December 2019


Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thank you for your faithful support of this missionary Bible teaching ministry.

The Birth Of Jesus Christ Was The Beginning Of The Fulfillment Of The Everlasting Covenant: “And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: let them have dominion ... So God created man in his Own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” (Genesis 2:26,27) “Forasmuch as you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, ... But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world.” (1 Peter 1:18-20) “They that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation 17:8) “According as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world.” (Ephesians 1:4) In order for us to comprehend the so-great salvation that God has perfected for us, we need to understand that it is God who has covenanted with Himself to accomplish His purposes, that His grace has brought us into this covenant relationship, that He knows the end from the beginning, that He cannot fail to achieve His goals for us, and that this is an everlasting covenant that will never end. When God purposed in Himself to create a people for His glory, it was before He created this world. It was before there was sin in this world. It was before man fell into sin. In other words, God knew us before were ever conceived. He knew who were going to be saved, and who would go on to live with Him for eternity. “But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear head, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9) Joseph Mugo, Omega Pentecostal Churches, Kenya: Praise the Lord for the wonderful annual youth conference at the Coast that lasted for seven days from December 2 to 9. The Lord blessed so wonderfully the more than 300 young people who attended from the Omega Pentecostal Churches and other churches! The theme was, Digging the Old Wells Again. Many were fulled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in new tongues for the first time. Others prophesied. There was much dancing and rejoicing in the Spirit. Several youngsters accepted the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior. The Lord is visiting His people again! Samwel Ratanga, Pentecostal Free Church, Migori, Kenya: The cathedral was dedicated on December 13, 2019. Congratulations to the members of the Nyamware Mission who have banded together over many years since the foundation of this church about 1972. They should have great pride in what they have been able to accomplish. May God bless His work at Nyamware Mission, in Migori Suna. Community of the Assemblies of God in Africa, Assemblies of God Bible College, Bukavu, Congo: The director, Aoci Ebongya, reports that the First Trimester 2019-20 finished with twenty-five students. The AGBC is well reputed by sister Bible colleges of other communities in Bukavu. It has more students, even though it has no permanent buildings. Funds were sent to pay teachers, staff, and to provide tea for the students. Mukumo Jean-Pierre, the assistant head of CADAF, has overseen the finish of construction of a retaining wall to strengthen the foundation of the offices. Masangu Lwanyeke, Church of the Good Shepherd, Congo: Masangu writes that he has been ministering in Lubumbashi, the capital of Katanga Province. He has been preaching at the Bethel Church, where he held a women’s seminar. Wallace Njeru, Sonship Ministry Church, Igoji, Kenya: Njeru is very thankful for the support for his ministry. He is planning to go for a mission in Tanzania. Samuel Chibini, Matumaini Children’s Center, Molo, Kenya: Pastor Samuel thanks us for the funds that were sent for a medical examination for his wife. A large mass was found in her stomach. The operation to remove the mass took about five hours. The mass has been sent for examination. His wife, Mary, came home after one week of rest under doctor’s care. Samuel writes that he has no words to express his gratitude. May our Lord God bless you and your family abundantly. My wife can smile and have hope again. Thank you for Your Prayers and Financial Support: Thank you for your prayerful support for this missionary Bible teaching ministry.
