A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

The World – In the last days people will be lovers of themselves, January 8, 2023

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves…” (2 Timothy 3:1-2)

Received January 8th, 2023.

    “The disrespectfulness in my life has got out of hand. It’s amazing to watch how people you think you know can treat each other like literal garbage when they don’t get what they want or are afraid of losing someone or something. They walk all over each other, call names, speak rudely, watch other people break you down and do nothing. I cannot imagine saying you love someone and letting this happen. People constantly tell me to calm down and stress less. How can I? Not only is this happening to me, it’s happening to others as well around me. Sad part is what do you do? Do you hope it gets better? Do you walk away? Do you hope that by leading by example someone or anyone will change?”
Response January 8th, 2023

    “We were created by a loving God that wants everyone to be a part of His family that will spend eternity loving Him and each other. Jesus confirmed that by becoming like us and confirmed His commitment and plan through His birth, life, death and resurrection. For those of us that accept His gift are given the Holy Spirit which gives us love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The battle we are in is with our flesh that Satan convinces is god and that we will decide what is best for ourselves. We don’t need a God that would complicate us getting what we want, when we want it and how we get it. The devil was created by God for the purpose to steal, kill and destroy our opportunity to know God and His love and purpose for our being because Satan will never have that so he wants everyone that was created in the image of the true and loving God to not believe the truth and spend eternity in the darkness alone with him.

     God’s Word says that in the last days, before He creates the new heaven and earth where He will spend the rest of eternity with those that by faith have chosen to love Him and love others – that everyone else will have reached a decision to only love themselves. When everyone sees this happening we know Jesus will be coming soon to fulfill the promise that He has for a new future that will only have those that believe in loving Him and loving others. We have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control so others can see they also could choose to live that way. But it comes with the truth that it opposes our natural selfishness and most people will agree with Satan and want to kill us because they have no true peace. Jesus said consider it joy when people ridicule and persecute you because they see Jesus in you and He will bless you with the eternal promise of life in and through Him, forever and ever. So we live by faith, being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we can not see. He will never leave us or forsake us. Eternity is not a destination, it is Christ in us, who is eternal life and gives us peace that surpasses our understanding.”

    “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels or demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height or depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

(Romans 8:35, 37-39)


Africa – Kaliro baptisms, January 8, 2023

We received this testimony this morning from Pr. Kennedy, who coordinates ministry in central Uganda in Africa. After starting door-to-door evangelism in this district outside of Kampala, Uganda, the Lord prompted him to help them start a church fellowship.

   “Today we had the 52nd baptism event since 3rd, November, 2021 when we started Lake Kyoga Harvest Church Fellowship -Kaliro.  It’s a joy seeing people giving their lives to Jesus Christ every other week and baptisng them after every Sunday service. Now days, the community named us “THE CHURCH THAT BAPTISES.” because after every Sunday service, we all go down to the lake singing songs and baptise the new believers of the week. So people named the church “THE CHURCH THAT BAPTISES”.  It’s a blessing to baptise all these believers in Kaliro being that there is a very big heretic cult that denies baptism by immersion in water. They say it ended with the apostles, so claim our generation gets baptised by the Holy Spirit alone. We baptise people in water and Jesus Christ baptises them with the Holy Spirit and Fire.”

Pr. Kennedy


The World– Three sisters testimonies, January 4, 2023

We are thankful for the prayers of all the saints and the many miracles of divine intervention that we have witnessed over the years. We have been in prayer for three of our longtime sisters that have had significant roles in the over-all ministry of Harvest Vision and would like to share the testimonies as of today.

     Martha Castillo who has been instrumental in much of our ministry to families in apartment complexes, migrant camps and recently to prepare herself for her upcoming ministry to children in Africa has had some problems with her heart that required surgery today. It went well and she is expected home tomorrow. She will recoup and then be back to finish earning the money needed to finish the orphanage in Africa before she goes there herself to do the ministry the Lord has called her to do.

     Olivia, who along with her husband, Miguel, coordinate Harvest Vision in Mexico was diagnosed with a tumor in her abdomen months ago and finally received the biopsy results today. No cancer and she will be meeting with the surgeon on Friday to determine the forward plan to remove the tumor. Olivia has been involved with many people from Washington through the mission trips to Mexico and has been in Washington with family and friends many times over the years to support local ministry in our community.

     Cecilia, who has been our co-laborer on the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico/Arizona was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and has been taking a regimen of treatment including surgery, radiation and currently chemotherapy. She is seeing positive results and will finish the treatments until she in remission or the side effects become to severe. She is positive and filled with the joy and peace of the Lord which is the result of her love and faith in Jesus Christ since the time of her salvation years ago. We met and began doing ministry with her in Mexico and over the years on the Navajo Reservation and she has been a frequent guest here in Washington.      


Africa – December salvations, January 4, 2023

    We just received these three testimonies from our co-laborers in Burundi, eastern Uganda and the DRCongo from their outreach missions in December that witnessed 1,495 saved. We summarized the report from Burundi but wanted to share the others just the way we received them. Thank you for your prayers and support of these and the other six coordinators that haven’t shared their testimonies yet. 

    Burundi – Six 3-day outreaches in six different provinces in December with 842 saved and 76 new believers baptized. All of these new believers are being discipled by local believers in local church families. Pastor Evariste 

Glory goes back to God who enabled us through your support to carry out the following kingdom missions:
1-On 6/12/2022 and 7/12/2022 we organized a crusade at Nsono trading centre, Buyinja subcounty Namayingo district. Many churches participated and 54 souls besides children confessed Christ as Lord.   The area pastors took the responsibility of follow up and discipling new souls.
2-On 8/12/2022 we had house to house evangelism in Nsono East village Buyinja subcounty Namayingo district and converted 15 souls.
3-From 12/12/2022 to 14/12/2022 we had a youth camp at Kifuyo primary school, Buyinja subcounty Namayingo district. The youths were empowered with different practical skills like making reusable sanitary pads for adolescent girls. This brought in some youths who were not yet born again who were in turn exposed to the gospel of love. 94 youths got saved. They were handed in the hands of pastors for follow up and discipleship.
4-On 21/12/2022 and 22/12/2022 We had Harvest School of Ministry training sessions at Bulamba Elim church Namayingo town council equipping ministers for effective ministry.
5- From 28/12/2022 to 30/12/2022 we had marriage and youth workshops establishing the marrieds and empowering the youths. We also had kids evangelism and discipleship. This took place at Harvest Church Fellowship Syanyonja, Buyinja subcounty Namayingo district.
2 couples and 18 kids joined the kingdom.
We now have our outreach workplan for this 2023 and we believe the Lord will give us the sufficient grace to accomplish it.
Thanks for the support.
