The joy of Christmas is found in exalting Christ. As we think about our individual lives and our families, we marvel at the way Christ works on behalf of His people.
Keeping Christ the focus of our lives is tremendously important. As a ministry, it is always a blessing to hear that teaching the truths of Christianity has changed a person’s life. A ministry friend recently shared an account that confirmed the value of our teaching. In the course of a conversation at work, a co-worker recalled his education and described it as being from the principle approach. Being well-acquainted with our family, the friend asked her co-worker if his teachers and education had come from Pilgrim Institute. As she expected, his answer was, “yes.”
It has been about 20 years since this young man was taught by Pilgrim Institute, but he continues to value what he learned. His story could likely be repeated by many others-those who have directly received Pilgrim Institute training, and those who received teaching from a parent, teacher, pastor or friend who had received Pilgrim Institute training.
As the Lord continues to lead the ministry forward, we believe the message of Biblical teaching will equip many others to see the difference Christ and Christianity can make in the hearts of individuals and in the future of our nation. The battle for our nation has only intensified in recent years. As we move forward, it is important to remember that the only solutions are the Biblical principles of individual and local self government.
We are looking forward to the new ministry outreaches scheduled to be launched early in 2011:
A blog designed specifically to lead new contacts through the process of discovering what the principle approach offers for families, educators, and concerned citizens
Pilgrim Institute training offered online
In addition, we have the opportunity to pursue another publicity campaign promoting the Mighty Works of God history curriculum for children. A long-time ministry friend has compiled a list of influential people and organizations who might take an interest in promoting the books. Special funding will be required in order for the campaign to take place, so we are praying for the needed finances. The 2010 publicity was helpful, and we believe this campaign would be even more promising.
Every activity of the Pilgrim Institute ministry is made possible through prayer, financial support, and the important involvement of our ministry friends.
Knowing that you value the principles of liberty, would you prayerfully consider joining with us in ministry for the coming year? The ministry is supported through the gifts of friends who share the vision and believe that teaching the message of Biblical thinking is the only antidote for the secularism that is overtaking both families and our nation.
If you would like to make a gift, you may make a contribution online.
Please know that a special end-of-year gift or regular financial support would truly be a blessing.
If you’d like to communicate with us regarding this opportunity, we would be glad to hear from you. Email us at Info@PilgrimInstitute.org, or call us at (574) 277-1789.
