Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Greetings in the wonderful Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. As we pass the first quarter of this year, 2009, the missionary work is in full swing. We have had a multitude of requests from many parts of the world. One of those such requests is some Pentecostal people in Pakistan who have been in contact with us through our precious Bro. Larry Hart. After much prayer and consideration, we are sending a team there the Lord willing this coming May. As you probably have heard, the climate in this area is very hostile. As we have seen in the past, when the Lord has led us to go to many places such as Cali, Colombia, which at the time was the worst city in the world, but we saw God do marvelous things out of the efforts of the missionaries. We believe that the time is right. The cry is great. Please keep this in your prayers.
Also, we have teams going to South Africa throughout the month of May. You can see these dates and others posted on our calendar.
I myself am leaving on Monday, April 27th for the Philippines. I will be meeting with the pastors and missionaries to see how we can better forward the work throughout the Philippine Islands as we have many new endeavors there. Please keep us and all of these in your prayers. May God richly bless you.

Below is an email that I received a few days ago from Bro. Concepcion:
Dear my precious brother Daniel:
A warm Christian greetings to you and all the saints of there in Idaho in the precious name of our loving saviour Jesus Christ, our soon coming King.
First of all, we give thanks unto the Lord for all His goodness and mercy to all of His people. We give glory to His holy name for His marvelous works that He has done in these last few days here in our place. Last month we started our new house to house cottage fellowship to every household members of our church and there was a very good results that we now have some new families added in the assembly and one of them is an engineer who has a wonderful testimony on how God led him to be able to know the real message of the hour in these last days. And I am very happy to report to you also that there are now some teachers who are faithfully attending our regular Sunday fellowship and they are the result of our school campus ministry and also our radio ministry aired two times a week. Last Sunday we reached the average of 123 not including the juniors and the children and it seems that the place where we used for our gathering could no longer accommodate all the people and we are force now to look for another big and spacious space where it could accommodate 200 people. We are looking for a lot where we could have our church building, but we are only praying that God will provide us the best one. My precious brother if ever we can find one that is very suitable for our church would you be very willing to extend us some help on this matter? We will only put this thing in the hands of God. I can say that as the work now is rapidly progressing by the grace of God, we are really in need of a lot for our church so that we can have our regular schedule for our fellowship. Any development on this matter will be reported to you in my next e mail, but by this time until here only and once again we would like to express our heartfelt thanks for all of your help and support extended to us here for the ministry.
Thank you very much and God bless you Sir.
Your son in the Lord,
Bro. Ricardo S. Concepcion
