Praise Report from the Bolingers in Japan

Hi everyone, Thank you all for your prayers and support of our recent problem. Our car’s transmission breaking just moved it into the lemon category and we got rid of it junking it. Now we are in a new renaissance of sorts walking. Back in 2008, when we moved here we were without a car and walked and rode bikes. Healthier for sure. Now walking is encouraged by my doc but not so much biking. I even applied to a health and fitness program in our city. They sent me to the doctor who said NO flexing muscles or exerting strain. There went that idea of loosing weight. But anyway, we were contacted by a brother in the Lord who has pledged us a car that is currently being used by someone else on another island. Now to figure out how to get it here? They say that it isn’t too expensive but we’ll see. That is a lot of distance from way down South. As far as the bread ministry we have family and neighbors who have volunteered to help us. We went to the mall the other night on the bus. It was actually relaxing.

Again thank you for your prayers, Keep praying we will get the car soon and that acquiring it will be inexpensive. God bless you all.

Prayer Needed for the Ropers in Hamburg, Germany

Greetings to you all in the name of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!

It has been a while since we have last written and sent some prayer requests and for this we have definitely learned our lesson. We humbly come to you and ask that you would take the time to read this prayer email and then to spend time praying after you have finished reading. In Ephesians 6, towards the end of the chapter, the apostle Paul asks that the Ephesian church would pray for him. Through this email want want to join in that same attitude and ask that you would please be praying for us. These past few days we have definitely been facing some spiritual warfare. We know that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual hosts of wickedness. And we know that although we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. We know that we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. We know that greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world and we know that our enemy is directly opposed to all that we seek to do here in Hamburg, Germany. I could go on and on. But another thing that we know… we are not alone in this battle and we are asking you to engage in prayer on behalf of us as a family and the work that the LORD wants to do. I am not going to go into the details, but I will share this with you…

We are less than one month away from having our first prayer tour/outreach with a team of bible college students from Vajta, Hungary. We are working hard and preparing for them to come. We are excited to see what the LORD will do through this 10 day prayer tour/outreach. No doubt we are experiencing some warfare due to this. I cannot completely put my finger on all of it, but we know that it is important that we ask for some back up prayer.

We thank you!

Love in Christ,

The Roper Family

Steve and Kathy’s Update

Here is the latest update from Steve and Kathy Bailey:

Hope all is well everyone at church.

We are both feeling well. It is amazing how the Lord has kept us so healthy since we left California.

We have two more teachings this week, on Wed. and Thurs. Please pray for those messages, for the Lord to direct them, and for those who are not saved to come to Jesus.

Tomorrow, we have a one day road trip to Siem Reap. It is treacherous driving here. Hard to explain how the roads work (or don’t work). No lanes, no lights, no rules. We saw a young women killed on our major road in a moto accident last week. Please pray for a safe round trip.

We are celebrating Easter at CC Poipet for its first Good Friday service, with communion and a special message followed by a Koinonia, and then again on Resurrection Sunday. Please pray for lots of folks to attend both days. Also, on Friday morning, at Cambodian Hope Organization morning devotions, we will have communion and gospel message for the staff. Please pray that it goes well. It will be the first time they have had communion during the morning devotions.

On Saturday, March 30, we have the day off, first day off in a long time. We have no plans right now except to rest, although we did hear about an outreach in a village.

We will spend more time with Mercy Ministries orphanage next week, and we are working with the leadership of Cambodian Hope Organization on organizational matters.

We leave Cambodia for Bangkok (crazy drive again) on 4/4 and then fly to Hanoi on 4/5, for 3 weeks in Vietnam. We will be watched closely in Vietnam and may not be able to post openly about the Lord. Please pray for our protection (personal and stuff) as we change countries and travel from the North of Vietnam to the South over the 3 week period from 4/5 to 4/22. On 4/22, we will fly to Paris.

We do not have lots of appointments in Vietnam. We hope to meet with Christians in Hanoi and Danang, and we will be meeting with ministry friends in Saigon. Please pray for divine appointments in Vietnam.

Thanks for praying and for being there so we can be here.

Update from Steve and Kathy Bailey in Southeast Asia:

We just returned yesterday from the remote villages of northern Cambodia where we met up with two missionary teams who work with the Kringle tribes in the hills along Vietnam and Cambodia. These are very primitive tribes and one is working the language and translating the Bible. It was a wonderful open door to minister and be ministered to. As you know, there are many great works going on in the name of our Lord. It is refreshing to see and in some small way, partner with.

Listen, Lord bless you and Carol and the Family. Have a blessed weekend. Kathy and I, along with Jeff and Rose are driving today back to Poipet, Cambodia. (About 9 hours). Jeff has services tomorrow. On Monday Kathy teaches the Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit to the Ladies there and on Wednesday and Thursday Jeff and I teach a Biblical Leadership class. Please keep those opportunities in prayer for is if you will.

Yours in Christ,

Steve
