1  Friday ~ Nepal—Praise Report!

Gospel Outreach Centre reports: “58 saints were baptized by your Gospel partners in mid-April. One young man [Rumesh] shared his understanding of baptism: ‘Getting baptized does not take me to heaven, but it is an act of obedience to the command of Christ. It is an important ordinance handed down by our Lord Jesus which identifies us with Him in His death, burial and resurrection. I am not getting baptized because of pressures from my family, friends or my leaders, but because I desire to be faithful to His Word. Pray for me as I try to walk in obedience. Thank you.”

This is helpful when children are sick and need to be taken to hospital, and for missionaries to purchase necessary things for adults and children.


23  Saturday ~ Turkmenistan—Praise Report!

“Islam is gaining momentum around the world and our country is no exception,” reports Churches of Turkmenistan. “The influence of Islamic culture is trying in every possible way to block the work of the churches and the preaching of the Gospel. The persecution of believers is aimed at reducing the number of Christians among Turkmens. But all these measures also have the opposite effect. Turkmens are even more interested in Christ, and more people of Muslim culture are opening up to the Gospel, experiencing God’s love and His power. Fresh evidence is the conversion of one Turkmen woman who strictly prayed and came to believe in Christ through the preaching of the Gospel by the local house church. Her husband, having accepted Christ, received miraculous healing from an illness from which he had suffered throughout his conscious life.”
