2 New Motor Bikes:
Our base in Maryland County has now doubled its outreach ability. They went from 2 to 4 motor bikes. The fruit of the bikes can be seen in our increase of towns visited in September, 187, which is the most ever. We now have 13 motor bikes on the “road”. The cost for the two new bikes was $1,900.
4,200 and 350,000:
We have acquired 4,200 Bibles and enough paper to print 350,000 pages of Bible training material. The cost for the Bibles and paper was $1,850.
“How can Satan drive out Satan?”:
These are the words of Jesus in Mark 3:23. In one of the villages we work in there were many unusual deaths. The response of the village elders was to have the demons cast out. An Ivorian refugee claimed that he could do it…for the right price. So they paid him an outrageous sum of money and he came. He stripped himself completely naked and had the people parade behind him through the village. While in a trance he chanted and gyrated. He claimed the demons were gone, ate well and left. Oh, Liberia, I shake my head. We are working on establishing disciples and a church in the village. Our history proves that this method does drive out the demons. The price … outrageous! … But, Christ paid it for them! Amen.
The disciples return with joy:
One of our teams went to a village, Gbayouga, and were met the local devil, dressed in his costume, in action. No one was allowed outside. After he left the people came out and our team started teaching about repentance and that they must stop their traditional religious practices. One of the village elders, Gabriel Zoah, confessed that he was a part of a secret society that allowed no woman or an uninitiated male. He said that they sacrificed bush animals and humans. He repented and prayed for forgiveness. He then went into his home and brought out his talismans and ritual tools. They started a fire and burnt them. He swore to leave the ways of the past and to never return to them. Many rejoiced and have invited the team to return and teach them more about Jesus and His ways.
Giving up the Mask:
Another team went into a town preaching and teaching. Many came to listen. Afterwards one of the men said that his father had died and that he had inherited the mask. The mask is what they call the costume that the devil wears. He announced to those gathered that he renounced the mask and would never wear it again. He said to those who were there that were a part of the society that he did not care what they did to him that he was through with the mask and the society.
Wordsower Bible Institute:
Our school has been closed. The president has announced a State of Emergency. All schools have been closed throughout the country to help to stop the spread of Ebola. We do not know when the state of emergency will be lifted and schools allowed to reopen.
We need prayer that we get our supplies that are on transport trucks traveling from Monrovia to Zwedru. On my way to Zwedru from Monrovia trucks were littered along the road. Some were stuck, some broke down, some lying on their side, some skeletons of past failures. I know I passed over 50-70 trucks that fit one those descriptions. Pray our trucks will make it through and our supplies not damaged.
Pray for Liberia! Pray that this Ebola plague will bring many to repentance and salvation. Pray for a great revival to sweep through this country. Pray for a healthy church in every village in our generation, that every Liberian can walk small and find a healthy church. Please make this prayer part of your daily prayers.
