A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

USA – Reaching the lost, June 1, 2020

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people.”

After Pentecost and the stoning of Stephen:

“On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Those who had been scattered preached the Word wherever they went.”
(Acts 8:1, 4)

We are blessed to be in contact with our co-laborers in Mexico, El Salvador and the different countries in central Africa, who continue to be thankful for the prayers and support they are receiving from our faithful prayer and financial supporters here in the USA. In spite of the difficulties presented by each country’s reaction to the corona virus, they continue to reach out with the gospel message and are witnessing new believers accepting Jesus Christ and are committed to become true disciples. We just wanted to share this one testimony from Pastor Titus who coordinates ministry in Namayingo in southeast Uganda.

“Glory and honor go back to our dear Lord Jesus Christ who has enabled us to extend His Kingdom to the lost even when the lockdown is seriously hindering us. On 5/10/2020, we had house to house evangelism in Nsono East (3) souls; on 5/22/2020, we had house to house evangelism at Syanyonja North (7) souls; on 5/28/2020, we had house to house evangelism in Syanyonja East (4) souls and on 5/31/2020, we had house to house in Syanyonja A (3) souls. TOTAL 17 souls in the kingdom of Christ. There were instant healings experienced during these missions. Thanks for your prayers and facilitation.”  Pastor Titus

Locally, we are witnessing people taking the opportunity to reach out to people in their sphere of influence who are struggling with their faith and others that are struggling without the knowledge of the love the Father has for them. Church families are beginning to meet together, and others are continuing their ministries to help people that are being overcome by addiction, depression, financial and marital problems, including domestic violence and thoughts of suicide. God is continuing to pour out His Spirit and we are beginning to see the unity of faith and the light beginning to shine more brightly than even before the reaction to the global virus tried to quench the role that God assigned to His Church to share the message of eternal salvation.

USA – One day in the kingdom, June 1, 2020

Another wonderful, joy filled day as we witness the Holy Spirit pouring out His love in many different ways. This morning we were able to help Carolyn as she spreads wood chips out to make the play area for the kid’s club safe and fun for the children of her family that live in her small community.
We were blessed to have Noe join with us today as Cheryl and Linda planted turnips and potatoes and did some weeding along the fence and around the Marion berries at the Garden of Eden farming ministry in west Mt. Vernon.
Thanks to Fred who visited and shared his expertise on how we can plan on improving on the garden this year and in the future.
Today, we also received word from Uganda that they are possibly opening up their public transport this next week. Kennedy, who is our central Uganda coordinator, will be looking for a place to rent so his family can set up their sustainability project which will allow them to sell produce in the market and which will provide an income for his family as he coordinates future outreaches.
We also received a photo from Titus, our east Uganda coordinator, who just purchased his motorbike which will help him as he encourages and supports pastors and church families that live around his community.
It was also a blessing to witness, Augustine, our DRCongo coordinator, as he gave a water filter to a local family, that will allow them to have safe drinking water. Thanks to The King’s Storehouse ministry out of Ferndale, WA that donate them for ministry outreach.
Our day is flooded with divine encounters sharing the love of Jesus through a myriad of circumstances that are meant to quench the Holy Spirit and love that the Father has for all of humankind.
BUT – God’s love never fails!


USA – Guilty or innocent? May 28, 2020

    “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”
(1 John 1:8)

Charles Spurgeon tells of a great English prince who on one occasion went to visit a famous king of Spain. The prince was taken down to the galleys to see the men who were chained to the oars and doomed to be slaves for life. The king promised in honor of the prince’s visit that he would set free any one of these men that the prince might choose. So the prince went to one and said, “My poor fellow, I am sorry to see you in this plight; how came you here?” He answered, “False witnesses gave evidence against me; I am suffering wrongfully.” On from man to man he went. Some would say, “I certainly did wrong, but to no great extent. I ought not to be here.” Others made similar excuses. Finally the prince came to one man who said, “Sir, I am often thankful that I am here, for I am sorry to own that if I had received my dues I would have been executed. I am certainly guilty of all that I am charged with, and my most severe punishment is just.” The prince replied to him, “It is a pity that such a guilty man should be chained to such innocent men as these, therefore I set you free.”

“If we confess our sins to one another, He is faithful and just to forgive.”
(1 John 1:9)  


USA – Harvest Kids, May 30, 2020

“At that time Jesus said, ‘I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what You were pleased to do.”
(Matthew 11:25-26)

We are thankful to have been able to have some of the Harvest Kids together this weekend and it has been a real joy. We are tentatively planning a little road trip and campout in the near future. Madilyn, Hailey and Clara were able to visit the Garden of Eden farming ministry in west Mt. Vernon and were  delighted to see Cheryl and Grandma Linda working to plant more crops that the Harvest Kids will be able to help harvest and offer for donations to help their ministry to vulnerable children in central Africa. Afterwards, the kids made bracelets in the Harvest Home while Veronica was painting the first paw print for the Harvest Friends ministry. Violet is the pet lab that lives with Blake, Kylee and the girls in Granite Falls. We are hoping that very soon the board will be filled with the prints of many people’s pets from our community. Obviously, the kids showed their famous “lower lip” method they use when they are trying to make a deal with Grandpa George so they can have their way. Many thanks to Veronica for preparing them dinner and Linda for getting the smores as they prepared for the campout in the tent in their front yard. Then, in the morning, they talked Linda into making purple pancakes and taking them breakfast in bed in the tent. We had a few moments to play with the cats, practice the keyboard, do some coloring and trying out a couple of the Reggie Hunter walking sticks before having to leave for home. We have many important opportunities to help build God’s kingdom, but none more important that teaching our children how to be true disciples of Jesus Christ.
