Adventures in Missions

Bill Rudge has led dozens of mission trips into remote and often extremely dangerous areas of the world to minister at conventions, conferences, churches, schools, leper colonies, hospitals and villages. He has taken many adults and young people on these mission trips in the U.S. and to more than 25 countries where they assisted him while learning different aspects of ministry. These people have returned to their local churches to share some incredible experiences of what God did. Some of them have coordinated their own mission trips and taken other people from their local congregation with them to multiply our missionary efforts.

 

 

Around the World Outreach 2

Arizona, South Korea, Philippines, Thailand, India, and Israel

 

The Bill Rudge Ministries’ “Around the World Outreach 2” was a whirlwind of missions activities focusing on the Acts 1:8 vision of reaching the world for Christ.

In the breathtaking time of only 3 weeks, we traveled to Arizona, South Korea, the Philippines, Thailand, India, and Israel. The response to our ministry was tremendous!

We began in Arizona Bill where Bill and Karen were interviewed on TV 21, Trinity Broadcasting and on KXEG radio. Bill then spoke to a receptive audience at an awesome church in Green Valley, Arizona.

From there we flew to South Korea. Because of Bill’s well received ministry to the military in South Korea, the chaplains who sponsored him invited him back.

In the Philippines we ministered in song and word at a Chinese high school where over 2,000 students attended an assembly to hear Bill speak. Bill also spoke at a seminary in the Philippines. The impact was tremendous at both of these places, and Bill was requested to return to speak at other schools and colleges throughout the Philippines.

On a 12 hour layover in Thailand, we toured Bangkok and handed out some of our pamphlets.

The impact of our ministry in India was excellent as we had opportunity to minister at a convention, rallies, youth outreaches, a pastor’s conference, the famous Wanless Hospital in Miraj, and a leper colony. We received numerous letters from various leaders throughout India who came to hear Bill speak and then requested him to minister at their future conventions. One pastor and his wife rode 24 hours by train to invite Bill to minister at their upcoming convention. Many in India who came to hear Bill speak gave their lives to Christ. Believers were greatly challenged to live totally for the Lord and walk in the genuine power of His Spirit.

Our faith was strengthened once again in Israel as we spent time researching various archaeological sites and at the Temple Institute –– investigating plans to rebuild the Temple which many believe will fulfill Bible prophecy.

We had a rigorous travel and ministry schedule (frequently with little sleep), but the team handled it well. Karen Chenoweth did an excellent job ministering in song before Bill’s speaking engagements. Other team members –– Bill’s wife Karen, Rick Chenoweth, and Cal and Julie Langle –– also did a great job sharing and were a blessing to the people to whom they ministered.

Hundreds of Bill’s pamphlets, books, and audio messages were joyfully received by those on the street and by those hearing Bill speak. We also gave packets of our materials to all the schools and colleges where we ministered, and to host pastors.
