RELEASING spiritual LEADERS to IMPACT our WORLD

Releasing Spiritual Leaders to Impact our World Harvest Kits Corn Grinders Bibles Extra Christmas Love Offering – Pastors Prayer Requests Our Mission Emphasis

Dear Pastors, Donors & Prayer Partners:

Greetings in the Name of Jesus.

“If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, … nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matt. 17:20. This picture was taken in Swaziland on a farmers 40,000 acre farm … The story goes – we were asked to survey the possibility of erecting a tent, to preach, build a church, placing a pastor… but things changed when we arrived at the farm. The farmer told us that the African people were unhappy - would we please speak to them, I was glad to … The people assembled in the field the next day and I put forth my proposition to them. 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 came forward, we found out he was the chief of the tribe. He said to me: “Br. John, if you come with me this afternoon, I will show you something.” To our amazement, he showed us two vehicles from America, parked side by side with a fence which enclosed the vehicles to protect them from 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 the tent, but we did purchase building material and built 4 large classrooms, school type building with wall partitions that could be opened and closed accordingly. This building served as a church on weekends, school and medical clinic during the week – and a general gathering place for council meetings. We dedicated this building, with a new pastor who had graduated from Bible School, who was from that area. To God be the glory – souls are saved, after more than 20 years 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 land near the church. The company hired employees; The pastor went to apply for a job to help with finances for the church and his family. After several years, Pastor Ezekiel was promoted to training personnel. (Pastor Ezekiel could read, write and was good at mathematics) He put the new 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 many instances 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 several years later and shared with Pastor Ezekiel, (when he saw the growth and development of the congregation) “we are going to build a bigger church, to accommodate all the members and visitors”. 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. _________________________________________________________________________________ Your Prayers and sacrificial giving to Missions, have made it possible that Pastor Ezekiel could reach out in this area and win precious souls … THANK YOU … GOD BLESS YOU ALL. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR PRAYER FAMILY.

Page 2 Our Mission Emphasis is
To serve the Indigenous Church in Africa. Our Method is to let God present a need . . . and for us to match it with passion to serve. Support for Christ For Africa Ministries comes from gifts by friends like you. We are not funded or endowed by any group or Corporation, as we are an Independent Faith Mission.

Field News: We have seen many reports of new converts mainly due to the massive outreach of our discipled students. Every district reports of baptisms, membership intake, pastors and their outreach teams have been conducting all night prayer meetings, praying for the villages and the outlying areas that have been touched in one way or another through the word of God. There is a revival that we cannot explain, we know it’s from the Lord as we hear the testimonies that congregations are growing by leaps and bounds. New converts rejoice when they come out of the baptismal waters, praising God for their obedience in following the Lord. Everywhere the Word is preached, churches are being planted, reaping the results of all night prayer vigils. Anita and I long for those days where we can see and experience firsthand, the great and mighty Hand of our Savior Jesus Christ in a very personal way. We stand amazed, for nothing, nothing, nothing shall be impossible to them that believe the word, trust the Holy Spirit and Get Up and GO to win the lost and bring in the Harvest!
