Update - January 7, 2008
Greetings and love to all our friends!
Bess and I will be leaving Alaska for a four-month
missions trip in just eight days...hardly
seems real that it is that time once
again! Seems like yesterday we were
in South Africa...
This is the first of updates I will be sending
you during our travels; it's important to
us that you go along and experience the joys
we know await us and meet the wonderful people
along the way.
Our journey will take us first to Kuala Lumpur,
the capital city of Malaysia. That
has been "headquarters" to me for
many years, and the lovely Christian people
I met there so long ago have always been
special to my heart as they have given us
shelter and opened so many doors for ministry
to us for over a decade. I can tell
you that the Malaysian Christians are doing
such a fantastic job of spreading the Good
News all over Asia. It's exciting to
me to know the Gospel is reaching into every
village as well as the large cities despite
their hardships and great sacrifices.
Won't be long in KL, however. We leave
for India a week after we arrive in Malaysia
and will be there almost a month. Then on
to Sri Lanka, Singapore, Australia, and Borneo
before we return home in early May--a solid
four months of constant travel and
ministry. We covet all your prayers
while we are gone...especially in Sri Lanka,
as that country has been on my list of "must
go" places for many years. The
doors have finally opened.
Once again Bess Graham is my travel companion
and helper in the ministry--for the 3rd time.
How powerfully God has used her testimonies
and preaching! God has given me one
of the very best I could ever hope for; she
has been a joy to travel with and I can't
thank the Lord enough for sending her to
join me. Not only is she highly anointed,
she is a prayer-warrior deluxe, and that
is so essential to have someone agreeing
in prayer for all our needs and protection.
Jesus sent his disciples out two-by-two for
that very reason, and it certainly has proven
great wisdom to me personally. Many
thanks to her church in Louisiana for
helping to send her with me. Melanie Yap, who also has travelled
with me for many years, will be coming to
India also and my long-time friends, Catherine
Yeoh and her husband will also come along with
Melanie--their first time to that nation.
Friends, our world is in chaos and on the
horizon there are many things that bring
worrisome thoughts to our minds, but it is
the constant reminder of our Lord's presence
that keeps us from fear and our ship steady through
every storm. For those of you experiencing
sickness, disease, financial and family problems,
remind yourself of His faithfulness.
He's closer to us than our very breath and
always hears our cries. Our prayers
for you is that the days ahead will bring
you much joy and peace as your receive that
love into your life!
God bless each of you who have made trip
trip possible with your support and
prayers, thank you again and again.
