LIFE IS TOO SHORT!

"Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.” –Matthew 24:42 "

Por tanto, velen (estén alerta), porque no saben en qué día viene su Señor. Veillez donc; car vous ne savez pas à quelle heure votre Seigneur vient.

Darum wachet, denn ihr wisset nicht, welche Stunde euer HERR kommen wird.

“Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” --Matthew 24

I have been offering local, regional, national and international retreat work for over 16 years and I have come to the conclusion that people need to hear the gospel proclaimed to them through the experiences and stories of others who have encountered Christ along the way.

MY MINISTRY IS TO COME TO YOU AND SHARE THIS GOSPEL ACCOUNT; THIS MESSAGE OF HEALING HOPE FOR OUR WORLD; A WORLD OF FEAR AND ANGER; OF MISTRUST AND A MISGUIDED SENSE OF DIRECTION. BRING ME TO YOUR CHURCH, ORGANIZATION, SUPPORT GROUPS, YOUTH GROUPS, TO HELP:

  • MOTIVATE
  • COORDINATE
  • REJUVENATE

Jesus told the crowd a parable, "There was once a rich man who, having had a good harvest from his land, thought to himself, 'What am I to do? I have not enough room to store my crops.' Then he said, 'This is what I will do: I will pull down my barns and build bigger ones, and store all my grain and my goods in them, and I will say to my soul: My soul, you have plenty of good things laid by for many years to come; take things easy, eat, drink, have a good time.' But God said to him, 'Fool! This very night the demand will be made for your soul; and this hoard of yours, whose will it be then?' So it is when someone stores up treasure for himself instead of becoming rich in the sight of God."
--- Luke 12:16-21

I have been offering missions/ retreats and conferences for over 16 years – all over. I answer email ‘prayer requests’ monthly (see the PRAYER REQUEST FORM on this site) from around the world and I always respond personally to the letters and requests I receive. There are marvelous answers to prayer that that people send back to me as they are touched and moved by the Lord. God is good indeed and His mercy is boundless. I see it daily.

I’ve had offers to come to Pakistan, India, areas in Europe, the Aucklands, Australia, New Guinea and other places—many considered HOTSPOTS--nations in turmoil, confusion and persecution.

NOW IS THE TIME. IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND ARE FROM A FAR OFF COUNTRY IN NEED OF PRAYER, WRITE TO ME. GATHER SOME PEOPLE AND FORM A SMALL PRAYER GROUP, CONTACT YOUR PRIEST, PASTOR, and CHURCH LEADERSHIP – HAVE THE COURAGE AND FORTITUDE TO BRING THIS MESSAGE ‘LIFE IS TOO SHORT” TO YOUR AREA.

IF YOU ARE LOCALLY IN THE UNITED STATES, PRAY FIRST, THEN PRESENT THIS INFORMATION AND SITE www.atwe.org TO YOUR PASTOR, PASTORAL ASSOCIATE, DRE, OR CHURCH GROUP LEADERSHIP AND REMEMBER

LIFE IS TOO SHORT!


REMEMBER THIS SCRIPTURE?

When evening came, the disciples went to Jesus and said, "This is a lonely place, and time has slipped by; so send the people away, and they can go to the villages to buy themselves some food." Jesus replied, "There is no need for them to go: give them something to eat yourselves." But they answered, " All we have with us is five loaves and two fish." So he said, "Bring them here to me." He gave orders that the people were to sit down on the grass; then he took the five loaves and the two fish, raised his eyes to heaven and said the blessing. And breaking the loaves he handed them to his disciples, who gave them to the crowds. They all ate as much as they wanted, and they collected the scraps left over, twelve baskets full. Now about five thousand men had eaten, to say nothing of women and children.
--Matthew 14:15-21

Read through this Gospel account of Jesus’ feeding the 5000 and then you will know why I believe that my COMING TO YOUR GROUP will not only touch your community as Christ did some 2000 years ago, but will bring the added blessings the Lord wishes to share freely and without reservation with you…"He gave orders that the people were to sit down on the grass…"

What have you done lately to INSPIRE, SUPPORT and MOTIVATE your church / organization members outside of the major Seasonal (i.e., Lent, Easter, Advent, Christmas) programming you’ve offered? What have you done to get you or your group one step closer to the life of faith that they desire? Dreaming, hoping and wishing are great, but what ACTION have you taken toward your goal? What is working and not working?

Experience this 3-day MISSION/ RETREAT CONFERENCE/ WORKSHOP entitled:

LIFE IS TOO SHORT!

During this 36 hours you’ll discover CONCEPTS that when put into practice will unlock your potential to have the courage to share the gospel – to be that witness for Christ -- as a Catholic, as a Christian in today’s world of mixed messages, false beliefs and practices.

BRING THIS MESSAGE OF HEALING HOPE TO YOUR CHURCH, ORGANIZATION AT ANY TIME OF THE YEAR. SCHEDULE ME TODAY!
