My name is Pastor Wayne Ayer, and I currently have the privilege of participating as a member on the team that is responding to the call and preparing for the Amish Awareness conference in April. I am personally so excited about what God is doing in my heart and life during these days leading up to the Amish Awareness conference; I couldn't be more thrilled to see God working in such a mighty way.
Recently,I had the privilege of spending some time among the Amish in my part of Pennsylvania, and what a day it was! God is doing a great work and is calling people to reach the Amish with the glorious gospel of Jesus.
The greatest privilege a child of God can have is to the take the gospel to the overlooked, the ignored, and the discounted. I truly feel that at this conference, we will be embarking on a day in the life and ministry of Mission to Amish People; I believe that through this conference, God is going to raise up an even greater army to take the gospel to these precious friends and neighbors in our American back yard.
Would you pray today about attending the Amish Awareness Conference (AmishAwareness.com) this spring? It will most assuredly provide you with a great encounter with God and will also reveal God's dream for the Amish and the world to you.
Might I challenge you not only to consider enlisting yourself, but also to spread the word about the conference by inviting other believers as well, so that the local church might get involved and fulfill their job in reaching the Amish too. It is the responsibility of every local New Testament church that preaches the clear unclouded gospel of Jesus Christ to take the truth to the Amish, and you can have a part in helping to make this happen.
As Matthew 1:21 says,"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people (the Amish) from their sins."
If you have not already, please register today (http://www.amishawareness.com/registration.html) and then pass the word along.
God bless and favor you, Friend, and may He continue to do great things through you.
See you in April!
Wayne Ayer on behalf of the ministry team.
With Awareness comes Responsibility! Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects, or sensory patterns. In the awareness level of consciousness, data can be confirmed by an observer without ever fully implying understanding.
The Amish practice a works-based relationship with God. They view their good works as away of earning favor with God. They believe that if their good works outweigh their bad works at the end of their lives, God will allow them into heaven.Ephesians 2:8-9, however, says that it is "by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
As you continue to read this message about the Amish and upcoming Amish Awareness Conference, please try to keep in mind the idea that whoever has awareness, in turn, has responsibility!
