I trust all is well with you and also your new year in 2019.
Allow me to bring you up to date: 2018 has been a year of challenge, change and new beginnings. Lots of preparations, building relationships, sharing good news, starting up new churches and following up with new believers. God has shown me clearly that He has called me for this; with City Vision Church o Witness Mongolia, 80-100 people have heard the gospel of Jesus. 8 of these received Christ and 15-20 are attending and bringing their families to church happily. Now I realized why Jesus said that the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few. Because if we submit ourselves to his calling, he fights and works before us. This would not have been possible with all of you my friends; your prayers, support, and some of your participation. Continue reading…

Campus Ministry - Wenatchee Valley College
Jessica Mayo serves as the Director of the Campus Ministry and Chi-Alpha pastor at WVC and is currently the only active full-time missionary to the 3500+ students who attend the school. The major focus of the ministry is reconnecting students to Christ, whether that means reaching students who have never heard of Jesus before or building a space in which Christian students can feel free to explore and ask questions about their faith.
Right now our ministry consists of a weekly service, two bible studies, a leadership team of both students and community volunteers, intentional disciplining of Christian and non-Christian students, and regular outreach efforts.

Teresa Stenoien is a missionary from Manson serving in the Gambia, West Africa with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism - ABWE is an unaffiliated, independent Baptist missions agency providing like-minded churches with vital services to expedite their Great Commission Ministry.
“Everyday we strive to share His story of hope, build communities of faith, and serve the world with love. But we don’t just want to send missionaries. We want to spark global missions movements that extend beyond ourselves — where local leaders are trained, mission-minded churches are planted, and believers are compelled to carry the message of Jesus to every nation.” (ABWE Vision Statement)
The Spiritual Need in The Gambia
In The Gambia, 90 percent of the population is Muslim, 10 percent is Catholic, and 2 percent claim indigenous beliefs. Less than 1 percent are evangelical Christians. According to the Joshua Project, there are still 17 unreached people groups in The Gambia, including the Wolof people.
The Wolof language is wide-spread in The Gambia, with the majority of people groups in the country understanding it. Although the official language is English, in the interior, local languages are predominant. As a result, evangelism must be done in the local language in order to be effective. Rural and urban ministries are done in the Wolof language, ministering to Muslims and indigenous speakers who have been unreached by the gospel.
Some Muslims have come to faith in Jesus Christ, and many others are hearing God’s Word on a regular basis. The fields in The Gambia are ripe to harvest, but the laborers are few.
ABWE in The Gambia
Muslim ministry is at the heart of ABWE's focus in The Gambia. The vision is to have church planters strategically located in every region of The Gambia so that we can evangelize, disciple, and prepare Muslims to lead the local churches of the future. Our missionary team is reaching out to areas surrounding each of the ministry bases, but in order to have repeat contact with many people, we need a larger team.
To date, we are having great success reaching the Gambian people through medical work, agriculture, literacy development, radio ministry, and education. Wolof-speaking people are calling each week to receive more information about the Bible’s teachings. We desperately need additional missionaries who can help us respond to The Gambia’s growing hunger for the truth.
Additionally, it is important for missionaries here to learn the local Wolof culture and language and initiate redemptive relationships with the Wolof people and other Muslim- background people groups. Working alongside Gambian leaders, missionaries will help them develop strong, healthy churches throughout the unreached communities.
Teresa Stenoien is supported by your generous gifts and offerings as she serves Gambia, West Africa as a missionary nurse. She is also a gifted teacher and shares her experiences regularly in her newsletter called “Teresa’s Tales”

The compassionate ministry to an often-forgotten segment of society—women—has made Shikarpur Christian Hospital (SCH) in Pakistan a beacon of hope in an otherwise bleak world. The ministry of the doctors and nurses, both national and expatriate as well, the work of the Bible women and staff members who minister the Gospel to patients and anxiously-waiting family members has been of eternal value. Both have opened doors of opportunity for the Gospel in villages and homes throughout the immediate area.
As Christian missionaries, we are His light in the darkness of Pakistan. This is why we continue to minister here to the many patients who have come to the hospital. Each day they are able to experience the care we are giving, and hear of the One who cares for them!

