We have at least 18,645 Christians
with us . .
They are in 10 areas, 25 pastors and 78 evangelists, this is the fruit
of the evangelism. I ask you if you can provide us the 85
diploma level studies because that is also very important for us. Now the war is getting over, we need men of God to help heal the
wounds through the word of God, crusades, training, etc. It is in this
aim that Word of Life for All People Ministry has been founded few
months ago. Please assist Burundi to bring revival in it because many
souls have gone astray due to war and other kinds of wickedness.

Millions of people live in slavery
We encourage former slaves by providing links to training, financial and
spiritual support. Slavery did not end with Lincoln's Emancipation
Proclamation during the American Civil War. We need your help to educate
the public about modern slavery. This is a problem that concerns every
free man and woman in the world. We encourage you to examine our site
and learn about modern slavery. Make this tragedy a part of your
political and social life. Drag this crime out into the bright light for only by talking about it can we defeat it.

In India 23rd July- 6th August.
I shall be preaching in the city of Nazareth in Tamil Nadu, and later in conjunction with the drama 'Heaven's Gates, Hell's
Flames' in Madurai, as well as teaching and preaching in
other churches. I shall also be visiting the orphans that we support. I
would very much value your prayers, especially at this increasingly
uncertain time in India. It is a nation on the threshold, and it could
just as easily fall into chaos or revival!
John Fergusson, England.
With many thanks . .
For all the effort you make, the work and the love to keep us together
around the world through these pages. Every day the Lord encourages
me through the messages, I am growing through the studies
and getting ready to respond to His call to the nations. May God
continue to pour his grace and power through this ministry. You have
no idea nor can you imagine the blessing of being able to count on you.

Vision for Rwanda . . .
EASR is an evangelical association created in Rwanda in 2000 by
Christians from different churches, after an evaluation of many problems
faced by the population - war, climatic condition, earthquake, flooding,
epidemics, economic crises, bad life condition, faith confusion caused
by different doctrines of different churches etc. All these problems and
others make the life of people miserable and also make them lose hope.
Our plan includes the construction of a HQ, a missionaries’ school, a
printing place, a music studio, sending missionaries, organising
crusades and seminars, construction of hospitals, dispensaries and
workshops. We welcome help from churches all over the world.
Rev. Aera Amiel, Kigali, Rwanda.

A month of mission in the USA.
Our team from several Latin American countries has just finished a month
working with the Hispanic Baptist Church in Hampton Roads, Norfolk,VA.
This is a hard town for Hispanic people to settle in, but the Lord was with
us and we managed to contact 170 of them. We took the gospel to about
50 of whom 40 accepted Jesus as Lord. The Baptist Convention has a
passion for this part of the USA and have established new churches here.

You've heard of the 10/40 Window but how
about the 70/40 Window ?
The 70/40 window encompasses Western and Eastern Europe, the top of Turkey
and across the central Asian countries, including Mongolia to Japan. It
might include the Silk Route, but the emphasis is a focus on Revival in
Europe. All the facts from: www.targeteurope.org

The story of the church in Vetovo, NE
The population is 4,500 - Bulgarians, Turks, Gypsies and Tartars. Most
live by agriculture and stock-breeding but unemployment is very high.
There are two basic religions, Orthodox Christianity and Muslim. We
preached the Gospel for the first time in 1994 and many people received
Jesus. We started gathering together in a rented club but later we were
forced leave because we were considered a cult. We had no choice but
gather in the open irrespective of the weather. We met in the rain and we
continually served the Lord. Many people, both Muslims and former Orthodox
repented of their sins. It was in 1997 that the Lord gave us a Prayer
House and now the church has 60 members and 70 supporters. We aim to
spread the good news so that everyone in Vetovo may hear about Jesus
Christ and expect at least 500 people may be added. We want to send
missionaries to neighboring villages to open new churches and to fix up
our building. We are open to everyone who wishes to write to us.
Pastor Plamen Spasov, Bulgaria.
Seminars planned for East Africa.
Since Unlimited Strategy Evangelism conducted its Antioch Commission

priority of USE. Current plans are for Nakuru and Bungoma,
Kenya. Countries within the East African Project are Kenya, Tanzania,
Uganda, Rwanda, and Malawi.

