Lufkin – January 2017

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”   John 1:1

     Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”   Luke 2:8-11

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”

Revelation 22:13

     Phones were ringing not bells. The callers were inquiring the number of folks at GODTEL and did we have any children residing here. The response was so amazing and generous. Canned goods came in from Mustang CAT. The boxes filled with cans kept coming through the door-maybe they should have used one of their big CATS for the delivery. They are a small church with precious older saints and yet they brought a box of canned goods to GODTEL each month this past year. And December was no different. Thank you Hillcrest Baptist Church for your faithful giving. The Lone Star 4-H gathered a variety of suggested items for the gift bags that would be distributed at Christmas. Abeldt’s Pharmacy added to the gift items. The Pioneer Club of Believers Bible Church decorated the grocery sacks that were filled with the gifts that came in from all directions. Young Kyra told her mother that she did not want people to be cold this winter. She had a blanket drive and brought many quilts and blankets to GODTEL to use and hand out to those in need. Another young girl brought toys to share with any little ones who were here. Thank you, Lord, for young thoughtful and giving hearts. The holiday tradition continues. The two guest cook groups from the First United Methodist Church, once again, joined forces and presented us with a Christmas dinner. Our hosts sent their heavenly coach to pick us up. It only took two trips for all of our folks to be a part of the Jesus celebration. We were welcomed and invited to sit at one of the festive tables. A short devotional was presented. And then a blessing was said. And the rest is history... Delicious brisket and sides were served and eaten with delightful anticipation. Pumpkin pie was for dessert. That is a favorite of mine. No one was disappointed and if any one left hungry it was of their own doing. Christmas dinner can only be complete with Christmas songs. This year we were entertained by four women from the church. Several lovely songs filled the air before we all added our voices in singing Christmas carols. One of the songs we heard was Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah-Christmas words. It wasn’t long before Martin had the words and music to this song. He was touched by the words and message of the song. And now, at different times of the day, we hear the sound of music coming from Martin and his guitar. The fellowship continued with the passing out of gifts. We enjoyed watching the two school girls open gifts especially bought and wrapped for them. The evening came to an end. We boarded the heavenly coach, once again, for the drive home. It was a wonderful night. Thank you, dear brothers and sisters in the Lord. While we were out for the evening “poor Joseph” stayed home. No, he was not sick nor in “time out”. When we arrived home we saw the Christmas tree. The MOPS (mothers of pre-schoolers) ladies came in like Santa’s helpful elves and put the tree up and decorated it. The lights and ornaments and tinsel brightened up the big room. Could the evening get any more blessed?! Thank you to the Willing Workers and Victory Sunday School Classes at Calvary Baptist Church for providing the ingredients for our Christmas breakfast. Eggs were provided by our own hens. The menu included biscuits, eggs, ham, bacon, sausage, hash browns (smashed tater tots), fresh fruit, milk, orange juice, jelly and cinnamon bread sticks. Preparation began at 8:00 am. We had volunteers from all over the county. The work began. Eggs were fried. The bacon, ham and sausage were close behind. Apples, oranges and bananas were cut and put together in a fruit salad. The biscuits were placed on a big tray and heated up. It all came together at 10:00 am. Time to ring the bell. Martin shared a Bible study with us. He gave the blessing. The total of all who had a part in the day is 54: 30 residents, 12 guests and 12 volunteers. Teresa from the Texas Veterans Commission came early Christmas day bearing gift bags full of all sorts of goodies. She has a big heart for our veterans and others who are in need. Our son drove up from Nederland to spend the day. A blessing, indeed. We set out sandwich fixing's for any who were hungry later in the day. No complaining was heard. Well, maybe a groan or two because we fell into the sin of gluttony. Later that evening I was called to the women’s dorm. Our pregnant girl went into labor. An ambulance came and got the poor laboring girl. And off to the hospital they went. Tamesha’s baby girl was born. Both are healthy and doing fine. The decision was made that it would be better for Tamesha and her daughter to live with her grandma. She will get more attention and care there which she needs at this time. Randy and his family bought and brought Bibles to GODTEL. His desire is to see that any resident who desires to learn more about the Lord and walk closer to Him will be armed with the Truth from His word. Thank you, Randy. We, at GODTEL, also desire to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to all who come through our doors this new year. This is not a new resolution-it is the faithfulness of God towards this ministry for over 40 years and we will be here at the spiritual front line as long as He wants us here.

