The Power of Truth

"Jesus therefore was saying to those Jews who had believed Him,
"If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine;
and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free""
(John 8:31-32 (NASB)).

Dear Prayer Partners,

group MalawiWhy travel across the world and teach God's Word? God made it clear very early in this ministry that He wanted me to teach overseas and that He would provide what was needed.

He has given me many excellent opportunities (many more than I could handle), vast teaching resources, good health, family support and sufficient finances to persist in this valuable ministry.

God's Purpose

Having crisscrossed the world numerous times, I can see God's purposes for it all: First, the response to Biblical teaching is so much greater in these countries than in the West. Secondly, their need is much greater. I still remember these words from Malawi and Kenya, that haunt me: "No one has ever taught us about marriage before."

Third, we find it to be a strategic investment in God's kingdom, not only in terms of God's Word, but in terms of time and finances. smileMoney goes so much further there. Fourth, these nations and subcultures are, by and large, new to hear the Word of God. Within the last thirty years or so have come to know the Lord and therefore require much more ‘babying' in terms of providing focused teaching.

This will be my second trip to both Malawi and Ethiopia. Each has etched special scenes and sounds on my mind. I have one busy week left before I take off. I seek your prayer and financial support. I will be giving about 40 different planned messages, each about 90 minutes long (though translated).

Praise God!
