A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

Africa – Multitudes in the valley of decision, January 15, 2023

    “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:14)

    We are thankful for the Harvest Kids that will be adding their donations to the money needed to complete the classrooms at the Harvest Doves primary school in Kayunga, Uganda. Since they built the school last year, starting with 30 students, many Muslim families in that community have now asked for their children to be able to attend. We now have 180 students to primary 5. They have graduated and the new 6th grade students will move into the new classrooms. The Harvest Kids still need over $1,000 to finish the extra classrooms and then the money needed to relocate the toilets. They would appreciate your support. Please come to Harvest Kids the 2nd & 4th Saturdays from 11am-1:30pm or stop in at 14799 Avon Allen Road in Mt. Vernon.

Call 360-421-8811 for information.

    We just received the testimonies of our co-laborers for 2022 that have been doing mostly door-to-door ministry these last two years. They also do outreach ministry using the equipment donated by co-laborers from the USA and they are biblically obligated (1 Samuel 30:18-25) to share the fruit of the ministry directly related to the use of the equipment. That ended the year in the form of 292 outreaches and 22,732 saved that are now being discipled in local church families. We also would like to share that a co-laborer in Tennessee and his church family recently donated the money to have made a 250 person mobile tent that will be used at one of the new church plants. After the church family can build a small structure, the tent will be moved to the next location.

   We thank everyone for their prayers and support of our co-laborers in South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Burundi and the DRCongo these last 17 years. Multitudes, multitudes have now been sent out of their “valley of decision” by denying themselves, picking up their cross daily and following Jesus to find others that are still lost.


USA – Harvest Kids, CEF, Friends on the Streets, January 14, 2023

Many thanks to Jeanette and Connie from Child’s Evangelism Fellowship that came to share with all of us Harvest Kids, both young and old. They are truly a blessing and their message always encourages us in our journey of faith. Their message today was on prayer as simply and powerfully as it can be taught from 1 Thessalonians 5:17 – “Pray continually”. After sharing their message, Mama Linda had prepared an “African” lunch and it was a blessing to have Catherine from Kenya here to sit with the kids during the meal. After crushing some of the cans that have been collected, the kids counted the money that had been donated to help finish the classrooms they are building for the Harvest Doves primary school in Uganda. They had already sent $1,000 and now have $193 dollars, still trusting God for the remaining ~$1,100 needed to finish the painting and sealing. Afterwards, the kids and everyone helped make up bags of toiletries, to go along with the backpacks, blankets, clothing and items to take to our friends that live on the streets of Mount Vernon. That included hot chocolate and coffee, the right hand of fellowship given with the love of Jesus and prayer. What a beautiful day to be the hands and feet of Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit and representing the Father’s heart for all His Children, old and young alike. 


USA – Everyday, January 14, 2023

 This morning we will be meeting with the Harvest Kids that come together to share the love of Jesus with one another and reach out to the broken hearted and crushed in spirit vulnerable and orphaned children in Africa. We thank everyone that sacrifices to meet these needs by donating aluminum cans and themselves to disciple these young believers. Today we have friends that live in our local recovery houses that will come and help the kids as we go out to share that same love to our “friends on the streets” in downtown. The Garden of Eden family ministry has been established as a safe, non-threatening environment to meet the needs of those in our community. Thanks to those that come for a time of worship when all the tables are filled with blankets, toiletries, clothes and food for those in need; build pallets for the goats in the petting zoo; welcome new friends to join in worship; play Twister with the kids; prepare items to distribute to those in need; work in the garden; build a greenhouse and help take care of the animals in the petting zoo.
“Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden, and there he put the man he had formed to work it and take care of it.” (Genesis 2:8, 15)
