One Hundred+ (100+) Bible Mandate
One Hundred+(100+) Bible Mandate
One Hundred+ Bible Mandate
It has just recently come to our notice out from Kenya. We have received a request for one hundred (100) Bibles for a ministry in Kenya. They are requesting and seeking Bibles in both their Mother tongue (Swahili 50 Units) and also in English (50 Units).
If possible we would appreciate every and all available assistance. We know that the Word of God is also God’s Handbook (Life”s Manual). Scripture reminds us the Word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a Light for our Path.
From our correspondence we have found out there is a great hunger for God’s Word throughout Kenya and East Africa. I found this out during last year after I returned from my 5-nation SADC Ministry Tour, with Bob Koo of Fresh Living Water Ministries in April.
Immediately on my return, I received a call from a Bishop Wilberforce Muhindi of New Covenant of Jesus Ministries, Kisumu, Bungoma County, Kenya. They invited me to attend as the main speaker at their Christian Leaders and Women’s Conference during August. Due to financial constraints, I was unable to visit them.
Meanwhile, they had spoken with me i.c.w their Youth & Rehabilitation Centre. They wanted me to take up this challenge during last year as well. Until date, I have put it on hold as I am unable to fulfil their mandate. We regularly pray for them, for the Lord’s Will to be made manifest. We believe the Lord is busy establishing His Kingdom in Kenya as an International, Major, Ministry, Media and Revival Centre in Kenya.
During the course of this month (February 2019), they invited me to visit them during December this year D.V. Further Wilberforce indicated that he needs to see us and discuss their ministry plans. Presently we are unable to accommodate him with a venue and a place to stay. We have spoken with some of the leadership of I Am Global Ministries, awaiting an answer.
Please consider supporting and praying with us in this matter. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated. We have also received a request for Urdu Bibles for Pakistan. Pray with us for our Lord’s Provision & His Supernatural, Holy Spirit filled intervention in Jesus (Yeshuah’s) Name! Amen!
Together in The Lord’s Harvest

A Great Storm
2021 January 16
A Great Storm
“And there arose a great storm” (Mar_4:37).
Some of the storms of life come suddenly: a great sorrow, a bitter disappointment, a crushing defeat. Some come slowly. They appear upon the ragged edges of the horizon no larger than a man’s hand, but, trouble that seems so insignificant spreads until it covers the sky and overwhelms us.
Yet it is in the storm that God equips us for service. When God wants an oak He plants it on the moor where the storms will shake it and the rains will beat down upon it, and it is in the midnight battle with elements that the oak wins its rugged fiber and becomes the king of the forest.
When God wants to make a man He puts him into some storm. The history of manhood is always rough and rugged. No man is made until he has been out into the surge of the storm and found the sublime fulfillment of the prayer: “O God, take me, break me, make me.”
A Frenchman has painted a picture of universal genius. There stand orators, philosophers and martyrs, all who have achieved pre-eminence in any phase of life; the remarkable fact about the picture is this: Every man who is preeminent for his ability was first pre-eminent for suffering. In the foreground stands that figure of the man who was denied the promised land, Moses. Beside him is another, feeling his way– blind Homer.
Milton is there, blind and heart-broken. Now comes the form of one who towers above them all. What is His characteristic? His Face is marred more than any man’s. The artist might have written under that great picture,
The beauties of nature come after the storm. The rugged beauty of the mountain is born in a storm, and the heroes of life are the storm-swept and the battle-scarred.
You have been in the storms and swept by the blasts. Have they left you broken, weary, beaten in the valley, or have they lifted you to the sunlit summits of a richer, deeper, more abiding manhood and womanhood? Have they left you with more sympathy with the storm-swept and the battle-scarred? — Selected
The Tree God Plants
The Tree God Plants
The wind that blows can never kill
The tree God plants;
It bloweth east, it bloweth west,
The tender leaves have little rest,
But any wind that blows is best.
The tree that God plants
Strikes deeper root, grows higher still,
Spreads greater boughs, for God’s good will
Meets all its wants.
There is no storm hath power to blast
The tree God knows;
No thunderbolt, nor beating rain,
Nor lightning flash, nor hurricane;
When they are spent, it doth remain,
The tree God knows,
Through every tempest standeth fast,
And from its first day to its last
Still fairer grows.
The Lord Knows the Righteous
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law does he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water that brings forth its fruit in its season, and its leaf shall not wither, and all that he does shall prosper. The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked shall perish.
(Psa 1:1-6 AFV)
