Dear Friends and Partners in Christ,
First, I want to thank you all for your continued prayer and financial support. Your prayers for me are a shield in the
Spirit as well as battle plans for angelic realms. Thank you so much for participating with me. I long for more of God’s
love, power and glory to fall on all of you and your communities.This past 3 months has been wonderful, God opened many serving opportunities and it is a great joy for me to be partof what God is doing in this world. For two years now, God has put a heavy burden on my heart to help, equip, prayand serve along with Church leaders in remote villages here in Tanzania. I have travelled almost all country in townsand also to the most remote parts of the Country doing ministry (Evangelism, Discipleship etc) but for some reason myheart is so much attached to leaders in remote areas.
…Please breath in for a second and think about this,
“What do you expect the growth of the church to be if the Pastor doesn’t have a Bible?” not that they don’t want to have them but they can’t afford to have one…..while you are thinking on that here is another question……”Think about you being in a church where no one, NOONE…have a Bible in their hands?”
Most Church leaders in very remote areas of my Country are serving in a
very difficult environment….this environment hinders the growth of the
church in their areas. Research shows that many of this leaders have noteven completed 7
grade, they have very low understanding of the word of
God….yet, its hard for them to get Bibles and even it’s a mountain to climb
asking them to attend a seminary or a Bible school so they can getequipped.
Should we let this situation remain like this? If we won’t go, then who will?If we won’t act, then who will? What would have Jesus done
in His days?
Remember we are the hands and feet’s of Jesus in this world. So God has
put in my heart 2 main things to do.1.
Leadership Conferences: Since many Pastors/Church leaders inremote villages have very low understanding of the word of Godand cannot afford to go to seminary then the easiest way to helpthem is by taking conferences, seminars, training to their areas,where all Pastors from different villages gather and attend 2-3 daysretreat and Go back to their areas with something new and freshthat will help their ministries grow. I was able to be part in aLeadership conference in 3 areas this past month and we had leaders from almost 20 different denominationgather and get trained
—trust me one didn’t need to
have a degree to tell that there was real hunger for theword of God in this leaders hearts, most of the things were new to them and they left very challenged andstrong.2.
by providing Bibles: As I said earlier not only that most Church leaders don’t h
ave Bibles but also most
Christians, new believers don’t have Bibles and the biggest challenge it’s because Bibles are “very expensive”that they can’t afford. The price of a Bible here is 5$ but trust me
-5US $ may sound very little to you but most
reading his first Bible ever!!!
