My flight Tuesday from Jamaica was very exciting. We missed our approach at the Miami airport and had to abort the landing. We had to go back up and fly around a second time. Thank God this one was successful, even though it was rough. As I was leaving the plane, the pilot said to me, “Thank you for your prayers, we sure needed them today.” The weather in Atlanta was bad when we arrived here, but I thank God, in the 99 mission trips that I’ve made to Jamaica, all of them have been safe. It’s good to be back home again.

Jamaica was wonderful. We were able to supply the highschool in Olympia Garden with forty globes. The staff assured us that these were desperately needed and would be very helpful to the students. We are also supplying laptop computers to as many of the students as possible. Computers are very difficult to come by in Jamaica and when you do find one that can be purchased, the price is outrageous. We have been able to find a source that we can purchase these laptops for $165.00 each. If you would like to help donate one to a student, it would be much appreciated. We will then furnish you the name, photo, and a thank you note from the student that receives it.

I will be in York, Pennsylvania at Heritage Cathedral, beginning Friday evening April 8, 2011, with Pastor Steve Rambler. I will be there through Sunday evening, April 10, 2011. I want to see all my friends in the area.

Press Release: Is the earthquake in Japan, a fulfillment of Bible prophecy? With all that is going on in the world today, Rev. Jim Whittington, of Atlanta, GA,

asks the question: Are we living in the last days according to what is written in the Bible? Matthew 24:6-8 says “And you shall hear of wars and rumors of

wars; see then that ye be not troubled; For all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation,

and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” Rev.Whittington goes on to say

that there are other scriptures, such as Mark 13:8, which seems to come into play here, it says, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom

against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of

sorrows.” Luke 21:11 also says that in the last days, that there will be great earthquakes in different places. And that there will be great signs from Heaven. The

world has experienced several major earthquakes in recent times, in Haiti, New Zealand, Chili, and now in Japan, and many other places. The wars that are also

going on around the world and the unrest in many nations also comes into the description of these passages of scripture. Scientists are even puzzled by the

unusual activities that are going on in the earth. Not limited to earthquakes, tsunamis, severe weather patterns, but also to many other unusual occurrences.

Violence also fills the earth today, and this also is one of the prophecies about the pattern that would exist in the world in the last days. II Timothy the third

chapter declares all of this. Rev.  Jim Whittington does not claim to prophesy but only references the current events to Biblical passages.



Japan Earthquake

My mother has had two light heart attacks within the last two months. The doctor suggested a heart catheterization, even though she is 86 years old. We called all the family together to pray. We called on friends, loved ones and minsters, to pray. Bishop Dennis McGuire, the former General Overseer of the Church of God, Dr. T.L. Lowery, founder of the T. L. Lowery Global Ministries, and many others prayed for her. What I am trying to tell you is, someone, somewhere, got a prayer through. The doctors had wanted to do the heart catheterization on Friday, but Mother wanted to wait until Monday, which they did. We kind of believe that Mother was giving God a chance to work a miracle. Well, this is where the “heart creates its own bypass,” comes in. When the doctor went into the heart, he found that the artery, on the right side of Mother’s heart, was totally blocked. Because it was totally blocked, there was nothing that he could do. If it had been 99% blocked, he would have had something to work with. Here is the good news about the miracle. The doctor discovered that Mother’s heart had created a new blood flow around the blockage. You may have heard of this before, but I never have. It has all the makings of a miracle to me. Mother went home today, and the doctor said when the heart creates its own bypass, the flow gets better as time goes by. Medication will be given to help, and thank God for the doctors. The scripture I gave my mother before she went in for the catheterization, was the same scripture that I held onto in 2007. That’s when I had to have an Aortic valve replaced with an artificial valve. The doctor even said that I “flat-lined” (died) twice, on the operating table. Psalms 118:17, is the verse of scripture we both held onto, which says, “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the lord.” To God be the glory!!! And for whatever it is worth department, I did see the light at the end of the tunnel.
