How to Use WEI

 

Matt 28:18-20

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
NIV

John 20:10-16

10 Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11 but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

13 They asked her, "Woman, why are you crying?"

"They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don't know where they have put him." 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.

15 "Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?"

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him."

16 Jesus said to her, "Mary."

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher).
NIV

Jane’s Inspiring Story
In 2001, Jane K. enrolled as a WEI student in Rwanda while serving as a nurse in a military hospital. She was in charge of the Intensive Care Unit. Jane was also involved in the League for Promotion and Defense of Human Rights (Pax Christ), a part of International Federation of Human Rights.

In 2002, Jane completed the first six books of the WEI English and Bible Courses and asked to be baptized. But before her American teacher could arrange to have someone baptize her, Jane and her husband were both arrested and put in jail as political prisoners.
Jane is a Tutsi, and her husband is a Hutu. They have two children and are responsible for a niece whose parents were killed during the 1994 genocide.

Jane says, “People in my country are killed, disappearing, and others are forced into exile. The government doesn’t want to talk about these injustices with human rights activists. That is why my husband and I were arrested in order to silence us.

“We have an association of genocide survivors in Rwanda (I am a survivor of genocide). It wants me to divorce my husband saying he is a Hutu, and Hutus killed Tutsis in genocide in 1994. Not all Hutus. I was hidden by a Hutu, so I refused.

“I was released from prison in November 2003, and in July 2004 I came to America with an American student who was doing her research about the genocide in Rwanda. I have no idea where my husband is, but I know that one time, God will unity us.”



Jane K.

In November, 2004, Jane sent an email saying she wanted to continue her studies with WEI. I volunteered to teach her. Instead, I have learned from her.
 
While studying The New Birth, Jane was granted political asylum by the U.S. government and was given a green card permitting her to work.

On April 28, Jane wrote, “I got a new job, and I got the news about my family. They are currently living in Uganda. My mind is somewhat settled, and I can go on with English and Bible study. And I request you to send me the Pastor.”

With great excitement, I contacted Mark Banks, minister of the Cole Mill Road Church of Christ in Durham, NC. He and his wife Catherine met Jane at her apartment and began a series of Bible studies. Jane wrote, “We had a good time together, we prayed together, and I hope the Holy Spirit will do his work in me. I am ready to do God’s will.”

At the Sunday morning worship service on May 15, Jane was baptized into Christ by Paul Watson. Two days later, she wrote, “I was baptized on Sunday. It was a good day, and I talked with my husband about my baptism, and he was happy.”
 



Paul Watson Baptizes Jane into Christ
 

Jane has now been united with her Lord in baptism. Let us pray that she will soon be reunited with her family.

New Christian in Oradea
Vasile Luhos sends the following report from Oradea, Romania:
“Yesterday was a blessed day for Oradea’s congregation because a new soul came to the Lord and confessed Him in baptism. His name is Andras Kustusy, a 17 year old young man who has studied WEI materials the last two summers, and he decided to follow the will of God.”

New Christian in Arad
Larry Little, missionary in Arad, Romania, sends the following report:
“Rejoice with us over the baptism of a lady, 28 years old, married and with a child, who obeyed the gospel on Sunday. Mariana studied the basic course in WEI last summer in the campaign and started attending some. She quit, then began again. Kay had taught her, and she told Kay that she had been doing a lot of thinking and praying and now wanted to be baptized.”

New Christians in Lushnja
A recent newsletter from Tom Bonner, missionary in Lushnja, Albania, was filled with excitement.

Tom says, “I am pleased and thrilled to tell you that we have two new sisters in Christ. On May 29, Silvana Eksarko and Alma Kajdo were baptized into Christ in the Adriatic Sea. Both have been studying with me for more than a year and have become my friends even before they became my sisters. They were both raised as nominal Moslems.

“Prior to their baptisms, Alma said, ‘I had known about God, but I did not know about Jesus. Now, I know that He is my Savior.’

Much zeal and enthusiasm is brought to our small body here with the addition of these two ladies.”

 


Silvana Eksarko & Alma Kaido

New Christian in Pogradec
Kevin and Allison Morrill wrote in their June report from Pogradec, Albania, “On May 6th, we welcomed a new sister in the body. Elona Sulollari, a WEI student, decided that she wanted her sins to be forgiven in baptism. She has been a student of Allison’s for about eight months.”

New Christians in Ghana
John Travis just keeps on teaching and baptizing WEI students at the Buduburam Refugee Camp near Accra, Ghana.

“Peter W. Bull, born July 9, 1973 in Monrovia, was baptized on Thursday.”

“Amulad Dorley and Mathaline Scott have received Christ. Amulad is a former Muslim and is an English and NationsUniversity student. Mathaline was privately taught by Louise Knuckles, one of our beloved students who was baptized 7th May, 2004.

 


Mathalene Scott, Almulad Dorley, & Anthony Barlee

“Godwin Sanbulah, a Muslim, was baptized into Christ on Saturday, 7 May, 2005. Godwin was born in Liberia. We thank God for WEI whose lessons this brother used to convict him.
“We are happy to announce the baptism of Stella T. Dennis. She was baptized May 22, 2005” In his July 4 newsletter, John reported nine recent baptisms. Praise God.

New WEI Work in Liberia
George S. Tengbeh II, (former WEI teacher at the Buduburam refugee camp in Ghana), has secured eight acres of land in Weala, Liberia and plans to build a WEI/NationsUniversity Center on it. Please pray for his success.

