Dear Friends,

As we watch our world’s circumstances it seems more and

more like Christ could return at any time – earthquakes, floods,

hurricanes, wars and rumors of wars, false teachers abounding

and persecution of Christians increasing. God’s Word tells us

in 2 Peter 3:9, that God “wants none to perish but desires all to

come to repentance and to a knowledge of the truth”. God, in

His great kindness and love for mankind is giving us signs of

his return but continues to wait for more and more people to

come to Him before He returns. God’s patience towards

mankind should stir us to tell our friends, our loved ones, our

neighbors, our co-workers and everyone about Him and how

we can enter into a personal relationship with Him!

GCOM just completed a ministry trip to different parts of

central and southern Mexico. This trip was like a whirlwind as

we went from place to place graduating students from the

Bible College, ministering to children, training pastors,

distributing literature and doing whatever else God put in front

of us to do. It truly was a blessed trip! All in all, we saw close

two hundred seventy people come to the Lord, graduated one

hundred and sixty people from the Grace Christian Outreach

Ministries “School of Ministry”, began construction on a

church in the mountains of San Luis Potosi, central Mexico

and saw other villages where churches are needed, trained

many pastors in multiplying disciples and distributed many

thousands of Gospel tracts, books of Luke and several hundred

Bibles. We were also blessed to donate a van to the pastor in

the mountain village where the first church is being built!


GCOM has also recently completed its first formal graduations of Bible College students in Pakistan. Many others have completed the classes before but this was the first time we did formal graduations. They were beautiful graduations!

Several Bible Colleges have recently been started in India and soon they will have the training materials not just in English but in their native language of Telegu. This will allow us to start many more Bible Colleges in this part of India.

Our goal for these Bible Colleges is not to give people strictly head knowledge but to prepare them to be instruments in God’s hands where He can use them to do ministry wherever He has called them. From our Bible College graduates in Nuevo Laredo many graduates have gone out and are planting churches, others are doing street evangelism, children’s ministry, radio ministry, and pastoral ministry.

Children’s Outreach

Please pray for God’s blessing as GCOM does a large children’s ministry in the commercial center of Monterrey this Saturday and an evangelistic crusade for all ages this Sunday. We are believing God to fill the commercial center up which would allow us to minister to two thousand people at each outreach. We are also wanting to bless each child with a toy to show them God’s love in a practical way. If you want to help us purchase toys for the children just put a note in with your donation telling us it is for toys.


God never ceases to amaze us with His goodness. Thanks to all of you who partner with GCOM through prayer and financial support. As God calls GCOM to reach more and more people for Christ and to train more and more leaders we are in need of more committed monthly supporters to help us extend the ministry to touch more lives. Please pray and ask God if He would like you to play a part in helping GCOM reach the lost around the world as either a committed prayer supporter or as a committed financial supporter or both. Thanks for considering this and we know God is faithful to guide His people.

If you are already a committed prayer or financial supporter or both please know you are the foundation of this ministry and please know we appreciate your sacrifice to help GCOM spread the Gospel!

Serving Christ,

Kevin Rosendahl

Excellent Report from Mexico form Rick, Maricruz and Daniel

Dear Friends,

We would like to say thanks to all of you who have been praying for us. The days are becoming more dangerous where we are ministering. Please continue to pray for our personal protection. We fear not the enemy but put our trust in God who is able to keep us safe as we serve Him. We love advancing the Kingdom of God even with the persecution and attacks. The scripture says if your being persecuted your walking with Jesus. Serving the Lord is not an easy life. It comes with many difficulties but we overcome in Jesus!

The World is full of strive and conflict. God is full of Peace and Joy. Try turning off the news for a Month and spend time talking with the Lord. You will find that lost Peace and you will be renewed. Don’t spend so much time focusing on the World but turn your thoughts to God your Loving Father.

