A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

Mexico & El Salvador– The value of a soul, priceless, September 15, 2021

We are thankful for our co-laborers in Mexico and El Salvador that continue to faithfully seize every opportunity to advance the gospel and prepare new believers to become true disciples of Jesus Christ. They need your prayers and support.

Olivia and Miguel,
who coordinate the ministry in Mexico, have been led to start a printing business in San Luis. This will allow them to meet the needs of their community in those services, build relationships with more people and provide finances to help meet their needs to expand the ministry. It is similar to the printing business that helps support Sergio & Gloria and their family as they coordinate the ministry in El Salvador.
We are in need of $4,500 to complete
the structure and provide the equipment.

Miguel & Olivia

Sergio & Gloria

Sergio

has also expanded to a community near Santa Ana in
El Salvador, where a new church family has begun. They aren’t able to meet on rainy days because their building has no roof.

They are in need of $2,000 for the tin sheets for the roof.

What is the value of one soul that comes into the kingdom?

Considering the price that God has paid for it – Priceless!

Titus and his wife, Lorna, and their family

These testimonies are so encouraging.

“We had this soul winning campaign on Saturday 9/11/2021 with legal permission from the local authorities. We began by intercession and thereafter general cleaning of Nsono trading centre in Buyinja subcounty Namayingo district. After that we went out for house to house evangelism and on the way evangelism while one preacher remained doing open air preaching because we had sound system. When we came back we had a get together lunch with the identified vulnerables within the parish. After that we gave out soap, clothes and shoes to some identified needy families in the parish. The area pastors helped us in identifying them. Then the youths went for a friendly football match with the area football team in the nearest primary school playground. As the game was on, the rest of the youths were doing one on one evangelism while distributing gospel literature. 21 people and over forty kids surrendered their lives to Christ.”

We have got 2,654 souls got saved and 5,300 returned to the Lord.

We have prayed for sick people and they received the miracle.

Family that they were not together they accepted to return home and become one again.

They were 150 children that they had decided to stop school we encouraged them to return back and they accepted.

We have helped 30 students with school notebooks and 5 we paid for them school fees.

Continue to pray for Burundi on this September 13th they will go back to school. They are many students still now they don’t have uniforms and notebooks and they don’t know how they will get it. Please pray for them may our Lord make a way for them.

Thank you so much for your Prayers and support

Be blessed

USA – Curlew mission with Olivia & Yvann, August 28, 2021

We were thankful to have Olivia and Yvann, who together with Olivia’s husband, Miguel, coordinate the ministry in Mexico, join us on our monthly mission to bring food and clothing to support the ministry in northeastern Washington.

It is a long day trip, but the weather was great and the scenery driving over the mountains shouts out to the creation that God has given to us.

John and Lena, who coordinate Harvest Vision Curlew Fellowship, greeted us along with the chickens, cats, dogs and deer and shared their vision to build a ministry home on their property. After unloading, we drove to the location of the farm that the ministry will  have oversight for and where John and Lena will be living.

While Lena gave Olivia a tour, John and Yvann began the process of catching two piglets that will be taken back to the petting zoo at the Garden of Eden family ministry in Mt. Vernon.

The ministry impacts the entire community around Curlew and Republic, and along with Jarett and Brianna, who coordinate the Harvest Vision Blue Creek ministry in the Chewelah and Colville communities, are bringing the body together to reach those that are “broken hearted and crushed in spirit”. We are praying about future mission trips that would bring people from western Washington and Mexico to support the ministries and get discipleship training from our co-laborers in these communities.

Mexico – George & Noe in San Luis, August 20, 2021

We were blessed to have a wonderful time of fellowship with Pr. Ariel & Mercedes and his church family on Thursday night. Yesterday we rested then visited with the church family of Bethesda who we have been blessed to partner in ministry with for 18 years. Pr. Mario went to be with the Lord the first of the year and we were encouraged that his children are leading worship and preaching the Word to stand for Jesus, their calling and vision. We have been prayerfully led to help Miguel and Olivia expand the ministry by revising the sewing room to include a printing business that will provide a more secure funding base for the ministry here. It also allows more believers to be involved. We will be able to tap into the wisdom that God has given to our brothers and sisters in El Salvador that also use a family-based printing business to meet the needs of the public as well as believers and provide a sustained income to support their family and ministry. We are working on an estimate, probably $2,000+ and we pray that the Body of Christ will prayerfully and financially support the vision. We also visited a property purchased by Luis and Norma that help with the ministry in a new area at the outskirts of the community. We will be purchasing a canopy that they will take out a few times a month to start a church family. Eventually, they will build their home there. We are also prayerfully hoping to raise the money needed (~$2,000) to put a metal roof on a home that was donated to be used as a meeting place for the new church family that Pr. Sergio has started in Ciudad Arce outside of San Salvador in El Salvador. We are blessed in the USA to have believers that can financially help spread the gospel to the nations, even as we face the reality of changes in our own country. Any amount, no matter how small, changes in value when it is placed in the Master’s Hands. We have no “paid” positions in Harvest Vision Ministries – in fact it is the other way around. Thanks for your prayers and participation and partnership in the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ in whatever way you are called.

