Luke 8:39 "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 with you a little of what the Lord has done through this
ministry, without whom we could do nothing and yet with Him we can
do all things.
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which
Then we thank God for
you, whom God has used through your prayers, faith and support,
knowing that we as a team are working together for the Kingdom of
Corinthians 6:1 "We then, as workers together with him..."
At this time, God has Marge and I
on the front lines of world evangelism and is using you as part of the support
and supply lines. God willing, with Mom sending out this report, Marge and I
will be in Africa and Ukraine.
Marge and I will open the 21st
Three Month Basic Bible School, then go on to Japan for ministry. From there,
God willing, we will return to Ukraine for soul winning, teaching and to
graduate the students from the SCHOOL. Then on to Russia to graduate our 22nd
school (which Walter Zygarewicz opens while Marge and I open the one in Kharkov,
Ukraine) located in the city of Krasnadar, in Southern Russia.
We will end the year in Moscow by
doing a special school of three weeks only for Russian Bishops and Ministers in
Russia and closing with a National Conference for the Russian Union of Churches
consisting of over 1,000 local churches.
James 4:15 KJV - For that ye
ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
As of now, we have had over 2,200
students go through the schools and over 90% are in ministry. Praise the Lord!
We have also personally trained over 7,000 workers in the former USSR in
EVANGELISM. We are supporting or partly supporting over 50 workers in
Russia and Ukraine alone. They are winning souls for Jesus. We have
purchased a total of 131 buildings in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus in the last 12
years in the former USSR. These churches are paid in full. As of
this writing, all the Public Halls, Post Offices, Restaurants, Schools, Museum,
Stores, Supermarkets and large houses have been converted into local churches.
Not one of them belong to us or our ministry. After we purchase and pay
for them, they are given freely and gladly to these precious saints for a ‘House
of Prayer.’ Praise the Lord! Our vision now is for 200 church buildings, which
means 69 more to purchase.
I was asked recently why do I
not make projects so that people can give toward it. First, I believe that
our whole ministry is a project from the Lord. However, when money is designated
toward some building or other need, we put 100% toward that project.
However, you know that we are a faith ministry. We do not ask or ‘beg’ for
offerings. We inform what God is leading us to do and we know that if God
leads us, He makes no mistakes and will meet the need.
We also praise God and let you
know if and when the buildings are paid off. To date all 131 are! Praise the
We do ask people to pray for us.
I know if we can get people to pray for us instead of us asking people to give,
the Holy Spirit can speak to hearts about needs and what they should do.
He never makes a mistake. I believe if God leads us to do some thing, He
will always make a way.
Marge and I will be married 45
years this November 20th. God has enabled our ministry to do 45 years of
missionary evangelism on every continent. I tell her that it will be worth
it all when we see Jesus! You have an important part in this ministry as
you have stood in faith with us in soul winning, planting churches and raising
up leaders and workers through teaching the Word in seminars, schools and other
means of outreaches to the nations. Next month we will give a report on our
recent ministry in Bulgaria and Romania. This is ministry you are helping
us with your prayers and faith.
Please remember we give God
all the Glory for all these outreaches:
INDIA: We are committed to
help support the 3-year Bible College in India with Rev. Harley Fiddler with
$1,000.00 per month, which is about 1/3 of the monthly budget. We are turning
out such fine wonderful workers that are going to the front lines of evangelism
in India. The Harvest is very great in India. Fiddler with $1,000.00 per month,

CHINA: We are sending
$1,000 dollars every month for outreaches in mainland China. This works out to
be $12,000 per year. 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.
JAPAN: We are continuing
to go to Japan and plant seed there. We are believing God for a great harvest
there in these last days. I have accepted the position of President of the Good
Samaritan Bible College near Osaka, Japan. Marge and I plan to go to teach twice
a year for a week or two in addition to outreach and soul winning ministry. I am
still called upon to perform the ministry of an apostle even though I am an
evangelist. We do cherish the honorary title of ’Pastor’ in Japan.
TAIWAN, PHILIPPINES, AFRICA,
BULGARIA, ROMANIA, PARAGRAY, GUATEMALA, EL SALVADOR, MEXICO, ARGENTINA, ETC:
So far in the past 10 months, over $16,000.00 in support and offerings have been
sent or taken by us to these countries for the purpose of evangelism, church
buildings, missionary support and helps, seminars, feeding the poor and children
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 sow and reap with more to give. About 4 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 my heart, 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, if that
is so, then we are going to need 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 45
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 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 Namibia, South Africa, Ukraine, Mexico, Russia and
Japan. 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
King David, we want to make it ours too!