In a recent email, George wrote, “I am now your contact person in Liberia. Brother Rudy Wray and Larry Partain departed from Liberia today. We had a very good time together with the Lord. Besides Sunday, at which time he [Rudy] spoke as guest preacher during the graduation program of the School of Evangelism, we had another three days of Gospel Campaign. Twelve souls were added to the church through water baptism.”

An Interesting Story from Uganda
Five year ago, Glenn Cash and I led a WEI summer campaign in Fort Portal, Uganda where Glenn’s son Jeff serves as a missionary. Six people were baptized into Christ during the campaign, but some of the seeds planted that summer are just now bearing fruit.

Glenn writes, “In the year 2000, when the WEI team went to Ft. Portal, a young man was invited to come to study the lessons. He came and was given a Bible by Ronald, but did not continue through the entire course. However, he was in the church building one day reading his new Bible. One of the men came over and sat down beside him, encouraging him to read God’s word. He continued to read even though he dropped out of the studies.

“When he moved to Entebbe, he looked for the church of Christ, but instead found the Church of Christ of Latter Day Saints. They drew him into their fellowship, but in time he thought to himself that this was not what he was reading in the Bible.

“After moving back to Ft. Portal, he went to the place where the church had met, but the church had moved, and he didn’t know where. Then, one day, he saw Jeff’s pickup and finally found Jeff. He asked if he could have some Bible studies, because he really wanted to learn about God’s will, particularly concerning baptism.

“They studied, and the young man was baptized this week.

“We never know what seeds are planted or when God will bring forth fruit. This young man was impressed by an encouragement to read the Bible. Nearly five years later, he has now put on Christ and is our brother.”

Hodges & Morrils Return Home
It makes us sad to report that Pete and Dulcie Hodge, missionaries in Elbasan, Albania, returned home to England in May. The young church in Elbasan is now on its own. Pray for them.

Kevin and Allison Morrill also concluded their mission work in Pogradec in June and returned to America. Both couples will be sorely missed.

Please Pray With Us
In recent weeks, serious questions have been raised about the validity of some of the reports we have been receiving from Kenya and the Middle East. Investigations are under way in an effort to determine the truth.

Please pray that God will give us wisdom in our research so that truth will prevail and God will be glorified.



Tom and Angie Langley

Message from the Langleys
The grass is a little greener, the sky a little bluer, and the smiles on my children’s faces linger on my mind long after the first good morning kiss.

I cannot think of many things more meaningful or rewarding than serving God in this WEI ministry. The scope of this powerful mission ministry is truly international. It requires me to travel long distances which is a blessing, and at the same time a great sacrifice. I thoroughly enjoy traveling, and I thoroughly miss my family every second I’m away from them.

I was in central London on the morning of July 7, after an overnight layover on my way home from the start of our 4 short-term missions in Romania. Two steps into the subway that morning, I suddenly had a strong impulse to buy a new shirt for my long travel home. My remaining clean shirt was old and wrinkled. I backed out and shopped for 30 minutes. When I returned to the subway, all chaos had ensued. After one bus, one taxi, and a lot of running between, I finally made it to Heathrow and through security just before boarding. It was surreal watching new reports at the airport in Chicago later that evening and knowing just hours earlier, I was in the middle of all that chaos.

As it turned out, the deadliest explosion occurred on the very line that I was to take to Heathrow that morning. According to the time of the explosion, I would likely have been on the train had I not impulsively decided to buy a new shirt for my trip home.

At the time of this writing, four Romanian missions and the work in Albania are going exceptionally well. The many faithful Christians involved in the success of these efforts are too numerous to mention. Over 60 Americans have traveled to Eastern Europe as WEI teachers and have sacrificed greatly to share the Good News and their faith with hundreds of students. To all these teachers, we thank you with all our hearts for partnering with us in WEI. Most importantly, we thank you for your dedication, commitment, love, and sacrifice for our Lord. May God bless you and keep you safe in the shelter of his arms. –Tom & Angie

 

Dick & Maudine Ady

Message from the Adys
It is gratifying to watch people come alive when they start winning souls through WEI. Correspondence teachers, Internet teachers, short-term mission teachers are thrilled when their students are baptized into Christ.

This spring, Sarah Coggins went to Taiwan with Enoch and Jeannine Thweatt on a WEI campaign. Listen to what she said to Tom Langley in an email:
“The Lord truly is in this place, and He has provided a way to share Himself with these wonderful people. It is one of the MOST exciting events in my life!

“The material the Lord has provided through Dick and his worker-bees is a true gift. For the first time, I’m able to share the Good News with both males and females. The parable of the sower has taken on a new meaning for me.

“At the end of the Intermediate Course, I ask my students, ‘What do you think of the course?’ Andrew, a young man in his late 20’s replied, ‘I’ve attended Bible school, and missionaries have told me stories—but this is the first time I’ve ever understood the complete story.’”
Thank you, Sarah, for your spiritual shot in the arm.

Can You Help?
God is using WEI to spread the Good News to people in at least 174 nations. More and more churches and their missionaries are using WEI materials to attract students and to win souls.

More and more national preachers are asking us to send materials to them for their outreach ministries. It breaks our hearts to tell them, “Sorry, we are operating on a shoestring.”

Will you partner with us in world evangelism by putting WEI in your monthly budget? Help us walk through the doors that God has opened.

To those who are already supporting WEI, we say, “Thanks.

We love you.” -- Dick & Maudine
