Greetings from Amsterdam, Netherlands (Holland’s official name).
This is the year-end newsletter of Apologetics Index (and its 'family
of web sites, including Religion News Blog, CultFAQ.org, and more...)
In recent years it has become customary for us to prepare a year-end
newsletter in which we share what has been happening with both our
online and offline ministry. At the time of this writing there’s a snow
storm outside. Inside our cozy home it’s warm. The coffee has made way
for mugs of hot chocolate (made with real cocoa, of course), and Janet
and I have spent a nice evening reminiscing.
Our conclusion: We are happy to report that 2005 has been a year of
tremendous blessings. Just like last year, we have seen growth in every
area of ministry. We’ve seen lives changed for the better - including
those of people who have left cults and abusive churches, as well as
people who never joined up in the first place because of information
found in and via Apologetics Index. Personally we have in many ways
experienced God’s rich blessings.
Sure, there were are few problems as well - including a deterioration
in Janet’s health, negative decisions for some of the refugees we help,
and ad-hominem attacks from an apparently unstable person.
Yet on a daily basis, we experience the truth of God’s Word, which says:
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your
gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about
anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends
all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ
- Philippians 4:4-7
We are also thankful for the support we get from Christians and
non-Christians alike. Janet and I appreciate your thoughts and prayers!
