Getting the Word out

We just had a Deaf pastor come in to the office yesterday. He had heard that Matthew 11-20 was available, and bought ten copies to use in his church and with his unsaved friends. It was so exciting to see his enthusiasm for reaching the Deaf community with the Word of God.

Pray for him as he gives out the copies, and for the people receiving them. May we see many more like him! And thank God for Japan Bible Society, by whose support we can sell Bible portions for only a dollar.

We also had a great visit with the funding person. I may have gotten the “authority to give very large grants” part wrong, but he was a great guest, an eager learner, and a wealth of information on the process of comprehensive planning. We thank God for the great timing of his visit.
