Africa Report and the New Year

Our trip to The Dominical Republic in the spring and two trips to Africa in the fall were very productive. The attendance in the Dominican Republic increased significantly and the final count of graduates in Nairobi, Kenya was 450. They were all bishops and pastors. Those bishops and pastors will take the school to their congregations next. We should have about 1000 new graduates this year.

This brief 7 min. testimony by Bishop Mophat Kilioba will present the value of our school better than I could. http://youtu.be/fCK24NuJPkw Bishop Mophat was one of my students in 1985 and is presently bishop over about 3,300 PEFA churches in Kenya. He is insisting all his leaders get an education through N2NCU. Our curriculum is available virtually free of charge to leaders in developing nations. Most of them have a full-time job in addition to pastoring. This is an affordable way for them to get an education without leaving their work.

In Kenya our team established new schools in a refugee camp in Northwestern Kenya. There are about 200,000 refugees there and several pastors among them serving about thirteen churches in the camp. Our plan was to establish schools in Burundi, but the civil unrest kept our team from going there. Instead our team went to Zanzibar to established new schools there. Zanzibar is an island off the coast of Tanzania and is 98% Moslem. Bishop Mophat had a meeting with one of the top leaders of Islam on that Island, so they know what we are doing.

We will be probably returning to the Dominican Republic next spring with the HPIM team. There is a possibility that I will also go to Kenya again with HPIM. Our HPIM theme this year is “Understanding and Activating Spiritual Warfare.” I will return to Africa with N2NCU in the fall for the graduation. All three of these trips will require me to raise funds again.

Meanwhile I am beginning to schedule ministry here in the States. I will be in Pennsylvania with a deliverance ministry next week. The HPIM annual meeting in Sarasota, Florida will be March 8-10. Beyond that I have not yet scheduled ministry. My annual tour of Western NY will probably be in April, but no dates are set at this time.

We have an anonymous donor who has offered $500.00 per month matching funds for any new donors who will pledge a monthly amount for one year. If someone pledges $100.00 monthly, for example, that amount will be contributed by this anonymous donor, so the income to On Word will be $200. If we have $500.00 total new pledges, that will be matched. Let us know if you are interested in being part of this fundraising effort.

As usual, we are looking forward to a very productive year.
