I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 1 Timothy 1:12
It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. 1 Corinthians 3:7 NLT
Our ministry is a five step process
1 Pray; 2 Listen for the LORD’S leading; He 3 Leads;
we 4 Follow; 5 He Blesses.
That Blessing is seeing God fashioning the seeds we planted grow into lives changed for eternity. We enjoy reading reports where we followed God’s leading. Yes, He is Blessing. We reflect and share with you reports of our being planters and God is making the seeds grow.
Praise God that radio is taking the gospel to some of the neediest and most remote people in South Asia.
Response from a man, Pradeep in India. “I have been so sad since I lost my Job, as there is no income to take care of my family. On my mobile phone, I received the word of God from you through WhatsApp. I wasn’t going to play it, as I was so vexed and was murmuring against God.
My son took my phone to play games, and he unintentionally pressed the button in the notification center. It played your message, and that message was just for me. It said, ‘don’t give up. God is on your side.’ It was like an angel of the Lord coming home and speaking to me. I am now regularly listening to the word of God.”
We were honored to receive a visit from the Minister of Social Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, Mrs. Grace Batubara regarding the Submitting Ministry of Social Assistance in the form of Food Packages for the prevention of Covid-19. This event was attended by the wife of the governor of Bali, as well as the wife of the Mayor of Denpasar. During the visit, Mercy Indonesia was trusted to distribute 1,000 relief packages to people affected by the Pandemic. Some of these packages went to the Orphanage in Atambua where we placed a fresh water well.
Praying for the application process for a new Christian radio station in Nepal. This station will be focused on an unreached and marginalized people group in the country. Reports regarding the coronavirus indicate lockdown continues throughout the country.
"I wanted to say that you have great radio programs. I've been listening to you for two months. Surprisingly, your radio gives power. May the Lord protect you. I came to Christ in 2017. I am the only believer in my family. I have suffered a lot because of my faith in Christ. I was fired several times after co-workers learned that I’m a believer.
They even tried to kick me out when I was studying at the institute. It was painful. But the worst part was that we were caught by the national security service, while we were studying the Bible. The case did not come to court, but we were forced to pay a large fine, which I could not afford. They are still trying to persuade me to give up this belief. But I will not do this. I already enjoy suffering for Christ.”
Your gifts continue to make a difference as our partner ministries in Indonesia, Nepal, Liberia, Ghana and a restricted access country are actively watering and reaping souls with the saving Grace of our LORD Jesus Christ.
One way you can give is by making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) gift this year. When planning your IRA withdrawal strategy, you may want to consider making charitable donations through a QCD. See your financial advisor for information to enable you to make this tax advantaged gift.

1 Timothy 1:12 is a life verse that led to our creating Reaching People far from God
