The World – Enlarge your territory – November 5, 2020

There is only one thing that has and will always continue to spread unchecked across the globe.

“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left;, your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in desolate cities. (Isaiah 54:2-3)

Jesus said, “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.” (Matthew 11:12) “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14).

We have been blessed to start working in concert with Pr. Martin who has been called to fulfill the role of apostolic ministry in central Africa 15 years ago this month. The ministry now includes 11 coordinator’s serving into 7 different countries. The original vision the Lord gave us was to begin ministry at the source of the Nile River, Lake Victoria, and God continues to give us favor and His provision. Over one half of the shores of Lake Victoria, borders to the south in Tanzania, where we have done some sporadic ministry over the years. Pr. Martin over-sees this, including the branch churches in Uganda as well as the Bible schools, except those that Pr. Evariste over-sees in Burundi. Pr. Martin is bringing another pastor to help with the pastoral oversight at the “mother church” in Kibuli in Kampala and has identified another pastor who has been called to help over-see the Bible schools, including the three starting in eastern Uganda, which will give him more time for teaching leaders and expanding the work. The Lord is strengthening the ministry in northern and western Kenya, where the ministry will be registered soon, and which borders Tanzania on the north. We are praying that the needs of Pr. Evariste will soon be met which will allow the ministry in Burundi to continue to grow and also allow him to help expand the ministry to Tanzania. He is in need of a larger car for transporting equipment safely ($3,500), retail business that will help sustain his family and provide additional money to support the expanding of the ministry ($3,500) and additional rooms for teaching and an office at his home ($4,000). As soon as travel is allowed, Pr. Martin will be returning to South Sudan to work with the leadership as they help with evangelizing, teaching pastors and leaders and strengthening or establishing church families to disciple new believers.
