A Time For Harvest

May God be gracious to us and bless us 
and make his face to shine upon us, 
that your way may be known on earth,
your saving power among all nations.
let all the peoples praise you!" Psalm 67:1-3  ESV

Although war is in front of our eyes, God's declaration is: 'Its not time for war but its time for HARVEST!'

Pat and I are receiving tremendous reports from our Partners in  Southeast Asia.  People are open to the Gospel. Rejoice as we share these praise reports with you.

From Cambodia our pastor reports, 'God is working amazingly!  God has healed many people and delivered many that were demon possessed.  Now the whole community is turning to Jesus.  Lots of people are waiting for me and my church planters to come back. We did baptism for 15 families and 10 more families want to get baptized. God is doing miracles and many are wanting to hear about Jesus. Praise God for your financial help.  The harvest is ready to reap.  Thank you everyone for their help and prayers.'

From Myanmar, after two months of silence, they report "We are safe at this time, even though there is fighting in the hills around us. We are planning to have a seminar to share the gospel to the youth during April. Please pray for their salvation."  (Read our previous report on Myanmary's military takeover)

From India, our Partners are continuing Gospel outreaches to villages and neighborhoods. Children receive help with school work and Bible teaching.  New outreach has begun in an area where the people are all unbelievers. An outdoor meeting was planned, but was strongly opposed by the BJP (the current radical Hindu ruling party) so they rented a hall to hold meetings. 

From Sri Lanka, government curfews, shortages of food, electricity and cooking oil (gas) affect life for everyone, especially the poor.   Our Partners recently held an eye clinic and are distributing food to many families.  Sharing the love of Jesus, as they encourage, pray, and bring hope.   

It's harvest time.  "So let's not get tired of doing what is good.  At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up. Galatians 6:9 NLT

People need hope.  People need Jesus.  Be encouraged.  Reach out and share Jesus love and hope with those in your circle of influence.   You are a blessing to us, and to many around the world.   

Blessings ~ Gary & Pat
