Over 70 kids and 50 adults came to our outreach in northern Thailand next to a massive Buddhist temple Saturday. Many received Christ but most importantly we began our process of planting house churches, baptizing them
And helping them to understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. What a huge day! In this part of the world, those are huge numbers to come out to hear about Jesus. The area is very resistant and closed to these things but we are seeing the seeds of revival. Praise God. 21 churches planted. Over 300 former Buddhist coming to Christ. Bible school planting here and our school of missions to send Asians to Asian nations and the Middle East (also part of of Asia) where we will send them after they finish our training. Amazing times we are living in.
At least one person was killed and several were injured Sunday in an attack on the inauguration of a Greek Orthodox church in Syria’s Hama Governorate. 😢
There are reports of one or two deaths from the attack, and as many as 12 wounded. 😢
"God may allow His servant to succeed when He has disciplined him to a point where he does not need to succeed to be happy. The man who is elated by success and cast down by failure is still a carnal man. At best his fruit has a worm in it.
God will allow His servant to succeed when he has learned that success does not make him dearer to God nor more valuable in the total scheme of things."
-- A.W. Tozer in Faith Dares to Fail

Urgent appeal for prayers and help for dear friends in India and Pakistan after severe flooding. https://christsmandate.blogspot.com/2022/07/emergency-appeal-for-flood-relief-for.html
Why does the underground church of China continue to grow? How did it survive through the harshest years of communism?
"They did not depend on a centralized structure. Any believer could plant a church, preach, and baptise others. In this way they could multiply in secret. Also, strong organisations are easy to target. You can destroy their buildings, freeze their assets and arrest their leaders, but a church that does not depend on buildings, bank accounts or a hand-full of leaders, is very hard to control."
After more than 22 years on the mission field, I use this podcast to share the ONLY thing I have found to measure of success in the ministry....
Sentenced to death for saying that he is a follower of Jesus. 🙏
Please don’t forget to pray for the orphans in China. Because of Covid no international adoptions are moving forward and there are many children waiting for parents and a loving home. 😰😰😰😰😰 they are on my hearts every day. Some little children even had parents arriving to be pick them up and bring them home.... when suddenly the China wall went up and no one could come in to pick them up anymore until Covid restrictions are lifted. Those children have been waiting ever since. Those parents are besides themselves waiting to come get them! Please pray the hearts can be turned soon to opening back up the roads for adoption. And that the people of God could also have moved hearts towards providing homes for children who have been abandoned and are suffering every day without a family.
Please pray for my mother and her husband, Dick and Roxane. They both went into the hospital today.
Dick is not at all well, he has liver failure and kidney failure and is very sick. He is swollen and jaundiced, blood count is a quarter of what it should be, and they are giving him blood right now.
Please pray for grace at work, as I try to take off work again for family emergency.
Please pray for a place for me to live closer to them, for God’s grace strength and help, and for salvation for both of them (they are both 80).
Thank you so much for praying.
