Michael & Dawn Newsletter January 2022

Friends,                                                                                                      

Thank you for your support through prayer, finances, and encouragement.  My books, One Hope and Faithful, are available for purchase on our website as well as Amazon. I have just submitted a re-write of Deep Dark Holes. It will be available soon.  Also, I have music available on Pandora, iTunes, Amazon, and other music outlets…Search for Michael Mason: Dawned On Me.

Seasons…everybody is in the middle of one. Yet, while we may all be in the same season of the year, we’re all in a different season of life.  Some are in seasons we could have never predicted.  Some seasons are better than imagined, some are worse.  Some seasons make us better people, some can make us bitter.  Some are filled with hope, some with despair.  Regardless of your circumstances, this season will soon pass, and another will come. And then one day, the seasons will end.  May it be said that we believed and trusted God regardless of the season.

 

As you can tell from our schedule here in early 2022, Dawn and I are speaking together at several churches. We call these events, A Weekend With Michael and Dawn.  God has blessed in these meetings which consist of a Friday night Women’s Meeting, a Saturday morning Men’s Meeting, a Saturday night Couple’s Dinner, and a Sunday Revival Day. I am still preaching a number of Revival Meetings in 2022, but I am also thankful for the opportunities to do the weekends with Dawn.  We also appreciate the ministry opportunities God is providing for Dawn.  She will continue speaking to women’s ministries and leading a study at our home church.  I stand in awe that God continues to open doors for Revival for me, opportunities for Dawn to speak to women, and the invitations we receive to speak to couples. We continue to seek His blessing… Thanks for praying.  If you’d like to have me or Dawn speak at your church… We’re available for Revivals, Conferences, Retreats, and Special Events. Thanks.

Michael and Dawn December 2021 Newsletter

Friends,                                                                                                               

Thank you for your support through prayer, finances, and encouragement.  My books, One Hope and Faithful, are available for purchase on our website as well as Amazon. I have just completed a re-write of another book I published several years ago titled Deep Dark Holes. I’m hoping that will be available by early spring.  Also, I have music available on Pandora, iTunes, Amazon, and other music outlets…Search for Michael Mason: Dawned On Me.

As you can tell from looking at our schedule for early 2022, Dawn and I are speaking together at several churches. We call these weekends simply, A Weekend With Michael and Dawn.  God has been blessing in these meetings which consist of a Friday night Women’s Meeting, a Saturday morning Men’s Meeting, a Saturday night Couple’s Dinner, and a Sunday Revival Day. I am still preaching a number of Revival Meetings in 2022, but I am also thankful for the opportunities to do the weekends with Dawn.  We appreciate the ministry opportunities God is providing for Dawn.  She has had a busy year and is looking forward to what’s ahead.  We stand in awe that God continues to open doors for Revival for me, opportunities for Dawn to speak to women, and the invitations we receive to speak to couples. These ministries to women and couples are extensions of the call to take the Gospel to the lost and hurting.  We continue to seek His blessing… Thanks for praying.

We’ve had a busy year.  I have preached in fifty-two churches in 2021 which is amazing considering the pandemic restrictions.  Dawn spoke in twelve churches…and that’s a busy considering she works a full-time job, leads a monthly women’s Bible study, and travels with me as much as possible.  We are blessed and moving forward….

If you’d like to have me or Dawn speak at your church… We’re available for Revivals, Conferences, Retreats, and Special Events. Thanks.

Michael and Dawn Mason November 2021 Newsletter

Thank you for your support through prayer, finances, and encouragement.   My newest book, One Hope, is available for purchase through Amazon and will soon be available through our website.  My book Faithful, is also available for purchase on our website as well as Amazon.

I’m hoping to have that available by early spring.   Also, I have music available on Pandora, iTunes, Amazon, and other music outlets.  Search for Michael Mason: Dawned On Me.

Michael Mason Ministries was created some thirty years as a means of accountability for me as I travel and preach.  Back then I recognized the importance of a board of directors that would pray for me, encourage me, and seek the Lord on my behalf.  I also recognized the importance of having bylaws and a budget…all of which are a means of accountability.  All these years later I am still traveling and preaching, trusting the Lord to open the doors and provide the financial means to take care of my family.  God has proven Himself faithful again and again.  While I am convinced it is God that provides for me… I also know He uses people.  So, thank you to those who have helped by praying, giving, and encouraging.  I have no intention of slowing down or doing anything else.  I am called to travel and preach the Good News of Jesus.  I thank the Lord for calling me and sending me…and I thank you for being a part of this ministry.

We are thankful for the ministry opportunities God is providing for Dawn.  She has had a busy year and is looking forward to what’s ahead in 2022.  Also, the Lord has opened several doors for us to speak to couples.  These ministries to women and couples are extensions of the call to take the Gospel to the lost and hurting.  We continue to seek His blessing… Thanks for praying.

We’ve had a busy year.  I have preached in over fifty churches in 2021 which is amazing considering we are still coming out of the pandemic restrictions.  Dawn has spoken in twelve churches…and that’s a busy considering she works a full-time job, leads a monthly women’s Bible study, and travels with me as much as possible.  We are blessed and looking forward….

