World Missions Newsletter / January 2017
A Missions Moment – Isn’t It Time?
In this Missions Moment, Brian shares the importance of surrendering our time, our talents, our resources and more to God. We want to do this because our God loves us and has a plan that far surpasses any plan we could ever dream up. If we surrender to God we will walk in His Power, His Purpose and His Presence as we move forward in life. Isn’t it time to make the necessary changes that will draw us closer to God and deeper into His purposes for us, and what He wants to do through us?

 
TIME TO GO!
SOUTHEAST ASIA MISSION TRIP – February 2017
Please be in prayer for Hector Del Carpio and me as we prepare to minister in Southeast Asia in February. We will connect with Jim Randall, and we’ll visit and minister with the ministries we work with in Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, V________ and Laos. We will do a lot of traveling during this 16-day trip. This is our final newsletter before the trip, so I am going to list below some prayer requests for the trip, and while we’re in Southeast Asia, I’ll post updates on our prayer page www.facebook.com/groups/messageministriesprayer. If you are not a member of that group, please message me on Facebook and ask to be added.
 
 
  • CAMBODIA 
  • Please pray for our visits to the Steung Meanchey and Ang Dong slum communities in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The Ang Dung is where we helped install a water filtration system for the thousands of people who live there. We hope to do some vocational training while we are there and share the gospel with the people. Please pray for our visit to a village a couple hours from Pnomh Penh where we will be sharing the gospel with the hopes of planting a church there.
  • Please pray for our visit to a public school in the slums where we hope to start a children’s ministry outreach that will offer children a good meal and the Word of God. James Sann will be implementing this program with our financial help. We will need to invest around $400 to get some pots and pans, plates, cups, silverware, etc. We may also need to purchase a TV and DVD player to show children’s gospel videos. We welcome your help with reaching these goals. We will fund these efforts on a monthly basis.
  • LAOS – Please be in prayer for our visit to the orphanage/children’s home that we support in Laos.
  • THAILAND & MYANMAR – Please pray for our visit to the northern part of Thailand with David S. We have been supporting indigenous missionaries through FTS ministries in Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, and China. We hope to visit with some of these pastors and do some ministry while we are there. We will be talking to David specifically about doing some ministry with the youth and young adults when we return with a ministry team in July. With God’s help, we plan on returning for a month in June/July 2017.
 

OTHER REQUESTS REGARDING SE ASIA TRIP 

  • Please be in prayer about an opportunity to provide the ministries that we work with in Southeast Asia the chance to broadcast radio shows in their own languages and to share about their ministries through one of our partner ministries, www.onejamnationradio.com.
  • Please pray for God’s provision for this trip and for everything connected with it.
  • Please pray for Jim Randall as he arranges our schedule, visas, and travel plans and as he continues his ministry there.
 

In His Service,  Brian Weller

CHRISTMAS BLESSING PROJECT UPDATE
We I was also encouraged and blessed by the reports about the Christmas Blessing outreaches in Southeast Asia. The reports from villages in Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia caused my heart to rejoice. In some of these areas, a meal was provided, and clothes were given instead of toys. The necessities of life are often the greatest needs in these regions. I have included a couple of pictures here, and I want to thank you for your help with the Christmas Blessing Project. Many lives were saved, and I know of two churches that are being planted in villages in Myanmar because of these Christmas outreaches. We praise God for His faithfulness and for your help. You can see more pictures at our website, www.christmasblessingproject.com
PLEASE PRAY FOR JIM RANDALL 
 
Please continue to pray for Jim Randall as he continues to minister to leaders in SE Asia and around the world.  
 
Leaders like Jim have a very important role in the Kingdom of God today. Through many years of seeking the Lord, studying God’s Word and ministry experience Jim is able to help younger missionaries, pastors, evangelists and leaders to be more fruitful at a younger age and avoid some pitfalls that many fall into to.
