Please enjoy a short video from Pastor Tyson Muaku Tshala in the Democratic Republic of Congo, thanking you for your help! (In case you missed the original need, you can catch up here).
We want to give you a couple of updates on projects we have recently emailed you about and share the blessings of the results!
Earlier this week, we emailed you about Pastor Tyson Muaku Tshala in the Democratic Republic of Congo and his need for financial assistance to be released from the hospital. As always, you came through, meeting and then exceeding the need! The need was $500, but you gave $1,445, the excess of which we will keep aside for future medical needs that we will receive from our network of national church planters. We quickly forwarded the funds over to our group director, and he shared this with us;
I have announced this good news to him through phone call this evening, I felt on tears and spent about 5m not talking. He is so thankful for this help.
We will share a video update from him once he is settled and has recovered further. Thank you!
The second update is regarding Pastor Solomon in Kenya and his need for help with his diabetic medication. With the support that was given, he is now covered for the expense of his medicines for the next year. What a blessing for him that he will not have to worry about that! He wrote to us to say;
I am so thankful for the support i have received towards my medication and will go a long way in helping me to continue in ministry.
Thank you again for your support!
We receive frequent messages from our network of national church planters regarding medical issues and relief. We are also so fortunate for you, our donors, who, time and again, come to their aid, often with a surplus that we can use to help others without needing to go to you to ask again. Last month we sent the necessary funds to our regional director in Nigeria to allow his spouse to begin her cancer treatment with her first dose of chemotherapy. Praise the Lord that we could help with this need because of you, with the surplus funds we had received.
Today we have a need in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Tyson Muaku Tshala has been ill for some time with a hernia and appendicitis, though that has not stopped his ministry, having planted five new churches in the past two years and leading many to Christ. On Friday, though, the pain and sickness reached a point where he had to be operated on. The operation was performed on Saturday, and the doctors were able to correct both issues. All that remains now, though, is the bill of $500 so that he can be released from the hospital and purchase the medications and supplies he will need for continued healing.
So, if you are able, please donate online, here on this page, and allow him to return home before Christmas. You can also mail in a check and designate it to “Tysons medical bill.” Any extra will be used for future medical needs that we receive from our network.
Thank you for your support and impact around the world!
You may remember back in April we raised funds for a project over in the Democratic Republic of Congo for 2 corn grinder machines. These would allow the local church to help members grind their own corn, sell corn flour to others and bring in a small income by charging others to use it. We wanted to give you a short video update on the project now that they have been using them for the last 6 months or so, so please enjoy!
