Prayer Encounter ... a report to Prayer Partners of ACTS International


"I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:1-2, NIV).

January, 2017

Wishing you a God-blessed and Happy New year!

Dear Friend,

ACTS Board of Directors, with Joy and myself, trust you and your loved ones have had a joyous Christmas season. We also wish you God's richest blessing for the New Year, and we thank all who via your financial and prayer support, helped make 2016 another excellent year of gospel outreach for the ministry of ACTS.

We are also very thankful to God who made it possible for ACTS to reach multiplied thousands worldwide 24-7-365 with God’s message of salvation through Jesus Christ this past year via Daily Encounter, Weekend Encounter, and the ACTS gospel web pages. Many of these people would not have been able to experience Christ’s "Joy to the world" at the December holy-day season without your help.

The past year of 2016 was another very encouraging year—all made possible by the support of concerned Christians such as yourself, allowing ACTS to offer Daily and Weekend Encounters, ACTS follow-up, e-Mail counseling, and all of the ACTS website articles and ministries without charge to over a quarter-million Encounter subscribers people worldwide—every weekday of the year (and many more over the weekends)—many of whom are from countries where it is forbidden to present the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

Every month, in addition to Encounter readers, we average many thousands of visitors to ACTS website pages from (according to Google statistics) 194 countries and territories. As a result 1,775 salvation and re-commitment to Christ decision responses were received this past year—making a total of 44,915 decision for Christ responses from 165 countries since going online in 1998.

Every decision respondent received helpful follow-up articles via the web. This is a great help because respondents from some countries are not able to attend or even find a church to receive this kind of help. Some would even be killed if they became known as followers of Jesus Christ! You can see ACTS ten excellent follow-up articles online at:

Commitment to Jesus Christ responses have come from Afghanistan and Argentina to Australia … Bahrain to Brazil … Cambodia to Cuba … Germany to Guatemala … Iran, Iraq, and Israel to Italy … Jamaica to Jordan … Uruguay to USA … etc., from 78 countries that we know about.

As Jesus said, "You are to go into all the world and preach [communicate] God's Good News to everyone everywhere" (Mark 16:15). This is a challenge that is desperately needed as the gospel message of Jesus Christ is the only hope of today's sin-sick, troubled world.

As another has so well said, “Because Jesus came you and I can make a difference.” In fact, together—with your support—we can make a profound difference by helping to reach as many people as possible worldwide with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ … a task that ACTS is totally committed to and has been since our inception in 1971.

While Daily and Weekend Encounters and ACTS web articles are all sent without charge, overhead expenses, web server costs, technical support, translation service for our Spanish Daily Encounters and website articles, salaries, and daily advertising to reach multiplied thousands of non-churched people every day with God's message all cost money—quite a lot in fact!

Furthermore, with the the loss of many monthly supporters, to continue ACTS dynamic gospel outreach we urgently need your ongoing sacrificial support at this time.

So dear friend, can we please count on you to stand with us again this year with your prayer and sacrificial financial support? Also, know that your support—large or small—will be a tremendous help and greatly appreciated, as it will help ACTS reach many more thousands of people with the saving gospel of Jesus Christ in 2017.

As you stand with us thia monrh may God richly bless and reward you in his own abundant way.

Gratefully in Christ,

Dick and Joy Innes
