Henry Ritchie-Windward Isl Thank you very much for your prayers without which I would not be a missionary. I’m starting to get better. This cancer is harder on me than the last one. Maybe it is just because I’m older now. On Oct 23rd I had my 42nd and last radiation treatment. The doctor told me that my energy should mostly be back by mid December. I’m looking forward to that. Yesterday was my best day in more than a month. But today is not like yesterday. (see quote)

BUT my dad passed away July 27 and now I have cancer. God restored me 12 yrs ago from my first bout and I am believing God for this time as well.

Linu Thankachan, pastor, Bangalore, India. The murder of a religious leader has sparked violent clashes between Hindus and Christians that have killed at least 11 people this week. More than a dozen churches and prayer halls have been torched, a woman was burnt to death, a pastor suffered critical injuries, a nun was raped, several Christians were attacked. Mobs armed with sticks and crude weapons have defied curfew restriction and indulged in arson against Christians.


Church-In-A-Day (CIAD) assists congregations in building new church buildings, all in a single day. With CIAD, a church receives the equivalent of a $100,000 to $250,000 donation, and most importantly, goes from an empty lot to a service-ready sanctuary. CIAD takes a pastor from a storefront to a church building the congregation can be proud of in just 24 hours. The completed church is equipped with a sound system, baptistery, pews, and landscaping, and it seats 125-150 people, putting a congregation years ahead. www.homemissionsdivision.com/ciad.asp


David Kline (Lesotho): At the General Conf of Lesotho Bro. & Sis. M. K. Sartin & group from New Orleans ministered. 54 people were filled with the Holy Ghost including 5 of our Lesotho Pastors’ kids 42 people filled just weeks prior, almost reaching our goal of 100.


Bro Muthus (Malaysia) We received an invitation to visit a 78 yr old Buddhist Taoist monk who wanted prayer who has been involved in customary religious acts of healing. He had a stroke and was paralyzed for a year. We visited and his family gathered around. I asked if He believed in Jesus, He said all his gods had left him and he cried out, “I want to give my life to Jesus.” As we lifted our hands and worshipped, the presence of God fell 5 times and within minutes he was walking around the room glorifying Jesus. We baptized him in the Name of Jesus as his whole family witnessed. Now he is turning those who come to him to Jesus.


Dan Davis (South Africa): A faithful member since the founding of the church told me of a great thing that happened last week. Her son, who occasionally attends our church, was working on a street light. He was on a ladder at the top of the pole and fell. He landed in a standing position and broke his ankle. He told the men at work, “Don’t take me to the hospital just take me to my mom and she will pray.” They did. She prayed and when his boss (another member of our church) came to check on him the next day he was up and ready for work - no pain and no broken bones!!!!!    God is awesome.

Jim Crumpacker (Kenya):  Thank all of you who prayed for the crusade in Burundi. The altar workers from the local churches obtained 697 names of people who claimed to have received the Holy Ghost for the first time. Several were delivered of demonic spirits and we had quite a few testimonies of physical healings. The crusade also opened a door to teach leaders and pastors of other organizations on our next trip that we plan to follow up on.

 Albert Stewart / Liberia  From Fassama Mission we traveled 200 miles.  It took us 15 hours due to the deplorable road conditions.  In 60 miles in the rain forest we counted 54 bridges.  Most of them had to be repaired before crossing.  However, when we arrived in Baloma, the saints were very excited to see us.  The conference was great.  The attendance was about 700. Some had walked two full days to get to the conference.  We had 8 filled with the Holy Ghost and 12 baptized in Jesus Name.  Many testified of being healed and revived.
