whatever we have in the way of paper assets will be gone. Even the gold and
silver will probably be declared illegal and confiscated by the Luciferian New
World Order. That is OK, because the L-rd G-d Almighty is our Source. He is El
Shaddi, the All Sufficient One. NOW is the time to lay up treasures in heaven.
I would advise divesting material wealth, and storing it up as treasure in
I want to
get very specific. If you use your material wealth to support the preaching of
the gospel, then you have it stored up in heaven. Also, you will be much better
prepared to face what is ahead in the great tribulation, before you get to
heaven. When the banks and stock markets crash it won't bother you. Also I know
that some of you would like to hear from Betty. We need your help. I can not
deny that. I am also going to encourage you to support Brother Ebenezer. I know
that will mean treasure in heaven. If you send faithful ministers of the gospel
any of your treasure you will find it safely stored in heaven. Yes, there are
people who do lay their life on the line now to bring souls into the kingdom.
CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH! Alleluia Yeshua, Jesus!
is Sister Betty. I would like to share with you highlights of another day with
The Lord Jesus Christ that Jim and I had this week on a bible run.
times I could write about glorious things Jesus does when we go witnessing with
Him. But, sometimes our bible runs to Nicosia
are just awesome and must be shared. All Glory to God!
we left our flat, a short way down the road we came across an elderly man we
had not seen in several months. He lives on a poor mini plantation. He lives in
an old, old rock house, one story, no big white columns. I say plantation,
because he has many orange trees, olive trees, a vegetable garden and I really
don't know what all is grown on his property.
met this old Cypriot gentleman (who loves Jesus) one day when we cut across the
road leading to his house. He had an old, ragged, but clean, robe on and was
clean shaven. A Sri Lanka
girl (who also loves Jesus) takes care of him and was walking with him. He was
not well, but every day would walk with his cane and the Sri Lanka girl,
along with a big golden retriever dog, around the long driveway that circled
the orange trees up to the front of his house. They were so blessed, as we
were, as we talked about the Lord Jesus Christ. He had the girl to give us
artichokes out of his garden and we were on our way. We were so excited to meet
a new Cypriot friend that spoke good English, as the Sri Lanka girl did also, and they
both love the Lord Jesus. Alleluia!
saw the Sri Lanka
girl at the Boot sale (flea market), one Sabbath and she said the gentleman was
doing very good. But she was both sad and happy. She was going back to Sri Lanka in a
couple of weeks. Her Visa would expire then. She said she loved working for the
gentleman, he treated her like she was his daughter. Alleluia Yeshua, Jesus.
next Sabbath, when we went to the Boot sale to give out tracks, we took a Sri
Lanka Bible and a picture I had taken of her on her knees hugging the golden
retriever, just in case we saw her. She couldn't take the big dog to Sri Lanka but
she could have a picture. We saw her and gave her the Sri Lanka Bible and the
picture. She was so happy to get them. Thank you Jesus!
to God, we rejoiced with the old gentleman when we saw each other yesterday
morning. It was wonderful to see how well he looked and how well he was getting
around on his own. We told him we had to go, we were on our way to Nicosia to the Bible Book
Store. He was very discouraged and said there seemed to be so little purpose
left in life for him. Jim told him that one of the greatest purposes in life is
to talk to God and ask for Him to be glorified to heal people as He was
glorified to heal him. To ask that people would have ears to hear the Gospel
and hunger to read and KNOW the Word of God. He was very much encouraged. Thank
you Jesus for letting us see him again. Lord willing we will go visit him
had to go to the bank to get money to get the bibles. As I was putting the
money in my purse I told the lady teller that we were using the money to go to Nicosia and buy bibles. I
told her we give the bibles out in the streets, parks, etc. to all the many
nationalities that are here in Cyprus,
in their language. We give them out free because everything from God, (as I was
pointing up), is freely given so we give them free. I could not believe she did
not know what I was talking about. She did not know what a Bible was, and I
said THE WORD OF GOD in a book. (Very seldom I am out in public without my
bible in my hand, and this was one of those times, sad, sad, PLEASE FORGIVE ME
LORD JESUS). She didn't know who I meant when I said GOD. I told her I would bring
her a BIBLE. She was happy and said ok. Other people in the bank heard
what I was saying and understood. Glory to God!
the bus stop a man came up to us and was so friendly, asking where we were
from. We told him Texas, in America. Jim
gave him papers about Jesus,
Prince Charles. He was from Ireland.
