*Praise Report

Thank God for the completion of the “Muslim Idiom Translation” brochure that A. was asked to write.

Muslims need the Gospel! Distributing Scripture to them is one of the most relied upon ways to expose them to this glorious message of salvation from sin by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, increasing numbers of what is termed Scripture or “Scripture-based products” have been intentionally rendered with Islamic terminology. Instead of providing … Continue reading Let’s Stop Giving Muslims Islamized Bibles: Best Practices For Assessing The Accuracy Of Scripture & Scripture-Based Products In Witness To Muslims

  3. The Grant for the HIV Clinic goes through (half the staff has been working without pay for 3 months due to lack of funds).

*Praise Report

There have been several opportunities to talk in churches about cervical cancer screening and to screen women locally in the capital city.

There have been opportunities to share about HIV/AIDS and purity to the youth of different churches as well.

A woman was brought In to the small, rural clinic that I help at once a week. She was so weak; her family carried her in by her arms and legs. Her blood pressure was almost zero (80/0), very pale and very fast heart rate. The nurse got an IV quickly and we got fluids started and sent her to the local hospital. Amazingly she spent two days there and went home just fine. She was so close to death. Many prayers and God’s grace kept her alive. Glad to be a small piece in helping.

JB and KB

Please pray for our Fall Retreat that begins September 29th. We are meeting in Hersey, MI for a time of life changing teaching, worship, and fun. This event is massively important, and has been instrumental in God’s transformation of people’s lives. Two years ago, a young lady from our group repented of her sinful lifestyle and made a decision to follow Jesus. She then went to Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, and has a heart to serve in ministry. This all happened here.

L has returned to Michigan for the time being, and is no longer on support with Assemblies of God World Missions. Her 2 year term is complete, She is planning to gain more experience in ministry stateside before returning to Central Eurasia.

That being said,she could use prayer for finding a math teaching job in the Oakland County area. And for a new relationship God has blessed her with. For wisdom and guidance as to whether this is the man she should spend the rest of her life serving Him with.

For praise reports:
– she was able to be the maid of honor in her sister’s wedding
– she met a man who loves the Lord, and wants to serve Him!
– she also met a young Turkish woman who is her age, and they are planning to get together to practice English and Turkish together. Praying for her heart, as she is Muslim, and doesn’t know Jesus yet.

GPM Retreat

I was able to gift to all of the apr 150 future missionaries my book on finances. I also participated in teaching a workshop about the importance of learning language (especially english) to motivate them to work on language acquisition ahead of time. The retreat was a big success and many are getting closer to being able to go out on short term trips and others are getting close to being able to go out as long term missionaries

  1. Please continue to pray with us for the pastors that are continuing to rebuild, the area damaged by a Hurricane. They are experiencing some opposition/harassment  from the government because they didn’t have the materials to rebuild in the allot-ed time-frame, but it was the government that was holding the materials up in customs so they couldn’t begin building.
  2. Please pray for favor with local government officials and that the harassment would stop.
  3. Also, please pray for the three other projects that I have going on, because of all the damage in the country the government is sending all of the building materials there and/or not releasing materials they have stored in warehouses. We have been searching unsuccessfully for cement to pour the final roof sections on the main project since February.
