Thank you to those that have helped to support the Warner Family in this time of need! Preetika continues to see doctors and has undergone some new tests to help treat her condition.
This month Pastor Justin will be leading men from Open Door on a trip to Zambia. Please be in prayer as we endeavor to help the church at Falls View, ordain the national Pastor Luka, and set things in motion for solidifying the leadership of the church and starting new works from it in the near future.
Pastor Justin will need your prayers as he will be away from his family for 3 weeks.
Much of the roof has been set in place on the Falls View building because of your generosity. If you would like to help us reach our goal of completing the roof there, please give a donation today to help!

Preetika is continuing to receive medical treatment for unhealthy levels of mercury in her blood that was causing poisoning as well as some other things the doctors have found in their tests. Please lift her up to God for a complete healing.
Pastor Justin is continuing to organize and administrate their ministry in Zambia as best as he can while here on medical furlough, and your financial gifts are allowing support to go to the ministry there. Many reports of people coming to Christ, and being discipled are being given. Pray for Pastor Luka and the other national men who are doing a phenomenal job in the Warner's absence.
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.
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.
