I’m in Arizona, where the fall conferences are coming to an end. You prayed, and God blessed with safe travels despite an early October Colorado snowstorm with slick roads and crosswinds.
You prayed for the trip to Malawi, Africa, and God blessed remarkably. Thank you! Over 250 people attended the sessions and services, and 184 of these were pastors. Specifically, God granted:
• Divine direction for final conference planning and the teaching. God gave great ideas, and we worked in perfect harmony, even though it was our first time teaching together. I taught the principles, and Bro. Ogle taught practical and effective methods to help the students learn.
• A wonderful spirit of unity and cooperation between the Chichewa-speaking (from Malawi) and Portuguese-speaking (from Mozambique) pastors, the two of us who taught, and the translators.
• Spiritual growth for everyone, as all better appreciated the Holy Spirit’s role as teacher in the course of prayerful Bible study in the Teaching All Nations (TAN) format.
• Souls saved when we preached in services the Sundays before and afterward. Here’s a photo of the village church where I spoke the first Sunday and 12 were saved. I was also blessed to lead 5 to the Lord the second Sunday with the help of a translator.
You also prayed for the trip to Namibia in Southwestern Africa, and God blessed with a wonderful visit with the Dinius family. They’re doing a great job planting a church in that corner of the world despite adversity. Here they are on the site where they’re making progress on the foundation work for their church building.
Please pray for my upcoming trips to Ghana this November (to help missionaries grow in their ability to disciple believers and plant new churches) and the following one to El Salvador in December (for their Fuegos de Evangelismo soul-winning conference).
That all might hear, everywhere,
Dan and Lana Siemer
