Peace and Hope in Jesus
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the Glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Hello friends, I wanted to share with you all the great things the Lord has been doing around the world. The peace and hope that’s found only in Christ, has been shared and blessed upon people from all tribes & nations across the globe!
In Pakistan the team have seen a big rise in those repenting, coming to know Jesus & getting baptized! This has encouraged all of us as a body of Christ. Also, the pastoral training continues to run each Month, as well as the discipleship training. We continue to free families from the brick kilns and bless the persecuted church with finance and support. The team have been ministering in villages and towns afar too, encouraging the body of Christ with the Word and sharing meals together. Despite the harshness of sharia law, the Power of Jesus is unmatched and unstoppable in this nation.

In Taiwan, we are focusing on evangelism and youth discipleship training. I’ve been spending a bit of time here and seeing first-hand that the next generation is a key focus for us to echo the love of God. Many changes have taken place for the best outcome to be achieved in delivering the gospel in idol worshipping towns and areas. Please continue to pray for this nation. In the short time we have been here we have seen many Buddhists turn to Christ and be baptized. We also have been helping relationships get back together, providing counseling for families going through hardships. Seeing first-hand the work of God in their lives has been amazing.
In Ghana the team continues with pastoral training, and other outreach programs with Bible distributions and helping the poor.

In Malawi the three locations are going well with pastoral training, And the education centers are blessing so many people with free life skills learning. The farming course especially has helped the local farmers to better their harvesting and plantations.

In Burundi the courses/life skills programs at the education Centre continue to run with many students applying. The pastoral training and crusades are going very well across the regions, and we always get asked to do more and more each month! We thank God for the spiritual hunger the people have. Please pray also for the poverty and the physical hunger people go through day-to-day.
In Uganda pastoral training is booked until the end of 2023! To see this nation which only has been running 5 to 6 months, be fully booked with the hunger of youth leaders, elders and pastors is so encouraging. We know the enemy has been manifesting, as We have had many attacks including some pastors being beaten/or killed. Even new Christian converts have been kicked out of the villages or towns and beaten. We have helped them with accommodation, food and providing encouragement. Whilst I was there, we held a big crusade in an Islamic area where a pastor was killed for leading 6 Muslims to Christ. The Lord provided & arranged to move the widow, 12 kids to a safer location & provided a land & house for them. They were so encouraged to see the Work of God in their lives despite the tragedy that took place.
In New Zealand the team continues to worship and encourage people on the streets. Providing free haircuts in our trailer, hot cooked meals to the homeless/or those struggling, and furniture for those who cannot afford it. Through all these activities the team continue to preach the gospel praying for them and telling them the good news of Jesus Christ. They have been visiting motels where people have been living there due to shortage of houses and providing entertainment for the kids singing and dancing to Jesus music and having a fun time. Also cooking for them hot meals and getting them warm clothes/blankets. The families have been so thankful to the Lord and team for bringing some relief during their hardships.
