a MAN FROM the philippines said that Exchange Your Worries for God's Perfect Peace helped him to walk by faith in God in the midst of uncertainty. Jonas Pegas said, “Uncertainty is around me every day. Your wonderful book, Exchange Your Worries for God's Perfect Peace, has helped me to walk by faith, not by sight. I don’t know what is going to happen in the rest of the world, but as for my world, I will apply the great faith that I found in this book. My wife is reading the book now and I am encouraged as I see her learning the truths that I found in this book. Thank you so much.”

COMMENTS FROM JACK HARTMAN
A progress report on our next book. Judy and I continue to work steadily on our nineteenth Christian book that will be titled Victory Over Adversity. We believe that God’s perfect timing is working in this book because of all of the uncertainty in the world today. This book is filled with hundreds of scriptural instructions and promises pertaining to the victory that Jesus Christ has provided for you. You will be guided step-by-step so that you will know exactly what God's Word instructs you to do whenever you face adversity.
I wrote a book titled Soaring Above the Problems of Life in 1986. Many people have been helped by this book. This new book on coping with adversity includes many additional scriptural concepts that I have learned during the last twenty-two years. This book also includes a great deal of valuable input from Judy who was not co-author of our original book on adversity. We believe that this book will be published in March or April of 2009.
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU HEAR A SIREN? I cannot hear a siren without stopping whatever I am doing to pray immediately for each person who is affected in any way by the reason for that siren. For many years I have prayed every time I heard a siren.
A siren is a clear indication that someone is in trouble. The Bible says that you should help people who are suffering. If you reach out with love and compassion by praying for the hurting person whose pain is signified by a siren, your fervent prayer will help this person (see James 5:16).
about helping us to send books to
We believe that
God has guided us to accomplish this goal. We now are working out the details
of sending books to Edgar Sirucha. Because of some resistance in
We currently are communicating by email with Ed Sirucha. Once we finalize the details, we will ship books to him in a plain envelope with no ministry name. These books will have only our names and our residence address in the return address section of the label.
We are very
focused on sharing the scriptural contents of our books with more people in
pray and ask the Lord if He would have you help us financially to send our publications
Because of the high cost of sending books, we try to send our publications to pastors who often will preach in their churches from the scriptural contents of these books. By doing this we are able to use your contributions to reach as many people as possible with each book that we send. Please pray about becoming a monthly partner with Lamplight Ministries to help us each month to reach out to more needy people all over the world.
COMMENTS FROM JUDY HARTMAN
Beloved Lamplight family,
As we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we are keenly aware of how we as children of God are clearly strangers and simply travelers on this earth. Our home is in heaven. We are remembering that God sent His Son to the earth to live for us and to die for us, so that we could live forever with our Father, with His Son, and with the Holy Spirit. The red color that accompanies Christmas can represent the blood of Jesus Christ that bought for us our home in heaven. Jesus Christ enabled us to communicate with God every moment of our lives.
While people who do not know God are in a panic in these uncertain times, we as God’s children remain in peace. Our certainty is in Jesus Christ. Our lives do not depend on outward circumstances. Jesus Christ is our breath, our very life. We are here for Him to live through us to reveal God’s love through salvation for every person on earth who will come to Him. We are here to announce the coming kingdom where there will be no fear, no sorrow, no tears, no heartbreak and no disappointments. In this kingdom we will experience the heart and character of God: love, joy, peace, longsuffering gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.
I would like to invite you
to express Christ to your circle of influence by blessing your local crisis
pregnancy center. Abortion is a leading cause of death in our nation with 1.2
million abortions a year. We are sending our Scripture cards to a dear lady in
We also are sending Scripture cards to our local crisis pregnancy center. We can all have a part in making a difference in the lives of those who cannot speak for themselves. I invite you to purchase our Scripture cards and take or mail them to your local crisis pregnancy center.
Our book, 100 Years from Today, also would be an excellent salvation tool because it contains Jack’s salvation story and a very simple message of salvation. Give yourself a gift of touching lives who so desperately need to know our Lord Jesus Christ. (Remember that a purchase of five to nine of any publication receives a 40% discount and a purchase of ten or more of any of our publications receives a 50% discount. Our desire is for our publications to reach people who are hungry to know God.)
The same lady who works to save unborn babies wrote: “Thank you both so very much. Your book about eagles, Soaring above the Problems of Life, helped me get through my cancer. It was the scariest-creepiest time of my life. I love you both so much in the Lord!”
A man from
For at least eighteen years
we have received orders from people who serve in the Amway Global
International. Many of these people received Jesus Christ at a worship service
during a convention or meeting. Trust God
for Your Finances was recommended to a lady in
Whether you work in a company or are in business for yourself, whether you are in sales or service, Trust God for Your Finances will make a difference in your life. You can order the book as a set with our Scripture cards, Financial Instructions from God, and the CD or cassette on the same topic.
Starting in 1983 with Trust God for Your Finances and continuing to the present time with What Does God Say?, a handbook for living in Christ, Lamplight books have presented the gospel in a way that is easily understood. Every book draws you into the Bible and places God’s Word inside of you. You know by our low prices and our liberal quantity discounts that our goal is to empty our warehouse.
We invite you to team with us with the goal of sending Lamplight publications to every state and every nation right now. You can order items for family and friends. You can order Scripture cards for your local abortion clinic. You can drop books off at your local library, hospital waiting rooms, and jail or prison chaplain. You can send our books to the missionaries of your church. The books are squirming in their boxes eager to open hearts to Jesus Christ!
We keep receiving emails
from pastors in foreign countries asking when we can send them our
publications. We tell them that we will as soon as funds are available. A
A pastor from
I have a vision of trucks pulling up to our 10 foot by 50 foot office/warehouse and loading books addressed to the nations. We have always operated debt-free. The books are paid for and just waiting to be sentJ Would you like to have a part in sending Lamplight publications to the nations?
We pray that 2009 will be a year of fulfillment and deep joy for you. We pray that God will give you His wisdom, His creativity, His discernment, His habits, and His joy so that you indeed will “prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” (III John 2)
We love you with the love of the Lord,
Jack and Judy Hartman
