Dear Supporters and Friends of this Ministry,

“Be filled with the Spirit.” (Ephesians 5:18)

When we realize how much the Holy Spirit does in our lives, we need to pray more fervently to “keep on being” filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works in our salvation; being born again of the Spirit, the indwelling of the Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is our teacher. We are sanctified by the Spirit. He helps us put off the old nature and put on the new nature. He gives us the fruit of the Spirit, and baptizes into the Church.

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit; is the second definite work of grace, seals us by the Spirit, qualifies us for the gifts of the Spirit, and is the Spirit of Adoption. The Ministries of the Spirit are given by the Spirit. It is the Spirit who will resurrect us from the dead. Therefore we need to keep on seeking a renewing of our infilling of the Holy Spirit so that we can enter into all that the Lord has given us by the Spirit for our complete salvation.

Mission Ministry:

Joseph Mugo, Kianyaga, Kenya:

Mugo is so happy with how far they have been able to go with the construction of their temporary headquarters church for the Omega Pentecostal Churches. With the $1,000 they have received so far, they have completed the walls and roof, with the windows and doors. With the next $500 to be offered next month, they want to buy one hundred plastic chairs. Another $200 has been loaned for Mugo to buy insurance for his vehicle for another year. Praise God that someone has donated $100 anonyous-ly for Mugo’s monthly support. Mugo is thankful for the $300.00 support he receives each month.

Ralph & Shirley Hagemeier, and Stephanie, Kalemie, Dem. Rep. of Congo:

Ralph Hagemeier writes that they believe in the Indigenous Principles of; self-supporting, self-propagating, and self-governing ministries. They have used these principles in their International Bible College, their Thibiti Elementary and Secondary Schools where there are now 1,200 day students, and their medical clinic. They are now building a church on their campus. One man just donated $900.00 for 50 sacks of cement. They are thankful for the growth of the Church and the privilege of working to accomplish the will of God.

Kalembelembe Bible Institute, Fizi, Dem. Rep. of Congo:

Director Eciba Ekyochi wrote that five students graduated out of a total of fourteen students in the Third Trimester 2012-13. He stated that the students are seeking the Lord in morning prayers, chapel, and dormitory devotions. They went out to preach in different churches for one week. We are praising the Lord that he provided $953.00 support for the salaries for the instructors and staff for the Third Trimester. In addition, $350.00 was sent to buy a used computer to make notes for the students. Eciba is thankful for the support he received for the Third Trimester. Eciba is asking for $4,000 for a hip replacement when foreign doctors come in January. We are praying that the Lord will raise up more support for this worthy Bible school.

Ruth Scott Kellie, Molo, Kenya:

Kellie has retired from the Matumaini Children’s Center, where she was the founding director. She is happy for the $100.00 sent to help her with her pension.Wallace Njeru Kirigia, Igoji, Kenya: Kirigia is thankful for the $100 received. He and two other ministers have just returned from sixteen days of successful ministry among ten churches in Tanzania. The end-time message of going on to perfection was received so seriously. Kirigia is bishop of the New Covenant Ministries.
