ABUNDANT LIFE CRUSADES UPDATE
 ON MINISTRY OUTREACHES 2005

Tony & Marge Abram
VOL. XXXXII NO. 9


(Dan 4:2 KJV) I thought it good to show the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me. (Luke 8:39 KJV) Return to thine own house, and show how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.

We would like to share a little of what this ministry has been doing, through the Lord, without whom we could do nothing, yet with Him, we can do all things. (Phil 4:13 KJV) I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  Then, we thank God for you, whom God has used through your prayers, faith and support, knowing that we are a team, working together for the Kingdom of God. (2 Cor 6:1 KJV) We then, as workers together with him.

God willing, upon Mom sending out this report, Marge and I will either be in Zambia or South Africa in seminars with Harley Fiddler. From there, our ministry will take us to Ukraine to start our 15th three-Month Basic Bible Training School, then on to Argentina for ministry in Cordoba (a city we have not been to before ministry in Argentina.) and to both Spanish and Slavic works in Buenos Aires.  From there, we go to Japan for ministry before returning to Ukraine just before Christmas to teach and graduate the students.  In January of 2006, we trust to start the 16th Three Month Basic Bible Training School in another city in the former USSR with Walter Zygarewicz. (James 4:15 KJV) For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

Up to this time we have had over 1,000 students go through the schools and over 90% are in ministry. Praise the Lord! We would like to give you a list of the major outreach expenditures of our ministry so far this year and what we plan for the remainder of the year. Please remember to give God all the Glory with us for what He has enabled our ministry to do over the 43 years of missionary evangelism. You have an important part in this as you have stood with us in faith and with your prayers in this ministry of soul winning, planting churches and raising up leaders and workers through teaching the Word in seminars, schools and other means.

UKRAINE AND RUSSIA:
So far this year, we have purchased 16 buildings in Ukraine for less than $20,000 US dollars. We trust to buy a few more as the Lord makes the way. In the last decade, since the fall of communism, we have purchased a total of 86 buildings in the former USSR for local churches. We are supporting 54 workers at this time in Russia and Ukraine at a cost of $1975.00 per month which works out to less than $40 per month each to carry on the work of evangelists, pastors and teachers. We help them maintain a full time ministry of soul winning.  Our star worker is still Sister Valentina, who went through our school 7 years ago.  She has opened 4 more churches, now making a total of 29 since she graduated.  She has trained other workers who are working with her, helping her look after these 29 works. You are helping us support her and her workers with $150 per month.  Our ministry has pledged $5,000 to help with each school. We are in our second school this year. Working with Walter Zygarewicz, we have supported 16 Basic Bible Training Schools which have already trained over 1,000 workers with over 90% of those trained in ministry today.  This is the basic amount our ministry, with your help, is investing in the former USSR, but in addition we still are planting churches, (64 to date) conducting crusades and seminars.  This is, of course, an additional cost as the people are still struggling. We have also invested $2,500 in the reprinting of my Russian book ?Secrets to Successful Christian Living.

INDIA:
We are committed to help support the Three year Bible College in India with Harley Fiddler with $800.00 per month, which is about 1/3 of the monthly budget. In addition, we have supported this year alone, an additional $7665.00 for our crusade, seminar, 19 native outreach crusades, Bibles, the graduation of 23 students, the feeding of over 1100 people and helping pay for a new building and additional land for the Bible School. We will take on about 15 of our graduates who will win souls and plant new churches in unreached areas with, God willing, $75.00 per month so they can be in full time ministry.

Bangladesh:
We have sent more than $2,500 to help the suffering from the Tsunami there. When I say we, I am including you. God uses churches and people just like you to make possible what we give and are able to do on the various mission fields.

CHINA:
We are sending $1,000 dollars every other month for out reaches in mainland China. This works out to be $6,000 per year or $500 per month. The money is used as follows: $300.00 for printing Bibles, $300.00 for Cell groups in China, $100.00 for Church Leader?s support in China, $100.00 for imprisoned Christian?s families in China, $100.00 for purchasing Bibles in China and $100.00 for Training Schools in China.

TAIWAN, PHILIPPINES, JAPAN, AFRICA, ARGENTINA, ETC:
So far this year, over $12,000 has been sent or taken by us to these countries for the purpose of Evangelism, church buildings, missionary support and helps, seminars and crusades.

At this writing, we still have 4 more months for the year. We do not know what new doors of opportunity God may yet open. We feel that giving what we have received is God?s plan to give us more to give. I am not sure that I have ever written this in a newsletter. But about 2 years ago I was praying concerning Marge and my ministry that God would do more in our latter years than in our former years. The Lord spoke to me, that in addition to soul winning, planting churches and raising up disciples through teaching, He was also going to make us dispensers of His finances. I reasoned with myself, that if that is so, then we are going to have to have finances to be able to dispense. The Word came to me in: Psalms 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I believe that God can always sell a few cattle and give to this ministry so that we can share with those who need and can best utilize it for the Kingdom of God. Marge and I have always tried to be good stewards of what God has placed in our hands.

I believe that through the 43 years of World Evangelism, we have learned from the Lord and through experience where finances can bring the best results in the harvest fields of God. We continue to use the promise in James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.  We need His wisdom and His leading in all we do. Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  We do not know exactly how God is going to do it. However, I believe God?s Word to me and that we will, through Him, and people just like you, carry on the Work of God in Missionary Evangelism.

Please continue to pray for our ministry yet this year in Zambia, South Africa, Ukraine, Argentina and Japan. Next year, we trust to begin the New Year in Ukraine, opening School number 16 and in February we will be in Taiwan, Republic of China and not confirmed yet, ministry in Israel in March. However, this is our plan. God has the perfect plan and we want to always be open and willing to follow His plan of ministry. You, however, have a part in this ministry as you stand in faith and pray for us. We still believe, the more praying, the more God will do. God bless you and yours is our daily prayer.

We close this newsletter with a promise God made real to Marge and she shared it with me. Psalms 71:17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. 18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come. This was a wonderful prayer by David, we want to make it ours too!

A Positive Thought:
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it. He sends you flowers every spring, and a sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He could live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart. What about the Christmas gift He sent you in Bethlehem; not to mention that Friday at Calvary. Face it, He loves you. God Bless you and yours is our daily prayer.
On behalf of this generation, your forever friends,
Tony and Marge Abram
