Pastors Curt and Linda Stennis traveled to Africa on January 2—10 as the guest speakers for the 12th Annual Greater Works Conference. The mission trip began with a full day in London, England. There, the team toured Central London viewing Kensington Palace and other famous sites. Uganda itself is known as Africa’s “friendliness country” because of its tradition of hospitality common to its culturally diverse populace. This amiable quality extends to every beautiful city beginning with Entebbe which has a modern international airport. Host Pastor Tom Godwin (a member of In Covenant Ministries Fellowship) has been planning this week long conference since the Summer of 2005. To accommodate the thousands from surrounding cities the event was held at the

Sebei College in Kapchorwa. Kapchorwa is a city built 7,000 feet above sea level on beautiful Mt. Elgon. The host hotel was located on one of the peaks of Mt. Elgon. People came from far and near to pack the Big Gospel Tent’s three daily sessions and workshops. On Thursday afternoon there were workshops for Pastors, their wives, church leaders and civic and business leaders. The Holy Spirit through the gifts of Word of Wisdom and the Word of Knowledge ministered healing and deliverance in the special evening service. Many were healed of back conditions, kidney and stomach problems, throat conditions, arthritic pain in the limbs, skin rashes and eye conditions. Many people came to the stage to describe their condition and testify of their
miraculous healing. The conference closed with prayer and anointing with oil for all on Friday evening. On Saturday the team went on a mountain climbing expedition to Mount Elgon’s second highest peak. There they viewed the city below, the picturesque Sipi Falls and the beautiful banana plantations. There were two dynamic services at host Pastor Tom Godwin’s Christ Glorious Church on Sunday. There was standing-room-only in both services. Kim Franklin and Deacon Sherman Taylor (our ministry team) assisted in teaching classes during the conference. The also shared in the ministry in the Sunday afternoon service. The trip concluded with a day of souvenir shopping in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.

Testimonial Letter From Our Host, Pastor Tom Godwin Dear Pastor Curt and Linda Stennis, With much humility I want to say on behalf of my family, The Greater Works Conference and Christ Glorious Church , thank you for accepting to obey God to come over to Uganda . During our discussions we never knew exactly what God would do through your prophetic ministry. Now we are overwhelmed beyond accountability to say what the Lord did. The great ministry of the Holy Ghost to teach, prophesy, heal, deliver and diverse miracles are all clear witness of the Lord’s confirmation of His work and your relationship with us. The Lord is great and worthy to be praised all the time. Despite of the over shooting
budget for the conference there are things that the Lord did that would never have been possible had we not obeyed the Lord to organize this conference and your obedience. Testimonies are still coming in. The Lord’s name is glorified and all those who stood with you and us during this time are encouraged. The world will know that God has chosen you and given you an anointing for the nations of the world. God bless you much

How Wonderful It Is To Hear Of What The Lord Has Done! Juliet one day woke up only to discover her hand was in so much pain. Many times it would get paralyzed. This condition continued for three years. But during the time of the ministry by Pastors Curtis and Linda Stennis she was miraculously healed and she praises the Lord for that miracle.
Thursday was a great evening as the presence of God was so heavy in the conference. There were many that God healed that night. There was an elderly lady who had trouble with her left leg. I was told by the pastors that she was going through terrible pain that at one point , they had been called to pray for her in a private room before the Stennisâ€™ arrived. The same pain continued until that evening when God revealed to the Stennis during healing ministry of the same case and immediately she got healed and began to praise the Lord. She is still praising God to this day.

F or t he p as t year Ap ollo Chemandwa had funny blockage on his throat which made it difficult for him to swallow. He went to see doctors and specialists, yet the situation was not getting better. He decided to spend time in the conference during the times of prayer and fasting. On Sunday during the service God spoke through Pastors Stennis that God was healing someone with throat problem. There and then he got his miracle. HE IS TESTIFYING EVERYDAY TO GLORY OF GOD.

The New Year at Salvation and Deliverance began with excitement and cheer in our annual Victory Sunday service on Sunday, January 1. Members, friends and visitors came from throughout the surrounding cities and suburbs. The enthusiasm was great as entire families worshipped and rejoiced on the first day of the first week of the New Year. This service is characterized by our unity of wearing apparel that includes the color gold which represents “victory.” Everyone who attends arrives with great anticipation of receiving a fresh anointing, prayer, and prophetic insight for the coming year. According to the Word of the Lord spoken by Pastors Curtis and Linda, “2006 is the Year of Manifestation and Fulfillment.” Many promises God made in our lives years ago will come into fruition this year. Habakkuk 2:2 says "Write my answer on a billboard, large and clear, so that anyone can read it at a glance and rush to tell the others.” It is time to throw yourself a “coming out party” and declare your year of jubilee. Take your prophetic promises off the shelf. Take them out of your “hope chest” for this is the year of manifestations.

The commission to “Go ye into all the word and preach the gospel” is the focal point of our missions and outreach. There are several groups that fulfill this call throughout the city and suburbs ministering weekly in correctional facilities, hospitals, senior care homes, homeless missions, women’s shelters and other locations. Periodically special services and events are held at these locations to encourage the participants. On December 26, 2005, a group of our Ministers took gifts of winter scarves and hats to the Jackson Square Nursing Home. in Chicago. There was plenty of Christmas cheer that filled the air and smiles galore as the residents received their gifts. The love and spirit of the Christmas season radiated throughout as all joined in and sang Christmas carols. The Ministers shared encouraging words and prayed for the residents. Please remember the elderly and homebound in your prayers.
