Late November 2019 was a powerful time in Guatemala, reaching out to the hurting, but also those who reach the hurting. This short visit was about ministry to the leaders and team at Casa de Refugio in Chiquimulilla, Guatemala along with touching lives on the streets with these great people. Souls were saved, leaders were impacted, and callings were confirmed. ¡Dios es bueno!

Our time in Cambodia and V***nam in November was filled with meeting amazing people that are serving God in a part of the world that desperately needs the Gospel. It was a time of equipping in two nations that unfortunately have seen some of the worst of humanity. The V***nam war and the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia have left scars on this nation - but the power of the Gospel is making a difference.
In Cambodia, we taught in Phnom Penh to leaders from across the nation. They were equipped in the area of evangelism and put their training into practice right away as we heard reports of them reaching out in unprecedented ways right after we left.
In V***nam, we appreciate your prayers as we visited believers near Hanoi and Saigon. Pray for the church in these two nations - the challenges they face are real.

In September 2017, many local churches were impacted in the beautiful East African nation of Tanzania. Home to Mount Kiliminjaro (Africa's highest mountain), the Serengeti plains, and the historic island of Zanzibar, Tanzania has 45 million precious people who live in one of the world's poorest nations. Over a million children have been orphaned there because of AIDS. Good news is greatly needed in a land that has seen political corruption, drug abuse, immoral behaviour, witchcraft and a sense of helplessness. God calls us to bring the Gospel to 'the least of these.'
Lives were touched in the cities of Dar Es Salaam and Arusha, where we were able to minister to many influential business and political leaders, teaching them about evangelism and leadership. One of our crusade meetings was broadcast across the nation over the radio, and open doors of favour showed God's hand on this trip. Thank you for your prayers as we made some powerful divine connections for future ministry in this nation.