He was so interested in talking about Jesus with us. His city bus came before
our bus came. He looked back at us when he stepped on the bus as to say, I
don't want to leave yet I'm not through talking with you. Well, at least he has
the papers Jim gave him about Jesus, etc. to study on. Alleluia! Cyprus bus
service is not that good, you better get on your bus when it comes. It might be
a while before another one arrives.
our Nicosia bus
came. Soon as Jim was seated he was giving out papers to the Bangladesh and
Persian young men. A Greek man turned around in his seat and he wanted
something to read in Greek. Glory to God! Then, for everybody's enjoyment Jim
played "Little Boy From the Carpenter's Shop" by way of the computer.
Thank you Jesus for batteries for computers. If you have heard it you know it
is one of those songs you can't play softly. It is shouting music. Alleluia
usually take the 10:00 bus to Nicosia.
The driver is a Christian. This 10:00 bus does the mail run. We go by the mail
sorting plant for Cyprus.
The driver gets out at the plant, opens the window at the seat behind his
drivers seat where the mail is. Jim hands me the computer, gets up and goes to
the front and hands the mail thru the open window to the driver. FINISHED, the
mail has been delivered to be sorted. In nothing flat were on our way. (The
Greeks like the word FINISHED. That's when they slap their hands together and
say FINISHED) One word the Greeks say that we understand.
people on the bus are shocked with this procedure. They see quite a witness of
a Brother in Jesus helping another Brother in Jesus. Not being passive like
everybody usually is on the bus. Alleluia Yeshua! Jim started doing this and
who knows, the driver may have helpers on the days Jim isn't along, from the
example he sets.
usually ride all the way to the Bus Station but this time Jim said, "let's
get off at the next stop". We walked between two rows of buildings and
came to a very large building. It was the Americano College.
There were 5 or 6 young men standing out beside the building. Jim asked them
where they were from and they said India. Jim had tracks in their
language, Hindi, and gave them all one.
were shocked Jim had something in their language. They asked if we had been to
their country in order to have these tracks in their language? We have been
asked several times that same question from people from other nations. Anyway,
they understand English and received cheerfully the words Jim spoke to them
about Jesus and getting to know the true Jesus. They were reading their tracks
when we left. Alleluia Yeshua, Jesus.
walked on to the Bible Book Store. Last week the lady that runs the bookstore
was sick and asked Jim for prayer. She has seen the manifest power of God heal
her before. In the last two years her faith has grown from little faith to big
FAITH. Praise the Lord Jesus! She was happy to see us.
picked out the Bangladesh, Sri Lanka,
Hindi and Armenian bibles we wanted to get. I remembered the lady at the bank
and said we need some Greek bibles, one for the Lady teller at the bank.
Jim was getting 5 Greek bibles off the shelf when the lady said, "Wait, I
have some complete Greek bibles upstairs that I can sell to you for 3 Cypriot
pounds instead of 6 pounds”. Just 1 page is folded into the seam of the bible
and we just very carefully snip it and unfold that page. Glory to God! We
bought 10 of them. She is going to save the rest of them for us. We will
get more next time we go on a bible run. Alleluia Yeshua! He gives his people
called Pastor Banjo from the book store. Pastor Banjo had a young Pilipino man
with him. Alvin is helping Pastor Banjo a great
deal with the Pilipino
Church. Pastor Banjo
wanted Alvin to
meet Jim. We walked with them over near where the Church is. They saw a friend
that runs a Western Union - Telephone service
on the corner across from the Church and the fellow invited us to come
in. The man that owns the Western Union
service is a Catholic and a friend of his had been trying to convert him to be
a Mormon. Jim said, "I have exactly what you need to see on this
computer". Jim showed him the God Makers movie and also the DNA movie
about what the Mormon cult ACTUALLY believes. The TRUTH about Mormon beliefs is
embarrassing to Mormons.
Mormon would not acknowledge the truth of his Mormon church. He was caught in
some very obvious lies as he said that it was not true what the factual movies
Jim showed him, on the computer, did clearly show and prove. Jim bound the
demons in him. He settled right down. Jim told him he would burn in hell with
the 2 false prophets Mohammed and Joseph Smith. He wanted no part of a KJV Holy
Bible to read. He said he had the book of Mormon.
