A word from God’s Word:“It is God himself, in his mercy, who has given us this wonderful work [of telling his Good News to others], and so we never give up” (2 Corinthians 4:1, TLB).
Muslim Countries Being Reached with the Gospel!
Thank you again for being such a vital part of ACTS gospel outreach via your support that is an invest-ment in people's lives for all eternity.

To date this year ACTS has received 268 decision for Christ responses that have come from many countries. Several were from Muslim countries where it would mean a death sentence if you were caught even sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ! We truly thank God for the incredible means of communications we currently have that can reach people worldwide—even behind closed doors—and for the wonderful privilege of having a small part in what God is doing in the world today.
I am constantly reminded of the words of Jesus when He said: "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come" (Matthew 24:14). With all of today's modern means of communication the gospel is speeding to the ends of the earth as never before in all of human history. Thus today it appears that the setting of the stage for Christ's return is accelerating. Even so come Lord Jesus!
Thus it is imperative that we continue to reach as many people as possible with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ while the doors are still open.
The majority of ACTS decision for Christ responses come from ACTS Daily Encounter devotional which has 415,000+ worldwide subscribers. These subscribers are obtained through constant advertising via a secular company, which advertises worldwide, so we can reach as many people as possible—especially people who need the Savior. For over ten years this advertising has cost an average of $2,000 a month which is an ongoing—but highly
motivating—challenge to maintain.
Because of the incredible competition via today's electronic media, it takes aggressive advertising to get Daily Encounter and the ACTS gospel webpages known, seen, and read by readers worldwide!
It is very encouraging too that besides receiving almost daily decision for Christ
responses, we also receive many responses from ACTS Daily Encounter subscribers and visitors to ACTS web pages. For example following are three of these responses:
"Every day the first thing I look for in my e-mail is the Daily
Encounter. I love this. It
has helped me so much. I just want to
thank you for this. I print each one out every
day and this is my
reading material. Thank God for this and thank God for you." –
"Your ACTS website is very helpful for pastors and church leaders.
I am a pastor and
denominational leader in Ethiopia. I read your
articles and am blessed." – Pastor F.L.H.
"Thank you for inspiring me to recommit my life to Jesus." – A.E.
We thank God for these and every response to the gospel we receive almost dailly—all year long. It is a wonderful opportunity and privilege.
If you are not already an ACTS supporter, will you prayerfully consider joining with ACTS as a Share Prayer Partner with your monthly support and thereby help ACTS to keep on sharing the gospel and reaching so many more people with the saving gospel message of the Lord Jesus Christ every day of the year?
To every ACTS supporter we again sincerely thank you for your support for the gospel ministry of ACTS International which is helping to reach people worldwide with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ 24-7-365!
According to Google statistics on average people from 194 countries and territories are visiting ACTS gospel Internet pages every month and, as already noted, more than a third-of-a-million Daily Encounter subscribers are receiving a message from God's Word every weekday of the year. Salvation decision responses have come from more than 160 of these countries that we know about! It is such a blessing that in so many lands English is taught as a second
language. However, we also have Daily Encounter and Internet articles in Spanish.
Thank you again for your faithful support which is keeping ACTS sharing the message of Jesus Christ with well over a third-of-a-million worldwide Daily Encounter subscribers every weekday of the year—equaling eight million Daily Encounter messages being e-mailed this month. Untold numbers more will receive the gospel via ACTS websites. We thank God for this incredible opportunity and for all who are recording a decision response for Jesus Christ this and every month of the year.
Know that it is folk like you who support ACTS ministry that make it possible for ACTS to keep on spreading the message of Jesus worldwide 24-7-365.
As you stand with us this month, may God richly bless and reward you in His own abundant way.
Gratefully in Christ,
Dick and Joy Innes

Continued need for special prayer. As noted before, this past year we lost one half of our regular monthly supporters; thus there is a vital need to replace these donors so we can maintain our uncompromising gospel outreach.
Additional Outreach Opportunities: Ralph Porter, a military chaplain, forwards many issues of Daily Encounter to those to whom he ministers. In doing so he is reaching many service personnel with the gospel of Jesus Christ. So we encourage you to also forward copies of Daily Encounter to friends and contacts to help share the message of Jesus Christ with them.