USA – Harvest Kids with Olivia & Yvann, August 28, 2021

After a rare two days of light rain, we were blessed to have a beautiful sunny day for Harvest Kids. The garage, produce and corn sale were all opened and people were coming when we started our morning activities. We only had a few bags of aluminum cans that hadn’t been crushed and the kids make quick work of them. The whole morning was filled with numerous visitors for the sale and some to say hi to the Harvest Kids and Olivia and Yvann who are visiting with us from Mexico. They have been both been involved in the Harvest Kids when it was active in San Luis. We shared a quick testimony of how Harvest Kids got started and were reminded that it was just over 8 years ago that Madilyn and Hailey (now 13 & 11) made their one and only trip (so far) to Africa that God used to start Harvest Kids. They had their Change the World coin donations that they counted ($153) and when added to the garage sale and produce/corn sale money they had the last $5,575 they needed to finish the Harvest Doves primary school in Kayunga, Uganda. The total costs was $21,975 USD. What is impossible for man is possible for God. “And a little child will lead them.” The school started the first of June with 80 students, 35 from neighboring Muslim families. We are praying for an increased harvest of souls in the entire community. The kids saw a photo of the children eating a simple meal in the village where Madilyn’s House was built. A bowl and no utensils. Mama Linda then served all of us with a similar meal: rice, mango, banana, pineapple and no utensils. After the meal, we wished all the Harvest Kids around the world that were born in August a Happy Birthday, being mindful that many of the children in Africa and in other parts of the world don’t know when they were born because there are no records. Olivia shared the story in the Bible about the young boy that offered his simple meal to Jesus, after Jesus had commanded the disciples to feed the 5,000 men that had gathered to hear Him speak. They had already told Jesus they couldn’t get the food to do that, but after the boy put His tiny lunch in the hand’s of the Master, there was more than enough. A real encouragement to these young disciples. Afterwards, Wayne took Olivia and Yvann fishing and George took the kids to pick corn and then home to Granite Falls.

USA – CEF 5-day club at Garden of Eden, August 9-13, 2021

Many thanks to Lynn and Jeremy from Child’s Evangelism Fellowship for sharing the love of Jesus by continuing to sacrifice their time and gifts to serve the Lord by reaching and teaching the children in our community.

Many thanks to those that have made the Garden of Eden family ministry what it is today and available to our community to glorify God and bring the Body together in this wonderful setting.

As the Lord made it, the days and nights were filled with attention to the rabbits, dogs, frogs and bugs, but the kids were also able to help with some projects, moving wood and working in the garden and some of the kids even camped out a couple of nights. Thanks to everyone who helped with food, clean up and the parents with transporting their kids. The kids were given the gospel message in a variety of ways, through scripture, songs, stories and inter-active games. The most important teaching for the kids, and reminder for the youth and adults, is about the gift of always being able to talk in prayer with God who after we have received Him, will never leave us, or forsake us.

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters live together in unity.”

Psalms 133:1

USA – I was hungry and without clothes, August 7, 2021

Jesus said, “I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat. I was naked and you clothed Me. As much as you did it for the least of these, you did it for Me.”

What a privilege, on a beautiful day with good fellowship to make the 14-hour round-trip to deliver food and clothes to eastern Washington. The food and clothing will be distributed to different ministries that are reaching out to meet the needs of the people in their communities around the Curlew, Republic, Chewelah and Colville communities. That is a part of the ministry that John and Lena Seaman do with Harvest Vision Fellowship Curlew.

Jarett and Brianna minister with Harvest Vision Blue Creek in Chewelah.

We were also blessed to share some of the produce that was harvested from the farm at the Garden of Eden family ministry in Mt. Vernon, WA.

Many thanks to everyone that donated their time, clothing and provided the food, including those that have tilled, planted, watered and harvested, then helped load and provide the vehicle and trailer for the transport.

Jesus promised that even the very gates of hell would not stop His Church.

And the “double blessing” were the two rabbits that are the new residents of the new petting zoo that is starting at the Garden of Eden family ministry in Mt. Vernon.

USA – Everyone was filled with awe, August 7, 2021

We love the description of the New Testament church described in Acts 2:42-47.

“Everyone was filled with awe… broke bread together in each other’s homes…ate together with glad and sincere hearts…praising God…enjoying the favor of all the people…and the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”

Baptisms in the DRCongo, Salt and Light worship, harvesting produce at the Garden of Eden, 326 new believers accepting Jesus in Burundi in July, providing food and clothing for ministries in Curlew and Chewelah, two small rabbits for the new petting zoo at the Garden of Eden, garage sale through August to help the Harvest Kids finish building the new primary school in Africa, Child’s Evangelism 5-day club starting tomorrow and the 8th annual Harvest Fest at Riverfront Park in Sedro Woolley on August 15th.

Then we are off to Mexico and hopefully back in time to start harvesting the 4 fields of sweet corn a local farmer planted to help the Harvest Kids raise money for their ministry to orphaned and other vulnerable children in Africa.

Jesus said, “Do not put the new wine in the old wineskin”.

The World – The value of a soul, August 3, 2021

We are so blessed to share that 709 people accepted salvation in June during the sharing of the gospel by our co-laborers in central Africa.

We apologize for the late report of these testimonies, but our sister that shares these with us had problems with her pregnancy, but their family has been blessed with a new, healthy daughter, named Able.

We are thankful for our co-laborers locally that provide the prayers and financial support for these workers, including those that are sharing the gospel in Mexico and El Salvador.

We were able to send the funding to replace some of the sound equipment in Burundi and the DRCongo this last month.

We share these testimonies, so you may share in the blessings. “The share of the man who stayed with the supplies is to be the same as that of him who went down to the battle. All will share alike.” (1 Samuel 30:24)

The costs of even one soul won into the kingdom – Priceless.