Catholic man gladly received a Holy Bible in Greek. Both the Catholic and the
Mormon watched the movies and the Catholic got delivered of the Mormon demons
he had received. He wanted no part of the Mormon church. All we can do is Pray,
and Pray some more that the Mormon will check the things out he saw on those
two movies. He sure was told the TRUTH with NO uncertainty. We can still pray
that he could accept the truth Jim told him about the Lord Jesus Christ and
will come to know the Creator and Redeemer of this world. It was truly a God
setup. The Catholic was in trouble and he was delivered. Glory to God!!
Banjo wanted us to go over to his house with him and Alvin. Jim said to stop by
some pizza place and he would get a large pizza for us to eat. Alvin went in with Jim to
order. Soon Alvin
came out to the car to get 2 of the Greek bibles for the pizza workers.
Pastor Banjo's house Jim was talking to Alvin
about if he had read the Bible through line upon line and precept upon precept?
You could tell he has a great hunger for the Word of God. His answer was no, he
had not. Jim just happened to have a KJV Holy Bible he had bought for himself
but had not marked it up yet so he gave it to Alvin so he could start reading the Word of
God the way he should. Before we left Pastor Banjo's house Jim led us in a
bible study of Titus. Alleluia Yeshua!
Alvin took us to the bus and
showed us where he and his wife lives. He lives right across the street from
the bus station. His wife works for the Ambassador of Israel in Cyprus, a
Jewish man. Isn't that interesting?
and I sat right behind the bus driver on the way back to Limassol. As people
were getting on the bus, Jim was handing out Bangladesh tracks to the guys
getting on the bus. This was the 4:30 bus we were catching and most of the
people getting on are Bangladesh.
One of the ones he handed a track to, stopped and gasped and said, "this
is my language, how did you know"? Jim pointing up said "He
knows". Alleluia Yeshua, Jesus!
bus driver had his daughter with him, looked to be about 11 years old. He was
letting her give out the tickets and collect the money. He was standing by in
case she needed him. Then she was helping him make a report. She was setting in
the seat right inside the door and every chance she got she would look up at
us, for we are peculiar looking people that don't fit into this world.
Alleluia Yeshua! The driver even gave us favor and let us out of the bus about
a block closer to our flat than the normal bus stop. Before we got off the bus,
Jim asked the driver if he minded if we gave his daughter an Orthodox Holy
Bible and he said we could. She looked really excited about it. Bless the Lord!
got home about 6:15. I called our dear Sister in Christ, Maria Fullah, a Greek
Cypriot widow with a hotline to heaven. She is 75 yrs. young and she loves the
Lord Jesus so much. ( the Greeks say "too much" for "so
much".) Weird, you can't love Jesus "too much". Maria just
returned from a month in Greece
with her granddaughter that is in college. Maria said she met a lady while
visiting that she became close friends with, and witnessed to her about Jesus.
The friend got saved and was full of joy but had no bible. Maria gave her the
special bible we had given her, Alleluia Yeshua! That is how Sister Maria is,
she will give you the shirt off her back. Today I took Maria 2 Bibles and she
already had one promised to a lady up in a village. I told her I will
bring her more after we make the next bible run.
I will take a bible to the lady teller at the bank. Today, I had the bible in
my hand and my destination was the bank, to give the bible to her. Jim and I
were at a bus stop and Jim was going to ride down town to get a computer
problem fixed. I was just sitting with Jim until his bus came and then I would
walk on down to the bank and give her the bible. But, God had another plan.
This Greek woman and her son and daughter stopped. The lady said, “would you
pray, my son wants you to pray for him.” Jim prayed for young Jon. Jim asked if
he loved O Iseous Christos, and he said yes. Do you have a bible? No. Would you
read the bible if you had one? Yes. So you see why I will take the bible to the
lady at the bank tomorrow. Yes, young Jon is NOW reading the one I thought she
would have. Glory to God. Alleluia Yeshua.
Oh what a beautiful
day the Lord made for us here in Cyprus. We could not let this sun
shiny day go by without getting out and telling people about our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ.
finished up with PalTalk and finished getting a message out to the prayer warriors
Sunday afternoon, we decided to go to the Municipal Park.
