HEARTS AFLAME: ALMA DIXON KNOWS DATA MATTERS
Alma Dixon is a volunteer we can’t live without. Our database of donors, volunteers and partners is critical to our operation and she’s the one who keeps it percolating along. Because of her, our supporters get their their newsletters, e-news and records of their donations. When we pick up the phone and call someone, the number is available because Alma keeps the database humming. It’s a huge job and its one she volunteers for.
When we asked how she became involved with GHM, her answer was a smile and one name: Steve Sharp. Steve was worship minister at Alma’s church when he started his ministry in Central Asia. When he asked her to help, she “really had no choice – he never takes no as an answer.”
Sermon Tapes Put Jesus in the Driver’s Seat
Alma knows the effectiveness of media when it comes to the Gospel. She had been brought up in a Christian home, but admits “Jesus was a passenger in [my] life.” After she was married her brother sent her some sermon tapes which caused her to change drivers. “The Lord began to soften my heart, I started reading the Bible, attending church and eventually I relinquished the driving to Him.”
That’s the kind of life-changing message GHM brings to The Middle East and Central Asia. Religious leaders there promote a monotheistic belief system, but that system does not satisfy the hearts of the men, women and children of the region. Alma reminds us, ” The people in that part of the world are eager for spiritual answers and they are responding to the Gospel message.”
Through satellite broadcasting, GHM delivers the Gospel into the living rooms of countries like Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Iran and Kazakhstan. When a viewer is touched by the message of our programming, there are hundreds of home pastors, trained and spiritually mentored by GHM, who can bring the viewers into their hidden churches. As Alma pointed out, these home churches are not filled only by our viewers, but many in those areas are encountering Jesus in visions and dreams. Even as many here in the Western World are turning their backs on Christianity, the Lord is moving in The Middle East and Central Asia.
“Think eternally, life passes quickly,” is the message Alma wants to pass on to others. She knows her work for GHM is for the Lord and she’s happy to be a part of reaching others so far away with the Gospel. Wouldn’t you like to join Alma and many others in supporting GHM with your time, talents and money?
