Greetings from Singapore

Dear Friends,

We send you greetings from Singapore. We are settled in, presently teaching our 4th Bible course since November, we are calling the school Singapore International Bible Institute (SIBI), news about the our minister training program is being broadcast to neighboring countries (Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, China, India, etc.) with inquiries coming in regularly, we are very pleased with the progress being made.

Goracke Update - April

Dear Family & Friends,

Greetings to all of you! The month of April proved to be an exciting month of activities for our family. So without delay I’m going to proceed with what has occurred and what will be happening in the near future… Lord willing!

Support Search... HE Provides!!!!

Dear Family and Friends,

As with the account of Abraham, The Lord commanded the man of faith not to lay a hand on the boy Isaac. In place of the boy, "Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, 'On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided'." (Gen.22:13-14 NIV)

Goracke Update

Brethren,

We are preparing to leave tomorrow morning (Friday) for two meetings with two definite supporters. The first is with the Eastwood church in Hutchinson, KS. They have given me both the am worship time and a special afternoon "Mission Study" time to preach and give our presentation about the Singapore work.

From there we will go to Shawnee, OK to meet with George's friend (reference/lead), who has informed me of his and possibly other individual committments. From there we will probably visit the Memorial Rd church in Edmond, OK who helped us with a one time gift.

Also we are trying to arrange other meetings with interested churches in MO, KY, AL and possibly others. We have one "definite anytime" meeting invitation with a church in KY, but would really like to firm up other opportunities to make the trip more economical as well as fruitful from other visits along the way.

Prayer Request from the Goracke's

Dear Family & Friends,

I know many of you have been anxiously awaiting the response to my phone meeting from this past Friday evening concerning the financial support possibility that I wrote and asked you to be praying about. That Friday meeting extended into a second phone meeting on Monday morning, by which time I was able with the help of dear friends, to get our packet information into the hands of the considering party. After that meeting, like many of you, I waited as patiently as possible until I received a phone call from the considering party late this afternoon (Tuesday).

In answer to all of our prayers, this party has committed to a generous one time offering with the consideration of contributing even more in the future after a face to face meeting. So it is our plan to visit with this party soon and to attempt to arrange as many other meetings as is possible with other interested churches and Christians.

Goracke Update - March

Dear Family & Friends,

Incredibly, another month in this year is almost gone! But it has certainly been enjoyable to finally see spring arrive… even though in this part of the country most people would never agree that it is really here. We had 3 inches of snow after the first day of Spring officially arrived and it is still possible that our April showers might be snow showers. The temperature continues to get below freezing every night, but the days are warming up fast! On to the news of this past month!

Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are happy to report to you that our plans for returning to our mission work in Asia are finalized and by the first week in April we hope to be settled in Singapore for the next session of classes. This will be our last newsletter from Lubbock, the next should come to you from Singapore in a new format.

Goracke Update

Dear Brethren,

With new news coming in by email this past weekend, I received word that a couple more supporters are coming on board with us. Our monthly commitment is now at 77% if all stay aboard. This of course, includes approximately $11,000 of extra one-time funds that we are rolling over towards our 1st year monthly needs. You know what that means for our 2nd year needs.
