The strong currents from Rivers of Grace carried across land and sea

Current

Full Speed Ahead

Before Jesus became the Lord and Master of my life in 1971, I was quite pessimistic about the future. I was sure the world would self destruct. I had 7 reasons we would all be gone by the year 2000.

Here we are in 2017! I am more optimistic than ever! Our theme this month is “Fill your tank, start your engine, and floor it”.  My optimism is not based on economic forecasts or political prospects.  It is based on knowing the heart of a loving God who is still in the saving business. Jesus is still healing the broken hearted. His grace is enabling people to overcome their addictions. Families are being reconciled, hungry people being clothed and fed, and new generations of young people committing their lives to serving others as they serve Jesus.

The biggest problem in mission is not doors closing, but people who have the faith to go through the doors that are open!  The harvest fields of the world are ripe, but the laborers are few.

We have been blessed this last year with many opportunities to serve the Lord overseas and here in America. We thank all those who have supported us in pray and finances to accomplish the things God has put on our hearts and the doors he has opened for the Gospel. We welcome those who would like to partner with us again this year.

Perhaps you are interested in supporting the the work based on the country we are ministering in, or the particular projects and people that we are working with or maybe you just like us and what we are doing and want to be part of building the kingdom of God. We welcome all. Just contact us through the website, email or personal phone call. We would love to hear from you.

May you have a great year in 2017. Don’t miss an opportunity to do your best for God’s glory,

Dennis and Diane Teague

Upcoming Mission

Headed to Philippines, Honk Kong and China, Fall 2016

Several people have asked me lately, “How can you keep  going on these mission trips?” 2 Cor. 5:13-15 If we are ‘out of our minds’, it is for God…the love of God compels us. Although we address issues related to global concerns, elections, economics and fearful circumstances, our main focus is building the Kingdom of God. We will complete our personal marathon looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of the race. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
Daily devotions, a cup of coffee, and a hand full of vitamins and away we go!  

Dennis and Diane Return From Mongolia

Dear Friends,

Thank you for praying for a miracle for Denise Loreto , one of the high school students we support in the Philippines. She had an episode recently that was diagnosed as a heart murmur and told she should not participate in PE or sports.

 Wrestle with us in prayer for the property dispute in the village on the outskirts of Zamboanga city. We started the church 30 yrs ago and the local believers have kept it going and prospered there. 

China Beckons Diane and I are part of a team that went to China June 18-26. We were involved in training on-fire believers from inner Mongolia.

After 18 yrs of work a revised translation of the Tibetan New Testament is just out. Any donkeys for Jesus want to saddle up?
