Tina Holloway

PJ called to let us know that Tina was not released from Piedmont Hospital as they had expected. Her medicines have been increased and though abdominal x-ray came back fine, she is still battling severe pain. They are hoping to go home in a few days. Until then they are keeping her as comfortable as possible.

From Our Missionaries

David Etter, China/North Korea writes: Please keep the next couple of months in your fervent prayers. We are currently planning a Summer Camp for all of the Third Culture Kids (TCK) here in our region. That should be an exciting time, and we are so please to be able to have Greg Marshall, Assoc. Pastor of New Life Baptist Church in New Wilmington PA, come and be our speaker for the week. You can find out more about him and New Life at We are expecting anywhere from 15-50 Jr./Sr. High students for this camp in July, so please lift it up.

Kevin Pestke, Africa, is preparing for the 2010 Bible Conference taking place in August at Kafulafuta. He lists below the expenses incurred from the 2009 Bible conference and the rest of his e-mail follows:

Maize – 197 Bags – 11,960,000 ($2,720)

Cabbage – 110 Bags – 3,300,000 ($750)

Onions – 90 Bags – 5,950,000 ($1,355)

Rape – 50 Bags – 500,000 ($120)

Beans – – 4,225,000 ($965)

Tomatoes – 100 Boxes – 4,050,000 ($925)

Misc. Items – 16,430,000 ($4,400)

This gives us a rough estimate as to what we need again for the 2010 conference. The total amount we are looking for in Kwacha is roughly around 48-50 million or around $10,500-$12,000 depending on exchange rate fluctuation. We initiated a small Maize project this year with the hopes of reducing the 12 million kwacha needed for that particular line item.

Please be praying for this conference – as many of you know, over 5,000+ Zambians will gather at Kafulafuta Baptist Mission to hear God’s word. Many will come to the place of salvation, many will make life changing decisions, many will be baptized, and some will be called to the place of full time gospel ministry. It is an exciting time!

Maybe your family, church, or Sunday school groups would be interested in sponsoring a particular vegetable and raising the funds needed for 25, 50, or 75 bags???

Joan Tyson, Honduras writes to request prayer for the family and friends of Honduran pastor, Carmen Carcamo who died at 1:00 AM after having a stroke a few nights ago. He was brought to Honduras by Bob during the war in Nicaragua (Bob was afraid he would be killed) and he had been preaching in Honduras for the 35 years since.

Only by God’s grace ~ Cathy C. Cochran ~ Psalm 121

Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

~ 1st Thessalonians 5:16-18

Some wonderful news I must share.

I must share this glorious news. About a year ago I had asked prayer for my cousins (Kim and Charlie) in Florida who lost both their children in a car accident. They tried the fertility drugs and gave up, tried adopting but nothing worked out. About a week ago Kim found out she is pregnant and yesterday she found out that it is twins. She and Charlie have had a rough time but stayed close to God through all of this. Now He has blessed them with 2 new babies. Join me in thanking Him for this glorious blessing.

And his final request is hat the Lord would “do more in our behalf as we continue to labor in His vineyard.” He states they can no longer give out tracts in public.
