Important Prayer Request–Doug and Christina Wilson, TMCI Missionaries in Dominican Republic

Number ministered to:  150.

Chris is working very hard at La Vega Christian School and teaching English 4 days a week. She is currently the new (for a short time) director of the English department at the school. Doug is preaching almost every week at El Puente International Church since he has taken over as interim pastor there. He is also trying to keep up with the Haitian schools and their needs. He is also still preaching at Iglesia Nueva Jerusalen once a month. He also filled in at La Vega Christian School this past month.


Our daughter, Mae, is enjoying her first few weeks of classes at Atlanta Leadership College.

The Lord has been moving through our ministry here in La Vega.

We continue to be healthy.

Prayer Requests:

We have had many different situations come up this past month. They have made changes in customs at the airport, our car is in the shop, and donations are down. We have yet to see what the changes in customs will do but it is highly probable that our expenses will go up there. We either have to have increase in our finances (in whatever way that comes) or we will need to look at returning to the U.S. Please pray for our financial situation and direction from the Lord. We believe this is just an attack from the enemy since so much is being accomplished and so much is going on.

Important Update from Jan L. Beaderstadt, Nepal and Bangledesh

Over 50 Indian pastors from Chennai came to attend the first of the Indian leadership training seminars being held by Rev. Jan L. Beaderstadt. The focus of the seminars was on Qualities of Leadership.

Over 50 Indian pastors from Chennai came to
attend the first of the Indian leadership
training seminars being held by Rev. Jan L.
Beaderstadt. The focus of the seminars was
on Qualities of Leadership.

Indian Mission trip

now underway

Traveling to the giant neighbor

south of Nepal has been in the works

for a long time. But it took an

unexpected turn of events to make it

finally a reality.

Rev. Jan L. Beaderstadt’s Nepal

visa was expiring and due to the big

Hindu holidays of Daishan and Tihar,

the government officers are closed for most of October. Since he had to leave

Nepal while waiting for new visa, it

was time to take advantage of his

Indian visa which he has rarely used.

Pastor Jan left Oct. 11 for Chennai,

India. This is the fourth largest city in

the country, and is the largest city

situated on the Bay of Bengal. The city

is the capital of the state of Tamil

Nadu and has the population of 4.3


Pastor Jan is spending just over two

weeks in the city before moving north

to additional teaching locations in

India. He is working with Rev.

Dicrosse of Bethel Harvest Ministries.

Besides preaching to the local church,

he is conducting two pastor seminars

on leadership. The first one was held

Oct. 18 with over 50 pastors in

attendance. The second one is

scheduled for the village areas on Oct.


Chennai is the traditional site of

the martyrdom of St. Thomas the

Apostle (a/k/a Doubting Thomas).

This disciple traveled from Jerusalem

to India where he taught the Gospel.

A number of churches in Chennai

claim to be founded by the Apostle,

making these churches some of the

oldest in the world.




Nepal persecution of

Christians not uniform

The persecution of Christians

continues in places across Nepal, but

it appears to not be uniform. In some

locations, local police harass Christian

Bible Schools and children’s homes,

while other locations, there seems to

be no problem.

The effect has had an opposite

effect of which those enforcing such

laws anticipated. Rather than

stopping evangelism, it appears to be

increasing. While street witnessing

may not be as common, there is more

efforts underway to do house

fellowship where people are invited

to learn of the Gospel.

Churches now require all being

baptized to sign legal papers stating

that they are being baptized

voluntarily. Officials don’t seem as

concerned about people making

commitments to Christ as they are

making fuss over baptism. Again,

such harassment is only happening in

certain parts of the country.

Nepal churches tend to be

independent and not part of any

denomination or association. The

harassment of ministries and churches

has forced many of these pastors to

start to work together as they make

their concerns known.

Officially, the government of Nepal

still claims that Christianity is less

than 1% of the country. However, the

church is closer to 18%, with churches

Stephanie Baughman, TMCI Missionary to Australia’s Tasmania

Number ministered to:  53,

This month I was focused on teacher training. CEF has a 30-hour college level course called Teaching Children Effectively which we began for children’s ministry leaders in the area. Also, I conducted a day-long Super Seminar training for a local church that has a Kid’s Club and would like to have a Vacation Bible School. In addition, I continued with four classes of children I teach each week now.


Our first Teaching Children Effectively course was held in Launceston.

Another teacher training, Super Seminar was held at a local church.

Permission was granted for a new Good News Club at a local primary school.

We were invited to do a Christmas program for an entire school about the Jesus part of Christmas.

