2. Prayer Letter July 2004

"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." 1Pt:5:7

God will take care of us as we pass by an area few times a day and then an explosion takes place there and we are safe, not because we did not pass by at the exact time of danger but because God is the one who takes care of us. The Devil tempted the Lord Jesus. "And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone." Mt:4:6 God will take care of us if we are walking in the ways of the Lord. "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." Ps:91:11

Dear Praying partners:

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”  Ps. 122:6

I came to Jerusalem as a missionary on the 16th of February in 1962 that is to say 42 years ago. We have been praying for the peace of Jerusalem for forty two years. We preached visited and witnessed to thousands of people and hundreds have accepted Christ as their personal savior.  We baptized over one hundred and twenty out of these more then ten are serving the Lord now. Last month two of the preachers came and visited us. Dr. Anton is serving in California while the other preacher is working in Europe. 

I am happy to know that they did not give in to the liberal movements and to the groups that are accepting new revelations from God and are adding their imaginations to the word of God. We trained all our preachers to stick to the word of God and to discard all new visions and new speaking in tongues and to stick only to what have been declared and recorded in the Bible that is the word of God.

With the advancement of technology I have a vision of being able to start Bible College on the web to reach people who are not able to go Bible Colleges. One person can not do this great work alone. This project needs a team work. I already bought a domain in the name of  http://www.jerusalembbc.com  that is "Jerusalem Baptist Bible College" and started to program it. Now I am praying to God, to touch the hearts of some preachers; that have been preaching for more then 20 years or have finished their master degree or doctorate in theology or bible; to be responsible for one course at least.      

The preacher responsible for the course will choose the text and will record twenty lectures on the subject and will prepare questions for every lecture and two or three exams which will be send to the pastor of the student studying. The student must make the exam in the presence of one of the pastors of the church. Two third's  of the tuition of the course will go to the preacher responsible for that course.

We thank the Lord for the increase in the attendance, and we are praying that the Lord will give us 20% more in attendance this year over last year.

Yours in Christ

2. Prayer Letter July 2004

Dear Praying partners:

 Summer is here and we are preparing for the VBS which will start 19 of July pray with us, for the summer activities  and for the peace in this country. The people in this country needs the gospel badly. Keep praying for us to be able to spread the gospel. The freedom doors to preach the gospel are closing. The freedom we once enjoyed in putting a clear message in the papers is no more. Now we have to be careful what to advertise. We still have the freedom to put what we like on the internet. So now we have most of the writings of the Correspondence Bible School in Arabic on the web.

 The idea of starting an International Baptist Bible College on the web came to me 7 months ago. This Bible College will have to involve between 20-40 pastors. Each pastor will be responsible for one or two courses maximum. He will choose the textbook and put between 10-20 lectures depending on the need of the course he is teaching. He will put questions to the course and he will correct and grade his students taking his course. The final exam must be answered by the student  in the presence of  his pastor or a person his pastor will recommend.

 We need many persons to start praying for this Bible College, because this is not my college nor your college but it is our college. If you like to be a part of this college please first pray about it until you have peace that this is the will of the Lord for you to have a part in it. Write us so that we will start praying about it also and tell us what course the Lord have put on your heart.

 The final authority for our preaching and teaching is the Bible the verbal inspired word of God. Visions, dreams and speaking in tongues can not be added to the Bible and we can not accept it  as God speaking to us. 

 Yours in Christ
