NINE DAYS, SIX VILLAGES, ONE MISSION

Over nine days, from the end of January to the beginning of February, my dear brother Micah Tuttle and I, along with a team of eight Peruvians, journeyed into Peru’s jungle to build relationships, disciple, hold openair gospel meetings, and encourage believers. The following journal entries, written by Micah, are overviews of our days. Reading of eating jungle rats, of navigating jungle terrain far from the reaches of cell towers, and of preaching until our bodies want to collapse can muster up imagery that is disconnected from reality, but don’t miss the connection.

ANGOLA

Gather the people together . . . that they may hear and that they may learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully observe all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 31:12) The red sun of dawn stretched its golden arms over the eastern horizon of the centuries-old city of Luanda. Many inhabitants of that African city still slept, but one Portuguese couple had been awake all night. On that July day in 1971, shortly after sunrise, their middle child, a boy, was born.

CELEBRATING 10 YEARS IN THE FIELD

In August 2018, we completed 10 years of being in Nicaragua. It has not always been easy, and we have learned a great deal about spiritual warfare. But we have seen the hand of the Lord work in amazing ways. The hand that was in control at the beginning is still in control today. We serve an amazing God, and Deuteronomy 31:8 still rings true for us. Taken from CMML Missions Magazine

A TIME OF RENEWAL

Years ago, in an effort to encourage workers who labor for the Lord in tension-filled regions throughout Asia, the assembly missionary service organizations agreed to treat them to a retreat. The first such retreat was held in Hong Kong, and Sheldon and Nisa Crutchfield (MPH Day 7) were the key organizers. With this, they began what has become an event that is convened every four or five years. Taken from CMML Missions Magazine

PETER & MELANIE MEAD

Melanie’s testimony: I was blessed to be raised in a US-based missionary family and was privileged to hear the Gospel from a young age. Although I trusted Christ as my Savior when I was about five years old, it wasn’t until my teens that my faith became some- thing that was personal and real to me.

GOD PROVIDES A WAY

BY TIM & JOY BEER : Throughout Scripture, we are reminded of God’s concern for the poor, the helpless, and the widowed. We are told not to afflict them because the Lord administers justice to them and is their defender. The Bible warns against those who prey on widows and also clearly instructs the church to look after those in need. In the developing parts of the world, the church of God is constantly faced with the needs of such people, and their sad plights move Christians. Many years ago, a previous missionary, Mr. Charles Geddis, started a village here at Loloma for elderly people who had [...]