The radio ministry is growing way beyond what we expected. We are focused on Sharing the Love of Jesus with our listeners. Everyday people are turning their hearts to God and asking Him to save them. It’s fun to hear our station being played on buses, in taxis, being played in businesses and homes. Just yesterday we heard Maricruz preaching in a hospital. The message she was sharing was so anointed that everyone in the waiting room was listening. Lets keep praying for people who listen to receive Jesus and open their hearts to change.

Today is our family day so I need to go be with Mari and Daniel. I wanted to include you all in this special day. We Love You!!!

Pray and Fast for our Nation: Next 3 months are crucial

Bishop Bob Coulter: PRAY FOR OUR NATION:
These next 3 months are crucial for our nation

Forces of evil continue to battle for position of power in this nation. They are hard at work to hold their ground and promote chaos among the leaders and people of this nation.

We must have the same resolve as the enemy has. We must be willing to pay the price for the soul of this nation.

Many Christian are praying that God will change the United States. I have noticed that when God moves to change the circumstances, He raises up a leader He can use. Rom 13:1 tells us that it is God who raises up leaders. Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God (NKJV)

Then we are instructed in 1 Tim 2:1-3 Therefore I exhort first that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior (NKJV)

But sometime however a leader needs extra help from the people. For example, Esther was willing to go before the King, but she called her people to prayer and fasting.

Esther 4:15-16 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: 16 “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”(NKJV)

The question is how much do you want reformation in the USA? Are you willing to pay the price?

This year, next year, and all the years to come, it is critical that we learn to listen and walk in the Spirit. We need bold Christians to make a difference for Christ in this world. God has called TMCI to make a difference, not only here in the United States, but throughout the world.

We must boldly pray and boldly speak out against the evil in this country.

Last year, we prayed and fasted for our nation on Mondays at lunch. I invite you to join me as I pray and fast for our nation once again on Mondays at lunch time (at whatever your lunchtime is) starting October 2 until the end of the year. I feel urgently in my spirit that the next three months are crucial in the life of our nation.

Earnestly praying for our nation,
Bishop Bob Coulter

Important Update from the Pele’s in American Samoa

From: Eva Pele <missionofhopeusa@aol.com>
Date: Sun, September 03, 2017 12:09 am

Just wanted to share an update with you. We had an extremely successful medical mission this year. Praise the Lord!

 Also,  I (Eva) am leaving American Samoa Monday Sept 4th. I am returning to SC with  an 8 yr old little girl for eye surgery. Lourdes is going blind with congenital cataracts. The Dr. that came with us on the medical mission this year has arranged for her to have surgery in Columbia, SC sponsored in part by the Rotary Club. He said in July if  she doesn’t have this surgery within a few months she will be blind for the rest of her life.  Praise God she has surgery scheduled for Sept 14th on one eye and Sept 21 on the other eye at Palmetto Health.

Pele will stay in Am Samoa as we have much work to do here. I will return back to American Samoa with her sometime in Oct. There was no one to accompany her to SC. Her mother has two other small children and the father has left the family and doesn’t have anything to do with them. So I offered to take her for the surgery.  It’s a sacrifice for us, but Pele and I are willing.

Please pray for a successful journey there and back and a successful surgery. Doctors expect great results.

Our God is great!

Justin and Ashli Galloway-TMCI Missionaries to the Navajo Reservation in Utah

September 01, 2017

Psalm 126

First, we want to start by thanking you for your support of BHP.  As you all know, we were able to travel over 2300 miles and settle here in Monument Valley, UT.  Ashli has started home school with the girls and Hanner is along for the ride.  I have started my job at the high school and am learning a lot about the education field.

During the month of August we have been involved with 2 of the 11 partner churches.  With each, Dine Community Church and Oljato United Methodist Church, we were involved in two separate activities.  We are supporting Sunday School efforts in both churches and making plans for other ministry activities.

