The Highlands Youth Camp in Tanzania has many opportunities

…to minister to campers throughout the year.  But June is the highlight of the year!  During that month, 4,000 youth heard the gospel. Of those, 1,300 youth professed faith in Christ!

On another note, Billy & Sarah Brewer also tell about an 11 foot python that was killed on the soccer field behind their home. The Brewers, who have two young children, write, “Oh for the day when the infant will play by the cobra’s den” (Isaiah 11:8).

The inauguration of a new church is an exciting occasion! 

Working with a local pastor, Lonnie & Ruth Hodge are thrilled about the inauguration of their church on August 12, 2018 in Cochabamba, Bolivia.  The Hodges wrote, “On Saturday, we set up 52 chairs, not knowing what to expect.  By the time we had our greeting of one another, the church had filled up. One count was 72 adults and teens plus children. An unofficial count put us at just over 100.  People stayed around for 45 minutes just fellowshipping. They did not appear to want to leave. God exceeded all of our expectations!  We had a terrific day!  Our hearts are overwhelmed!”

The church had been praying for an adequate place to meet. God answered their prayer!  On Saturday, as they were preparing, a lady asked what was going on.  She was told that they were inaugurating a new church.  She replied that she lives across the street and that she would come.   True to her word, she came with her husband and their child.

“About twenty years ago, twins came to children’s camp…

Their parents wanted to take a vacation without them. They instructed them not to change religion nor listen to anything that would encourage them to change. They said, ‘You have a good vacation, have a good time, and we will have a good time also.’

“When the twins returned home, they began telling their parents all the wonderful things they had learned. The parents were impressed and wanted to learn more and were eventually saved and began attending the Bible church in Morelia, Mexico, They have been active in the church ever since, and so have the twins.”

This year one of the twins brought his own children to camp and told Mark & Carole Landis this story.
