Because You Give . . .

The following was adapted from the December prayer letter of Brad and Dorothy Wood, serving in Dominican Republic.

Because you give to the Great Commission Fund—because together we walk as co-laborers with Jesus—we take others by the hand and introduce them to Him also. We witness stories from those who have been touched by His hand:

Carmen testifies to the miracle wrought by the Lord when her husband was shot by car thieves, but not killed, in front of their apartment. 

At a “Baseball Chapel” one Sunday, a professional player prayed with Brad to receive Christ.

After the March 2011 tsunami and earthquake in Japan, Luci didn’t know whether her son was dead or alive. She shared with our small group that he was found alive after being missing for three months. Now he is in a Tokyo hospital, recuperating from tuberculosis. 

Thadea is very pleased that she is learning to pray. In her home country of Bulgaria, she believed that praying was the work of the priests alone. 

After reading the account in Acts 8 of the Ethiopian man who was baptized after understanding the good news of Jesus, Yani said that she had always desired to be baptized. Our Bible study group was able to explain that baptism is identification with Jesus Christ and with other believers. She then asked the Lord to come into her life. 

Merary comes from a country where less than half of 1 percent of the population believes in Christ.  However, here Merary can hear of the Savior on a daily basis!

Thank you so very much for your prayers! We could not be here without you. 

What You Can Do

Praise God that because of gifts to the Great Commission Fund, Dorothy and Brad—along with their Alliance colleagues around the world—are able to devote their lives to finding lost people.

Pray that many more Dominicans will come to faith through the ministry of our Alliance team in the Dominican Republic. Join in praying for Alliance workers around the world, many of whom are ministering to those who have never heard the good news.

Give to the Great Commission Fund—partner in Living the Call together with Alliance workers like our team in Dominican Republic.
