Forward By Faith
As we begin the month of May, I am excited to report that we have taken a step of faith and added 18 new church planters to our Barnabas1040 family. This is the largest single month addition that we have done since beginning the ministry in 2015.
We added 10 new families in Vietnam, 5 in Bangladesh, and 3 in Africa. All 18 of these families are working in difficult areas where there are few laborers. They are working in areas dominated by Communism, Buddhism, Islamic, or other false religious philosophies.
These faithful servants are in large cities and small villages in some of the most gospel resistant parts of the world. Many of the people we help have been jailed and treated horribly for preaching the gospel, yet they continue to stand faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ.
They are not doing it for the money they receive from our ministry. They are motivated by the love of Christ and their total dedication to their Savior and Lord. God is blessing their labor and hundreds of people are being saved each week. Please pray for their safety and for many people to come to Christ through their efforts.
If any of my Pastor friends would like to sponsor one or more of these 18 families, please let me know. These men have all been vetted and I believe they would be a wise investment of your churches mission funds.
During the month of April Gayle and I were in Florida and Michigan where I had the opportunity to preach and present our ministry. The month of May we plan to be in Florida and I have some open dates if any Florida Pastors would like to have me in to present the ministry.
June through August we will be on the West Coast. I am booked solid with meetings in California and Washington State, but I do have one Sunday open while we are in the Seattle area. Sunday, June 13th is the only Sunday we have open this summer. If a church in the Seattle area would like that date please let me know.
In closing, I want to say thank you to all of our ministry partners who support Barnabas1040 through prayer or finances. We could not do what we do without you.
Together we are helping almost 100 church planters in 19 countries to shine the light of the gospel.
I am truly humbled to stand with these men and women. Thank you for standing with them as well.
God bless you,
Dwight & Gayle Tomlinson