In the 1930's millions of Bibles were confiscated
. . .
Stalin sent multitudes of believers were sent
to the gulags (prison camps), where most died for being "enemies of
the state." In Stavropol, Russia, this order was carried out with a
vengeance. Recently, the CoMission ministry, which Campus Crusade for
Christ sponsored, sent a team to Stavropol. The city's history was not
known at that time. But when our team was having difficulties getting
Bibles shipped from Moscow, someone mentioned the existence of a warehouse
outside of town where these confiscated Bibles had been stored ever since
Stalin's day. After much prayer by the team, one member finally got up the
courage to go to the warehouse and ask the officials if the Bibles were
still there. Sure enough, they were. Then the CoMission asked if the
Bibles could be removed and distributed again to the people of Stavropol.
The answer was "yes"! The next day the CoMission team returned
with a truck and several Russian people to help load the Bibles. One
helper was a young man, who was a skeptical, hostile, and agnostic
collegian who had come only for the day's wages. As they were loading the
Bibles, one team member noticed that the young man had disappeared.
Eventually, they found him in a corner of the warehouse weeping. He had
slipped away hoping to quietly take a Bible. What he found shook him to
the core. The inside page of the Bible he picked up had the handwritten
signature of his own grandmother! It had been her Bible! Out of the many
thousands of Bibles still left in that warehouse, he stole the one
belonging to his grandmother-a woman persecuted for her faith all her
life. No wonder he was weeping-God had just dramatically revealed Himself
to this young man. His grandmother had no doubt prayed for him and for her
city. Her prayers had followed him, and now this young man's life has been
transformed by the very Bible that his grandmother found so dear.

Greetings from Bulgaria
I was born in June 1968, in Lom and now live in Rousse, Bulgaria. I
graduated in Chemistry. The greatest miracle in my life took place in 1991
when I received Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour. I graduated the Grace
Christian Seminary in Moscow in 1994 and was called by the Lord to set up
a church in Vetovo. I finished a correspondence Bible Course at Logos
Bible Academy in Bulgaria in 1995 and married Alexandrina in 1996.

New web site for seeking Muslims.
It explains Isa al Masih (Jesus Christ) and provides information and
stories about dreams and visions of Jesus happening today, general
information about Jesus and His message, the Holy Scriptures, the Way to
Paradise, evidence from biblical archaeology and creation science, and more. Volunteer
Christian translators and believers who can supply content for the
site, and email-based counsellors are needed.
Englishman meets missionary in the
I spent a pleasant but frustrating afternoon with an Englishman from
around Manchester. He is 70 and as agnostic a man as I’ve ever met.
Stanley is into the New Age thinking and follows some of the weirdness
that urges you to get in touch with your primary instincts as the “holy
spirit” in you… the only thing I said all day that seemed to penetrate
his darkness was that at 70 he had better be getting sure about whether to
follow man’s thinking or God’s revelation. Even that only caused a
moment’s hesitation. Short of God’s miracle, he seems hopelessly lost.
Richard Bartz, Cebu, Philippines.
The work with Pygmies continues despite
our very limited resources.
We want to open a small centre for primary care for the Pygmies once the
primary school is completed. We need volunteers to help in this field of
care by training others to become nurses etc. We also need help with
medications or a means to obtain medicines. Our wish is for God to help us
multiply centres of this kind all over the regions occupied by the Pygmy
people. There currently seems to be an increasing interest for prayer
within the Christian community here, but unity is not quite achieved yet.
Since March we have seen symbolic and prophetic acts for our nation.
Though the political situation is not quite stable yet, life seems to be
coming back little back little.

It is time to care for our neighbours from amongst every nation, tribe,

mission, in ways we "would not believe if it were told us"!

Missionary to children in prison.
I am a missionary to children who live with their imprisoned parents in
the Tijuana prison. These children have nothing, are abused in every way
possible and desperately need Christ. Most, if not all, of their parents
are drug addicts who use right in front of them. The Tijuana prison was
built for 2,000 inmates, but holds 8,000. There are 200 children there
because there is no foster care and they have nowhere else to go. If you
can, please help by sending Christian Spanish material, Bibles, books,
coloring books, lesson plan material, etc. for the children and their
parents as well.

Christians still attacked in Indonesia.
Christians in North Maluku, Indonesia continue to face attacks resulting in injury and near death. At 9 o'clock this
morning a vehicle containing ten Christians was heading to Ruku village
when they were attacked by a mob of 300 people with machete knives and
rocks. The driver, trying to shield himself, was struck several times.
Though wounded, he drove the vehicle away from the mob to Hospital in

Going to Vietnam next month.
Although us Americans are not exactly welcome there, the tourism thing
still keeps the doors open. A friend and I will go in for two weeks on a
“fact-finding” tour through the mountains of the north. Pray that we
will have freedom to observe and ask the right questions, and most
especially that we won’t jeopardize any of the Christians that are
already there. We need a lot of wisdom in this regard, as the areas we
hope to visit are all areas where the VN government is very sensitive to
outside influences. It would be awful to put someone or ourselves at risk
for the sake of a little information. We know the Lord will open doors, of
course. We just want the wisdom to know what to do and what not to do.
Anon for security reasons, well-known to us.
