Spain is about to happen
|After many long months of waiting
Adriana is finally going on an exploratory trip to Valencia,
Spain this December until February 8th, 2005. She will
be available to any churches willing us to share our vision
for the Lord to open more doors to Latin American missionaries
to help in the re-evangelisation of Europe. We are interested
in the ethnic minorities in Spain and how missionaries
can financially support themselves through small businesses.
Jorge and Adriana Zahradnicek,
Love is . . . 1 Corinthians 13
|74-year-old Dr. Siegfried Buchholz,
previously General Director of BASF Austria and now a
management coach, translated the famous chapter about
love as follows: "If I could speak all of the world's
languages and were a perfect communicator, but were unable
to love people, I would simply be making noise, not reaching
anyone. If you love people, you have patience with them
and treat them fairly. You do not permanently point out
your own good points, or talk down to others. You speak
with people, not to them. If you love people, you can
understand their feelings. You do not always seek your
own good. You can control your ego, and do not take your
frustration out on others. If you love people, you do
not hold a grudge, or repeatedly point out their old mistakes.
You are not secretly happy when others fall, but rejoice
when they are successful. If you love people, you will
not give up. You trust them, believe in them, and give
them hope and encouragement."

José Paulo da Silva,
Is this the story behind 30,000
new believers a day?
|Many people around the globe
have heard that China is experiencing a huge revival,
some report 30,000 conversions every day. However, only
few understand that the seeds for this great revival were
laid by the blood of thousands of martyrs who paid a very
high price to live for the Gospel. During the Boxer Rebellion
over 30,000 Christians were killed. Could the 30,000 who
are now saved every day be God's reaction? (Asia Harvest)

Mercy Home for mentally sick people.
The inmates are taken from
streets and from hospitals and homes or they are found
wandering or chained or abandoned by their families. One
of our Bible school graduates had a vision from the Lord
to take care of this people and offered his land for
this ministry. He ,his wife and father as well as mother
take care of 14 mental patients in their home. Each one
is fed and given medical care. This is the third year of
operation. Through the love and care that is given to
the patients many have been healed and gone back to
normal life. We are not taking any grants from the
government as we want this to be a Christian home. We
also have a church attached to this home and 38 people
come to worship God with these people. We support this
home with food and medication. By giving a cow to them
they can get milk for the inmates and raise money for
the home. It helps the inmates to take care of the cow

First Malawi School Of Mission Graduates
|We sent out one of our missionaries
to Malawi and he is doing well with his ministry and the
of Mission there. This was the very first course we
ran in Malawi, and the number of future graduates will
be grow. In the past several years this 2 Timothy 2.2.
G12 style strategy of School of Mission has profoundly
influenced the communities, cities and nations of Africa.
In December were expecting 60 graduates in Nairobi
with more graduations in western Kenya.

Healing of a Hindu girl
|On our visit to Delhi with
Pastor Baburaj, in one of the several deprived areas,
there was a Hindu woman with her daughter, who was suffering
from pneumonia. We prayer for the girl and her mother,
with compassion and tenderness in our hearts. The woman
was desperately trying to find a solution as her daughter's
death was imminent, and as a last resort, she was attending
a Christian church. In India, many people have no access
to drinking water, that's why many children become ill
and die of viruses, mostly amongst the lower castes and
the poor. During all our time in India, the Holy Spirit
brought this girl back to our minds and led us to keep
praying for her and her mother. On our last day before
returning to Mexico, Pastor Baburaj witnessed: "The
girl you have prayed for has been healed by God! Now her
mother is inviting her Hindu neighbours so that they may
know the true God!"

14 new churches from Lima
|Since 1986, we have worked
through Schools of Missionary Training. Three years ago
we set up our own church planting programme. We have founded
14 churches in Peru and other nations. We are operating
with 3 missionary works in Pucallpa, in the Peruvian forest.
We have also sent a missionary to Germany and a physician
is soon to fly to India to set up a church. We need some
contacts to make arrangements for missionary cooperation.

Paulo Paulo, Steubenville,
We are here to pray for you . .
|And to do our best to answer any questions you have about
the Word of the Lord.
Pastor Frank Garcia, San
is like a balloon without air.
|The work of winning the lost
must include time spent in our prayer closet. "Well,
I gave up praying for my lost loved one's a long time
ago. They are hopeless." No, No, and again I say
No! If you want to see result in soul winningpray,
pray, pray! The battle for the lost is raged on our knees.
Prayer + the love of God + the Gospel = a soul won for
Christ. So why do we pray for the lost? It is to change
God's mind? No, He wants all men saved. The reason you
have to intercede is to put pressure on the demonic forces
that are trying to keep God's will from being accomplished.
These forces must be broken down through prayer so that
strongholds are destroyed and spiritual blinders are removed
from the spiritual eyes of the people. We have a part
to play in lifting that veil off of the unbelievers mind.
Until then, the unsaved won't see the Gospel, because
they can't see it. God will move through intercession,
your intercession, to reveal Himself. Through your persistent
prayers, He will bring them to the knowledge of their
need for Him. Then when they reach out to Him, spiritual
rebirth can take place. God can crack the toughest nut.
He did for you and me, didn't He? Through our prayers
for the lost, there is no one that He can't reach out
to, pull them up out of the pit they are in, brush them
off, heal their wounds, tell them how much He loves them
and bring them His free gift of salvation. Don't stop
