        “I minister at Glory Outreach Assembly Church in Nayanae Ang’ikalalio Village. I thank God for my life. Ever since I accepted Jesus, He has been my fortress, my ever-present help, and He has protected me. My family is doing well; wife and children are fantastic! We continue thanking God for bringing us this far.
        I thank God because when I was extremely ill, I thought perhaps that was the end of me, but He stood by me and healed me. Now I am back doing ministry. Today, I see people that I have taught the Word of God get to know the Word and share with others. The Church is growing strong – men, women, and youth. I minister in a church of about 70 believers. I thank God for protecting and blessing them.
        I use the Audio Bible to teach God’s Word. People HEAR His Word, then go out to share with others in my absence using the devices. I also use a DMM signage bookmark to teach about God’s story, how God wants to be a part of their story as well.
        Above all, I thank God because He has helped me.”

    Note to Sponsor:
    Dear Sponsor, I appreciate the support and care that you continue to show us.
