BBC NOW 6 MOTORBIKES STRONG!
Two new faces who attended our August Pastor’s Conference have now completed their BBC basic training. They began their “field trials” with BAWANA GAMES this week by riding out with the BBC Motorbike Team. As I write this, they are out playing games with over 1,000 children in 3 remote villages of Balama.
Children intently listening to BBC leaders tell a Bible Story.
Under the leadership of BBC Leader Carlitos Jorge, these 2 men have shown remarkable skill in dealing with the very large crowds of village children. That takes patience and a true love for children, for it is not an easy task when many of the children show little respect for authority.
I take my hat off to ALL the BBC Teams for how they train the children with love, while showing them there is a better way of life because Jesus loves them. Saying they are making an IMPACT, is putting it lightly, for their work is bringing 1000’s of all ages to JESUS, and new churches are being planted because of it.
It takes teamwork to handle 60kg sacks coming off the tall pillars in our barns.
NEW “UNDER THE TREE CHURCHES” OPEN IN 2 COUNTIES
The Mango Tree Sister Church of Mpaca Village opened a NEW BAWANA GAMES program this month in Maguaia Village, Balama District. Over 100 adults and children attended, which looks promising for a new church to be planted.
NAMUNO DISTRICT LEADER, Pastor Alberto, planted a NEW CHURCH in the village of Rolacala with 30 men, 27 women, 35 teenagers, and 70 children attending. This is a real breakthrough as many of the men and teenage boys have been absent from their families due to the opening of a small gold digging project in this District Seems the jobs played out, so many are returning to their home villages.
Pastor Alberto stated that a FEMALE WITCHDOCTOR has accepted JESUS, PTL! This ex-Witch Doctor will be BURNING her “witch hut” this weekend. This is a BIG THING in these villages and brings many to Christ who once followed her divination to Satan.
BAWANA GAMES NOW REACHING FOR A HIGHER GOAL!
Our 11 Remote Balama Pastors reported 52 NEW ADULT/ TEENAGE CONVERTS in last 60 days. PTL! BAWANA GAMES attendance led by these same 11 Pastors was 4,623 CHILDREN per WEEK in 32 locations! BBC BAWANA GAMES ATTENDANCE: 16,943 per WEEK!
WE HAVE NOW EXCEEDED OUR 2018 GOAL OF REACHING 20,000 CHILDREN per WEEK FOR JESUS!!! IN THESE LAST DAYS THE HUNGER FOR JESUS IS GROWING. IT IS THE CHILDREN WHO ARE LEADING THEM, FOR THEY ARE THE GOOD GROUND TALKED ABOUT IN THE BIBLE.

FOOD DISTRIBUTIONS NOW POSSIBLE IN REMOTE KWE KWE AREA
The rainy season did some serious damage to the main road to Kwe Kwe/Tiwany area where 500 orphans live. Our trucks could not travel it heavily loaded without risking major damage. Broken trucks mean our whole food distribution program would come to a halt, so we could not risk it in Sept. Road repairs are ongoing, but it looks like it will be November before the road will be open to heavy trucks.
JESUS SHOWS US THE WAY
Manuel, our Head Driver, scouted a back road this week and found an “out of the way” alternative route our trucks can safely travel to these children. NO MATTER THE DISTANCE, our 2 trucks will roll out this week with over 10 TONS of corn and beans to bring life-saving food to these children.
PLEASE KEEP US IN PRAYER AS OUR FOOD TEAMS TRAVEL THIS SELDOM USED PATH THIS WEEK.
Why use your hands when you can carry your soap on top of your head?
BUSH BUNNY TIDBITS:
1. Both new babies in our care are gaining weight after 10 days with us.
2. Tiny, premature Victoria SET A NEW RECORD by gaining 1 kg (2.2 lbs.) in 10 days. Victoria is now 6.6 lbs. (3kg) and showing AMAZING progress. Just shows all of us what a baby is capable of if given proper feedings.
3. Food was delivered this last week to the Elephant Village kids who are all look very healthy. Keep them in prayer, for the elephants and baboons in their area are hungry, putting anyone with corn at high risk.
4. BAWANA GAMES MOTORBIKE TEAMS will be expanding to 2 new areas this month.
TOGETHER, WE ARE WINNING THE MULTITUDES FOR CHRIST!
BLESSINGS IN CHRIST,