Lots of families go to this park on a beautiful day like this so the children
can play on the swings and things, and they also have a small zoo. It is just a
lovely, peaceful, setting with beautiful flowers and trees.
When we were
about a block away from the park we met two young men that spoke to us and
stopped to talk. They were both from Bangladesh and spoke pretty good
English. Jim showed them the Bangladesh
teaching Bible. You should have seen their faces, it was really comical, I wish
I had my camera to catch their expressions. Their eyes got big and their
eyebrows SHOT UP, they were so surprised. Jim showed them the Bible was
highlighted and marked for him to teach from. So, Jim got their phone number
and he will get Bibles to them.
When we got to
the park, after quite a walk, we decided to sit on a bench right inside the
gate so everybody coming in or going out could read, "Jesus Christ Coming
Soon. Alleluia" when he opened up his briefcase. He was reading the Bible
to me, as people were walking by reading his case. You can just see people
THINKING about what they just read. You can tell alot by their expression
whether they receive it or not. I didn't see any eyebrows shoot up though. LOL
We decided to
walk around a little bit and give out some of the Booklets. Jim has been able
to make 18 page Booklets off the computer in Russian and in Greek. They are
really neat, he put a sketching of Jesus walking on water with a ship in the
distance on the cover. Many people were eager to take the Booklet. Alleluia!
We came across
a fellow we see all over town, who is always so happy to see us. Last time we
saw him, before today, was last week. He was sitting on a little stool on the
sidewalk of a very busy street with a radio playing in his lap and he had a tin
can wrapped in holiday paper, holding it. He is so precious. Oh Lord just bless
him. We are SO blessed when we see him. He is a child of God. I bet Jesus loves
him very much. Anyway, he has always wanted an English Bible and we had one for
him today. Alleluia!
We also saw two
girls sitting over in an arbor. When we started over to where they were the
younger one got up and went down a sidewalk out the other side of the arbor.
They didn't see us coming or I don't think she would have left. You know, the
Lord may have had her to leave because it would have been hard for us to give
to one and not the other. We had talked with these two girls before. But, this
time we had a Bible with us in their language so we gave it to the girl that
was there. After we visited a little bit, as we were leaving, the younger girl
came back and saw the Bible and she ran after us asking if she could have one.
We will take her one next Sunday, if the Lord Wills. Sundays you will find them
in the park. They always have this same man with them, we think one of them may
be a nurse to him. He is Greek and always wants a paper from Jim. The Sri Lanka
people are such sweet people, they may be just friends with this man who looks
forward to spending Sundays in the park with them. Alleluia Jesus!
On the way out
of the park a lady was sitting on a bench looking very lonely and sad. We went
over to give her a Greek Booklet to read and she said she was Arabic. Jim had a
Gospel tract in Arabic in his case for her. She was so pleased when she saw it
was in her own language.
We stopped in a
restaurant about half way between the park and our flat. We decided to go in
and have a salad, our first raw vegetables since the Lord released us from the
fast He had us on. We don't eat there often, but they have always welcomed us
with open arms and most of the waiters, bus boys, managers and customers want
the papers and booklets Jim has to give out. They don't treat us like we have leprosy!!
Alleluia Jesus! Jim asked one of the waitresses, that came by our table to
visit, what country she was from. She was a fair skinned, blue eyed blond, you
could tell she wasn't Greek. She said Serbian. Today was the first time in
months we had carried a Serbian Bible. She was so blessed to receive it. She
went to the kitchen and showed it to George who is Serbian and smiling she said
"he wanted to take it away from me" so Jim will take him our last one
tomorrow. Jim really heard from the Lord to take that Serbian Bible, and the
other Bibles we gave out.
waitress came by to visit and she was Russian. We gave her a Russian Booklet.
She seemed pleased to get it but wasn't too sure if she wanted a whole Bible.
She appeared to be younger than most of them, she probably wants more fun time,
than reading the Holy Bible time. She said, she would think about it. Jim will
have one handy when he takes the Serbian one. After reading the Russian Booklet
she may hear the Lord speaking to her heart and she just might want the Bible.
