SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Well, it’s never ending in your family too.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS That’s exactly right. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. That’s what you say with your children.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS So we need your help. Will you pray during this anniversary month, this healing ministry of 40 years, will you pray about being a part of this special project this summer? We’ve got to do this work. And there may be someone watching who can say, yes, I’ll help you repair an entire roof. There may be someone watching who could say, yes, I’ll take that $27,000 stadium roof on that baseball stadium because I believe in your ministry of reaching people in the world of athletics. See, we’re in athletics to be a witness for Jesus. We want to see the world of athletics come to the feet of Jesus. We’re in baseball, we’re in basketball, we’re in tennis, we’re in volleyball. We’ve got swimming, cross-country, track. All the ORU teams are strong. We’re strong in athletics because we want to be a witness to the athletic world and see those people brought to the feet of Jesus Christ.
And we believe in that and we need your help. And of course we’re strong in academics. We’re a three-star university, rated by the New York Times. And, you know, if the New York Times said it, of course it has to be right. And we need your help. Will you pray about sowing a special seed this month? And for everybody who will sow a minimum seed of $100, I’m going to send you this magnificent motion picture, Venture Into Faith.
And all you have to do to receive it is to let me know you want it. Just call the Abundant Life Prayer Group, 918-495-7777. Put a seed on your credit card. Or write and say, yes, I want that video and, yes, I want to help you with your project this summer. We need your help. Will you help us? Will you help us restore ORU and get it ready again for the students when they get here in the fall? Will you help us.
SPKM ARLIE WHITLOW Yes, I believe they will.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Our address is, Richard Roberts, Tulsa, Oklahoma. If you live in Canada, Richard Roberts, Toronto, Ontario. Or call the Abundant Life Prayer Group and put a seed on your Master Card, your Visa, your Discover, your American Express, whatever card you want to use. And be sure and ask for Venture Into Faith. If you sow a $100 seed, minimum gift of $100 seed, I want you to receive this magnificent motion picture. And I’ll only be offering this just this month, Lindsay.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS You know, honey as Arlie was talking about being in Washington, recently Cheryl and I were in Washington, D.C. at the Women in Leadership Conference, and as we were there we were able to take a IL02 tour of the, really the highlights of Washington. And Cheryl and I got out of our car and we walked up to where the statue of Abraham Lincoln was sitting. And when you walk up all those stairs, by the time you get up there you think you’re going to faint anyway. And you get to the top and there was Abraham Lincoln.
And he is so massive, so enormous when you see it. And Cheryl looked at that and she said “Do you see how big that is?” And I said, “Yes.” I could see her mind clicking. She said, “You know, Jesus said He’s got the whole world in His hands.” And we saw how massive the hands of Abraham Lincoln on a statue looked. And she said, “Can you imagine Jesus stretching out His hands when God said, He’s got the whole world in His hand,” like the song you teach your children, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hand.” And I want to say something to you today, just being, hearing of Washington reminded me of this, whatever you need today, no matter how big your need is, if God can hold us in the palm of His hand, He can take care of your needs today.
