2018 A Year of Opportunities

 
 
We’re both inspired and blessed to look back and see what God allowed us to do together in 2017. Together we took dives of faith to reach people with the gospel, and I sincerely believe God was honored.
 
God changed many lives as the gospel went forth through direct MM mission outreaches and our indigenous partners worldwide.
 
Here is a list of some of the things we did together!
 
  • Thousands heard about Jesus Christ for the first time and many received Christ.  
  • Tens of thousands of meals were provided through the children’s feeding ministries in Peru and SE Asia.
  • Children were taught the Word of God at children’s ministries in Peru, SE Asia and India
 
  • Prefab homes were built for needy families in Peru.
  • Thousands received help through the Peru Flood Relief Project.
  • MM Mission Teams ministered in Peru, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Burma and Laos.
  • People were blessed with the gift of sight and salvation through MM eyeglass clinic outreaches in Peru and SE Asia.
  • Youth in Peru, Vietnam and Cambodia attended MM discipleship and mission training retreats and camps.
  • Indigenous Pastors and Missionaries received financial support to preach the gospel to unreached villages.
  • Indigenous Vietnamese missionaries received motorcycles to travel to unreached villages with the gospel.
  • Many received healing as we prayed for the sick in the name of Jesus.
  • Orphans received food, shelter, education and discipleship at a children’s home /orphanage in Laos.
  • Most recently, your generosity provided gifts and the gospel for thousands of children and adults worldwide through the Christmas Blessing Project.
 
 
We are calling 2018  “A Year of Opportunities.” As we look out on the harvest fields of the world, we feel an eagerness to respond to God and fulfill His call. Throughout the year we will present special opportunities for the family of God to join us in fulfilling Jesus’ Great Commission. Like you, we want to stand before the Lord and hear, “well done, my good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:23).
 
Please keep us in prayer as we go forward into this Year of Opportunities. Together, let’s take dives of faith and trust the Lord to do “more than we could ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). God’s greatness inspires us to do greater things to bring glory to His name and to rescue the lost and hopeless. We pray that God fills your year with opportunities to demonstrate God’s glory to this broken world.
 
CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS IN PANKOI VILLAGE, THAILAND: 
 
On December 25th, we partnered with Free to Serve Ministries to provide a Christmas Blessing Project outreach to 70 unreached villagers in Pankoi Village, Thailand. Our partner Pastor K. has labored as an evangelist and church planter in the Pankoi Village for some time now, and this outreach granted many new converts for him to disciple.
 
On Christmas, Free to Serve ministries gathered the Pankoi Village together for a special Christmas meal, played Christian music and preached the gospel. After the gospel message, 7 villagers received Christ immediately. Others received Christ later that day in private, and 3 more families came to Christ within weeks after the outreach through their new relationship with Pastor K. FTS leader David believes these new converts will soon lead their families to Christ. How it brightens our hearts to hear of salvation among the unreached!
 
During this outreach, God’s hand was also present to heal and deliver from demons. One Pankoi woman had not been able to walk for years, and thus could not work or play a significant role in the village. Our partners prayed for her in the name of Jesus, and to her amazement, God granted her to walk again! Other villagers visited our partners in private to seek deliverance from years of demonic oppression. Jesus set them free from the tormenting spirits and the villagers responded by surrendering their lives to Christ. Jesus is alive, and He loves the unreached people of Southeast Asia!
 
Thank you so much for supporting the Christmas Blessing Project in Southeast Asia. Your financial and prayer support has contributed to God’s great work in the Pankoi Village.
 
Thank you for helping to make this CBP Outreach a reality through your prayers and financial support.
 
Would you please pray for JJ Weller as he spends the next few months in the nation of Peru. He is staying at our mission base in Marquez and is working and ministering alongside the group of pastors and churches that we work with in Peru.
 
Please pray for God’s direction, anointing, wisdom and health to be on JJ. Please pray for Cynthia Noa our Message Ministries ministry assistant in Peru who is helping JJ organize the different ministry opportunities and helping with translation as well. Thank you! 
 
Please pray that the local churches will be strengthened, challenged and built up though JJ’s messages of encouragement and exhortation.
 
JJ went at his own expense and has not asked for any help with expenses. If you would like to be one of his SENDERS we are putting a donation link below. Thank you!

2016-october-message-min-newsletter-banner
2016-10-09-12-38-28I recently returned from an amazing trip to Peru. What a blessing it was and is to work with some of the most dedicated, humble, and hardest-working pastors and leaders on this planet. It is amazing how far a group of leaders can go and how much they can accomplish when they are walking in unity. 
 
Our leadership team in Peru is standing strong together to fulfill the call of God to reach their great nation through a variety of outreach efforts, mission trips, discipleship training, and evangelism. This includes the wonderful work going on in and through the local Peruvian churches, including the eleven Loaves and Fishes Feeding Centers, the Eyeglass Clinic Outreaches, the Corazones en Fuego youth teams, and the Able Hands Vocational Training Center. It is always sad to leave my good friends in Peru, but as I returned to the USA, I praised God for all He has done and is doing as we walk together in unity, as servants of God to accomplish His purposes and plans.
 
