May 2015 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastor & Church,

Paul said; “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21. Another also said this; He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.  Well, living is always risky business and choices must be made.  However it’s great to be here where we are, in God’s will.  Thank you for your help in allowing us to be involved in the work and ministry here.  Thanks to God for His call, His enabling, and His conviction that brings men to salvation.

Pray for Amos.  He is a troubled young man who lost his brother a year ago to a clan fight.  His brother was saved, from what we had heard, but Amos probably is not saved yet.  He walked into Wau one day, from some hours away, to talk to Bro. Jim Blume. What a story we listened to! That morning he had begun digging up his brother’s grave because of a dream he had had, then his wife and sister stopped him.  “What should I do?” he asked us.  We talked, explained some of God’s control over life, spirits, dreams, and the peace found in the Bible that teaches these things.   After prayer, he walked away from my front porch and back over the hills.  Pray for the seeds planted.

The ministry highlight and biggest blessing last month was the Watut Easter Camp meeting at Yeva.  I enjoyed the aviation ministry of Bro Blume in order to get there and then spent the week in a fairly remote location without electricity, etc.  It is a 12 hour hike from the nearest truck or boat access.  They listed 365 registered for meals, plus community visitors and the hosting church.  I spoke 8 times in 5 days and there were 2 other guest speakers also.  27 were saved and a few more in the days after the meeting.  We were able to leave them a Coleman lantern to use.  Pray for Bro. Jerry Kanau, the Yeva area, and the work there.

Through your prayers,

Stan Rowe & family
