Letter From the Publisher

Not too long ago I had lunch with a friend of mine who is in the medical profession. Like so many people in her field, she is scared to death about what is happening with this government controlled healthcare bill that seems destined to pass this fall. This is only the latest in a series of challenges that have plagued our country in recent months.

Despite these trying times, God has continually reminded me that He is still in control. As the Lord promised Joshua, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NIV.

As bad as things might seem right now, they pale in comparison to challenges the early church faced under the leadership of Nero. During difficult times, it is always helpful to remember how fortunate we are to live in a country where we are free to practice our faith openly. God’s Word reminds us that we were born for such a time as this. None of us is here by mistake. God has a plan for each of us. So stand strong in the Lord and He will sustain you.

On a lighter note it’s hard to believe that this summer is almost over! My prediction for this school year is Katy Tigers football team will win their third straight state championship. Go Big Red!

In Joe’s words, our innate talents are given by the Lord, and are meant to be used to serve the Lord. Aside from being a President and Publisher, Joe Menslage is also the co-founder of Katy Christian Chamber of Commerce, where Christians can network, build business connections, listen to passionate speakers, and enjoy monthly breakfasts and lunches.
