Help SWIM Ministry Through A Generous End-Year Gift Reach More People in 2011

Dear SWIM Partner,

2010 has been an incredible year as we have followed Christ to bring hope through evangelism and Leadership training to thousands of people locally and internationally.


Minnesota 2010
 Earlier in the year, we hosted the Evening of Hope in Brooklyn Center, a Suburb of Minneapolis, MN as part of our local outreach. We ministered to 560 young people, 93 of them inquiring about Christ for the first time.

Additionally, each week Suzanne and I have travelled to minister, encourage, and equip believers in dozens of local churches around the country.  Our ministry took us to more than 20 congregations around the United States.


Rwanda 2010

Our overseas missions saw us work alongside churches in the countries of Rwanda, Kenya, and Malawi with a cumulative attendance at the outreach events of 80,000 people. As we proclaimed the gospel of Christ, an estimated 20,000 people made commitments to Christ throughout our mission.


Malawi 2010
 


We give God the glory for this great favor and blessing we have enjoyed as a ministry.  We pray daily that the many people who have been reached through these efforts will continue to stand and to grow in their love for Jesus Christ.  Will you pray with us too?


As the year draws to a close, we are eager to continue to serve the church locally and world-wide in 2011. We currently have over sixty invitations from churches in several countries pleading if we would partner with them to bring the evangelistic ministry and message of hope to their communities. We would love to respond affirmatively to each one of them. But as you and I know, the cost of such ministry is always significant. We need you to help us to at least respond to a few.

No Room in the Inn...21st Century Version

It is the Christmas season 2009.  Like Joseph and Mary 2000 years ago, a young couple are on the virge of the birth of their first baby boy.  Although they are doing everything to prepare for the big day, it still catches them by surprise.  Instead of the regular 40 weeks, the baby is arriving six weeks early. Because they are not expecting it this early, their bags are not packed nor is the nursery fully furnished.  Safe for an early morning warning in a dream to the father to prepare to be in a delivery room and with assurance (from the Lord) that it would be o.k, the day started off as any other day. At 6:00 AM, the couple prays together for about 40 minutes in their home in Victoria.  They take showers.  At about 7:30 AM, the husband goes to work briefly from his home office while the wife prepares something for their breakfast together. Within a couple hours they will have a routine prenatal doctor's appointment.  Later in the evening the wife's sister and her two beau

The Other Frontline in the Battle for Souls- By Suzanne Wanyonyi

I've learned quite a bit while Sammy's been away in India. Other wives have told me over the years, that when their husbands are gone for ministry for extended periods of time, the enemy tries to attack during the husband's absence by causing the garage door to break, or the toilets to break or the hot water heater to go out. So, from the very beginning of our marriage I anticipated those things and shared my concern about them with Sammy. He understood. We've always had a plan in case something breaks around the house while he's away. Well, none of those things have ever happened. Other things have happened.  During this latest mission, while nearly 80,000 people were being won to Christ, the attack came in a way I wasn't expecting: The kids. There were more than a few nights where I had about 2 hours of sleep because the kids kept waking up. With Malaika it's not so uncommon, but Junior has slept from 8-8 for as long as I can remember. He'

A Medical Doctor With a Passion for God, a Love for People, and an Enduring Faith

Our Mission in Kenya Continued well. He is humble, he is joyful, and he works hard to make a difference among a Kenyan rural town's community.  That is Dr. Nathan Matasi, a gynecologist serving in Kitale town, Western Kenya.  There are hardly any hospitals in this part of the world.  The one government operated hospital in Kitale town serves a population of over one million people from the town and the surrounding rural farm communities.  Sammy and Gary share a moment with Dr. Matasi next to a corn field in Kitale on Tuesday morning before heading out for the prayer service in Nairobi, some 400 miles away.  Here you will find patients sleeping on the floor in overcrowded hallways, pregnant mothers sharing beds, and daily lines forming at the out-patient unit.  There are hardly modern equipment available for the few qualified doctors and nurses to use for diagnostics or treatment.  Majority of the patients can hardly afford to pay for quality medical attention. Yet it is
