Now manly in villages where there is
no church building. During the years, we have bought
houses, schools, libraries, post offices, museum,
theatres, restaurants and other types of buildings yet
we have slowed down as the prices have grown.
We have in the past purchased
buildings as little as $300.00 and many less than a
thousand dollars. However, we feel we will reach the 200
goal for the Glory of God.
Not one of these buildings belong
to us. They belong to the local churches. After we will
see if the Lord gives a new goal. If He does I believe
it will be 300 buildings.
If we do reach it, it will be
because of people like you are standing in pray and
faith with us. We do not count the buildings in Africa,
India, Central and South America because over the 55
years of missionary soul winning all over the world we
have lost count.
However, God keeps the record, He
just calls us to be good faithful stewards of what He
calls us to do for His Glory. We receive requests from
all over the world, requesting help with projects and
outreaches. We can not take them all on but as the Lord
leads us we by faith get involved to help.
For example we this month received
a request for Bibles and tracts for some villages of
North India reaching into some village of 5 states.
Unreached villages are the targets for this outreach.
The cost is being purchased very
cheaply through the Gideon Bible Society in India. We
are supplying 3,000 Bibles for this outreach. 30,000 is
the goal in hopes of starting 1,000 home churches.
In the 3 photos below left you can
see the joy on the faces of the pastors and workers for
this wonderful outreach.
The people in the villages are so
poor and to receive a gift like this is so wonderful.
Many of the outreaches of this ministry we do not report
but as we said God keeps the records and all Glory to
Please pray for this outreach that
many will find the Lord. Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him,
If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him
I will be celebrating my 79th
birthday on May 27th and even though we will be out of
country, we want to Praise God for what He has done
through folks like you and us.
My birthday request is that we may
yet continue in His calling for a few more years. We
want to be faithful until the end of the race.
