5 Beloved, it is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers, strangers as they are, 6 who testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God. 7 For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. 8 Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth. 3 John 5-8 (ESV)

We have been blessed to support the spreading of the gospel in different works in different locations around the globe. Two efforts include the WBS and Gospel spreading in Nigeria, including our dear brother Sylvester Imogoh, and in various other parts of Africa including George Funk and the brethren in the Gospel Chariots Missions. In this report from George you will see that those two works are soon to be both working in Nigeria. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers. For the elders, Ken D

Gospel Chariot Missions Third Quarter Report 2016

Hi Everyone,

Hope this finds you all doing well. It is October and no stopping time. It has been a wonderful year so far once again, and we give God the Glory, and you all the appreciation, for helping us serve God in this way. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Please see below some of the happenings taking place this 3rd quarter. Hundreds and hundreds are being baptized into Christ every year and we cannot thank you enough.

The new Kenyan chariot is now up and running and, believe it or not, we have plans, Lord willing, of trying to build a new gospel chariot for Nigeria. Please pray for this new goal to build a new, big gospel chariot for Nigeria. There are 163 million people in Nigeria. Wow! Late September we flew a sales engineering manager from Nigeria to Kenya to measure up and see if we can build a gospel chariot in Nigeria and not export from South Africa.

Tom Opondo from Kenya e-mailed the following report: “Brother George. Sanyaolu, the Sales Engineering Manager, from ANAMCO completed his Kenyan assignment yesterday. In this way, border challenges and struggles will be reduced and the cost of chariots become affordable. Taxes will not eat big % of GCM funds. I took him to the airport this morning at 4:00 am. Prayers for safe flight home. Prayers for the church in Nigeria to be able to receive a chariot truck for evangelism. May the Lord bless George and all GCM supporters for sending him to Kenya. He has done a very good job. It was intensive work. Praying for good results for the brethren in Nigeria.”

Amen. Let’s all pray as we wait for a price on building a chariot in Nigeria. To God be the Glory. Thank You Lord.

In Him.  Love, Brother George Funk
