You can order our publications from our website, from our post office box or the 800 telephone number at the bottom of this page.

A college professor in CHINA said that Unshakable Faith in Almighty God is a hidden treasure. Dr. Eliza Karuthudaiyan said, “I am a professor at a university. I am reaching out to a number of students and lecturers in my department. Your book Unshakable Faith in Almighty God has led me step by step to increase my faith in God. The steps that you explained are very practical and easy to follow. This book is a hidden treasure that helps me to enjoy the presence of God. Thanks for your ministry and vision. I pray that God will multiply what you are doing with Lamplight Ministries so that you will be fruitful in many more lives.”

An inmate in a jail in colorado said that Exchange Your Worries for God's Perfect Peace got her through some bad times. This woman said, “I have been in jail for two months. I found eternal salvation here in jail. I believe that the Lord loves me so much that I was put in jail. I think I would have been dead by now if I was not put here because I was living a very fast and bad life. Now I am enjoying the best time of my life with Jesus. I read your book on peace here in jail. This book got me through some bad times. The guard took the book from me. I am so sad that I don’t have that book any more. I don’t have any money, but I pray that you will send me another copy of this book. Please write to me at the jail. God bless you.” (We have written to this woman and sent her four of our books free of charge.)

A WOMAN FROM the philippines said that her life has been transformed by Exchange Your Worries for God's Perfect Peace. Inez Mantz said, “Our family has attended church regularly for many years and nothing really interesting has happened. Your book, Exchange Your Worries for God's Perfect Peace, has transformed my life. Great peace has come into my life since I read this book. I do not have money enough for rice. Conditions are hard but I never walk through them alone. When I fall back into my old ways I say, ‘No, I will exchange this for God’s peace’ and it works. I am happy to have found such peace. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Hartman.”

A man in china said that God’s wisdom is available to you IS exactly what he needed. Derek DuToit said, “I am a manager of a mining equipment company here in China. Your book titled God’s Wisdom is Available to You is a great book. The instruction in this book is exactly what I need. I really need God’s wisdom because I am in a foreign land. Without God’s wisdom it is not easy for me to make decisions which my Chinese workers can support. My wife and children are waiting to read this book when I finish. May God bless you and your family with all heavenly blessings.”


Our new book is being printed. you can order it now. As we write this newsletter, our printer is putting the final touches on What Does God Say?. I have just reviewed the entire transcript and made the final changes. We expect to have What Does God Say? in our possession early in August.

I am very excited about this book. It essentially contains in one book the essence of most of the other seventeen books we have written. This book will give the reader valuable scriptural information on 94 different topics.

If you would like to enjoy a closer relationship with the Lord so that you can come into His presence, you will receive specific scriptural instructions telling you how to do this. Do you want to know exactly what the Bible teaches about enjoying a long, full and productive live? We believe that many readers will be surprised at the many specific instructions God has given to you in this area.

Do you have a problem with anger? Do you tend to be impatient? Would you like to know how to deal with these areas? We have specific answers for you. This book will give you a thorough, detailed and easy to understand explanation of what the Bible says about prosperity. You will learn how radically different God’s prosperity is from the prosperity of the world.

If you are concerned about the economy and other problems in the world today, our scriptural explanation of how to overcome fear, worry and anxiety will be very helpful to you. Are you afraid of death? The Scripture in our topic titled DEATH will be very encouraging to you.

Would you like to read a clear explanation of exactly what the Bible says about the last days before Jesus Christ returns, the rapture of the Church and the second coming of Christ? We believe that you will be very pleased with our simple and easy to understand explanation of Scripture in this area.

These are just a few examples of the 94 different topics that are contained in this book. This book contains 1,221 verses of Scripture. Each passage of Scripture is preceded by a one paragraph explanation written in simple and easy to understand language. Even though this book is extremely comprehensive, it is simple enough so that an eighth grade student can understand it. We recommend this book to you unconditionally.

As we have shared with you in previous newsletters, ninety-one of the ninety-four topics are arranged alphabetically. However, the first three topics titled HEAVEN, HELL and ETERNAL SALVATION tell the reader what heaven is like, how horrible hell is and exactly what needs to be done to live eternally in heaven and not to suffer in hell throughout eternity. At the bottom of the cover of the book are the words “Please be certain to read pages 25-49 very carefully for facts on the most important decision you will ever make.”

