MISSION REPORT GAJAMO, ETHIOPIA NOVEMBER 2018
„FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT A MATTER OF TALK BUT OF POWER“ 1. COR. 4:20
Dear Friends, From 24 to 28 October we had our October evangelistic campaign. This time we set off for the Sidamo region in the south, heading to the village of Gajamo, which hardly anyone has heard of. We were in hilly country, surrounded by lush vegetation, huts, coffee trees and banana plants. The rain gave us trouble throughout the week, and one day was literally a washout because it poured down so hard that no one came. Not until Saturday and Sunday did the weather hold off. The service on Sunday started at 10 a.m. and ended at 4 p.m. Not wanting to be stopped early by the rain, we made the most of the time and just continued straight into the afternoon service. Many had come to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Instead of it raining, the Holy Spirit fell on many believers. Pentecost came to Gajamo and many were ignited by the fire of the Holy Spirit. We experienced more healings in Gajamo than people getting saved. One amazing miracle was the healing of a young man who had been born deaf and mute. He himself could hardly believe that he could hear, and now he has to learn to speak. It is a joy to proclaim the word of God to these simple, hungry people and to see how God confirms his word.
Paul said: “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power” (1 Cor 2:4–5). “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power” (1 Cor 4:20). From 21 to 25 November we have the next evangelistic outreach in Ethiopia, and our last outreach this year is from 13 to 16 December in Nigeria. Thank you so much for having stood with us again this year. Without your financial help it would not be possible. Nonetheless, we are trusting for more financial resources. By the end of the year we will hopefully have translated eight study courses by Kenneth Hagin, which we then want to print and distribute free of charge to pastors and leaders. Furthermore, our equipment will soon arrive in Nigeria and then we will also be evangelizing there regularly. All of this means increased costs. I wish you a blessed Advent and Christmas time!
