When we were reading your email of the information of sending me the funds US$ 2000 to print the Bible, tears were falling from our eyes as we were so glad, a very good news for us. As we are working to print the Bibles, they will be ready the Bibles, when the team comes to us. Thank you very much, you are so good to us for the Lord's work for Mnmar.
I will be praying for the increase funding for the month too.

A 2011 review and a 2012 preview!
First off, we want to thank all of you for your financial support in 2011 and most especially for your prayers! In 2011, we made trips to India, Philippines, Vtnam, South Africa, Ghana, Togo, Liberia, Kenya, Guatemala, and Russia; we helped support local work in all of the above countries as well as Pkstan, Mnmar and Sr Lnka; and every week people from over 40 countries received our weekly spiritual articles! One new development last year was the addition of Leona Matson as the FM youth leader. We are also blessed by the ongoing work of our full-time missionaries, Dennis Hilman and Ryan Ruotsala, and the hard work done by the Foreign Mission Board members. The board keeps in touch with weekly updates and holds meetings as needed. We earnestly pray that God will continue to use us as we strive to follow His commandment to preach the gospel to the world.
Besides continuing our work in the above countries and our ongoing correspondance with 30+ other countries, we also have a few new plans for 2012. We are prayerfully considering a trip to Chna and ask that you would pray for us to use wisdom in that decision. We are also hoping that more of you would be called to join us on one of the many trips we will be taking in 2012. Check out the Monthly News below for more information!
