“I evaluate many organizations by: 'Do they have compassion?' 'Is their message Jesus?,' and 'Do they train and multiply?'."

Celebrating 7,000 hearts full of joy!

In November 2009, I experienced what it is like to live in the wonder of God while I was in India with the Oasis World Ministries team. Thousands of lives were being transformed: from darkness to light, hopelessness to peace, sin bound to free. There is no glory on earth like the power of the cross-its wonder, its love, and its intimate hand pulling us from the fires of hell.

I am witnessing some of the greatest fruit I've ever witnessed in my life! God is indeed doing "exceedingly abundantly above all I could have ever asked or thought!"

I am experiencing this with my good friend Bruce Ahlberg, a missionary to Guatemala. He is doing a huge share of the ministry with me.

The Oasis staff in India has done an incredible job with preparation and setup. We finished the first five-night festival in the village of Garladinne. Crowds swelled through the week as people witnessed the power and love of Jesus. Over 6,000 came forward to make jesus their "One True God." Over 3,500 filled out decision cards indicating that they would like a follow up visit. AFter the festival, it was a thrill to talk with some of these people who had never heard of Jesus before that night.

Many miraculous healings took place. God opened many deaf ears and blind eyes. One man leaped and jumped after God delivered him from bone and leg problems. The healing that touched me the most was that of a 9-year-old deaf girl. After I prayed, her mother came to me and said, "My daughter's ears were healed when you prayed a few minutes ago." The daughter lookedup at me with big brown trusting eyes and a bright smile, because she could hear sounds that she had never heard before.

Yesterday we conducted three church and well dedications. I walked the paths of these remote villages and interfaced with people who are so hungry for God; they couldn't hear enough about a God who died for their sins and loves them personally. Hundreds came to Christ even in these remote village settings! Today we travel to a more distant village for our second rfestival and pastor's school.

Thank you for supporting and praying for the Oasis team. You are helping make the dreams of many generatinos of missionaries become a reality. They did the work of planting and now we are reaping where they have sown. The sacrifices we make are small in comoparison to those who have given their lives, health, and families for centuries to prepare the soil for this day of harvest.

Pray for safety and health for the team. Pray for the free course of the Holy Spirit's leading, for weather (they say rainy season is early this year), and for many souls to find freedom in body, soul, and spirit...and continue to pray that God would expedite the healing of Tom's hip and help him with his summer schedule until he can bear weight on his leg again.

In His service,