2016-10-13-11-28-43On this trip, JJ, Cort, Antonetta, Garrett, and I were blessed to teach on missions, evangelism, and discipleship at the Corazones en Fuego Youth Missions and Discipleship Retreat in Marquez. We were also blessed to visit various churches and ministries and to conduct outreaches that included eyeglass clinics, children’s ministries, and more! As we step into the future, we are excited about many of the great things that God is doing, including:
 
#1 – PACTO DE VIDA UNIVERSITY: We have the opportunity to bring Pacto De Vida University classes into some of the Peruvian prisons. The classes will be adapted and streamlined into a discipleship course for those in the prisons who are believers. This is something that has been on the heart of Pastor Fabian for quite some time. We met with Dr. Deaton, the founder of Pacto De Vida University, and we are moving forward with the first outreach at a prison in the Huaraz area. Please pray for Pastor Fabian and Cecilia as they launch this new mission outreach. They already pastor two churches in the Lima area, and they are now blessed to have the added help of their son Leo, who has been attending Bible School.
 
2016-10-08-19-37-19
#2 – CORAZONES EN FUEGO GROUPS: We are moving forward with the vision to establish Corazones En Fuego or “CEF” (Hearts on Fire) youth and young adult discipleship and missionary training groups throughout Peru in the regions where the churches we work with have conducted missions trips. Pastor Jose and Pastor Gilberto have established working relationships throughout Peru through their various mission outreaches. Please pray for Diana Del Carpio, who is starting a CEF group in Arequipa.  As I write this newsletter, JJ and Cort are there now to help her establish that ministry.
 
#3 – MESSAGE MINISTRIES MISSIONS BASE: We are excited to have most of the Marquez Roof Project finished. When it’s completed, we will have a better base of operations for Message Ministries and Missions-Peru. As I 2016-10-07-13-33-38have shared before, this base is available for the churches that we work with to have gatherings and retreats of all types, and it provides the CEF Teams with a training location to GO forth from. We are thrilled with how God provided the funds we needed to complete the roof. We still need some funds for the windows, and we are trusting God for the remainder of what is needed. Thank you for your prayers and support.
 
As we work toward spending more time ministering in Southeast Asia and in the “10/40” window, we felt led by the Holy Spirit to build strong the arm of our ministry in Peru. I can joyfully report to you that the Peruvian ministry is now stronger than ever, and I am truly thankful to God for a group of leaders who are so willing to humble themselves before one another and before Him. They are an amazing group of servant leaders, and we know that it is only by God’s grace and power that we have accomplished any of the things we have been able to do. We are truly blessed to be servants of God. 
 
In His service,  Brian Weller

eyeglass-clinic-outreaches-peru
On our recent trip to Peru, our team of 5 from the USA and the Corazones en Fuego Peru mission team worked together to do some Eyeglass Clinics and Outreaches in three different locations.  Praise God for those who received glasses so they can read, work more efficiently, or be able to study in school without squinting.  We also praise God for those who received spiritual sight through the clear presentation of the gospel at the final station of the clinic where we have people ready to pray with people and share the gospel.  Here are a few pictures of the outreaches.

adoniram-judson-following-god-through-trials
I love reading inspirational things that not only inspire and encourage but also challenge and exhort. Living in the USA, it is so easy to get distracted and to prioritize our personal comfort over our contribution to the purposes and plans of God. Many get sucked into the vacuum of self and spend far too much time chasing after their own dreams and desires. All the while, the plans of God are put on the shelf for a more “opportune” time. Have you ever lived that way? Are you living that way now? Wherever you are today, I pray that this newsletter will be a blessing to you. May God use this to either get us back on track with Him, or to help us stay on track with Him and His Kingdom plan.

 adoniram-judson-quote

Since we are now working in Burma (Myanmar) I recently re-read the biography of the first American missionary, Adoniram Judson, who spent his life serving the Burmese people. I was inspired as I read about all the trials that he, his wife Ann, and their family faced in order to fulfill the Great Commission. When they left for the mission field on February 19, 1812, they only had a slight idea of the difficult things that awaited them. Like the faithful missionaries before them, they counted the cost, and went on their way. They died up front — choosing to suffer in order to live out God’s call on their lives rather than to live in comfort at home.
 

The Judsons would go through trials that make ours seem like a vacation. Adoniram was beaten and hung upside down every night by his feet in a prison for being a Christian. He was rejected, whipped, slandered and oftentimes starved. His children and his wife died from disease. But through all this, he never gave up on Jesus, and he never gave up on the call to bring the gospel to unreached Burma. God had not only placed a call in Adoniram’s heart. God had given him a loving burden for the lost souls he was sent to reach. Because he saw the people through the eyes of God’s heart of love, he kept his hands to the plow of Kingdom service in the face of unbearable trials. Over Adoniram’s many years in Burma, he translated the Bible into Burmese. From what I am told, that translation is still the only one available in the country.

