Timothy D. Fox
It is with saddened hearts that we share with you that our former ACGC Missions Director Tim Fox fell asleep in Christ on Sunday, June 16, 2019 after a long struggle with cancer.
Tim served as Director of World Outreach for five years (2006 – 2011). He had a great desire to share the good news of Christ’s love, giving much of himself for the Lord’s work.
A Celebration of Life service was held on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Connected Nazarene Church in Carson City, Nev.
Please be in prayer that God will provide Ruth and the family with comfort and peace and fill them with needed strength and hope.
Ambassadors to Liberia
We are gearing up for a trip to Liberia in October. This is a “come and see” venture for those who would like to participate. When the disciples of John the Baptist asked the Lord Jesus, “Where do you live?” he replied, “Come and see!” Their lives were never the same after that.
God is inviting some to come and see the needs. Liberia is a country still reeling from battles with decades of civil war, diseases, government corruption and all of the issues that rest in a Majority World country. These apparent needs are mere symptoms of the greatest need of all, which is a relationship with the God who formed them.
News from Latin America Ministries
One of the changes that Cristo Salva made some time ago was to hold a youth rally each trip. The attendance was open to all youth, but mandatory for the youth in the scholarship program. It allowed for better monitoring of the program, insuring that the students were in school as well as building better relationships with them. The increased administrative accountability also brought an eternal aspect to the program. During the latest trip in April, three students asked Jesus to be their savior in the youth service! It was a great service and the Lord was glorified.

News from our Tanzania AC Conference
Pastor Sinis is a woman. Women pastors are common in the West, but quite rare in Tanzania.
Her story begins with a trip to the market where she heard a man preaching in the open square. Pastor Johnson Odoyo was speaking of the God who created all things. He told of how we had rejected this God, so he sent his only Son to win us back to him. Sinis joined others that day who publicly declared that they wanted to know this God. Her life was changed completely, and it continued to change as she absorbed the Scriptures.