Prayer Requests:

Pray that children will be drawn to the Good News Club starting at St. Leonard’s Primary School.

Teachers who were involved in TCE that they would continue their enthusiasm and be able to put into practice what they learned.

Spanning continents for Christ,



Harvest Festival prayer for kids before dismissing for Sunday school

Harvest Festival prayer for kids before
dismissing for Sunday school

It sure seems like a lot has happened since our last prayer letter to you. And,

indeed there have been some big events at Ufa Bible. Thank to those of you who

prayed for Harvest Festival. It resembles Thanksgiving Day in many ways. It

always great opportunity for family members and friends to get to know the

church and hear good news about salvation in Christ. It went well with the

beautiful decorations of fresh produce on tables up front. The message was

about abiding in Him in order to bring fourth fruit in every area of our life. One

family continued to attend Sunday services after Harvest festival.


Continue to pray for our ESL school as we clearly see the sings of struggling

economy. The thought has often hit us that the task ahead is overwhelming. But,

we are reminded that God is in control in many areas of our lives. He still

supplies. He will bring fruit in due time. Our part is simply be faithful. So, please

don’t forget to uphold us in your prayers. We continue to equip and invest in

lives, and many of them are young people. We praise God for the opportunity to

be ambassadors of the New Covenant which surpasses in glory the Older One.

We tend to think we are mere people wearing mere clothes, speaking and acting

the same as any earth citizen. But we know the reality is that He made us able

ministers of reconciliation, not of the letter but of the spirit.

Glenn and Lynne Schweitzer, TMCI Missionaries to Nicaragua

Number ministered to:  2,500,

Number saved:  10,

Because we were out of the country we have only received the report of one of our pastors:

Pastors Carlos and Veronica ministered to 483 persons in their churches. Ten (10) people accepted the Lord. They evangelized 1123 students in the public schools of La Paz and Diriamba.

Pastor Carlos also traveled every Friday to distant cities doing leadership training.


  1. God provided for our time in the U.S. and for provision for Emmy while we were away.

  2. We received a renewing and refreshing at the Conference.

  3. We returned to Nicaragua with renewed emotional and physical energy.

  4. The pastors in our ministry are expanding their territory.

  5. Our home in Florida was not damaged by the hurricane and we were able to get back to Nicaragua last Tuesday.

Prayer Requests

  1. Provision for our ministry including our Kindergarten in Nicaragua.

  2. Provision for ourselves.

  3. New paperwork for Emmy in that we can correct her birth certificate and be able to adopt her.

  4. That her Lupus goes into remission.

  5. That Glenn’s Diabetes goes into remission.

  6. That God direct our steps and thoughts. That He closes the doors that need to be closed and open the doors that need to be opened and, at the same time, give us an understanding of what He is doing.

  7. That God move in the minds of the Christians in the United States to recognize who He has anointed to be President for such a time as this since God uses those whose hearts and minds are open to Him no matter what their faults and even uses those who don’t know Him to achieve His ends.

  8. Prayer for the flood victims of Hurricane Matthew in the U.S. and the islands.

      9. Prayer for a coming together of all races in the U.S. for the common good and that the enemy in the form of hatred and violence be crushed under our feet.

Chris and Larena Johnson, TMCI Missionaries to Galway, Ireland

Hope Ireland Missions,

Greetings loved ones! Hope all is well with you. This

month is one of my favorite months. It’s the month my lovely

wife was born (what would I do without her?), it’s the month

we head into a new school year, and it’s the changing of a new

season. There are so many amazing things going on right now

that have me super excited to share with you all, I don’t know

where to start. First, I’ll tell you about Larena’s birthday.


For those of you who don’t know, Larena is the most

amazing person I’ve ever met. She’s selfless, hard working, and

cares about everyone she meets like a mother hen looking after

chicks. She’s amazing. So, this year I wanted to make her

birthday something special. She also didn’t have the best day

on her actual birthday, so I arranged a special party at Torch

for her. We had service as usual, but I made sure she didn’t

have any responsibilities for the night. I told her to just put her

feet up and rest. What she didn’t realize was that my message

that night about honoring others was all about her. I had a nice

comfy chair on the stage for our “special guest,” whom I told

her was there for this special occasion. She thought it was a

visitor from back home. When I told her she was the special

guest, she was seriously confused. But, we had her sit down on

the seat of honor as we played a video I made just for her. It

was a video of compiled footage from many of our friends and

family, saying how much Larena means to them. She was not

only surprised, but she was so moved by it she was weeping

through the whole thing.


