The wind (or the Spirit of God) blows where it wishes,

and you hear the sound of it, but you cannot tell
where it comes from or where it goes to.
John 3.8

The wind that brings new Schools of Mission
is still blowing . .

After Lahore last month and Quetta last week . . .
We 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.

Third gospel-medical mission to Burkina Faso
After 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.

Is there a church that can send me into mission?
I am a pastor and I would like to hear from a pastor and church that can help my wife and I to go and help others that are abroad.

Even to your old age and grey hairs . . .
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.
Isaiah 46:3-5

Our 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.

Are you working to take the gospel to the deaf?
Where are you in the world ?
Carolina Contreras

Before 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.
Anon, England

Follow 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.

Knocking 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.

Medical Mission to Honduras
I am a pastor and a doctor and some people from church came with me. Through the clinics and the evangelism we could see the glory of God time and time again. Our church does a medical mission to somewhere different every year where we get alongside the the needy and do all that we can for them. If you are interested in knowing more or coming with us, please write to me.

Listen, God! Please pay attention!
Can 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
Thank 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.

Can 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.
Malachi 3:3

This 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.
