From Your Hands to Theirs  Have you ever thought about how many hands it takes to provide a copy of the Holy Scriptures to an individual? First of all, it took the hands of prepared, knowledgeable, and dedicated believers to take on the tremendous responsibility of translating the scriptures.  To continue reading the update from the Ingalls family and Couriers for Christ, please click on the link below.

The Philppines is officially known as having the longest and strictest lockdown in the world.  Unfortunately, the COVID cases have spiked and continues to spike every day (upwards of about 9,000 new cases--mostly due to viral variants).  As a result, more lockdowns have been imposed including the prohibition of religious gatherings.   To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click the link below.

Sometimes our heart thopes for things that are good things/ things that are God's will or things that we believe to be God's will.  Sometimes our hopes increase because of the circumstances that surround us.  You know, we can see things coming together!  At the beginning of January, it seemed as if things were "coming together."

In the book of Luke, Christ was admonishing His disciples about the last days.  Men's hearts would fail in fear; the earth would have distress of nations.  There would be perplexity on every side.  Sound familiar?  But, we cannot let our focus get too horizontal.  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click the link below.

We were so hoping that 2021 would prove to be a better year than 2020; however, it hasn't started off that way.  We started this year with our church being closed down again.  From just before Christmas until two weeks ago we were back to preaching online.  We have been able to open our church again however, only 10% of our seating capacity has been allowed to attend church.  This pestilence of Covid-19 needs to go away!

We give praise and honor the the Lord for the privilege to have ministered to and with His precious servants: two of our long-time Zambian friends have recently entered into the presence of the Savior.  Brother M.J. Silwamba and Sister Angela Moyo were special blessing in our lives - and they are truly trophies of God's grace. To continue reading the update from Pat Gordon, please click on the link below.

We are so thankful that since February 21, we have been able to meet in our church again. We are also thankful that we were able to meet for six weeks in the social hall rented by our mission.  Since returning to services in our building, our attendance has gone up to 176 despite not running our buses and having about 50 members still not attending because of Covid.  We are still having two services, but if all the adults were together, every seat in the auditorium would be filled.

Back in 2017 we were privileged to hold a campaign with Missionary Nico Verhoef in three German-speaking countries.  We were in Konstanz, Germany; St. Gallen, Switzerland; and Dornbirn, Austria.  Through the generosity of all of you and the Bearing Precious Seed ministry of Milford, Ohio, we were able to provide 10,000 German Bibles for Nico.  To continue reading the update from Couriers, please click on the link below.

It is hard to believe this is our 2nd furlough in 15 years.  It has been 8 years since we have taken a furlough.  The business of ministry and then Covid-19 hit moving our plans.  We have come to realize that, man plans but God directs, and the the circumstances of providence are the tracks we run on.  To continue reading the update from Chris Eckels, please click the link below.

Praise the Lord for His perfect plans.  God's ways are not our ways.  Our family had plans to return to Cambodia right after Thanksgiving, however God saw fit that we spend another month in the States.  (God new that we needed the rest and the spiritual renewing!)  Because of COVID, there were so many things that had to fall into place, and God began to work things our each step of the way.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click on the link below.

This last weekend God gave safety to all of us traveling to Kampot for the funeral. Some of Nay's family are Christians, but the Buddhist family members demanded a Buddhist funeral.  However, they did allow us time to have a Christian service for him.  We say a number of positive results.