Michael and Dawn Newsletter September 2021

Friends,                                                                                                     

Thank you for your support through prayer, finances, and encouragement.   My newest book, One Hope, is available for purchase through Amazon and will soon be available through our website.  My book Faithful, is also available for purchase on our website as well as Amazon.  Also, I have music available on Pandora, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and most other music outlets.  Search for Michael Mason: Dawned On Me.  

This month I am including an excerpt from a message I’ve been preaching lately. It is titled Almost Saved from Acts 26:27-29…In Acts 24:25 Felix resisted the Gospel because of Inconvenience. There is the inconvenience of time but the greater inconvenience of change.      In Acts 26:24 Festus mocked Paul’s testimony because of Insanity.  There is the insanity of the resurrection but the greater insanity of Festus’ unbelief.  In Acts 26:28 Agrippa rejected salvation because of Indifference.  There is the indifference toward Paul but the greater indifference toward the Gospel.                                                                                              Almost home isn’t home. Might be a few minutes, a few miles, or even in view. But it’s not home. Almost saved isn’t saved. It might be good, sincere, or even baptized – But it’s not saved.                …Agrippa was almost saved…He almost believed. He almost trusted.  Almost surrendered.  But he wasn’t saved…26:27,“Agrippa, do you believe the scriptures? I know you believe.”                                          …Someone said the greatest tragedy is to die lost.  But I disagree.  The greatest tragedy is to die almost saved.  Knowing how and why…believing in Jesus and the Cross…and believing God had a plan for your life – yet never being saved. Almost Is A Powerful Word… Almost passed – Almost failed.  Almost won – Almost lost.  Almost lived – Almost Died.  But the greatest and saddest of all the almosts is to be almost saved..

Michael and Dawn August 2021Newsletter

Friends....I am grateful to be preaching each week.  Thank you for your support through prayer, finances, and encouragement.   My newest book, One Hope, is available for purchase through Amazon and will soon be available through our website.  My book Faithful, is also available for purchase on our website as well as Amazon.  Also, I have music available on Pandora, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and most other music outlets.  Search for Michael Mason: Dawned On Me.  

This month I’m including a brief excerpt from a message I preached recently… Unbelieving Believers from James 2:14-26   I read that there are an estimated 3,500 Elvis impersonators worldwide.  Every day, worldwide approximately 3,500 people get up and pretend to be somebody they’re not. They dress like Elvis, sing his songs, and imitate his every move…but they are not Elvis…they’re simply impersonators.  I wonder how many people get up on Sunday morning and pretend to be somebody they’re not?  They dress the part, sing songs about the Lord, and agree with the sermon…but they’re still not saved. …James describes believers who have no evidence of a life changing encounter with Christ. These are possibly believers that once lived surrendered lives but something happened… These are also possibly folks who have never trusted Christ.  As a traveling preacher I have noticed four distinct categories of believers... 1) Believers who don’t really believe.  They are believers in name only.  2) Believers who don’t know what they believe.  Not grounded in God’s word and not growing in faith.  3) Believers who will believe anything. They believe in Jesus but they also believe in Buddha.  4) Believers who believe the Truth by faith - with the evidence of works. These are the born again, walking by faith, trusting in God, Spirit-led and prayerful.  God help us be believers who truly believe!!

Michael and Dawn July 2021 Newsletter

Friends,                                                                                                                                                                                   

July and August are unusually busy and blessed months.  When I think back to a year ago and the anxiety of an empty preaching calendar…I am indeed grateful to be preaching each week.  Thank you for your support through prayer, finances, and encouragement. 

My newest book, Faithful, is available for purchase on my website as well as Amazon.  Also, I have music available on Pandora, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and most other music outlets.  Search for Michael Mason: Dawned On Me.  A hard copy CD can be purchased through my website also.  I have submitted, to my publisher, a re-write of a book I wrote several years ago, One Hope.  I am expecting it to be printed this month.  

This month I’m including an excerpt from my message, A Convenient Season - Acts 24:24-25.  Charles Templeton was once a great preacher.  He was known far and wide for his ability to communicate the Gospel.  He was also friends with Billy Graham before Graham was a household name.  But Templeton began to struggle with unbelief.  He eventually turned away from Christ claiming agnosticism.  Agnostics are not atheists believing there is no God. They simply believe one cannot know if there is a God.  When interviewed by Lee Strobel for A Case For Christ, Templeton was asked how he felt about Jesus.  At the time of the interview Templeton was already in his 80s.  He wept as he talked of how he admired Christ.  He then abruptly ended the interview by holding up his hand and saying, “enough of that.” In Acts 24, Felix, like Charles Templeton, said “enough of this.“  Felix wanted Convenience.  What he got was Conviction.  He turned down the offer good for eternity and chose instead to live for the moment.  Felix ended the sermon, not with an Amen but with a Not Now. What a sad story with a sad ending.  But the good news is clear, God has made a way for those who are looking for a way. He has given the opportunity to anyone will call on His name.  -Romans 10:13
