God has clearly opened the door for MTM to conduct a pastors leadership conference in an exclusively Muslim country where Americans, on the most part, are not at all appreciated. Please be in much prayer as Marvin Troyer (Goshen IN) and myself travel to P_____n this weekend and conduct a native leadership conference September 19-23. Our native coordinator is projecting we will have 100+ native pastors and church leaders. The opportunity that we have as conservative Anabaptist in Islamic countries is overwhelming. The evangelical Christians have totally misrepresented Christianity and Muslims associate Christianity with Hollywood. But our faith and practice as conservative Anabaptists is very intriguing to Muslims. Please pray that Marvin & I could accurately portray Christianity, not only to the Muslim’s, but also to the native Christians who have been influenced by the evangelicals of the west. We desire to accurately portray Christianity as Jesus lived and taught it. Please also pray for our wives as they stay here in Chiang Mai.
WE DO NOT GO BECAUSE IT IS SAFE … RATHER WE GO FOR GOD HAS PROMISED HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US NOR FORSAKE US.
