and you hear the sound of it, but you cannot
where it comes from or where it goes to.
The wind that brings new Schools of Mission
is still blowing . .
After Lahore last month
and Quetta last week . . .
have been to Sultan Kay Mall to open School of Mission 3 and to Raiwind
to open School of Mission 4. The people received us warmly, pastors and
evangelists from different villages were also very happy because this
is first Bible School in the area. They said that this is the grace of
God and His favour for them.

drilling one deep fresh water well at Kossodo we are looking at new
projects to saves lives in the areas of deepest poverty. Combining free
medical care with gospel opens up a whole range of possibilities to
take the love of Jesus to the poor. Christian doctors in Europe have a
fantastic opportunity to show God's love to the poor of this world. And
not only that but as we follow Jesus we find that the opportunity
becomes a rare privilege. Contact me if you wish.

I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
friend and supporter Jean Amiral in France, 84, was recently admitted
for a second and more serious heart procedure after the failure of the
first treatment. At the very moment that he was being prepared for
surgery and as his failing heart was wired up to monitors, the Lord
moved and healed his heart in front of the surgeons.
Our senior honorary pastor, Eric Madisson, 84, has recently recovered
incredibly quickly from an operation to replace his knee, and another
to take away cataracts on both eyes.
Pilar's father, 87, was recently rushed to hospital with little hope of
survival but after prayer, he is now home again and recovering well.

you working to take the gospel to the deaf?
are you in the world ?
we became His we may have had no interest in Him . . .
However, once we come to Him, though, our
natural, religious, concept of wanting to do something for Him may kick
in but regarding such service He may say “I never knew
you.” Grafting may give us a way to fathom what He means that
“He did not come to be served.” For us to serve Him
may be like the grafted-in branch trying to push its poor life-sap into
the rich stem, thereby defeating the whole purpose. But He came to
serve us, supplying His richer, uplifting life-sap into us, so together
we have one life and one living, flowing from which we spontaneously
bear the fruit of His life.
Jesus in quietness, sweetness, kindness . .
And if necessary in silence as well, bless
those who make life difficult for you and forgive them for they know
not what they do or whom they serve when they discourage those who are
carrying the gospel to the lost, the last and the least.
at every door for Jesus
I have been in Borda da Mata with 30 people for
a week of knocking at every door. Many people shut the door in our face
but we were there and now they no excuse before the Lamb. In the prison
24 souls made decisions for Jesus. I prayed for a man who was about to
lose his leg to an infection. He felt something moving inside his bone
and then an evil spirit manifested and came out.

you make sense of my ramblings, my groans and cries? Lord, I need your
help. Every morning you'll hear me at it again. Every morning I lay out
the pieces of my life on your altar, and watch for fire to descend.
Psalm 5, 1-2 The Message version of the Bible
I have no words to thank you for your help
you for the new gift. We love you and pray for you. As soon as we
distribute the sewing machines and bicycles I will send their pictures
and report. All the Mercy Home directors have asked for one sewing
machine to repair the clothes of their kids. Is there a way for this?
We need at least 30 more machines, I ask because I am not ashamed to
ask for the poor and lost. I was busy with flood relief which gave a
lot of opening to share the gospel. The people said you are the only
one who cared for us so we would love to serve your God. I remember the
words of Jesus "the fields are white unto harvest." I don't understand
why people cannot see it.

Quebec be our gateway into North Africa?
We would like to teach literacy, translate the
Bible and plant churches. We need to learn good French and from there
learn the linguistics of African ethnic groups. French speaking Quebec
is calling for immigrants and I am wondering if there are Canadian that
can use us to work for them as part of our learning French?

The last word for today . .
He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.
verse puzzled some women and they wondered what this statement meant
about the character and nature of God. One of the women offered to find
out the process of refining silver so she found a silversmith and
watched him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for
her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver.
As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire
and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to
hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest
as to burn away all the impurities. The woman thought about God holding
us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that
says: "He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver." She asked the
silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the
fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered that
yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to
keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the
silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.
The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, "How
do you know when the silver is fully refined?" He smiled at her and
answered, "Oh, that's easy. When I see my image in it." If today you
are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has his eye on you
and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.