2016-09-15-17-44-26
 
God may not be calling us to take the same dives of faith that the Judson’s had to take, but He us calling us to do our part to get the gospel of Jesus to those that have not heard. Thank you to those who are helping us to do our very small part in fulfilling God’s command. Together we can make a big difference — and if we refocus on what is most important, we can make an even bigger difference. Please think about the stats I am including in this newsletter and respond with God’s love.
 
Let’s “up the ante” from taking steps of faith to taking dives of faith. It’s time to dive into the very center of God’s plan to reach every soul with the life saving message of Jesus Christ.

2015 October - ASIA AFRICA Jim Randall Prayer
dscf4438
I’m in Nigeria until early October. I’m not in the Boko Haram area but there are soldiers with automatic weapons and machine gun emplacements at strategic locations.  Reminds me of Pakistan in the early 1980’s.  
 
It is rainy season and lots more rain than Thailand. Traffic is horrible and no one obeys road signs, rules, etc. It is a completely lawless society when there is no policeman around. As I already said, there are lots of soldiers about. There was a huge armoured car in front of the c
hurch I attended and a machine gun emplacement out front with a .50 caliber machine gun.  Most soldiers carry AK-47 type weapons and sidearms. There are actually three churches together and an oil pipeline in the rear. The soldiers were protecting the oil pumping station rather than the churches.
 
The BAM Nigeria conference is just over a week away, 22nd and 23rd.  Please pray that we will be able to mobilize entrepreneurs to start business (missionary) works in surrounding countries as well as in the Muslim north.  We are hoping to ignite a Business Missionary Movement to the remainder of Africa and beyond.  I have friends coming form the US, Australia, Asia and Europe as well as other places in Africa for the conference.  Please pray that it is well attended. 
The remainder of the year looks busy for me in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.  It’s a good thing that I’m only 25 years old (on the inside).  I won’t be 70 for a few weeks yet.  I don’t plan to retire but rather re-fire with the Holy Spirit and keep going till I finish my course, whatever and wherever that may be.  I have determined to live until I die.  God gets to decide when that time will be. I believe that I am immortal until my assignment is done.  Boko Haram can’t touch me without God’s permission.
 
I hope all is going well with you.  Thanks for praying.  My regular e-mail server will not work here because of the volume of spam that comes from juno.  I can still get and send from my cell phone but it is too much to type.  (If you don’t get a response from Jim, that is why.)
 
God bless you and thanks for praying for me,   Jim
 

Please pray for the following:
  • Safety as I travel in Lagos and my meeting schedule. We need to meet with lots of people but have not always been able to get there on time because of HORRIBLE traffic.
  • Favor with people and open doors to meet key leaders.
  • That the conference on 22nd and 23rd will be well attended and
  • people will be inspired to become a new missions force for Nigeria,
  • all of Africa and the world.
  • That I would be able to lose some weight on this trip, and maintain good health and energy.
  • That God would
     use me and fill my mouth with His words wherever I go.

In the process of investing more time and resources in the SE Asia and the 10/40 window weare focusing more of our time in Peru on equipping, training and releasing indigenous ministries there that are less dependent on help from the USA.  There are so many amazing ministers and ministries in Peru and they need less of our help as time goes by.  We will still be taking strategic trips and sending strategic teams as the Lord leads.  In Peru, we continue to support 11 children’s Feeding Center ministries, the Able Hands Vocational Training Centers, the eyeglass clinic evangelistic outreaches, the youth camps etc.
Please pray for our upcoming mission to Peru. We will start off by doing a missions training and discipleship retreat with the Corazones en Fuego group at our mission base in Marquez. This retreat will include some of the youth and young adults that responded to the call to missions at the Peru Youth Camp this past June. My son JJ will accompany me along with Cort Bennett, and Garrett and Antonetta Votaw.  We will also be visiting the churches and some of the other ministries we support in Peru.
 
2016-08-20-19-21-48
Our efforts in Peru at this time are focused on helping the pastors we work with raise up more youth missionaries who can do missions through their local churches as well as with the Corazones en Fuego group.  This group is made up of youth from the various churches we work with in Peru.  Please pray for Pastor Jose Amaya and his wife Amanda as they lead this ministry. In the last year, we have entered a new phase in this ministry and it is growing and expanding like never before.  
 
Also, please continue to pray for the funds still needed to put the roof on at the Message Ministries Missions Base in Peru.  We still need about $3,000 for the roof and another $3,000 to finish the room with windows etc. This base is a launching point for indigenous missionaries and a place of discipleship and training to help reach the nation of Peru with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Gloria a Dios!

