The last six weeks have been full of ministry on the West and East Coasts along with international work in Asia. The following is a quick review:
Washington: Our cross cultural work included a month of ministry in Seattle, Washington. I served primarily in two churches: Grace Slavic Baptist and Golgotha Baptist. I preached in their services, taught weekly youth meetings, and conducted a college course on "The Life of Joseph." I also worked with training the leadership of these congregations and met with many families for counseling. Lorri taught a ladies Bible study and held sessions for the mothers and young women.

I participated in the dedication and ground-breaking service of a new church building for Golgotha Baptist. This congregation has been without a church building for nearly two years because an arsonist destroyed their previous facility. We ministered in many other churches in the Seattle area and also taught chapel in a Russian Christian school. One highlight from our time in Seattle was witnessing the restoration of a local church through the preaching of God's Word. Praise the Lord!

Belvoir Baptist Church
From Seattle, we traveled to North Carolina to encourage a local church in their work for the Lord. This church has a young couple as their pastor and pastor's wife. Our goal was to be an encouragement to this couple and to minister in their congregation. We had a half week of Revival meetings and the altar on the final night was full.

While it is illegal to preach in restricted access nations, we have authority from Jesus Christ to do so when He said for us to "Go" (Matt. 28:18). Our work is in partnership with Dr. Christian Wei and Dr. Eddie Wang. While in Asia, I met with an underground church. Some of the members are receiving hardship because of their commitment to Christ. I also traveled to our new training site. This location has a school that helps us greatly in various other ministries as well. The men leading this operation have all been trained by Dr. Wei, and the ladies teaching in the school are all graduates of Eucon International University in Saipan. I am excited to report that o
ur network of Gospel ministries in these restricted access countries is multiplying rapidly. In the last 10 years, we have had 246 graduates from our training program; this year we will have over 100. Please pray for safety for all involved in this vital outreach.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share God's Word across America and around the world! Thank you for your prayers and partnership in ministry. I do currently have a need for finances for one of my remaining overseas ministries.
