Vision for Israel Update


Dear Friends - We realize that there are many wonderful ministries around the world, doing important work for the good of God’s children. We wanted you to know that your choice to partner with Vision for Israel this year has been an enormous blessing for us and especially for those who are in desperate need in Israel.

Your gifts have made it possible for underprivileged families, children, and the elderly to live happier, healthier, and more productive lives. For those of us born and raised in Israel - having witnessed firsthand the needs of our community - it gives us a special perspective for all that you do.

You are the true lovers of Israel - and from afar you reach out to give aid to those in desperate need. We are your hands and eyes. Let’s all continue to bless what God blesses, and be
active in the betterment of our nation. We encourage you to know how your love impacted the lives of so many people.

With Love and Joy for this new year, Barry and Batya

“For the poor will never cease from the land therefore I command you saying, “You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy in your land.” Deuteronomy 15:11

Mercy Multiplied

From Adia


Before Mercy, my life was a black void of drinking and taking over 23 sleeping pills at night. I was depressed, hopeless, and sinking fast.

I found out about Mercy through an online chat with a graduate. I decided to apply because I knew my life would be very short, and the end would be a dark one if I didn’t seek out help.

When I arrived at Mercy, I was numb and fearful. A turning point for me was when Bayside Worship came, and Zoro spoke to us about childlike faith and holding onto that little girl inside of us even if we have to revive her by spiritual CPR. This discussion touched me, and I began to allow Jesus to revive the lost child within me.

While at Mercy, Jesus picked up my broken, shattered life and set my feet firm on the ground. I live in His lighthouse, where I am loved, challenged, protected, and adored!

After Mercy, I plan to begin my journey as a social worker for children with developmental delays.

To the donors, I am so grateful for you sowing into my future by partnering with Mercy Multiplied! You don’t know me. I was a face in a crowd – a broken girl who fell through the cracks. Because of you, I am here today with the love of God in my heart and a healthy mind, body, and soul.
Thank you ever so much from the deepest part of my spirit

MISSION COLOMBIA
November 2019


Dear Pastor Dan and Church Family,
Here at Mision Columbia one of our evangelistic impact strategies is to bring an experience of God’s love & power to needy and destitute communities (barrios) in ourcity. Parallel to the powerful message of preaching the message of Jesus, we bring social assistance in donations, groceries, gifts, clothes, toys, medical assistance, dental care, hair dressing, and recreational services.


This year we focused our efforts on Santa Cecilia, a neighborhood (barrio) embedded in the highest part of the hills that border the city of Bogata. We supported a work by Pastors that have graduated from our Bible training programs. They have been working with unprotected children, rescued from drugs, and vulnerable families in the sector.

At Mision Colombia we supported that good work by developing a massive evangelistic day and bringing social assistance to the community. We had over 350 members join us in the Gospel invasion of the sector. We saw many families being blessed, happy children, and more than 400 people received the message of salvation ! The love of God was evident and moving in the hearts of the “pueblo” in Santa Cecilia. We thank God for this wonderful experience and the spiritual harvest.


Yours for the Harvest,
John and Alba

Isa Bajalia

Missions

August, 2019

Greetings from Isa:


Thank you for contributing towards the next missions outreach in the Persian Gulf, and the Philippines. Our prayer is that you are abundantly blessed for helping to expand the Kingdom of God Globally.


Persian Gulf; We are excited about continued confirmed reports that large segments of the communities in this part of the World are receiving Jesus as their Savior. It is also an honor for me to be a part of the Ministry Team who will be in conferences in several Nations where it is well known that there is hostility towards the Gospel Message and Missionaries.


Southeast Asia; After a brief time in the Persian Gulf, Nancy and I will then travel to the Philippines where we will stay until we complete our assignment. Thank you for all of the clothing items and the vitamins that you so graciously provided for distribution among the families at the three outreach sites. Our goal is to be a support to the local Church, especially in the more primitive areas of Mindanao. We thank you because we are aware that none of this could ever happen without your help.


Encouragement - Such an amazing truth from God's Word. Galatians 5; 6 NLT, When we place our Faith in Christ Jesus there is no benefit in being circumcised or being uncircumcised, what is important is Faith expressing itself in Love. We have always been taught that our Faith can only work if we walk in love towards others. While I believe that this is true, we forget that it is not only how we love, but also how much HE loves us. It always takes my Faith to another level when I realize how much He loves me.


Thank you for praying for me as I run my race in missions. I still have my eyes on the prize!

Your brother, Isa

Kenneth Hagin Ministries Update
Rhema Graduates Worldwide


When we carry the mandate of teaching faith, hope, and love to the world, we are building foundations. Every Rhema graduate worldwide was trained with s strong foundation of faith to pursue God’s calling. It can’t happen any other way!


Jason and Diang Daugherty head up a Rhema campus in India. One time they had to find a new location for the Rhema campus in Shillong. That facility needed not only classroom space but also a place to house the students. The Daugherty’s faith foundation saw them through. They secured a new building and moved furniture into it. But then local authorities would not give them permission to use the building for a school. Jason said, “I told my wife, ‘We are teaching people to walk by faith. We learned by precept and example at Rhema, and we’re going to demonstrate the same thing. If our graduates are going to catch it, we have to live it.’ “ Permission was granted 30 minutes before orientation started!


The Lord started dealing with Walker and Haley Schurz in Zambia to build an evening school. Among the students is the Speaker of the House of Parliament. In 2017, one of their church members came to Kindle the Flame. During the conference Lynette Hagin prophesied that women in the audience would rise to high places of influence. Two months later the President of Zambia informed this church member that he was appointing her as a judge in the High Court of Zambia. God is reaching people of influence!
 

These are two of the thousands of stories we could tell. It is the fruit of your giving! Your faithfulness and dedication have brought this foundation of faith to nations. I had a dream of what’s happening now all over the world. But it didn’t happen right away. In 1980 I spoke it out by the Spirit of God. It wasn’t until 1999 that the first international Rhema campus started. It has been growing ever since. We have now graduated almost 85,000 students.


Yours in Christ,
Kenneth W. Hagin