AUGUST 2016 MONTHLY VIDEO MISSION UPDATE

 

Salvation-in-Thailand
On our January mission to Southeast Asia, we met Pastor Isara, an indigenous missionary to northern Thailand. Pastor Isara and his family had recently moved from the tribal region to the city to reach the national Thai people with the gospel. I asked David S., the leader of FTS Ministries, which pastors most needed mission support. He pointed us to Pastor Isara and his family and we began sending support to them and their ministry.
 
 
We just received wonderful news from David, how Pastor Isara has been used to lead several Thai people to Christ. The converts were baptized and are getting involved in the church. One of these converts is a non-tribal Thai person, which David called “a breakthrough”, explaining, “It is very difficult to lead non-tribal Thai people to Christ.” We celebrate these conversions, and so do the angels! “There is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:10 NIV).
 
 
While we thank God for what He has done through Isara, we are anticipating what He will do next! God seems to be opening more doors for Pastor Isara to bring the gospel to the unreached people of Thailand. He has been invited to preach the Word of God at a government school — a very rare opportunity. David said, “I believe this is a miracle, because most Thai people look down on tribal people very much.”
 
Will you please pray for Pastor Isara, David, and all those whom they come into contact with? If you would like to support them, just hit the link below and go to our donate page and hit Laos – Indigenous Missionary. 
 
Thank you,  Brian Weller

2016 Burma - Pastor Jayae 2Another indigenous missionary we support, Pastor J_____, has seen the hand of the Lord move in Burma/Myanmar. A Burmese couple had been married for 10 years, but were barren — unable to have any children of their own. Pastor Jayae met this couple, preached the gospel to them, and prayed for the Lord to grant them a child. Soon, both of these seeds had borne fruit. Not only were they born into God’s family — a child was born into their family! God gave them a child of their own.

As a result of this miracle, the couple’s relatives have decided to follow Jesus as well. In celebration of God’s work in their lives, they invited Pastor Jayae to name the child.

Praise God with us! God is moving through these wonderful indigenous missionaries and their families as they GO to reach their nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is through your financial gifts and prayers that we are able to support these true servants of the Lord. Together, God is using us all to reach some of the most spiritually dark places on this planet.

2015 July - MM Newsletter Header

 GOD IS ABLE TO… by JJ Weller

2015 PEru - JJ WellerIn Ephesians 3:20, Paul says that God is “able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think according to the Spirit at work within us.” What is the greatest place of personal holiness that you could ever ask for or think of? The greatest empowerment for ministry? Whatever comes to mind, be sure – it is exceedingly and abundantly below all that God is able to do through the Spirit at work within you. God’s treasury is infinite, and He waits for us to plunder it through prayer and faith. How much depth in our relationship with God is forfeited just because of laziness in prayer?
We all should begin to cry out to God in faith to flood every area of our lives – moral, ministry, and more. After all, He has promised to give the Holy Spirit to whoever asks (Luke 11:13). When we do receive a fresh touch from God for ministry, It’s easy to think that we have “arrived”. We settle for last year’s “anointing”, and never press forward to a higher level of usefulness. Avoiding this, In preparation for our recent Peru trip, we made it a point to ask God to do more through us than He had done the previous year. If God has promised to exceed our expectations, then it is only right to be desperate for more. We should never be satisfied to stay in one place. I remember it being prayed many times in our Peru meetings – “God, we don’t want last year’s results. We want a fresh move of your Holy Spirit.”
 
2015 Cross Street Peru 261
And, praise God, that is what we got! I think that this year we saw more come to Christ than we had ever seen before. Many times, when I saw a lost person, a holy determination came on me, and I thought, “That one, Lord! Bring that one!”. To my delight, the Lord seemed to draw them to Himself almost every time. In times of two-on-one ministry, It was wonderful to watch the Holy Spirit convict of sin, testify to hearts about Jesus, and draw them to repentance and faith within only a few minutes. Almost every person that received prayer for physical healing professed to have been healed. Seeing God’s personal ministry to believers through prayer was quite new to me. Often when we prayed, laying hands2015-06-21 21.13.51 on them, the Holy Spirit seemed to visit them and heal their hearts, convict of sin, impart faith, grant supernatural rest – you name it. It is amazing what God will do through willing vessels – irrespective of age.
 
This world must be reached with the Gospel. Jesus gave up His’ life to save this world. Will we give up our lives for the same purpose? It’s God’s will that this world be saved. Is it yours?

