A POTPOURRI OF PARTNERSHIP…

(NEPAL)

“And the Lord was adding to their number

day by day those who were being saved.”

(Acts 2:47)

Dear Friends & Partners,

   Nepal continues to be one of those countries where God is sovereignly and supernaturally building His Kingdom and growing His church at an exponential rate. Informed missiologists quickly point to the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal as one of the spiritual “hot spots” where the Holy Spirit continues to be poured out as on the Day of Pentecost. This supernatural revival has been going on for decades, until recently, without much foreign intervention or manipulation.

A POTPOURRI OF PARTNERSHIP…

(INDIA)

“I always pray with joy because of

your partnership in the Gospel

from the first day until now…”

(Philippians 1:5)

Dear Ministry Partners,

   In my last ministry report, I shared “A Potpourri of Partnership” that focused on some of our African partners. Specifically, we reported on Yaw Asante in Ghana, Komivi Christopher Ayiboe in Togo and Stakwell Yurenimo in Kenya. Patt and I appreciate you for taking the time to read about them because through us they are your partners and national missionaries. I will be reporting on other African partners in future eNewsletters.

THEIR CRISIS & MY CRISIS

“Praise Him with resounding cymbals!”

(Psalm 150:5)

Dear Friends and Partners,

   This week, June 23rd, I had my last treatment for prostate cancer – 40 radiation treatments in all! Hopefully, this has eliminated cancer from my body. I will have a follow-up check-up in a month to see how the negative side effects are diminishing. Then in 3 – 4 months I will have a blood test to see if the radiation did its job and the cancer cells have been killed. At my last weekly appointment with my urologist, he said to Patt and me, “You have done fantastic!” That was great news. To God be the glory!

A POTPOURRI OF PARTNERSHIP…

“I always pray with joy because of your

partnership in the Gospel

from the first day until now…”

(Philippians 1:5)

Dear Friends and Partners,

   Because of the expanding and exponential nature of our partnerships and projects in a number of countries, we get many exciting reports each week - more than we can report on! As you know, Patt and I send a weekly eNewsletter that goes out each Wednesday morning. I usually spend most of Monday writing it from emails and reports from our key national partners. Then Patt proofs it (and tries to shorten it!) before Jane Fraser, our CFO and Ministry Assistant, lays it out and sends it to you.

TAKING THE ‘PULSE’ OF ORLANDO

“But mark this:

There will be terrible times in the last days…

evil men…will go from bad to worse,

deceiving and being deceived.”

(II Timothy 3:1, 13)

Dear Friends & Partners,

   As I write this op-ed, it is the evening of “Father’s Day.” For Patt and me, it has been a blessed day of going to church, followed by lunch with some of our local children and grandchildren. It was a “love fest” through worship, good food, fellowship, laughter and reminiscing.
