The work of Still Waters Ministries has started, continued, and stopped.
Started: Several weeks ago, 15 to 20 abandoned kids from a very poor village were gathered together for several days of tutoring. Precious volunteers tutored the children in mathematics and English. The children were also given very healthy spiritual and physical meals to nurture and nourish them. Several children-only photos have been added to the Image Gallery section of our website.
Pray this good work will continue and many children are tutored, nurtured in the Lord, and nourished in their body.
Continued: Two other pastors and I traveled to the Middle East to teach the Inductive Bible Study Method to about 100 pastors and ministry leaders. Our brethren have requested that we return to give them follow-up training…but finances have prevented us from returning.
Therefore, the leadership of local churches in the Middle East are taking up themselves the delivery of the follow-up training. Praise the Lord! Pray for the safety of those gathering and for the Holy Spirit to move mightily in their midst to comfort, encourage, equip, and teach them.
Note: As I write this, Islamists throughout the Middle East are violently attacking US Embassies and Consulates under the pretense of outrage to a video produced in Southern California they consider an insult to Islam and Mohammed. Worse, this video could be used as a pretense to attack the Christians throughout the Middle East.
Stopped: Due to the lack of finances, the work on the wall in the land has stopped. Pray for God’s provision. What we need are merely table scraps of His table (Matt 15:21-28). A great and effective door has been opened to us, but there are many adversaries. Join the spiritual battle raging with every step and at every turn.
Without ceasing: Pray for the protection of and faithful witness of our beloved brethren in the Middle East during this momentous time in the history of this region. God is shaking the nations (Haggai 2:7) but the Lord is our Rock, our Salvation, and our Defense…we shall not be moved!
