Greetings from the World Missions Center of BIMI. I trust that this letter finds you doing well and enjoying the blessings of the Gospel.
As the Good News is preached around the world by our missionaries, it is wonderful to hear about those who have responded to the message of salvation by accepting Christ as their Savior. I read an example of this in Dave Board’s recent prayer letter. Dave and Debbie Board have been serving faithfully in Cambodia for many years. Brother Board writes the following:
This past month we enjoyed a wonderful Celebration Service and witnessed 16 people follow the Lord in Believer’s Baptism. Two of them were 86 years old and were reached through the outreach in Preah Vihear Province. It is so sad to realize that this part of the world has scores of people who can live for more than 80 years without ever hearing a clear presentation of the Gospel. We are thankful that the Gospel reached them in time!
Again, it is a blessing to learn about those who have received the Gospel message. But what about all of those who have not even heard the story of Jesus Christ? Brother Board’s update reminded me of Carl F.H. Henry’s familiar quote, “The Gospel is only good news if it gets there in time.” I am thankful for those who are hearing the Gospel preached around the world, but there are still so many more people to be reached.
Thank you for your faithful support of those who are working hard to get the Gospel message to every creature before it is too late. Please continue to pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send forth more laborers into the fields that are white unto harvest. Your partnership in the Great Commission is appreciated more than you know. May the LORD richly bless you!