THE HOUSE ON A HILL  by Anne Weller

2015 Cross Street Peru - Seis de Abril
The bus let us off at the corner.  We hiked up a short hill that looked out over Seis de Abril.  This is one of the poorer areas of Nuevo Pachacutec.  People have found their way here from all over Peru.  Most have come to Lima with visions of a beautiful life in the city and the promise of jobs and education – every man’s dreams.  When they get here they quickly realize that this is not the Lima they dreamed of.  Jobs are impossible to find and living in Lima City apartments is not an option for the poor.  They come to the human settlements above the city of Lima where there is a promise of land to those who homestead a lot for a specified period of time.  
According to a Reuters report 2015 Cross Street Peru 076there are about 160,000 people living in this area, but it’s hard to have an accurate estimate.  Houses do not have street numbers and streets do not have names.  There is just shack upon shack scattering and filling the hillsides as far up as you can look.  At night time the lights of Pachacutec shine like stars, but in the day the reality of poverty is blinding.  This is third world Peru. 
 
There are barrels of water at 2015-06-22 11.24.47many houses, basic 50 gallon garbage containers filled with water that has to be hiked up this deep sandy hill, 5 gallons at a time.  There are small wash tubs with dirty clothes that have to be washed with that water.  There are meals to be cooked, bodies to be washed and drinking glasses that will be filled with that same water. Sanitation is pit latrines.   Each family here lives by the prayer “Give us O Lord our daily bread”, because there are no refrigerators or freezers in these homes.  Jobs up here are just as hard to come by.  Thankfully there are feeding centers that will help the families get by. 
We continued our journey, 2015 Cross Street Peru 067down a steep hill then a two block walk from the bottom of the hill where the lot for Jenny and Percy’s house is.  They have 4 children: Wilson 2 months, Angel Gabriel 2,  Paolo 3,  and  Julio 7.   We hiked up the deep, loose, sandy hillside. It was the kind of sand that your shoes sink up to the ankles in.  Just climbing to the top of that hill left me breathless.  I had to sit for a good 20 minutes to recover from that hike! 
I looked out among the shacks that filled the hillside – homes for people living in such harsh conditions.  The winds blow cold and damp during these winter days.  Jenny came up the hill carrying the newborn, followed by the two toddlers.  I can’t imagine walking up that hill every day. Their only option is to walk up and down for whatever they need.  No buses or taxis will go this far up.  No matter what they need it will always have to be hiked up this hill. 
Our team worked tirelessly for 2015 Cross Street Peru 127two days putting together the prefab house and staining the outside.  The house has a rudimentary electric system that allows for lights in each small room. Hopefully they will have electric soon.  We borrowed some from a neighbor to make sure everything worked properly.  On the last day a small group of us went to the market and bought bunk beds and a table and chairs for the family.  It was dusk by the time the furniture was dropped off at the bottom of the hillside.  The whole group, along with the little boys  and Jenny came down to help carry mattresses, a bunk bed, a table and chairs up the hill.  The team assembled the bunk bed in the little room in the back.  The little boys were giddy with excitement as it came together.  We had not seen them smile like that during the past two days.
 
2015 Cross Street Peru 208
We gathered everyone together and said a prayer of dedication.  Jenny had tears streaming down her face and said, “Thank you for giving my children a better place to live.”  We took pictures.  Outside the window the lights of Pachacutec were shining like a million stars.

Randall Mission Update by Brian Weller

Please pray for Jim Randall as he goes to Nigeria – Africa for the month of August.  He has been ministering faithfully in Southeast Asia and will continue to do so, but God has opened this door to Nigeria.  Jim had a word many years ago that he would minister in Africa one day, and after many years that time has come for him to GO. While there, he will minister to thousands of leaders all over Nigeria.

nigeria-map

Would you please join us in prayer as we help to send Jim to Nigeria.  We truly believe it is God’s time for him to go.  He has so many valuable insights to share with leaders wherever he is.  Jim’s heart and the heart of Message Ministries are to help equip indigenous leaders to reach their nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Those of you that know Jim, know he is a leader of leaders and that he has so much to offer ministry leaders as well as anyone who is seeking to follow the Lord.
Please post this ministry schedule and pray for him daily.  Where possible, we have included the times and places where Jim is scheduled to minister.  Please pray for wisdom as he ministers and pray that the Holy Spirit would use him to encourage and exhort these men and women of God.  Also, please pray for health and for the finances needed to travel throughout Nigeria for a whole month.  Jim is trusting the Lord to meet the needs associated with this trip and we are trusting the Lord with him.
Jim wrote some booklets on leadership which he plans on printing before he goes to Nigeria.  If you would like to help with the cost of that, your support is welcome.  On his behalf, I want to thank you supporting Jim through your prayers and/or financial support.  Without you he could not do what God has called him to do and I know that God is doing wonderful things through his ministry.  We are all blessed to be a small part of that. 
Thank you and may God bless you,   Brian Weller

Peru-Youth-Camp-A-Life-Changing-Event

The camp will be in Chaclacayo, Peru, and will be life changing for all those who attend. For many of these youth, having the opportunity to leave their dreary hometown surroundings is an extreme blessing in itself. They will spend four days with youth from different parts of Lima. They will eat together, play together, worship together, pray together and read His Word together. Many will attend for the very first time and experience God’s love, presence and power like never before!

