Easter blessings to all our Global Partners!
It is such an honour for Shirley and me to wish you ‘all the blessings’ that come with this Easter season.
We have been saved through the power of his finished work. We are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation. We live in victory by the power of His endless life. “…Even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ…” (Eph. 2:5). Jesus said, “…I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me”. (Jn.6:57). For the believer, the power of His Easter resurrection is the sure foundation of our faith and secures our eternal future. Rejoice! Rejoice!
The first mission’s trip this year began in January, took me to Indonesia where a full ministry schedule had been prepared for me and went very smoothly. No hitches, not one meeting changed. The power of God was always present to minister to the need of each one who came to Him in sincere faith. Time and time again they later stood to testify how God had answered their prayer and met their need. On numerous occasions many rested in the Spirit as God moved on the crowds.
On this occasion a man walked into the service for the first time; not a church goer. Although it was a Sunday worship service, I felt a strong urge to include a clear salvation segment to which the un-churched man responded and gave his life to Christ. He remained later for an adult Bible study. In the middle of the pastor’s teaching, he shot up his right arm, shouting “I’m healed, I’m healed”. Pastor asked for an explanation, and was told that he was a professional musician and had for a lengthy period had a frozen shoulder and only able to use his left arm. How great is God? First time to church and he is born again and healed all in one service. The Bible declares “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”. (Psa. 107:20). And “… For I am the LORD who heals you”. (Ex.15:26)
Half way through the trip, leaving Indonesia after pre-planning the ministry for our July return there, Sri Lanka was the next stop. Ministry continued there in its various forms, with three services on Sundays. Pastor and church leadership seminars were also held. We have a strong connection with Sri Lanka and our ministry there is on-going. Please keep our work there uppermost on your prayer list; and that land our ministry owns would sell soon to help us continue in in evangelism and church planting.
There are three more trips planned for this year. Apr. 23, Jul.13, Oct. 4th. Each one requires considerable advance planning; sometimes cash advance expenses as in the July trip, together with accommodation, food and airline fares.
As I write to you the present budget calls for $22,000 within the next few weeks to keep us on track, and about half that amount within the next 15 days. Please believe God with Shirley and me that these funds will come quickly and completely so we can get on with all the other ministry, without this added distraction. God is able; He will touch the hearts of those who can speak into this ‘ministry of giving’. An additional emergency expense in Sri Lanka is a pastors and workers families feeding program for about 480 people on a monthly basis since last October.
Generally the funds come as each one is led and is able. Seldom do we see the total answer in one or two donations. (2.Cor.8:1-5). Over the years we have seen so many financial miracles. On one occasion He provided about $65,000 in about 30 days. We believe with you that He will cause this $22,000 to be released in a similar way. As we pray and believe together He will work His miracle.
Please continue to mark your planners for Friday Oct. 3rd. 2014. The evening of the annual sponsored Fellowship Support Dinner. This year is very special as several important anniversaries are being recognised. In the summer special RSVP invitations will be mailed. This will be a capacity attendance, so mark the date now.
You are loved; have a blessed Easter.
Your servants for Jesus sake
John & Shirley Abraham
