Bob Bowen Prayer Letter:  The Need for Bibles!“I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.” (Psalm 116:17) Back in the States, I am once again traveling to help make churches aware of the need for Bibles all over Southeast Asia. BEAMS has received nearly $17,000 from many of our friends and supporting churches to help with the India Bible Project and for Thai and Burmese Bibles. A young man, Jonathan Flowers, walked up to me during the missions conference at First Baptist Church and handed me a handful of $1 bills. He said, “I want to buy a Bible for some boy in Thailand.” AMEN!

To help raise needed funds for Bibles in Thailand, Burma, Northeast India, and other regions of Southeast Asia, I am in need of scheduling meetings for the next few months. I would appreciate the opportunity to present our ministry and to exhort churches in the matter of giving to this great need for the Word of God. What would you do without a Bible? Most of the world does not have a copy of God’s Word!

I attended the Revival Fires National Conference at First Baptist Church in Bourbonnais, Illinois, hosted by Pastor Terry Anglea. I had the privilege to meet many men of God and was given the opportunity to present the need for Bibles.

I was asked to fill the pulpit for Pastor Mark Foster in Holly Ridge, North Carolina, on Easter Sunday. This young man of God spends two weeks a year in the Philippines preaching and teaching at Youth Camps and churches. The best way for a man of God to keep his heart tender for missions is to go to the mission field and see it himself.

The Teaching All Nations material will be ready soon, and I will then travel to Southeast Asia to introduce this wonderful, new program to nationals.

My wife traveled back twice to Quincy, Illinois, to visit her mother this month. Thank you so much for your prayers. Her mother is doing much better.

Please keep me in your prayers that I might be able to schedule more meetings. If I can be of service to you in any way, please let me know.

We thank God for your faithfulness to continue to meet the needs of this missionary and to allow us to continue the work God has called us to do.

Into all the world,

Bob Bowen
