Special warm greetings to all our dear partners and friends,
I am back from two nations in Africa. Thank you for your support in my absence and your faithful giving. I saw His Glory and find myself having a tongue problem. How can I tell about the goodness of the Lord when His kindness comes down like a tsunami? The Lord is doing the impossible, and I find myself in the middle of this incredible wind of His love for humanity.
The sweet taste of this Glorious Gospel cannot be expressed in words. The Lord has helped us minister very effectively in so many areas and empowered many dear pastors for the expansion of His Kingdom. The taste of victory is a sure thing and for that I praise Him. I feel so complete and satisfied in the Lord. I feel like I have just touched His heart by what we have done and put in place on this missions trip. It is so pleasing to His heart when we expand His kingdom and support the poor. Let us never stop doing what we are doing for this is the Gospel demonstrated among His people.
MORE TENTS FOR MORE PASTORS? YES! AGAIN AND AGAIN
On my recent trip into Africa, I met so many new pastors who we plan to give tents for churches. I can never introduce you to them all but want you to meet the following three new pastors whom we will support in the weeks to come. I will introduce more of these pastors every month. Having a church in rural areas is just as important as having a church in wealthy areas. Souls, wherever they are, have the same appraisal value in God’s eyes. The more churches we can plant, the more we will make His presence known. Every neighborhood should hear the Gospel. You and I cannot do it as we can only be at one place at a time. By planting tents for churches, we extend our voice and we leave a Legacy in places we never visited in this life. The local church is the New Testament way of making God known. Let us built churches, and when our time on this earth is over, our Legacy will live forth in the form of all these churches.
The joy among these African leaders when they receive a Bible is indescribable. They kiss the Bible, and everyone wants a picture with me and the Bible. It is actually you, my dear friend, who should be in the picture. When I saw their overwhelming excitement receiving a Bible, I again realized how precious a Bible is to these people. The Muslim people distribute the Koran. You must have seen the aggressive way in which radical Muslims attacked a mall in Kenya as I write with 68 people already dead. I am on my way to Kenya and realized again; that if we neglect to distribute a Bible, we leave a vacuum for another fake religion to take the place. Let us distribute Bibles by the millions. $5 can print and deliver a Bible anywhere in Africa.
Let us again adore and appreciate having a Bible in so many translations. For these African people, it is as if I just gave them the greatest treasure they have ever received. It caused a deep gratefulness in my heart and I felt satisfied in Jesus as I gave them Bibles knowing this is their eternal bread. Thank you to all my dear American partners who made this possible. Let us do it again.
TEARS OF AGNES MWELASE
This was one of my most touching moments. Several months ago, a dear lady from Ghana who lives in West Texas saw the picture of Agnes in one of my DVD’s. She felt led to buy her a towel and dress. I took that with me to South Africa and on the last night of my tour, I ministered to over 800 pastors. I invited Agnes to the front and told her that this gift comes from a Ghana Christian lady who felt to send this gift to her. Agnes could not believe her eyes as she lives with the minimum in life and pastors a church in a squatter camp in one of our tents. She never receives gifts such as this and broke out in tears. In the picture, you will see Agnes dressed up as they told her Pastor Andre wants to see her. I can never tell you the sweet taste of His presence when I gave her this gift.
It is in moments, such as this, that I appreciate Jesus more than ever. When you have nothing in life, a gift of clothes is the ultimate. Partners and friends: Let us do it again and again. Giving to these poor people is the greatest thing you can probably do. I look forward to my next visit and will go out of my way to bless more people with more gifts coming from the USA. The taste of this Gospel is simply the best. Pray for Agnes. She is one of our model pastors who pours out her life cooking meals for more than a thousand people every day and also runs a church. Agnes’s tears of joy will stay with me till the very last day of my life. A towel and dress in Jesus’ name can tell the story of His unending love to people in faraway places.
UPPER ROOM SAVE THE DATE – ENOLA, PENNSYLVANIA, MARCH 27 & 28, 2014.
I urge all pastors and prayer partners to save this date as I believe this could become a key time in His Presence. What happened in previous Upper Room gatherings is crucial. The Spirit of Prayer is a force that can change any landscape. Make sure you stay in touch and get all the necessary information concerning this gathering. It promises to be life changing.
UPPER ROOM SAVE THE DATE – MONT BELL VIEW, SOUTH TEXAS, SEPTEMBER 18 & 19, 2014.
This Upper room gathering will take place in the church of Pastor Donald Gibson. This is another breeding ground for something great. If you are close to this venue, please make sure you save the date for this great event. More info will follow in the months ahead.

HIS POWER COMING YOUR WAY
I am in Wyckoff, New Jersey. The power of the Holy Spirit is in the meetings, and people are the beneficiaries. It is coming your way. I love it when I see the people basking in His presence, tears of freedom and deliverance flowing and Jesus becomes Lord of their lives. Life outside of His presence must be horrible. I can never imagine how people can ever think of living a life outside of knowing Jesus. Make sure you follow the calendar as I believe the Holy Spirit is about to spoil us with His revelation of who this incredible Jesus is. His power and grace is coming your way. Pray that somehow the Lord will connect our ways for something is about to happen.
NUGGETS FOR MEN
A man of honor regrets a discreditable act even when it has worked
A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left. Ecclesiastes 10:2 NASB
No one ever said on their deathbed: I wish I would have spent more time at work!
Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had spent in doing it, and again, all was vanity and a chasing after wind.
Ecclesiastes 2: 11 NRSV
The most difficult secret for a man to keep is the opinion he has of himself.
I warn every one among you…not to have an exaggerated opinion of his own importance; but to rate his ability with sober judgment. Romans 12:3 AMP
CD OF THE MONTH
Nothing we do for God is ever in vain. Not a single act in His name goes unnoticed. God’s word even mentions the importance of a glass of water given in His name. In this CD, you will learn how your current deeds can trigger your future favor in unknown places. The women who built the Upper Room for God’s prophets insist not to meet the king but chose God’s presence. Never did she know that somewhere in her future, she will need the king. Needless to say, if you take care of what is important for God today, He will make sure that you find favor with key people in key places in your future. Doing what is pleasing to God today will bring favor over your life with places and people you can never imagine. This is a word that you must hear in order to understand this incredible truth about our God and how He orchestrates our future with divine favor. This is a crucial word to hear. I bless you as you listen to this word.
