Armando Valladares was imprisoned by Fidel Castro for twenty-two years, eight of which in solitary confinement. His faith sustained him when he lived in near darkness without any toilet while in solitary confinement. His book "Against All Hope" recounts his indescribable torture, living conditions, and the threat of facing a firing squad‚ÄĒand his relentless hope.
Valladares‚Äô faith reminded me of Abraham ‚Äúwho against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara‚Äôs womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.‚ÄĚ (Romans 4:18‚Äď20). Hope is the confident expectation of what we have not fully realized yet.
We are thankful for the words of hope that our broadcasters faithfully proclaim each week on SermonAudio. We share their feedback with you regularly so you can join us in giving glory to God for what He is accomplished through the proclamation of His Word.
SermonAudio is proud to be a partner with FAME
as we co-produce a weekly 'audio journal podcast' called Five Minutes of FAME
taken from a first-person perspective.
But first, some other encouragements!
This past week we announced truly unlimited sermon uploads for all broadcasters on the site .. at no additional charge! Previously, there was a maximum of 10 new sermon uploads per month. But now, with unlimited uploads at a single flat monthly rate, it's the ultimate sermon service!
In connection with this change, we no longer require a short title for sermons.
Mark it on your calendar! Join us Friday Dec 9 @ 8pm | Stratton Hall, BJU
We invite you to experience an evening of inspiration and encouragement as you hear of the big things a small mission in a forgotten region of Africa has accomplished as they seek to put "God First" in all that they do. The first documentary film produced entirely by SermonAudio, Mungu Kwanza: God First, highlights the work of missionary Alan Dunlop and FAME Mission in Eastern Kenya.
We are privileged to be able to show this film on the campus of Bob Jones University in the beautiful 600-seat Stratton Hall on the evening of Friday Dec 9 @ 8pm. The founder of the mission, Alan Dunlop, will be flying in from the U.K. to join us at the event and will present a brief challenge afterward. We hope you can join us and be an encouragement to this worthy mission!
Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
