Battle Cry
"Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?" Gal. 4:16

Missions Fund Report
Issue Date: May/June 2017

American Samoa
Missionary Terry Thrun received 20,000 tracts over a period of about a year. He described how he and the youth of his church passed out 600 tracts just before their youth rally. He wrote, “We had a lot of visitors come. Thirteen were saved.”

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.


China
Over the years, working through a quiet network of unknown laborers, we have been able to get over one million Chick tracts into the People’s Republic of China. Thanks to you, every time the workers asked for more tracts, we were able to quickly say, “Yes!” Opportunities for the gospel must be seized when they are available. We are so glad we were able to do that, because the door is closing.

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.


India
The Hindu government is doing its best to make things more difficult for missions, but there are still ways. India youth are like youth everywhere. They love Chick tracts! A Chick tract you provided was the trigger leading to the salvation of this young man.

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.


Philippines
We watch for other areas where God is giving us an opening. Right now, in the Philippines, the hunger is huge, and the church is as busy and motivated as any we have seen. In one area, a veteran missionary is conducting “Operation Jack” with 50,000 Chick tracts that you provided. I won’t give his name or area because persecution is building, and we don’t want to help the enemy make it any worse. But through it all, in just the first few weeks they saw “scores of souls saved, discipleship beginning and baptisms being scheduled. God is blessing the harvest but pushback is coming.” And they are just getting started.

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.
