Nacogdoches/Livingston – February 2017

Women’s Dorm Construction is Underway!

      We are very pleased to announce the completion of the sale of the old Redland Hotel which has housed GODTEL’s Nacogdoches shelter for the past 40 years. This has enabled us to move forward with the plans to construct the women’s dormitory. In fact, the forms for the concrete are in place, the permit to build has been approved, and crews will soon be arriving to lay the foundation. I just realized it was exactly one year ago that I wrote about the start of building the men’s dormitory in Nacogdoches. That building was completed and passed inspection in October and on November 1, 2016 we moved from our downtown property to 1902 Douglass Road where our Zip code is 75964. At our new location, we are already operating at near capacity and have just added four more beds in the men’s dorm. Until the women’s dorm is completed, we have only 14 beds for the women and there have been nights when all beds were full. At least we have not had to turn anyone away due to a lack of space. When we received a donation of pillows, sheets, and towels from The Holiday Inn Express recently, the manager informed us she had been told that GODTEL had closed. Not so! We did not close even for one day. Rather, we spent the night of October 31st at the downtown location and moved all the people to the new location and spent the night of November 1st there and have been “up and running” there ever since. We are very gratified for all the assistance we have received from so many sources and we know all this is ultimately coming from the loving hand of our faithful Creator and Savior, Jesus Christ. Error in this Month’s Insert On the inside page of the insert titled “Creation and the Dating Game —or— How Old is a rock?” we made reference to a passage of Scripture saying it was in 2 Thessalonians. It is actually in 1 Thessalonians 5:21 where we are taught to prove or test all things and to hold on to the truth. Sadly, we had already run off 1,500 of the two-sided pages before we discovered the error. The “frugality” of my Scottish nature would not allow me to re-run them. After all, the truth is still the truth, no matter where it is found, right? Bro. June on YouTube Just a reminder that Bro. June’s weekly sermons are available on YouTube. Back in October of 2015 when our youngest son, Joshua, began filming the sermons, he had only one camera and no special lighting. Now he has three cameras and three spotlights and the improvement is remarkable. Just go to the YouTube site and search for June Gentry or GODTEL. The Lufkin TV station KLMN (Channel 42.1) has also run Bro. June’s sermons with a possibility of more to come there. If you want to add to your Gospel music collection, we have CDs by the June Gentry Family and some “in the works” by Bro. June “going solo” which can be ordered directly from GODTEL. We also offer studies about the scientific evidences supporting Creation, teachings on Faith by Bro. Manley Beasley, and other literature which can help with spiritual growth. No Government Funding Here Although GODTEL does receive funding from the Nacogdoches Area United Way, we do not seek nor accept funding from government sources. There have been times that one of our “disgruntled” residents threatened to “have our government funds cut off” because they failed to get their way about something or other. Bro. June generally encourages them “go ahead” and then smiles knowing the futility of that task should they really try it. Food Harvest GODTEL has qualified to receive food donations through the national Food Harvest program. In Nacogdoches we receive almost daily donations of pastries from Starbucks and at the end of each semester, we receive large donations of food from the SFASU cafeterias as they shut down until classes are ready to resume. In Livingston, we receive donations from Pizza Hut three times a week and our residents are very glad to eat pizza. Our cook, Benita, is very glad to have such an easy meal to serve. Farewell, Jennifer Early in December, my secretary for the past year, Jennifer Champagne, turned in her resignation. Though I am not planning to replace her, her absence is deeply felt. If it weren’t for Benita and one of our residents, Catherine, who are helping me wade through January’s tasks of gathering statistics, generating W-2s. 1099 forms (for the 30 sub-contractors who helped construct the men’s dorm), finalize last year’s accounting and set up the notebooks for 2017, prepare this newsletter for mailing, complete the year-end report for the United Way, calculate and pay the quarterly sales tax, etc., I would not be done with January’s tasks until March! Thank you, ladies. Thank You We thank God for His faithfulness to supply all our needs and we are thankful to each of you who prays for and helps support this ministry to the poor. We pray that God will bless you abundantly as the return of Jesus draws ever closer. You are welcome to drop by any of our mission locations for a tour of the facilities and to meet our staff.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness,

