Joseph and Emily return to Africa this week in October 2015!
We could use any support that God lays upon your heart! We provided over 100 pair of shoes to children; as well as other gifts! Many are so very thankful and very excited for gifts of Bibles, story books, paper, pens and especially any clothes! Some times they just need cash to help their families with the necessities of life! In the mountains and the villages are many children who are living in a grass huts with dirt floors, no lights, and no clean water! This causes diseases and too often death, even to the young and old alike. There is much unspoken with words, except in their eyes of is another story… in the midst of the people of Ethiopia! Rich is their faith in God in some ways, but lacking knowledge of how to walk in Freedom of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior!
Joseph and Emily return to Africa this October 2015! We are ministering in Addis Ababa and Lalibela, Ethiopia for about 4 weeks.
In November 2015 we are flying south to Blantyre, Malawi to minister, evangelize and teach for another 3 weeks!
At the end of November we will return to Addis Ababa, where we will minister at the refuge church!
We are looking forward to ministering with all these amazing men and women of God in their beautiful country!
November and December 2014!!
God’s Plans in Africa has been spoken to us by God the Father, confirmed by Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit is our guide. We obeyed His Word and by faith we made the arrangements for this trip. Praise His Holy name! The Lord gave us specific dates when and also, where He wants us to go. We walk by faith and trust God! Alelulia! Jesus will be lifted up and will draw all men unto Him! Many will be healed and delivered as Jesus sets the captives free! Whom Jesus sets free, is free in deed! All for God’s Glory and because He loves people of all nations!
We share the stories of Jesus in the Bible and many believed in God! Even now, they continue to pray and be born again and have a new way of life! Will you pray and ask God what He wants for His precious children? Will you join us by giving gifts to help them to have ways of hope for a better future? Please give, so they too may even be able to enjoy some Heaven on this earth?
We are very thankful for your obedience to the Holy Spirit as He puts upon your heart the needs of the African nation. We are very thankful for your prayers as we continue to reach out to a new generation and bring gifts from our Heavenly Father! Most of all, we are thankful for you!
We trust God will bless you exceedingly, abundantly more than you could ask or think…..just because He loves you; but also, because you cared for others! May your Joy be full and may you have the peace that surpasses all understanding! May you enjoy God’s Love towards you and His presence all around you! In Jesus Holy name! Alelulia!
Amen and Amen.
Images, so many images!
This is what we bring back from our recent trip in October, November, December 2015 to Ethiopia and Malawi, Africa. We captured so many images on camera and video. There were so many countless images that were so precious and left within our hearts. It seems that every where we went, curiosity raised up about us and about God Almighty. No matter who we spoke with about God, they seemed so interested as if there was a longing in their heart for the truth. Anything that could help their life get along better is what we shared with young and old and those who were seeking truth and understanding. Alleluia!
When we started teaching about the gospel of Jesus, there was a great hunger to hear more. Such an intensity of tuning in to God’s message. They desired to learn how to have a relationship with Jesus or how to have a greater, deeper, richer closeness with their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Praise His Holy name!
We wanted to leave them with a seed that could change their life forever, so they also may change other peoples life forever. We told people every where we ministered: "Be still and know He is God. Listen to Him! What is the Lord saying to you? How is HE directing your life?” and "How can God talk through you by speaking by His Spirit?” Isaiah 55: 9 "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
We would teach them how to get a hold of God’s thoughts and God’s ways in their own life. After all, we can share what God is saying through prophecy to them; but when we leave, they need to hear what God is saying to them for themselves and their family, for their churches and gatherings of God’s people.
Some of the images that could not be recorded happened in the moment. We experienced so much of God’s Love that it exposed people’s hearts. So much hurt hidden deep in their hearts. We have images now recorded in our memory of their broken hearts and wounded spirits as they cried out to God. Other times, we were ministering to individuals by prophecy and praying for healing. We rejoiced with the sons and daughters of God who were excited as they received their healing and their encouragement by the Holy Spirit.
In most of our meetings, was a deep honor and reverence to God Almighty through worship and singing unto the Lord. The Harvest was ripe and God was Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end! We all stood in awe at the magnificence of our Heavenly Father. Their is no God like our God! Praise His Holy name! Alleluia!
Emily and I called this young boy and the little deaf girl to the back side of the small building to pray privately with them, not to be distracted. Never the less, the other children were curious and came around the corner to watch! We asked David, our guide and new friend, to record this miracle on film.
As we prayed for the little girl, God opened her ears! Alleluia! At first just a little bit as we pressed in and trusted God for His Word, we watched in awe as her little eyes lit up and her smile gleamed with Joy!! It was obvious she was hearing for the first time in her life!!
Glory to God! What an awesome God we serve! Angels bow before Him, Heaven and Earth adore Him! HE cares for the precious little children with His everlasting loving kindness! He did it because HE loves these children so much! Read more about this miracle …
Ethiopia and Malawi, Africa in October and November 2015
This was a different adventure with Joseph and Emily, but still led by the Holy Spirit as the Lord directed our steps!
In third world countries the sight is all too common to see the children with bare feet or their plastic sandals torn and worn out and the same clothes worn for a week or more! But that is not what we would see or you will see as you look into the faces of these little children with a smile from their hearts and something deep within their eyes that shows new hope!
We witnessed life changing of children and adults making new commitments to the Lord Jesus Christ! We stood in awe at our magnificent God as He caused the deaf to hear, the lame to walk, and the captives to be set free as they received Jesus as their Lord and Savior!
Ministering at Baby Orphanage Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Joseph and Emily and our driver
(also, named Joseph) visited the
Baby Orphanage at the Catholic
Church today. We prayed for all
the babies to be healed and they
would each have a family adopt
We spent most of the day with all
the babies, toddlers and children
in three different rooms. Nun
Sister Kamila joined us also.
She came to the church to care
for the babies when she was 23
years old and has been there 51
years now. The Love of God flows
through her and they all love
her as much as she loves them.
Road trip countryside Lalibella
More information coming soon!
As we were entering the building there was a young 9 year old boy who could hear, but he was mute. His tongue was very swollen. Our taxi driver Joseph is Ethiopian, but now he is a born again Christian and has been helping the babies and Nuns for years by visiting and bringing gifts for the children. We all three agreed as our Joseph was praying. We watched in amazement as the swelling on his tongue went down. He was a little shy and just kept playing with his toy and looking around. All Glory to God!
The 14 year old boy in the crib is named "Baby" and he cannot speak, nor eat for himself and cannot sit up, but only lay there. Baby is crippled and we prayed that God will strengthen and heal his body. Since last year, it seems he is now lifting his left arm a little higher.
So much more we could share, but pictures tell the story better.
As we were leaving the church compound... again we were delight- fully surprised when the 9 year old boy came running up to us and hugged us and would not let go! He had a big smile on his face, instead of that sad look... because God truly touched his heart and his body too! What an amazing God we all serve! All Glory to His name!
