Dear Prayer Partners,
Thank you for all that you do in prayers, support and concern.
“The LORD gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.” Psalm 68:11. This month we had the privilege to host Bro. Alan Brooks with PNG Bibles Distribution (under BIMI). He spoke at the Bible school, and then surveyed High School & Elementary Schools in this area that are already finished and those yet to be done. Over $2 million has been raised for this worthy project with 760,000 Bibles already delivered in 14 of the 40’ containers. Keep them in prayer. It looks like they will reach the one million Bibles mark by February. Thank you to those involved!
The Missions Conference at the church in Wau went well with Pastor Holmes Tako as guest preacher. They will turn in Faith Promise cards in a couple weeks.
I believe 11 were saved. Two were from the new work, where we bused some in from Kwembu area near Kaisenik. Pray for Pastor Alphonse Timb and Wau Baptist Church as they grow.
Do you have any good used English Hymnbooks? As things move more and more to English, people are enjoying singing English songs. We are looking for at least a hundred but could use much more than that if you have them. Please let me know and we can work on how to arrange shipping.
A church member died recently nearby. I had the opportunity to preach twice during the funeral time over 3 days. Other preachers preached as well, and I ask you to pray for the gospel to shine brightly for those still needing to be saved.
“Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen . . . For the customs of the people are vain:” Jeremiah 10:2-3. Different superstitions come up at funerals, but thank the Lord for good Christian pastors who take a stand to oppose them. Pray for the gospel to continue to work!
