Proclaiming the Gospel with Gospel-Link

bro samuel

Our family has been blessed by the National Pastors we support through Gospelink and are so thankful that God would use our little family in such a big way!  We found this organization a few years ago through another family and we knew it was for us!  God has blessed our family financially and we love giving as much of it to the Lords work as we possibly can.  We were so glad to be able to increase our giving this year. Last year Bro. Samuel came from Malawi, Africa to speak to our church and since then Tyler Baptist and our family has sent 1,000′s of tracts to Africa. To God be the glory!

These are some pictures that Bro. Samuel has sent us over the last few months.  Here his family are handing out tracts in an open market.  In other countries these pastors are invited to the schools to share the gospel and the children love receiving the tracts we send.  They carry them home and whole families are saved.  Its so sad that the words of God is not welcomed in our “In God We Trust” government schools.

Happy faces to receive just a few scriptures in their native language.

The picture below is of a Muslim witch doctor who by God’s grace was saved after reading one of these tracts!  Praise God!

Please check out Gospelinks National Pastor Program and pray about what the Lord would have your family or church do!

 

What is a national pastor?

A national pastor is a born-again Christian serving in his own native area. He doesn’t have to learn the language since he already knows it. He knows the culture and has a hearing among his people. What has amazed us is that a national pastor can live on a hundred dollars or so a month versus the cost of thousands and thousands of dollars to send a western missionary to that same mission field. It has been a blessing for our family to find this ministry! You can find out more at Gospelinks website, or even watch a short video.

 

How much does it cost?

Gospelink sponsorships are divided into five parts––you can sponsor a pastor for $15 a month, or, you can do all five parts for a total of $145. Each pastor needs:

  • 3 ministry sponsorships ($35 each)
  • 1 outreach sponsorship ($25)
  • 1 training sponsorship ($15)

May I write my National Pastor?

Gospelink allows you to correspond with your preacher. You may write to him once a quarter, and you’ll also receive a several-page report from your pastor each quarter. The report includes details of his ministry and information about his personal life and family.

Will I get a photo of my National Pastor?

Yes! Gospelink gives you prayermarks with your pastor’s picture and name on it, and several pictures of him and his family. We have ours on our refrigerator, and we have made a book for the kids to look through. We have put the pastors letters in there as well and have included maps and interesting facts about the pastors, their families, and the regions in which they minister.

Visitor From Malawi

This weekend we were pleased to host national pastor Bro. Samuel Vinkhumbo from Malawi, Africa, and representative of GospelLink Dean Kershner and his son.  We had a great time learning more about GospelLink and about Bro. Sameul’s family, church and culture.  They were a real blessing to invite into our home.  We ate pork BBQ, baked beans, slaw, potato salad, and chocolate pie.  Bro. Samuel had never had any thing like it and he really enjoyed pork and the pie.  We are so blessed in America to have meat nearly every meal.  In Samuel’s country, before he was sponsored by GospelLink, his children would often skip meals.  Now they are blessed to get meat about once a month, and have never had to miss a meal. We really enjoyed hearing all the stories about “the bush” in Africa, and what GospelLink is doing all over the world.  Bro. Samuel was a blessing to us!  One day maybe we can visit his family in Africa, if we never get that chance, we know we will see each other in heaven!  What a day that will be!  The kids had a great time playing with Deans boy, and we hope to be able to host their family again, at least annually!  Sunday during Sunday School, Dean shared with the church about his life, his work in Russia, and his work with GospelLink.  Every one was intrigued with his stories and his little boys Scripture memory.  After Assembly Don introduced Bro. Samuel.  Bro. Samuel shared a testimony and then preached a wonderful message.  He preached about God knowing us in the womb, and having an assignment for us, even before we were born, then he touched on the Great Commission, and gave warning about excuses.  He encouraged us to widen our vision, to not be so self-centered and to remember our Brothers and Sisters on the other side of the world.  We were blessed, again!  After the sermon we had a fellowship and got to hear many more wonderful stories!

Our family is blessed to support in part 7 National pastors… 2 in Ethiopia, 1 in the Congo, 1 in Ukraine, and 3 in Russia.  We also sent 1000 Chick tracts in the Chichewa Language to Bro. Samuel.  We plan on doing this regularly, If you would like to send tracts, please let us know and we will give you Bro. Samuel’s contact information.  He is in great need of tracts and Bibles.  He is currently over 125 churches in Malawi, so he can distribute many!

We encourage anyone who can give as little as $15 to $35 a month to give to National Pastors through GospelLink!
