"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." - Acts 1:8
Dear Faithful FIPartners,
I have received the IV Quarter 2016 Written Reports from you Vietnamese Missionary Bro. Lau Mang.
Be Blessed as you read the his reports and view his pictures. I am including information from Bro. Hoang because he writes about and sends pictures of the awful flooding they have experienced recently. It has destroyed their Spring Vegetable crops and it will be May before they there will be any rice to harvest. They are distributing what relief they can from their meager fare. Any additional help would be appreciated.
I am also including some ministry pictures from Bro. Mai Du, our Senior Missionary in the Cham ethnic group area.
In spite of the in climate monsoon weather, they still evangelized in 28 villages, established 16 new House-Church/Home Bible Study Groups and witnessed 47 professions of faith!
We have sad news from Bro. Mang Luong. Jonathan was just informed that he has stage 4 cancer and will not be writing any more reports. He has been very faithful in his Evangelism Outreach, discipleship training and in sending good reports every quarter with pictures of his ministry with the new cell phone we purchased for home while visiting in his home about two years ago.
Good News on our Bible Shipment Project for Myanmar: We now have $5,415 in hand with more promised. The 10,000 Burmese Whole Bibles (Adoniram Judson's Translation) are scheduled to be printed and shipped by late June along with thousands of Burmese John/Romans Scripture Portions and Burmese Gospel Tracts. The total cost of shipping these donated Bibles is $12,000 - $15,000. We'll keep you posted with more exact figures as they are available. We are pursuing two possible venues of shipment.
Your Missionary to the 10/40 Window,
P.S. I leave for Vietnam and Myanmar March 2nd for Accountability and Pastor-Training purposes and will appreciate your prayers. I could "hand-carry" any additional "relief" to those needy brothers and sisters in Christ in VN.
