Missions Fund Report
China — The Chinese government is cracking down on believers. It is still possible to get tracts in, but only in strict secrecy. One 20,000-tract shipment was recently funneled into that pipeline. For obvious reasons, we cannot provide details.
One “back door” to China is Hong Kong. 90,000 tracts just arrived in Hong Kong for work among the tourists there. We have worked with these people before and many of the tracts end up in areas that are closed to Christian workers. It’s a great opportunity! Again, their names are withheld for their safety.
Columbia — Missionary Don Cross (BMFP) writes: “Yessiree, the tracts were and are a Blessing! July 20 is Independence Day in Colombia. We were able to plant 555 of these Chick Gospel tracts into receptive hands. Additionally on a day-to-day basis we hand distribute: neighborhoods, tiendas(stores), taxis, or just out on the street. One last thing, I enjoy cycling and do so 2-3x/wk. Wherever I stop for water, juice or bananas I converse in my broken Spanish with small groups and they readily receive these tracts!”
India — The 350,000 tracts printed for Missionary Kathy Smith and the Independent Church of India have all been completed. They are now in these workers’ hands. We look forward to hearing from them about what the Lord does with this seed.
In another part of India, 20,000 tracts went to Lordson Roch who wrote: “Thousands of gospel tracts distributed in less than 90 min at Goa Carnival festival.”
He and his team are real workers, committed to mass literature outreach to make a difference in their town. He told us, “We have been passing out 30,000 gospel tracts every three months!!! I can’t thank the Lord enough for providing the tracts through people like you all and others.”
Roch’s website tells us: “The church boldly proclaims the gospel in the street every Sunday after church, and on Tuesday we go out door-to-door preaching the gospel. Our church has flooded the land of Goa with gospel tracts and our goal and vision is to give the gospel to every individual in Goa and around India trusting the Lord to save many as He has saved us.”
Brian Pratt also received 50,000 tracts for use in another India location.
Liberia — Eric Barlea wrote: “The people were thrilled to receive the tracts. The first thing we did, we distributed among our members. Now we are reaching schools and communities with the tracts. People love reading them. This past Saturday we reached many young people, 50 of them confessing Jesus.”
Kenya — Joetta Smith writes: “So many have come for tracts I can hardly believe it! Can’t wait for the last shipment to arrive! Surely we are seeing the hand of God. The street evangelist came to see me today as he is preaching from Chick Tracts now and Pastor Sablon interpreted and we talked about three hours!”
Mexico — Mike Wallace writes: “There were many saved in Mexico City and part of the reason was the gospel presented so well in the Chick tracts.”
Special note: Fox news is reporting that several countries in Africa are suffering from severe drought. They reported that 11 million are facing food shortages and 1.6 million are on the edge of famine.
There are still hundreds of thousands of “traditional healers” in the countries and some are recommending child sacrifice to placate the gods who are supposedly holding back the rain. Gruesome corpses of children have been found missing teeth, facial features, and even genitals.
Authorities are trying to clamp down on the practice. One witchdoctor was given a life sentence for killing a 7-year-old girl by draining her blood and removing her genitals. He also cut the neck to spill the blood of her 10-year-old brother. Children who survive are often missing body parts.
Missionaries like Joetta Smith and Bill Eubanks have funneled hundreds of thousands of Chick tracts into the African continent, but there is still much more to be done. With your help, the Chick Missions Fund is trying to bring the healing Gospel to this land still dominated by the Enemy bent on killing as many as he can.
Many Christians want to provide Chick tracts to missionariesWe can help!
