Recent Ministry

This last month we hosted a few teams that helped to extend our house visit ministry to new people as well as continue to follow up with old contacts.

  • Pray for the teams as they return to their homes to be a witness and light to others as they share their experiences.
  • Pray for those who had the opportunity to hear about God’s love to come to faith.

We hosted a conference for our youth group and refugees. This turned out to be a fantastic experience for all involved. Many people felt their faith strengthened and their passion for the Lord revived.

Praise the Lord for the positive nature of this event.

  • Pray for the participants to grow in their faith.

Thank God for the conference and how he showed his provisions for the finances.

Fellow leaders and I participated in a new study to test out a new Bible study tool, and we were very encouraged by the results. We are excited to begin implementing the material where we can.

Thank God for the way He is using us in this ministry. 

  • Pray that we would be able to start a new service specifically for women.
  • Pray for the families in our ministry that have physical needs as well as the provision for the school.

Last Months Ministry

We are thankful for the many occasions to fellowship with the youth and families of the church this last week. The teenagers had a unique opportunity to visit a church in another town to join a three-day conference. At the end of the meeting, they received a certificate to remind and encourage them of everything they learned. It was great to meet and fellowship with another church body that has the same mind and world view as ourselves.

Praise the Lord for the opportunity for fellowship with other believers.

  • Pray for concepts and truths to permeate the hearts and minds of the youth and guide their lives.

We were able to visit many of the families of these same youth members and encourage them to attend the church meetings. We visited those who were unable to participate in this event to encourage them in the Word.

  • Pray for the families, the youth, and for opportunities to expand our church services.
  • Pray for funds to serve the needy families.

Praise the Lord for the way He is using us each week.

Pastor I’s Story

(Editors Note: Names and places have been changed or redacted due to government persecution.)

I was born into a committed Christian family and went to church almost every Sunday. At school, I was the only Christian student amongst 37 of my classmates. My classmates asked me questions continually about Christianity such as, how do you believe in three Gods? How could God be crucified and be buried? I was upset and shocked because I could not answer them since I thought I was a real Christian. As a result, they started telling me about the great things they have in their religion, such as giving women their rights, etc.

At this point, although I consider myself a Christian, I started thinking that I couldn’t answer these questions because “Christianity must be twisted.” Then one day God sent my cousin who came to visit us. He was a believer, and he noticed from my questions regarding Christianity that I had some doubts.

He invited me to his evangelical church, and during the meeting, I felt the pastor was preaching and talking straight to me. He said, “You need to repent and receive Christ as your Savior.” Then he asked a question, “What would you do to Christ after he gave his life for you.” My answer was, “I want to leave and deny Him.” That answer made me feel so bad I started to cry, and I prayed to receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior on the 24th of April 1984. Soon after that, I began training to do evangelism and discipleship, I joined ministry at a young age and love the Lord with all my heart.
