God Bless each and every one of you in the precious name of Jesus Christ!
I thank all of you for your encouragement, for your stand with us, for your support and for your prayers. It’s the Body working together and being thankful is how this ministry functions. We don’t do fund raisers or have gimmicks. We obey God to the best of our ability and reach out in love.
I pray you all are having a great summer. It sure has been busy. We still strive to help and reach children in Palomas, Mexico. We are not a feeding program but we do bring food to be distributed among families.
Our brothers and sisters in Liberia, West Africa are standing and fighting to keep E-bola from entering their camp. But they keep praising God and reaching out to those who have need! They are taking the children, who have never been anywhere, to other Christian churches to meet and play with other children. Which I believe is very important.
It is a blessing to see how people with so little help do so much! How they learn to depend on God and not us! How to be thankful…and they truly are thankful! Those children pray for us every day and the people who help them…and I say “us”…which includes you all!!!
In Romania they have had an extremely hot summer, which I believe is normal! Most people there do not have air conditioning. The flats they live in (what we call apartments) do not have circulation because at least one wall is shared with their neighbor. Just the little things like circulation is a great blessing! I thank God for air conditioning!!
We are very blessed here in T or C as we are starting to get rain after waiting for nearly a year! Thank you for your prayers! We’ve got a long way to go to get caught up but we are thankful! Now we have to get used to the humidity!! But it’s needed if we are to have more rain!!! Praise God!
On this earth NOTHING is perfect….except you and I and I’m not too sure about you!! Ha! Ha! But praise God we all have a perfect spirit! Mankind had to wait a long time for this. Spirit is what we need to let lead us. In the Bible it’s called the Comforter and many other things but if we look to the Spirit of God to lead us and study ( 2 Tim 2:15) and we start depending on getting revelation from that spirit and check that revelation with the Word of God…which we study…we can walk through these storms which are on the horizon all around us.
The only peace we have is not because of a smile on our face but because we have Jesus Christ! He is the Prince of Peace! He’s my King! And that makes Him the King of Peace! If we continue to look for the day when we meet Him face to face…how much you think of this…how much you anticipate His return…you will receive a crown of righteousness ( 2 Tim 4:8). Not just thinking about it because life is tough and it’s a way of escape…that’s not a reason. But you anticipate His return because you love Him and long to be with Him! Don’t be fooled! The day is coming and I believe it is knocking on our door! That’s why all the news of things going on in the world doesn’t frighten me. It’s exciting! It’s the coming of Our Lord! And He’s not coming back as Sweet Jesus! He’s coming back as King of Kings with a rod of iron ( Rev 19:15 ) to bring a curse on ungodliness and to greatly bless the godly! Let’s continue to be godly!!
God Bless each and every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ! I love you and pray for you and that is from all our staff too!

Restoring the Congregation of the Lord
By Carl L. Fox and Paul D. Norcross
By Clement Humbard
This generation is destined to know by revelation and experience the Lord Jesus Christ more intimately than any before us. The Revelation of God is progressive, accumulative, and eternal. The inspired Word of God is settled, the Faith once delivered remains, the work of Calvary is once and for all finished, and the ministry of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit continues upon this earth.
However, we seek and pray for the spirit of wisdom and revelation to know and understand the riches of His Glory, which is His inheritance in the saints, and be able to comprehend the breadth, length, depth, and height of the love of Christ (Ephesians 1:17-18; 3:18,19). The pursuit of God, the divine romance, the hunger and thirst after God and His righteousness continues. We don’t know it all nor have it all.
Christ stated that all would be revealed, known, and proclaimed, even the hidden things revealed unto ‘babes” (Matthew 10:26-27; 11:25; Luke 12:2-3). The neglected and/or unknown teaching presented herein by our brothers Carl Fox and Paul Norcross may well be included in His statement. There should, therefore, be no fear, or alarm, over unheard and unfamiliar scriptural truth of generational curses and blessings.
Jesus told His disciples they were not able to bear more revelation at that time, but the promised Holy Spirit would teach them, and guide them into all truth. The Apostle Paul, after writing the most complete exposition of the central truths of Christianity, which was:
- the Gospel of God
- the “Constitution” of Christianity
- the all inclusive widest possible designation of the whole body of redemptive truth,
declared that there was still a mystery to be revealed beyond that which the Romans already knew. Through this they would be established (Romans 16:25-26).
