June Update 2017
Hey all of you lovely-hearted people!
We are sending out this prayer update because we need your prayer now more than ever. God is faithful — we are growing quickly in eight nations, He continues to lead, guide, direct, comfort and provide. But we need our friends to help! The work we are doing on so many fronts is critically important to children; to the poorest of the poor; to regions and to nations!
Discipling Nations is a big job, but God is bringing forth peoples and nations with Through the Veil — Apostolic Networking; Pacific Hope — Outreach; Pacific Gates Education — Training and Equipping; Ring of Fire Houses of Prayer — The Heart and Fire of what we do; Ring of Fire Economic Development — Hope through Economic Opportunity.
In the Palaung territory, North Shan State, we will begin construction this year on a missions and house of prayer center with our partners among the Palaung, an unreached people group. Help us provide Bibles, practical help and outreach workers to reach the unreached peoples!
In Lashio, Myanmar we are close to finishing construction on the new home of Shan Regional Evangel Bible Institute, a Pacific Gates Education project. SREBI trains indigenous Christian leaders in this major hill tribe area, sending pastors, missionaries and evangelists into tribal villages to establish churches, mission centers and humanitarian works. With the new facilities, SREBI programs will train up to 500 native pastors and missionaries. Help us finish construction and provide textbooks and teachers to reach the hill tribe people!
In Thailand we will be starting construction on a church, missions and house of prayer facility with our partners outside Pattaya, one of the world centers of the sex trade. We need everything! Help us reach Thailand and offer freedom to the oppressed!
In Cambodia we are in the middle of an ambitious project providing an education center and living quarters for children left orphaned by the continued impossible economic situation. We do outreach into remote villages drilling water wells, setting up English classes, telling the people about Jesus, praying for and loving the people in this devastated land.
In South Korea we continue to press forward training pastors at leadership seminars, teaching in our regular classes, and sowing into the people and the land as we plan to go into a free North Korea. Help us establish Pacific Gates University here in Korea so that we can expand our training efforts; be able to plant satellite campuses in other nations; and have the resources and the manpower to bring the House of Prayer, Education and Outreach into North Korea once the wall comes down!
Our ultimate goal is to put everything together! House of Prayer Centers — featuring Schools, Outreach facilities, Community Development facilities and Economic functions established as outposts of heaven, bringing life and hope to regions and nations around the Pacific Rim. These centers will look different in each locale and among each people group they serve: but they will all share the same functions of lifting up the Name of Jesus among the people and over the land, and lifting up the people with hope that they desperately need.
We Need Your Help! Please pray, work and give to support this important Kindom work! We have others who are crying out for our partnership and help; we are holding off right now, trying to be good stewards of what God has already given us. We need your help!