Cornelio & Cailene Vargas are promoting education and encouraging a personal relationship with Jesus in Costa Rica.
The School is called the School of Languages & Arts. This ministry currently has about 60 students and one of the primary goals in the curriculum is teaching English. For students to get good jobs in Costa Rica, pro fluency in English is required.
Their goal this year is to accumulate enough funds to build a small school house since the demand is great.

Alan and Marsha Barr are directors for Bridges International in Seattle, WA, an outreach to international students and scholars through CRU (previously Campus Crusade for Christ). Bridges International is a non-profit, Christian organization that exists to serve and mobilize the international student population in the USA and abroad. Many of the staff have lived, studied, and worked overseas. We understand the unique challenges facing international students. An estimated one-million of the new generation of world leaders are here in America right now. They have come to our colleges and universities as students and post-doctoral researchers. Among them are the most talented and resourceful young men and women from many nations closed to traditional Christian missionary outreach. As staff members with Cru for over 45 years, the Barrs are dedicated to helping to fulfill our Lord's Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) in these strategically important nations through their leaders-in-the-making. That means winning them to Christ, building them in their relationship with him, and then sending them back to win, build, and send others in their homelands. (Please watch the inspiring two-minute video from Bridges International linked here about Cru's strategy for reaching internationals in the US: https://vimeo.com/26188683 )
The Barrs lived in China for nearly 15 years. Now they apply the Cru strategy in Seattle with scholars from China and other nations of "The 10/40 Window"—the places in the world least reached with the Good News of God's love, forgiveness, and power for living through Christ. Alan also trains and coaches student and community volunteers locally in Seattle as well as leaders who have returned to their homelands, equipping them with the ministry skills needed for effectiveness in helping fulfill our Lord's Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
The Barrs invite you to join their personal team of ministry partners who provide the prayer and financial resources without which their ministry would be impossible.
Flying H Youth Ranch
The Flying H Youth Ranch is a Christian residential program for teenage boys who are struggling within their families.
Founded in 1962, the Ranch has served over 1,000 boys and families, emphasizing concern for helping the entire family and encouraging faith in Jesus Christ and the Bible.
We exist to bring these young men and their families to God's perspective and standards of family living. Our desire is to enable the boys to build and re-build relationships. In addition to this we want to help them learn to overcome destructive decisions, have accomplishment academically and physically, form moral and responsible codes as well as learn discipline and obedience while learning to view themselves as unique and valuable.
Flying H Youth Ranch is an 18 month program designed for difficult and troubled teenage boys. Our program focuses on long-term change, unlike the usually short-term progress that military schools and boot camps provide. We have assisted hundreds of families who can no longer control their son and are fearful for his future.

“To practice and proclaim the life-changing message of the Lord Jesus Christ in the world’s most spiritually receptive places.”
Prayer: Knowing that effective evangelism and conversion depend on God, NOT human effort, we value building this ministry on prayer.
Church-Centered: Believing we are part of the church, not a substitute for it, we pledge to engage as many Bible-believing, evangelical churches as possible in the initial invitation, preparations, actual outreach event and follow-up.
Disciples Not Decisions: We are committed to making disciples, not decisions, by helping new believers grow spiritually through Bible study, prayer, witness, and church integration.
Personal Witness: We value loving, intentional, personal witness. Therefore, we seek to encourage and equip Christians to be consistent witnesses to the unreached around them and invite them to our special event.
Volunteer-empowered: Believing that every member of the body of Christ is a “minister,” our goal is to recruit, organize and train large numbers of Christians to assist in all aspects of our outreach efforts.
Pledge to Integrity: By applying the highest ethical standards in finance, promotion and follow-up, MSI strives to be a leader in ministry and personal integrity.
