Though hotly debated and protracted beyond a reasonable period, we are thankful that the Kenya elections were relatively peaceful.  There were claims and counterclains of rigging and corruption.  It seems at this time, although the winning candidate won with just a small percentage, the country has accepted the outcome and is ready to get on with their lives.

August 23rd is quickly approaching - the day of our departure to Cambodia.  Furlough is coming to a close, and we will be returning with two more individuals than we left with.  Our son, Christopher, after speding his freshman year in Bible college will be returning to the field for a year.  It will be nice to be together as a family again.  Also, we are excited about Joy Zdziarski, a young lady from Illinois, who will be teaching several of our church's young people in our growing Christian school.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click on [...]

So many times, it is what some may call "small things" that God uses to accomplish much for His Glory!  God is answering prayer and doing many things around the globe. In the South Pacific, the David Smith family, serving in New Zealand, received their residency visas!  What a relief for them to no longer go through a yearly application process that consumes large amounts of time, strength, and resources.  This is no small thing.

Jan flew out last Monday evening and her mother passed away while Jan was en route.  The funeral was on Thursday in Greenville and the family felt it went well and that mom and her Lord were honored.  Our son, Ed, and his family were able to be at the funeral and Jan enjoyed being with four of our grandkids for a couple of days.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

We are finally home long enough to write an updated prayer letter.  We have been blessed with a very busy schedule this year.  What a privilege it is to serve our Saviour and teach His Word! My model trains have been very busy also this year.  We used them for a train revival in Northern Wisconsin and in several Vacation Bible Schools.  To continue reading the update from Dave Barker, please click on the link below.

The last few weeks have been a real blessing!  We had a family conference the end of July.  It started on a Friday night and went through Sunday.  To prepare the grounds, we had a couple of work days where we did some deep cleaning, repaired a wall, and stained the pews and pulpit.

God is our help and our shield (Psalm 33:20).  As many of you know, a van that we had rented for our trip to camp blew a tire, control was lost due to some other issues with the steering, and after hitting the burn of the edge of the highway, our van rolled over several times.  God protected us in a wonderful way and only I received the brunt of the collision.  The 14 boys with me in the van climbed out through the windows with barely a scratch.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click on the [...]

We only had half the normal attendance at our Married Student's Bible Study on Friday night, due to sickness and work schedules.  Jan taught on Psalm 23 and I taught the men about resolving conflicts in ministry.  That's a pretty big subject of one hour, but I was able to give them an overview of some common scenarios.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

Just as the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork, so are we to be faithful to declare His glory.  We are to display and manifest the glory of God among those who have not heard or have not heard with hearts disposed to follow.  To continue reading the update from Gary Ashley, please click on the link below.

Since planting Victory Baptist Church, a little over eight years ago, Joy and I had lived in the same apartment.  One evening out of the blue, our landlord came by and told us we needed to plan on moving.  She said they were going to let a construction company use the building we lived in as a dormitory for their workers.  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click on the link below.

The translators continue working diligently on the new Swahili translation.  This work can sometimes become very tiresome as they continue to understand better what the Greek and English versions say and to find the correct Swahili words to use.  As the process continues, it has become more evident of the need for a new translation.  To continue reading the update from Robert Mickey, please click on the link below.

A little over one year ago we heard that Missionary Johnny Leslie was turning over his church in Varazdin to Missionary Ron Winkler.  Brother Johnny felt led to go to Split and start a new church in that city of over 180,000 souls where there is no Bible preaching church.
