Dear Friends, Supporters and Fellow Laborers,


Each month is a special reminder to us of the important part you share in our ministry to reach the unreached. God has and is using you to uplift us in prayer and support that enables us to walk through those open doors that He presents us and to be effective in the service to our King! God bless you! Rejoice with us in this past month’s updates and highlights!

  • Answer to prayers—The India visa has finally come back approved for the trip to India in November/December! Amen!

  • I appreciated the opportunity to preach at First Baptist Church of Milford, OH for Dr. Bill Duttry. We were humbled at the sight of the altars being filled at the invitation to personal revival.

  • Our annual meeting in Milford for First Bible International was encouraging and challenging as we face the coming year of projects needing to be finished and being trained and reaching into areas far more quickly with national pastors than we could ever do by just focusing in on American missionaries. We are thrilled as to what is being accomplished in ARMENIA and in INDIA. Recent projects: Amharic gospels of John, Thadou New Testaments, Farsi gospels of John, Armenia whole Bibles, Nepalese whole Bibles, Kannada India whole Bible, Maltese gospels of John and the Thadou whole Bible. It was a thrill to see Brother Jason Ottosen home from Papua New Guinea for a short furlough having planted their first church among the Kamako Tribe-a people group without a written language and without a Bible!

  • We praise the Lord for the opportunity to minister in Santa Maria, CA with the Cross Pointe Baptist Church where Pastor Jon Stone has planted a church. They run about 200 people and we had a great day of Missions Sunday preparing them for next spring as they begin faith promise missions giving. Many gave to the Kannada Bible project and they were excited about world evangelism.
