and African Workers Added, Three New Church
Buildings, Two in Africa and One in India Ministry Report!
Volume XXXXVI No.4
We have added some new outreaches and support recently and would
like to make them known to you so that you can pray for them and
their soul winning ministries. There are 5 additional ministers we
are now supporting monthly from Malawi, East Africa and 5 from the
Agratalla and Calcutta, India areas. We are told from David Walker
of the David Walker Ministries that these 10 soul winners do greatly
need help. We are supporting each of these full time pastors,
evangelists with $25 monthly.

We wonder how can this
be, but we have read and heard on the news that President Obama’s
half brother in Kenya, Africa earns only one dollar per month. It
staggers us. We have also given money to build 2 churches in Malawi,
Africa and one in Orissa, India. We have also purchased for
evangelism a motor bike in the Calcutta, India area. David wrote: “I
will send the pictures as soon as I get them- won't take long, and
as soon as we start the building projects. I will get the pictures
after construction. When you send the money we will get it all
underway. Thank you, thank you, thank you, love you brother”.

of construction of the two church buildings in Africa is only
$600.00 each and the one in India is $1500.00. Can you imagine
building a church in North America for only six hundred dollars or
even for fifteen hundred as in the poor area of India? Orissa, India
is an area of great persecution of Christians. Brother Walker writes
more, “Yet, pastor I.D. Suna, is working for the Lord. He has planted many churches.
These are some of the finest men in Malawi, Zambia and India. They
will do you proud. They have been taught well and we have discipled
them for three years. We have also provided materials and Bibles for
them. They are really great investments for ministry.” Here is a bit
of a report from a news media of the persecution against Christians
and yet these workers are putting their lives on the line for the
Gospel. Let us pray for them. TIKABALI, India (Reuters) - On a
starry night last week, as Lal Mohan Digal prepared to go to bed, a
mob of raging, machete-wielding Hindu zealots appeared above the
hills of his mud house and swarmed over this bucolic hamlet in
BUDHAKISHORE JAMATIA of AGARTALA-TRIPURA.

same church on the Hill top
which was destroyed, now rebuilt.
DANIEL KHARA is planting churches in Basirhat, India.
Christian homes in the village were smoking heaps of burnt mud and
concrete shells. Churches were razed, their wooden doors and windows
stripped off. "We could hear them come shouting 'Jai Shri Ram'," Digal said, referring to the rallying cry of Hindus
hailing their warrior-god.The mob poured kerosene on the thatched
rooftops of the village homes, then threw matches. Church spires
were hacked down. The Hindu part of the village was untouched. For
four days Digal and his stricken Christian neighbors hid in the teak
forests, before being herded to a government-run relief camp. The
violence replicated itself in village after village, as the rural
Kandhamal district of Orissa convulsed from some of the worst
anti-Christian attacks in India. At least 16 people, mostly
Christians were killed, churches destroyed and 10,000 Christians
were forced to flee their homes as violence spread

remember in 1967 visiting with Dasiy Osborn, when Missionary
Evangelist T. L. Osborn walked out of his office. Before hugging and
greeting me, he said; “Tony you will never be the same!” I did not
know what he meant. He said, “You just came back from Africa and you
will never be the same.” I knew what he was saying, once you have
preached in Africa to the Africans, you are never the same. If you
have any ‘preach’ in you, they will pull it out of you.
|Marge and I have traveled and ministered in over 125 countries in
the past 46 years and although I love preaching and telling people
about Christ everywhere I go, yet I think it is the Africans I enjoy
preaching to the most. They respond to the Word and faith message so
wonderfully. That is another reason why I am glad we are taking on
more of these wonderful workers. Please pray for all the workers you
are helping us assist in Africa, India, Russia, Ukraine, China,
Latin America and Asia. You have a part in this GREAT HARVEST! We
are workers together with Christ!
