A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

Africa – November outreaches, Dec 19, 2019

     “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel, which means ‘God with us’. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.” (Mt 1:23, 21)

     If Jesus wrote a letter to Santa, what would He ask for?

     If Jesus sang the song, “All I want for Christmas”, what would He ask for?

Actually we already have been given that answer.

Jesus said, “For the Son of Man came to seek and save what was lost”. (Luke 19:10)

We are thankful for our co-laborers in central Africa, that spent the month of November coordinating 26 outreaches and witnessed the Holy Spirit prompt the hearts of 1,968 new believers to respond to Jesus. Jesus said, “Here I AM. I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with them and they will eat with Me.” (Rev 3:20)

    Many thanks to our co-laborers that pray and help financially support these native missionaries.

We are praying that others will join with us as we continue to support these brothers and sisters and even more so as we have coordinators in the east and west Uganda, eastern DRCongo, southern South Sudan and Ethipoia, El Salvador and Australia that are needing sound and video equipment to better reach those in their respective regions. They work with Christian pastor’s and leaders to bring the gospel message to those that are broken-hearted and crushed in spirit in their respective communities. That is six sets of equipment that costs about $3,600 each by the time we are able to put them all together. If God has blessed you, it isn’t to raise your “standard of living” as much as it is to raise your “standard of giving”. Please prayerfully consider increasing your partnership in the kingdom ministry of our Lord, Jesus Christ who “came to seek and save what was lost”.

USA – Trouble in this world December 27, 2019

We were blessed to have the Harvest Kids and adults at the Riverstone Climbing Gym in the morning and roller skating in the evening in Burlington. Lot’s of teaching opportunities throughout the day. The training at the climbing gym focuses on the safe and proper use of your equipment and includes understanding the importance of communication with the person that will be your “belay” – the person responsible to hold the rope for your ascent and descent on the wall.

“Belay” – The securing of a person or a safety rope to an anchor point (as during mountain climbing); to make fast; to fasten down.

     Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

     “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)

      “God is our refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)

USA – Amazing return on investment, Dec 7, 2019

     Many thanks to everyone who prays and supports Harvest Vision Ministries as we make every effort to prepare and equip our co-laborers that are in the harvest fields, locally and around the world, to reach the lost with the uncompromised Word of God. Here, in our little home and office in Sedro Woolley, Washington, no person receives any monetary compensation for the sacrifices they make. Through the first part of December of this year, we have received donations of $115,000 that supports the ministry locally and other ministry in NW Washington, Canada, Mexico and 7 countries in central Africa. This pays for homeless, children’s and other ministry locally, mission home and outreach in Mexico and supports coordinators and maintains sound & equipment for outreaches in Africa, as well as money for health and education needs in Africa. We have paid a little over 2% for admin costs which is mainly the costs of the services for our on-line donations. So far, just the outreaches using the equipment in Africa have witnessed over 35,000 people accept Jesus this year and are now being discipled in local church families to reach even others. We are still waiting testimonies for the rest of the outreaches in November and for December. It is a blessing to know God is using a $25/mo donation to reach over 7 people for each of those months. May God continue to get the glory for those that He is bringing to salvation.  

We have 6 coordinators in central Africa, El Salvador and Australia that are working to reach the lost in their areas and can reach even more if they have additional equipment. Please consider whether you would like to help them give the gift that truly keeps on giving.

   If you would like to make a donation, they can be made on line at www.myegiving/hvm or the “electronic giving” on the home page of the www.harvestvisionministries.org website or through PayPal to harvestvision21@msn.com or send to Harvest Vision Ministries, PO Box 733, Sedro Woolley, WA, 98284.
