Into the Harvest!





It is always great to see men and women going into the full time ministry.  This summer during the general conference several of CTC disciples were placed into full time ministry.  The first picture above is of Pastors Watson and Jammey Lobwij.  They have already been in ministry full time on Arno, Arno.  This summer Waston was ordained and Jammey was commissioned as a Christian worker.  They are doing a great work already on Arno, Arno.
The second picture is of Ryan and Lynn Debrum.  Ryan was commissioned into full time service as Christian worker.  They will be going to Utrik atoll in the north and pastoring the church there.
Here is Dickner and Erica Moore.  Both former disciples of CTC and they will be going to Ebon atoll to start a church there.  Dickner was also commissioned as Christian worker! Glory to God!
Last but not least is Pastor Harold and Loriann Debrum.  Harold was licensed as a minister this summer.  They will return to likiep atoll to continue pastoring the church that he planted there!  God is so good!

All of these young men and women are moving forward building the kingdom of God! They have had great teaching from Pastor Ronald Matthew and all of the Full Gospel leadership.  They were others who are being sent out as well.  We just wanted to highlight a few that had been a part of CTC.  Please keep them in your prayers as they go forward into the harvest field for the Lord!

As always thank you for your faithful prayers and support.....

Papua New Guinea

Papua new guinea map

Good day from the Marshall Islands.  Well we are all set for our next trip here in the pacific.  September 7th, Pastor Robert Leo and myself will be on the way to Papua New Guinea.  This is our next step in following what God has told us to do.  We are visiting all of the nations represented by our church here in the Marshall Islands.  In Majuro English Assembly we have 11 nations represented, glory to God!  Our vision is to raise up the people of God to send them back their nations to spread the Gospel.  We seeing the Spirit of God connecting the nations of the pacific for a mighty push of the Gospel in these last days.  The leaders of the church are seeing denominational walls fall and the church uniting to share the Gospel here in the pacific.  The Lord is raising up leaders in the nations to take their nations for Jesus!

We are so privileged to have a part in what God is doing here in the pacific.  The Lord is raising up leaders here that will boldly proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom in these last days.  We are on a mandate of the Spirit to connect with them to help them accomplish what God has called them to do!

I Corinthians 16:9 For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries!

Over and over again we are seeing doors open for ministry that only the Holy Spirit can open.  As Paul said it is a great door and an effectual one!  Another translation says:

I Corinthians 16: 9 (Amplified) For a wide door of opportunity for effectual [service] has opened to me [there, a great and promising one], and [there are] many adversaries

I Corinthians 16:9 (NLT) There is a wide- open door for a great work here, although many oppose me!

It is a door of opportunity for service and it is great and promising.  It is a time to step through and follow the leading of the Spirit!  We know as we follow the call that people will be saved, healed, delivered, set free and leaders will be encouraged in the Lord!  It is a time to move and we are not missing the leading of the Spirit!  Praise the Lord!  Robert and I will depart of the 7th of September to Brisbane, Australia!  On the 9th of September we will fly to Port Moresby and then on to Losuia, Papua New Guinea Pastor Robert's home island.  We will spend one week there ministering and seeing the people there.  On the 17th of September will return to Port Moresby and on the 18th be in the city of Lae.  There will will take part in a crusade and meet with churches there.  From there on the 21st back into Port Moresby and then on the 22nd begin our return trip back to Majuro.  

We are expecting great things to happen while we are there.  I want to take time to ask you today to pray about this time of ministry.  Join with us in prayer that as the Spirit leads we will follow.  Agree with us for supernatural connections and that the Spirit will fall everywhere we go.  In this time that we live in, the last days, I believe as we step out in faith God will move in power.  We have some money raised already but are believing God for 2200.00 more.  This is the bare minimums we need to go.  That is our airfare there and back!  We know that God will provide above and beyond what we ask for.  If you like to help out on this trip you can email us and we can let you know how to send your donations.  You can also go to our web site at www.missionary-ventures.org follow the links and you can give directly online.  It will explain how to do it!  Glory to God!  We to thank you in advance for your prayers and support.  We know where there is vision there is provision!  

3 John 1:2 (AMP) Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers

Ministry Needs!

20121026 122014

Good day from the Marshall Islands.  Wow things are growing and moving here in the islands.  God by His Spirit is moving among the Marshallese and among the islands of the sea!  Our church, Majuro English Assembly, (MEA), is on the move.  We have expanded out walls, redone out bathrooms and but another roof on the building.  Our next upcoming project will be to expand our children's ministry area.  We are overloaded with kids.  Glory to God!  It is a great problem to have. We do have some other needs that we are believing God to provide for and would like to let you know about!

 

First of all we need Bibles.  We were so blessed with new testaments for all of our children during summer camp/VBS this year.  Now we are needing 50 Bible for our young people and adults here at the church and in Majuro.  Secondly we need a sound system upgrade.  Here sound systems are out of sight price wise is you can get a good one.  We are looking to upgrade to a digital board, obtain at least 5 new microphones and cables to get everything up and running.  Between the weather and wear and tear the system we have needs to be changed out.  Used or new does not matter to us.  If you know of a church or group that is upgrading and selling their equipment let us know!  We are in the market for it.  We are also believing God for a good travel projector as we travel teaching the word of God!  We are looking for something small and battery operated!  Where there is vision there is provision.  We thank God for the privilege of serving Him here in the Pacific!

Please agree with us in prayer for these needs and if you have a source let us know!  Glory to God!  Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and support!  God bless and have a great day in the name of Jesus!
