Hope you are all doing great today! It has been a busy week with preparing lessons for [cid:email@example.com] Ephesians 3 and also doing the final check for the translation of the book of Ephesians. I only played a small part in the process but it’s been really great to see how this book developed from its first draft up to where we can now use it as a teachers’ draft and some of our teachers are gaining great reward from reading from Ephesians in their own language. Thanks for supporting us and making it possible for the Mengens to have this GREAT GREAT blessing of God’s message in their mother tongue.
In these days my friend Alex came to me again and shared with me the difficulties he is having with his wife. Her name is Monde and she is an unbeliever and has been holding on very strongly to the deception of her ancestral worship. Alex has often come to me for prayer and advice, and often he even gets sad. I thus added a picture for you guys and ask that you would pray with us for Alex and his wife and that the Lord would make a difference in her life.
Eddie and I hiked to a neighbouring village about 2 hours from us just to go and visit. [cid:firstname.lastname@example.org] (Picture on right.) It was extremely sad for me to meet some of these people. They have never had a Bible in their hands. Just imagine that! I asked them how will they ever get to know the message that God has intended for them in His Word, and they were very puzzled and could not answer me! They said that a local school teacher sometimes teaches them from a book but it’s not the Bible. Even though I have been working amongst these people for many years, I was once again shocked and saddened by the state of these people. The people from this little village have no chance in eternity until we go to them and teach them. My prayer is that they will see the need and welcome us to go to them and settle amongst them and teach them God’s truth.
Keep on praying for us as we reach out to the unreached and thanks so much that we can partner with you guys! Please remember that you guys are playing a vital part in this process and know that we are thanking God for you guys for we know that we are only but a link in this chain!
