Barnabas1040 Enters Into Pakistan!
I am writing this update just a few hours before boarding a flight back to China. The Lord has blessed our brief 2 months in the States with souls saved here and abroad. Gayle and I were in several Mission’s Conferences on the West Coast and as a result we saw people saved in Washington, Oregon and California. We were in 12 churches where I was privileged to preach a total of 40 different times. We praise God for the opportunity to advance the cause of Christ through these good churches, but we are excited about getting back home to China and the full schedule that awaits us there.
While we were here in the States, the work of Barnabas1040 continued of course through our national pastors in 10 Asian countries. We received reports of souls saved and baptized throughout Asia. Hardly a day goes by that I do not hear from one or more of our national missionaries and pastors. My heart rejoices to know that by God’s grace we are invading Satan’s strongholds in the 10/40 Window and tearing down the gates of hell. Together we are making a difference in some of the darkest parts of the world.
The Lord has just opened the door for us to step into one of the neediest areas we have entered thus far. We have committed $1,000.00 a month to church planting in Pakistan. Pakistan is 96.4% Muslim but there is an Independent Baptist Church and Bible College training and sending out Pakistani preachers to plant churches in that dangerous and needy country. I have been in contact for several months with them but have just recently been able to speak with an American Pastor friend who personally made a trip into Pakistan. This dear brother put his life on the line to walk with our Pakistani brethren in preaching the gospel in this part of the world. With the research I had already done and the confirmation of Pastor Ray Cunningham, I felt liberty from the Holy Spirit to proceed into Pakistan. This will make the 11th country the Lord is allowing us to impact for Christ!
God is doing some amazing things through the ministry of Barnabas1040, but I am constantly aware of the fact that none of it would be possible without His grace and your partnership. Gayle and I are very thankful for each of you that keep us in your prayers and giving. Together we are making a difference in jungle villages and large cities all across Asia. I truly stand amazed at what God has done in just the first few years of this ministry. Only eternity will reveal the impact that we have been able to make together. Thank you for praying and thank you for giving.
God Bless you,
Dwight and Gayle Tomlinson
