MISSIONARY NEWS - THE FINKS - We praise the Lord for what He has done in building His Church here in the village of Cheriu. Please continue to pray that His people will learn to live for their Savior by faith more and more each day. Life is difficult for them and their need is great. In addition, we thank the Lord for supplying all of the funds, personnel, and supplies for the new building. We pray that the building will be completed in time for our Dedication Service on December 22nd and that God would bless the people at the service for His glory. Tim has been asked to do a few PEP trips with the full-time PEP instructor. PEP stands for “Pastoral Enrichment Program.” This is a “special assignment” ministry of Baptist Mid-Missions whose purpose is to encourage, challenge, and equip national pastors on various mission fields around the world. Pray for Tim as he begins a two-week ministry in Nepal and India on November 28th. The first week he will be in Nepal serving as a Conference speaker in Kathmandu. The second week he will be teaching in a Bible School for the national leaders in Manipur, India. In addition, he will be preaching in several churches in both locations. Please pray for strength, spiritual fruit, safety, and God’s grace in order to minister to these eager and godly national leaders.