     We had twenty two people join us for the arrival of the new year. Even though we were bringing in the new year by staying up until 10:00 pm the residents were all snug in their beds by 9:30 pm. We had a lot of folks coming and going this past month. We have the privilege to help a veteran who lives out of town. He comes to Lufkin, spends the night at GODTEL and rides the bus to the Houston VA hospital for his medical appointments. A small price to pay for his service to this country. Our guest cooks didn’t have to make new resolutions. They put on their chef hats and continued to perform their culinary talents. This past month we had a double helping of hamburgers and fries and pizza. Mexican casserole, baked chicken, barbeque sandwiches and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches rounded out the month’s talents of our guest cooks. Jimmy checked in to GODTEL in May of 2016. We got to know him as the months passed. He had lived a rough life, spending many years in prison. It was obvious that he was not healthy enough to go out and look for a job. He started doing laundry for us. He even helped Roger feed and water the chickens and gather the eggs. His body kept retaining fluid and soon Jimmy was going to the hospital on a regular basis to be drained. He would feel good for a few days and then be weighed down with the extra fluid in his body. He, also, made several trips to the hospital and stayed several days each time. Weaker and weaker he got. Jimmy died early this month. I don’t mean to be depressing or graphic. I told Martin that I was tired of having residents die. God is so good. He reminded me that Jimmy was loved and cared for at GODTEL. He heard the gospel twice a day. He assured Martin that he had a personal relationship with the Lord and he would land in heaven when he died. The best part, on this side of heaven, is the reconciliation with his brother before he passed on. Thank you, Lord, for bringing Jimmy to our doorstep. We have had quite a few women in the dorm this past month. Sometimes you get a group who gets along and works together. But not this time. As soon as Jo (not her real name) arrived the complaining and bickering and fighting started. Several times during the day she came to us about another resident wanting immediate action against said accused. With love and gentleness we tried to listen and calm her down. She could not drop the issue even after it was resolved. One evening it came to a head as Jo and another woman were cussing and fighting. They were threatening each other on the smoke deck. Ash cans were flying as the conflict escalated. One of the women picked up a small table to throw at the other. One of the men on the deck was able to stop her from throwing it. And the fight was stopped. Martin, Joseph, Roger and I spent time hearing all sides of the story about what happened. We told the two women to go to bed and not talk to each other. I am glad they were not room mates. We decided both women had to leave. And they did the next day. Amanda and David met at GODTEL. They hooked up with each other. Sadly it happens frequently. They were missing meals. They were late to Bible study and curfew. One night they missed curfew altogether. In the morning we found out that they had cut a new screen in the men’s dorm and climbed in. They stayed the night in the same room, in the same bed. They, too, were told to leave. As sad and frustrating as it is we can definitely say that it is NEVER boring around here. We know God IS in control and He is ALWAYS good. As times passes we can even have a laugh or two about it all. The praises for the month include 8 new jobs and Jessica applying for and being accepted to attend the spring session of The Mosaic Center. But, alas, Jessica moved out so she could go to class and still work. She had money saved and found a small place to stay. Way to go, Jessica! On a personal note, our son and grandson went to Niger, Africa on a mission trip. They left January 25th and returned February 8th. Our prayers started as plans were made for the trip. We asked for hearts to be prepared on the missionary side as well as those receiving the good news of Jesus. We have a preliminary report from our son. He is still feeling the jet lag. Blaine (grandson) is 13 years old. No stories from him yet. He had to jump back into school and assignments as soon as he returned. There is a picture of Blaine on a camel. I know this mission trip will be locked into his heart for his whole life. It will be fun seeing the fruit from this journey. “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things!”   Romans 10:14-15 Our granddaughter, Emily, had a very important birthday. She is three years old and such a big girl. My daughter says I am “such a grandma”. Yes, I am. God has blessed us with four wonderful grandchildren. They are all amazing and beautiful and perfect (almost) and geniuses. Just ask me and I will tell you so. Thank you so very much for your support this past month. I can’t think of a better set of partners than you in our service in HIS ministry at GODTEL Ministries. Remember your sweethearts. Remember our past presidents on their day. And remember our current president in your prayers. No matter your politics we are encouraged to pray for our leaders. (1 Timothy 1&2) Pray for wisdom, discernment, patience and mercy for GODTEL missionaries as we share and show God’s love at all three locations. Nacogdoches~Lufkin~Livingston

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

     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.

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.
