Trip To America

Dear Family and Friends,

Trip to America!  What a blessing it is for us to be able to visit America again!  We have yet to meet our new beautiful Granddaughter Fallon (pictured below)!

We were invited to teach our language and culture courses at the new Harvest Mission’s Training School in Florida.  After praying, we felt led by the Lord to make this trip and teach at the school (Lorena and I teaching Harvest School classes in the tent.  We also enjoyed worship time at the beach - pictured below).

We will be in Southern California for ten days, March 12th – the 22nd.  If you live in the So. Cal. Area, Lisa and Skip Krantz will be hosting a get-together for us on March 16th in Laguna Niguel.  Contact them at for more information.  Hope to see as many of you as possible!

We are blessed to report that just in the last four weeks another 150 new listening groups started!  We call them “mini Bible schools”.  These “mini Bible schools” have a course that starts in Genesis and goes through Revelation.  There is also a course on “Marriage and Family” and the “Sermon on the Mount”.  All of these courses come preprogrammed on an audio MP3 type player that can be charged in the sun.  These pastors pictured above are receiving their new programmed Bible school.  After completing their training at our center, they and now ready to host their own listening groups.

Pictured above, a remote church gathers local leaders in the bush for training in our course, “Foundations of the Faith.”
Please pray for more resources – we especially need more workers to expand and multiply through these solar powered audio “Bible schools”!  Visiting, training, distributing, encouraging, and following up on these Centers is not easy in this vast country of dirt roads and bad or non-existent phone connections.  We are still amazingly blessed to have a reliable truck though!  It has faithfully taken Brian thousands of miles as he’s gone district to district conducting training and graduations.  Please pray for reinforcements.   There is so much potential here – everyone is so hungry for the Word of God!

Love to you all,
Brian, Lorena, Caleb, and Nathanael
