and
close my eyes and I opened my heart to God, confessing all of the sins that
passed through my mind. I think I went back until I was about six years old. In
these past four days since that day I've not stopped presenting my sins to God.
Today I firmly believe that Christ died on the cross for my sins and I
recognize him as my only Savior!
Today I can certainly say that the most
important thing in my life is my wife and my children, but that which has the
first place is my Lord because tomorrow, even today I could lose my family in
an accident and I would feel truly lost without my Lord.
When my children disobey me as father and
parent it is like a sword which pierces me, it hurts me… So I asked myself how
does the Lord see me? For 38 years I have disobeyed him and have done so much
to sin against him. And what did God do in response to my sins? … He sent his
only Son to die in my place. I am left speechless…
Since I began to read the word of God I
understood that it is not a book like any other book but it is a book which, if
it is read with the heart, is not there to simply inform people, but to
transform people into new creatures.
Because only if the glory of God is upon us
can we love our enemies.
That which has really touched me is the
greatest commandment of God! Love your neighbor as yourself… Since I have taken
this for myself I continue to ask myself who am I to judge others, since I will
be judged with the same measure both in good and in bad.
I hope we can see you soon. A big hug to
you, your wife, and all of the brethren.
As you reminded us in a sermon, there is nothing
on the earth that can satisfy our hearts except….

Eau Claire Cooperative Health Centers has a large number of facilities. At James E. Clyburn Community Health Center on Monticello Road thousands of patients are seen. Free literature is available for clients in the Pharmacy waiting area. Please pray that many will take the materials and be helped to know our Lord Jesus Christ better.
One Little Dime
By Dr. Jed Snyder, President, Jesus Every Day Ministries, Inc.
At a men’s Bible study one of the employees of Turnage Motor Company (turnagemotorco.com) told us of a little tiny girl who looked up at the display of Jesus DVDS and other materials that was on their counter. She was a bit timid but clearly wanted to say something. The kind salesman asked her what she wanted. She said, “I have a gift for you to help buy DVDS.” She reached up and gave him a dime.
That one little dime has turned into enough to buy 100 DVDS of the Jesus Story. Many will see the wonder of our Savior because of one tiny little girl with one little dime. How grateful we are that God touched others through that little child. It is this kind of faith that our Lord was speaking of when he said, “unless we have the faith of a little child, we will not see the kingdom of heaven.” Please pray that just the right people will get those DVDS and that when we get to be with the Lord, we will hear of many who join us in heaven because of one tiny little child.
Maybe God wants you to give so others may know of Jesus Christ. No gift is too small. We are so very grateful that you pray and give as you can.
May blessings again from our Lord abundantly fill your life full to overflowing.

Philippine Report – Please Read and Pray
I bought the last crow bar-nailpuller in Talibon for P200 ($5) and gave it to an elderly couple whose house has collapsed in Sagbayan today. They will lend it to neighbors whos houses have also been destroyed. I also gave a flashlight to every house in her area and every destroyed house in the entire Barangay. 55 flashlights all together. $2 each flashlight.
I organized the Talibon firetruck to be filled with Purified water and given to the people in a remote area of Sagbayan today. The truck is making deliveries every day but mostly to the center of towns. I had to do a lot of manipulating to get permission to take the truck to a remote needy area. Mayor, Fire Chief etc...
Yesterday I helped build a Tent house for Lilia's cousin in Buenavista.
Tomorrow we are taking a load of grocery items to Loon. This is where the old catholic church was completely destroyed. The area is difficult to access and roads/bridges were cut to the area. I think it has had the most damage. Our guide is trying to find out back mountain roads we can use to access the area. He has many relatives living there he wants to visit and help.
