MARCH 2003

Dear Friends in Christ,

Col 1:2 "To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ... Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."

How we thank the Lord for His saints and faithful brethren in Christ such as you! Your prayers and financial gifts make it possible for us to live and serve in this spiritually needy land. Our desire is someday to have a group gathered as a local New Testament church to "praise the LORD for his goodness." Psalm 107:31. With the prospect of war, present drought, never ending corruption in high places etc. one would think hearts would be softer and yet hearts are not softened but rather hardened. Perhaps "This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened." Exodus 8:19. Incredible! As Jonathan Edwards said "The unregenerate man loves sin. Sin is his delight. He hides sin as a sweet morsel under his tongue. Sin hangs like a viper to the heart!" But praise be to God Who can and will break the hardest of hearts and convict of "sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment."

Before we get too far into the letter some have asked about Davidís ant bite. It was better about five days later with the itching and swelling going away. THANK YOU for caring!

The Aussie dollar continues to rise and so do prices of just about everything just like in the states. Petrol or gasoline as it is called in the states is at $4.55 a gallon and the price of meat they say will be going up dramatically if the drought isnít broken soon. We heard the other day on the agriculture news that many stockmen will need to sell their cattle as feed is getting too expensive. If most of the herds are sold for meat consumption now when the drought is broken herds will be down in number and it will be sometime before beef is available at a reasonable price, whatever that might be by then. We did receive some much needed rain February 20, 21. It didnít break the drought but has helped.

We continue to seek in getting the gospel out for "if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost." 2Corinthians 4:3. In February David was having the tyres rotated and front aligned of our vehicle when the young proprietor (Tony) said he and his wife had just had a baby and named her Hannah. David told him that was a good Bible name of which Tony was not aware. Tony showed some interest in Hannah being a Bible name so the next day David took a Defined King James Childrenís Bible by Tonyís place of business and presented it to him. He was quite surprised and very grateful. David marked where Hannahís name was found in the Scriptures and related a little about Hannah to Tony. Pray this may be the beginning of the Lordís working with Tony and his wife.

In Australia we can distribute literature in mail boxes which we seek to take advantage of. One day as David was distributing the 2003 gospel calendars in letter boxes in Avian Estate he was putting the calendar into a letter box when the gentleman of the house (Edward) came out. Edward began the conversation which is unusual and in the conversation said he was a Mormon. He and his wife grew up as Roman Catholics in the Philippines but left it to attend what he called an Evangelical Church. When they came to Australia they lived in Melbourne and became Mormons. David talked with Edward for awhile and Edward said if David had a Bible study to just leave it in the letter box if no one was home. This David did not long ago. He left Spurgeonís book ALL OF GRACE with a study guide that includes questions and verses to go along with each chapter of the book. David also left a Bible in case they did not have one. Pray for the Yaps that God will use Spurgeonís ALL OF GRACE along with the many Scripture verses used to bring this couple to Himself. 1Peter 1:23 "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."

Many of you may remember Mark who we have mentioned several times before. David has been by to see Mark a couple of times recently but each time someone else has been present so David was never really able to talk openly with him at the time. Mark did tell David he is now involved in something really spiritual but it isnít Christianity. David went by to see Mark to give him some literature the next to the last week of February but again he was busy with a sales representative. It was interesting a few weeks ago David had been given a script from the medical doctor to have some blood tests taken for cholesterol etc. at the medical centre. When David was asked by the nurse to come into the room he went in and sat down as instructed. She asked David if he knew who she was. David had not a clue. She was Markís wife. David had not seen her for quite sometime but after she told him who she was he recognized her. Well, while taking the blood she also related Markís leaving her and the two children who undoubtedly are greatly affected by all this. She had converted to Catholicism for Mark which David thought was the other way around. David mentioned Mark said something about spirituality and she confirmed he was getting deeply involved in this. Well, the last Tuesday of February David was able to make contact with Mark and give him a marked edition (salvation verses are underlined) of the gospel of John and Romans. David asked him to read the underlined verses and he said he would. Please pray for the Lordís opening avenues to witness more to Mark and Le Ann.

May God bless as you and we sow the gospel seed and wait for His harvest!

Isaiah 55:8 - 11 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

Ezekiel 34:26 "And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing."

1Corinthians 3:7, 8 "So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour."

Thank you again for your prayers and financial gifts and "To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen." Romans 16: 27.

Your friends in Christ,

David and Pam Bennett
