continued from page 1 is gearing up to develop resource that will benefit nations in East Africa with Swahili, and India with Hindi. These evangelism materials would not be possible without LFTL and your faithful giving! Projects like these have far reaching impact, but on a micro level they change lives and build churches. I recently met a boy while in Malawi. His name is Chimwemwe. His parents abandoned him on the streets of Lilongwe because they could not afford their drugs and his food. So, they chose the former. He was recruited by a gang and drifted in and out of a group home for homeless boys. One of the employees at the group home was a Royal Rangers leader who took a special interest in Chimwemwe. Over a two-year period, and after placing her job and reputation on the line, led

him to the Lord. He eventually joined the outpost. The allure of the streets drew him in and out of Royal Rangers and the group home, but eventually he fully committed his ways to the Lord. A family in the church later adopted him. He is now a student in the Malawi Assemblies of God University, a respected and well-liked youth leader in the church, and a very big proponent of Royal Rangers. He’s fully alive in Christ and exhibits an amazing spirit. Aside from the scars on his body, you would never suspect he had such a rough upbringing. A Malawian Royal Rangers leader equipped with LFTL-funded resources made all the difference. Thank you again for all that you do. Doug Marsh AGWM missionary Director of Royal Rangers International

elow is a message from a man that received the MIP (Men in Progress) magazines. Thank you Light for the Lost for helping us print and distribute this vital resource! I'm working at Geullah Christian Retreat House (faith based drug rehab center). I want to thank Asia Pacific Media for the latest issue of MIP. I got copies from my pastor. It's a big encouragement for our patients not to give up on

life and that God will move in their life. Especially when they read the story of Paul Esguerra and Dino Gonzales. Thank you again; may God bless your ministry.
