Dear Prayer Partners,

Psalm 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God." Psalm 24:1 "The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein."

Psalm 14:1 "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."

 Enough said!

January 15 was Gilgandra Baptist Fellowship's Kid's Club held at the Country Women's Hall, Gilgandra. We had twelve children attend the first club for which we praise the Lord! The temperature was well over 100 degrees and the children drank over 14 liers of cordial. IT WAS HOT! The building did not have air-conditioning but did have ceiling fans in one section, which was good. This kid's club day opened the door to homes to which we had no entry earlier. Most of the children come from unchurched homes and many are aboriginal. The day after the club David sent a letter to the homes thanking the parents for sending their children to the club and enclosed an Eternity tract. Pray the Lord will use this outreach to bring some to a saving knowledge of Christ as their Saviour. We are planning another club this winter. We were glad Phyllis Morgan helped even though the doctor had told her that morning her mother could pass away at anytime. She was a tremendous help.

Last year (2000) David reported to one-half of our supporting churches. We are now planning to report to the other half February 27 - April 10, 2002. PLEASE TAKE NOTE THIS MINI-FURLOUGH IS IN 2002!

We know most churches would desire a Sunday meeting but time is the mini-furlough master.

Please remember to pray for the following.

1. Olga Nadan (Phyllis Morgan's mother) passed away 21 January in the Gilgandra hospital. Mrs. Nadan was an aboriginal believer whose husband was pastor of the Australian Indigenous Mission church in Gilgandra until his death two years ago. Olga would have been 80 this September and was a special lady who deeply loved the Lord. David had the privilege of preaching the graveside committal service. There were over 500 people in attendance.

2. In January we began a Bible study with Andy and Ellen Thompson. Andy had open-heart surgery 22 January and at this writing is recovering in Sydney. Now that Andy has had the surgery pray they will begin to attend the Sunday service when they return to Dubbo from Sydney. They both profess to know the Lord with their church background varying from Pentecostal to Presbyterian.

3. Even though the 2002 mini-furlough is a year away begin asking God to give us His preacher for the time we are gone. At the present we do not have a great number attending either fellowship but those folk God has given us need a preacher of the Word in our absence.

4. Pray the finances for the 2002 mini-furlough will be available as we approach our departure in February 2002. Furlough has many costs, which includes return airline tickets, rental car, petrol, meals and lodging between churches. We praise the Lord that His people have always been generous and we have never yet been in the red.

5. Pastor and Mrs. Van Kleeck are planning a trip to Australia sometime in October this year. Pastor Van Kleeck is our new pastor at Evangel since the retirement of Pastor Keep.

6. Jonathan (our third child and eldest son) and Lynne Mercer's wedding will be 15 September 2001. They are an encouragement in their faithfulness to the fellowship meetings.

7. Becky, our second child and youngest daughter, is due 10 June with her third child. She and her family live in Acworth, GA a suburb of Atlanta.

8. We have submitted the forms for the re-application of Ross and Carolyn Trumbles visas to government immigration. There shouldn't be any problem but one never knows for sure. They will finish their first two years in Australia in April. The Lord has been good and given them a small group of people to begin a fellowship in Parkes, NSW.

If you would like to receive our prayer letter via email please send us your email address and we will put you on the list. Computers are so much fun! David had to run recovery disk last month to help clean up the hard drive and re-entering everything was a real joy! This is all said with a taste of sarcasm of course. The computer is operating faster now and without so many cliches, for which we are thankful.

In closing we would once again like to thank each of you for your part in helping us live and serve the Lord in Australia. As we view the world situation we are reminded in the Word of God to look "for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ." Maranatha!

Your Missionaries,

David and Pam Bennett
