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

*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.

  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.