The indelible stigma of illegitimate births was present in Bible days. When Jesus was twelve years of age He went up to Jerusalem with Joseph and Mary to the feast of the Passover to register His Name and the name of his Father. When the days were fulfilled they returned not knowing Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem. (A twelve-year old boy could travel, as the custom was, with the men’s, or women’s group and they did not miss Jesus until they went a day’s journey.) Three days later He was found in the temple with teachers. When Mary, his mother, asked for an explanation, Jesus answered, “Knew ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?”
Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and God was His Father. During His ministry the Pharisees and the Jews belittled and mocked Him by declaring “where is your Father?”45 and “we are not born of fornication,” meaning that they were not bastard children like (they thought) Jesus was.46
The very process that satan would use to bring generational curses, God, in His infinite wisdom used, through the virgin birth of our Lord and His death on the cross, to break the curse and bring generational blessings. The Word of God declares in Galatians chapter three that Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. This redemption is universal for all Christians, but it must be appropriated by faith, that the blessing of Abraham may come through Jesus Christ.
May the understanding brought by this book help to release much freedom and joy to the Body of Christ!

April 30, 2014
God bless you all in the name of Jesus Christ!
I love you and I thank you for your prayers, your encouragement and your support. I’ve worked on getting my “clock” back to mountain time as we just got back from Romania a few days ago. It rained every day except the first day and the last two days we were there! Once again, it was an amazing and successful trip. God is faithful to perform His Word when it is believed! Wherever we went, many, many people came for prayer and were healed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! One man in particular, who was in liver failure, was given a new liver! We watched as his complexion turned pink and his eyes turned from yellow to white! He was also healed of a tumor on his spine! All this happened on the first night we arrived! Even though we were tired from traveling over 24 hours to get there, it was an energetic reminder as to why we do what we do! Glory to God!
Throughout the upcoming days we saw many more miracles of healing and many people accepting the Lord Jesus Christ for the first time! The villages in Romania have more and more Christian youth and parents than I’ve ever seen before. Steve and John spent a lot of time in these villages with the children and their parents. The children love to act out stories from the Bible. It helps them remember what the Word teaches. We also handed out small amounts of oil, rice and sugar to about 90 different families. It seems to be such a small thing but to these lovely people, it makes a difference.
We also visited several other churches where we preached and ministered healing. I was able also to spend time with faithful believers and their families that I have known for a long time now.
One minister, who I have known for 20 years, has not only his children but also his grandchildren participating in the church service. God is faithful to His promises! Amen!
All in all, Romania continues to be fertile ground for the Body of Christ to grow! You are all a vital part of this outreach and I pray God to show you the beauty and value of your prayers and support for this work.
We are so blessed to continue to hear good reports from Liberia and that God continues moving forward in that country. I received several pictures from our minister there of the children eating food that your support helps to provide. Seeing these children with smiles and full tummies is a blessing beyond measure!
We continue to stand and see God working mightily in our lives. The love of God never fails! I am gratelul for all the great friends who are faIthful to God, to his Word and to the Lord Jesus Christ and who stand with me and with us. It is an exciting time to be alive!
God bless each and every one of you and your families. Please keep in touch. I love you. I pray for you.
4/23 Carl and Ed arrived in Bucharest, all luggage intact, praise God, Ed at about 2:00 PM and Carl at 4:30 PM. Martin Mallette and Nicky met Ed and we had a snack and visited outside under an umbrella at a cafe at the airport. The sun was shining and it was very nice. We watched Carl’s airplane land.
Sister Esther arrived and drove us to the one room apartment they had prepared for us. It is reminiscent of the chamber prepared for Elisha the prophet, 1 Kings 4:10, but better equipped, with chairs, a bath room, and kitchen cabinets. We went to bed about 9:00 PM and woke up at midnight. After a couple hours we went back to sleep and woke up in the morning feeling rested.
4/24 We visited a family Carl loves very much. This family meets during the week to pray and worship the Lord together. After they sang some hymns, they asked Carl if he had a word. Carl said he wanted to pray for a nephew who had cancer but needed to share some things about shame and how when we repent of sin and ask God’s forgiveness, He forgives us our sins and remembers them no more, so, when we are reminded of sins we have repented of, it is not God who is reminding us, but it is an attack from the devil. Carl told the parents and grandparents that this did not come on this young man because of their past sins, but it was an attack from Satan. He told the young man that if he truly believed that by Jesus’ stripes he was healed he would be healed. He then asked that someone who does calligraphy make a poster with 1 Peter 2:24 for the young man to have before his eyes. He asked him to repeat that verse again and again and for his relatives to do the same. After that many came up for prayer and Carl prayed for them all and spoke words of repentance and encouragement. The lady of the house told Carl later that the words he spoke over each one of them were true and good words for each.
