This Month: Sri Lanka Honduras Tanzania End of Year Report
Dear Joshua Nations Partner,
Celebrating Christ Truly we celebrate this season in many different ways, but it is about the birth of Jesus. God birthed Jesus through a virgin Mary. That wonder of all wonders continues in the hearts of those who embrace Jesus as their Savior and as their lifestyle. For many it is head knowledge, but for others it is a daily heart experience of indescribable joy. Many have fallen away because it is a religion and not a vital relationship. God wants to birth this amazing reality afresh and anew in your heart. This is a season of birthing. Love Him and Adore Him daily and you will experience a new and wonderful journey.
Greetings in the name of Jesus, our Savior! I am at home now, listening to beautiful Christmas music, signing Christmas cards, watching it snow and taking it easy. What a beautiful season. It is now time to rest, relax, refresh, re-examine the work we accomplished in 2011 and reload for 2012. Tanzania Before I left to go to Sri Lanka, I met with Pat Loomis. Pat is one of our new JN global representatives working in Tanzania with the translation help of Bishop Nathaniel. He will be setting up Bible Training Centers in four major cities in Tanzania next May. Bishop Nathaniel works with Pat Loomis as a translator
I have just returned from Sri Lanka. After thirty hours of travel, we landed at 3:15 a.m., and then drove another five hours to the conference center in Hatton. We had some breakfast and the conference began that very Recommended Reading: afternoon. Several days later, we drove back to The Mary Miracle by Jack Hayford Colombo for another conference. The Lord also provided opportunities to minister in churches on Sunday. The Lord gave us great visitation with healings and deliverances. Twenty-eight people accepted Jesus Christ and another sixty-five committed to start Bible Training Centers. This was a very fruitful trip! Philippines Baerbel, YWAM leader in Davao, helped build this house for a widow lady. We are so proud of this good work, ministering help and hope in the name of Jesus Christ. Way to go Baerbel!
