For all of you who support us with your prayers and giving, Susan and I just wanted to give you an update on what has been happening since we began this ministry in October of 2018.
Because of your faithful support, we have been able to support 23 different Missionaries and Ministries to reach the lost. Here at home we support homeless shelters in Chicago, Gideon’s International and ministry on college campuses, state prisons, and the Navajo People in Arizona.
Maranatha is reaching the lost around the world, in the remote jungles of the Peruvian Amazon to reach the Urarina tribe and other unreached tribes there, and six kids clubs that reach over 500 children each week. You are reaching people in Uganda, and South Africa, and Zambia, where you’re supporting a missionary couple that has reached tens of thousands of African children for Christ. You’re supporting 250 children at a remote Christian village in Ethiopia. You’re supporting a missionary couple in Greece that work in the Syrian refugee camps, and a missionary to the youth of Austria. You’re in Israel, working with a Jewish Christian congregation that is reaching Jewish immigrants that come from the four corners of the globe. You’re in Guatemala, working in two locations, one at a remote mountain hospital that also ministers to the widows of that area, and you’re in Zacappa Guatemala, taking care of orphans and foster care children. You’re in Haiti, ministering to hundreds of children at two remote schools, where you provided a roof for the church there, and a solar power system, and a Special Education teacher. You’re in Nigeria, where you provided windows and doors at a Bible school.
You’re in India, where you are providing the monthly support for 350-400 Indian missionaries to reach the 2,000 Indian tribes that have never heard the name of JESUS.
You’re in Nepal at the “Angel’s Home”, where you are raising nine children (soon to be ten!), giving them a wonderful Christian home and education. You are also supporting the Pastor and his wife as they do outreaches and start churches in the remote villages all over Nepal and share the gospel in Buddhist schools to thousands of children. You’re in Cambodia, reaching hundreds of children between 4-14 years old every week with the gospel. You’re ministering to over 600 men each week at a Christian drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.
You’re supporting Dr. George and Mary Thomas of Reach Ministries, as they preach and teach in Africa, Asia, and around the world.
I long to see the scene in heaven when people from every tribe and tongue and nation approach YOU, and thank YOU for all YOU have done to reach them with the gospel.
Our prayer is that the Lord will continue to bless each and every one of you, as you pray for us, and support the work of Maranatha International Missions Ministry.
Please pray for our Board as we seek the Lord’s divine guidance as how to best use the resources the Lord has entrusted to us for His glory and honor.
Eternal blessings on all of you!
