A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

Africa – Water in South Sudan, Dec 7, 2021

What if you were born in a place where there had never been a source of good clean water.

And then on December 8, 2021, a group of Christian believers from Taiwan visited your community and drilled a well for your community.

We are thankful for our ministry partners from the Love Benti ministry that just finished drilling their 3rd well for Gospel Harvest Juba in South Sudan. They are also helping with a property that will be used for a church structure as they continue their door-to-door ministry and home church ministry.

Pr. Martin, the director of Harvest Vision Africa, has finally been able to return to South Sudan after waiting for restrictions to finally be lifted. John Light registered Harvest South Sudan a number of years ago but went to be with the Lord a few years ago. Pr. Martin will be meeting with the pastors and leaders that are involved with Harvest Vision South Sudan to ensure the legal requirements for being a registered ministry are being met. The outreach ministry is severely limited because of the high expense of transportation required to move people and equipment. Gas is not expensive, but hiring the transport is. Martin would like us to help provide the funds to purchase a motorbike for them.

That cost is $1,100.

Pr. Charles that runs the Harvest Doves primary school in Kayunga, Uganda is finishing up the last of the work for the building that the Harvest Kids and their supporters built this last year. They are in need of a rainwater 6,000 liter storage tank for drinking water and 40 desks for the children. We are starting a project for the Harvest Kids (with helpers) to raise the $1,120 for the desks.

That is 40 desks at $28 USD each.

We still don’t have an estimate on the water tank.

The bible colleges in Uganda are all flourishing and some of them have been operating 4 days per week for 8 weeks straight. The pastors that have already been trained are now taking on the burden of teaching the new students. That gives Pr. Martin and Nelson the opportunity to start new bible schools in different parts of central Africa.

We just received the testimonies from the 8 outreaches in Burundi that Pr. Evariste and his team coordinated in November. Over 19 days, they ministered in many different provinces and witnessed 643 that accepted Jesus and are now being discipled by local believers that share the word of God and ensure they get involved in a local church family. We are looking forward to the November testimonies from our coordinators in the other countries that we are blessed to be in partnership with.

Can you give a HALLELUJAH?

We just received the testimonies of 8 outreaches that were held in Burundi in eight different provinces over 19 days in November.


We are thankful for the opportunity to pray for and financially support our coordinators in all these countries in central Africa that sacrifice daily to reach the lost in these different areas.

Everyone. Everything. Everyday.
Can you give a HALLELUJAH?

USA – Suicide, Dec 5, 2021

I was blessed to be raised by a wonderful Christian mother and I loved the Lord. My childhood was filled with wanting to do those things that would honor and please God. But then my best friend was killed in an automobile accident right before we both would be turning 16 and I was left with an emptiness I had never experienced. I prayed and plodded along but something had changed. At that time, our country was involved in the Vietnam conflict and some of my upperclassman volunteered to serve, and we received word that some had given their lives. I loved my country, so I grabbed hold of that opportunity and joined the service three days after graduating high school. When I came home from my first tour, I called my mom before I went home to visit having already been assigned for a second tour. She communicated to me that some of the people’s attitude in the country had changed and the real heroes were the young people that fled to Canada to escape serving their country. That was totally not true, but the information that the media was putting out and I bought the lie. Even though I did go back, I went back having lost any purpose for my life. I quit believing and quit hoping. That lasted until I was 25 years old and found recovery from over 5 years of alcoholism during which I spent every day just not wanting to wake up the next day.

A few years ago, I wrote the following post.

“The thoughts of suicide; being alone and not caring and not believing should help us understand in a deeper way the consequence of having a relationship with God or not. Not to trivialize the pain associated with the loss of someone who has taken their own life, but physical suicide may only take a few minutes, but spiritual suicide is forever. Many of us have tried to imagine the depth of despair a person has to have to believe there is no hope in clinging to life itself. Now imagine spending eternity in that moment of hopelessness and separation. No pills in the bottle, no alcohol in the bottle, no bullet in the gun, no blade in the knife or in the razor, no gas in the car to make carbon monoxide, no window to jump out of, no cliff to drive or jump off of, no water to drowned in and no rope to hang yourself with. Wanting the pain of separation to be gone but it never will – forever. We know that is the last thing that God would ever want.
That is why Jesus died on the cross. So, everyone can be saved from that consequence. He has provided the way for all humanity to have a loving and eternal relationship with Him. It costs us nothing yet costs Him everything, so we have the freedom and responsibility to choose. We make our own choice of whether we want to live with Him or without Him, but we do not get to choose the eternal consequences of how that choice will play out.

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
We all have one vote. Cast it wisely.”
