“I WANT TO BE A MISSIONARY”
--Avarie Faith Nicole Miller
Avarie recently turned 9 years old and for her birthday she asked her family to contribute money to be sent to South Sudan instead of buying her toys or other gifts. With her mother and father’s permission, (Les and Natasha Miller of Fredonia, KS) following is the letter she sent with her $160! Oh, to be like a young person who has a heart for missions!

BEV TO ZIMBABWE FOR A LADIES CONFERENCE
Over a year ago I was asked by my good friend, Martha Nyamutora and her husband, Fanny to come to Zimbabwe to speak on a Ladies Conference in April 2018. I first met Fanny and Martha when they came to Rochester, MN to attend Crossroads College with their two young boys, Simba and Mark. (Son #3, Joshua was born while they were in Rochester).
Because Dad and Mom (Paul and Marilyn Douglass) had known Fanny and Martha while they were in Zimbabwe and some of the young men were going to Zimbabwe Bible College there, Dad suggested I “get to know them”. Little did I know this would become a lasting, enduring friendship! I remember taking Martha to a Ladies Conference in Rochester and sitting with her as she experienced a U.S. ladies conference first hand. Now I am going to Zimbabwe and will be experiencing a Ladies Conference in their country.
In addition to myself, there are three other ladies going. Marette Jorgenson and Michelle Larson from Rochester, MN and Sharon Werner from Lyons, Colorado.
The Conference is April 26-29 and I will be one of the speakers. The topic I have been given is “Experiencing the Power of Prayer”. In addition to the Ladies Conference, we will be helping with a Holiday Bible School for children, April 18-22 and visiting the Chidamoyo Christian Hospital.
Please keep our group in your prayers. We leave April 15th from Minneapolis and will return on May 2nd. I will be leaving Portland April 11th and will be gone three weeks since I will be attending a IDES Board of Directors meeting prior to our trip. I will do my best to get receipts out and correspondence answered in a timely manner when I return.

BAPTISM REPORT FROM MALEK CHURCH OF CHRIST
We are sending you greetings in Jesus’ name. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
Yesterday was a big day at Malek. Baptisms were conducted along the river Kueng and below is the report.
We have a new born-again group in Christ today, Sunday, February 18, 2018, at Malek Church of Christ. Thirteen members of the 23 men and women baptized today are students evangelists at Aweil Bible College. The students at ABC came from various churches but have now learned and believed that immersion under water is the true symbol of baptism. Today they confessed Christ and were baptized.
The other ten men and women were moved by the Word and have now become Christians. As evangelists of Malek Church of Christ, we are now doing our work and duties in Christ as scripture says in the book of Matthew 28:16-20.
We are requesting prayers for faith, spiritual growth, wisdom and health in Christ for the new members of the church.
Following is a list of our newly born-again students and converts so you may pray for them by name.