After reading the above account she said “you must include more about the many miracles that happened in my house” and wrote the following: “-Every wednesday and friday my husband’s family fasts and prays together. We are around 20 people (just the adults). The eldest brother has a son (his eldest, too) that HAD a very rare and killing disease. The doctors told the parents that he was going to die since he was 5 years old. He is now 23! Brother Carl prayed for him every year and he lived. Even when his own family bought a grave for him. His blood vessels grow inside and outside his body forming some tumors that gather looking like a cauliflower. Last years they grew in his knee and the only thing the doctors could do was to amputate it, from the hip. The doctors from Romania said they couldn’t do anything to help him, so he was treated in Austria.
“Two weeks ago, the tumors smashed into his throat and he was almost dead. They went to Austria and prepared him for the surgery. The thing that brother Carl didn’t know, but The Holy Spirit did, was that the morning the surgery should have taken place, the doctor changed his mind and said it was too risky. They sent him home and arrived just the day brothers Carl and Ed arrived in Romania. And brother Carl said: ‘The devil wanted to kill you the days before, but God wanted you to live and sent angels to protect you!,’ and although his mom was sorry they didn’t operate on him, we understood that the surgery would have killed him.
“They prayed for him at that gathering, brother Carl rebuked the family for not having faith asking those who didn’t believe to leave the room, and after praying for him he said that he was already healed. AMIN! He is so much better now. The young man that was almost dead now eats/walks/talks a.s.o.
“-There was another young man, father of 5 children who suffered for years of problems with his colon. Because of the too much bleedings and stools with blood, and the doctors in Austria couldn’t diagnose/help him, he had a depression for some time, but now he was struggling to defeat it. And brother Carl prayed for him and said: ‘It was something bad going on with this man that has dissappeared.!’ His kids were crying…everyone was happy! But br. Carl had a solution: he had to drink 3 big bottles of water every day for 7 days, so his glands would be cleansed and his body eliminate all the toxins. He started to do that. I just spoke to his wife and she told me that he was already better and by the time the 7 days pass – they truly believe that God will honor their faith!
“-He also prayed for a woman who at the age of 47 became a widow and she had 13 children! The youngest was only 5. Br. Carl didn’t know her, but he told her that she was a woman of faith, and her prayers saved the life of her children. And this is true. We, those who knew that, were amazed how the Holy Spirit showed him that asset of hers.”
[Comment: It is a wonderful blessing to have these testimonies. Many believe Carl knows too much about them because of the words God gives him. Some wish he would die so he cannot expose them. This is not true! God gives Carl the words so the people can believe it is God who is speaking to them, receive the words He sent, and be healed. These testimonies show that we, who minister or witness the ministering, do not know the half of it. God gives the words for the people to heal them because He loves them. We who experience about a miracle a month or less can remember them a long time, whoever experiences less than one miracle a year can remember them forever, but those who experience 10 or 20 in a day cannot remember them at the end of the day. Let us pray to reach the point that we cannot remember the first miracle we did today, before breakfast! Amen?]
In the evening Carl preached at Brother Costel’s church. The message was about how Jesus came as the second Adam [1 Corinthians 15:45-49], He came as a man [1 Corinthians 15:47], in the flesh [1 John 4:2-3], and those who believe on Him, the works He did, we can do also, and greater works than these, we can do, because He went to the Father, John 14:12, and whatsoever we ask in His name, that will He do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son, John 14:13, If we ask anything in His name, He will do it, John 14:14, but we must give all the glory to God, John 14:13. With many words, Carl exhorted them to walk out in faith and minister to people. Carl was too tired to pray for each individually, so he prayed a corporate prayer for them. People started to come up for individual prayer, so Brother Costel prayed for them and Brother Martin took us home. Praise God for His goodness and that His perfect will be done, that more and more Romanians do the works that Jesus did and greater works than these, because He went to the Father and sent the holy spirit to teach us and remind us of the things that Jesus taught! Amen!
4/25 We rested most of the day, Thursday. our hostess had a number of people with needs for prayer to the apartment building where we are staying. There is a kitchen and living room/dining room area in the daylight basement. Carl ministered in the living room area. They all received healings and/or counsel according to their needs.
