Letter from the Editor

His faithfulness knows no bounds. One way to understand fully the vastness of the Lord’s vision is to draw a few lines in the sand along the way when you feel the promptings of the Holy Spirit. As a part of Inspiration Ministries and The Cupbearer Café, sometimes we have to make decisions that we feel the Lord is telling us to make. I am so thankful that He is the one

in control of this ministry. How can we not put our trust in the Giver of every perfect gift and Fulfiller of every vision? To see something which started in my living room grow to include a café, a 3,000 square foot fellowship center, and second floor with classrooms, conference rooms, offices, a library, and a workshop in 15 months is beyond comprehension. To see a newsletter that started at a public library, reaching 75 men, grow to 850 in 14 issues. To see a worship service grow from 25 to 75 in eight services. We are experiencing answers to prayer daily, and many of those prayers are coming from you. We appreciate your effort in making all of this possible, and your realization that we are in this together because we can’t do this without you.

And just as important is God’s faithfulness behind the walls. It thrills my heart knowing the revival that started with the vision of Inspiration remains. At Quincy Annex, FL a GED program built on a foundation of prayer four years ago is still turning out hundreds of diplomas. My little brother, Anthony Ponds, the president of the ACC, continues his pursuit to reach the lost and teach God’s word. Men like James Summers, James Rogers, and Kenneth Thurman have been a part of this cause for Christ to love others in the name of Jesus. At Franklin, FL Chris Bachmann is entrenched in discipling men of God about the promises of God and the work of the Holy Spirit. There are many others at work for the Lord, and we want you to know that you have our prayers and support.

What is important for us to understand is that these two moves of God are not separate, but together. They are on a collision course for an upper-room, Spirit-filled, Bible-based revival that is going to spark the hearts of every generation and save souls from the deepest pits. The presence of God will be so tangible that folks will come from far and wide to experience the outpouring of His Spirit. Pray, Saints; please pray that we will unify our efforts to see the Kingdom of God manifest itself on both sides of the wall. The Lord inhabits the praises of His people, so let us be found with a song in our mouth and His Word written on our hearts. Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus!

Inspired and blessed,

Andrew L. Foster
