In 2017—lives impacted in 8 countries!

pic01pic02pic03pic04pic05 Merry Christmas! I hope this year has been full of peace for you and your family! We are finishing another year of fruitful global ministry! Rejoice with us in the following 2017 ministry results from El Salvador, Peru, India, Pakistan, Kenya, Nepal, South Sudan, and the Philippines, and know that your support & prayers made it all possible!

  • 2,445 public decisions for Jesus Christ!
  • 4,100 church members trained in personal evangelism & follow-up ministry.
  • 8 International Video & Food Event Teams added to our ministry! To each team we provided ministry “kits” containing equipment such as video projectors and screens, Bibles, tracts, rice, and in some places a tricycle moto like the one in the top right photo that we purchased and gave to our team leader in Peru.
  • 6 home churches/disciple groups
  • 800 pounds of rice (and other foods) distributed to hungry people.
  • 260 Bibles in a variety of languages were given to church leaders and new Christians.
  • 50,000 salvation tracts were given to church leaders and all people who attended our events.

In the photos are people you helped us impact for Jesus this year! There is the blind new believer in Indiaeceiving rice, to the family of new Christians in Pakistan receiving their first Bibles, to us ministering to a tribe who lives on the Amazon river in Peru, to the 2 boys bowing their heads in prayer during one of our outreach school programs in El Salvador, to Hindu girls reading our salvation tracts, and so on! Each of these photos show people that you helped us express the love of Jesus to this year—Thank You! Below are a few of the testimonies we received this year because of your generous prayers and support:

Lisa,” a Burmese girl in India who received Jesus at a youth crusade, said, “I am a sinner, now I have Jesus Christ! Thank you for the Bible, I will read it regularly.”Barry,” a Hindu, said, “I believed in Jesus as a prophet only, but I learned that He is a great Son of God!” In Pakistan, “Mark” said, “I have not seen such a great love from God in other religions. I felt peace when I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior!” Then, “Larry” shared these words, “When I realized I was a sinner, I suddenly was shocked and I needed Jesus to be my Lord and Savior!” For next year, God willing, we have plans to conduct outreach & training & food events in at least as many countries as we did this year! Our ministry is more than 35% below meeting our 2017 budget, which greatly impacts what our ministry can do in 2018. If your heart is moved to help us meet our budget with a special Christmas year-end gift, that would be a wonderful Christmas present to our ministry! I still believe in miracles…especially Christmas miracles!

Merry Christmas to You and Your Family!

World Testimonies – “The Great Son of God!”

world-testimonies-01world-testimonies-02world-testimonies-03world-testimonies-04world-testimonies-05
It’s the time of year we celebrate Thanksgiving! Please join me in giving thanks to the Lord for the following people whose lives were recently changed by the Good News of Jesus Christ!

In India one of our E-Video Teams, led by an evangelist who we’ll call “Paul” (for safety reasons), was off and running to go out and reach people with the new equipment kit our ministry provided for him. Using the video projector, and the Bibles, and the rice, and the tracts we printed in their local language, Telugu, Paul showed our video in 4 events. He conducted these events in churches and schools (top 2 photos), where he played and interpreted our video—The Cross! Paul gave rice and salvation tracts to everyone in attendance. Through these events 134 people made public decisions of repentance and faith in Jesus Christ! After turning his life over to Christ, one man said, “I spent my life without Christ. I am addicted to drugs, spending life in agony, but now I repent from my sins and accept Jesus as my personal Savior. I have peace now!” Paul went on to tell us that many youth came forward with tears and surrendered their lives to Christ! Paul summed up his recent video report saying, “God is using the simple video to impact believers and unbelievers!”

Our Pakistan teams are seeing so many lives changed by Jesus that I can only share 2 testimonies in this letter due to space. One man, we will call him “Bill,” said after hearing our video message of Jesus Christ (3rd photo), “I came to learn new things about Jesus Christ. I believed in Jesus as a prophet only, but I learned that He is the great Son of God!” And a woman, “Mary”, said this after accepting Christ, “I used to worship hindu gods but I had no happiness, but when I accepted Jesus I am feeling such a joy I never experienced it before.” Along with these 2 testimonies, 20 other Pakistani people came to Christ last month! Our Pakistan teams also did follow-up for those who decided to follow Jesus, teaching the new Christians how to pray and read the Bible. (“Mike” in 4th photo conducting new believers’ Bible study in secret.) These teams also gave out 36 Urdu Bibles to new Christians (bottom photo), as well as rice to all the people who attended the video events!

