August 2017 Update

ISOT-arabicI was greatly blessed this past month to see a copy of In Search of Timothy in the Arabic language. I can’t begin to put into words the gratitude that rises up in my heart as I think about this material getting into the hands of Arabic speaking believers. When this book was released in English in 2005, I had no idea that it would also eventually be published in Arabic, Russian, German, Greek, Portuguese, and Spanish. The assignment God gave us when we launched TCM in 2002 was to “strengthen churches and leaders,” and all that we do is targeted accordingly!

If you already support TCM, thank you! If not, please consider making a special gift this month to help us with our operation and outreaches. One project we are undertaking is to raise the necessary funds to help Gary Crowl Ministries translate Grace: the DNA of God into Mandarin Chinese. Every month, this website, is updated with fresh resources to encourage thousands of leaders and believers around the world. Your financial support also helps us with our operational and other outreach expenses as well. The Apostle John gave an admonition regarding traveling ministers. He states, “So we ourselves should support them so that we can be their partners as they teach the truth” (3 John 8, NLT).

I also want to thank you for your prayers! I understand why Paul said, “We ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes.” (2 Thes 3:1, NLT). We so desire to be effective and to help churches and leaders! You might specifically pray that we will have wisdom in our scheduling of overseas ministry. We want to be in the right place at the right time! In the last half of this year, I will be making two ministry trips to Brazil, and a trip to Russia and Malta also. We are also very excited about next year, 2018. We already have trips planned to Germany, Switzerland, Cyprus, Italy, France, England, Austria, and Colombia. We anticipate preaching in other nations as well.
