Bishop Coulter: the word from the Lord for TMCI 2018

This is the word I received from the Lord for TMCI for 2018

This going to be a year of explosion. The Holy Spirit will bring forth new revelation in your life. We will experience explosive growth spiritually and numerically. The Lord says, “Go deeper in Me and I will bring you to a higher plain so that I can give you new revelation. You will be able to see beyond the horizon with your own eyesight and will see with spiritual eyesight what I have for you. But you must pay the price of time and effort to know Me better. Much I have for those who will go deeper in Me. Much more for those who truly take the time with Me, so I can speak to them in that still quiet voice. Those who go deeper in Me will go farther this year in the spiritual and physical areas of their lives. I am ready to explode your ministry so that I may be glorified for what I accomplish through you. Go deeper and I will empower you for great and mighty works. Go deeper and know that I am God, and nothing is impossible with Me. Go deeper and I will reveal the secrets of the kingdom to you. Go deeper and reap the benefits of My blessing and empowerment. Go deeper and receive the renewed anointing in your life. Go deeper and I will give you the desires of your heart because your heart will be filled with My desires. Go deeper and you will see the salvation of the Lord in all that you do.” Thus says the Lord.

Walking on the Word Ministries, Doug, Chris and Mae


It Has Been A Busy Year.

2017  What a busy year!  As we look back at when we sent our last newsletter we see that it has been almost a year.  And for this we apologize!  We have done a little traveling, worked at various projects and with many mission teams, and had a little fun with friends along the way.  If you are a regular reader of our emails then you know that in the past year Chris was promoted to the Director of the English Department at La Vega Christian School when the previous director had to leave to help out with his sick parents.  Doug had been the interim pastor at The Bridge Church, and since the return of the founding pastor, has been given the job of Assistant Pastor and Administrator.  Besides working full-time at La Vega Christian School, Chris enjoys tutoring private English classes in the afternoons.  Doug has also started some tutoring of his own with two people that he is helping out.  The main work that Doug continues to do is administrative in nature.  He continues to keep track of project monies for different building projects and he also works closely with the logistics of teams that come to help the ministry here.  We are currently working on 3 different building projects: one church, and two classrooms.  The church is in a community in the mountains named Tireo.  They are currently meeting in a small wooden building.  This new building, when finished, will be much larger and stronger.  The classrooms are part of the Haitian school programs that we work with.  These classrooms will not just be for the schools but will double as Sunday school rooms for the churches.


With two hurricanes this past year there was plenty of work to be done.  As you can see from the photo on the left the Camu river, which runs around La Vega, overflowed its banks and did plenty of damage.  Although the neighborhood we live in saw nothing from the hurricanes, some of the poorer areas near the river had plenty of flooding.  With the help of many of you we were able to participate with other missionaries and fulfill some of the loss this poor area had.   Below we are buying and handing out sheet sets, pillows, frying pans, and chairs from donations that came into Walking On The Word Ministries.  During this event we were also able to give out clothing and stove tops that were donated by others.


During the year we had many different mission teams come through.  As mentioned before, one of Doug’s many different administrative responsibilities is to coordinate teams that come.  This past year we had teams from all over the United States.  They helped with church services, United For Him, summer VBS, construction, and end of the year Haitian school parties.  They shared The Gospel by giving a helping hand and sharing the love of Christ.


We are currently working on many different building projects.  This includes a church, two education buildings, bathrooms for a church, and a house.  To the left you can see the holes for the foundation at one of the education buildings.  Below you can see people working on the foundation of the church in Tireo.  Thank you for your help with the ministry here in the D.R.

A little about Chris

Chris had the privilege to speak on Mission’s Day at La Vega Christian School about mission’s in the USA.  She also had the amazing opportunity to lead the 30 Hour Famine with the senior class, where they learned the importance of giving of themselves to help others. She is very busy with her work at La Vega Christian School and her private tutoring but is loving it!  Here are some pictures of Chris for you to enjoy.

Christmas Boxes

Each year we do a little Christmas party with as many of the Haitian schools as we can.  Along with a little food we hand out Christmas boxes to the children.  It is a lot of fun but a lot of work.  Thank you for all that you do so that we can do our little part here in the Dominican Republic.


The Dominican Republic is a land of much variety.  We had the opportunity to travel to a few different locations this past year that we have been wanting to visit.  In January, we had to opportunity to go with some friends to a natural spot in the middle of the capital called Los Tres Ojos.  It is a large cave that you have to go down into that has 3 pools throughout it.  It is very interesting to walk through and very beautiful.  It is hard to believe that you are in the middle of a major city when you are there.  The other place that we were able to visit was Lago Enriquillo which is a salt lake that is below sea level located in a desert region of the country.  It is the home to many iguanas and alligators.  Below you are able to see a few of our pictures from these two trips.

