Prayer Letter/Ministry Update
This weekend we launched the first “Facilitator Training” for EnTRUST in Kosova! We have been praying, planning and preparing for about five years to start EnTRUST in Kosova – and now it is actually happening! Melissa, Lisa and I were a bit nervous as we put together our first training weekend, but, were excited about the ladies that would be participating. There are six ladies from several churches who are participating in the training this past weekend and this coming weekend. They are excited about what they are learning and about how they can pass it on to other women in Kosova. Thank you for your prayers for this program. Please continue to pray with us for God’s direction as these six ladies begin to put together the details and logistics of the course for the future.
PRAYER AND HEALING
Two weekends ago, together with the other two church plants in Gjilan, we had a special seminar about prayer for healing. Following the seminar, we had a time of prayer for one another and for friends and family that we had invited who had physical needs. It was a wonderful time of seeing God bless others through His body. One man came to ask prayer for his daughter (about 19 yrs) who suffers from a mental illness. He was so touched by the prayers and the message of the Gospel that he returned the next evening for prayer and stayed for the church service. That Monday morning he was waiting with his daughter outside of the center when the workers came to open up for the day. He not only wanted his daughter to be prayed for again, but, wanted her to hear the message that he had heard! Please pray for this man “S” and his daughter (who was not as interested in hearing the message as he was). Pray that God will continue to work his physical and spiritual miracles in their lives.
THANK YOU FOR GIVING
Great Commission Fund – Thank you for your generous giving to the Great Commission Fund. Your gifts enable us to be here in Gjilan and to be a blessing to our friends and church family encouraging, discipling, equipping and giving. Thank you for supporting us.
Gjilan Church Property – We rejoice in God’s provision and your partnership in the purchase of the Resurrection Church Building. We are now moving into stage 2 of this project as we begin to dream and plan about the renovations that need to be made. There is still MUCH work to be done!
Vehicle Fund – Thank you for giving to my vehicle fund. I appreciate your desire to support me in this practical need. I still need to raise about $12,000 in order to purchase something fairly new and reliable. In the mean time … I’m enjoying my bike!! It sure is faster than walking!

The Alliance believes wholeheartedly in the power and necessity of prayer. We cannot “Live the Call Together” unless prayer is central to all we do—in our denomination, in our churches, and in our individual lives.
You can help build Christ’s Church around the world by donating online to the Great Commission Fund. This central funding vehicle allows our international workers to focus on ministry rather than raising financial support.
