Titu needs to walk a long way to school each day. He was borrowing a bicycle, but now, through one of our donors, he has one of his own. It is a happy day and a need is met.
By Michael Cook
So what would it take to get you off the sidelines and into the game of world missions? Do you need a burning bush experience? The God who calls you will direct you each step of the way to your place of blessing with Him. This book describes one man's journey from a very good and productive Christian life into the ultimate place of God's blessing in his life. What would it take to move you out of that place of blessing? Life's struggles come at you very rapidly, often with multiple assaults at once. The author describes how both struggles in the ministry and struggles caring for late-in-life parents challenged him greatly. Despite the difficulties, God gave him the grace to endure and brought a fuller appreciation of how he had prepared the author for every circumstance he would face.

The children of our ministries in many parts of the world wish a Merry Christmas to Allow The Children and we want to pass it on to all of you, who are part of this ministry.
Our medical clinic project this year was for an earthquake affected area. Up into the mountains we went almost higher than the vehicle was able to go. We found people in need, not because of the earthquake alone but because their villages were far away from medical facilities. The country was also in the beginnings of a blockade preventing medical supplies from coming into ANY where in the country, so of course, the more remote areas were at even greater disadvantage.
Every member of the team served in a needed role-- just as the body of Christ should function. Some were preparing meals. Some were organizing and distributing the medicines. Some carried boxes, set up and organized for each day's clinic. Pastors from the area met with the people, prayed with them, and offered literature. The doctor was the reason the people came, but those who were willing heard the gospel.
We distributed Allow The Women kits and spent some time with each woman to show her how to use the supplies. What a blessing it was to give something so beautiful and so useful to women who had so little.
This important project is bringing training to men in four countries who are pastors, evangelists and cell group leaders-- who are already leading and teaching. They are able to multiply and teach others also.
Sep 2015 Pastor Rene Gonzalez and his wife, Irene taught pastors and wives in Nicaragua.
Oct 2015 Dr. Shean Phillips will be going to Haiti to conduct our very first pastor training for that country
Oct 2015 Matt St. Clair and Don Updike will be going to Burundi, Africa to train pastors.
Nov 2015 Jim Warner and Brian Hoffman will be going to Nepal to train pastors.
Allow The Women-- to attend school and to work their jobs, to go about their daily lives and to meet their responsibilities. Many girls in developing countries struggle with how to manage their menstruation. Disposable products are rarely available and financially unattainable. Girls might miss five days of school every month for lack of a solution for this problem. Women might lose income from their jobs. A recent problem is the earthquake in Nepal. Many families lost everything they had.
We are doing a project to make re-usable menstrual pads. We hope to provide them to earthquake affected women in Nepal and also a set for every teen girl in our sponsorship program in all of our countries.
The School for the Blind in Burundi, Africa has three buildings. The children constantly move among them. One is the dorm where they live. The dining room is in one and classrooms in the third.
The ground was rough and uneven. Muddy puddles formed both a safety hazard and a chance to spend the remainder of the day with wet feet. ( The blind cannot see the puddles.) There are other needs and projects waiting to be done, but it blesses me to see these permanent walk ways built. There are three of them-- to protect the way between each of the buildings.
Most of you who read our blog or receive our newsletter already sponsor one or more children. We appreciate you so much. We need more sponsors, especially for some children who have waited for a long time. We are hoping that some of our faithful sponsors might help us reach out to some areas outside our own circles to some relatives or neighbors who might be willing to do what you do. We can send you a photo of a child who needs a sponsor and a fill in card. Would you talk to someone you know who might be interested? If you can find one more sponsor, you multiply the help you are already giving.
There is no obligation and no need to explain if you do not find a sponsor. No need even to send anything back. You can keep the photo and use it to pray for the child. Contact us!
