BOB AND LOIS GILLESPIE
a ministry of apologetics reaching the lost and equipping believers
"Be ready always..." - I Peter 3:15
Blessed Be Your Name

Lois and I first heard this song while we were serving in Niger. Living and ministering in the hottest capital in the world, the phrase "when the sun's shining down on me" stood out for us. How easy it is to sing this song "when the world's all as it should be." Blessed be the name of the Lord!

But we know "You give and take away". We've experienced both many times, and as a family, we're experiencing it again. Lois' 91-yr mother is in the hospital with multiple issues, and will transfer to rehab on palliative care. We hope to have her with us for Christmas, but we're not sure that's going to happen. She may rather spend her first Christmas in heaven.

We've been tremendously blessed to meet our twin grandsons Atticus and Oliver for the first time. Our son David and his family wanted to see grandma, so they flew in from Colorado. It's been a very sweet and special time, even though we all miss grandma and wish she could be with us. But once again...
  
Though there's pain in the offering...
When the darkness closes in, Lord,
Still I will say...
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, Blessed be Your Name.
God has called me to be a messenger to alert the church to the multiple deceptions hurled our way, and to stir the church to be the Salt and Light we should be in this post truth culture.  
 
Please pray for us as we travel this next year.  Pray for Lois, as she just had knee replacement surgery. 

Pray that people will have open ears to hear the truth in this age of deception. 

We DO believe in the miracle of Christmas.
A google search about "miracles of Jesus' birth" results in 9,750,000 articles each with their own list of miracles, and prophecies, that were part of the birth of Jesus. Take the time to read some of these articles; it will bless your heart.
