Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

James 1:17


I pray this letter finds you well. Have you ever had your prayer answered so perfectly, yet perhaps differently from what you had expected?  Indeed He is the most excellent gift giver and His gifts are not mere random blessings or coincidences; rather, they are intentional and purposeful acts of love from a God who knows us intimately. But there is a condition, outlined later in the same chapter 1 of the book of James, without which we often fail to recognize these perfect gifts or forget to be grateful for them. This condition implies that we must know God’s word and do what it tells us to do, because without this we don’t know who God is and who we are in Him. This is why the Great Commission is like a perfect gift that is given to us to experience His blessing while blessing others. Whether you are reading the report on the move of God in Moldova in May or feel the stirring in your heart to support a mission outreach in Bosnia in September, or a tug to join the pre-Christmas mission trip to Mexico, you will be actively participating in what the Word tells us to do – to go into the world, make disciples, show kindness, express love, help the needy, heal the sick, and so on. What an incredible privilege to be partners with Jesus in building His new Kingdom! Thank you for partnering with us in praying, going and giving – together we are bringing healing and hope to those who need it most!

With warm regards,

Chuck and Helen

The goal of the mission in Moldova in May was to establish and strengthen our partnership with Victory Church in Chisinau while providing spiritual support and assistance to the local community and the refugees from Ukraine who fled to Moldova from the Russia-Ukraine war. Our team was inspired by the incredible zeal for Christ displayed by Victory Church and its members. Partnering with them in street evangelism, intercession, medical clinics, and children’s camp brought wonderful fruit. We were thrilled to witness many salvations during the trip, including kids in the children’s camp hosted by our team, and a homeless man who got saved during street evangelism.

The church provides shelter for some of the Ukrainian refugee families. Every Thursday they host a large food distribution event for anyone who is struggling. Many refugee families from across Moldova come to these Thursday meeting to pick up big bags filled with groceries and other supplies to last them a week. WMA sponsored the distribution for that week. We heard the testimonies of the refugees who came to pick up food but found something much greater – Jesus and His hope. Our team presented the Gospel message to the ones who came and spent time praying for their individual needs afterwards.

A drug and alcohol rehabilitation center founded by Victory Church was another important focus of the mission. Housed in a 100-year-old farmhouse with no indoor plumbing, this center embraced Jesus as the Healer and Breaker of Chains, focusing on restoring spiritually men struggling with addictions. One of the team members shared her personal testimony of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Her inspiring journey resonated deeply with the men at the center. The leader of the center shared with us the success stories of the people who had been deemed hopeless by society but found a new life in Jesus through the program. 

During the clinic our team hosted for those who have limited access to medical care, we encountered a patient who was desperately seeking hope, love, and deliverance from his circumstances. Our prayer team interceded for his deliverance. Through the power of Jesus, this person experienced liberation from the chains of anxiety, depression, and homosexuality.

A three-day children’s camp aimed to introduce the Gospel, share Bible stories, and guide the children towards a personal relationship with Christ. The camp proved to be a remarkable success, and nine children made a heartfelt commitment to follow Jesus. We planted seeds of faith and hope in their young hearts.

Our mission in Moldova is ongoing. If you have a heart for the Moldovan people and Ukrainian refugee outreach, please consider sponsoring the food distribution program. A donation of $30 provides one food bag with a week’s supply of groceries.

WMA will be traveling to the Muslim country of Bosnia to share Christ and work among the underprivileged communities. There are three groups that have been known to be especially vulnerable – the Roma people who historically are separated from the indigenous society and lack education, access to health care and permanent income, the Bosnians who live in the rural, economically undeveloped communities with the high rate of illiteracy, lack of healthcare and infrastructure and the children, whose families are unable to care for them due to extreme poverty, substance abuse or other issues.  You can help sponsor one of these outreaches by helping us by medications for the clinics, supplies and food for the kids and Bibles for distribution.

Every year, between December 1 and 12, tens of thousands of people in Mexico make a pilgrimage by foot to the cathedral of Virgin Mary of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Along the way, they sing songs in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and some perform pre-Hispanic dances. This fusion of cultures and traditions reflects the spiritual climate of Mexico today. This December 4-11, WMA will return to Mexico to bring the true spirit of Christmas and the Good News of salvation to Pachuca, Mexico.

Our vision is to bring hope to the country that is overwhelmed by drug wars, political confusion, economic challenges, and moral issues that are destroying the children and the youth. You are invited to help the Mexican people be saved by the power of Christ, show love to the rejected, encourage believers and witness the transformation of communities and individuals through Jesus. You are invited to join WMA mission to Pachuca, Mexico on December 4-11. We still have a few spots open on this team.

Pachuca is the capital city of the state of Hidalgo, about a 2-and-a-half-hour drive from Mexico City. Our team will partner with a local church to carry out evangelistic outreaches in public places by sharing testimonies, giving out Bibles and Gospel tracts and hosting a free medical clinic for those who can’t afford it. We will also host a special mission in the Garbage City for the people who collect and process the garbage.

Our missions there in March and July were so successful that the leaders asked us to come back in December. They told us that nobody has ever shown any kindness or respect to the garbage collectors. The people were deeply moved by the outreach, and many received Jesus into their hearts. We will do the follow up work in their village with the plan of planting a church in the future. Let us know if you are interested in joining this team – we need doctors and nurses, evangelists, teachers, youth and children’s workers, women’s ministry workers and intercessors.
