Pray for our Pastor who has Covid-19
Dear Fellow Laborers,
Our hope is only in the Lord. Our hearts are heavy as I write this email. Please pray for our Pastor, who has Covid-19 and has been put on a ventilator. He was also diagnosed with double pneumonia. His oxygen levels were very low when he went to the emergency room. He is stable at this time, but pray that he will be able to get off of the ventilator and make a complete recovery. Sis. Betty, our Pastor’s wife, also has the virus. She is being treated at home and is doing much better now.
As we continue to pray for our Pastor, we look forward to seeing God work through this time. I had not imagined that the effects of this virus would be felt by so many churches all over the world. The work must still go on through this. God has not left us. We are still safe in Him. We do not know all the turns that will come our way in this life, but we do know the end of the story. We are victors through all of this.
One of the ways to continue through the difficult times is to continue with all that we can do for the cause of Christ. We must stay close to the Lord through the trials. We do not need to stop everything, because we can’t do all that we normally do. More people need to be reached with the Gospel. Those new believers must be discipled. Then those believers need to be trained to do ministry. I am thankful for the training that I have received. The Center for World Evangelism is a wonderful place to train people to be missionaries. We have been asking God to raise up the funds needed to purchase land for the training center.
There will be a golf tournament on July 21, 2020. The entry fee is $150, and all proceeds will go towards buying the land for The Center for World Evangelism. God has provided $506,000. We need another $134,000 before July 31 to make the land’s payment. You can contact me or go to this web address for more information: http://www.worldevangelismcenter.org/golf/ . Please come out and join the fun either as an individual, form a team, or multiple teams. There will be a putting contest, closest to the pin, long drive, and hole-in-one prizes, as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes. I hope to see you there.
Reaching Indonesia for Christ,
Josh, Elizabeth, Hannah, Joseph & Olivia
