 Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
 

    I would like to express to you my deepest gratitude for your prayers and partnership with us. Because of your gifts, you are sharing in the mission of reaching out with God’s word to those who are waiting to hear and we are sharing the treasure that has been entrusted to us, the gospel of Jesus Christ.

When God wanted an ark constructed, he used Noah, when God wanted the tabernacle built he used Bezalel and Oholiab. When Jesus fed the 5000 he used the disciples to distribute the bread and fish. There are numerous scriptures that reveals the sovereign God can do his work without man. But also we know he chooses to do his work through man, God himself took on the human body to accomplish his work of redemption on earth. Never under-estimate the importance of your body. Our body through regeneration becomes the dwelling place for the Spirit of God.  “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not us.”  II Cor 4:7. The treasure is the very life of God in us. He didn’t give us this treasure to protect, but he gave us this treasure to invest it. Note the apostle Paul acknowledging the treasure entrusted to him. “According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust”, I Tim1:11. Paul invested that treasure into Timothy. “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust.” I Tim 6:20. Timothy invested the treasure in others. “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witness, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach other.” II Tim 2:2. The Spirit of God and the word of God is invested in us, the earthen vessel, and we must be investing that which has been entrusted to us by giving them the Word of God.

AFRICA: Rainbow: All the children are in school and doing well. The staff at Rainbow continues the daily work with joyful spirit, investing in the lives of the children that God has entrusted us with. Pray for Bro Martin, our administrator, he has malaria and is taking medications. The Lord has blessed and we are expecting a good harvest this year, the rains have been the right amount at the right time. Simion Church, is our outermost church plant, and they have a burden to reach out to a village and hour drive farther past Simion, which has no church. Bro Martin and the saints from Simion went there and received a warm welcome by the village chief and then they preached the gospel. We will now focus on planting a church in that village. We are also reprinting the BUSH books in Chichewa language. As the work grows the demand for discipleship is great. Praise the Lord.  We are expecting our solar panels and solar water pump, that were donated and shipped from America, to arrive at the end of March, please keep this shipment in your prayers for the system to arrive safely and with no delays with customs or border crossings. 

We praise the Lord for his faithfulness to use the BUSH doctrinal materials in so many countries, to strengthen the brethren and fellow believers, helping them, by investing with you, through your gifts of prayers and support. God Bless you. I have received several emails from a pastor that attended the conferences we held, stating that it was a blessing to be ministered unto by the Word of God that was preached and to receive the BUSH books. One pastor wrote, “We are encouraged by the BUSH book, it reveals scripture clearly and brings understanding we’ve not had before. Now it is our mission to take these teachings to as many pastors and elders as possible.” Praise the Lord, that they are investing the treasure that they has been entrusted to them, by investing in others…That is MISSIONS! 

 

Thank you for your faithful involvement in the ministry, your prayers and support are source of great encouragement to me. Together we are investing ourselves into the Kingdom work.

“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, if we ask
anything according to His will, He heareth us.
And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have
                                               the petitions that we desired of Him.” I John 5:14-15
 
TO GOD BE THE GLORY, FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE.