We will pray that happens.
there were so open and kind to us. Even gave us coffee "on the
house". Which is rare. Children were waving at us, especially Jim. They
really love Jim, he blows them kisses. Would you believe, Jim really is a sweet
child of God. His beard fascinates them also, it isn't white enough for them to
think he is Santa. Thanks be to God, we do not need any Santa look-alikes
around here! Even the parents were smiling at us in a kind way, and not scoffing.
The Lord really went before us and prepared hearts. Alleluia Yeshua!
came and visited with us quite a while. She wanted to know all about us where
we came from, how long we had been here, how long we plan on staying, etc. Jim
answered all her questions and told her about why Jesus Christ had sent us
here, about the people of Cyprus
helping the Jews, and Bible prophecy. She said she was going to start reading
her Bible. She was a young Greek girl and she could speak English like nobody
we have come across. She asked if the Greek booklet that Jim gave her was
available in English. She says she prefers to read English. Jim asked her if
she had a computer. She said yes, so Jim gave her one of the GJiGT cd's. Jim
explained the promise of James 1:5 and a little bit about what is coming and
that if she would receive by FAITH the promise of James 1:5 she would hear the
Lord talking to her and explaining the scriptures by His Holy Spirit. He told
her that we must know Jesus voice, and Jesus wants her to really KNOW him and
not just know about him and be involved in religion.
When we left
there, the beautiful day had turned into real dark, rain looking clouds. I said
to Jim, maybe we better walk on the main street where we can grab a taxi if it
starts to pour. Jim said oh we will make it home before it rains, I just know
God will hold it back for us (this has happened many times). When we were about
3 blocks from our flat, we saw two guys walking toward us and one started
hollering "my friend" "my friend" and ran over and hugged
Jim. It was the Farsi guy we had met at the bus stop in the last report. We had
already given his Bible to him some time ago. He said he was reading it and
really learning. The friend that was with him wants one in Farsi. By the way,
we would have missed the Farsi guy and his friend if we had taken a taxi. Thank
We are so
thankful to the Lord that He speaks to the brethren that we can have substance
to get the bibles we need. The field is so white for harvest here. So many
different nations pass through Cyprus
on their way to somewhere. They are mostly poor people who take ships and not
planes. God loves them and has prepared their hearts. What a privilege to bring
the gospel to the POOR. We do thank the Lord Jesus Christ every day, for every
individual, whom He has moved to partake of this grace. We will be off to the
Bible Book Store again tomorrow. Alleluia Yeshua, for a glorious afternoon with
you!! By the way, it did not rain until we were in our flat. Thank you Jesus
for holding back the waters again!!!!! We do thank Him for sending the blessed
rains on this nation and on Israel.
Most of the time when we get rain here in Cyprus
it goes right on over to Israel
and blesses them. Alleluia Yeshua!

Dear Friends -
Jim asked me to
write this to tell you about this day with Jesus that we had making a bible run
to Nicosia. So
you know, this is Betty writing.
Jim and I left
the flat to walk to the bus stop to catch the early bus to Nicosia. When we got to the bus stop, there
were two young men waiting on the bus. One scooted down to the end of the bench
as far as he could the other stood up and invited both Jim and I to sit. Which
is unusually courteous in this part of the world. Then, we saw there was room
for all four of us to sit and wait on the bus. But, the Lord Jesus Christ had
Jim asked them
what language they spoke and read. They both spoke a little English. One was
and could read the English papers Jim gave him, and we also gave him an English
New Testament. The other one only reads Farsi, and he was from Iran. So Jim
got their names and phone numbers and told them we were going to the bible book
store in Nicosia
and we would buy them both bibles in their own language. Jim witnessed to them
and then got his Bible out of his JESUS CHRIST COMING SOON ALLELUIA - portable
billboard briefcase, and the gospel shop was set up for morning traffic, on one
of the busiest streets in Limassol. People passing by can see it very good. It
is printed in big lime green letters on the cases black background. Jim started
reading the bible to all of us. The Iranian was understanding and looking at
the words being read and expounded. It was so obvious the Lord had gotten the
Iranian's heart. He was receiving the Good News, and the Holy Ghost was making
the words of First John come alive in him. It was awesome how God touched him
by the Holy Ghost. He confessed he was a sinner in need of the mercy of God,
and wanted to know God, and read God's book. Alleluia.
