Obeying God's Command

April 15, 2010
Missionary Families to the Philippines and Ukraine

We have received thousands of testimonies of salvation from all over the world in regard to Good and Evil—now in over 25 languages. It is effective for two reasons. First, it’s readily received and read without the prejudice that Christian literature sometimes generates. It goes where Bibles and even missionaries are not allowed, and it goes in the native language of the people.

Secondly, it teaches as God chose to teach: through stories of God’s working among men. This chronologically told Bible story book is not a Bible, but it is a Bible-story-telling missionary that will never grow weary and leave the field, will not be distracted with sick kids, will not pause to eat, will never get malaria or dengue fever, does not have to pay rent, can live in a village undetected, can go to a country closed to the gospel, is willing to work day and night, and gives a clear and accurate message again and again for years to come. If a hostile government destroys the book, it can be replaced for about three dollars. It will never say, I can’t go, Lord, I don’t know the language, it would cost too much, my family could not hold up, I don’t have a gift for speaking. Good and Evil is always willing and waiting to go, and it is very capable. It is the perfect missionary.

Always Available

“And the gospel must first be published among all nations” (Mark 13:10)

This June a missionary named Steve Schnell (and family) will be coming home for a long break after many years of service in Cambodia. He would desperately love to leave another 10,000 “published missionaries” behind, but he needs the funds to print these books. Will you help him provide 10,000 published missionaries to the needy country of Cambodia? Time is running out.

A Willing Heart

“And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward” (Matthew 10:42)

Rick Batson is another missionary sent out by The Church at Cane Creek and supported by No Greater Joy Ministries. Americans are welcomed and well-received in the Philippines, so Rick has endless opportunities to present the gospel to large groups of up to 8,000 at a time. He has had amazing success in the public schools, utilizing gospel films and literature very effectively. Starting this June he will be going into 62 high schools in the Philippines. He takes along Filipino pastors to assist him and to preach in the local dialects. Many of the high schools have thousands of students; a good percentage of those students are Muslim. It is Rick’s hope and prayer to be able to give interested students a DVD containing four other gospel films. He is praying that he will have the money to give 200 DVDs away at each school. The DVDs would cost him 38 cents each if he hand-makes them one at a time. He would also love to have at least 50 Good and Evil books at each school. Rick says that because there is so little Christian literature in the Cebuano language, every DVD he gives out gets watched by many, and the Good and Evil books always get passed around and read by scores. Would you like to give a cup of water in this missionary’s name?


“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15)

There is another missionary we have followed since he was 13 years old. When he first contacted us we gave him the answer found on page 21 called Witnessing. Joshua stayed focused. He studied, learned to play the guitar, did street preaching, witnessed, took mission trips, and by the age of 22 he was a full-time missionary learning to speak the Ukrainian language. This summer he is again providing opportunity for young men who are at least 18 years old (and younger men are welcome with their fathers) to come for a few weeks or the whole summer to be a part of an outreach to the Ukrainian people. It is a chance to see missions firsthand, to worship God with new believers, and to see God do miracles. If you go you will never be the same. Dad, this is your moment to step up and make the sacrifice for your son, to take him on a mission trip that will so grow him in God’s wisdom that only eternity will reveal the fullness. Young man, this is your opportunity to set your course on the eternal. If you lack the funds, pray and ask God to provide. Tell your grandparents of your desire to be a part of this mission; tell your pastor; tell your homeschool friends; maybe they will have a car wash to raise your support. But if you think this is what God would have you do, then march forward and join Joshua as he goes to claim the land!

Standing in the Gap

“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land…” (Ezekiel 22:30)

Will you and your children pray for us here at No Greater Joy and for our co-workers in Thailand who are endeavoring to get the gospel into as many languages as possible? We need to know you are praying. The Devil stays busy trying to derail us, by any means he can to slow us down. As you pray for us keep in mind the story of Daniel as he prayed asking God for an answer which took 21 days to come, due to a battle in the atmosphere above the earth between the righteous and the fallen angels (Daniel 10). Why should Daniel have to ask for deliverance? God knew what he needed. Why should Daniel have to wait on an angel who is in a battle with a legion of devils? God could have stepped in. But God chose to dish out his blessing and deliverance only in response to our prayers. He also chooses to send his answers through the medium of angels, who are subject to the resistance of evil angels. You and I must pray. Angels are sent to minister for us. As we pray, they succeed. Our prayers are answered in accordance with our prayers and faith. Fantastic! You are the supply line. We need you to be faithful to pray for us. Teach your children to pray for us. Listen to Mike’s message on CD,  Authority Praying.

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer” (I Peter 4:7)
