As news of what God is doing through this ministry arrives home, I cannot help sharing a few pieces with you. With all the bad news we see every day through media, it is good to allow our hearts to be refreshed with God’s abounding grace among the nations.
1) The Bengali translation and printing of God’s Plan for His church is the finest job I have seen done anywhere. The quality is excellent and I believe the translation will be good also since the translator and printer are indigenous to India. This will have a direct impact on Northeast India.
2) I heard testimony from a lady who decided after our teaching in Yangon, Myanmar in 2014. She decided to plant a church among the lepers in Chin State. She went into the leper colony and preached the gospel and God responded with not only physical healing but spiritual healing (salvation). The church has grown and the adjacent town has torn down a dividing wall that separated them from the lepers! God is mightily at work!
3) We heard one student in Myanmar share his complete vision of using God's Plan for His Church and another share his ten year strategy, well, actually his 25-year vision for this country; comparing it to the gospel going from Jerusalem to Rome through Paul.
URGENT PRAYER NEEDED! As many of you may have seen in the news, there is renewed unrest in South Sudan where we introduce GPHC to pastors earlier this year. We have planned to return in September for the follow-up training. Please pray for peace and protection for this country and the pastors. Also pray that God will hold this door open so the gospel will spread in this land.
Thank you for standing with us through prayer, support and interest in what God is doing. “Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Selah” (Psalm 67:3–4).
