As missionaries to the Kuna Indians in Panama, Dave and Nancy Mankins were living their dream. After seven years of learning the culture and ministering among the Kuna, they had found a home in this small village.
Then, in one terrifying moment, their dream was shattered.
On January 31, 1993, Colombian rebels burst into their home and captured Dave, along with fellow missionaries Mark Rich and Rick Tenenoff. Helplessly, their wives watched in horror as the three men were seized at gunpoint and taken into the Colombian jungles.
Join us Saturday at 3:30 on “A Place Missionaries Call Home” as Nancy tells us her story.
You can order the book “Hostage” from Nancy Mankins Hamm at NancyMankinsHamm@cfl.rr.com.
These days we hear on a regular basis, “You need to be flexible. Quit stressing! Take a step back. Go with the flow.” Do any of these phrases sound familiar? Well I must say if I am totally honest, it is difficult to be flexible or to go with the flow. I was raised in a military family, as many of you know, and my dad would always plan and do things orderly. The Bible tells us to “seek ye first the kingdom of God.” Jesus told us to “go ye into all the world and preach the gospel.” He had an urgency about His calling, to the point of being weary. But what happens when your circumstances are beyond your control?
This Saturday at 3:30 on “A Place Missionaries Call Home,” Joyce and I will be talking with John and Carol Pierce, missionaries with New Tribes Mission from their headquarters in Sanford, Fl. Many missionaries are now transitioning to ministry state side. John and Carol will share with us how God can still use you even when your life changes because of aging parents. A program you will not want to miss. We are all transitioning in one way or another.
Larry George, President
Many times when I speak to people, I express my desire to walk as closely to the Lord as possible. I do try to apply Eph.6:18 at all times. “Praying always with all prayer and supplication.” Actually, that’s what brought me to this place in life. The Lord makes it clear in the Word that we are to worship Him. If we don’t, He’ll make the rocks cry out. But what else? Thankfully, for us as believers who have trusted in Christ as Savior, we can rest assured that we have everlasting life. So our salvation is not based on works. If you are like me, I love the Lord. He has done so much for me in all aspects. That motivates me to do as much for Him as possible. That He might use me in whatever way He can. I want to be a willing vessel. He has blessed each one of us with different gifts and talents. Would it not be wasteful and/or slothful to cast those gifts to the side with the thought of saying “I” don’t have the time, or “I” am too tired, or using some other excuse that seems to be so easy for us to find. There is so much for us to do in the service to which the Lord has called us to, “ Go ye therefore.” I had a professor who said, “Your talk talks and your walk walks, but does your talk walk?” I’d like to say, “Your service serves and your worship worships, but does your service worship?” How about let’s stop talking about going down to Siloam and helping and actually come on down! Come worship the Lord with us, using the skills and talents the Lord has given to you.
(James 1:22- “But be ye do of the word and not hearers only,”)
Mike D Rich, Director
to hear about the number of people that prayed on Thursday for our country, being the national day of prayer. The Lord has instructed us to pray for our leaders too. I was greatly saddened to read that our president did not participate. This would be a great time for you to e-mail our president and just say, “Mr. President, I am praying for you.” I know that I am encouraged when someone prays for me.
Last week on our radio program we talked to a missionary family who is serving in the middle east. We took time to pray for Israel and God’s protection over them. God is doing mighty things here and around the world and as each day draws closer to His return we will see God at work.
We praise the Lord for meeting our daily needs here at Siloam Missionary Homes and His wonderful blessing. We have three new families moving in over the next several weeks. I praise the Lord for the progress on Papa’s Workshop and also praise Him for providing workers here. We have a group that is remodeling Unit G with new flooring and countertops. This will be beautiful and ready for the new missionary family.
With work projects in full swing, we need you. Come join us. Thank you again for your prayers and financial support.
Because of Christ,
“The harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into the harvest.” This verse was written almost 2,000 years ago, yet the call still goes out today!
Siloam Missionary Homes is growing and we need volunteers more than ever! Our world is changing – we are living longer and wanting to serve more. Is this you? God has provided “time” and wonderful new opportunities are available at Siloam Missionary Homes. We could use you to mow yards, we need computer programmers, cooks and greeters – and the list goes on and on.
Over the years, many of us have begged God, “Lord, I would go if you would provide the way.”
This Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on A Place Missionaries Call Home, we will be talking with three people – a man who lost his job, a retired naval officer, and a homemaker whose children are grown. Each one is being used in a special way and making a difference by volunteering for the Lord.
God takes willing hearts and uses their talents for His glory. This is a program you won’t want to miss. Like the prophet in the Old Testament said, “Here am I, Lord, send me.”
Saturday at 3:30 – WTRU Radio
Today I thank the Lord for the liberty we have in Jesus Christ. We forget at times, because we are so self absorbed in what we see around us and what we watch on TV. We need to get back to the basics and realize that all that we are and hope to be, will be directed from the Lord. It should be my desire that God is glorified in everything I do. Least we forget, missionaries even today 2009 are being killed around the world because of their faith in Jesus Christ.
I do not take lightly your sacrificial giving or your prayers. We thank the Lord for His goodness and provision for Siloam Missionary Homes. God continues to bless Siloam. I thank the Lord, too, for the way He has opened doors through WTRU radio. Our weekly program “A Place Missionaries Call Home” is a way of telling the world about missions. Next Saturday, March 28th, our guests on the show will be Scott Hollinger and his wife, missionaries with TransWorld Radio. Their story is about how God brought a girl from Cambodia, and a man from the USA, and put them together to reach the world for Jesus Christ. I would like for you to pray that this program would convict people to give their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.
I believe we are living in the last days. Our days our numbered. We have an awesome responsibility because we know the truth and must share it any way we can with those who have never heard.
Our urgent prayer today is to please put us before the Lord daily. We, the staff of Siloam Missionary Homes, need your prayer as armor. We are here to encourage and pray for those that are going to the battlefields around the world to serve. Pray for their support and their health and God’s protection.
May our Lord Jesus Christ be glorified in all that we say and do.
