Report on Africa Trip

11/28/2015 1 comment

In early November AJ Baisch and I were privileged to speak at three seminars in Kenya. When we returned I had only two “work days” before I was scheduled to go to West Boylston, MA for a weekend ministry, then Thanksgiving came with a visit from our oldest son, LeRon, from Norway. I say all this as an “apology” for being so long to report on the Africa trip.

Harvest Preparation International Ministries (HPIM) sent AJ and me as a team to Kenya. They had arranged and promoted the seminars so that all we had to do was show up and teach. Our assigned topic was “Sent as Pure Light into Darkness.” Each of our three seminars attracted pastors and bishops from several different denominations. Without knowing the diversity of the groups, we spoke of the need for unity of the Spirit before our light would have any effect.

Our teaching and preaching dovetailed into one another with a great impact on the leaders present. It was like AJ’s preaching prepared the ground for my teaching and my teaching prepared the ground for his next message. All this was without any plan on our part. AJ is more like a motivator and I am more like an encourager. His messages motivated people to move “as one” and mine encouraged people to go forward in the unity of the kingdom.

At times, in all three seminars, we could almost feel the atmosphere vibrating with energy from what our Father was doing among the church leaders. We learned afterward that there had been some disunity and lack of cooperation hovering among them when the meetings were being planned. According to the reports of the bishops in charge of arranging the meetings, that disunity was healed completely by the time the sessions were over.

There were pastors and bishops from Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. I overheard a mention of one from The Congo, but I’m not certain. At any rate, the impact of our messages will make a difference in several of the nations in Africa.

Thanks to all of you who provided finances and prayed for us on this trip. We could not do what we do without your support and encouragement. Our “in country expenses” exceeded what we planned for. If we go again, we will be prepared.

On December 7 I will be going to Kenya again with N2NCU to participate in the graduation of about 1,000 students with an Associate’s Degree and some with a Bachelor’s Degree. If you would like to partner with us on this trip, send your check to On Word Ministries, 106 Ashford Ct, Myrtle Beach, SC 29588 or go online and send it through our website: www. http://onword.org/donate.htm

Looking forward,