2014 Cross Street Peru 1277

 

Most of the Christian youth will leave this camp spiritually refreshed, rejuvenated, renewed and revived. They will go back to their homes ready to serve the Lord, their families, and their churches, and to reach all of Peru with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Still, others will leave the camp as new believers, new creatures in Christ, and new members of the family of God. They will leave knowing who Jesus Christ truly is, and will want to tell others. That is exciting to me, and is one of the many things that fuels the passion in my heart to continue doing the mission work that we do.

We need the help of our mission supporters to pray and to help pay the expenses associated with the camp. It costs $35 for a teen to attend this camp, and we will have about 150 Peruvian youth. That price covers everything, and is a small price to pay when you consider the lifelong fruit that will come forth from the camp. Please consider helping by sponsoring one or more youth! Thank you!

Southeast-Asia-Update

God has been good to open doors of opportunity for me to minister to many people multiple times in 11 different countries in SE Asia, during my time here. My assignment in SE Asia has been to train leaders so they can do the work of the ministry and reach those I will never meet till we all get to Heaven. I’ve been writing leadership training booklets that will be translated into five languages: Thai, Lao, Myanmar, Khmer (Cambodia), Vietnamese and Mandarin. The first one is being translated into Vietnamese this month.  

 

I plan to go to Nigeria for the month of August to work with the 2015-01-30 07.54.56Student Volunteer Movement II. I will speak at their annual convention in Laos and travel to do training for various groups. Going to Africa will fulfill the Word of God to me from 40 years ago. I hope to have some of my leadership booklets in English to present to leaders where I teach. I will give them permission to reprint in English and/or translate into regional languages for distribution in Africa.

Thanks for praying for me and helping financially so that I can be your representative to train those who will reach those who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus.

God bless you,   Jim

Please pray for the following:
1. Provision for the ministry, personal living expenses, travel and cost for translating and printing of the Leadership booklets.

2. Good health and safety.
3. Closer walk with the Lord and the ability to hear His voice and respond quickly.
4. Ability to write the remaining leadership booklets in a way that is understandable for Asians.
5. Ability to mentor the various leaders I meet and correspond with regularly here in Chiang Mai and SE Asia.
6. That God would go before me and prepare the way for the Nigeria trip.

PREFAB HOMES TO BE BUILT BY JUNE TEAM

in Peru. We can cover some of these funds with donations that have already come in, but we still need some help. The cost for a prefab home, complete with a concrete floor, windows, electric, and door locks, is $1,950. If there are any leftover funds, we’ll buy bunk beds, a table and chairs for the family. If you would like to help, we welcome your gifts.

Brian’s new book “Backsliding in Heart – 5 Steps to a Backsliding Heart and Back Again ” is now available on Amazon.    

 

Most Christians have backslidden in their hearts at times in their lives with Jesus. But how does that happen? Did the twelve disciples ever backslide? Most importantly, if we have backslidden in heart, how can we slide forward, and stay in a thriving relationship with the Lord? In this simple but engaging book, Brian walks us through the biblical story of the disciple Peter’s downfall and restoration to help us answer these questions and more. He clearly reveals five steps to a backsliding heart and back again.

 A PLACE OF HOPE

In Matthew 28:19 Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” Like you, we take these words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as our divine edict. After all, it is God’s Great Commission. It’s definitely not something we should take lightly or as a mere suggestion.

Jesus said in John 12:49 “I did not speak on My own initiative, but the John 4 - 34 My food is to do..Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.” He also said in John 4:34, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” God has called us not only to start His work, but to finish His work. I am sure that we would all agree there is still a lot to do!

As a small ministry, we are doing what we can to fulfill God’s call, but we always want to do more! Like you, we have a heart to reach those in spiritual darkness with the life saving message of Jesus, and to help them with material needs as well. With that in mind, we want to offer you an opportunity to get involved with a very special ministry in Laos!

THE LAOS ORPHANAGE/CHILDREN’S HOME:
We visited this home while in Laos, and have begun supporting this wonderful ministry. There are about 15 children in this home, as well as a Christian pastor, his wife and another Christian couple who serve as house parents. The material and educational needs of the children are being met, and they are being fed spiritually through the teaching of God’s Word. There is a church that meets in the home, where people are being discipled to Jesus.

For security reasons we are not posting pictures of the Laos Children's Home

For security reasons we are not posting pictures of the Laos Children’s Home.

We are not publishing the names of the leaders because Laos is one of the few remaining communist nations, and is a volatile area for Christians. When I visited this home, I was extremely impressed with the children and the leaders.

We want to do what we can to help! Some of these children have been rescued from human trafficking and this home is their place of rescue.

The cost is $800 a month to cover all of their expenses. Would you consider helping with this need?

