Gaudet Family Update – Shipment Needed

October 20 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:

Dear Intercessors,

We have been awaiting word from several people before planning a shipment of Bibles, New Testaments and Gospels in Burmese. We feel that we now have a handle on it. Much has changed since our last shipment which was held up part of the way to its destination and took 3 months to arrive. Transport costs have gone up. There are several factors causing this but it is a fact.

We have diligently searched for other, cheaper ways to transport these materials. We even heard of ways that were possible only to find that they were not viable. We also wanted to make sure that the recipients were men who were distributing these materials. Now that the proper amount of time needed to survey this has been spent, we are ready to make the shipment.

While this was being done several smaller strategic shipments were made to various places from which we had received requests for Scriptures. We even made a shipment to Malaysia where people from Burma are working! We still have more of those smaller shipments to make but now need to handle this big one.

We have on hand approximately $4,400 of the $7,500 that will be required to get this initial shipment underway. There has been some interest expressed in helping with these costs, so we ask you to pray. I was asked recently if there was a cheaper way to do what we are doing. My answer was… “Probably, but we have not yet found it, and if the question demands an answer today, I would say, ‘do nothing'” Doing nothing however is not really an option as these materials are stored in facilities we are paying rent on each month. Besides that, the need great now. By the way, two of these shipments could be made now if funds were available.

As an example I would like to share with you a part of an e-mail I received yesterday. This is typical of many…

“There are so many things that we needed in the ministry. But the greatest need of all times is Bible, the word of God. We badly need the Bible and Burmese literatures. (Most of) the churches have no Bible. It is such a joy to know that you have seen the great need of Bible in Burma and even around the world.”

In upcoming updates, I will have testimonies from distributors as well as photos. Please pray! Prayer has always worked in the past.

For Souls Still Waiting,
Tom and Krinny Gaudet
