Tuesday Thoughts March 25, 2014
I am so grateful to the Lord for calling Pam and I to be a part of His Kingdom work in this hour.
One of the challenging things we must do to accomplish our assignment is raise money. Because of the interdenominational focus of what we do, there is no one single denomination or ministry group that funds our work. Everything we do is completely underwritten by friends and partners from all walks of life. We have individuals, churches and businesses that make what we do in the nations much easier.
Every nation we enter, we make every attempt to work with churches of all denominations. Some of them are Assemblies of God, some Church of God; some Methodist, Baptist and many Independent pastors and churches. If they preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified, risen, and coming again, they are our brothers and sisters and we are happy to work with them. We especially are grateful to work with pastors fellowship groups in the different towns and villages. Our mandate is to strengthen the local churches, not divide them to build our ministry.
None of these men and women, churches and groups are able to fund the Pastors Trainings, Leaders Conferences and outreaches we do in places like Kenya, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Guyana and other countries we travel to. Your giving is not only a great encouragement to me and Pam you are blessing men and women across the continents that you will never be able to meet here on earth. But they will look you up in heaven and say “thank you for giving to Revival Now Ministries. I am here because of you”!
In just a few days, Shane Smith, Tim Williams and myself will travel back to Kenya for our April Kilgoris Pastors Training. We will also minister at the Pentecostal Assemblies of God Youth Camp in Kilgoris, and April 25-27 we will hold a weekend Conference and Revival Campaign in Isiolo, a small town north of Nairobi.
Your giving will also help us travel to Myanmar (Burma) in SE Asia June 8-16. We will be working with a Baptist pastor there who is also Kingdom minded and wants to build bridges in his area that will strengthen the local church.
Your giving is also helping us to continue to travel across the United States believing with local pastors and congregations for a fresh wind of God’s Spirit to touch our land.
We by no means believe we are the only ministry attempting to touch the nations. There are very many worthy ministries who are doing a great work for God in this hour. We even sow into some of them ourselves.
God has now called Pam and I to increase our activity and attention to the nations of the world. It’s time. It’s your time. It’s our time! It’s time for Jesus to shine and be made famous again in the earth for His goodness and mercy that leads all men to repentance. That takes a lot of time, a lot of energy…and a lot of money.
I say it often and with all sincerity: thank you for supporting our part of the Great Commission.
