Many of you know that we have been working with Sister Pauline in West Africa since the early 80’s. In all of the years that Rev. Agnes I Numer, Omer Jeffrey and others from our ministry traveled to this village they have never had water from a well. People had to carry water for up to two hours one way to bring water from the river. It has been this way from the beginning of time.
Just take a minute to think about that. Spend 4 hours of your day, every day to fetch and purify water…
But God… We are so excited! And this is what we want to share with you! Now, after many years of prayers, several donors joined together to give toward putting a well on Sister Pauline’s land. Sister Pauline and those around her can finally have fresh clean water! Just last week, the well project was started! Take a look:
We praise God for His goodness and provision! Sister Pauline has told us that the people are in awe at how this happened. They cannot understand where this money came from. She tells them, “It is Jesus” The eyes of the people have been further opened to His Love by this event.
Family, this is an open door for Christ to be ministered, for souls to find the love of Jesus. Let’s keep praying for God’s will to be done and His Kingdom to come here on earth through Sister Pauline and the ministry there in West Africa.
On the other side of the world, congratulations to Rev. Patricia Capwell and Institute for Foundational Learning (IFL) for 25 years of demonstrating God’s Love in Action! Rev. Pat has established numerous schools in the Philippines and in many Asian countries. She along with her dedicated team have helped alleviate the circumstances of impoverished individuals by making education, medical and malnutrition resources accessible, as well as providing training in agriculture and other areas.
When the 171 tons of wheat was donated to the Philippines in 1989, Rev. Numer took a team with her to see the wheat and distribute it to the people. Rev. Capwell was a part of that team. She remained there and committed her life to the people of the Philippines and Asia.
We know many would like to attend this event and we would like for you to know that we will all be represented in the Philippines and will bring gifts and greetings of this major landmark. Look for photos and an update about that event soon when our team returns.
We are talking again about having an Appreciation dinner toward the end of the year we extend our invitation to our pastors and sponsors and share with you the direction we feel God is bringing us. Thank you for your love, for just taking the time to read this post.
God’s richest blessings as we all continue to walk in His anointing and presence. Be encouraged with this word: Colossians 3:12-17 King James Version (KJV)
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Colossians 3:12-17
We love you,
From those of us here at home.
