From Miracle Reports, "The National Center for Reporting and Investigating Miracles":
Some time ago, Dr. Robert O'Block, founder of the Society for the Cure of Souls, discovered the WatchWORD BIBLE video series produced by WatchWORD Worldwide. After viewing the series, Dr. O'Block was inspired by the program's innovative and effective method of broadcasting the word of God to viewers. Enthusiastic about the program and its mission, he contacted Jim Fitzgerald, developer of the series. Through their interactions, he learned that Fitzgerald's mission was to provide the series to Muslims living in Arabic nations and all over the world. To do this, Fitzgerald would need the assistance of Arabic translators to interpret the WatchWORD BIBLE series and express the Biblical teachings of the series in the Arabic language. He would also require financial support to get his project underway.Not much to read, but look at this.
While driving on a road he didn't normally travel, Dr. O'Block noticed a church set on a beautiful hill. It was called Immanuel Lutheran Church. The church, small, white, and simple, was perched in an idyllic setting surrounded by mature trees and green lawns. He felt drawn to the church, and diverted his route in order to drive into its parking lot.
After parking his car behind the small building, He entered the church and found the doors open. He called out, and got a response from a small office inside the building.
There he found Vincent Will, pastor of the church, studying in his tiny office filled to near bursting with books that were stacked from floor to ceiling.*
Dr. O'Block felt compelled to discuss the WatchWORD BIBLE series he had discovered earlier with him. During their discussions, Dr. O'Block mentioned the important mission that Fitzgerald, the developer of the series, had embarked on, to provide the New Testament via satellite broadcast to Muslim nations.
Pastor Will was intrigued by Fitzgerald's mission and decided he wanted to help. He drove from Springfield, Missouri to Oklahoma to meet with an elderly retired oilman he knew to discuss the project. He believed this Christian man would be happy to provide financial support for Fitzgerald's project, and he was correct. This gentleman, who was in declining health, took action and agreed to support Fitzgerald's mission in any way he could. He happily pledged substantial financial support to help Fitzgerald get his project underway.
Fitzgerald now had the means necessary to embark on what would become one of the most important missions of his life. He contracted the work of Arabic translators, and the project was officially in operation.
Dr. O'Block is proud to see the great progress the WatchWORD BIBLE series is making in Arabic nations across the globe.
* Pastor Vincent Will, former pastor for Immanuel Lutheran Church in Springfield, Missouri, has passed away. However, his wife Eunice Will still volunteers much of her time at Immanuel Lutheran.
