Greetings Goth Family,
Thank you for all the prayer for our community and for the Grave Robbers ministry. Lives have been changed and your prayers have moved mountains. What a blessing that you have been.
Last week at our Church, Crossroads in Cincinnati, Ohio, hundreds of people were baptized over five services. There were so many new followers of Christ that they had to baptize six to eight at a time. Joy filled my heart and the tears flowed as each one was baptized. What a mighty God that we serve.
We have several events coming up that you may wish to check out. Also, several praise reports from the prayers of our community.
If you would like to add an event, article, poetry, or anything else to next monthâ€™s newsletter, please let me know. GodRulz@fuze.net.
Hugs of Love,
Goth Mom Donna

GOTH NIGHT OF PRAYER
One of the most important parts of the Grave Robbers Ministry is our focus on prayer. As we pray for our community, ask God to give you favor as you reach out to those that do not know Christ.
The last Friday night of each month has been set aside for prayer. This is a way that we can all pray as a family. The time that you pray makes no difference, this is just a way to communicate and talk to God on behalf of our Goth family and for yourself.
Brain Healy, from Dead Artist Syndrome, is doing much better. He has been a blessing to our community over the years with his music and friendship. Please continue to pray for him.
Nordic Phil Powell for the East Coast is doing much better. Nordic Philâ€™s ministry takes him into many secular Goth events where he reaches out with the love of Christ. Please continue to pray for him as he regains his strength.
Sean Doty, California, is in need of a job asap.
Pennie Ley, from England, has been having breathing problems from working without a dust mask. Please keep her in prayer as God restores her lungs.
Prayer for Steve Weeseâ€™s health as the doctors try to find out what is making him so fatigued. Also, pray for him as he comes to Ichthus Festival as a speaker.
Pray for the Grave Robbers Ministry.
Pray for the Christian Goth community. Pray that God will use all of us for his glory.
SCRIPTURE OF THE MONTH
He forgives your sins â€“ every one. Psalm 103:3 The Message Bible
There is no sin that God canâ€™t forgive. No matter what you have done, God will forgive you. All that you have to do is ask for that forgiveness. God will wipe the slate clean.
That is all for this monthâ€™s newsletter. If you have something that you would like to put in next monthâ€™s newsletter, please contact me at GodRulz@fuse.net.
Wishing You Godâ€™s blessing,
Mom Goth Donna
