to visit and encourage those working with the follow-up program. While
there, he speaks in a number of different places. He also provides

language Bibles for $3.00 each and song books for many individuals and
congregations. He also purchases bicycles for $75.00 each and sewing

preachers to use as they travel from village to village sharing the Good
News with others. The sewing machines are given to widows who have no other
means of supporting themselves or their families.
