Dear Faithful Friends and Ministry Partners,
There is a war going on between 2 kingdoms! The Kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world, that has Satan as its King. Satan and his forces are very powerful and well organized, but do not be deceived – God is in control and He has already overcome Satan and all his evil forces (Ezekiel 28:16-17). Jesus came to die on the cross to destroy the works of Satan. Jesus’ final words were “It is finished!” (John 19:30). The Victory is won!!
Satan and his forces, however, continue to deceive people as they wait their final judgment (Matt. 25:41).
Mary and I praise God that Jesus is now risen, and we serve the King who is victorious, and He is rescuing people from Satan’s bondage every day and giving them, “a new life of freedom in Christ.”
God is doing a mighty work, and Satan hates to see the Church of Christ equipping people to live in victory and sharing the good news of Jesus with family and friends! Thank you for your partnership with us in Dynamic Churches International through your prayers and finances!
Some International Reports:
In India: The Vise Chancellor of the large Christian University that we visited in India was in prison for 2 months on trumped-up charges. He finally went to trial and was released with no conviction against him! He and many others are constantly being persecuted there. Pray for India!
Ramananda serving in North India sent the following report on his team for 2018
Ramananda shares, “On April 4th, 2019, in KEIBI KUMODA village we had a salvation program, and there I met this old man (White shirt) sitting at the front. He is a very powerful and respected person in that village, and he is also a famous Meitei religious singer. His name is L. HERAMOTE MEITEI. He was waiting eagerly for my words, but not because he was interested in the gospel message, but rather waiting to find out anything Iwould say against his religion or faith. At first, he was indifferent to the gospel, but the Spirit of God really moved in his heart, and I was praying that God would touch this man and change his life for His glory. What a great and mighty God we serve! At the end I asked them to raise their hands if they had been touched by God and wanted to be forgiven of their sins. I really was surprised to see that this man was the first, raising both hands with tears in his eyes and he accepted Jesus as His personal Lord and Saviour.
After the program was over he came up to me and said ‘my son, I am a man with thick eyebrows who never listens to others but always compels others to listen to my words, and I am a man who hardly ever cries, but today as I have been listening to your message, something was happening in my heart, which I couldn’t really control, so I cried today. Please pray for me and my family’. I prayed with him and with many others who had accepted Christ. And now one of my DCI Trained evangelists is doing the follow up ministry in that village. Please praise God together with us and pray for us always. So that God will continue to use the trained men and women for His kingdom expansion in that village.”
Dr. Simeon Oyugi our Director for Africa:
Simeon reports that in Egypt he was video-taped teaching a series of 13 sessions as an overview (10 minutes of each of the 13 – 60 minute sessions). These where translated into Arabic and are being televised into North Africa and the Middle East. Pray that this opens doors to DCI in these countries.
In April Simeon worked with Clair Zoilkowski a Canadian who serves in Zambia. They shared the gospel with hundreds of people over the three-week period and many received Christ. They also trained several hundred Pastors in our Spontaneous Disciple Making Ministry in 5 different locations (including the Church Planters that lead the 70 churches that have been planted over the last several years). Wilson has been selected and is in training to be the local DCI Rep. in Zambia.
Hans and Elly’s Team in Malawi report on their recent trip to the villages:
“Sani is an area that is predominantly M-slim, but many people from that religion have come to know the Lord Jesus through Life Groups (LG). Interested people often meet with the LG Leaders in private to hear the gospel message; they receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and become born again.
In Linga we had 6 leaders attend our leadership follow-up meeting. One thing that blesses me at Linga is that the leaders are so humble and teachable. There were good questions and interaction. More M-slims are being converted in Linga. We heard good news about one of the kings (chiefs) in this area who was saved. He is being taught through the One-to-One Discipling by Pastor Daniel Banda, who is the coach at Linga.”
Please Pray for Mary and me!
I want to remind you that we are in a battle. Christians are being challenged more and more, but the real battle is going on in the spiritual realm. We have had a most interesting time the last several months. Finances have been very limited, and many projects had to be put on hold. It is as if we are being blocked at every turn. We have prayed much and tried to raise the needed funds but still nothing has changed.
We need your help!!
Please Pray: Pray that God will provide for the Urgent Needs for us and our DCI Team!
Donate: If you can give finances at this time, please do!
Thank you for your prayers and financial support! Through you God is expanding His Kingdom. Together with you, we are a team and we very much need each other to accomplish the great work God has given us to do!
