16        Tuesday ~ Turkmenistan—Praise Report!

“Two families were very much touched by the Gospel through the ministry of one missionary family who met them by renting land from them for cultivation and sowing,” reports Churches of Turkmenistan. “This area was very far from water, and it was very difficult to water it. There was almost no water left to irrigate the particular field that the missionary family rented. For this reason, the field was empty and nothing grew there. The owners of the field heard the missionary couple praying together to God through Jesus Christ for water for their piece of land. ‘Water will come, even more than is needed,’ said the servants of God. And God showed a miracle! In fact, more than enough water began to flow through the canals. This affected them very much. With such interesting miracles, God strengthens the ministry of His children in the mission fields in order to plant new churches and expand the boundaries of God’s Kingdom in the land of Turkmenistan.”

“One woman at NB Village had encountered many difficult situations,” reports a missionary with China Mission. “All her pigs in the pen died. Her husband fell accidentally and injured himself. Her daughter had mental issues. Our ministry team visited them on a regular basis—encouraging and caring, and praying for them. God did wonderful work in this family and gradually softened their hearts. Her husband understood Mandarin Chinese. We explained the Gospel to him and told him that we were God’s children and were under His tender care. Satan dared not to touch us. He liked what we told him and welcomed us enthusiastically. One time we told him that those who believed needed to be baptized. He loved the idea of being baptized. We decided to baptize him outside. It was raining. We shared God’s words with him until the rain stopped. Finally, he was baptized. Even though it was cold outside and the water was cold, his heart was warm. Thank God for His grace. To God be the glory!”

According to eyewitnesses, the explosion was near him, the debris was large, and we were preparing for the worst. From the outside, the wound was extensive. The doctors were preparing for the operation, they did an ultrasound, and were shocked. There was no debris inside the abdominal cavity.