     We thank you for 2016 and look forward to 2017.

     PRAISE HIM FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW. PRAISE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST.

Because of Him we serve,

Nacogdoches/Livingston – January 2017

Want a Blessed/Happy New Year?

        In the Holy Bible, God has made over a thousand promises, just waiting for us to meet God’s conditions (Matthew 6:33). Many of the promises take the form of an “if/then” statement. God says “if” we will do what He says, “then” He will bless us. Or, “if” we do not comply with His instructions, “then” He will punish us with unpleasant consequences. We need to understand, however, that this does not work the other way around. We cannot bargain with God, telling Him that if He will do something for us, then we will do something for Him. He is the Creator; we are a part of His creation. (He is the potter, we are the clay.) He is the Ruler; we are His subjects. He is the Judge; we are at His mercy. He is the Savior of those who repent (do an “about face” and are willing to turn away from their choices to break His laws) and submit to His authority (choosing to follow His orders—simply to do what He says, as a soldier would say to his commanding officer, “Yes, Sir,” and diligently carry out his orders); we need Him to forgive and rescue (save) us from an eternity of suffering. God has proved His love for us by providing salvation, and though He loves us, He does not need us, so we are in no position to bargain with Him. One of my favorite passages of Scripture is Psalm 84:11, “For the Lord God is a sun and shield, the Lord will give grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.” This is an assurance that those who obey Him in thought, word, and action, being doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving themselves (James 1:22), will have nothing good withheld from them. Of course, that does not mean we will get everything we want, because sometimes what we want is not good for us. We are soldiers, after all, in a spiritual war. Then there is the promise in Psalm 37:4 that if we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our heart. Bro. June often quotes this verse and asks, “If you are truly delighting yourself in the Lord, what is the desire of your heart?” The answer: “Jesus, and to be more like Him.” So, if you want to be blessed this new year, choose to do what God’s Word tells you to do (obey/walk uprightly), and you will be blessed. It’s a promise! As I was writing this, I received a call from W.F., a young man who stayed at our Nacogdoches mission for several months back in 1998. He had been thinking about his past and as he thought about GODTEL he decided to give us a call, thank us for our help, and wish us a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. He had come to us from prison and said the structure of life at GODTEL (which includes two Bible studies daily) helped him begin to turn his life around. After leaving us, he drove trucks for awhile, had various odd jobs, and then established a lawn service which he operated for three years, until the oil industry laid so many men off who began to mow lawns to survive. Now he has only a few customers left so he is looking for work again. I told him his call had cheered up my day and that I was so glad we were here and able to help him all those years ago. He is living in West Texas, is married and has a son. He and his family faithfully attend church in Odessa. I am sure they would appreciate your prayers.

How Can We Say Thanks

The Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons at each of our three missions were so abundantly blessed by so many different individuals, groups, Sunday School Classes, Churches, schools, and businesses that we do not have the room to list them all. Some of the gifts were of volunteer service; collections of food items; a welcome shipment of 25 new towels; a collection of 71 coats and 26 blankets from a school group; beef, turkeys, and hams (which helped supplement the greatly-appreciated frequent donations of chicken from Tyson Foods and Pilgrim’s Pride); a bucket of coins (containing over $300.00); a large donation of personal hygiene items; freshly-baked pies; candies; cookies; entire meals prepared and served; Christmas gifts for our residents including some new shoes and enough neck scarves for everyone; boxes of socks from school “Socktober” collections (at all three missions); snack packets with bottled water; pizza; soft drinks (from the Coca-Cola Bottling Co.); and a variety of other items to help stretch our operating budget, brighten our days, and demonstrate God’s love for us. Our Christmas meals fed over 170 grateful people. For this and for your support throughout the year we offer sincere, heart-felt thanks to each of you who joined with us in this ministry. May God bless you.

The Year Ahead

We pray that you will have a year of spiritual growth that will bring you closer to Jesus. The Jewish Feast of Trumpets will be celebrated September 20-22, 2017. Many Bible scholars believe Jesus will return during this feast (when the last trumpet shall sound). Since the 1980’s I have been excited and hopeful as each year’s Feast of Trumpets draws near (and deeply disappointed when it has passed and we are still here). 2017 could be the God-appointed year. If you are not ready to meet God in judgment, I pray you will give Him your life and let Him live in you—today.

