Therefore said he unto
them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye
therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers
into his harvest. - Luke 10:2 KJV
What a joy to teach and
graduate 122 students from our 16th three-month intensive Basic Bible
School. It was wonderful to see the 150 plus workers even more
enthusiastic than ever in the study of the Word of God. Some
teachers were amazed and surprised to see how intensive the students
still were after days of study week after week.

to even use
the platform to seat the students.
The students listen intently taking
notes of the teaching.
We believe God will raise up
many of the 5-fold ministry found in Eph 4:11 - "And he gave some,
apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors
and teachers"; we believe they will be used of God to bring forth a
great harvest of precious souls.

As usual it was a joy to
work with Walter Zygarewicz of Global
Vision, who has done a wonderful job of ministry in co-coordinating
all 16 schools. Joining us was
Harley Fiddler of Focus Ministries. Brother Harley has always
been a blessing teaching in the schools. We have worked with these two
brothers in many parts of the world. They are true men and servants of
God with a burning vision for the lost. I believe that is the reason
Marge and I have worked in such close harmony with them. Truly we are
all workers together with Christ.

These ministers, combined
with their gifting, made up the 5 fold ministry of Ephesians 4:11. These
all invested a part of their God given ministries into the hearts of
these students and future workers in the vineyard of the Lord. In the
special services, we had, in addition to the school, see people come to
Christ being healed and blessed.

Also, among the students we
heard many testimonies of victory. Some were bringing souls to Christ
telling how that their lives had been changed from victory to victory.
There were some wonderful testimonies of healing, etc. It seemed they
could hardly wait to get going with the knowledge they received from the
Word of God. In addition to giving out 122 certificates we gave
each student our latest book in Russian, our revised edition of ?Secrets
to Successful Christian Living.?
A visit to the orphanage that we help

We bought this building and planted this
church last year.
We also were able to
purchase 5 more buildings for church buildings. This makes a total of
104 buildings our ministry has purchased these past 12 years in the
former USSR; Marge?s stepbrother who was in Ukraine for several weeks
with Pastor Darrell, was touched by the needs of the ministry and
people. He gave the $700.00 for building #100 plus another $300.00 for
remodeling work in Torkrino, Crimea.
Also though our ministry,
he gave money to help buy another van for the work of God in Crimea.
We were glad to pass the offering on in his behalf. Marge and I
have, over the years, striven to be wise and good stewards.
We praise God for each of
you who pray for us and have confidence in our ministry to invest
This is building No. 100 for $700.00 in
Torkrino, Crimea, Ukraine.
We are also
continuing to help over 50 workers in Ukraine and Russia. In most cases
it is as little as $15 a month up to a maximum of $125 per month.
However, it makes it possible for them to work full time for the Lord.
We are able, with your support, to help several orphanages in Ukraine.
In Molochanoye, Poltava area we purchased building #101 for only