Afterwards she told me how much it

meant to her, and that it was exactly what she needed to feel

recharged. See, I think it’s important to honor people and love

on them in great ways like that because when they give so much

of themselves, they need to know how much they’re

appreciated. Now, if you didn’t get a message from me about

sending in a video, it was because I was scrambling to get as

much together as I could before the Friday. In fact, I had such

an overwhelming amount of people who love and appreciate

Larena, I had quite the challenge in limiting the edited video to

8 minutes. But don’t worry! She saw them all!


The great thing about the night that we did this

special honoring, was that it was one of the first Torch services

of the new school year! It was a great way to set an example for

the youth. In fact, the message of honor was so contagious

that many of them began to tell others how much they appreciated

them. Another thing that’s exciting about this new school year is

the growth we’re seeing! We’re seeing a handful of first-year

students come in excited to be a part of Torch. We’re also seeing

our older ones being bold and inviting their friends. It’s so

exciting to look back on where we started off a year ago, and where

we are now. I feel honored to be able to put together messages for

these guys that will strengthen them in their faith.


Another thing I’m super excited about is where we will

be going with our young adults ministry. For years we’ve been

cultivating this idea of cyclical discipleship. Basically what that

means is that as the younger youth grow up and mature into

strong followers of Christ, they will then teach and set the example

for the younger ones that are coming up. It’s a cycle that we hope

will continue through generations and build the church up in a

great and healthy way. Initially, I thought it would happen within

the youth program. However, we ran into obstacles such as

transportation issues, schedule issues, and of course the fact that

during their last two years in secondary school, they’re so

focused on diligently studying and preparing for the hardest

exams of their lives (the leaving cert), many of them simply fall

off the planet for months. So, after much prayer, we felt that the

solution lied within the development of the young adults.


This past year, as we began the Torch worship services,

we had many of the young adults step up and become leaders.

We’ve seen much growth in them, and also much of that cyclical

discipleship take place. For the past year we’ve been able to

provide an atmosphere of worship and solid teaching for the

youth, we’ve just seen them grow leaps and bounds in their walk

with God. This is what we want to now strive for with the young

adults group. It is with great pleasure that I get to announce that

we will be launching a young adults worship service called “Salt”

this winter. It will be a service much like Torch, but designated

for college students. Galway has multiple colleges spread about,

and we feel like this ministry will give us the ability to reach out

to many unsaved young people, minister to our current young

adults better, and provide the space for growth that we wouldn’t

necessarily be able to do if we just met at our house like we have

been. This is an exciting time for us, and an exciting time for

ministry here. Pray these things go well! Til next time! Chris


Prayer Request:


Please keep praying we

will reach unsaved youth,

and young adults! Our

hearts are to keep bringing

the Gospel message to



Please pray for the 11

people who were baptitzed

last month, and the 4

people who gave their

hearts to Jesus—that they

grow in their walk, and in

turn bear fruit!


Please pray BLESSINGS on

ALL of our donors! (Yes

YOU) as we are SO

thankful to be able to do

this work–and YOU make

it possible! God is doing

amazing things, and using

you to accomplish them

here! Thank you for

praying, for standing, and

your great generosity It’s

changing lives here!!

Darren O’Quinn , TMCI Missionary to Uganda,

Number ministered to:  100;

Number saved:  1;

We have been getting everything together for our trip to the US. Going back and forth to Kampala to the Embassy. Getting everything together for our plane tickets and our travels… It was an adventure just getting them to accept my credit card for the airline tickets; that took three days. It really was an adventure.

And we have been setting up for the fund raising for the new compound we will be building soon, good Lord willing. In Jesus name, Amen!

Everything coming together pretty well… A few issues but I believe our Lord will fight the battle for us…

Our chickens are producing about 300+ eggs a day. And we butchered our first pig

and had a party with our children for Mama Fat’s birthday, it was so much fun.

And we celebrated our one year anniversary yesterday, October 3, 2016.

GOD is so good!!! Blessings, love, and prayers from all of us here in Uganda!


A man that I have been ministering to since the first time I came to Uganda, has confessed Jesus as Lord of his life. He was delivered from some demons.

He allowed us to clean him up, he needed to go to the hospital for a little while, HalleluYAH!!! he is a work in progress like all of us but the Lord is restoring him.

He is in his right mind and he is staying with us now…

Also have to Praise our Lord my son is getting a US passport we pick it up on Thursday. Thank you Jesus! Our Lord is so faithful!!! My wife’s visa everything just came together we never had any problems… So many people were having a hard time with-visas… The Lord was going before us all the way!!!

