Praise the Lord!
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you, dear partners, for your prayers and partnership. We are praying for your families and for your country. By the grace of God, my family and I are doing well. God has kept us safe.
Last month, our daughter suffered with pneumonia. She was admitted in the hospital for three days. Now, my daughter is fine. Please pray for both of our children to stay healthy and grow in Lord.
Last month, I had the opportunity to visit a church in a village and share the Word of God with the people there. The church is 15 km from town. It is in a large village. The church I visited used to be filled with new believers, but now it was not full. I talked with the local pastor about the decreased number of believers. He said that since the persecution stared, many people have stopped coming to church. Please pray that the new believers will grow strong in their faith.
Our second semester at CBI started after Christmas break. Now the students are being taught 1&2 Samuel, Ezra & Nehemiah, the Gospel of Luke, Acts, Romans, and 1&2 Corinthians. The students are enjoying learning these books.
I am teaching 1 & 2 Samuel, and have just finished teaching 1 Samuel. I learned so much from 1 Samuel while teaching it. I especially learned from the lives of Samuel, Saul, Jonathan, and David. I am excited to learn more from 2 Samuel and to teach it to the students. Please pray for me to have godly wisdom, and understanding, and that I will be guided by the Holy Spirit as I prepare to teach the book.
- Please pray for my children to grow in the fear and knowledge of the Lord.
- Please pray that the Lord will intervene in the problems the world is facing.
- Please pray for our village ministry. May the believers grow in the Word of the Lord.
- Please pray for the CBI students to grow in God’s Word.
