Some months ago, we delivered 9,500 New Testament Bibles to areas not far
from our church. Some of these areas have predominantly Muslim families. We
prayed as we went, and although at that time it was bitterly cold, we did manage
to get all of the Bibles out in two weeks. One of the men was approached by a
rather large Muslim man who was holding two New Testaments in his hand.

The man explained that he had received two through his letterbox. Obviously,
a couple of the men overlapped and so a few houses were delivered to twice.

He then handed one back and kept the other for himself. A Chinese couple,
who recently moved to the UK from Hong Kong, came to us through receiving
a New Testament. Their English is not perfected yet, but we are beginning to communicate and
they listen intently to the sermons each Sunday. Help us pray for this couple that they will soon
come to a sound understanding of the Gospel.

Hi Dr. Ray:
Recently, I was given financial support from BIMI 100 Nations Ministry
for my medical missions trip to Kenya. I wanted to give an update on how
the trip went. BIMI missionary Becky Pope was also with us.

We worked with a local missionary and church to advertise the free medical
clinics that we would be holding. The number of people who showed up for
each day of clinic was shocking! There were doctors and nurses available as
well as a physical therapist (my dad), an occupational therapist, two dentists,
and an optometrist. In total, we saw 2,288 patients in just 4½ days of clinic.

While the medical care we provided was temporal, it opened huge doors to
getting the Gospel to many lost souls. God is still using the local believers there to win more people for Him.

I realized how good we truly have it in America. I know that sounds like the cliché thing to say after going on a missions trip, but my eyes
were truly opened to that. I realize how great my lack of gratitude has been.

God really showed me just how big He was. He is truly the God of the WHOLE world, not just of America. I cannot thank you all enough
for your financial and prayerful support. The trip was truly an experience of a lifetime and I think about Kenya and the relationships I
made there so often. My heart is aching to get back.

In Christ,