We’ve learned a lot about the culture of the Reservation that we didn’t already know, Ashli has begun building solid foundational relationships with the ladies in leadership at both churches we’ve visited and our children have begun meeting new friends.

While there are challenges to life on the Rez, the simplistic way of life here is contagious.  The need to go, go, go and the addiction of busy-ness are becoming figments of our imagination.  Our evenings are slower paced than they’ve ever been, we are spending more time together as a family and are able to enjoy the sounds of our children playing with their precious Navajo friends.  Ashli has found a running buddy, who Interestingly enough,  is an older gentleman who was raised Lutheran but hasn’t been to church in many years.  He and his wife both teach at the high school with me and Ashli is excited to use her running time as a missions opportunity, as well.

We are excited to begin branching out into other partner churches and beginning to build relationships there.  Please be in prayer for the Navajo people.  The leaders of each of these churches as well as the leadership in other Navajo Christian churches.  There is such a strong presence here of believers who are just weary.  Yet, in their weariness, we see such hope.  Our brothers and sisters have such wonderful ideas for community outreach and continuing to grow their churches.  They have stated on multiple occasions how excited they are to have us here.  Honestly, the privilege is ours.  What a journey He has placed before us.  We go forward with excitement and expectation for all He will do in and through our family.

Chris & Larena Johnston – TMCI Missionaries to Galway, Ireland

Prayer Requests We would be honored if you would pray with us concerning:

Please pray for the new students who will be coming in for the fall semester–that we would reach more college students for Jesus and pour into them this year!

Please pray for TORCH this new school year, for more leaders, deeper passion, more investment and commitment from our current leaders and those the Lord will send to us!

Please pray for our life adjustments with li�le Anora and pray for God’s provisions.

Also pray we will con�nue to reach the lost demographic in Galway for Jesus! Especially the youth and young adults! Visits from Afar, and Keeping on! Hello loved ones! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since our little Anora Christina was born! It’s been a lot of adjusting, late nights, long feeds, doctors appointments, visitors from afar and Skype sessions! Thank God for Social media, as it helps us stay connected to family and friends miles away! Anora was born with a little tongue tie, and we had to get a procedure done to get that taken care of. Then, she was able to feed better and Mama wasn’t in so much pain. It was a real struggle in the beginning as she also was a bit jaundice so we had doctors appointments 3 days in a row. That was pretty hard on me physically, but the Lord really gave me the strength to keep getting her checked. She is the most precious gift and we are SO very thankful for ALL your prayers, and your words of encouragements, your packages, your cards—your thoughtfulness! We are so very thankful, and words can never express how much it means to us. We don’t feel so alone or so far away from our family and friends back home because you all show you care. Thank you!! We had a whirl wind visit from my parents which was a real blessing! My mom came and cleaned, cooked, and treated us many of the days they were here. Of course many dirty diapers were changed in my and Chris’ stead, so we could catch up on a few things that we got behind in. It was a real blessing to have Papa Mark here to help Chris with the lighting/sound project at the church. There is just so much to still be done, and with the people he needs to help him get it done unavailable most weeks, it is taking a lot longer than expected. However, when Papa was here, Chris said it was like getting 3 days worth of work done in one afternoon! So thankful for his help in that! We are that much closer to have everything upgraded and done. The sound is officially completed, and it sounds amazing! No pun intended! 🙂 So many people made comments when they switched over on how clear everything was, and how much better the music sounds coming from the speakers! Now once we get the lights all sorted, it will be the full package! Chris is hoping to get that done very soon. Chris is planning on heading into Galway town soon, to try and connect with some new youth. Please pray the Lord will give us the leaders and the proper strategies in how to reach more the of the unreached demographic in this city! It is our hearts deepest desire! Chris is also planning some things for the fall for the young adults group SALT. We are hoping to break into 2 small groups instead of 1, and get those rolling, as we grow. We are hoping to find a way to also connect with students from the local Hope Ireland Missions Chris & Larena Johnston – Missionaries to Galway, Ireland AUG 2017 Anora gets special visits from family! “God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continued to help them.” Hebrews 6:10 Papa Mark helps with the light upgrade! colleges here. Please continue to pray for that progress. Chris’ mom Patti is currently here with us helping us with baby Anora. She will be here for a couple weeks. It helps me, as little Anora has decided to be a cluster feeding baby. She will eat one hour, give me about 10-15mins in between and want to feed again for another hour…then she will sleep for a couple hours in the afternoon. She will then cluster feed for the evening until around 11pm. I can’t complain though because she only wakes once in the night–so we get a few good hours of uninterrupted sleep. Chris has not stopped going in and working on the sound/lighting, or even stopped TORCH, or SALT. He’s still meeting with our leaders and investing in them, so I am home alone many times. It is so helpful to have someone here to help sometimes just bring me a glass of water, or make a meal…as I am unable to do these things very easily. Please pray for Chris, as he is still doing everything he normally does, and then has taken on a lot of the cleaning/cooking extra around the house as I am unable to leave the couch or the bed at times with Anora’s feeding schedule. It’s been a lot for him to balance, and I’ve really encouraged him to give himself some slack, but he keeps plowing ahead full speed. If you could please pray for the leaders this year, that we will be able to really invest in them, and the young adults that will be coming into GCF this fall. We really want to pour into them, and invest in them. Also, we are unable to grow if we were to keep the small groups at our house. Right now we average 16-18 that is our max for small groups. We have averaged around 25-30 young adults for the SALT services, and if we could get 2 groups of 6-10 per small group—that would be amazing! We really want to make deeper connections with out college students, and get them plugged into GCF, a deeper faith, and fellowship together. Please pray for those that we are to reach this school year. We want to make a difference here for the glory of God!

