Dear Friends and Faithful Supporters:
As our family is settling in for the holidays, we praise the Lord for His goodness this past year! When we returned home from our fall travels on November 7th, we immediately got involved with helping write and produce our church’s annual “Live Animal Christmas Show.” This year there were 10 showings with over 6,000 attending or viewing online. 437 precious souls trusted Christ as their personal Saviour!
As we reflect upon all our travels in 2022, we’ve realized that it has been one of our busiest years. The Lord allowed us to conduct 252 services in 20 states with 287 precious souls trusting in Him. There were hundreds of other wonderful decisions made concerning surrender or re-dedication during the revival meetings. We are constantly reminding ourselves: “This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes” (Psalm 118:23).
I encourage you to sign up for our weekly text updates. This is the easiest and best way to stay up-to-date with our travels, to know how we are doing, and to effectively pray for our ministry. Please text TheRemnant to 84576, and your number will automatically be added. We would be grateful for your partnership as a prayer warrior as we together seek a move of God and revival!
In the middle of November, we passed the 100 million mark of individuals reached around the world with the Gospel through The Gospel Film! Specifically this year, the video came across the feed of 75,632,212 individuals with 45,594,975 views in 54 countries. It was shared 77,917 times with 6,736 people testifying that they accepted the Lord as their Saviour. The stories of those who have been reached are incredible – people on the brink of suicide finding hope, others steeped in false religion becoming unshackled by the power of the Gospel. Please continue to pray for this ministry as we move forward enthusiastically in 2023. The film is currently in 10 stand-alone languages, and we look forward to getting it into several more this next year!
Our Gospel tract printing ministry, Silent Witness Literature, was responsible for printing 1,071,000 Gospel tracts in 2022! We are passionate about getting the Gospel out in any form or fashion that we can! We’ve only got one chance to live for Jesus, and our hearts burn to do as much as possible before our vapor “vanisheth away.” Would you please pray for more open doors and opportunities to share the Gospel with the world?
This year, our four children were excited to release their first-ever KIDS album featuring 20 songs called Sweeter Than the Day Before. It is beautifully arranged and orchestrated and includes a kids choir backing them on several of the songs. We are thankful for their love for music and the opportunity our ministry gives them to use their singing for the Lord! If you would like to order a copy of this album, it is for sale in our online store or on itunes!
We are also very excited to announce the release of our second novel in the Truth Seekers Series! Over the past few years, Katie and I have prayerfully developed The Legend of the Immortal Kingdom – an action/adventure thriller saturated with spiritual truths. The story carries a strong theme of surrender, trusting in God, and living for what matters most. The responses and reviews from readers have been staggering. As strange as it may sound, God is mightily using this novel for His glory and calling many to Himself…. some have even been called as full-time missionaries just through reading this book! In the back of the book, there are two dozen questions drawn from the story to help apply it directly to the reader. If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, head over to our website and order yours today! The powerful message it shares is one every family and teenager, especially, needs.
We thank the Lord for how our children are growing. Julianna (age 3) joined us this Fall singing 2 songs with our family during our meetings. She is blossoming quickly and loves to sing! Alyssa (age 6 ½) was asked to play “Little Mary” in our church’s Christmas Show and embraced the whole process – acting and singing. She came down with the flu and strep throat the week of our performances, but with God’s help pushed through and stayed faithful, never missing a single one! Jonathan (age 8) wrote a song with Katie earlier this year on trials, and God has been greatly using it in our meetings. We are thankful for his tender heart toward others and his burden for the lost. This summer, he surrendered to missions and is willing to do whatever God wants for his future, whether that be long-term missions or short-term trips. David (age 10) has grown up so much this year. He started playing piano duets with Katie for church offertories. He is now my right hand when it comes to setting up/tearing down the book table as we travel, and it won’t be long before he will probably be able to do it all by himself! He has picked up movie-making and video editing this year and we look forward to what God may have in store in this area in David’s future!
Please pray for us as our revival meetings start again in the beginning of January in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin, and then we get back on the road full-time by January 24th! Please continue to pray for Heaven’s anointing and Holy Ghost power to rest upon our lives as we seek to faithfully serve Him. We adamantly believe that national revival and global evangelism is possible! We greatly desire to see God do a mighty work in our generation!
For the Lord’s Glory & the Gospel’s Sake,
Evangelist Caleb Garraway
