Current News


 Greetings in Christ

               Your prayers and continual partnership with us is greatly appreciated. We pray this report will inform and encourage you as we seek the Lord together.

    “Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord.  Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;  For thou  shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.”  Isaiah 54:1-3. Israel will be restored like a widow who is rescued from her reproach. As God delivers his people he tells them to enlarge the place of their tent because he is going to expand their space with blessings and make them fruitful.

      William Carey was a humble cobbler that God called to preach. In 1792 he preach from this text in Isaiah a message entitled  “Enlarge the place of their tent” and soon after he obeyed the call of God to become a missionary in Calcutta, India. By obeying the word   of the Lord to enlarge his tent God expanded Carey’s ministry to the world and his ministry affected millions of lives. The obedience of a humble William Carey is seen as the birth of modern missions. It was the word of God that moved upon him to bring the gospel of Christ to millions in his day. Today God is pointing us into our world where millions are still lost. God is enlarging the ministry where we are stretching out without hesitation. Thank you for having the faith to stretch out with us in obedience to the word of the Lord.


Rainbow: The children are abounding in the Lord and are in school. One of our pastors who is a tailor by trade is 

teaching the children tailoring skills. We purchased him a foot pedal sewing machine so that he could provide for his family and in return he  teaches the children.  The local bank in Malawi, that we use, has donated an additional two peddled machines for the children to learn tailoring.

 Our staff is now teaching two separate BUSH classes a week to spiritually grow the new church plants. Two of the churches we planted last year are also in the process of constructing new buildings in which to worship. When we visit this June we will hold a dedication service for these new churches with all the sister churches attending.

 We have been experiencing numerable electrical problems at our compound. We have only one breaker box for the whole compound and it is grossly overloaded. I have instructed Martin to disconnect the mission house and church building from the compound and reconnect them separately to the main line to ease the load. This is now possible because of the new electrical lines that were run to power the maize mill. The mill is fully operational but because of a national power outages we have not been able to operate it at a productive pace.


 BUSH Biblical Studies:  At this time we are in need to reprint 3,500 copies of the BUSH book in the native languages of the countries we are working in. Translation of two new languages is nearing completion. We pray for the needs of the translators and for the printing work to be completed.


    Thank you for your faithfulness to remain steadfast with us as God enlarges our tent to cover more countries as we are stretching out to reach the masses with the gospel of Jesus Christ.


  This is just a small report of what is God is doing, there is much more. We are thankful to the Lord for keeping our calendar full; this year I will do over  40 revivals and meetings all over the states. As well as conferences and mission work in multiple countries.  Follow this link to see the ministry calendar :
“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, if we ask
anything according to His will, He heareth us.
And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have
                                               the petitions that we desired of Him.” I John 5:14-15
