Dear Family, Friends and Partners,
I got back from my last trip to Sri Lanka over a month ago now, doesn't seem possible that it could be that long, but then it took me over a week to recover and get my internal clock reset. Montana is exactly half way around the world from Sri Lanka. I was really tired after this one maybe because I ended up ministering fourteen times in just ten days encouraging, teaching and equipping believers in the Word and Spirit of God. More than once I didn't even know that I was going to preach until I was introduced to the people assembled, talk about being put on the spot! I also taught two one hour sessions at two AFCM Ministers' Meetings. Our first AFCM Meeting was held in the mountain tea growing area of Hatten, where we had over fifty Senior Pastors and twenty associates. The second AFCM Meeting was in the capital city of Colombo where we had over eighty Pastors assembled. The majority of the ministers present at these meetings have had little exposure to the Word of faith teaching that most of us have been hearing and doing now for decades. They came to taste and see and left with a strong desire to have more so they can teach the people in their Churches these same truths.
I was also there to help Pastor Benedict Fernando get the ball rolling on the registration of AFCM in Sri Lanka. At the two AFCM Ministers Meetings I introduced Pastor Benedict as the new AFCM National Director for Sri Lanka. The news was received very positively and we look forward to working closely with Pastor Benedict as we teach, equip and train pastors to go and teach others also and gather the harvest among the twenty million people of Sri Lanka. But it's not just the people of Sri Lanka, Pastor Benedict has connections with Tamil speaking Pastors in Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel, Pakistan and Australia.
June is heating up in more ways then one, spring has finally arrived in mile high Butte and our traveling schedule is showing signs of new life. We now have meetings in Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri on our way to and from the AFCM Family Reunion Convention. On June 22nd we will be at Full Faith Christian Center in Chariton, IA then it's on to the Family Reunion where we have been honored with an hour to speak on missions to the body of AFCM Ministers. On June 29th we're in Savage, MN ministering at Three Rivers Church and from there we head south to West Plains, MO were we will be speaking at Journey Church Ozarks on July 6th. We'll be back home in Butte in time for our
our nephew's wedding and then we'll be ministering at Zoe Bible Church in Billings, MT and preparing for a trip to India.
In India we will in essence be doing the same thing we just did in Sri Lanka. Appoint a National Director and begin the official registration process for AFCM India. India is actually further along in the process as we've had four video Bible Schools there for years already. We have over three hundred graduates that know the Word and have experienced what it means to have fellowship with one another and they tell me they want more. More meetings so they can get together, learn from each other, encourage one another and more Bible School. They are asking for the second tier of the video Bible School. But it's not just India being impacted with the Word, some of our graduates have connections in Bangladesh and Pakistan. Noah Bower, our primary contact for India is preaching right now in the island nation of Trinidad where their are many English speaking Indians wanting the AFCMITC video Bible School. These Trinidad Indians have Hindi speaking contacts in other Caribbean, South American and African nations as well as in England and Australia. Seems like a large section of the World can be reached through English, Hindi and Tamil speaking people originally from India and Sri Lanka! Let's help them do It!!!
Please partner with us in prayer! Pray for these English, Hindi and Tamil speaking ministers to teach and equip others to bring the harvest in from the the "ends of the earth." Pray for Liz and I to continue to be in the right place at the right time with the right people to make these kind of connections that can influence multitudes for the Kingdom of God. And please pray for the finances needed to take these trips to do this kind of ministry.
