Dear Fellow Laborers, August 2020
We rejoice about all that the Lord has been doing since our last prayer letter in July. God is providing for the purchase of the land for the Center for World Evangelism! In the previous nine months, the Lord has provided over half a million dollars for this purchase! Combined with the funds we already had, we now have $604,784, and several more large donations promised. Thank you so much for praying and giving. Please continue to pray as we need to raise another $1.4 million to pay for the work on the land and construction of dorms, offices, and classrooms. Find out more about what God has done at https://www.worldevangelismcenter.org
One of the many events that will be held at the CFWE will be Impact Weekend. We just finished one of these which we held at our church. I had the privilege of speaking to the young people. We challenged them to pray for the world and go with the gospel into all the world. We had around 50 young people there. Over 30 of them surrendered to be missionaries. Praise the Lord!
Allow me(Josh) to say how much I love and appreciate my family. Each person in our family of five helps in differing ways.Elizabeth and I celebrated 19 years of marriage in July. In August, we celebrate Olivia’s(9) and Joseph’s(14) birthdays. Since passports are taking more time than usual, we will get these younger two their passports soon for the move to Indonesia. Hannah already has hers.
Please thank the Lord with us about four new supporters in July! Please pray with us for seven new supporters in August. We are excited to get to Indonesia soon. Please pray for the Christians there in Indonesia. There are still many regulations regarding Covid-19. Anyone over 60 years of age and under 12 years old cannot go to church. These rules mean that my parents are doing ministry all through digital avenues.
Indonesia has seen 88% fewer foreign visitors than this time last year. This has hurt the economy of the country. What we really want to see is a great increase in the number of missionaries going there. This will help the eternity of many. Please let us know if we can help you or someone you know who is interested in being a missionary. We would be honored to help in any way possible.
Reaching Indonesia for Christ,
Josh, Elizabeth, Hannah, Joseph & Olivia Ewing
PRAISE & PRAY WITH US:
- Praise: 4 new supporters!
