Dear Pastors, Donors & Prayer Partners: Greetings in the Name of Jesus.
“If ye have fa
ith as a grain of mustard seed,
nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matt. 17:20.
 
At the end of the conversation a spokesman for the group shared
these words … “Are
you just talking? For we had a missionary from a foreign country who stayed with us 4 years,never built a church and then he went back to America
… it’s been more than 22 years, and we
are still waiting for him to return.
Anita and I were flabbergasted. Another African man cameforward, we found out he was the chief of the tribe. He said to me:
Br. John, if you come withme this afternoon, I will show you something
.”
To our amazement, he showed us two vehiclesfrom America, parked side by side with a fence which enclosed the vehicles to protect themfrom animals rubbing against them, and from people destroying the
missionary’s
property.He gave me a long hard look, and said these words:
“Don’t do this to us again … we loved that man and his wife, the question we ask ourselves regularly…
what did we do to hurt or offend 
them?” 
We promised him that we would do something,
and we did … We did not put 
up thetent, but we did purchase building material and built 4 large classrooms, school type buildingwith wall partitions that could be opened and closed accordingly. This building served as achurch on weekends, school and medical clinic during the week 
and a general gathering placefor council meetings. We dedicated this building, with a new pastor who had graduated fromBible School, who was from that area. To God be the glory
souls are saved, after more than 20years the work is still growing (as far as we know those two vehicles are still there in the field).
 
It was just about that time that a large sugar refining corporation bought the landnear the church. The company hired employees; The pastor went to apply for a job to helpwith finances for the church and his family. After several years, Pastor Ezekiel was promoted totraining personnel. (Pastor Ezekiel could read, write and was good at mathematics) He put thenew employees through the paces, training them to manage their respective work stations.Pastor Ezekiel toured the factory daily
to troubleshoot any problems that arose. In manyinstances he would put his hand on their shoulder and pray for them.His church grew, the farmer who sold the property to the refinery, returned severalyears later and shared with Pastor Ezekiel, (when he saw the growth and development of thecongregation)
we are going to build a bigger church, to accommodate all the members andvisitors
.Pastor Ezekiel is a result of God
s saving grace, the evidence of the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and the vision that the Holy Spirit gave him
. God never promised us riches
 but in faithfulness, success
Extending the Kingdom.

when we arrived at the farm. The farmer told us that the African people were unhappy - would we pleasespeak to th
em, I was glad to … The people a