Our hostess added: “We knew that brother Carl and Ed were tired because of the very long trip and of the time zone, so we told about his visit only to those who needed healing and also had faith. There were 3 women who came: mother of 7, mother of 15 and mother of 17 children. The oldest was 55 years old. They married at very young ages, had the kids and they worked very hard, so by the age of 50, they looked older and felt worse. All of them were diagnosed with tumors, but only one knew for sure it was cancer. That day she came back from Austria from her first chemo therapy session.
“Brother Carl prayed. We didn’t tell him anything about them, but when he touched the first lady, he prayed so that the lumps in her thyroid gland dry so she could breathe and have rest during the nights. But that was not all! Brother Carl prayed for her and asked from God peace over her family, because he said it lacked and that her family accused her of their failure. ‘Who told him about us? Did you?’ the woman’s husband asked. I was the translator, but I didn’t know about that, in fact we all didn’t know that there is a fight in that family, so all of us were amazed about the power that was revealing to ourselves.
“The second woman was a prophet. A great woman of God, with marks on her knees from all the years spent praying. She needed healing, too, but brother Carl didn’t have a word from God about that! There were people from her husband’s family who despised her and didn’t trust her gift was real. GOD KNEW that and wanted to comfort her. He told her that she shouldn’t worry that people don’t accept her prophecy. It was not her job to make them believe it! It was her job to tell them the words God gave her for them! She started to cry and thank Him.”
4:26 We were served breakfast in the dining area of the apartment where we are staying. After breakfast, our hostess had people come for ministery in the living room area beginning with her son and his friend, who have known Carl since they were children. Again, all received healings and/or counsel according to their needs.
In the evening we went to Jon Calin’s church in Bucharest. After several sets of music played by Jon, some of his children, and a professional musician who played an electric violin. After that, a pastor we ordained at Glina about a year ago preached a wonderful message. After that, they played another set of music and Jon had Sylvia sing a song. (Sylvia paid a high price for her salvation years ago. She was a well known opera singer but was fired and ostracized after she gave witness of her salvation.) After that, Jon asked Ed to share a word. Ed spoke a blessing over the congregation and told them he believed and prayed that this congregation would continue until all the gentiles are brought in. He shared that he thinks he has it on the word of Daniel and Jesus that the end of the age will not occur in less than 3 1/2 years, because we have not yet seen the beast stand in the temple mount and declare himself to be God [Daniel 12:1, 6-7, 10-12; Matthew 24:13-15; Revelation 13:2, 5-6]. The worship team played another number and Jon asked Brother Martin to share a word. Brother Martin shared his testimony about how a week after he got involved with some charismatics, spoke in tongues, and got kicked out of the church he was in, he met Carl and Ed. He asked them if they spoke in tongues and they said yes, and the other manifestations of the holy spirit. After seeing Carl demonstrate John 14:12, Brother Martin has been working with him ever since. After having Brother Martin sing a song, Brother Jon asked Carl to teach. Carl said on this trip, two people came to him and told him they had come to the Lord because Sylvia had witnessed to them in hospitals. He delivered the message with even more elaboration about Jesus coming as the second Adam and we can do the works He did and greater works in the power of His resurrection because He went to the Father and sent the holy spirit which abides in us. The message was received with tears of joy and love.
4:27 We went to Brother Martin’s Bible school at 10:30 AM. He had about 12 students, mostly from the villages on the delta of the Danube. Martin introduced the program he was beginning that day in that meeting. He has caught the vision Carl has been trying since the beginning to get initiated in Romania. That vision is for the church to meet in small groups in homes, love one another, pray together, do outreach by demonstrating the power of the holy spirit (John 14:12), and when the house fills up, look among the brothers (or sisters) to see who among them is hearing and doing the message the best and form a new home group around that leader, instead of fighting among yourselves about who is going to be the big chief. This was a great message that should have been recorded. Ed shared that he had traveled with Carl 17 or 18 years and it was Carl who taught him the meaning of John 14:12, not by telling him the meaning of that verse but by showing him the meaning of John 14:12. Carl explained that Vasily, who started the work on the delta died of a broken heart because of the bickering and fighting that was going on out there at the time. He shared that he was probably the last person to talk with him before he died and Vasily told him he had forgiven everyone that was involved. Carl expressed his approval of Brother Martin’s plan and explained that it was what he had been trying to initiate since the beginning and the approach he used in America years ago. He said the devil uses the idea that the church needs buildings to slow the growth of the church. He stressed the need to look among the brothers and sisters and choose those best equipped to lead new home groups. He said that permits rapid growth because as new people come, it is possible to double the numbers quickly and often.
