This Friday evening at 7:30 P.M. (Mongolia Time) Emma was baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of her sins.
Emma was a member of the youth group in the church where Eric was a former minister. She has been attending worship with the church in Mongolia for two months. After studying the Word of God the past few days she realized that she was not baptized Scripturally and needed to be immersed for the forgiveness of sins.
To the Glory of God!
On Thursday evening at 8:04 P.M. (Mongolian time) Ziaya obeyed the Gospel for the forgiveness of her sins.
Zaiya is the wife of Eric who obeyed the Gospel on the last trip to Mongolia one year ago. She has attended worship with Eric and their two children during this time. At one point in our study she stopped me and said that her baptism in the other church she attended from before was not according to Scripture and was afraid that she was still in sin. Needless to say, after a little more study she was certain that she needed to be baptized for the forgiveness of sins.
To Go be the Glory!
God is great! Upon arriving in Mongolia and being met by the brethren they have been keeping me busy. From 9:00 A.M until 9:00 P.M we have been engaged in Bible study. One thing is for certain; they have many questions. We have studied topics such as whether it is required by Scripture for women to wear veils, spiritual gifts, evangelism, and what must I do to be saved?
Brethren, these two days have been a blur and I have not even had the opportunity to walk outside of the apartment. I absolutely love that God has counted me worthy to be a part of this tremendous ministry. What a blessing!
At this time I would like to ask you to remember Emma and Ziaya in your prayers. Both of these women are asking many questions and may respond to the Gospel. Ziaya is Eric’s wife (he was baptized last year and has been a tremendous addition to the Lord’s church in Mongolia). Emma was in Eric’s youth group in the church that he was formerly affiliated with.

I look for many blessings of souls harvested to the Lord. All of this is occurring and the rest of the evangelism team has not even arrived yet. God is so good!

To God Be The Glory!
Here I go again! It’s official, I am at Epply Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska waiting to head to Mongolia. This year will prove again to be a fruitful trip and the Gospel will be preached! In the coming days I will be joined by other evangelists, who will labor with me in this great work.
Please continue to pray for this work. That souls will be receptive to the Word of God and that the church meeting in Mongolia will continue to grow. Also, pray for our safety on this trip and that the Lord may care for our families in our absence. Lastly, pray for labors in the vineyard such as this that continually put forth the effort.
My plan is to keep everyone up to date through blogs and photos, so continue to check back to my website for updates.
May God Bless You
