When I asked God to show me where my ministry was, I was a bit doubtful when His urging was an online model ministry. I questioned God… “A hobby as a ministry? Really God?” I was a bit doubtful. Yet He showed me “Yes, this is what I need you to do.” So I stepped out on faith.
And as God so often does, He showed me, over and over, that when I place my faith in His purpose, great things happen.
I never thought about reaching a lot of people. Or where this would go. I just thought I’d post some devotionals, some pictures of models, and maybe a few people would see it.
Never did I dream what God would do if I just obeyed His call.
Praise God, in the last year, AgapeModels.com has reached over 12,400 visitors, who’ve generated 69,000 pageviews in over 22,000 visits. And they’ve come from 98 countries.
To be honest, I’ve not done anything extraordinary. No ads, no marketing to speak of. Yet through it all, God has delivered people here, and His purposes are evident every day.
People have contacted me with so many different circumstances that led them here, and in all of them, it’s plainly the Lord at work. It’s not anything I do- I just build some models and write some stuff and God does amazing things.
And I’ve met incredible people that have become my wonderful Christian brothers and sisters. I can’t begin to list them all, and I won’t try. Yet each of you, my brothers, know who you are. You are blessings to me, and I praise God for your faithful support and service.
What I am most thankful for is that God has used this ministry to reach people for Christ in a way that I would have never thought could happen. People have come to a saving relationship with Christ, not through anything I do, but through God’s prompting through this simple ministry.
And though most of the site content is about models, one thing has remained consistent- every time someone comes to the site, there is a chance that they’ll be led to read a devotional, or even to look at the “Becoming a Christian” page. That’s what it’s really all about. 3%. That’s how many people out of the total visitors, every day, take a look at the faith content. And that’s what drives me on.
Reaching people for Jesus, to God’s glory.
God has really taught me a lot through this. And blessed me in ways that I could not have imagined just one year ago.
I can’t wait to see where God takes things in the coming year.
Again- thanks to all who have faithfully supported AgapeModels.com through your visits, your words of encouragement, and most importantly your prayers.
And to those who are wondering “what is this guy going on about?”, I invite you to visit the “Becoming a Christian” page. Because it’s not about religion or rhetoric or any of that stuff. It’s about one simple thing…
Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour?
It’s the most important decision you’ll ever make. What you do with the Jesus will determine where you spend eternity. Jesus said “No one comes to the Father but through Me.” That means it’s only through the saving grace of Jesus Christ will you go to Heaven. You can’t earn your way in. It’s as simple as making a decision to ask Jesus into yuor heart and make Him your Saviour.
And I invite you to make that decision today.
If you’re not sure what all that means- contact me and I’d love to share more with you. Because I know one thing- Jesus loves you. He died for you, and arose from the dead to break the chains of sin and death forever.
And He wants to have a personal relationship with you.
Praise the Lord for His grace and mercy.
Now go build a model for the Lord! 😀
