Letter

SEPTEMBER 2011

” . . . be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6: 10-12)

“I almost didn’t come back to the Bible Storying Training today,” said D as we talked. “Why?” I asked her. “Well, I had a dream last night,” she replied, “and in the dream a dark figure told me to not come back here because what you are teaching is not the truth.” I listened intently as she continued. “But, then I remembered what I learned in the Bible Training: that God is the only, true God and that His Word does not lie—His Word only tells the truth. I know that it was Satan in my dream telling me to not come back to the Bible Training. Satan doesn’t want me to learn about God. But, I came anyway. . . . . . I don’t want to listen to Satan.” Pray that God will strengthen D as she takes a stand against the devil’s schemes.

Please pray:

1. Thank you for praying for the Bible Storying Training Classes that were held September 4-10, as well as the Classes that were held October 2-8. Please pray that God will bring people to us who should participate in future training sessions. Pray, also, that the participants will have a serious commitment to the training and faithfully attend the sessions. Pray that God will give our team members wisdom and patience to lead the training. Pray for us as we schedule several different sessions of the training per day in order to work around classes and other responsibilities of the participants. Pray for the Bible Storying Training Classes that will be held October 30-November 5.

2. Please pray for the work in this region as we struggle with spiritual warfare. Satan is very astute as he tries to get us to focus on the problems that we encounter, instead of the One who can solve the problems.

3. Pray for a river trip that our team is planning to take to a village. We have received authorization from one of the officials in charge. However, there are new officials who will also have to approve the trip. Pray that we will receive permission to make the trip, that we will be able to teach basic hygiene measures to the people and that we will have an opportunity to share the Gospel.

4. Pray for a Training Center that is being constructed to reach young men of six people groups in this region. These fellows come down the river to study in the public schools. The Center will provide housing, a place to study and a place for them to learn about God and His Word. Pray for us as we are already working with some of these fellows. Pray that they will have a desire to know God and obey His Word. Pray that God will use us as instruments of His grace in the lives of these young men.

5. Please pray for our team members. Pray that God will give us wisdom, strength, health and safety as we work together in what He has called us to do.

Thank you for praying,

Kathy