100% of your donation will go to the home. If you are unable to help financially, please pray daily for this ministry. Opportunities like these are worth stepping out in faith to take and we invite you to join us in this step of faith!

Nepal Earthquake Relief

 NEPAL EARTHQUAKE

When disaster hits all of us want to do something to help!  Sometimes we don’t have much to give, but if we give what we can along with a host of other people who give what they can, it amounts to a lot, and a lot can be done!

 

We are collecting donations on behalf of Living Hope Ministries in North India. This is a ministry that we have worked with for seven years.  They are not far from Nepal and they work with other pastors and indigenous missionaries who live in that area. Sakshi, the wife of Subodh who leads Living Hope Ministries actually has family who live in the area where the earthquake hit.

 

We will send 100% of the donations we receive directly to them.  They will get help to the people in need and report back to us, what they are doing.  If you would like to help just hit the link below.  Thank you for your love and support!

0000 Peru-Mission-Update-VSL-Mission-Team

I just returned from an amazing trip to Lima, Peru where we were blessed to host a team from the Victory School of Leadership from Oklahoma. This team of young adults came ready to serve, share, pray, worship, preach, witness and do all the things that accompany those that have their hearts set on God and His Eternal Kingdom.  We saw many give their hearts to the Lord and many healed during the street meetings, the eyeglass clinic outreaches and the VBS ministries. Also, we built a prefab home for a needy mother and her four children!

2015 - Seis de Abril - PeruWe were blessed to be assisted by the Corazones en Fuego young adult team in Lima, Peru.  This team of Peruvian youth and young adults not only does missions in Peru throughout the year…they are there to assist when mission teams visit Peru. We generally send two teams a year: the Cross Street team and one other.  

As I approach the big 60 this year, I must say it is more than refreshing to work with youth and young adults who are focused on Jesus and their Heavenly Father, and are learning to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit.  There is so much to be done, and it is extremely important for the next generation to find their place in the Kingdom of God. It is equally important that we help provide opportunities for them to walk out their faith wherever they are. These kind of young adults believe in the Jesus of the Bible, that the Word of God is absolute truth, and that what Jesus taught, He truly meant.  How refreshing that is in these days, when so many seem to just take what they want from God’s Word and leave the rest as unimportant or unbelievable.
I truly am excited to see what God is going to do with young adults like the VSL Team, the Corazones en Fuego Team, and the Cross Street Team who are heading to Peru in June.
The team in front of the house built for Alejandrina and her 5 children in Pachacutec. Her husband left  the family, and they were living in a borrowed shack, which they had to vacate.  She works hard and is  blessed to have this new house  which is bigger than most that we build. It has four rooms!  The looks  on the families faces was a blessing to see as they walked through their new house, we prayed God’s  blessing over them, dedicated their house to the Lord, and handed them the keys! Gloria a Dios!

0000 Jim-Randall-Vietnam-Update

Some of you may have followed the updates on Jim Randall’s trip to Vietnam on our private Facebook Prayer page. If you didn’t, here is a brief update!  Jim and Scott arrived in Hai Phong, Vietnam prepared to do Bible School Training in a Vietnamese Church, but the church was not registered with the government.  As they were starting the first teaching sessions, the police came to investigate why they were there. It turns out that someone in the community had called to report seeing Americans at the church.   Jim and Scott had to leave town immediately, and went to Hanoi. While in Hanoi, they needed to do some tourist activities for a few days, as they were in the country on a tourist visa, and the police were watching them.

After a few days, they went on to Saigon and were able to conduct the Bible Training there without any problems. Jim is back in Chiangmai, Thailand and will be sending a full report in time for the next newsletter.

0000 Thank-You

Thank you for the outpouring of love and support this past month!  Because of your generosity we were able to:  

  1. Support the Orphanage in Thailand 
  2. Support the orphanage in Laos
  3. Support the orphanage in India.
  4. Support indigenous pastors in Southeast Asia and India.
  5. Support the ministry of The Kaushal’s in India
  6. Support the ministry of James Sann in Cambodia.
  7. Support the ministry of Jim Randall is Southeast Asia
  8. Support the eleven Feeding Center Ministries in Peru and more!  

 

It is all by God’s grace and because of caring hearts like yours that we are able to carry on God’s work and reach the world.  We want to say “thank you!”  God knows all that we are doing together and we know He is pleased that we are answering His call to reach the world with His message of truth, while helping the poor and the orphans.   We are committed to press on until the task is complete!

In Remembrance of Me Christian Website Banner
I am back in the USA and trying to process all God allowed Ron Bouvier and I to see. We met some amazing people on our mission to Southeast Asia with Jim Randall. We visited Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. Instead of writing a report of the trip, I decided to post something that I wrote on the trip, which best expresses what is on my heart right now.
 
