Dear Dr. Ray,
We have distributed thousands of New
Testaments in recent days. As in the ministry
of the Apostle Paul, some rejected our Bibles
and hated us, some are undecided, and some
received the Word of God with joy. A man
named Peter phoned me and asked to buy
another New Testament for his friend. I told
Peter the Bibles were free and took one to his
house. Please pray for Peter. A woman named
Ann received one of our Bibles and visited
our church this past Sunday. This woman is
a sister in Christ who has been out of church
for a while. Her husband is extremely ill and
both of them need prayer.

Dear Brother Ray:
Please let me convey my gratitude for the
New Testament Bibles that recently arrived.
On behalf of Trinity Baptist Church in
Market Harborough, England, we want to
thank BIMI for an incredible investment that
can assist our ministry for the people of this
town and beyond. The New Testaments look
great and I will look forward to informing
you how they are received.

Market Harborough, England
Dear Dr. Ray:
Just to let you know, I received a call from
the shipping company today that the crates
have arrived in port in London. It looks like
they will be delivered to us on Thursday or
Friday. We are looking forward to beginning
distribution of these New Testaments in the
next few weeks. It is a good time to do door-

Missionary Dear Brother Ray:
I thought I would let you know that all the New
Testaments have been delivered in Colwyn
Bay, North Wales. We are approximately
1,500 short, but we have delivered 8,000. The
people of the church have been wonderful in
rising to the cause of Christ.
— Leonard James, Colwyn Bay, Wales
14 Dear Brother Ray,
We have also had people come to our
Coffee Mornings because of the New
Testaments. We inserted an extra note and
a listing of our Coffee Mornings. We have
met other Christians and they have been
an encouragement. One family rang the
pastor and told him that they were using
it for their family devotions. There have
been other blessings each time we go out.
The cover is so attractive that people have
taken them because of that. Another great
thing is that people now know where we are
from the photos on the cover. I sometimes
wonder why we did not do this earlier,
perhaps because we would not have had the
means! Thank you for taking the burden of
the cost from us. We are thrilled to be able
to get the Word of God into the homes of

Hi Brother Ray,
Just a note to let you know that I was told
that I could go onto the campus at Waterford
Institute of Technology tomorrow and meet
someone from the Christian Union there
and hand out New Testaments. Just wanted
to let you know so that you can be praying
that they will impact some students. There
are kids from all over Ireland and some
international ones as well.
— Don Thatcher,
BIMI Missionary to Ireland
Dear Brother Ray and the 100 Nations
Ministry: I want to thank you so much for your
kindness in providing financial support for
my missions trip to Kenya. The Lord has
put the country of Kenya on my heart from
a young age. I am praying that the Lord
opens my eyes and heart to missions in a
new way. Thank you.

My prayers are with you daily.

How exciting to hear of all the New

Jesus. — Eleanora Hitchman, Butler, Ohio
Dear Brother Ray:
Thank you so much for the copies of the
NATIONS MAGAZINE that you sent us.
We enjoy reading them so much and they

our Sunday school children as well. May
the Lord bless you.
