Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The book of Nehemiah is so powerful and encouraging for all who desire to remain focused and faithful while yet in the midst of adversity. May the Lord continue to use this powerful book to strengthen what remains of His church.
Blessings of Peace in Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul, in fifty-two days. And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was done by our God. Also in those days the nobles of Judah sent many letters to Tobiah, and the letters of Tobiah came to them. For many in Judah were pledged to him, because he was the son-in-law of Shechaniah the son of Arah, and his son Jehohanan had married the daughter of Meshullam the son of Berechiah. Also they reported his good deeds before me, and reported my words to him. Tobiah sent letters to frighten me.
