We recently let you know about a need in Honduras for Pastor Franklin, whose vehicle had been damaged on his way to his new church plant in the mountains (his 4th church plant!). You were generous enough to meet his need, and his vehicle is now repaired, so he sent a photo and a short letter;
We greet you in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, wishing that He is blessing your lives, your families and the activities that you carry out in your daily life.
The reason for this is to thank the offering we received for the repair of the vehicle we use to transport us to the mission. Said offering was very helpful, the vehicle was left in favorable conditions to continue carrying out the work. We were able to repair each of the houses that were specified in the application.
We really did not know how we were going to repair it, but thank God, He placed his grace towards us, before you and moved your generous hearts to mercy, to be able to offer for this purpose, may the Lord be adding to them according to his grace.
Attached we send some photographs as evidence that the resource was used appropriately and for the purpose for which it was sent.
For Christmas 2022, we did a fundraiser catalog of items you could order to be donated to our network worldwide. Part of that catalog included motorcycles! 8 have been purchased in just the past month because of the funds donated, including a three-wheeled version for one of our disabled preachers in India. Enjoy this results video below, and if you are able, our Motorcycles for Preachers fund is always in need!
We received this update from Democratic Republic of Congo as they have been able to distribute Bibles from funds raised during the Christmas period for Christmas Bibles. Thank you to all who gave!
Glory to God were able to serve these God's people by giving them bibles, God's word into their hands.
With great joy and thanksgiving words, one of theme said; "a part the day I believed in Christ, today is my happiest and glorious day of my life. I have been praying and struggling to have a bible for years, today after my struggling and human efforts, today I have got it freely of charge. This is a God given gift to me. I will read it diligently, Keep it jealously and obey it under the power of his grace. "
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!
I just received word from our man in the Middle East. He wanted to let you all know that all the families have relocated safely. We didn’t lose a single one! This is even though, during the transportation, they were almost literally dodging missile strikes all along the way. Not to mention gunfire, IEDs, and militias.
Oh yeah, in addition to relocating all 600 people, they were also able to squeeze in another seven families (about sixty people) who had befriended our people and asked for deliverance. It reminds me of how, when Moses led the people out of Egypt, others who loved them and their God came along with them. (referred to as foreigners in the Bible)
So, we have successfully transported and relocated nearly 700 of our Family. "To God be the glory, great things He has done"— through you!
I’ll share some fantastic news in the next few weeks. So be looking for the email.
Thanks to a generous donor, we have been able to purchase a delivery truck for our Kenya team, which will allow them to buy in bulk and deliver to the various feeding centers in one trip, saving precious funds, freeing them up to support more!
On the 18th of September they dedicated the truck to the Lord. Four preachers from the four feeding centers that we have came to pray for the ministry and the work that the truck will do.
They prayed for the souls that will get saved through this program, they prayed for those who will be using the truck, they prayed for Final Frontiers for this gift of a truck and they also remembered the sponsors and donors whose hearts are in the ministry here in Kenya and especially the Touch a Life program in Kenya. They prayed for the churches that have been blessed to have this program and they prayed that more churches will be blessed by having the program in their church.
To all of you who prayed and gave for the camping ministry in Pakistan, you should know that your prayers were answered. (Just so you know, we raised the amount needed, plus an extra $21 which was sent on over with the needed funds).
I'm back in America now, but during my last days in Honduras, I received continual reports from Pastor Shaukat telling all about the experience. Each day I received 60-100 photos and videos. Yesterday he wrote saying:
By the grace of God, our youth camp is completed, and my vision is completed through this camp. Two hundred campers were able to join us in this camp, and it was a very blessed time to share the gospel. We divided all the campers into four groups, and every group was led by 12 councilors. During these four days, all the campers and youngsters were given our individual attention. We preached about the lives of four characters, John, Joseph, Jacob, and Samson. The insight into these four characters was very effective for the youth. As a result, eighty youngsters accepted the Lord Jesus Christ, and seventy-five decided to dedicate their lives to spreading the gospel of Christ in the future. I have sent photos and videos.
Young people (actually young adults) came from the nearly two dozen churches Shaukat and his team have started and brought with them a desire to study God's Word, breathe the fresh mountain air, and influence the unsaved friends they brought with them. And they could do all this because of your generous giving.
The camp was delayed because of heavy rains and mudslides, but when the skies cleared, they jumped in the rented busses and escaped the city's crowds, noise, and pollution to roam the wonders of God's creation. Each day they enjoyed great food, games, and study time, and there was time for preaching throughout the day.
At the end of the fourth day, after they gathered for a group photo, most young adults headed for home with Christ in their hearts and a desire to learn more about Him and teach others cemented into their minds. Shaukat, however, did not go home. Instead, he gathered some of these followers of Christ and headed out to the deserts to evangelize more unreached villages. Before arriving home, the new disciples learned how to witness and plant a new church. Now they will enroll in his multiple Bible institutes and be trained as church leaders, church planters, and pastors. And yes, there were female converts, too, but this is a male-dominated society, and the tribal women are a bit shy to be photographed. So here you see the men and boys that accepted Christ.
So, I ask you, was your spiritual and financial investment in winning and training Pakistani young adults in a four-day camp profitable? You bet it was! Thank you for making this possible, and be watching next week when I will pass on to you a need we have for this group in Pakistan.
We wanted to give you an update on how vacation Bible school went in India that you prayed for and supported. While not quite the full amount came in that was needed, $5,376 out of the $5,700 need, the team were still able to accomplish much! Please read below the note from the team and be blessed with the results of your giving and prayers!
Greetings to you in Jesus Name! Hope you are doing well. You have been in my regular prayers and thoughts. I want to thank you for your sacrificial support for holding Vacation Bible School in 27 districts for 4050 children. There were about 2871 children saved. Praise God!
Honestly, it would not have been possible for us to hold VBS without your support. Thank you for your support. You have been in my prayers.
I have also attached a few pictures of the most recent VBS. Hope these pictures may be blessings to you. May God Bless you
