WORLD MISSION TEAM brings their reports from:
KENYA,  Africa


JUNE 18 2013 Having just gotten back on US soil... on their way home, Mike Russell called in with a brief summary of their evangelism... over 30,000 people got saved during their trip! Thank you for praying.   

Mike's brief summary... over 30,000 people got saved!!

June 10, 2013:  4,288 salvations.... on the 1st Day! They people are getting connected with local churches and the Gideons will follow up and provide them all with Bibles. Please pray for our missionary team including Mike & Jan Russell, Susie Christy, Tommy Chaffin and others.


Day 2 --- As of June 12 2013, now more than 11,000 people have received salvation in the Good news of Jesus Christ as preached by the teams.



The World Mission Team led a large group of people on a Spring Break mission trip to The Great Passion Play, which is all about lifting up the name of Jesus and telling his message of love and salvation.

The group worked hard... picking up leaves and branches and sweeping out the outdoor set that was filled with huge piles leaves .... and the New Holy Land trail had to be cleared again for the vehicles to bring people to each new place on the exciting tour.  Some folks painted, some provided equipment, others hauled... whatever was needed, they did! 

In 1 week, the grounds looked improved, neater and functioning!  This work also encouraged the cast members and workers at the place to feel encouraged that this new birth was really happening.

Thanks to all who participated.

Ben and Peggy Bell in Malawi, Africa

Ben and Peggy Bell are leaders in our World Mission Team, "Operation Global Impact",  under the direction of Mike and Jan Russell.  

Peggy Bell and her sisters make dresses from pillowcases for the orphans in Malawi, Africa.  Perhaps you and your church or family can make some "pillowcase dresses".  Look online for simple patterns, and have a dress making party.

They are simple, but will make a HUGE difference in the lives of one of these beautiful little girls!

A pillow case dress will make her feel like she is important. 

What is even more... a girl must have "a dress" to be allowed in school! 

These dresses are the ticket to each girl's education. Without them, they cannot be educated.


If your group will make pillow case dresses, please let us  know about the effort, and we will arrange it so that these girls get the dresses.

 Update JANUARY 2015 from Ben Bell:

I received this email today from Abusa Saulosi Suluma regarding the farm
production progress.  It is a very positive report  and I am pleased that
God continues to bless Ngodzi Ministries with great success.

We all will continue to pray for Abusa Suluma, his family, church and
ministry of feeding orphans and widows.

It is good to know that the master water well driller, Abusa Joseph, will
come to Ngodzi in February to help resolve the water well problems for
Ngodzi Ministries.  Thank you, Abusa Gary.

Terry, he is still feeding G.A.I.N. rice meals to supplement the native foods
between harvests.

We will continue praying for just the right amount of rain so that the maize
seeds do not wash away.  It appears that the irrigation water storage pond
is almost full and that the dam repairs are holding.  Thank you, Mary Lou.

The Gospel Station can share this report for the World Mission Team.  Thank
you, Randall.

In closing, Abusa Suluma is still winning souls for the Kingdom of Christ and
is discipiling them too.  I am very grateful for his efforts and I will
continue praying for great success at Ngodzi Village, Salima Province,
Malawi, Africa.

God Bless all of you for your prayers and support,

Ben Bell

OPERATION GLOBAL IMPACT:  GOAL -- "ONE MILLION SOULS SAVED"  Will you join us in this effort?

We are bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to the world.



The World Mission Team in 2012
We had 4 teams go to the schools in Kenya Africa where the Bible has been taught....but the teams brought the evangelism and the invitation to receive Jesus.  They report that 27,600 people prayed to accept Jesus!

In his reports from Kenya, Mike Russell credited the huge response to the preparation of the students and teachers having studied the Bible and he referenced these two scriptures:

1 Corinthians 3:6 
"I have planted, Apollos watered; and God gave the increase."

John 4:38
"I sent you to reap a harvest which is not the result of your own labors. Others have labored, and you are getting benefit from their labors."
