We are very thankful for all donations that are given for the work of the Lord. Remember that we are in ministry together. Your prayers and donations give us the strength and encouragement to remain faithful to the call of the Lord on our lives.
Thank you all for the Christmas cards and words of encouragement that we have received. As this year come to and end we will be celebrating our tenth year in The Straight Way of Grace Ministry. We have seen a lot of changes take place in our lives through this ministry. We are now looking forward to what lies ahead, not only in 2015 but for all the years that the Lord sees fit to use us as the ministry grows.
Please pray for Usama. With each new venture the ministry expands in there are more and more demands put on his time and energy. Finding a balance in all things is seems to be hard thing to do when you want give everything a priority. We also don't want to become weary to the point that we are not able to do our best in all things.
We love you all and pray that this Christmas will be full of joy as you enjoy your family and friends on this day of our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. Remember that He is reason for the season for you, and you are the reason for the season for Him. He came from heaven to earth to die for you!
Usama, Vicki and Caleb
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Christmas Day by Vicki Dakdok
It’s Christmas day and I start to pray
My mind is full so what do I say?
I think of what You came here for,
Leaving your home to die for the poor.
You came as a King in the form of a babe,
Not to rule, You came to save.
The world was wicked and full of sin.
There was no love in the hearts of men.
Yet, the Father saw the need of man,
And in His wisdom He had a plan.
He would give a gift to set them free.
Of all He owned what could it be?
Giving gifts should be fun, but
The life of His Son was the only one.
We put gifts beneath a Christmas Tree,
But You hung there to set us free.
Thank you Father for what You did,
Giving us Jesus that we might live.

Hello and God bless you all in Jesus Christ,
We have been very busy this summer after Usama's eye surgery. We went from Wisconsin to Oregon, and now we are in Washington. We will be making a weekend trip to BC Canada, and then come back to Washington for a three day speaking engagement in Mt. Vernon. From August 30th to September 6th we will be on a family vacation and will be out of touch by both phone and internet. We feel that it is important that we take this time to refresh our spirits from the busy time that we will have ahead in the last four months of the year.
We will be making our way south to speak in California, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and then Florida. You can check out our website calendar for all the locations in which we will be speaking. As always, we appreciate your prayers for our safety as well as for the people to whom we will be speaking. What we do will mean nothing unless the Lord and His Kingdom is proclaimed.
I just watched a video on YouTube that I think you should all watch and share. It depicts what is taking place in Belgium, but it is a warning of what is to come in the United States and the world. Usama has been saying this, but people don't seem to be waking up. Soon it will be too late. This is very scary and is coming to your neighborhood soon.
The video link below takes place in Brussels where NATO’s headquarters is located.Link: http://www.cbn.com/tv/embedplayer.aspx?bcid=1509282970001
We would also like to let you all know about something new that is happening with Worldview Weekend and Brannon Howse. I am sending you this link so that you can read the whole thing from Brannon himself and make your own decision about what to do. I will tell you that Usama will be having a TV program on Brannon's TV station in the new year. http://www.worldviewweekend.com/news/article/will-you-support-biblical-alternative-false-teaching-tbn-insp-daystar-and-others-such-1
Please keep praying for Usama's eye. It is healing but is still red, and he doesn't see out of it very well. He has called the doctor, but they tell him to give it time. We would also like to ask for your prayers for Caleb. This is his last year of school and with that comes all the questions of what college will he go to and how to apply for scholarships. On top of this, he has to prepare for taking the ACT. We are thankful for you all and pray that you are being blessed as you serve the Lord wherever you are.
Your Servants in His Service,
Vicki, Usama, and Caleb
What a mighty Lord we serve!
Usama's last visit to the Doctor was very good. The Doctor said that he is recovering very well and his sight in the left eye was 20/25. He has not had any infection and the redness in the eye is getting better each day. The Doctor did say that will with all the scar tissue that he had to remove Usama might have lost his sight in that eye if he had waited much longer before getting the surgery.
Usama has one more visit to make on the 14th but it looks like he will be able resume his speaking schedule so be sure to keep checking our calendar for upcoming events in your areas. We still have some available dates through the end of the year and we are also booking dates for 2015.
Thank you all for the prayers for Usama's surgery and for the continued prayers for our safety as we travel. In about 3 weeks we will starting our long trip to Oregon and Washington so those travel mercy prayers will be very appreciated. Usama does all the driving but he will not be able to do the long stretches that he has in the past because he will have to rest his eyes more often so the trip will take even longer. We will driving from WI on interstate 80 so if any of you along the way has a place for us to speak between July 27 and August 3 please let me and we will make arrangement to stop on our way to Medford, OR.
God Bless you all,
Vicki and Usama
Vicki of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry will post announcements and updates regarding the ministry for you here. God bless you in Jesus Christ! Thank you for your prayers, support and encouragement!
