Ministry Update, December 2020
Dear Friends,
For to us a child is born, to us a child is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this (Isaiah 9:6-7).
As you read these verses, especially at this Christmas time of year, you can take heart in the coming fulfillment of this entire passage. Jesus Christ already bears the titles given and is working to bring His government and peace to rule over all the world. We look forward to seeing this established, and we thank you for your part in seeing this brought to reality. We rely on the zeal of the LORD of hosts to accomplish our part in His plan.
We recently republished How I know God Answers Prayer by Rosalind Goforth. This is a very inspiring book that will lead you to put your trust in a God who knows your needs and is happy to bring you all that you need, especially during difficult times and when we do not know what is going to happen. You can purchase it from us at or Amazon. It is a great idea for a Christmas present.
Daniel Pennington is continuing the Brushfire remodel and hopes to reopen the store in January. His helper, Schaeffer, has moved into the apartment and is helping with the work. They are painting and recarpeting and then will build the bar for the espresso machine. They are a much-needed ministry in Gunnison for the university students and for the town. Please pray for the work to go smoothly and for protection from the enemy.
Jim Wilson and Lisa Just continue to publish Jim’s blog and work on writing more new books. Jim is at home and continues to receive visitors with reduced hours as he grows weaker. His family is taking very good care of him. Lisa works hard pulling Jim’s material together in preparation for publishing. Please pray for them. Jim would especially like more people to know about his books, particularly How to Be Free from Bitterness. If you have benefitted from any of his books, please consider leaving reviews of them on Amazon; this will help more people notice them. (To leave a review, find the book you want to review on, then scroll down the product page to where the customer reviews are and click on the “write a customer a review” button. Here is the link for How to Be Free from Bitterness.)
Brad Scheelke continues to work at Oasis Books in Logan, UT. He has one of the few Christian bookstores in the state. He is continually getting into conversations with people, especially Mormons, and teaching them about the grace of Jesus in forgiving their sins. He has been bringing up suicide in most of his conversations and getting lots of responses. Please pray for these people and for a helper in the store.
I keep praying for WSU and UI. They are both doing online classes until the end of the semester. UI will start up again in person in January. Please pray for me as I consider what to do now that I do not have the ability to set up my book table. Tanna, a woman who stopped by at UI, told me she was an atheist that had been raised in a home with a Wiccan (witchcraft) mother. She was not open but did talk about the existence of God. She took a book, left and read it for a couple hours, then returned it and said she was not convinced. She is the kind of person I look forward to speaking with again; hopefully she will be back next semester.
Thanks for praying for us, and thanks for giving to us. We appreciate your support and are working hard to reach our part of the world for Christ.
Merry Christmas!

Rodger Boothman, CCM Director