     We have so much to be thankful for every day of the year at GODTEL. This month we were blessed with canned goods from the Inez Tims Apartments. Burley Elementary School, also, gathered canned goods to help the homeless and poor of Lufkin. And Central Junior High School participated in the Sock-tober event. For a month that was so busy it is hard to remember what went on. Oh yea-life. Dolores (our faithful cook) took a well earned break for a week. She is a history buff and enjoys searching and visiting historical sites. She, also, enjoys strolling the mall and taking in a movie or two. Jessica stepped into the kitchen for KP duty. She did a great job. We will miss her. She and her beau moved out at the end of the month to a place of their own. This is the third time Tamisha has stayed at GODTEL. Two years have passed since she was here last. This time she came pregnant. Her due date is December 26th. This is her first child. Christi and I smile knowing the joy this precious life will give to her life. And we feel the heartache knowing the rough road this single mother will have to travel. Tamesha is plugged into many helpful resources, but most of them will not start until she has the baby. She has already received diapers and baby clothes and all sort of helpful mothering advise. She has a baby bed and blankets and a car seat to bring the baby home. Oh-wait-did you ask what she is having? A baby, of course. A baby girl. Pray for Tamesha and baby girl, Betty Delilah, as they enter this new chapter of mother and daughter adventures. September, Socktober, November, December. What did I say?! Apparently at Central Junior High the month in question is October or Socktober. When GODTEL was blessed with the delivery of boxes full of socks-all colors and sizes-we were told that it was Sock-tober because socks were donated by the students to help those in need. This is not the first time these students have done this. However, it is the first time we have been the blessed receivers of the sock drive. I just love the “sock”tober moniker, but then it does not take much to put a smile on my face with new and fancy words. Thank you, Central Junior High, from the top of our heads to the bottom of our very warm and comfortable feet. There was the office faux pas when I ran out of toner for the printer and did not have any backup in the supply room. With Nancy’s guidance I e-mailed the Lufkin newsletter to her and she printed the newsletter for me and I was able to get it out on time. Well, I ordered more toner. I have one in the machine and two on the shelf. Notes are everywhere to remind me to order when I install the last toner. But, alas, I have no excuse for the tardiness of this month’s news. Thanksgiving Day stayed the same on the calendar. Wednesday evening, after the meal, the ladies from Alpha Beta Chi came and decorated the big room. As usual, the plain room was transformed from the everyday use to the grand celebration hall for thankful hearts the next day. The grand total of participants was 45. That included residents, guests and volunteers. And our fearless leader, Bro. June Gentry and his wife, Nancy. At 2:00 pm the bell rang. Roll call was taken and the Bible study was presented by Bro. June. The blessing was given. Soon the dinner plates were filled with all sorts of Thanksgiving goodies destined to cause all sorts of sinful gluttony. Don’t forget the desserts-oh my! Enough said. It was a pleasant day with a delicious meal and great fellowship. And a long nap. Black Friday is a day marked on my calendar with a big red heart. I was invited and accepted the invitation to go to Dallas to help with Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. The group I was with was led by a family friend. He drove the 11 of us volunteers knowing exactly where he was going. We drove up and found a parking place right away. We unloaded ourselves and the beverage and food containers. We entered the big warehouse, already noisy and full of busy activity. After we were checked in name tags were handed to us. We had a short video welcome from Franklin Graham and a brief video about what we would be doing with all these “shoe boxes”. Each line was set up the same. Each spot had its own job. And there were two sides of the line. My first job was to check for money. If I found some I was to put it in the slotted box in front of me. The box was then passed to the next person. Later I moved to the end of the line where I put the inspected, taped and prayed over boxes in the appropriately labeled shipping box. Several times during our five hour shift the work stopped. At this time announcements were made, stories were shared about the impact one box had made in the lives of children all over the world. And before the work started back we put our hands on a box and a prayer was said. The drive home was quiet. Some of the young servants were sleeping and the rest of us talked quietly. This may sound illogical-to me it was a “be still and know” experience. If you have an opportunity to participate in this project I would highly recommend it. This year the Christmas boxes are going to The Dominican Republic and Honduras. It was a perfect day. We entered the big warehouse, already noisy and full of busy activity.

Nacogdoches/Livingston – December 2016

 

What Will You Give God this Christmas?

