I have taken a couple of days off work to spend time with my Dad who is battling with cancer, which has been a great opportunity for me to put into practice all that we learned about at the conference; it has been great to be able to spend time with my family in the community that I grew up in. I have had quite a bit of time to meditate and observe upon how things used to be for me. It now tears at my heart to see so many wonderful people so locked up in the bondage of their traditions and rules.
In closing, I want to encourage each of you to stay focused on what God has called you to do. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. If you have any questions or concerns or just simply need to talk with someone, please feel free to contact any of us at any time.

Joe Keim Update: What an honor and a blessing it was to serve the Living God with you at the Amish Awareness Conference last week. Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule and coming with an open heart, willing to surrender all and follow where the Spirit of God leads. I have no doubt that the army of heaven rejoiced and eternity was impacted because of decisions that were made on April 22-23 in Eddyville, KY.
I saw people weeping at the altar; I saw hands stretched out toward heaven; I heard sincere cries going out from the lips of God’s children. Together, we experienced real worship and joy in the Lord. It has always been true that when God’s people lay their differences aside and come together in one place for one sole purpose – that is to humble ourselves before the King of kings and sincerely and passionately seek the heart of our God and Savior – lives are changed. God wins and Satan is defeated.
As I finish writing to you today, I want to remind you that we do a weekly one-hour conference call every Monday morning at 7:30am (Eastern Standard Time). We would love for you to join us. Simply dial (302) 202-1110 and enter the code 409703.
We also do a monthly one-hour conference call on the first Sunday night of the month at 8pm (Eastern Standard Time) using the same numbers listed above. Join us to discuss Bible topics and testimonies.
Serving together and making a difference in this generation,
Joe Keim, Map@MapMinistry.org
