For that reason we send you this email newsletter just before our trip and earnestly ask for your prayers. Tim, Terry, and Sherman head to S. E. Asia for several important conferences, to train and disciple. Here is a brief overview (some is a repeat from the last newsletter, but very important).
- Jan. 12 to 16, 2015: Tim and Sherman, along with a Karen leader are speaking at a conference in Chiang Mai, Thailand, aimed at increasing our effectiveness in spreading the gospel to the Buddhist world. Pray for us as we present God’s Plan for His Church that the Holy Spirit will open hearts and doors for it to be used for His glory.
- Jan. 19 to 23: Sherman will be with the Karen Bible College for follow-up GPHC training. Pray that the students will have completed lesson preparation work.
- Jan. 19 to Feb. 9: Tim and Terry will be in HCMC, Vietnam introducing GPHC to two groups and doing follow-up training with two other groups. Pray for preparedness with these groups and for Tim and Terry as they lead them.
- Jan. 26 to 30: Sherman and a local Karen leader, introducing GPHC to Karen leaders from each district in Thailand. Pray for a divine impact on these leaders that will reverberate throughout the Karen population.
- January 30 to February 7: Sherman will be visiting two key leaders in Myanmar to encourage them and follow-up on the Chin translation which is nearly ready for printing. Please pray that these men will see more clearly their role in moving this ministry forward as an indigenous work of God.
