A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

USA – Unless the Lord builds the house, April 28, 2023

“Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain.” (Psalm 127:1) That”house” could mean a family, a friendship, a business, a fellowship center or a garden. We have set our minds and hearts to do only that which pleases the Lord. “In his heart a man sets his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9) Once that happens the battle belongs to the Lord and you follow His leading. Whether it is delivering a gift that a faithful brother buys for a widow, helping someone who has truck problems, weeding the blueberries and raspberries or replacing the old marrian berries with new ones.

What a blessing to witness the true church in action. “All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had. There were no needy persons among them.” (Act 4:32-34) “All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.”

(Acts 2:44-45)

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.”

(Romans 12:26-27)




USA – No one knows the day or hour, April 24, 2023

Jesus said, “His gospel will be preached to all the nations in the world and then the end will come.”
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations”
“You will receive the Holy Spirit and be My witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth.”
He is faithful and “there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed”.
Let us continue to seek the Lord’s leading in these last days.
We know that 2/3’s of the people on the earth are in a certain area called the 10/40 window, which is associated with the people that live between 10 degrees latitude and 40 degrees latitude north. 3 billion people unreached with the gospel in North Africa, the Middle East, China, India and the smaller countries around them. We need to pray and provide whatever help we can give to the laborers in these harvest fields. Almost all the nations and laborers we have been blessed to be in partnership with in the gospel are from Europe, central and southern Africa, North and South America and Australia with very little connection to these last day harvest fields and the few workers that are there.

Jesus commanded His disciples to open their eyes and look to the fields. They are ripe for harvest. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Pray to the Lord of the harvest to bring workers. He commanded us to pray for workers in all the harvest fields and that was over 2,000 years ago.   
While we do not know the time or day the trumpet will sound, we know it can only happen when the last person has been given their own personal opportunity to choose blessings or curses.
The fervent prayers of righteous people avail much.
We are without excuse because He said “ALL authority in heaven and on earth has been given to us!”
Let us continue to pray fervently for all nations that when Jesus is lifted up from the earth, all men will be drawn to Him to make their decision.
Be strong and courageous.


USA – No suitable helper, so God….., April 21, 2023

    “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a suitable helper for him.”

(Genesis 2:15, 18)

    After 45 years of marriage, God planted the Garden of Eden where we now live and serve the Lord.
    “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”

(Genesis 2:24) 




USA – Harvest Kids, April 21, 2023

     We are thankful for a beautiful day for the Harvest Kids to be meeting together. We have been blessed with many people donating cans the last two weeks so were only able to crush one large bag full before we went inside to count the donations that had been given to help finish the primary school in Uganda. The kids counted another $109, which leaves only $314 left to finish the sealing and painting for the new classrooms. We also have hamburger that was donated by a local farmer that is available for a $5/lb donation for the school. Please contact us if you are interested. Mama Odette was not able to play her guitar today but graciously led us all in worship and praise including using flags and tambourines. We sat on the floor and enjoyed an Africa meal under the photo of some of the children in Africa enjoying their meal the same way. What a blessing to have these young people understand how privileged we are to be born in this country, which kindles their desire to help them.

     Our verse for today was from Luke 6: Jesus said, “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Do to others as you would have them do to you.” It is amazing to hear the testimonies from the lips of these young disciples and hear them accept of not just helping their own friends, but extending that to anyone that is hurting. We were able to spend the remaining time we had together in the playground, the petting zoo and checking out the greenhouse and garden.
