The Cause Ministry Newsletter February 2009

Dear Friend,

As The Cause Ministry is in its seventh year of ministering to youth and young adults (as well as older adults), I see how God has worked in the past and know without a doubt that God is wanting to continue the work He has started with us. Many times I have thought, “perhaps it is time for a ‘normal’ life,” but then God opens up another door to go and minister in yet a bigger way to the Youth and for the Youth of this generation. Our God is a God who says, “You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things” (Matthew 25: 21). And that seems to be just what He is saying to The Cause Ministry today.

Throughout these past years The Cause has ministered through scripture, music, preaching, personal evangelism, public evangelism, and through reaching out and just being a friend to those that need it. All this is done with a love and passion that only God can give us. God has allowed us to see people receive Bibles for the first time, sing from their hearts to there creator and people become more devoted to a life that God is calling them to. Why does He allow us to go out and accomplish these things? Is it because we are perfect? No! But, it is because we are willing to be used by God. He is looking for a people that will stand up and dedicate themselves to a deeper walk with Him. A people that is not ashamed to make decisions for Him; a people who will sacrifice, if necessary, worldly comfort for the sake of the only Cause truly worth living and worth dieing for, the Cause of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Today, I write this letter to inform you with more of who we are, where we have come from, and where we are going in the future. Only God knows the distant future, but for today, I know of some of the steps He is calling us to make. At the end of last year, I was contacted by Elder Nyamari from Kenya, Africa. He told me how he had read about us in Insight Magazine when The Cause was the Cover Story in the summer of 2007. He and his church are impressed that we (Lance Mishleau & Randy Paulsen) are to come and lead out in an evangelistic series in his home area for an evangelistic outreach that will reach 1000 – 3000 souls in his home country. The dates will be from March 28 – April 14. With being blessed by God with a new evangelism radio program on one of their local stations, we will be able to reach even more with the powerful message of God’s Grace and Love and His purpose for the end-time church. The potential is great, but in order to meet that potential, we need your help.

The people of the church in Nyanza Province of Kenya, Africa are able to help with some food and lodging cost while we are there but will not be able to supply more than that. The costs that we are looking to cover add up to only $6990. I say “only” because that is not a lot of money to reach the 1000 – 3000 souls that we are looking to share God with! The cost to reach that many here in the states can reach 3 times that amount if not more. Please search deep to give $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, $1000 or more. With a fast approaching due date, we urgently ask for whatever you can do to help.

We know that God is calling us for this work and that there are God’s people praying for The Cause Ministry from many parts all around the world with a hope that this ministry will succeed in doing its part in following after the Great Commission (Matthew 28). We ask that you pray about this and if the Lord speaks to you and moves you to help out in any way do not be afraid to answer His call! In the past we have learned that God keeps His promise of blessing when you trust in Him and go out on faith to do the things He wills you to (Jeremiah 17:7, 8). We appreciate any and all that you can do concerning our financial needs, and also ask for your prayers for the Lord’s guidance as we continue seeking to do His will. Please make checks payable to: The Cause (memo: Africa) and send to the address above.

We thank you for your help and prayers and may God richly bless you in all that you do!

In His Service,
