A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

Africa- Discipling New Believers, March 17, 2023

Jesus said there would be a new Spirit poured out on all people and they would overcome by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony and would not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. Truly submitted and committed to be bread broken and wine poured out of a new wineskin. We were grateful to talk with Pastor Martin who directs Harvest Vision Ministries in Africa today and hear the testimonies of those that are making decisions to quit their jobs so they can go and help disciple new believers, even if it means they may only have one meal a day. We know that it isn’t everyone but it is necessary to see that spirit of sacrifice being willingly poured out so that another soul may come into their rightful inheritance. We are prayerfully considering how we might get our evangelists and teachers in Africa the opportunity to come on missions to our community here. Please join us in prayer that the Lord will release some financial provision that we have had tied up in purchasing land that can be redirected to help fund more of the evangelism, pastoral teaching and disciple making needs in the communities of these nations in central Africa. Please pray for the Christian community here in the USA. Jesus described a seed that grew but the worries of the world and deceitfulness of wealth made it unfruitful. Or as the great theologian. A.W. Tozer, said: “A whole new generation of Christians has come up believing that it is possible to ‘accept’ Christ without forsaking the world.” Harvest Vision is committed to the vision of a revival of fire starting at the source of the Nile River in Uganda and lighting up the entire African continent for the whole world to see. Be faithful to the vision! We love you with every breath and every heartbeat. God is incapable of inaction as long as there is one soul left to be saved.

Am back in Kaliro district outside of Kampala, Uganda at the church.

We had a beautiful service yesterday and are organizing a gospel crusade this week at a place called Makutu. It will begin from Thursday to Sunday. We will set up equipment and stage on Wednesday. We got so many people received Jesus Christ this week and we got a girl of around 14 years old that recieved Jesus Christ but she had an abnormality that needed surgery.  She has Atresia, so we took her to a hospital last evening and she was operated on and the operation was successful. I am woken up this morning and am going to check on her and the mother because they spent the night in the hospital. Her father is wasted out in alcohol and had refused to do the operation since childhood. She had Atresia in her reproduction organs which needed puncturing. Her period blood was flowing upwards because it had no passage so the mother brought her saying that demons are sucking blood out of her but when I inquired of doctors, they said she had began experiencing periods but the blood had no passage so they recommended an operation. Doctors said that she would die if she isn’t helped early so we just decided to do it. I know God will provide for us to make it through the month. The dad just said that she was a demon child and he has no money to waste on her, but he doesn’t even have money anyway. We thank God she is okay now. It took $120 for the whole hospital process and we used part of the support money for this month.

We shall make it through by faith.

We also have a need to replace 4 keyboards for coordinators in four different areas of Uganda.

USA – Harvest Kids, March 11, 2023

  Many thanks to our multitude of older Harvest Kids that came today to encourage, fellowship and learn more about the love of Jesus with our younger disciples. It is always a blessing to start with prayer and join our voices together to worship and give praise with Mama Odette who leads us. We were blessed with Betsy and Jeanette from Child’s Evangelism Fellowship coming to share the story of St. Patrick and his journey of faith. The “Word Up” for the lesson was: “God’s protection is better than good luck!” As always, the teaching is very inter-active and allows these young people to ask questions about the teaching. Lot’s of fun and joy in their presentation which is always centered on the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Our art skills were tested making some beautiful clover activity sheets for everyone to take home.

   We enjoyed another great lunch prepared by Mama Linda before we counted the $407 that had been collected and which included the donations that have been received for the hamburger donated by a local farmer. That puts us at $1,356 toward the goal of $2,248 for the sealing and painting of the Harvest Doves primary school the kids have been building in Kayunga, Uganda the last two years. We still have this great 90/10 super lean hamburger available for $5/pound donation to help the kids. You can call us at the phone numbers below if you are interested.   

    Thanks to everyone that helped make cards to include in the bags that were put together for people to take in their vehicles to give to our friends on the streets. Thanks to Zach, Daniel and Cece for helping the kids. We finished with a little water relay, which tests the kids agility, balance and competitive spirit. Afterward, we were blessed with a wonderful day to go out and visit the playground and petting zoo.

We meet the 2nd & 4th Saturday of the month at the Garden of Eden family ministry fellowship center at 14799 Avon Allen Rd in west Mount Vernon from 11am-1:30pm. Please contact us if you want more information about Harvest Kids at 360-421-8811 or 360-421-8812 or check out the www.harvestvisionministries.org website for more information. 




USA – Kids helping kids, March 10, 2023

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers (and sisters). If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother (or sister) in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words and tongue, but with actions and in truth.”

(1 John 3:16-18)

     Thanks to all of you who help and support the Harvest Kids as they share the love of Jesus with the orphaned and other vulnerable children in central Africa. Thanks for those that donate the aluminum cans they crush and recycle to get donations and for their family and friends that help them gather change to donate to fund the “Change the World” projects they support. They are currently raising money to finish building the Harvest Doves primary school in Kayunga, Uganda. We meet together the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 11am-1:30pm at the Garden of Eden family ministry fellowship center at 14799 Avon Allen Rd in west Mount Vernon. We are meeting this Saturday, March 11th to encourage one another in our journey of faith by learning more from God’s Word and building relationships with one another which involves fun, games and inter-active songs and sharing. And always involves a trip outside to the playground and visit the animals in the petting zoo.

    Although we have a small crew of volunteers that support kids, we would like to help everyone that would like to be involved. Please give us a call (360-421-8811 or 360-421-8812) if you want more information or may need help with transportation. We will make every effort we can to help these kids help the kids. You can also find out more information on the www.harvestvisionministries.org website.  

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth! You have set Your Glory above the heavens. From the lips of children and infants You have ordained praise because of Your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.”
