Praise and Prayer Request

I am continually overwhelmed by God's grace and love.  The past 2 weeks at the Soup Kitchen have been incredible to see how God works.  Our translator has not showed up several times but God has always provided another one!  The number of men for the Soup Kitchen has been down some but the past 2 weeks the attendance has been great.  Last week we had 25 men and this week we had 15 men!  Those staying for the Bible study are also increasing.  We had 12 the previous week stay and this week all 15 men stayed!!  It's amazing to see them so engaged with the Word of God.  Each week they continue to ask more questions and remember more from the previous week.  Lots of Bibles have been passed and some of the men are now asking for Bibles for their wives!  My prayer is that the Word of God will penetrate their hearts and they will see their need for salvation and accept Jesus as their Savior.

On Wednesday we were able visit a new township that we would like to see a new church planted in.  The people were very receptive to us and gave us lots of information about the community.  Please pray for relationships to continue to be built that will lead to starting a Bible study that will lead to forming a church.
