“Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever, to Him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.”
November 16, 2008
As Thanksgiving arrives we want to say how thankful we are to our Lord Jesus Christ for the great wonders He has done through MINTOR MINISTRY this year. We are also thankful for each one of your and your prayers and support. As we ponder this past years busy work, we are awed at the privilege we have had to share His truth and His love with so many in five different countries. The unspeakable joy of giving out the Holy Word to those who have been praying for it is so precious. Here are a few capsules of this years mission work:
- There were:
- There were 275 decisions for accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior
plus hundreds of other recommitments.
- There were 5472 Bibles given in 16 different languages or
- There were 3997 pastors and their wives plus some leaders who
registered at 23 different seminars in the 5 countries.
- There were around 300 pairs of reading glasses given out.
- There were around 450 neckties and 450 scarves given as gifts.
Thanks to those who give to this ongoing need.
- There were many excellent study Bibles and Christian books given as gifts.
- There were approximately 24,000 Bible Study seminar notes given in each Countrys native language.
- There was several thousand dollars given from designated donors
to help the Kenyans in their time of disaster after the country
Only in heaven will we know the real life changing impact
His Divine Word had on the thousands who attended the seminars.
We are grateful to those of you who included MINTOR MINISTRY in your end of the year giving. The returns of your investment have multiplied (unlike the stock market). We anticipate a great year in 2009.
We ask you to pray for:
The huge job of putting the seminars on power point.
The success of Deanna’s knee surgery November 24th.
The finalizing of dates and schedules for 2009.
Continued wisdom and spiritual understanding
as we prepare materials from Gods Word.
Continual provision for Bibles and for the Bible Seminars
in the Outer Regions of the World.
For the new believers in East Asia and Africa.
For the ones who attended the Bible Seminars to obey
Our prayers for you is what the Apostle Paul prayed for the Thessalonians in 2 Thess. 1.11 “…we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.” We cherish your prayers and want you to know how thankful we are for you. Without your partnership with us, this ministry would not be possible. This is a unique God-led, spirit filled, Biblically based, faith ministry that exists to honor and glorify our Lord Jesus Christ. Someone asked us how long we were going to do this ministry and we answered as long as the Lord tells us to do it. We sometimes feel like the “energizer bunny” that just keeps going and going. But we differ in that our strength and energy comes from the Lord. Colossians 1.29 “To this end I labor, struggling with all His energy, which so powerfully works in me.” Thanks be to God for His all sufficient power.