The bus came
and was almost full. The Pakistani and Iranian both stepped back so we could
get on the bus first and have a chance to sit together. Sure enough, that was
the last 2 seats together without sitting on the seat over the tire well, which
makes for a most uncomfortable trip. It is a one and a half hour trip on this
particular bus, it takes longer but it is cheaper, so therefore better for us.
We got a back row seat next to an elderly couple from England. Jim
and the man set in the 2 middle seats and me and his wife had windows on
opposite sides of the bus. She was giving her husband the cold shoulder, so he
was glad to talk with Jim. He wanted all of Jim's papers. He was amazed, and we
were amazed too, at how he was receiving with understanding the information
about these last days and the information in the bible related to Prince
Charles. Everybody was wanting to listen in if they knew any English at all. He
probably got more gospel on that bus ride to Nicosia than in the last year in the Anglican
church. He quickly understood how Subtle and GREAT is the difference in the
title "Defender of Faith" and "Defender of THE Faith." One
defends THE Faith and the other defends all other Faiths From THE Faith. He was
receiving and he really was enjoying the trip.
The young man
sat in front of us. Later a Kurd got on and set by the Iranian. They could talk
with each other because Farsi and Kurdish language is similar. Then a Bangladesh got
on and sat in the isle pull-down seat right in front of us. I had a Bangladesh
bible with me. I tapped him on the shoulder, and told him, I believe that Jesus
Christ wants you to have this bible. He was so happy when he saw the writing on
the cover and opened it up and started reading IMMEDIATELY. I told him to be
sure to read from the very first page to the very last page. Jim let him see
some pictures of the Bangladeshi brethren that did read from the front page to
the very last page, and that how when they had read every page in order that
Jim will baptize them. Then a friend of the Bangladesh in front of us came back
to the back and folded down the isle seat in front of him and started talking
with him. He showed him the Bangladesh
bible. He wanted one too, so we got his name and phone number and let him see
the pictures. The Kurd that was sitting right next to the Bangladesh was leaning over to see if he could
read the Bangladesh
bible. Jim asked the Kurd if he would like to have a Kurd bible to read. He
said yes, very much so, and promised that he would diligently read one if he
could have one. So we took his name and phone number.
Then the man
sitting in front of the Kurd, turned around in his seat and said, do you have a
Russian bible? We said no but we could get him one. Jim went into his briefcase
and just happened to have a little book, 50 pages, IN RUSSIAN on how to know
God. He took it and was reading it intently all the way to Nicosia. All the while, Jim is carrying on
with the Englishman about the Gospel, and the last days events of prophecy, and
the antichrist and what all is happening. Most know a little English so there
was church in the back of that bus all the way to Nicosia. The Englishman was amazed how
everyone around us wanted bibles. I remember Jim telling the Englishman that
God had this bus ride all set up before He created the world and there was not
much the Englishman could say but Amen, which is pretty unusual for an
Englishman these days.
We got to Nicosia and walked to the
bible book store. On the way we saw the little old man that we always see. He
is always so glad to get a paper in Greek from Jim. He was happy. We spent some
time at the bible book store visiting with the lady that runs the store looking
at all the bibles and choosing the ones we needed. This bible store is a REAL
bible store - all there is is bibles - in any language - just bibles. The
bookstore lady is now orthodox, not just say orthodox but doing orthodox, no more
prayers to Mary, and now she is not just selling bibles but reading her own
every spare minute. Alleluia. She had just started reading in the book of First
Peter while we were getting the bibles we needed. She had just finished James.
I told her that I had just read James. It is so wonderful and covers so much of
what it really means to be orthodox and not just say we are orthodox. She
helped us to make sure that we were not getting new translations. She no longer
wants to get the newest translation, but whatever translation that is
translated from the King James Version. Thank you Jesus! We told her goodbye
and we hoped to be seeing her soon, if the Lord willed.
On our way back
to the bus we stopped by a Christian Sandwich Shop to have an orange juice. We
always like to visit with the man that owns the shop, he always greets us with
open arms. He always lets Jim use his phone and Jim called Pastor Banjo to come
join us at the sandwich shop. While we were waiting for Pastor Banjo, we look
down the street and here comes the Bangladesh we met on the bus,
holding his bible in his hand. We were all amazed we ran into each other. Nicosia is the Capital of
Cyprus and the largest city on this island. There are many, many people that
live there and there are many busses of tourists that go there. So it was
something to see him again among all the people. We all praised the Lord when
he got to where we were. He was in a hurry to get to the bus stop so we gave
him some tangerines we had, and he went on his way.
got there and we visited. Jim knew, in the Spirit, something was happening with
him before we got to Nicosia.
