The Ruckman Family Prayer Letter: August – September 2022

Dear Friends, Joel 2:25a says “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten.” While that verse was a prophecy given to a backslidden and chastened Judah, it has brought hope to many backslidden and chastened Christians. I am thankful for thereality of that verse. Have you backslidden on God? Are […]

The Ruckman Family Prayer Letter – May – July 2022

Dear Friends, Proverbs 16:9 says, “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.” With Bible Institute on summer break, we began Children’s Bible Club in our compound and excitedly anticipated Saturday visitation in nearby villages … but… In June, Angie developed a rash which quickly enveloped her legs, stomach, and arms. […]

The Ruckman Family Prayer Letter – March & April 2022

Dear Praying Friends, Psalm 103:1 says, “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.” In the last two months, so many prayer requests have been answered that all we can do is “bless the LORD”. In fact, I think this will be more of a praise letter […]

The Ruckman Family Prayer Letter – January & February 2022

Dear Praying Friends, John the Baptist said concerning the Lord Jesus Christ and himself, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” That must be the story of our lives, homes, and ministries.

Dear Praying Friends, Romans 15:20-21 says “Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation: But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.” While these verses reveal […]

The Ruckman Family Prayer Letter May – June 2021

Dear Praying Friends, Greetings in the good name of our Jesus Christ. As we begin another prayer letter, I want to testify concerning the goodness of our God. Romans 2:4 speaks of the “riches of his goodness”. Exodus 34:6 says that He is “abundant in goodness”. And Psalm 23:6 says “Surely goodness and mercy shall […]

January – February 2021 Psalm 126:1-3 says “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; […]

The Ruckman Family Prayer Letter March – April 2021

Dear friends, “Every need supplied; every moment satisfied” is the story of our lives. I cannot believe how much has happened since our last prayer letter two months ago. God has certainly shown Himself strong to our family and ministry. As many of you know, my sweet wife was diagnosed with uterine cancer in February. […]

Ruckman Family Prayer Letter January – February 2018

Dear Praying Friends, Greetings from the Ruckman family. Thank-you for your continued interest in, “willingness to communicate” to, and fervent prayers for our family. Recently, I was overwhelmed as we opened forty-six letters from Sunday School kids to our family expressing their love and prayers for us. In Ghana, we would say “Medasi-pa” (Thank-you). Praises: We continue moving forward […]
