By the time you read this, I will be in Ghana, West Africa. I will leave for Ghana on July 20th and from there I will be going to Zambia, Central Africa and will return on August 24th.
I will be traveling to Ghana with brother Yaw Boateng. Brother Boateng is from Ghana but now lives in South Carolina. He goes back to Ghana frequently to visit his family and work with the brethren in and around his hometown of Bomini. We will be going to Nkoranza in the Brong Ahafo region and working in the surrounding villages holding Gospel meetings and Bible studies.
I have been to Ghana many times now and it is good and profitable for the Lord. This will be my third time to Nkoranza and I am looking forward to seeing and working with the brethren once again. It is my privilege to work with such a fine and faithful brother like brother Boateng.
Then on August 03rd, brother Boateng will be going back to the States and I will travel on to Livingstone, Zambia. There I will join up with brothers Ronald Gilbert, Rusty Stark, and Earl Alverson. Together, we will be teaching at the Zambia School of Biblical Studies, holding three Gospel meetings, and teaching classes in the International College of the Bible.
Brethren, it is our plan to return to Zambia every year and work with the Zambia School of Biblical Studies, the Siamafumba School of Biblical Studies, and teach classes in the International College of the Bible. I would ask your prayers that this effort will continue to be a work that edifies the brethren, brings glory to God the Father, and souls to God the Son.
Many have asked what you can do to help. We truly appreciate that question and the attitude of wanting to help to spread the Gospel of Christ. First, pray for our efforts together for our Lord. Second, continue your faithful and generous support of our work. Third, tell others about this work and ask them to pray for us and to consider supporting us financially.
At this time, I am still in need of personal monthly support of about $2,000.00 per month. Thank you, very sincerely, to those who stayed with me in this new work.
This new work is comparatively small but has great potential. Our aim, as it has always been, is to reach as many with the Gospel as we possibly can. This means helping to train others to teach and preach the Gospel of Christ as well. This is the work of International Bible Teaching Ministries. To do this we need funds for Bibles for those who cannot afford them and good, sound, biblical books for the schools of preaching and the International College of the Bible. We also need funds for bicycles for the preachers and food and other supplies for the students while they attend school. In addition to these funds, there is also the cost of airfare, lodging, and food to go there and carry out this work. It is our intent to stay longer on each trip to help save money. As you can see, brethren, we need financial support. Again, please pray that we will receive the funds that we need for this good work.
I will be sending a full report of our efforts in these African nations upon my return. May our God bless you and grant you peace, happiness, and success in all of your Gospel endeavors according to His good will.
In Christ Who Saves,
