OVER 175 FOREIGN MISSION TRIPS THROUGH YOUR FAITHFUL PRAYERS AND SUPPORT!

When the Lord Jesus saved Dianne and then myself, (two years later), He placed us in a church that possessed and expressed a passion and purpose for global mission! God used this ‘foreign mission saturated atmosphere’ to birth a desire and determination in my heart to ‘go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.’ We still stand amazed of how this passion and purpose gradually grew into scores of opportunities to train pastors and church planters to be faithful and biblical ‘fishers of men and disciple-makers’ in their particular cultures. Precious brothers and sisters, you have been an integral part of these tremendous global opportunities in 20 various nations. Dianne and I both rejoice and give glory to the Lamb of God; as well as, rejoice with an overwhelmingly heart-felt gratitude to you, the followers of the Lord and the Lamb! We love you in the Lord Jesus. We would love to thank you ‘face to face’, for how very much you have blessed us and supported this ministry through your love, your prayers and your giving. Please continue to stand with us, as we continue to ‘Go’ and tell of His marvelous grace. As the Steve Green song implores, “May all who come behind us, find us faithful! May the fire of our devotion light their way”!

INDIA

I am so grateful to be a part of the ‘continuing training institutes’ for pastors and church planters in the nation of India. Our first pastor, Dr. Ron Herrod, is the Director of this Bible institute. The institute involves ten weeks of intensive training and covers a curriculum that would normally require two years of Bible College. The goal of this institute is to train an army of godly men, who will lead the way in this dark culture; men, who will proclaim the Gospel to the lost, plant churches and disciple new believers. This particular training will occur in Hyderabad, India and Vijayawada, India. I will have the precious privilege to teach ‘Christ-centered Evangelism’ in Hyderabad for one week. My dear brother Ebenezer, (a pastor, whom we are blessed to support financially), will be my interpreter into the Telugu language. The following week, Raj Eleazar, (also a pastor we are privileged to support), will teach ‘Christcentered Evangelism’ in Vijayawada!

I rejoice to testify that this ‘Christ-centered Evangelism’ study, which was originally written for Cuba over 18 years ago, has now been translated in its 5th Indian language; as well as its 11th language overall! Dear brothers and sisters, I earnestly ask for your intercessory prayers for this preacher, along with all of the pastors and church planters who will hear these “mission transforming truths”.
