Alive and Powerful

"For the word of God is alive and powerful."
Hebrews 4:12 (NLT)

In March 2010, the Kimyal people of West Papua, Indonesia (which is located on the same island as Papau New Guinea) received the New Testament in their own language after more than 25 years of translation work. An incredibly powerful video was made documenting the day the Kimyals finally received the completed New Testament, which was delivered by an airplane landing on a grass landing strip. Watch the video below to see for yourself just how alive and powerful the Word of God is. Our vision is to one day participate in a celebration just like this one as one of the nearly 300 Bibleless people groups in Papua New Guinea receives the Word of God in their own language for the very first time in history.

March Madness
Our schedule for the month of March was about as full as the NCAA college basketball tournament schedule. We were blessed to receive tremendous favor at nine Light for the Lost banquets that we attended in the span of eleven days. After Light for the Lost, we had the opportunity to share for a seven-minute window at Victorville First Assembly, a full service at the South Coast Assembly missions banquet, a special event for elementary girls in La Palma, a local ministers meeting, and an appointment at Shepherd of the Hills church in Porter Ranch. We also managed to squeeze in a trip to the zoo just for fun.

Prayer Requests

the zoo in March.
Please pray that we would receive favor as we make connections at the Southern California Assemblies of God District Council. Please also join with us in thanking God for his faithful provision.
