New Vision News
March 1, 2017
Hello, and welcome to New Vision Ministries' newsletter! My husband Timothy and I believe that even though we are all disabled by sin, Jesus Christ enables us to do anything according to His will. Thank you for reading our quarterly letter, and thank you
so much for supporting us as we continue to reach out to others.
Chaplain Tim and I continue to update our website (www.mynvm.com). We add a new devotion to our blog every Saturday, and you can read everything we've posted over the past few years in the Blog section of our site. We hope you'll read some of our informative content.
Our nursing-home and care-center business, New Vision Entertainment, continues to go well. On several days each month, Timothy and I visit nursing homes in the Maricopa County, AZ area. I play piano, while Tim serves as my emcee and plays the recorder, a small flute, during a few songs. Sometimes Tim will also deliver a short Bible message, so that we can minister to the residents. Based on the reactions of residents and staff alike, we're doing a pretty good job!
If you know about any nursing homes in Maricopa County, please let us know about them. If not, we'd really appreciate your prayers for the continued success of New Vision Entertainment. Thank you!
Would you like to join one of Tim's Bible studies? Each weekly study is conducted by telephone on a conference line. A new study takes place on Mondays at 5:30 PM Arizona Time. Our audience currently contains a few people from New York, and we go over what the Bible has to teach us about living the Christian life. Each study session lasts about 1 hour. We are currently in 1 Corinthians, Chapter 3.
Instead of a Bible study, would you rather participate in a prayer meeting? A couple months ago, Tim and I started just such a meeting, which is conducted on Tuesdays at the same time (5:30 Arizona time), using the same conference line. Tim will start off each meeting with a short scripture, and then we'll tell God what we're thankful for and bring our needs to Him in prayer. We hope you'll join us and add your own contributions to these meetings.
If you'd like to join either the Bible study or prayer meeting, please call our conference line number (712-775-7031, meeting ID 607518748). We hope to see you there!
Would you like to become a prayer partner with us? If you'd like to help us pray for others, or you would like to involve your church or another Christian organization in New Vision Ministries, please send an email to email@example.com.
And now, for our featured article! This month we're including a Christian testimonial written by a good friend of ours. I'll let Tim's introduction tell you a bit more about him.
Hello, and thanks for reading our newsletter! The testimony you are about to read was written by a friend of ours, Scott Couch. He shares his faith with Muslims at ASU, and he also witnesses door-to-door. Besides these and other evangelistic activities, Scott picks Stephanie and I up every third Monday and takes us to a local nursing home, where we visit and minister to residents in their rooms. I hope that his testimony will both strengthen and encourage you.
"I got saved back in 1976, when I was about 18 years old. The seeds were first planted when I heard the word of God on a Christian radio program.
In my early twenties, the Lord gave me the heart for evangelism and apologetics. Every Saturday night I would listen to the late Dr. Walter Martin, known as the Bible Answer Man, on a call-in radio show.
I attended church in southern California for many years. Our church had a witnessing team that would travel the streets, the cities, the beaches and Hollywood on Friday nights, passing out gospel tracts.
I have been married for 27 years, and we have been blessed with two sons, two daughters and two grandsons. My family and I moved out to Mesa, AZ in July of 2013. The Lord has blessed us with a great church body and solid Bible teaching.
Our outreach currently is door-to-door evangelism. We also witness to Muslims at the mosque in Tempe, and we also enjoy sharing the love of Christ at a rehab/convalescent home.
Lord Bless, Scott Couch
