Here are ten church planters that The Compass supports. They represent over fifty converts to Christ in less than a year!
My youngest student!
One of the church planters whom The Compass supports passed away recently. He had gone to a remote area and started a church. Today we commissioned a young lady who has been asked to take over. She is 25 and full of faith. There are over a dozen new converts in that church and it is growing. Here is a picture of the commissioning. Please pray for her.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers...

Please pray for three of us who are entering a country I cannot name to meet with a large group of “special people.” We just learned that such “opportunities” have been banned for the next several weeks. We will need cover and are relying on you for that!

They heard of the pastor, he...
Arrived in Pokhara, Nepal. I start training fifty church planters, leaders and pastors tomorrow. Check out the pictures. The little girl behind me kept rubbing my head until her mom made her stop. Did she think I was a Buddha? Speaking of Buddha, guess the name of my airline. Blessings to you and thanks for funding fifty Christian leaders to receive training and encouragement! Pastor Dale
On to Nepal...
I am in Bangkok on my way to Nepal where I will be training our church planting partners, as well as exploring some new opportunities in the tiny country of Bhutan. Please take some time this weekend to stop outside our “purple wall” and pray for all our mission partners. I will try to update you with information and pictures if there is Internet.
