One of the popular movies this time of year is called “It’s A Wonderful Life.” Well, I can tell you that it has been a wonderful year for Calvary Road Ministries, and it was all made possible because of your prayer and financial support. Here are just a few of the highlights:
- The Mission House in Kenya was remodeled to accommodate volunteers, and three churches were built in January of 2015 by a team from Chilhowee Hills Baptist Church, TN.
- Our first Bush Evangelism Team for 2015 from Sevier Heights Baptist Church, Knoxville, TN, saw over 1100 profess Christ as Savior as they worked in Kenya along the border with Tanzania.
- In February, a Pastor Training Team from Central Baptist Churches in NC and NM trained over 70 Maasai pastors to use the chronological Bible stories in discipling others.
- In March, we trained over 50 Navajo, Pueblo, and Apache Native American Leaders to use the stories.
- We introduced the Cow-Clinic strategy in Kenya in June with teams from Central Baptist, NM, and Chilhowee Hills Baptist in TN, and saw 125 Maasai saved as we vaccinated over 10,000 cattle.
- Teams from NM, TN, and NC trained 140 school teachers in Kenya and 50 more in Zambia to use the story cloth to teach the Bible and to use it to teach vocabulary, reading, math and science.
- 25 pastors in Zambia were trained to use both story cloths in their ministries in June.
- Over 900 Maasai prayed to receive Christ through the ministry of the co-ed Bush Evangelism camping team from Central Baptist Church in NC.
- The 2nd Bush Camping Team from Sevier Heights Baptist Church in TN saw 1200 saved.
- CRM partners gave over $8000 in the “Buy A Goat” program, where over 300 goats were given to families in three drought-stricken areas of Kenya.
- Recently, the CRM Board voted to add David Crane to the team. He will lead the work in S. Sudan and Uganda, and assist our work in Kenya, and help us get ready for the move to Tanzania in 2017.
- During 2015, the storycloth has been translated now into Mandarin, Bemba, and Spanish. After we finish some final edits, we will be posting the translations on the web in 2016.
- Just this month, we have run another 3000 story cloths as we prepare for our missions and ministries in 2016. We still have several thousand of the Acts story cloths left.
What a wonderful year 2015 has been! And it looks like 2016 is going to be another year filled with God’s gracious blessings on His work through CRM. None of these things could happen without you allowing God to work through your prayers and financial support. Please pray for the work, and as God leads you to give, be assured that it will be used in making disciples around the globe. Send your tax deductible gift to:

Remember, the best way for us to keep Christ in Christmas is by remembering that He came to die on the cross and rise again to make it possible for us to know Him, love Him, and serve Him. Thank you for the joy of serving our Lord with you through CRM.
