June, Issue 5

Letter from the Editor

I bring blessings and greetings in the name of Jesus Christ this Friday afternoon from The Cupbearer Café here in Auburn, Indiana. I have to admit that this is pretty awesome; I’m finishing the fifth edition of the Inspiration newsletter while we eady for this weekend. We have live music the next two nights. These nights are filled with worship, fellowship, and confirmation of what the Lord is doing with Inspiration Ministries. We are humbled to be a part of the move of God here in this community.

      Our devotions each day, along with our A.C.C. wall, remind us that we have brothers and sisters who cannot be out here to experience The Cupbearer, but that their role for Inspiration is so vital. And nothing is more important than the role the incarcerated church has on the souls of those who find themselves unsatisfied with life and searching for the answer to life’s questions on the other side of the wall. Of course, we know that the love of Jesus Christ is the only thing that is going to bring remedy to the heart that desires to be fulfilled.

      The fact is that every newsletter is our opportunity to boast about the faithfulness of our Heavenly Father. We are so excited to share new reports with you because these blessings are being poured out constantly by a God who is specific about His desires for our lives. Inspiration is chasing after the heart of God which consumes us with the desire to love Him and others with our whole hearts. We pray that you let the Lord Jesus Christ fill you with that same love that cradles you in peace and whispers assurance into your life.

      Our June newsletter contains some fantastic writing from brothers on both sides of the wall. We are so thankful for Christian Pederson’s diligence in seeking the face of God, and his article is filled with inspiration. Our A.C.C. has been hard at work, and we are proud to present some new authors and testimonies. Be encouraged as you read, and let the Holy Spirit minister to you.

      Inspiration is committed to glorifying God in all that we do. Please keep us in prayer as new parts of the ministry are born, and people continue to walk in our doors who are looking for love and acceptance. Until next month, always remember that we love you, and we are here for you. Be blessed in all that you do in the name above all names, Christ Jesus our King, Lord, Savior, and Best Friend. Oh, praise Him, Saints. Hallelujah!

Be inspired knowing that we are in this together,

Andrew L. Foster
