Lately here at United Christian Inner-City Ministry we have been hit hard with spiritual warfare. But we know if we were not we would not be doing our jobs as God’s servants.We know that satan gets very scared when he is challenged and we at United Christian Inner-City Ministry are hitting him hard, where it hurts and we know our God has won. He has already won cause satan is going to hell no matter what. But small tribulations from satan; will not stop our warriors and armies from God, to keep on marching in His light and fighting for all the lost souls. Those souls are NOT yours satan and we are here to win them back with all God’s strength and might, we are here to get each and every one of those lost souls over to God’s side and nothing will stop us. Satan you causing Pastor to hurt his back, causing pastor to be in pain, hurting someone’s leg, the breaking down of trucks, the breaking down of vans, car accidents, sicknesses,illnesses,relapses on addictions (a relapse is only a RELAPSE! NOT FAILURE. God picks us up and dusts us off and walks by our-side as we get stronger.) , weird weather, fights down “Under the Bridge”, changing the time for the men to be in at the Rescue Mission, cause we listen to God and when He says go down “Under the Bridge” at a different time then we go at GOD’S time. Satan the trials and tribulations you are putting United Christian Inner-City Ministry through is only making God’s armies and warriors stronger.
King James Version (KJV)
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
22Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
But we also have been blessed with many blessings from God. We needed a Camcorder for the “Under the Bridge” ministry and to film Pastor Mike English’s sermons and we received a wonderful Sony Camcorder from a truck driver out of state to whom donated it to us because he saw our ad on Craigslist, we also got a nice camcorder from a beloved lady here in Roanoke to whom saw the ad before we were able to delete it because the trucker was donating his. God is really working through the people in Roanoke and opening hearts . So now we will be able to film a “specially requested service” and Sunday’s sermons at the same time if needed etc… God is awesome.Also one of the members of the church found it upon themselves to purchase a tripod for the camcorders and that is a true blessing especially for the young lady to whom records the sermons. Now Pastor Mike English will be in one spot. LOL that was a funny ha ha I apologize.
We were also in dire need of a new Video and graphics computer for the woman who does our web site and editing of videos. Praise God after attempting to download a video four times on her old computer she had faith enough to go to Craigslist at 1 am and place an ad for a new computer that was great with videos and graphics. Praise God by 9 am in the morning she had received a reply that a couple was going to donate a computer to United Christian Inner-City Ministry of Roanoke , VA.
Now we are really stepping out in faith looking for a refrigerator truck or box truck to be donated for picking up and delivering all the food that we get donated to us for the families, low income people, homeless, less fortunate etc… We transport the food on a trailer with two box freezers and if we had a truck we could save money on gas and start saving for the house to house Trauma victims and get them into trauma classes before the addictions and alcoholism etc… sets in. God bless (You can actually see a video of this request if you click on “About Gods work” at the top of the page.)
Please we are in need of a Box truck or refrigerater truck for transportation of food that is donated for the less fortunate. Please call Pastor Mike English at: 540-392-6611 or Pastor Frank Broughman at:540-397-3597. Thank you and God bless.