Please also pray for me as I find my new role as a mama, and still doing what God has for me to do here! I am taking a couple months off, but will be hitting the ground running again hoping to invest deeper one on one with the young ladies God has given into our care here. We love this work and the ability to do it!

Finally, thank you for time and time again, being answers to prayer for things we seek the Lord on. We thank God for people who are so in tune with His Holy Spirit, that they come along and meet needs that only our Heavenly Father knows about! You guys are legends (as they say here in Ireland!) We love you! Till next time, all our love! ~

Larena, Chris & Anora!

Report from Rick and Maricruz in Mexico

Dear Friends,

The Summer is over for us and Daniel has been back in school for several weeks. Our trip to Oregon passed very quickly. We were very busy ministering in churches and small groups. Our plans to have some vacation time just didn’t work out for us. We wanted to visit more friends and family but just didn’t have time to do so and I apologize for that. We were blessed with a new Honda Pilate and ended up driving 12 days back to Cancun. That’s the reason our time in Oregon was cut short.

I wouldn’t want anyone to feel bad for us. Because we drove back we still have airfare to fly to Orlando late November. Disney gave us free tickets and we found a 1 bedroom condo we can use. There’s nothing like a free vacation to Disney World. Yes 8 days in Orlando and it’s all paid for. The Lord is very Good to us.

The Radio ministry continues to grow and reach more people for the Lord to Bless. I am trying to find a way to purchase sound proofing for the broadcasting room. We want to get rid of all the echo so our broadcasts will be clear. Maricruz does here broadcast live with Facebook if any one wants to watch.

I will send another ministry update soon.

God Bless

Rick,  Maricruz and Daniel

Excellent Report from Paul Gonzales, Mexico

One the last trip to Oaxaca we gave away over 900 pairs of my glasses along with a free exam.   95% of the people helped where indigenous and very very poor. Most people work in the fields.

The lady (pictured) got her eyeglasses for the first time in her life.  She is 95 years old. She said she sold the dress she was wearing since she could see to sew.   She lives with her son who earns about $10 a day in the fields.
