Encompass World Partners News


Today the Pastors of GBC of The two districts of Bangui I and II in the Central African Republic  met to discuss about the national Pastors conference that will take place in Bangui from November 11-14, 2014. During the meeting Pastor Ngoumape and I had the opportunity to present the history of this initiative and the draft was given to the pastors to read and prepare their questions for the November conference. It was well received and we hope that they will appreciate the progressive spirit we have in dealing with our heritage based on a true understanding of the Bible and our context today.

The picture attached is of the Pastors who were introduced to the Common identity initiative today.

Japanese Ministry Prayer Meeting

Monday, 15 September 2014 18:16

Leaders of the Japanese returnee ministry in Greater Los Angeles met on Saturday, September 13 in Long Beach, CA to plan for the next year.

After breakfast, they met via Skype with ministry partners, Kuni Sano, in his coffee shop in Tokyo, Japan, along with Julio and Joanne Marín, and their children, Julian and Juni. The Marín family plans to relocate soon from Florida to Southern California to work with the ministry.

Phil Helfer, pastor of the Los Altos Grace Brethren Church, Long Beach, encouraged the group to keep planting seeds, noting that God is at work in Japan. “God is obviously wanting to do something here,” he said. “Maybe it is part of the bigger plan of God doing something there.”


Dick Conover to have bypass surgery

Thursday, 11 September 2014 19:08

Please pray for Dick Conover, our Winona Lake Ministry Partner who has been faithfully archiving photos and slides for Encompass for over 10 years.  He has a history of heart related health issues and found out earlier this week that one of the main arteries to his heart is 100% blocked. He will be having bypass surgery (up to 5 bypasses) as soon as they can clear all the blood thinners out of his system. He has to remain hospitalized before the surgery to be continually monitored.

Please pray for Dick, his wife Betty, daughters Tammie and Terry and all their family members.

CORE Training is in full gear here at Encompass. The group has been learning many things about the ministry, vision, and history of Encompass World Partners. We've enjoyed digging into scripture to understand God's plan of salvation for The Nations and how deeply He cares for each people group. Being in Atlanta, we've been able to sample some of the great food from many different places around the world. Check out this picture of our group eating at the Chinatown Food Court!
