Taking the Gospel into remote regions has never been more effective. The idea of taking the story of Jesus into remote regions where most have never had the opportunity to hear the "Good News" of salvation is being facilitated by GAP Missions via motorcycles and SOLAR POWERED projection systems. The entire projection unit can be carried in a backpack. Showing the JESUS FILM in native languages has yielded unimaginable responses.
"Prayer" by E.M. Bounds
God's true preachers have been distinguished by one great feature: they were men of prayer. Differing often in many things, they have always had a common center. They may have started from different points, and traveled by different roads, but they converged to one point: they were one in prayer. God to there was the center of attraction, and prayer was the path that led to God. These men prayed not occasionally, not a little at regular or at odd times; but they so prayed that their prayers entered into and shaped their characters; they so prayed as to affect their own lives and the lives of others; they so prayed as to make the history of the Church and influence the current of the times. They spent much time in prayer, not because they marked the shadow on the dial or the hands on the clock, but because it was to them so momentous and engaging a business that they could scarcely give over.
Opportunities.. beyond imagination to share the love of Jesus. Most people I meet in Ivory Coast do not know the truth and value of John 3:16. My goal this trip is to help the orphans, displaced Christians, and to encourage our mission pastors and workers in this trying situation. I also want to make progress on constructing the Orphanage, Bible Institute, and Church structures. We look forward to having this Missions Center up and running, but, in my course of "to do's" for construction, I meet people all along the way who need to hear the GOSPEL story. We can't forget those who cross our path every day. It just might be a "Divine Appointment" to share the Good News. They may never hear it from anyone else and we may not "pass their way" again.