You can give this book to friends, loved ones and acquaintances who do not understand exactly what is required to live in heaven instead of suffering throughout eternity in hell. We believe that many people will receive eternal salvation through Jesus Christ by reading the facts on pages 25-49.

If you would like to order one or more copies of What Does God Say?, please fill out the information on the order form at the end of this newsletter. We will fill your order as soon as we can. We have a number of books to send out first to the people who have contributed toward the cost of the book. All other orders will be filled in the order they are received.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO PASTORS IN Third World countries. We have several pastors from Third World countries who receive our monthly newsletter by email. If you would like to receive a free copy of What Does God Say?, please send us an email agreeing that you will preach in your church from the first part of this book that explains heaven, hell and eternal salvation. Also, please agree with us that you will send us results of what happens when you preach these scriptural facts. If you agree to this, please send us your mailing address and we will airmail you a free copy of this book

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO people in foreign countries who have previously given us comments on our books. We have several people in foreign countries who have commented on our books. We have used their comments in our newsletters. We are grateful to each of you for taking the time to send us your comments. If you will email me with your name and mailing address, we will airmail you a free copy of What Does God Say?.


Dear Lamplight family,

You are so precious to me. I thank God for each one of you. How I would enjoy sitting together and just exchanging what is important to each of us. So, I will speak to you as if we are sitting down and having a glass of lemonade (lemon and honeyJ).

Our trash reveals my conviction to clear away anything that is not of value. Bags of papers that I have gone through to glean gems are piled on the curb. One gem was to see notes and the phone number of a dear man whose ministry is dedicated to Ukraine. I called him and asked him if he might be interested in financing the reprinting of Trust God for Your Finances in Russian and have them distributed in Ukraine. He has a man who wants to underwrite this project. I put my friend in touch with Pastor Victor Petrenko in Ukraine whom I met while we both attended The River Bible Institute in Tampa. Together these two saints of God will spread the gospel in Ukraine through Trust God for Your Finances.

We find repeatedly that Trust God for Your Finances is written and translates into very easy to understand language. The principles are so simple and easy to follow when we grasp what God instructs us to do. People in India, Zambia, Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, China, and the Philippines, to name a few, are being set free to live in victory in Christ Jesus regardless of what is happening in the economy of their nation. We must live with the same strong faith of those who have very little because we do not know when our very comfortable lifestyle may be modified or changed dramatically. “We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.” (Romans 8:28 amp)

We received a donation from someone who gave to a foundation which in turn sent us a check. I called the foundation to say thank you so very much. As I spoke with the lady, I began to realize that this foundation is exactly the answer to my seeking help in presenting to you many different ways that you can give to Lamplight. I had talked with Prepaid Legal just last week inquiring into this matter. The lady said that there is an office of the foundation in Tampa. I told her that my longtime friend is associated with a similar foundation. She looked up his name and it is the same foundation!

I will be discussing with my friend how to set up Lamplight Ministries, Inc. as a ministry to receive donations through this foundation. There are so many ways to give to the gospel in addition to finances. We have received requests for automatic withdrawals from personal bank accounts which is part of what this foundation provides. The income tax deduction will be the same. I am so excited to be able to present to you these opportunities. We will be associated with a long standing- organization with experts of excellence in each field of giving. God is answering my desires so wondrously.

Have you checked out my information about health on our website?  I will be updating it regularly as I continue to study health as I have for forty-eight years since I was twenty-one. My goal is to help people live in vibrant health until their very last breathJ

Translations of our books soon will be placed on our website. We will add more each month. Our out of print books will be available free of charge on our website: Deep Inner Peace, Soaring Above the Problems of Life, and Strong Faith for the Last Days. We have copies of Strong Faith in German. Please let us know if you have any German speaking people to whom you would like us to send a copy. The Spanish paraphrase of Trust God for Your Finances by Dick Maxwell will be placed on our website for free as well.

We invite you to visit our website to see the announcement of our new book. We would be so pleased for you to make a comment on our website about how our books have blessed your life. You will bless others and increase the value of our websiteJ

Blessed to be a blessing (Genesis 12:1-3),

Jack and Judy Hartman
