Here is a teaser from Steve and Glenda Kvale’s quarterly newsletter: Kvale Connection.
This quarter’s prayer letter is opened with a word of praise to God who moves mountains. As you prayed with us concerning Steve’s computer project when our last letter was printed, we knew God was at work through the sleepless nights, extra hours of work on the project and the unity that grew in the team as communication increased to the benefit of the project. We needed to practice patience, understanding and cooperation to persevere in a project that seemed to be bombarded by the enemy with roadblocks. Victory is His as we persevere in trials. Steve felt stretched in this project for the Kingdom. We can say that through times like this, more equipping takes place to be even more effective for Him. Though we wish we could say the project was completed, it’s an even bigger answer to prayer at this point to say that the mountainous roadblocks to completing this project have been removed! For this we praise God above! This project is in a vital restructuring mode with the team in Dallas, TX, for the time being.
Dear friends and prayer partners,
Twenty-one years ago, Dorothy began praying for an unreached people group in West Africa through the Bibleless Peoples Prayer Project (BPPP). During what seemed like years of silence from God, she persevered. In 1993, one man (we call Dalmar) from the people group accepted Christ. He began working with Wycliffe Bible translators. His cousin accepted Christ and soon two more members of the community became believers. In August 2010, twenty-one years after Dorothy began praying, the complete book of Genesis has been distributed. After reading it, a man who used to persecute Dalmar for his faith has come to recognize the truth of God’s Word. Through twenty-one years of prayer, Dalmars neighbors are finally reading the Scriptures-words that are introducing them to their Savior.
You play a key role as you pray for us in support roles for the Lord with Wycliffe Bible Translators and for Bibleless peoples of the world. Thank you for your prayers and financial gifts as together we work to reach the least, the last, and the lost with God’s Word.
Serving Him with you,
Steve & Glenda Kvale Family
