My Dearly Beloved Brethren,
Greetings to you in the lovely name of Jesus Christ! It is He that is the light that lighteth every man and even now shineth into the midst of the darkness of man’s soul to illuminate and to translate us from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you even now; that the hand of His goodness might rest upon each and every one of you for we are assured that His thoughts toward us are for good and not evil.
It was but a short time that I was able to spend at home prior to leaving again for Africa via Prague. To be exact, three full days. Our trip to the Philippines was a very profitable one, both in the time and resources that we have had to expend there for the establishment and the advancement of this word of perfection and sonship. There has been much that has already been shared concerning it, so with regard to that trip, I would want to share one thought, or maybe I should say a revelation that was given to me while we were there. That revelation is the understanding of the treasure we have in the children; investing in the children is a gold mine. I do not know why I have been so slow to grasp the reality of what it is that God desires to do amongst them as well as in them. We had no less than 25 children in every meeting that we had and sometimes the number would be somewhere around 50. I could see and sense that many of them have a hunger for the reality of God. I am asking those of you who feel that they have the calling of an intercessor to begin to pray that God would give us the resources, spiritually, mechanically, humanly, as well as economically, to accomplish that which needs to be done. It is not just an item to put on your prayer list to pray about, but I believe that we need to press the battle to the gate so that the gates of hell cannot prevail against our demand for the righteous will of the Father concerning this issue to be accomplished.
Pertaining to the thought of finances, I believe that the Lord is coming to this people of the end time who have been given the blessing of having the wisdom and the knowledge of God… which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life. It is now that we must step up to the plate to accomplish that which was ordained from the beginning for this end time. The Holy Place people are a people like unto a certain young man who came to Jesus; we are told the result of that meeting in Matthew 19:16-24. The young man was sincere and dedicated to the principles of righteousness. He had achieved much and no doubt much of it was through sacrifice and an expenditure of his own life and being. Yet in spite of that, there was one thing he lacked. We as a people are as that young man, and behold, the hour of our proving is now upon us. Will we, as the young man, go away sad and miss the blessing of perfection and the God-likeness that is now being offered to us? There was a word that was loosed to the Holy Place church at the Czech Conference and it is found in Haggai 1:4-5, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your ceiled houses, and this house lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. It is time for us to individually, as well as collectively, to not only consider our ways, but come to a conclusion as to whether we are going to be in or out.
My journey this time started on the 16th of March arriving in Prague in the early evening on the 17th. I spent most of the day Sunday arranging my suitcases to accommodate the books and material that I would be taking to Africa. I began the journey to Kampala, Uganda on Monday afternoon taking off from Prague at 2PM. I would travel via Amsterdam to Nairobi, Kenya where I would have to go through customs to collect my bags. Things went relatively smooth. I had no problem acquiring the transfer visa, collecting my luggage, and finding the right place to check back in for my flight to Uganda. The city that would be my port of entry for this country is Entebbe. There are only two flights to Uganda form Nairobi; one in the morning, which was too early for me to make with my morning arrival. The other flight is early evening or late afternoon which makes for a very long day. This is where I am at present writing this account.
I find it very interesting that God is bring this message of hope, redemption, and resurrection to places in the world where there has been great shedding of innocent blood. Uganda, as do most of these African countries that we are going to, has a very bloody history that is full of unbelievable atrocities that have been perpetrated against the people by a Godless, malignant Darkness that has as its objective the desecration and eradication of anything that shows the reality of the Light.
Well, I suppose that this about wraps it up for me at this point of this leg of my journey. I want to say thank you to all of you who are working with us in the Gospel and the spreading of this good news of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. I, like one of my predecessors in whose shadow I stand, exhort you, brethren, by that coming to make your calling and election sure.
May God bless you,
