One pastor recently visited a village in a region governed strongly by military soldiers. He shared the Gospel extensively and distributed MP3 players loaded with the Gospel stories. Twenty people chose to follow Jesus as a result of his ministry. The military officials expelled him and told him never to return. Still, the pastor remains convinced that God wants him to return with Bibles for the new Believers and more MP3 players for them to share with others. Pray for his safety and for the new Believers to grow strong in the Lord and the Word of God. As they celebrate Christmas for the first time, may the Holy Spirit fill them with joy and wonder (The Bible, Acts 2:4).
