MTA now has its first full-time volunteer. I have left my job
and go into ministry full-time. (I'm Steve.) I made the move at
the end of August. September was filled with travel so I just
getting started at the beginning of October. I made this move
because of the overwhelming need our ministry has. The call on
my time became so great that I had to either stop the MTA ministry
or stop working my regular job.
already has been a noticeable improvement. For example:
The Russian translation of the Diablo Mountain video has been
completed. I thought it was completed last month, but we continued
to find small things that needed correction. This video looks
at the major world religions and shows why the God of the Bible
is the one and only true God. In October we will be shipping copies
of the DVD to all of our Russian contacts.
Plus I have made huge progress on the first video in our evangelism
training series. It is called "How To Share Your Testimony
For Evangelism." This one has been in our backlog for a long
time and I now hope to finish it by the end of November.
By the way, this past week I needed to purchase more blank DVDs.
That means over 1,400 copies of our DVDs have gone out so far
In addition to DVDs I am now working on several books to help
with our seminars. Plus there is news just in on the "What
Do Baptists Believe book we put our earlier this year. The Indonesian
translation has been completed.
By the way, if you'd like to stay up-to-date on our ministry,
please subscribe to our email newsletter. I'm planning to change
from bi-monthly to monthly publication as soon as possible.
See our 2011 Evangelism
We had an evangelism event nearly every weekend this summer.
So what's coming in the future?
I have considerable work to do on projects that have been started
but not finished. There is more than I thought. I'm guessing that
a realistic estimate is that will take until the end of the year
to clear up the back-log.
Ask the Lord for His guidance and wisdom for me (Steve) as I
continue to get our full-time ministry up to speed. Ask the Lord
to send us new opportunities to share the gospel, and that He
will give us boldness, love and a humble attitude.
Please thank the Lord for all of the people He has sent our way
to use their gifts to support our ministry. We have received a
number of donations, and offers of materials we can borrow, to
support our evangelism ministry. These include a professional
quality booth we can use for the indoor events this fall and winter.
Pray for God's guidance for me as I prepare to speak at a men's
retreat this month.
Please pray for our ministry partners in Russia and our ability
to continue to provide financial support.
THANK YOU GOD!
And thank you for your prayers!
