UPDATE ON MINISTRY OUTREACHES 2009
Vol 46 - #10
Phil 4:19 KJV But my God shall supply all your need according to
his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Recently we were contacted by the brethren in Russia with whom we
have be working in ministry, that there was a building in the city
of Orel, Russia which was for sale. It could be converted into a
church building. The cost was four thousand US dollars. We made an
almost immediate commitment of $3,000.00 to the project if the
members of the congregation of this ‘HOUSE OF PRAYER’ would raise
the rest of the cost and enough to remodel it for their church
building. They quickly agreed to this. However, while we make these
commitments by faith, God was listening and the Word tells us in
(Isa 65:24 KJV) And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I
will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
This is what happened. Before we could even
inform our prayer partners about this project and need, God was
already working behind the scenes. Our pastor friend and fellow
worker Darrell who has taught in a number of the Bible Training
Schools in Armenia, Ukraine and Russia, emailed me that they were
sending a check in the mail to help us buy a building for a church.
It was enough to fulfill our commitment and enough to help us give
our promised support for 3 months to the 12 workers we are
supporting in Russia. Truly the Word still works. Jesus said that
His Word never changes.
Matt 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not
Marge and I have seen God do this time after time
for all of our 47 years of marriage and ministry. November 20th will
be our 47th anniversary and I thank God for His faithfulness to us
year after year. We have preached by faith and we have trusted God
to supply every need for every project and out reach God has given
us to do .
Phil 4:19 KJV But my God shall supply all your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
We are returning to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala this month. On 22
acres, you see one of the most beautiful Bible School campuses we
have seen anywhere on the mission field. It is carried on by
Clarence and Marion (Zirkle) Wright. God has given them a number of
wonderful missionaries who work with them.
Three years ago we helped to graduate 703
students from this 3-year Bible College. Harley Fiddler and I had
the privilege of teaching these students and also over 600 workers
in a seminar. They were from every country in Central America.
We had evangelistic meetings at night and saw over
500 believers make a commitment to become soulwinners. God stretched
forth His hand with signs and wonders Many invitations have since
come to us from all over Central America to please come and hold
soul winning crusades and seminars. Even in Cuba the door is opening
for our ministry. Please pray for us (Dan 4:2 KJV) I thought it
good to show the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought
JAPAN: The brethren there are anxious for us to
return. They are waiting on us to preach, teach, encourage, answer
questions and ordain and set forth workers for the ministry. They
want us to help them to strengthen churches with our ministry. We
are also going to dedicate the new parsonage that the Snipes have
built next to their new church. We dedicated the church last year.
We will be ministering in the 25th year of celebration of the Good
Samaritan Church. Although I know our calling, we are evangelists,
we do not call ourselves apostles. However, many times in different
parts of the world, we are called upon to do apostolic ministry. We
thank God for the privilege to do this work for Him. We believe God
to bless in this ministry. We dearly love the Japanese Christians.
The Japanese are very kind and polite people. It
will be good to see our dear friends Pastor and Sister Aoki, also
Jim and Darla Snipe. They are representatives for The Abundant Life
Crusades ministry in Japan. God has been blessing the ministry and
we are sure it is because you are praying for us. Please continue to
do so... Thank you for your prayers. (Heb 2:4 KJV) God also
bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers
miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will.
God bless you and yours is our daily prayer.
Tony & Marge Abram.
