Madness became a miracle
Our neighbour was very ill following a stroke and nothing more could be
done. It was very sad to see her unable to speak, see or eat. My husband
and I went to pray for her and returned home convinced that the Lord was
going to do something, which seemed to be madness. Three days later, to
the overwhelming surprise of everyone, Luisa sat up on her bed, began to
speak and asked for tea. All the glory is for Jesus.
Sandra Quintero, (one of our translators)

We export footballers and faith in Christ
Brazil used to be a mission area but now Brazilian missionaries and 80
denominations and churches have planted new churches in the USA, Canada,
Europe and Africa, and are evangelising intensively. They broadcast
Christian radio and television programmes via satellite or acquire
stations in other nations. One São Paulo church is already at work in
136 nations.

intends to take off them. Please, pray for them.

What is the state of the evangelicals?
According to ex-political minister Hans Apel, the State Church has no
future, except in the south because salaried employees who pay the for
the Church through an additional tax are leaving because they don't want
to pay thousands of Euros each year for the “nonsense” which many
Bishops produce. "I consider this way of financing the church a sin," he
said, calling on evangelicals to proclaim their faith. Jesus wants this
nation back and for that to happen, Christians need to be courageous in
approaching others. "We cannot expect the State Church to
re-Christianise Germany." Apel left the church five years ago to protest
against the blessing of homosexual partnerships.

Last 10 years lost in murder attack
All that me and my wife have got in the past 10 years as refugees in
Ghana has been lost when whoever burned our house down tried to have us
killed for no reason that we are aware of. The teachers salaries for the
school where I am the Vice Principal also got burned. Now we are
starting from zero again needing housing, clothes and food. We are very
thankful to all the people who are praying on our behalf to the Lord for
help and recovery. We do appreciate all that you have done thus far and
thank God for those who are helping us materially in getting us some of
those things that we lost in the fire. May the Lord bless you dearly.
Anthony and Mrs Macedo Barlee, Refugee Camp.

A harvest from your seeds
We recently finished a 10 day Bible training program for 42 of our young
pastors, 7 of whom were filled with Holy Spirit for the first time. I
cannot forget that this pattern was introduced by you and it is so
effective. Pastors and leaders are raised through this training program
and some have started new churches. This was our 10th program in 9
years. Besides seeing miracles of healing and deliverance all of our
financial needs were met. I remember the conversation we had on a train
crossing India regarding starting a Bible School. That enlightened me
and a vision was born.
Pastor JJ, Central India

§ JJ, That train trip was a Divine appointment for us both, it is great
to see what the Lord is doing in Harvest Mission. It is a privilege to
know you and the family.

Wealth isn't everything
Eighty people commit suicide daily, including children. Japan is a
wealthy country, technologically advanced, but behind this is loneliness
and depression. This is a country in great need of God. Please pray for
people to come and support the work in this country.

Desert begins to blossom . . .
We give thanks from the bottom of our hearts for God's grace in
Mauritania in spite of our heavy burden of sin. God’s work is developing
here as He reveals new strongholds and new mission fields ready for
harvest. He shows me where I need to go next. We have just started to
plant new churches in the south among the Maures, Poulars and Sonikes
peoples and God worked miracles. People came to know Jesus as their
Saviour and we now want to start a Bible School in this area. The
Poulars are mainly illiterate but learn by listening to audio tapes.

We are glad to have been able to provide a fast tape copier for this
brave African man working in one of the world's most closed nations as
far as the gospel in concerned.

Myanmar (Burma)
Join Thailand to help Myanmar
Myanmar has a long history of torture and persecution of the Chin people
and others who have turned to Christ in huge numbers. More than a
million ethnic minorities are hiding in the jungles, refugees are over
the borders and 1,300 political prisoners are behind bars. Pastor
Philip, 26, is trying to disciple primarily Animist people in Myanmar.
His existing church for 30 people is rotten and falling down so we are
going to help him build a new one of wood and brick for 100 people. We
have $350 so far and need $4,500. Will you join us to help the Myanmar
believers through this good young pastor.
Gareth Lavell, Chaing Mai, Thailand

§ We know Gareth well and trust his judgment, and he has checked out the
situation with Philip. Gareth, you can count us in.

300,000 Christians in Islamabad.
I have preached in many Churches and in open areas and in cell Churches
in my 4 week visit. God has done many miraculous works there. Many souls
accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Sick people were healed with the
grace of our God in the name of Jesus Christ. I am once again thankful
for your prayers.
Pastor Rauf Swan,Voice of God Ministries, Pakistan

Ex-terrorist now leads worship
Three years ago, the women from our ministry visited the high security
prison for women jailed for terrorism. It is marvellous to see God's
power transforming lives. For example, Lily became a new person and
changed. She was pardoned and since leaving prison has been helping with
worship and she works for a Christian firm. Lily plays the zampoña and
the pan pipes well and wishes to play the flute or the saxophone so if
anyone has one not being used we would be very glad to have it.
Franklin Escalante Fuentes, Lima

Taking hope to the hopeless
On December 12-19 Hope Family Church and other churches have their
annual outreach to to the families in this troubled region. The theme is
the heart of Jesus for the hearts of the hopeless. We will have
workshops and then go to hopeless people in hospitals, orphanages,
prisons and bus parks. Last year a number of street boys received Jesus
and moved over Kigali's streets preaching to others. Any evangelist from
around the world who would like to come and preach, the door is open
until November 12, before we make the posters.

Do you believe that the harvest is plentiful?
Do you believe that there are a lot of people just waiting for someone
to present the Gospel to them? Do you have a fear that people won't want
to receive Jesus if you step out to witness to them? We will only do
what we believe. If we think that people won't want to become
born-again, then we won't witness much, and even when we do it will be
in fear and not in faith. Remember, that the devil is a liar. So, if
Satan is telling you that no one will want to get saved, that means
there are a lot of people who will receive salvation. If the devil tells
you that it is difficult to witness, that means it must be easy. If he
tells you that you can't, that must mean that you can. Jesus said, "Open
your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for the harvest."
