Caught in Between

Dear Support Team,

I really sensed your prayers as I kept up a very busy speaking schedule after being away in Africa. Praise God we saw Him helping mightily by providing stamina, care at home, messages that helped many and a measure of fluency when speaking in Chinese. The parenting classes are being well-received. Four classes to go.


One of the ways we serve our brothers and sisters overseas is to provide training material. We take printed material to them when we go, but the audio/video recordings of the seminar have a far greater impact after I have returned. They can go where I cannot.

I thought I would only need to edit two seminars' worth of audio/video, but at the very last minute I discovered that a third Kenyan language was used: Luo (place of President Obama's family). So this added about 18 audios (60+ minutes long) to edit.

BFF is excited to offer different language resources, but I am often praying for the Lord's provision of help to edit. Many of the pastors are now using the materials to train their congregations. The seminar materials would be of great assistance to them.

Please pray that God would provide someone to edit these materials to make them available to those overseas. The learning curve is not very high if one is familiar with word processing.

I know my key focus is on the development of new training materials and instruction.

In Preparation

Please pray as I prepare for the fall trip. Some people are surprised to learn that I probably will not go to India this year. I go where God leads me. I would be very glad to go to India and have many groups inviting me. The Lord, however, has prompted me to respond to three requests in Myanmar (formerly Burma). The three groups have requested training at the same time so there is insufficient time to visit India (at least that's the way it looks right now).

Do pray as I apply for a visa. This has been a closed country and might be reluctant to give me a visa. Those inviting me do not seem to have any concerns. I am also praying for someone to team up with me.



Many thanks for your prayers and support,


Rev. Paul J. Bucknell, President and Instructor
