Graduated!

Who says your ever too old to go back to school again? Not I! As new staff, Summur and I, as well as staff members, Michael Frye and Stephanie Kountz, participat- ed in new staff classes. The clas- ses are basically to help prepare us for ministry, instructing us how to stay, and even thrive, in

the battle.

Well, we recently graduated, (pictured to the right). Class of 2011 rules! While I won’t miss the homework, I will miss my classmates who were the best. I am already looking forward to the reunion

The class of 2011! Biology lab was the best!

News From the Field

Banko is a Gospel for Asia-supported missionary serving the Lord in South Asia. But he doesn't have just one place of ministry. He is a film team missionary, taking the movie about the life of Christ to villages where few people, if any, know Jesus.

One village that Banko visited had no Chris an witnesses. With the help of a GFA- supported pastor who worked nearby, Banko planned a film show for this village. The two missionaries walked throughout the village, handing out tracts and invi ng the villagers to the film show that night. The Lord blessed their efforts, and more than 200 people came to watch this powerful film.

Among the audience was young Ahkila, who had suffered from a long illness. She had tried many medicines with no results. But as Ahkila and her parents saw Jesus perform miracles during the movie, faith sprouted in their hearts. When the film ended, they asked Banko to pray for Ahkila.

The missionary was glad to pray for the girl's illness. But as he prayed, it became apparent that her ailment was spiritual. She showed signs of demon possession. Thankfully, Banko knew of the one and only cure, and as he prayed, the Lord deliv- ered Ahkila.

The girl and her whole family were awestruck as they saw God's power. Each family member chose to believe in Christ a er witnessing the miracle, and now they make up the first small group of believers in their village.

It was so

nice to go home and see everyone. We were blessed by visiting Calvary Lutheran on Palm Sunday and Calvary Chapel Modesto, our home church, on Easter Sunday. We miss our church, but have found a TX church that we feel called to at- tend, The Reedemer Covenant. Also I will be helping in the 2 and 3 year old classroom, which will be so nice because both girls will be in there, until August, when Sinclair turns

I haven't been in the office much at all lately. We just got

back from a vacation back home and the kids were sick be- fore and after. In this time of spir- itual battle I questioned going into the office anymore, but my co- workers and boss prayed with me and really encouraged me to not be

discouraged.

The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. Psalm 18;2

Praise God for encouraging brothers and sis-

Love you all & thanks for praying!

ters in Him!

Peace in Jesus,

Summur