        God desires our love, trust, and obedience (James 1:22)—not just on Christmas, but every moment of every day of every year. He even commands that we love Him above all things—even ourselves—and that we love others as much as we love ourselves. The wonderful and beautiful thing about those commands is that He will supply the power to do what He has commanded once we make the choice to obey. During one Sunday School Class Christmas party back in the 1970s, our very godly teacher, Dan Ann Morgan, asked us ladies to write down on a piece of paper what we would give God that year. Different ones wrote what I considered “nice” things, so I was a little embarrassed when my intended gift was read. You see, I was giving God my red-headed bad temper. No one said anything so I hope they understood my intention was to let go of it because it surely did not honor and glorify my Savior. Of course, it did not really matter if others were either horrified at the thought or sympathetic. It only mattered what God thought, rather, what He knew. This past Lent Season I was blessed by my daughter, Joann, who was teaching her two precious children about the resurrection and lent. When asked what they would be willing to give up for Jesus, they each gave up something very dear to themselves. She was so touched by this, she decided to give up something she enjoyed and was giving much time and attention to—Facebook. She said it was difficult at first but before long she actually felt a certain kind of freedom. Now, she checks her account occasionally but is not “addicted” to it as she had been. I think it would be good for each of us to check our lives and see what is most important to us. If we are not seeking God and His Kingdom first and foremost (Matthew 6:33), we need to make a change. There was a time in my life when I was so busy I just did not have time to read the Bible as I previously had been doing. One day in prayer, God let me know that if I did not have time to read His Word, letting Him speak to me afresh from its pages, I certainly did not have the time to read a newspaper, a magazine, or watch television—things produced by mere mortal men. I then had a choice to make and I chose to no longer read anything unless I had spent time in God’s Word. It was amazing that when I made it a priority, I had the time to get it done. Perhaps this Christmas we should all give God more of the coming year’s time in Bible reading, prayer, and service. He is worthy, He will be pleased, and we will be benefitting ourselves.

Notes from NAC

We moved into our new quarters at 1902 Douglass Road on November 1st, had a dedication service of the new building on the 13th, a ribbon-cutting on the 16th, and enjoyed our first Thanksgiving there. We were greatly blessed to see so many dear Christian friends and supporters at the dedication. They brought with them a sweet spirit which filled the chapel. (Our volunteer in charge of our Christian Help Center where we give away clothing, Jackie Haley, posted a video of the dedication on her Facebook page.) Many Nacogdoches dignitaries attended the ribbon cutting including two men representing the Charles and Lois Marie Bright Foundation whose Board had granted GODTEL the necessary funding to construct the new facility. Donna McCollum, from KTRE-TV, was there and by going to their web-site you can see video and a story about the ribbon-cutting festivities. The Nacogdoches Chamber of Commerce web site has a link to many photos taken that day as well. What a blessing to share Thanksgiving day with more than 20 volunteers serving our residents and guests. There were other volunteers, though somewhat behind-the-scenes, who provided delicious desserts, tea, ice, vegetables (including one fantastic sweet potato dish), turkeys and ham. By the end of the day, our hearts were as full of thanks and blessings as our tummies were full of food. Our sincere and abundant thanks to each one of you who had a part in making this a very memorable day not only in Nacogdoches, but at each of our three locations where we also enjoyed the generosity of others.

Lines from LIV

The week before Thanksgiving, we received a call from the Polk County Sheriff’s Department. It seems that four of the deputies had taken ten smoked turkeys “into custody” and wanted to bring them to GODTEL. When the four sheriff’s vehicles drove up, it looked like GODTEL was being raided rather than being the recipient of such a thoughtful and delicious gift. We had a delightful visit with the officers and were blessed by their caring attitudes. We had plenty of turkeys for Thanksgiving and enough left over to be served at our community meal on Christmas Eve or Christmas day. You are welcome to join us at one of our missions. For details, please call the mission of your choice. Phone numbers and addresses are listed below.

A Joyous Christmas

We pray that each of you will have a peaceful, joyous, and meaningful celebration of the birth of our Savior. Be sure to realize that Jesus is the reason for the season and keep Christ at the center of your celebrations. As 2016 comes to an end, we praise God for His faithfulness and thank our supporters for your obedience to God.

     GODTEL was on the road again this past month. The first Sunday Martin visited First Baptist Church. GODTEL was invited to be part of their “Called” event. Tables were set up of different ministries in town as well as Baptist ministries. The representatives attended the morning worship service. After that, a meal was served and folks visited the different ministry tables in between bites. Martin had a wonderful time.