In the afternoon, Carl went to the house of our hostess to minister to the people she knew needed prayer. People were healed of many conditions, which she knew about because she had invited them to receive prayer. People were delivered of heart problems, breathing problems, back problems, depression, fear, a kidney problem, and 10 or more people were delivered of cancer. She said there were so many miracles in her house and she is like the four who opened the roof of the house and let the lame man down on ropes to be healed by Jesus.
She added the following: “Brother Carl prayed for some other women in my house. One of them had leukemia for some years. Her husband is a leader in the church and a man who prays. Both of them are orphans, no help from any brother/sister, no job…The treatment is very expensive and he was crying for help from God. And God heard his child, and sent brother Carl. And when he prayed for her, he commanded in the name of Jesus Christ, healing in her body. They were all crying and feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit working over there, right under our nose. None of us could open the eyes because of that powerful presence. She was healed. She confessed with her mouth. But that was only the beginning of a unforgettable afternoon.
“Soon arrived our pastor’s mother in law. Last fall brother Carl visited our church and he was asked to pay a visit to this lady’s house because she fell down and broke her ribs. When we got there, she began to praise the Lord and speak in tongues. Brother Carl and sister Sheila prayed for her and, although he knew he came to pray for her broken ribs, he said, ‘cancer, get out of her body and every cancer cell die, in the name of Jesus Christ!” and he whispered to me that that was what he felt.. Everyone was amazed! And she said: ‘I was in great pain and asked for His comfort, and I had a dream that a man coming from far away entered my house, anointed me and prayed for me and after that he told me that I was healed. When I saw this brother entering my house, I realized that he was the one in my dream – that’s why I couldn’t speak to you, but in tongues!’ .Brother Carl and sister Sheila had never ever seen her before and came to pray for a woman who fell down, not for cancer. What happenned? A short time ago she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and the doctors amputated her breast. But because she had the surgery in Austria and it was very expensive, she didn’t have chemo therapy afterwards. The Holy Spirit knew that the cancer was still there, but also God wanted her healthy, so he sent His child from the other side of the Planet to do that! Praise the Lord! She was healed and now she came to testify that the doctors sent her to [get] blood tests and all of them showed that she was cancer-free. Alleluia!.
“There was another woman who came. She is the only one in Romania who works for 20 years with the women in prisons. She is dedicated to them. Her mother died 2 months ago, her 46 year old brother died 2 weeks ago (cancer) and the doctors sent her home for [the 3rd time] because they couldn’t operate on her. Cancer was too advanced. We didn’t tell any of this to brother Carl. She said: ‘I had for a very long time in my heels something like nails. They were burning me and I couldn’t walk anymore. I heard about brother Carl, I came to meet him and after he prayed for me, I felt something burning hot in my heels. And it lasted for weeks. When the burn ceased, I could walk as a healthy woman. So, now that I heard he was gonna come again to Romania, I said that I have to meet him again. I have asked Lord to keep me alive and help me get here. Because I know for sure that I am going to be healed!’ She was looking like a normal lady. Only we who knew her well saw that she had lost weight. Brother Carl anointed her and looked at me and said, ‘Cancer, right?’ There were people in that room who met brother Carl for the first time, so they wanted to see with their own eyes the miracles that God made through him. When they saw that the Holy Spirit revealed that diagnostic, too, all of us burst into tears. She was healed. She believes that. Praise the Lord!
“The last woman wanted Brother Carl to pray for her 2 children: one with back ache and one with a little paresis of his hand. Brother Carl asked: ‘What about your husband?’ she said that he was ok. Only a back pain from time to time. Brother Carl said ‘That’s why I asked you. The problems came through his blood line. It’s a curse coming from his family. You have to go home and pray with your husband and repent for your ancesters.’ She said that she had including a genetic test to her son and it showed nothing and they didn’t know what to do anymore and what brother Carl said had logic: her mother in law, an old gypsy woman who lives in the country, curses her sons when they don’t give her enough money. Brother Carl said that that was the cause of her children’s problem.”
