A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

USA – Harvest Kids with Child’s Evangelism Fellowship, Nov 9, 2019

   What a blessed day in the Harvest Home with these amazing young people. Most of the cans that had been donated had already been crushed so we started the morning counting the change that had been donated to support the Harvest Kids next project helping orphaned and vulnerable children in central Africa. They counted and rolled up $132.34. Pr. Martin in Africa is currently praying about where the greatest need is and will let us know soon. We talked about Veteran’s Day and honored that by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and then continued the discussion focusing on the price that Jesus paid for our redemption and how much more we should be grateful for His sacrifice that has given us eternal life.

    Lynn, from CEF, shared a wonderful message about thanksgiving using Psalms 92:1
“It is good to give thanks to the Lord. To sing praises to Your Name, O Most High.”
Amazing inter-active ministry, including helping these young people to know all the books of the Bible. Always an amazing simple message about a sovereign God that is in control of everything; omniscient, knowing everything; omni-present, being everywhere and omnipotent, being all powerful and choosing to come and live in us. Afterwards, the kids decorated paper bags and loaded them with dried apple chips, hazelnuts and candy, some from their trick or treat treasure, to be given to the homeless in our community. They finished the afternoon learning to make balloon animals and preparing bags of hazelnuts that will be used to get donations to support the over-all ministry.    


USA – Harvest Kids planting trees

  Many thanks to Wayne and Cathy for taking these young people to Riverfront Park in Sedro Woolley, WA to help plant trees along the banks of the Skagit River. We have been blessed to join with the Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group at different times during the last couple of years to help them in their environmental projects to plant trees along different water ways to prevent erosion here in our community.

“Then God said, ‘Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.’ And it was so. And God saw that it was good.”

(Gen 1:11-13) These young people are being taught to be good stewards of God’s gifts to us as His children and they are making a difference in our community. Pouring our lives into these young people is a great investment for our future and for the kingdom of God. They are “like trees planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.” (Psalm 1:3)  


Africa – October testimonies

  October was a difficult month doing outreaches in the central Africa region because of an unusual amount of rainfall that kept people from attending the various outreaches. Obviously, the rainfall makes transporting the equipment more difficult, plus the additional burden of trying to protect the equipment and keep it dry. We are thankful, that regardless of these obstacles, our co-laborers were in the field 72 days and coordinated 24 different crusades, seminars and outreaches. Along with the testimonies of deliverances and healings, 1,359 people came to faith in Jesus Christ, including witch doctors and Muslims, and many of them have been baptized. We thank everyone for their prayers and financial support. We are in need of refurbishing 2 generators ($150/each) and replacing an amplifier ($500) and a stabilizer ($80).
