Thanks for your continued prayers & financial support. The Warner's will arrive in New Jersey tomorrow evening & plan to work with us at Open Door over the next few months while Preetika continues to deal with her health issues.
Our desire is that we see her completely healed and restored in health in the next few months so that they can return quickly to their ministry in Zambia. Will you please pray with us?
If you can help by giving there are some added expenses to their travel and settling into their temporary apartment in New Jersey. We appreciate all of your prayers and support on behalf of the Warner Family.
Justin & Elijah arrived safely in Zambia just a little over a week ago and have seen wonderful fruit & answered prayer. In addition to seeing souls saved, and new guests at Falls View, Elijah was approved for US Citizenship very quickly, which is a tremendous answer to prayer.
Thank you for your continued prayers & support of the family. Preetika is still in California with her parents awaiting another test in March. Please pray for strength, grace, and complete healing. As you can imagine, it is difficult being on the other side of the world from your family in addition to bearing the physical burdens of being ill. We aren't far from our financial goal for the family's needs, please give if you can help and share the Elijah video and their story with others!

Bro. Warner flew with Elijah last week to be back in Zambia. Yesterday they saw a man come to Christ who brought his son with him to church on Sunday. God bless them with great services at Falls View this weekend.
Please pray for safety, strength, & direction as they finalize paperwork for Elijah's American citizenship while in Zambia.
Pray for Preetika who desires to be with her family and their ministry. Pray that God completely heals her.
The Warner's arrived safely in California, and Preetika has seen doctors in her first round of visits. She is currently undergoing several MRI's & blood tests in hopes of identifying the cause of her illness and physical complications.
Please continue to pray for their family, and for Preetika's health to improve so that they can return on schedule to their ministry in Zambia.
Share this need with others, and pray that we will meet the financial goals set to help their ministry.
Th Warner's will be landing this evening in California. Please pray for continued traveling mercies for them, and for Preetika as she begins appointments, tests, etc at the doctors to get to the bottom of her illness. Pray also, that we will hit the final goal here in the the next few weeks, and continue to share with friends their needs and ministry.
The Warners are making final preparations this week to head for the United States. Because of you travel expenses have been completely covered, and we are well on our way to assisting with medical treatment and hopefully seeing work done on the church there in Livingstone.
Please remember to pray that God would give Preetika strength as she makes the extremely long trip, and for doctor's to have wisdom as they make diagnosis on her condition. Pray the Lord would heal Preetika.
Thank you for your continued prayers & support toward to Warner Family. After traveling to Lusaka for some final appointments before heading to the US, doctors were unable to give any solid answers as to Preetika's ongoing pain.
Thankfully, after hearing about a worldwide delay on traveling Visas, they heard back today that Elijah's Visa was approved and ready for pickup.
Please pray that doctors in the US will have some answers quickly as to Preetika's condition, and that she will receive the care and rest she needs to recover quickly so that they can return home on schedule.
As always, please share this need with others and pray that the goal is met. Thanks again.
The Warners have travelled today to Lusaka to visit with a dentist there to try to rule out any possible infections that could have originated in the mouth and spread throughout the body. Pray for them as this is a very long trip to make from Livingstone to the capital city in Zambia and can be very taxing on Preetika in her current already fatigued state.
While in Lusaka they Warners will also be finalizing some paperwork for Elijah for their trip to the US in just a couple weeks. Pray that all goes smoothly with this, today.
Thank you for the outpouring of support and prayers, and for those that have shared this need with others. Let us all remember today, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19.
God is doing some wonderful things to show His great supply in trials toward the Warner Family. After a little more than a week we are seeing that little is truly much when God is in it!

Don't forget to share this site, videos, and the Warner's ministry with everyone you can.
Attached is a video from my recent trip to Zambia to see the Warners with Andrew Garcia. In God's great wisdom He knew that the timing of this visit would be perfect so that we could get this need out to as many as possible.