Prayer Requests

1. Please pray for our continued health
2. The Lord’s guidance and direction
3. We are in need of a more reliable vehicle
4. Please pray for Mae and her next steps
Finally we pray that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a very merry Christmas.  We also pray that you have a great new year.  We could not be here doing this with out the prayers and support of everyone reading this.  We appreciate you!  We plan on being back in the United States this summer.  Please contact us by email, Facebook, or other means if you would like us to speak to your church, small group or just for a visit.  Please consider supporting our work here this next year, either by monthly donation, special gifts, or your online shopping.

UFA Bible Ministries, Stas Karpenko

What an amazing year this has been for our family and for Ufa Bible Ministries. It has been a year of whirlwind of tasks and challenging struggles but God was giving us His victory.

In this letter I wanted to share with you about our other ”featured” believer to give you a deeper understanding how you could pray for our ministry. This is Lilia – a Bashkir lady that we have already mentioned in some of our prayer letters. She got saved while she attended med college in Ufa and was part of our church. Now lives and works in one of a county-seats in Bashkortostan. She works as a dentist for kids in a county clinic. In fact, she is the only children’s dentist for miles in that remote Muslim county. She is like a Lidya from the book of Acts – knowledgeable and reputable yet humble woman. Sometimes she battles with a Muslim ”beasts” – Islamic men who want to convert her.

Well, enough said. We ask your prayer for her that our Lord would give her a good husband.

Secondly, pray for a new church plant to be established in this county that lucks a church. Tim has finished his a half-year of homeschool successfully. He had a test on his Russian studies achievements at a local school and did great. It is interesting to observe how he picks up on Christian practices such as carrying his Gideon new testament with him, searching for a passages at the worship and so on. Another baby is growing well too.

We are now looking forward to the celebration of our Savior’s birth at a Special Christmas outreach service on January 7th.

Please pray for open hearts and minds to savor to God’s truth. Pray that, as people of Russia are as sensitive to the gospel as never during Christmas, we would have a good attendance at the service. Especially our friends and family about who we are constantly interceding before the throne. Also, we ask you to pray for closing this year financially and starting a new one with a cushion.

We are so grateful for each of you for your prayers and support of our ministries. You are great example of God’s faithfulness to us. We wish each of you wonderful Christmas season and God’s best in the new year ahead! You can make tax deductible contribution to Ufa Bible Ministries which is recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Great Report from Justin and Ashli Galloway, Beautiful Harvest Project (Navajo Nation)

January 8, 2018

Psalm 126


What happened to 2017?  It seems like only yesterday we were on St. Simons Island planning this vision of a ministry.  

December was a tremendous undertaking but was a blessing to us as we were able to visit with friends.  The weekend of December 8th was spent with the visiting teams from the East Coast.  Tab Smith Ministries and Pure Water Ministries came and enormous efforts were put into distributing 1500+ Christmas Shoe Boxes, 250 food bags for the elderly and hats, gloves, scarves, shoes with the boxes.  This was in combination with the pastor training for all 13 partner churches.  Following this weekend two of the family members from Dine Christian Church at White Rock Point came over for dinner.  We enjoyed the conversation but know that they were asking tough questions that needed to be answered truthfully about our decision to move to the Rez as well as the adjustment following.  We have built relationship with a single father of three girls.  The elementary age girls attend church weekly and the father sees to it that they make it there each week but his belief system is Traditional Navajo.  Justin felt the Spirit prompt him to invite him to attend church and he did.  It is not our goal to evangelize to the lost but to support the Navajo in this.  However, it was a step of trust and faith on this father’s part to come and it was a confirmation in the relationships we are building here on the Rez.  

A partner church in Metter, GA, sent 50 sweatshirts with funds to purchase items to complete Christmas gift bags for the children/youth who attend VBS in the summer as well as others in the community.  These were distributed at a Christmas worship event along with the shoe boxes provided by TSM and PWM.  

Ashli and the girls were able to tag along with a leader from Dine Christian Church to deliver shoeboxes in the communities surrounding White Rock.  Actually, Ashli took the minivan off roading.  They delivered 45 shoe boxes the Sunday before Christmas.  Ashli and the girls learned how to sing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” in Navajo and enjoyed some fun relational time with sweet Navajo friends.

First Baptist Church of Monticello collected 110 Christmas Shoe Boxes and provided them to us to distribute at our discretion.  Justin used his school contacts to set up a distribution through Tse’bii’nidzisgai Elementary School.

Faith Covenant Church of God is not a partner church of BHP but we have contacts who serve there.  They were self funding and organizing an outreach event to distribute fruit and candy bags to families in the Douglas Mesa area near Monument Valley.  They reached out to us to see if we could support their effort.  We utilized some of the TSM/PWM Christmas Shoe Boxes to do so.  They went throughout the community delivering the gifts, singing Christmas carols and praying over families.  Again, Navajo reaching Navajo! This is our desire and our mission in being here-to equip the Navajo to reach their own people

The month of December totals 1700+ contacts with the Navajo people.  With 170,000 Navajo living on the Reservation we were able to touch the lives of a full percentage point of the population with the teamwork of TSM and PWM.  That is an accomplishment with Kingdom results!


Justin and Ashli Galloway
