The Experience Fall 2020 Edition

A Letter From Don Lough, Jr.

I s s u e 1 2


When we think about where our world is today with natural disasters, health crises and political unrest, who can we really trust... scientists... politicians... the media? It all seems so complicated and even overwhelming. If you’re like me, there are seasons when my trust wavers because things just don’t seem to add up. Times like these help me relate to David in Psalm 62:3 when, under attack, he described himself as a leaning wall and a tottering fence. This is why I love the Word of Life Bible Institute theme this year – Trustworthy. God is the only One who is completely worthy of our confidence. He is a refuge and shelter for us – always present and available to hear us and to give guidance through His Word. Trust in Him at all times, you people, pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Psalm 62:8 In this issue of The Experience , we invite you to read how believers just like you are practically living out their trust in God’s presence, peace, provision, and purpose. PS: It would be a privilege to pray for you. Just fill out the online form: , and one of our staff members will pray for you in the days and weeks ahead.