Word is spreading in the Philippines of the well-organized evangelistic crusades that our ministry conducts. The church leaders like our focus of mobilizing and training the local churches to do both the pre-crusade personal evangelism and the post-crusade follow-up of each person who makes a decision for Jesus Christ! Next year, we have scheduled 2 major Crusade & School Program projects in different cities in the Philippines! These projects have the potential to not only reach and win thousands of people to Jesus Christ, but also to provide ministry training, and strengthening, for the thousands of Christians involved in the hundreds of churches we are partnering with for these events. Our Asian crusade team, and our various E-Video Teams, thank you for your support and request your continued prayers!

Happy Thanksgiving,

The Most Important Purpose in World History

e-team01When God opens a door, it is open and it cannot be closed! I am happy to share with you that the “door” for our E-Video Team ministry has opened even wider, and our 6th team was added to our growing international video outreach & training ministry! “The gate to the nations is broken, and its doors have swung open to me,” Ezekiel 26:2. God gave me this verse as final confirmation to restart my ministry in May 2011, and this verse is happening in ways I never, ever, imagined!

e-team02Our Pakistan E-Video Team leader, “Mike,” who came to know Jesus a few years ago through our website, was visiting a bookshop months ago to purchase Bibles. While there, he met a Pakistani evangelist we will call “Norman.” As they got to know each other and felt it was “safe” to discuss Christian ministry, Mike told Norman about our video ministry, and how God is using it to both win and train Pakistani people with the Gospel. The result: we added our 2nd E-Video Team in Pakistan led by Norman! Because of the generous support you give to our ministry, we were able to provide Norman with resources to show our video, such as a TV, and salvation tracts, and Bibles, and rice (top photo, people eatine-team03g the Indian rice we gave to them called “Biryani”)! Here is what Norman (in 2nd photo with wife and kids) said after his first video event as a partner in our ministry, “I am amazed to see that 14 people came to accept Jesus, and I never saw this in my previous work that large number of people came to Jesus.” Two weeks later, Norman met with 11 of these new Christians (3rd photo) to assist in their discipleship, and he said about these new believers, “It is their first experience they found happiness inside!”

e-team04Our E-Video Team in India conducted video & food events in 4 villages the past month. The gratitude they express for the equipment and resources our ministry provides to them is real! In the 4th photo notice the joy in their faces as they are in their van on their way to another village to share the Gospel (a box of our salvation tracts are on top of the van). They saw 40 people accept Jesus Christ this month, fed dozens of people with rice, and distributed Bibles to new believers (bottom photo shows women who recently turned to Christ receiving their new Bibles).

Our Event Director in the Philippines, Pastor Lourdman Cabuenos, began 2 months ago mobilizing & training close to 200 churches for our February 2018 Crusade in the capital city of the Philippines—Manila! e-team05This looks to be the largest and most extensive evangelistic & training event we have ever done! By the time the crusade happens, over 8,000 local church members will be trained in personal evangelism and follow-up ministry! And, up to 500 Christians will be trained to be Counselors at the crusade and in the follow-up efforts.

You & I are involved in THE MOST IMPORTANT PURPOSE to ever exist in world history…evangelizing and winning people to Jesus Christ! Nothing you and I do in our lives will EVER come close to having more eternal significance than leading people to Jesus Christ! Thank you for teaming with, and for believing in, this ministry! Together, we are getting it done!

Till He comes…we go,

Houston’s First Baptist Challenge Gift

september-01Exciting reports from across the globe! Let me start with our recent Peru project: August 7th-13th we were in Iquitos, Peru, where we preached the Gospel at 5 Community Crusades, and in 2 private school outreach programs on Drug Awareness (public schools closed due to a spontaneous teachers strike). At our Pastors’ Conference there were 22 church leaders and we shared messages on systematic theology and personal evangelism, and we provided ministry resources to these leaders. In addition, we took the Gospel to tribes who live on the Amazon River (top photo). God moved everywhere we went, and 195 Peruvians turned to Jesus Christ!

september-02God has blessed our new E-Video Team ministry! So far this year, our teams have seen 1,133 people make decisions to follow Jesus Christ! Our E-Teams work with local churches (if any are present) to reach the lost, the hungry, and the poor in slums and villages throughout third-world countries! Along with sharing the love of Jesus Christ, our teams also share basic food like rice (photo right, 200 lb of rice that our India Team distributed to villages of Indian people) to those who attend the events; plus, we also share salvation tracts and, as we are able, Bibles. Here are reports from some recent E-Team Video Events:

