Update: S. & H. (Central Asia)

April 7, 2010

As of April 7, 2010 . . .

Most of you have probably heard by now about the unrest that has erupted here in [our nation]. We wanted to write a short email to let you know that we are fine here in our city. Most of the protests are taking place in the North, while here in the South things have been relatively quiet.  But the rumor mill is in high gear, so we do not know what the next few days will hold. Pray for His Peace to come over this land, and for the protests not to escalate.

Another prayer request is to lift up the training school that will be starting tomorrow (Thursday). This school will be unique in that the students will learn both business skills and cp (chrch planting) skills at the same time as well apprentice in a local Kingdom business here in town. We honestly believe that this training school will raise up the future Apostle Pauls of Central Asia! We have 4 families and 2 single men attending – with most of them from a neighboring country where the chrch is under some intense persecution. We expect God to do some wonderful things in their lives over the 3-6 months that they will be here in [our city].

Orientation will take place these next few days and then classes will start next week. And as was already mentioned, they will do apprenticeships in the various BAM [Business As Missions] businesses in our city. We expect a good number of them to be in the poultry business. Pray for God to lead each student to the right businesses that they can use to build His Kingdom wherever He may lead them.

Despite what is happening in the North, we continue to press on to see His Kingdom Come and His Will to be done here in Central Asia.

I also want to bring up a need for some funds to help with these students. They will be receiving a part-time salary as they work in their apprenticeships, but this will not be enough to cover their costs.  If He is leading you to help with the training of these students, please send an email to me at [email omitted; please see Catherine / Robert for the contact information].  And for those from the US, we can provide a tax-deductible receipt for any funds that help with the training school.

Thank you so much for your prayers.
