Dear Mission Partners,
I am so happy to report that over 18,000 people attended the four-day Gospel crusade last week in South Asia and 5,075 people received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! I heard reports from the local churches that they are overflowing with new believers who received salvation at the crusade.
One church of 150 people had 50 new believers show up to their church last Sunday (see picture below). The church was actually too small for all the people, so the men sat outside the front door, listening through the window and open door, while the women sat inside for the service! I’m sure they will be adding services and expanding their church building in the future to accommodate all the new believers, but this is a very good problem to have. Praise God!
We also heard great reports from the local pastors who attended our Pastors Conference. Over 225 pastors from all over the region gathered for our two-day pastors training conference and many of them were touched at the conference. Also, many were baptized in the Holy Spirit on the final day of the conference.
We praise God for what He has done in this very unreached part of the world and we pray for God’s blessing and grace to be on the pastors as they disciple the new believers to be mature followers of Christ!
Thank you so much for your prayers and support. We set our eyes on our next crusades in South Asia, which will happen in January and March of 2016. Please continue to pray for us as we storm the gates of hell with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ!
God bless you!