Jim asked Pastor Banjo if he wanted to tell what was bothering him. It was some
real difficult pastoral stuff and Jim took him quickly to several sections of
the scriptures which directly address the problems with which he is dealing.
Pastor Banjo was reading along in his bible and putting book marks in the
sections of scripture where Jim was reading with him. He was full of joy at how
clearly the scriptures spoke to the problems that he is now facing. He walked
with us back to the bus area and we could tell God had really spoken clearly to
him and lifted a burden. Jim and Banjo were able to talk more on the way to our
bus. It was time for him to leave and pick up his wife. He had pep in his step
now. Alleluia Yeshua!
While we were
waiting for the bus to Limassol a thin young man was standing near us. Jim
asked him are you Bangladesh?.
He said yes. Jim said are you hungry? He said yes. Jim gave him the money for
the bus ride to Limassol figuring that he was having to decide if he was going
to ride the bus or eat, because he could not do both. Jim said I have something
that I want to show you. Jim showed him his marked up Bangladesh
bible that he teaches the Bangladeshis from. I wish you could have seen the JOY
on his face. He wanted THAT bible, but Jim couldn't give that one to him. I was
the one to mark the key scriptures in the Bangladesh bible for Jim and I tell
you it was no small chore. Praise the Lord! I did it with the help of Jesus! So
yes, we got his name and phone number. His last name is Kahn-Joy- would you
believe? JOY! Alleluia!
The bus for
Limassol came in and the people are getting on. The same young man got on the
Limassol bus. When we got to Limassol the bus stop before the one we get off
at, from the back of the bus, comes the Pakistani that we met first thing in
the morning at the bus stop. We, of course, had no idea he was on the bus until
he was getting off. Jim dug in the bag of bibles we bought and got the Urdo?
Pakistani language bible, and gave it to him. He was shocked, and so happy to
have the word of God in his own language. Alleluia!
Then would you
believe, the Bangladesh we
met at the stop in Nicosia
got off at the same bus stop we did. He lived a block, in the other direction
from the direction we go, we are several blocks from there. We hope to see him
at the Bangladesh
bible study that Jim teaches every Wednesday night, and we can give him his
bible then, or, we have his phone number. We can call the numbers we have, and
that means we can see them again. Alleluia! Needless to say - This was a day
that the Lord had made and had planned from before He founded the world. Thanks
be to God! He is an Awesome God! Alleluia Yeshua!

knows where the harvest is ready! Now more than ever, as we draw closer and
closer to His return, the Good News needs to go forth where the doors are still
open and where people are yet unreached. I ask you to support them NOW, and Lay

More people have been killed for their faith in Jesus Christ, in Africa since 1997, than all martyrs of all history. Just
because CNN does not report the massive killing of Christians in Africa does not mean that it is not happening. God has
graciously and miraculously spared the recent attempts to murder me. Alleluia!
has given me a call to preach to the unreached peoples of this world. In Nigeria, we are
trying to establish a community of faith and refuge. It is in one of the most
remote and unreached areas in Nigeria,
West Africa. What God has already done over
there and the hunger that has been created in the people for the gospel of
Jesus Christ coupled with the fact that no one is reaching those precious souls
with the gospel, has created a heavy burden in me to be here and preach the
Good News of the Kingdom
of Heaven. We must have
this community of faith and refuge. God has already provided 2000 acres of
land. Most of the roads are not motorable. There is no electricity. Most church
services are held under trees.
is a great need and we are appealing to your hearts for your help to reach
them. A PA system, Bibles, medicines, portable electric generators, and
clothing are just some of the items which are desperately needed. Our monetary
goal is $250,000, which will help us build this community of faith and refuge
for the besieged saints in Africa. We have no
food and must have food until God can help us plant and harvest a crop. It is
amazing what this small amount of money will accomplish in that part of the
world! However, right now I have no food and no money and I am trusting God,
Who has called me to this work, to touch the hearts of some of His people who
will help us.