     Next stop on the road was a Saturday at Carpenter’s Way Church. A youth weekend was going on and we were, once again, sharing about GODTEL. Homelessness is not a popular subject with young people but there were questions asked and literature given away to those who stopped at our table. We enjoy going out and meeting new people and sharing what God is doing at GODTEL.

     We continued our road trip to a Fall Resource Fair put on by Child Protective Services hosted by Southside Baptist Church. It was a Wednesday morning when Christi and I loaded the Windstar with our pamphlets, newsletters and display board to join the other agencies and ministries in a fact swapping mission. And boy did we swap. We brought home brochures and pamphlets and handouts of all kinds to help our residents in time of need. Christi has organized and put this information in two loose leaf notebooks. They are parked on Christi’s desk. Thank you, Christi, for helping us to be more efficient.

     Our guest cooks did not fall down on the job. October meals included sloppy joes, chicken spaghetti, pork chops, pizza, baked chicken with rice, another helping of baked chicken with mashed potatoes and taco soup. All delicious and yummy to eat. Ole!

     From time to time Martin and I reminisce the early years at Lufkin GODTEL. One day in September I got a call from Pam (she had stayed here back in the 1990’s). She called to say that she was coming to Lufkin after living in Tennessee for twenty years. She has two brothers who live here and it was time to come for a visit. She asked if she could come by GODTEL for a visit. Of course I said yes. It is always encouraging to see and hear from folks who have come through our doors no matter how long (or short) ago it was.

     The day arrived. Pam’s brother drove her to GODTEL. We had quite a time catching up on each other’s news. We talked about the “new buildings”. We ate lunch in the big room. We talked about what God has been doing in our lives. We talked about football. We shared opinions on political issues and candidates. We talked about the election and working the poles. She shared how her husband was at her side when she was very ill. How loving and patient and attentive he was while she could do nothing for herself. And how good God is. I hope it isn’t another twenty years before Pam’s next trip to Texas and Lufkin.

     The Name Game-we had 3 Christopher’s. Perry first name and Perry last name. Fruits weighed in with Berry and Appleman hoping for no Rash and lots of Grace. Two Jones’, not related. We got no guff from Goff and had enough Kash to buy some Kahle. We end with Robert Lewis but no Stevenson.

     Chris started working with an electrical company early in the month. Laura works at Cybershield. Chelsea is still working at Pilot. We get excited when people are working.

     Beulah was left on our doorstep late Sunday evening. She just wanted to go home. We tried to find a family member to come pick her up. She couldn’t remember any phone numbers. We called the police to see if there was a missing person’s report. No, she was not missing. The next morning we called the police again. Then we called Adult Protective Services. She was in their system. Before a caseworker could get here she left. It is heartbreaking. We did what we could. APS did what they could. Beulah needs our prayers.

     Jessica changed hats. This week she is in the kitchen while Dolores is on a much earned vacation. Cheryl has stepped into the laundry room to wash the residents’clothes.

     Trevor is waiting on a start date for his job at United Parcel Service so he has been helping around here. He has even practiced welding which he went to school to learn.

     As usual, some residents had to move out because they broke the rules. The use of alcohol and drugs are the main reasons people are told to leave. Several moved out upon receiving their checks. One man moved out because he had saved enough from his paychecks.

     October is Breast Cancer month. We saw pink everywhere we went. I was invited to the Power of Pink Luncheon in Lufkin. Even with rain in the forecast, the banquet room was filled with tables. The chairs were filled with women of different ages, sizes and ethnic backgrounds, reminding us that cancer is an equal opportunity disease. There were a few brave men in attendance, also. We heard stories from survivors and a few who are currently receiving treatment. The food was delicious, catered by Brookshire Bros., and the entertainment was lively. We heard the staggering statistics of new diagnoses per year. And the encouraging numbers of survivors. We were told the importance of regular exams resulting in early treatments and happier endings. It was a good day.

     Chicken update: no more sick hens. And no interruption of egg laying. Praise the Lord.

     We are coming up on election day, Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving Day. We have much to be thankful for.

     Even though this election season has definitely been one for the records-we still have the freedom, the right and the responsibility to cast our votes. If you haven’t already voted-see you at the poles!

     We don’t have to be in the pink to say thank you to all who pray, give and serve at GODTEL. Thank you!

Because of Him we serve,

Martin and Mary Baker
