March 2005 Newsletter

Dear family and friends of The Narrow Way Ministry,

Spring is on its way here in the Ozark Mountains. Daffodils are in full bloom and we’ve been having some really nice, moderate weather. I want to share with you, however, some thoughts about recent events that have once again given evidence of the perilous times in which we live. God is certainly attempting to arouse his Laodicean people out of our stupor.

(See Featured Articles — “Two Hands Revealed”)

India & The Narrow Way Ministry: You may recall in our last newsletter the story about an invitation for me to conduct an evangelistic series by the Director for Evangelism in India. All expenses would be covered while in India, but I would need to raise the $2,000.00 round trip airfare.

India is a country of around 1 Billion in population, and it seems to be wide open right now to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thousands upon thousands of Hindus are turning from their heathen ways and giving their hearts to Jesus Christ, bringing to my mind His own words, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:37,38)

To those of you who have responded in the interest of helping me with that airfare I want to say, Thank You! In fact, with your help we now have the funds to provide me a one-way ticket to New Delhi…! But I really need to be able to get back home! A round-trip ticket is preferred.

So, I continue with this appeal for the balance of the funds needed to make this evangelistic venture become a reality. And I ask that you pray about it to see if the Lord might want to use you to assist in this opportunity.

Radio Ministry: On November 10, 2004, we had a power supply melt down with our transmitter that put us off the air for the major portion of our listening audience for over 8 weeks. We had no choice but to order a new transmitter, wait to have it built and shipped and installed, putting us back on the air at full power on January the 6th.

This setback required the refinancing of our station to accommodate an expense of $31,000. But we praise the Lord that our radio ministry once again continues to broadcast the 3 Angels’ Messages 7 days a week, night and day, over a radius of up to 80 miles all around Marshall in north central Arkansas, only now with a much more reliable transmitter and with a better signal.

We continue to seek sponsorship and support for these vital radio broadcasts and are very grateful to those of you who are assisting in this evangelistic branch of our ministry. Perhaps someone else would like to adopt a program, or a fraction of one, on a monthly basis. We would be delighted with your participation.

Needing sponsorship are the following:

Amazing Facts, Joe Crews, $75.00 per week.

Amazing Facts, Bible Answers Live, Doug Batchelor, $300.00 per week.

Bible Talk with Gary Gibbs & John Bradshaw, $30.00 per week.

Freedom’s Ring with Alan Reinach, from the North American Religious Liberty Dept., $15.00 per week.

Your Story Hour, $60.00 per week

Breath of Life, Walter Pearson, $30.00 per week.

Millennium of Prophecy, Doug Batchelor, $30.00 per week.

Please keep this branch of ministry in your prayers.

Romania: The Bible Worker program and Pastor Jenci remain very dependent upon support coming through The Narrow Way Ministry for their continued ability to carry on the work of lay evangelism and church planting in the unentered towns and villages of Transylvania. The everlasting gospel must be preached “to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.” “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” (Revelation 14:6; Matthew 24:14)

Please do not forget these dedicated workers in your prayers and support. And we want to express our sincere gratitude to those of you who consistently offer your assistance to this ongoing evangelistic endeavor.

CDs & Books: Since our last newsletter we have produced the new “Classic Gospel Mem’ries”, another CD and Tape project featuring the Marimba, orchestrated this time with a little Ozark Mountain Country flavor. Our first project, “A Perfect Day”, continues to be well received.

If you haven’t gotten your copies yet, please contact us, and we’ll send them right out. “Mem’ries” is $16.00 CD, $12.00 Tape, plus $2.00 S&H. “A Perfect Day” is $15.00 CD, $12.00 Tape, plus $2.00 S&H.

Another exciting bit of news is regarding my book, “That Kind Can Never Change! Can They…?”. A reader from Puerto Rico contacted me expressing his excitement over having found this book. He read it and found it to parallel his own life and conversion several years ago. He spoke of the great need for this book to be in the Spanish language and offered to translate it at no charge, “To the glory of God,” he said.

Mario is a concert pianist and was working on his masters degree in education at the time. This project is now nearing completion and will be published this Spring by Remnant Publications and will be available for distribution before the General Conference Session in June.

The feedback we receive from this book continues to increase, as does that from my Web Site ministry, And I praise the Lord that he can use my converted past to help other “unchangeables” find the path to victory in their lives as well.

The Narrow Way Ministry in Music and Message: Since our last newsletter, the Woolsey family, (The Narrow Way Ministry), has been traveling extensively with our message and music ministry. Revelation 12:11 tells us that we overcome the accuser of the brethren, Satan, “by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of [our] testimony…” It is spiritually invigorating for me to take every opportunity to share with others the miraculous working of the Lord in my life and in that of my family. The summary of our message is that our God is might to save, the “whosoevers”, from “whatsoever”, even “to the uttermost.”

We have really enjoyed these occasions, most recently in numerous locations in Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Florida, and Georgia.

Presently, we are involved with our local church in Marshall, AR hosting the “Prophecy Code Seminar”; a live satellite feed evangelistic series with Doug Batchelor, director and speaker for Amazing Facts. We have a number of people from the community attending, for which we are excited. And we pray that there will be a harvest of souls resulting from the years of seed planting in this community and the effort now going on.

Immediately after the seminar, April 7, we will be heading to 3ABN for filming with the marimba and the music from our 2 CDs, “A Perfect Day” and “Classic Gospel Mem’ries.” From there we will be traveling to Olive Branch, Mississippi for Sabbath message and music on April 9, and to Joplin, Missouri for the same the next Sabbath, April 16. We are also scheduled for filming with “Safe TV” sometime in May.

We continue to thank the Lord for the opportunities that are opening up for us to witness for Him, to do our little part in the worldwide work of carrying the gospel to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. For we overcome the accuser of our brethren, (Satan), “by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of [our] testimony.” (Rev. 12:11)

If you are interested in our visiting your area, please contact us by phone, fax, email, or snail mail. We would be happy to make arrangements to come to your church to share God’s Word through message, music and testimony.

May God continue to bless and keep you,

Ron Woolsey
