Some limited freedom to worship exists but this may diminish. Two churches were
attacked by the militants during the past few months. 17 were martyred in
Bahawalpur with 5 more on March 17th. President Musharraf is doing his best to
handle the situation, pray for him.

Flooding in their village gave us opportunity to help by filling sandbags and
securing the river bank. We worked for a few hours with more than a 1000 men and
they treated us afterwards like kings. We even ate "plov" together

Worker in N. Africa
tragically killed on road.
He had only been married for 19 months, and his loss has had a profound shock on
all those who knew him. Please pray especially for his wife and family, and for
the team as they adjust to life without him. At least 120 people packed into a
thanksgiving service in the town where he worked. Most of these were local
Muslims, ranging from the mayor to the poorest of the poor, all having been
touched by his life. In Islam, there is no assurance of salvation and death is
marked with laments and wailing, and efforts to help the deceased into Paradise
by prayers and reciting the Qur’an. Can you imagine the impact on the hearts
of these precious people as they witnessed the faith of his friends, and their
celebration of his life, which truly was lived to the full? Pray with us for the
seeds planted on that day to take root and grow, that souls will be saved.

We are opening up in a new village, Las Colinas, in a sister’s home and we
have got some land to build a prayer house, we just need the materials. Recent

Most of the Christians that I am pastoring are very poor from the slum area, who
used to live on alcohol and prostitution. With the capital that they have been
given, poor widows have started businesses to live on and are now forgetting of
the old ways which drew them away from God. My wife also got some capital. We
now earn our daily bread and I can go to Bible College to study.

Thirty Chinese Christian
At first it was thought to be a massive government raid but it now seems that
members of the Eastern Lightning cult posed as leaders of a Bible Institute in
Singapore and offered free training to house-church leaders. So the leaders went
to meetings in six locations inside China. Eastern Lightning believes Jesus has
returned as a Chinese woman named Lightning. Even though they are a violent and
dangerous cult, the government appears to do nothing to halt them.

Training to disciple
We are training the first two Eritreans from an Eritrean mission as well as an
Egyptian family and Koreans. Two missionaries from Lesotho were with us for six
weeks, others come from Asia and Africa, each brings a certain richness, as well
as a strangeness we can learn from. We have cried to the Lord to keep our
training sharp and relevant and He has been speaking to us about the most basic
of all principals, that of making disciples.

We have had a couple of good visits with Fulani believers from Djibo and Sebba.
The believers here all seem to have been encouraged by them and one lady has
since given her life to Christ. There is still a lot of work to do to follow up
but it is an encouragement. The evangelism in Seytenga went well. A good time of
sowing, and some good chats - especially with an islamic teacher and his
disciples. Pray that the word continues to work,

Madman OK, fine in brain,
dressed and happy.
One week ago a man came from Nigeria claiming that God directed him to Lira
where he had no connection with anybody. He went to a school and asked to stay
there. On the same day he came across Otim who is well known in town as a man
with a brain problem. He is completely mad for 30 years. He arrested Otim and
cast out the demons of madness from him. God delivered Otimn instantly and he is
now OK, fine in the brain, well dressed and happy. So many people are turning to
God as result and there is no one who is challenging this miracle. the Nigerian
has rented a guest house where he has put more 9 mad people in 3 different
rooms, one for the mad ladies, another one for the mad men and the last one for
the mad children. God is delivering this people miraculously. Glory be to our
God I am standing with him.

"I could have settled for an easy pastorate in Bangui, the capital",
he said, "but I felt God's call to the unreached Pygmy people." He has
now mastered the Pygmy language and is able to preach in their dialect.
"The breakthrough came when a Pygmy lady died and the witchdoctor failed to
make her better through his magic. I felt the Lord urging me to pray for her to
come back to life. I prayed and she rose from the dead! This event broke the
power of the witchdoctor and many began to follow Jesus."