Prayer Requests:

Praise GOD!!! We will be in the US from 11-12-2016 until 12-28-2016, Praise GOD! We would like to visit TMCI while we are there. Please pray for funding to come through for all we need to do while there.

And also please pray for everything to run smoothly in Uganda while we are in the US.

Report from Rev. Kevin Rosendahl, TMCI Missionary to Mexico

September 2016 Report.

Dear Friends of GCOM,

It was good to see many of you in Minnesota. Thanks to those who encouraged me and thanks for your prayers! Thanks also for the opportunity to speak in many supporting churches.

mex-crusadeMy mom, dad and I drove down together to Laredo, Texas in mid-August pulling my heavy trailer full of ministry supplies. My parents then blessed Sylvia, Joshua and me with a stay in a timeshare with them for 10 days as they attended my dad’s Army reunion. It was a quality time together and we thank God for this opportunity. I then headed to Mexico to cross in the ministry supplies to Nuevo Laredo. I went to Monterrey as I had been asked to do children’s outreaches and evangelistic crusades in one of the poorest areas in Monterrey. Pastor Alejandro Quiroga and his church believe God is leading them to start a new church in this neighborhood and this was the kick-off event. Most of the people in this area live in pallet houses and have great spiritual and physical needs.

I had the privilege to minister over a radio station which is broadcast all over Mexico. God has opened many doors to spread the gospel message!

I had the privilege to minister over a radio station which is broadcast all over Mexico. God has opened many doors to spread the gospel message!

I conducted three crusades and three children’s outreaches and they all went extremely well as we had overflowing crowds of people at each event. Over 300 people of all ages prayed to give their lives to Christ and God touched many people physically and emotionally as well. Each child received a nice toy, a bag of school supplies, a bag of candy and a full-fledged meal provided by two friends of the ministry. It was wonderful to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they received their blessings! Each family also received a New Testament and each child received a children’s book sharing more about salvation. The youth each received a book about healing life’s hurts through Christ. Restoration Christian Center, the name of the church in English, will follow up with these new believers to further disciple them for Christ.

Pastor Quiroga is also in the process of distributing the blankets, quilts, beans, tools, etc. that we did not give out at the event. The church also plans to minister to the children once a week and will furnish a meal to everyone who attends.

In December we will be doing our Christmas outreaches and so please pray about helping GCOM with new or good used toys, blankets, hygiene items, school supplies, beans and rice, school supplies and Spanish Bibles or New Testaments. These can be donated to the ministry or money can be donated to the ministry for the purchase of these things in Texas. We will need these things, ideally, by mid- November. Please also pray for God to guide us as to where to do the outreaches and pray for many people of all ages to come to Jesus.

We are planning on attending a conference in Keystone, SD called “The Keystone Project” where people from all over the world come to be trained on “Disciple Making Movements” and church planting through reproducing discipleship. We will be going to learn but also to help translate as forty ministers from Latin America are coming to the conference. Please pray God uses this conference greatly in our lives and ministry as we are already doing some of this training in the ministry of GCOM but feel this full-fledged training will prepare us to be more effective in the area of reproducing discipleship and starting “Church Planting Movements” throughout Mexico and the world.

Thanks to all of you for your friendship, your prayers for the ministry and for financial support. Our committed monthly support is still substantially less than the amount we need to do the ministry so we continue to trust God to make up this difference however He sees fit. If you are not already helping GCOM out as an intercessor or as a financial supporter, please pray about becoming involved. We are a faith ministry that totally relies on the prayers of God’s people and the provision of God through His people.

May God bless you abundantly in every area of your lives and may He become more and more real to you each day. We love and appreciate all of you!!

Serving Christ,

Doug and Christina Wilson, TMCI Missionaries in Dominican Republic-

Number ministered to:  100;

Chris continues with teaching at La Vega Christian School. This is a real joy in her life. Doug continues to do administrative work and teaching the Word. We are also teaching English…Chris started back up with the little girl she teaches and we continue with another woman.


This past month we had a financial miracle. We have seen some ministry expansion. God is providing daily for our needs.

Prayer Requests:

Please pray for strength. We are working in some new areas of ministry (as well as continuing with the old). We have been physically tired as some of this is physically taxing but there is a lot of emotional and spiritual fatigue. This is the most difficult.

Financial Prayer Requests:

Along with this we still are having the financial struggles. We have seen the Lord come through in our daughter’s school bill and are continuing to believe Him that this will be paid each month. We had two unexpected donations which have gone a long way in helping this month, we need to see God continue to supply.

Please pray for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Thank you,

Doug and Chris