INDIA: Our India leader, “Bob,” conducted E-Video Events in numerous Indian villages. Our team gave rice portions and tracts to everyone who came to listen to our video message—september-04The Cross! So far this year, 122 people have received Jesus Christ in these villages! One testimony is from the woman in the third photo, who is blind, holding the bag of rice we gave to her. Bob said, “she is a blind lady…she heard with her ears and accepted Jesus as her personal Savior!” Bob is busy now with the follow-up and giving Bibles to new Christians, and he is preparing future E-Events in more Indian villages!

NEPAL: Our Nepal leader, “Rusty,” conducted our E-Video Events in local Nepalese churches (there are 83 churches in Rusty’s region alone where we plan to conduct video events). Our team gave salvation tracts and snacks to everyone who came to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ! september-03In the 4th photo below, Rusty and his wife pray over 2 ladies they led to Christ during the video event follow-up!

PAKISTAN: Our Pakistan leader, “Mike,” provided snacks and juice to those who attended our E-Events, which are conducted in secret due to the radical Islam in Pakistan. Mike has seen 62 people commit to Christ this year! He regularly meets with the new Christians to teach them the Bible and provide study resources (bottom photo). So far, we have given 50 Bibles to new Pakistani Christians in their language, Urdu, and we plan to purchase and give more!september-05

My home church, Houston’s First Baptist Church, has donated an $11,250 Challenge Gift to our ministry with this challenge to our donors and friends…to not just meet, but to double, their gift! Meeting this challenge will provide $33,750 to our ministry, and will greatly help us develop our E-Event Video Teams ministry…enabling them to continue sharing the Gospel, and giving food, Bibles, and resources, to people living in the most desperate conditions in the world! Meeting this challenge will also help us continue our evangelistic crusade events, church ministry training, drug awareness school programs, Bible & tract distribution, and free transportation to people who attend our crusades. Will you please help us meet this challenge gift? Your special donation can be designated to “Houston’s First Baptist Challenge Gift.” Thank you for your help!

Sincerely,

Peru Amazon Project August 2017

peru01One of my favorite things to do is go to a country I have not been to before to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and add a new country to our global ministry network! I am traveling to the country of Peru for the first time August 7-13th!  We will conduct ministries in Peru like we have in other countries we’ve visited (see photos on right).

peru02One thing Peru is known for is the Amazon River (photo left), which runs through their country. This river is the largest in the world with a length over 4,000 miles, and a width of
120 miles in some places. What a unique experience it will be to—as Jesus told us—be “fishers of men” along the Amazon River!

We will conduct several Community Crusades (such as in India, top right photo, 2012) throughout the region of Iquitos, Peru, which is a part of the “trunk” of the Amazon River. My friend Pastor Mike McGuire from Hobbs, NM, who is fluent in Spanish, will be joining me once again. Together, we will be proclaiming Christ and calling people to repent and come to THE CROSS!

In tandem with these outreach events, we will be taking our Drug Awareness Program into several public schools and universities! We will have the freedom to share the Good News of Christ and invite all the students (like the Uganda students in 2013, second right photo) to say Yes to Jesus! We will also be speaking in a Seminary. We are partnering with The Gideons International of Peru, and we will be giving Bibles to every student we reach (left photo below, Philippine women receiving both Bibles & tracts in their language in 2012)!

peru03On one day of this project we will host a Pastor’s Conference (middle photo, Pastor’s Conference, Haiti, 2011)! Mike will be sharing practical messages about the life and ministry of a pastor. I will do training on personal evangelism (like I did in an underground church in China in 2009, fourth photo right). We will distribute 20,000 salvation tracts in Spanish to the pastors to use in their ministries, and give tracts to every student and person we reach in Peru!

Unique outreaches we are doing will reach tribes who live along the Amazon River area, such as the Chayahuitas tribe in the bottom photo. What a joy it will be to share the love of Jesus Christ with Peruvian tribes of people, and to help them connect with a local church!

If you would like to help send me to Peru to Reach, Win, & Train people with the Gospel, please consider donating a specific contribution at this time to our Peru Amazon Project, August 2017. Your support and prayers are really appreciated—Thank You!

Onward to the Amazon in Peru,
