The South African Report - Jerry Hogg

Isaiah 59:19 – “From east to west everyone will fear him and his great power. He will come like a rushing river, like a strong wind.” Man has always respected the wind’s force. Wind has the power to destroy, but also to restore, supply (as with windmills), to cleanse (sweep clean or vacuum). God often used the wind for good: to dry up the land after the Great Flood so Noah and his family could get on with their lives; to deliver Moses and those fleeing from the Egyptian army; to cause the sound of a great army when Israel was outnumbered by enemies.

September Video Report from Australia - Craig and Tomya Peters

Dear Partner

The following link will take you to a site to download our newest video. It’s contents were taken while waiting on news of Hurricane Gustav. Our Partnership region was greatly spared by that storm. Little did anyone believe that Ike would follow behind and devastate our Partnership region.

Apollos Institute Update

Just thought that you would like to know what is happening with Apollos Institute and the growing demand for leadership training.

AIMers in Port Elizabeth

I can't wait to get back to the USA, download my pictures and let you see a good picture of our Port Elizabeth, South Africa AIMers! What a thrill to visit them and see the incredible things that they are doing in the Kingdom!  They are working with school children, working in congregations, and so much more.  But look at the picture (I'll give you a second to look)... Does this look like the mission field to you??? Seriously. What a beautiful place.  They have great beaches, restaurants, and you can even get multiple English channels on TV! Of course, our AIMers get dirty feeding the hungry, serving orphans, assisting widows, teaching classes, working in the congregations, etc. It is still mission work and we should all be proud of them. Beautiful places are just as stained by sin as any other place and have just as many hidden dangers and trials.

In South Africa

Greetings!  I have a good internet connection! I am in South Africa in a flat located in the Southern Africa Bible College building in Johannesburg. I now have internet, but no monkeys racing around in the trees above my head. I guess it's a fair trade off. I am taking good pictures and will share some with you upon my return. Tomorrow I head to Port Elizabeth to see our AIMers and then will be off to Botswana. What a blessing to be able to serve God this way!

The future for Malawi looks promising. I forsee an army of evangelistic Christian soldiers taking the region by storm. We witnessed baptisms, Bible studies, bicycles that were ridden to other nations on mission trips, and so much more!  It was an evangelistic thrill!  It revives my soul to see such a spirit of evangelism present in the local church. We have much to teach. We have much to learn.

News from Strasbourg - Daniel Frerot

It has probably been a while now since have heard from us. I know I have kept up with many of you through individual emails, but for a while I was unable to access our website for reasons I could not understand. Finally the problem was fixed a few days ago thanks to Pamela, and once more I can post our reports on it. I apologize for this time of silence if you haven’t received an email to let you know in the in-between.

Lima Report July and August 2008

In Acts 16 the lives of the Philippian jailor and his family were drastically changed in a moment. A powerful earthquake destroys both his house and his livelihood. In desperation he draws his sword to end his life. Waking up to find everything you thought was secure and permanent lying in ruins at your feet is something that the people in Chincha understand. On the 15th of August 2007 a mighty earthquake destroyed the homes and claimed the lives of the peruvian people in the towns of Chincha, Ica, and Pisco.

On The Road Again

It's that time again.  Time for another excursion to witness the great things that God is doing around the world and to participate as God opens doors.  It is amazing to see what Sunset is doing on the African continent.  It is such a blessing to serve at the Sunset International Bible Institute in the International Studies Division through our 57 ministry training schools.  Mark Samsill and I will be visiting preachers, teachers and ministry trainers in Malawi, Botswana and South Africa. Normally, this trip would also include Zambia, but I was able to meet with David French of the Mapepe Bible College while he was in Lubbock.  It should be a great opportunity.

Are You Thirsty?

I just finished reading an article on water that stated "water has been ranked by experts as second only to oxygen as essential for life". There were many interesting statistics noted such as the human body is from 55-75% water. 2/3 thirds of your weight is water. You need 2 1/2 quarts of water per day to be healthy. Some of the problems the article listed that could be caused by drinking too little water were: asthma, allergies, hypertension, excess body weight and even some emotional problems. Does that make you thirsty?