An anonymous gift sent in the mail in the amount of $5 cash came in the mail today for the Warners. It's amazing how we can truly all have a part no matter what amount.
If the little boy would have thought his lunch wasn't enough or was insignificant he wouldn't have had a part in an awesome miracle. Miracles aren't about our ability, they are about God's. Displays of faith in His ability by doing what we can knowing it isn't enough moves the heart of God to do what we couldn't. Have a part today, no matter how small! God can do this.
Because of your help, we were already able to secure plane tickets for Justin, Preetika, & Elijah to come to the Unites States for Preetika's medical treatment.
They will be flying to California in early August. Please pray that we will continue to raise money to help with the medical costs, and their ministry back home in Livingstone, Zambia.
If you know some area businesses that would be interested in helping with this need feel free to share it with as many people as possible.
Pastor John Wilkerson, Pastor Mike Norris, Pastor Scott Tewell, & Pastor Kurt Skelly have all said they will be brining this need before their church families. Please pray that God will move on these thousands of people to help, and thank you for what you have done to be a part.
If you haven't given, don't wait, be a part if God leads you, today!
"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh:is there any thing too hard for me?" - Jeremiah 32:27
My wife shared with our church staff this morning that God gave her this verse to claim for Preetika. She has had this card taped above our kitchen sink as a reminder, and I snapped a shot of it late last night as it ministered to my heart.
What an amazing God we have! There's nothing He cannot do, and when He does something no one else can take the credit for it. We are so thankful to see all that has been accomplished through so many. Keep praying and sharing this need, and give what you can.
We are all well aware that God often uses weakness to reveal His awesome power and strength. We are praying that God will use this unfortunate situation to turn eyes and hearts toward this ministry in Africa, and get behind it financially so that we can see the miraculous done for the gospel's sake there in Zambia. Buildings, Vehicles, etc aren't the goal, but are tools needed to effectively accomplish the goal that every Christian should be invested in- seeing the gospel go around the world in our generation.
If you are a Pastor, perhaps you can download the attached videos and show this need to your church family and give them the option to give. It won't cost you a thing to show the video or reveal the need. What the people choose do to as a result can have a tremendous impact.
If you are an individual not representing a ministry, your impact is just as great. You can share this need through social networks and by word of mouth to friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members. People want to know their money has impact. This is a way to guarantee it does.
Please continue to pray & share this need with as many people as you can. We are praying that we can stretch our original goal to raise money to complete the Falls View Building.
God always has a way of taking bad situations and using them for His glory. It would be incredible if this one could be used to complete the building there in Livingstone, Zambia. Will you pray & help?
In just over 1 day we've almost reached 50% of the goal. Who can you share this with that can help today? Preetika said yesterday, "This is great and so incredible. Once again, the Lord is making us feel loved and cared for through it all." You've been a part of that! Thank you.
Justin and Preetika Warner have faithfully been serving the Lord in Livingstone, Zambia for almost 10 years. In June of 2008 they established Falls View, a local church just a few miles from the great Victoria Falls. In addition to the excellent ministry work they have been doing in Zambia they have also recently adopted their son, Elijah, a native Zambian boy who was abandoned very close to their home. The powerful story of this little boy, Elijah, will be released as a brief documentary in the near future.
Of late, Preetika has been having some medical complications which has made ministry in Zambia very difficult for the family. She has been suffering from intense pain throughout her body that has caused her to be confined to her bed for the past few weeks. They have sought care and council from local medical doctors with no positive results. After receiving advice and council from their mission board and home church, they have decided it best and urgent for the family to come home so that Preetika can receive medical care. It is the desire of the Warner family to receive the much needed care as quickly as possible, and then return to their home and ministry in Zambia.
This is where we come in. We can come together to show love and support for what this family is doing right now by giving to meet this emergency need!
Your gift will get the family home quickly (by August 5th), allow Preetika to get the much needed diagnosis and treatment, and then get them back home to Zambia so that they can effectively continue their ministry there.