Day #7 – Thailand 
Would you please pray for wisdom and provision? I have been praying and seeking the Lord for His direction in regards to what our response should be to the needs (spiritual and material) that we have seen in Southeast Asia. The smiles of the children at the children’s homes we’ve visited flash through my mind, bringing both smiles and tears. The lost and hopeless look on the faces of people on the streets are continually streaming through my mind. I feel an urging to tell them about Jesus.
 
We can’t just walk away and do nothing! We can’t leave here without doing all that we can to bring the light of the gospel to these darkened nations. They have so little of the light of the gospel of Jesus. To walk away and do nothing would be spiritual treason toward our Heavenly Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, and His’ Great Commission to reach the world that Jesus loves, and gave His life for.
 

Honestly, my brothers and sisters, my heart aches over all that I’m seeing, and a lot of what needs to be done seems impossible. Yet, I know that all things are possible to him who believes. Will you pray and believe with me? We aren’t just here to see! We know that with the seeing comes a divine edict to do something. By faith we can and will do it!

We all must go beyond just believing God to meet our own needs, and believing God to bring more comfort to our already comfortable “world”. We must stop spending so much time asking God for more blessings just for ourselves. We must open our eyes, look on the unharvested fields of the world, and see how bright white and ready they are for harvesting.

Let’s flee from the desire to build our own personal kingdoms, and let’s work with all our might for the Kingdom that will never end. God is counting on each and every one of us to do our part! If we will seek first the Kingdom of God, we will be seeking Gods will, and not only will we be able to accept the dismantling of our own personal Kingdoms, but we will embrace it for the sake of a Kingdom that is eternal. Then our focus will be to know God and to make Him known! The two are inseparable. Can I truly know God intimately, yet refuse to help proclaim His name boldly, especially to those who have never heard it? We do this by either going, sending others in our place or both.
Only 1% percent of the people here know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Approximately 85% have never heard the gospel. The indigenous leaders we have met here and in India are ready to go! Let’s help them! Let’s be their senders! Let’s all do something! To not do something is selfish and self centered. Isn’t it? I may be offending some by now, but I do it in the hope that others will be motivated and perhaps convicted by the Holy Spirit of God. He is the one who leads the army of God, as we reach into these bastions of darkness, where the devil has held the lost in chains for centuries, while we sit “In a land flooded with light”, as Falconer said.Are you a pastor or leader? Are you holding back the people you lead from fulfilling God’s great commission to reach the whole world? If so, it is time to repent. It’s not too late! God’s army is going forth! You can be used to lead God’s people out of spiritual slumber and into the great call to worldwide evangelism. Let go of the vision that sees no further than your own family, church family, country, continent or hemisphere.Some of you have read this far and I thank you for hearing what is on my heart. My goal is not to bring us into guilt and condemnation, but to help us to find freedom from the prisons we have built for ourselves. There is so much more that God wants to do in us and through us. My prayer is that we will all cry out to God with the words of Isaiah 6 “Here I am Lord, Send me”.

 

Let’s work together to fulfill the Great Commission of God, who loves the whole world, and wants them to know the truth that is only found in Jesus.

Your brother in the Family of God,

 
Brian Weller

Ways you can help with the
ongoing ministry in Southeast Asia:
  • First and foremost, pray, pray, and pray! That is always first and foremost and God always makes a way, when His people humbly and confidently pray for His help! Then be faithful to respond as God leads. He may just lead you to pray, or He may ask you to do something tangible as well.If you would like to help you can give towards one of the following needs:
  • #1 – We are arranging for the writing of gospel tracts by indigenous pastors and missionaries of countries we have visited. You can financially support the printing of these materials. They will be distributed to those that can read in these countries. Those who can read can tell others! These materials will be provided to indigenous ministries for free to give out in their countries. We are starting with Cambodia and Thailand.
  • #2 – You can support an indigenous pastor or missionary to Myanmar or Laos through the ministry led by David S. and FTS for $80 a month. They are going into unreached villages to reach and teach the people about Jesus Christ. They are planting churches in many villages.
  • #3 – You can help Jim Randall to pay for indigenous leaders to come to the Bible Training schools that he will be teaching with his missionary friend Scott. They do these throughout the year for a week at a time. It only costs $10 for an indigenous pastor/missionary to attend. Jim is preparing to do two in Vietnam in March. They need a total of $1,500 to cover the cost of 50 in Hanoi and 100 in Saigon. Message Ministries has already committed to help, but your designated gift would help greatly.
  • #4 – You can send support to the orphanage/children’s home in Laos that we are going to help. Running the orphanage costs $600 a month.
  • #5 – Help Cambodian James S. with transportation to the villages outside of Pnomh Penh, Cambodia, including the one we visited on our trip. Your financial support will also help him to get to the people in the slums around the garbage dumps of Pnomh Penh. He could get a lot more done with a motorcycle. Right now, he either travels on a bicycle or pays for public transportation. The cost for a motorcycle is $2,500.
To help with these needs, please visit the donate link on the right side of this page.  Thank you!
