Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thank you for your support of this missionary Bible teaching ministry.
God Is Pronouncing Judgment on the Rebellion of This Age:
“By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world,” (Hebrews 11:7) As we see the whole world rebelling against their Creator, we are beginning to sense the rumblings of divine judgment which the Word of God says will come on this world in these last days. When we see this judgment coming, our first concern is for the salvation of our house, for our children, for all those who we know, that they might be saved from the destruction that is coming. “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.” (Romans 8:18,19) Noah spent his life preparing his ark. The ark that God is preparing to save His people out of judgment and into the glory of His presence is to manifest us as a son or daughter of God. This manifestation is the culmination of a life of grace. This is a position that requires us to experience completely the fruit, the gifts, and the ministries of the Holy Spirit in our lives. May we enter into our ark, or complete salvation, so that we may be saved from judgment in the Day of the Lord. Joseph Mugo, Omega Pentecostal Churches, Kianyaga, Kenya:
The Lord willing, we would like to purchase land for the head quarters church of the Omega Pentecostal Church in Kianyaga by this September. Eight thousand dollars will be needed to buy a quarter of an acre of land. Mugo reports that $1,150.00 has been raised from local supporters already. So far, about $1,665.00 has been received from individuals and three churches in Canada and the United States for this project. Mugo writes that he has been busy going round to the churches and preaching and teaching the Word of God. Mugo writes that he has opened new churches in Kiangombe, and Tala in Ukambani. A church has just been opened in Nyandarwa County. In 1973, we put a roof on the original church in Kiangombe, which now has a beautiful limestone building.
Kalembelembe Bible Institute, Fizi, Dem. Rep. Of Congo:
Director Ekyoci Eciba writes that fifteen students finished the Third Trimester 2014/15. There was much excitement for the ten students who graduated in June. The graduates were thankful for the Bibles sent for them. Under the student’s ministry, one Muslim man and his whole household has received Jesus as their personal Savior. When Eciba went to visit them, he found their lives have been completely changed. They are giving their tithes and working in their local church. Would you help us to send $1,090 for the salaries of the four teachers, the secretary and the guard? Also would you help provide food for the students.
Ralph & Shirley Hagemeier and Stephanie, Kalemie, Dem. Rep. Of Congo:
Ralph writes that in 1963, he remembered Oral Roberts saying that, God made the earth out of NOTHING. Hebrews 11:3 says, The universe was formed at God’s command, so that what was seen WAS NOT MADE OUT OF WHAT WAS VISIBLE. That has worked for the Hagemeiers for 49 years. Time and time again they have seen God take what was insufficient and multiply it to meet their needs. God helped them to do MORE than they could see. God is able to do immeasurably MORE than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20) Going to the Congo in 2006, they needed $80,000. When one of their friends asked, How much do you have toward that? Two months before their departure, they had $2,000. That seed was there for a downpour. And so it was!
Community of the Assemblies of God of Africa (CADAF), Bukavu, Congo:
When the Willners were resident missionaries in the Congo from 1981 to 1984, they worked under the registration of CADAF. CADAF does not have any missionaries who are working directly with them now. $300 has been sent to buy a printer and generator for their national office in Bukavu, Congo. Also, $100 was sent to Buulu Msembwe for him to do a tour of their churches in Katanga Province. In 1981, '82, Buulu was my Swahili interpreter as I taught in Agape Bible Institute, and traveled among the churches close to Kalemie, Katanga, Congo.
Ruth Scott Kellie, founder Matumaini Children’s Center, Molo, Kenya:
