Letter

” . . . then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”   (John 8:32)

“Hey! There are some people in a big, yellow boat down at the dock and they are trying to get us to do some strange things!” exclaimed our friends. “Like what?” we asked. “Well, they want to give us pills for intelligence and they are trying to give us a type of massage to take the bad-energy out of our bodies.” “Plus,” they continued, “they want to stamp our hands with the ‘sign of the beast’ and they said that if we didn’t get stamped — we couldn’t buy or sell anything here in town! So, we were afraid and came to you to find out the truth. What should we do?!” “Don’t let them do anything to you!” I said, “this is not of God. The Bible says that in the end time false prophets will appear to try to deceive us — these people are false prophets.” “But,” I continued, “Jesus said, ‘I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.’ Continue to study the Bible with us and you will come to know Jesus — you will come to know Truth.”  May we all celebrate Truth this blessed season — Truth that will set us free — Truth that was born in a manger.

PLEASE PRAY:

1. Please continue to pray for my mother. She is still in the Rehabilitation Center and hopes to return home at the beginning of the new year. Pray for her as she continues to recuperate. Pray for my family as we prepare to care for her at home.

2. Continue to pray, also, for the half-way house that our team is helping to build. We are cooperating with some of our friends in this project so that they will have a decent place to stay when they come down the river. Pray for us as we do our part — and pray that our friends will be faithful to do their part. Please pray that God will use this house to bring many people to Him.

3. Please pray for the U people. Most of these semi-nomadic people live in isolation. There are two communities of U people that have become civilized in recent years. Pray that God will use other peoples who have come to know Him to reach this group. Pray that He will give us the opportunity to begin work with these people.

4. Pray for the members of our church planting team. Pray that different conflicts between team members will be resolved so that God can continue to use us. Pray that God will give us wisdom, strength, health and safety as we work together in what He has called us to do.

5. Pray also for the Y people. Historically, most families of Y people have practiced polygamy — with one man having several wives. Pray for our team as we continue to work with these people. Thank God that they have been learning the Biblical Narratives. Pray for them as they take God’s Word in oral form back to their villages in the heart language of their people.

6. Please pray for me as I am on furlough now in Indiana. Pray for the speaking engagements that I will be involved in . . . that God will use what is said for His glory. Pray for travel safety. Pray for me, also, as I help to care for my mother.

Thank you for praying,

Kathy
