Dear Friends and Family,Don praying 4 teens in UK

It was a unique way for Don to celebrate his birthday - ministering most of the day with 25 others in the inner-city of Truro, England. Open-air meetings were held with drama, testimonies and music, including Don's trumpet. While this was going on, literature was handed out and friendship evangelism took place on the streets and in the Coffee Bar at the sponsoring church nearby. Often conversations would end with prayer for special needs.

Some British people express distain or humor when Christian activity happens outside the doors of the traditional church. Even police would only cooperate reluctantly. But that day, 12 people accepted Christ as their Savior, many received prayer, and hundreds heard the Gospel. What a great way to celebrate a birthday!

 This was just one of many outreaches in 25 towns that were part of  "Love Cornwall" - a county located at the SW corner of England. The initiative was a united evangelistic effort of many churches and denominations. Over 100 members of ministry teams outside of Cornwall, like ours, joined with local believers.

As a result, more than 10,000 people were reached in 70 different programs. Half of those were youth and children who attended school presentations. There were many church-based activities and other outreach events including: free Barbecues where 3,500 burgers were served, free "cream tea" events, and a final Youth Extravaganza under a big-top tent. At each venue the Gospel was presented, often using contemporary music and creative drama and mime.

Churches have been encouraged &motivated - and believers are becoming mobilized to reach their communities with God's love. Pray that this flame and heart for evangelism will spread across England!

During the rest of our trip we were engaged in church and Bible College ministry. In Wales, there were two services at a church in Bangor who has faithfully supported us for many years. In Belgium, we were there to mainly bless the 120 students at Continental College & Seminary in Brussels. Don spoke at their chapel service, taught two classes on Missions and we gave input into the lives of several students. Another program was with the youth of Christian Center in Waterloo. A very special treat was our time with Don's sister, Peggy, and husband who live at the school. Ken is the Campus Pastor at Continental and Peg heads up Hospitality.

We thank the Lord for His strength and provision - allowing us to be His servants to reach others. Don is preparing to fly off to the Philippines on November 11th for another three weeks. He speaks several times at a Church Leadership conference in northern Luzon, followed by open-air crusades, prisons, school assemblies - and some Bible School teaching.

Our hearts are grateful for your friendship and prayerful support that make all of the above possible.