4/28 In the morning we spent a good deal of time resting. In the evening we taught at the church where Esther attends. Brother Martin sang a song. Nicky began singing. He has a good strong baritone voice. Martin was accompanying him on the guitar. After the first few verses, Brother Martin began to sing harmony with Nicky, softly at first and increasing his volume until his was the dominant voice and he finished the song. Ed shared a testimony about science and Christianity. Carl gave a powerful word about what we have in Christ and what Jesus paid that we could exercise the power of His resurrection. Jesus gave up everything and walked on this earth as a man, setting the standard that we can follow His example and do the works He did, and greater works than these, as we are men, but because we have Christ in us, we can exercise the power of His resurrection. After that the congregation prayed for Carl. He rested well that night and the next morning was feeling good but needs to rebuild his strength, lost due to inactivity.
4/29 This morning a young couple came to the living room/dining room area of the apartment to receive blessings on their marriage. Carl instructed them concerning their proper roles in the marriage. He told them that the man is the head of the family and the wife should not try to control him, but obey and pray for him, not fight with him, and even if he is wrong, God can make things work out so they are blessed. He told the husband that he must love his wife and listen to her councel. He admonished each of them to not use sex to control the other. He told the wife that it is her job to teach the husband how to love, and he told the husband it is his job to teach the wife how to make wise decisions. She had been unable to get pregnant. Carl removed a curse from her womb and instructed them to not try to have a baby but enjoy each other and the babies will come.
4/30 Brother Martin phoned us at 3:00 AM so we could get ready for the trip home. He took us to the airport. When Ed’s plane landed in Seattle, his cell phone battery was so low it would not opeerate. When Norma picked him up, he put it on the car charger and forgot it. He remembered it at 9:00 PM and saw a missed call from Carl. From the time of the call, he knew Carl was on the ground, state-side.
Carl Fox and Ed Johnson will be travelling to Romania April 22, 2013. Please pray that the Lord is guiding their steps during preparation and execution of this trip, that the Lord’s will is accomplished, safety for their families, and blessings and no backlash to those who are interceding in this endeavor.

September 30, 2012
God Bless you in the name of Jesus Christ!
Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement and support. We had a wonderful trip to Romania. It was great to have Sheila with me and good and faithful Steve Roy. We are thankful for the wonderful things that came to pass.
People in Romania are resilient! There are always things coming up in their lives, too! Sometimes they’re pretty intense because they seem to be living right on the edge. But one thing that is really true in 3rd world countries is that they are not so addicted to the medical profession, pills and doctors as we are here in America. The’ve learned that National Health Plans are a joke! We have yet to learn that. Over there they have FREE Healthcare. But if you have something serious…cancer…heart problems…you have to be put on a waiting list for treatment. And if it’s real urgent….life or death…the schedule can be changed but it takes money! And this is true in many countries. So when these people find out that God heals it’s not an intellectual journey on believing and faith and playing on words and magic shows. They need healing and they need it now!
We saw many cancers healed. I think of one lady that has been a strong Christian since childhood but had been taught many things that held her back. “Well maybe God will heal me.” “IF it’s God’s will.” “IF God loves me enough.” And all the excuses like, “If it’s my time to go.” She had been through all of them with God. Well, God had given her a dream that a man was going to come from far away and she would be healed. And, Glory to God, we prayed and in the name of Jesus Christ she was healed! She had been bedridden for some time but the next night she went to church and declared God had healed her in the name of Jesus Christ! And that’s just one instance.
It seems that ministries over there still want to be like American ministries….singing and praising the Lord and having funerals. But God’s people are not buying it. They are crying out to God! And when and if we do that, God hears us and He will answer our prayers if we believe!
But all our ministries there are moving forward. They continue to evangelize in the villages and bring people to the Lord. And they just keep adding churches! Not because they have a “church-planting-plan.” But because it’s necessary! I pray that day will happen here in the U.S. When it becomes NECESSARY to trust God it seems like we do better. But when things are going along well, we tend to trust other things. I’m not saying healthcare is a bad thing. I’m just saying…”Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) And those things that are added are the things we need to give God the glory for!
I thank God for your love for Him and the determination to continue to stand and grow. We love it! And God and our Lord Jesus Christ really love it!
God Bless you all! I love you and appreciate you and pray for you. And we do not take your support lightly! We continue to do the best we can to make sure that some of the best places to sow seed in this world are right here through CFIM. And your faithfulness is all a part of God’s plan.
God Bless you! I love you and I pray for you! In fact, we all do!
