Dear Friends,

We warmly welcome you to our brand new website! We are blessed to have you join us today. We truly praise the Lord for this wonderful opportunity and count it a privilege to share the blessings of the Lord with you. The Lamp Newsletter International is a bi-monthly Christian publication, filled with inspirational writing and devotional messages. Our Newsletter was first established in 2008. October 2020 marked the 12th Anniversary since its founding. 


We have posted our vast collection of newsletters (past and present) here online for you to freely view or download in PDF format. So, if you did not read an issue from years ago, you can do it now! If you missed an issue because you were too busy to read it, now you can! 

In this time of great need, when the world is looking for hope in the midst of despair, and for light to shine in the darkness of all that is happening around us, it is our desire to continually shine God's light through our Newsletter, to help make a difference. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our Newsletter. We also share information about our other  ministry resources, here online. We hope you enjoy your visit with us and pray that blessings from the Lord will flow abundantly into your life, through the riches of His love and grace. 

Yours in Christ,

Wanda J. Burnside
Founder & President
