Updates to the work of the Staurolite Foundation

 

The work of the Staurolite foundation is year round. We are gearing up for the fall elk hunts for wounded military service men and women even as investments made in India on past mission trips are continuing to bear fruit. Please read below some recent stories of how the Staurolite foundation is supporting people with feet on the ground in southeast Asia sharing the gospel on a daily basis. Please join us all in praying for these people who are truly doing the Good deeds God has planned for them. They are loving, disciplining, and planting the seeds of the gospel on a daily basis. We do not share the names of the workers because persecution of Christians is active in southeast Asia. We often say how Blessed we are to have the privilege of hunting elk with true American heroes, well these folks are truly heroes of the Christian faith and we are doubly Blessed to be able to work alongside them and support them and their work.

The Staurolite foundation has been providing financial support to this pastor and his wife as they have literally taken this child into their family. There are many other children who are abused by parents, left alone during the day with no opportunity for school or no hope for a better life. The New Hope school, located in the Udayan Pally slum area of Kolkata, offers new hope for these children and for their parents. The children are given a basic education in English and math even as they are taught about Christ and his love and sacrifice for them.

Below are pictures of a training in southeast Asia. A  rechargeable video projector which was donated by the Staurolite foundation is being used to provide teaching materials on the book of Acts to a group of ethnic believers. There are native pastors who are out in the villages sharing the gospel and training people in the gospel of Christ. There are short-term visits by folks from America and we have many long-term workers there among these natives helping to disciple them. These believers were born and raised in a religion that many in America and across the world are warring against right now. We hear of failed efforts to defeat these groups who have terrorists among them and here we have an example of how to defeat the belief system that leads to the destructive behavior. The world is not changed by war but through love and training.

In the past, in order to show the Jesus film or use video for a training, a generator, projector, sound system, and speakers were carried by car and then often packed by men a good distance into remote villages to share the gospel. The rechargeable projector is the size of a projector you would attach to your computer and is easily carried with an extra battery by one person. During our own visits we have seen crowds of 300 and more come and watch the Jesus film. Many are led to salvation as a result of the showing. Please join us in praying for these bold heroes of the modern-day Christian faith who are daily in remote areas sharing the gospel and disciplining believers.

Thank you  for your prayerful support,
