Meeting Ilina

Greetings. We had a great time of study, fellowship and reunion at our leadership seminar today! The UBI classroom was filled with graduates, students and local Christians for our time of fellowship together. Pictured above is Robert Waller teaching those in attendance about the need for servant leadership. Natasha Maluga is pictured doing her usual excellent job of interpreting. It was so great to see these former students and see that they are still faithfully serving in the Kingdom!

IBIA May Update

I am posting the newsletter for those that are not in my email address book. We are so amazed and encouraged by what God continues to do among and with us. I am humbled and energized to be involved in God's, "Mission Earth." He is constantly out working in the hearts of His harvest. What a privilege and responsibility to be out there with Him. I am encouraged and hope that this lets you see a little bit of what He is doing - from my perspective - in Albania.

A bowl of borscht and a ham and cheese omelet

Greetings. It's been a little dark and dreary in Ukraine. For those in the Lubbock area, sometimes water falls from the sky and these things called clouds fill the air. It's awesome, but dreary and wet. At the end of each month, the students scholarships begin to get a little short and Sasha Maluga (who replaced me as the Dean of Students and an instructor at UBI) cooks borscht for the students, faculty and guests and there is a big banquet in the school kitchen. This really brightened the day and we had a wonderful evening of food and fellowship!

Back in the "former" USSR

Greetings! Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus!

"The farmer sows the word …"
(Mark 4:14)

Dear Family in Christ …

Hello once again from God's fields in the little country of Estonia. You are in our thoughts and prayers often. We thank Him for those of you who continue to remember us—two farmers sowing His word in this place while you sow His word where you live.

SOWING HIS WORD IN TALLINN …

"As you go... make disciples" - Report from Tobey and Kathy Huff

Dear Brethren, Family and Friends

Si Na Bula (Good Morning) from Fiji

Many of will note that in my newsletters since we have been here I mention golf and the playing of such (if you call it that) on a regular basis. I am not good at it and the Lord has certainly shown me that I will never make a living at it. The recreation options are very very limited here and forget about socializing after dark. It seems that maybe some of you might have taken this to mean that playing golf is all I do over here and that while you are slaving away making a living I am asking you to support me for a life of recreation.

This was a (constructive) comment I received which brought this to my attention: "I think your continual mention of the golf games is a negative to, perhaps, many of your present and would-be supporters. I think they view it as they would here in the USA as being a fairly expensive recreational activity for someone who is always asking for more money. I refrained from mentioning this, but after one of our own leaders made such a remark to me I thought that perhaps the time had come to mention it to you." I am sorry if some of you have come to that conclusion.

News from Craig and Tomya Peters - mid April

Dear friends

The day is coming quickly … June 2nd …. The Peters family takes off for Australia. The attached Newsletter has some exciting details and some important instruction for how you can help make sure this is a long term work. We are so thankful for what so many have done for us and the work. We are also so looking forward to being reunited with our Church family in Australia. This whole experience has been humbling … and empowering … when we see our God work!

Prayer Request for Billy Moore

Hello everyone. Prayer is what keeps us going on the road to victory. Please share with me my prayer requests in your peticiones to God. Billy

• I have begun attending an AA group here in Playa Azul three times a week. I still go to my group in Lazaro two days a week as well. There are only two of us in the group here in Playa Azul. We are thinking about having an event of public information here in Playa to help us recruit new members. Please pray for this.
• Pray for my continued recovery and strength in the Lord.
• We are going to have our first leadership retreat here at our home in Playa Azul. The dates are May 1-3. The church leaders from our work in Mexico City are coming for a weekend retreat and seminar. We pray this will be the first of many.
• Pray for the new church in Lazaro Cardenas. We are growing in number and spiritual growth. Malcolm shared our vision for the coast of México and the church received it with great enthusiasm.

Ministry Training - Asia from George Carman

Hilda and I joined 451 people for a victory dinner in Lubbock, TX on April 19, 2008. The dinner marked the end of a 3 year capital campaign to raise $12 million dollars.

This was the largest fund raiser in the history of Sunset and was a daunting task. Shortly after we gathered, Truitt Adair, the Executive Director for SIBI announced the results of the campaign. Our brotherhood donated a whopping $13,070,894.00! That’s right, we exceeded our goal by over 1 million dollars! To God be the glory!
