A girl started to cry during chapel

at a Christian school where Skip Kite was teaching.  A teacher removed her from chapel.  They later returned and all seemed fine.

A few weeks later, the same teacher approached Skip.  “I’m so glad to see you.  I want to tell you what happened at chapel.  When I took the girl out, she told me that she had been very bad and needed to be forgiven like Mr. Skip had said.”  The teacher prayed with her as she trusted Christ for salvation.  The teacher related that she couldn’t believe the peace she saw on the girl’s face.  Skip & Rosie Kite (USA) are grateful for the part God allowed them to have in bringing another soul to Christ.

“Our 15 schools have the reputation of accepting all children…

We are proud of that.  So when a student who is deaf came to the second grade class at Amou Oblo, Togo it didn’t phase anyone,” Christy Sopcisak reports. “They loved him from the beginning and wanted to know how to help him learn.  God provided two missionary colleagues who have been able to teach him and his class sign language.

“His teacher appreciated the help.  But she kept asking how we were going to teach him about Jesus.  I was touched by her passion for him to know Jesus personally.  I love that our teachers are concerned with our students’ spiritual lives before academics.

“It made me realize how much the deaf community is an unreached people group.  As we thought about reaching this deaf student with the gospel, we were able to visit a deaf school with 42 students where we showed the Jesus Film with a deaf interpreter.  The students better understood Jesus and His sacrificial death on the cross.”

“I don’t want to be a Christian anymore”

 …a young lady who accepted Jesus as her Savior at a winter retreat in Quebec uttered.  Jerad & Wanda Mellette admitted, “I didn’t know how to process that statement.  In all my years of ministry, I’ve never heard that one.”

Her father is an “ex-Christian”, who had grown up in the Catholic church and walked away from the religion.  He thinks the Mellettes have brainwashed his daughter.  Her mother is no less sympathetic and her friends all think she’s nuts.

Jerad & Wanda write, “Please pray for her that she would remain steadfast in her faith.  Pray also for her parents that they would accept Jesus’ gift of salvation.”

 

“She was selling pastries in the street when

we invited her to the first meeting in the new church building in a new neighborhood,” Lucio & Amanda Gallo (Salta, Argentina) reported.  “She came to the meeting!”  Afterward she shared that she and her husband had moved to this place over 15 years earlier.  Because of the distance, they stopped going to church.  She prayed over 10 years for a church to open near her house.  She was overjoyed to see us and has not missed a single meeting.  She sent her boys and neighbors to our summer camp in January, and also brought her daughter and grandson to the church as well to hear the Gospel. God answered prayer!  Little by little her family  is coming back to God!
