And you will be part of the greatest renewal in the history of your world.  It is coming.  So be of good cheer and do not become discouraged.

-Jesus, Volume One


Direction for Our Times is the organization which was established in December 2004 to promote the writings of Anne, a lay apostle, and membership of the Lay Apostolate of Jesus Christ the Returning King.  Direction for Our Times is dedicated to facilitating and helping the lay apostles to spread the messages recorded by Anne, a lay apostle, to the rest of the world.

Direction for Our Times accomplishes this in many ways besides publishing the messages recorded by Anne, and making them available for purchase and distribution.  Some of the ministries carried out by Direction for Our Times include prison ministry, ministry to teenagers, including putting on retreats and speaking engagements in high schools, ministry to young adults including the School of Holiness, India ministry, hosting Eucharistic Days of Renewal, creating quality DVDs to spread understanding and knowledge of the messages from heaven, taking in prayer requests, publishing study guides for lay apostle study groups. social media outreach, providing a website with information and the ability to download the messages for free or purchase the messages online, developing smart phone apps with the messages, making the writings available for Amazon Kindle, and facilitating the translation and distribution of the writings in several languages.

In order to continue these ministries and to continue being able to make the writings of Anne, a lay apostle, available, Direction for Our Times is always in need of financial support.  Direction for Our Times is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the USA and a registered charity CHY17298 in Ireland.  All donations are tax deductible.  You can donate to Direction for Our Times with a general donation, or you can donate to a specific ministry within Direction for Our Times to have all of your donation directly fund that aspect of the ministry of Direction for Our Times.  Click here or call the office of Direction for Our Times (708) 496-9300 (USA) or +353(0)49-437-3040 (Europe).


Translations: Spreading God’s Graces Around the World


“Will you answer My call? I am relying on My apostles on earth to spread My words and to allow My light and love to flow back into this world. It is only a difficult job if you rely on yourself. If you rely on Me, you will see the greatest things happen in the shortest time.”

Jesus, November 1, 2005 Monthly Message


One of the major tasks of Direction for Our Times is facilitating the translation and distribution of the messages into other languages.  For years, staff at Direction for Our Times has worked to find translators and funding to translate, print and distribute the messages.  Jesus and His Mother are calling out to us to be a part of His worldwide renewal.  Jesus wants these messages spread to all His children.  Would you like to help spread these messages to the rest of the world?  We currently have translators for several languages, but there are so many languages that do not have one.  Donations will help fund the translating, printing and spreading of the messages in numerous languages.  Other than donating, if you want to help to physically spread these messages into a certain part of the world, please contact the Direction for Our Times office.   There is no point in translating and printing messages in another language if we do not have a way to spread these messages in the parts of the world that speak that language.  Contact the Direction for Our Times offices if you wish to help. We currently have several dedicated lay apostles spreading the messages into all parts of the world, but much more help is needed.


If you are a translator and are interested in helping us translate a language in which we lack a translator, please contact the Direction for Our Times office.   Every translator needs his/her translations reviewed by a priest or theologian.  If you are a priest or theologian, are bilingual and are interested in helping us translate or review translations, please contact the Direction for Our Times office.


You may also donate to help the translation and spread of specific languages.  You will find links to all these donation options when you click here.  In the donations section of the online bookstore, you will find more information about the current status of translations in each language and you will be able to donate for that language’s needs specifically or for translations work in general.
