Love For His People
Arms of Love
First edition will be published today! – 08.08.17 (8x8x8)

Greetings to our friends now, and new ones coming along.
This morning around 4:50 am I recorded the very first edition of Love For His People‘s new video series we are calling, “Arms of Love“.
After sensing the Holy Spirit’s nudge to do such a project, and knowing the additional time and costs involved, we are moving out in faith. It will be a small beginning, but we believe the Word of God, which states in Zechariah 4:10, “For who has despised the day of small things?” (NKJV). We won’t!
When the Lord then says “Now is the time”, I don’t often ask how will I do it, or when do I start, or say, “Now may not the the right timing for this.” His timing is always perfect.
This photo depicts where we will do our main production. Right here in our former two-car garage, which was then transformed into a NASCAR man’s cave back in the ’90s, and then got saved and now has become the “Martin Museum of Moments”, the prayer room, and the grandkids hang out den when they come over to Grandpa and Grandma’s house.
The “new” Love For His People Arms of Love studio
So why not now make it the Love For His People studio? As my good UK English friend Martin Berger (GODTV representative) would say, “Brilliant!”
We will feature “story-telling” by myself. Maybe even reading a chapter or two out of my book
Arms of Love
(now translated in Urdu/Pakistan and soon to be in the Nigerian Yoruba language).
My good wife Laurie will be featured, as she speaks of life from a woman’s point of view. Having raised two boys, two girls, and also with seven grand kids (along with me), she has some great wisdom and practical mentoring words to speak forth. Laurie has also “raised” literally hundreds of two-year olds, being she has served with the Calvary Child Development Center in Charlotte, North Carolina for the past 16 years. You want to know how to raise a two-year old? Well, I know one who can help you!
My oldest daughter Hannah Avalos
will come on at times and tell her encouraging stories learned from being a newly-wed several years ago, as she joined hands with her husband Jonathan Avalos and then helping to raise his then 5-year old son Payton. (As an ordained minister, I got to be both Father-of the-Bride, just like the comedian actor Steve Martin in the movie of the same title, and officiating pastor! I don’t think that
Steve Martin has the ordination papers though.)
Hannah and Jonathan Avalos
Hannah will have many great stories to share of miracles, and of our Lord Jesus’ (Yeshua’s) work being outworked through those experienced blessings, especially with their now 19-month-old son Levi Zachary. Born with TAR syndrome (missing both forearms and having needed blood work done weekly the first full year), we all have seen the Lord’s arms of love around Levi’s arms of love.
Grandson Levi – he likes the “toys” found in our kitchen.
But wait! This commercial isn’t over yet! Our pet Dachshund Zoe Girl Martin just might wobble in on the set at times. She thinks she can go anywhere and do anything anytime, being a full-grown woman now at 11 (that is 77 years old in human years!)
With her small arms of love, I guess we will let her make her presentation…how to eat 3x daily, and then sleep for 20 hours a day.
I guess I am a bit excited. Knowing what the Lord has done with the ministry, and now this, taking another big step forward, has to get one excited.
Thank you Jesus! Stayed turned. We will have the first one today.
