Missions Fund Report
He describes how people see them in the marketplace and airport who have already gotten tracts, and they come and ask for more. He wrote: “It has been such a blessing to have this effective tool to help in the ministry here in Samoa.” He is requesting more tracts.
Here is a report from a worker to China: “I have been receiving emails of persecution in China. One email told me that church leaders are being rounded up in vans and brought to black jails and tortured. Then they are injected with an unknown fluid and sent back to their families in a vegetative state. Another letter told me about a pastor and treasurer of the church being arrested and given three- and five-year prison sentences, respectively.”
While the gospel is still getting into China, it is becoming more difficult, and the flow is decreasing. We never know when an opportunity will be just temporary.
Many ministries have benefited, like Hospital Ministries of India. They go “from ward to ward in every hospital and meet patients and those with them and pray for them. Receptiveness to the gospel is better in such an environment.” Hundreds of thousands of tracts have flowed into hospitals through their work. Another is PBMI (People’s Baptist Ministry to India) who have established over 2700 churches with over 250,000 believers. The Chick tracts you provide are used in their summer outreach program. Instead of going home for the summer, their Bible school students hit the streets to put their training to good use. Just last summer, with 100,000 Chick tracts to work with, they baptized over 17,000 new believers and planted 75 new churches. The Indian outreaches have totaled 1.8 million Chick tracts, and growing. There is opportunity here.
This same missionary writes: “Maybe I am a spiritual manic/depressive. I don’t really know or care but I can truthfully say that the price we have paid to do this work has been high but nowhere near the price Christ paid for us. It has been worth it all and whatever may come I want to be right here, in the mud and the rain, with the bugs and the dirt just so I can tell at least one more person that Jesus loves them and died for them.”
The Chick Missions Fund has been able to pump over 1.7 million Chick tracts into the Philippines in just the last 2-1/2 years, and this effort is still going strong. This is a fantastic open door.
