Dear Poured Out Followers of Messiah Jesus,

Once again I am looking back at a year that has seemingly passed by overnight. The Bible teaches that our lives on this earth are like a vapor, as from a teapot or hot plate (James 4:14). So, as we briefly do a “look back” at 2017, I am thankful for the fruitful work the Lord’s grace has provided for us. Since time is moving so quickly, let’s move forward in 2018 with intentionality.

THE GOSPEL OF MESSIAH JESUS!
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30

This past year we have had so many gospel opportunities in the nations! I will mention two primary examples in which we saw approximately 400 precious souls pray to receive Messiah Jesus in the churches. Additionally, there are many who heard and received the word, but we did not publicly see their hearts converted from darkness to light.

I traveled to Africa twice this year. One trip was to Uganda with Dee Warren, “Mama Dee” as they call her, and the other trip with Ken Merrill—both from the States. What a powerful time of gospel sharing in the churches—and what joy in heaven to see about two hundred souls prayerfully repent and receive Messiah Jesus as Savior and Lord! Much more to share about this Kingdom adventure when we get to the orphans and discipleship snap shots.

Regarding the other gospel trip—I went to Nigeria for the first time in 2017. Pastor Ray Jensen, from Calvary Chapel Beth Shalom in Texas, met me there to join in the work. We were hosted by two special and very anointed men of God—Pastor Innocent and Rex Ajenifuja. In Nigeria, we also saw approximately two hundred precious souls pray to receive Messiah Jesus. A new opened door sits before us—huge churches in many Nigerian cities and towns. I was told that the city of Lagos has about 22,000,000 people. What an opportunity to reach souls for the Lord!

Of course we have our gospel partners Zaphania Makori in Kenya and others whom we support. Pastor Zaphania is winning so many to Messiah Jesus in Kenya, Rwanda, and the Congo. We prayerfully and financially support him monthly. Also at different times through the year we support our West African partner Lassina. He has translated books of the Bible into the language of his Muslim people group—they are getting saved by King Jesus!

DISCIPLESHIP!
“…Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.” John 21:17

Our discipleship ministry in 2017 was so very blessed and for that I give our Father in heaven great thanks! I had Bible teaching and preaching opportunities in Uganda, Nigeria, and our Texas church plant Calvary Chapel Beth Shalom. Thousands of precious souls sat under the teaching of the word including the Watch Therefore Message, which I will share in a moment. Our African partners are also teaching and preaching to make strong and mighty disciples. One of them I did not yet mention is James Okenda in Kenya who is pastoring and raising his family along with a precious adopted daughter named Esther.

ORPHANS!
“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation.” Psalm 68:5

One of the primary objectives of Poured Out For The Nations is to minister to orphans in Africa. We have been doing this for about ten years in many different ways. We work exclusively through our Poured Out partners in Africa—one of whom is Pastor Muhoza Lewi. Brother Lewi is living on a very large refugee camp in Uganda. He, and his talented and extensive team, minister to about 365 orphans and vulnerable children. Please see our website to learn about the “Send It Ahead" program designed to help these precious children. Thanks to our Lord Jesus and the generosity of our donors we have a newly drilled water well with great implications for these children who have a Father in heaven who loves them!

WATCH THEREFORE TV!
“Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” Matthew 24:42

Our TV program began in January 2017. The Watch Therefore message is that of the faithful servant who is watching every day for the Master to return and doing what the Master commanded. It is such an important
message for this hour. In every program, along with the teaching, I share the gospel and urge those who are yet unsaved to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord.

We are on CTN (Christian Television Network) that airs on Direct TV, Dish Network, ROKU, and online streaming. Also, our program is on a satellite that covers 75% of the world. In 2017 Watch Therefore aired twice weekly and we pray and believe it is about to expand in 2018!

We know that our help comes from the Lord, and in 2017 He called many of you to partner with us to be a great portion of that help! Though we must manage resources faithfully, I try not to think too often about how much all of these efforts cost. It is comforting to be reminded frequently that my source is our great Provider Jesus. To all of you whom He raised up to support us prayerfully and financially in 2017—THANK YOU!

May our Great Savior bless you and fill your baskets in 2018!

In the Service of Our Great King Messiah Jesus,

"We are rejoicing to be Poured Out For The Nations!"


Dear Poured Out Followers of Messiah Jesus,

I am going to divide this letter into three components and pray it blesses you tremendously! Here are the three divisions: a word from the Word, an example of fruit from our TV program, and a great development from our “Send It Ahead Program.” First let’s look at a word from the Word.

I do not have to pay very close attention to daily events in the world that surrounds us to know how bad it is out there. What a dark and dangerous thick forest of weirdness this world is today! What great help do I have to keep me on the path of righteousness in this creepy and strange jungle of darkness?

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Today, more than ever, have a daily plan to READ YOUR BIBLE. As I came across this simple yet powerful verse of scripture I stopped and thanked our great Savior Jesus for His powerful word that keeps me like a compass on a journey through a great wilderness! Don’t be surprised when you stumble in the darkness if you neglect to keep the lamp in front of your feet. No, instead keep the narrow path of righteousness, which leads to life, lit with the light of His Word!

WATCH THEREFORE TV

Most every time we record an episode of Watch Therefore, I share the gospel. I also ask for anyone who has prayed to receive Jesus as Lord to contact us so that we can send a brochure instructing them with helpful hints regarding new faith first steps. It is called “How To Begin My New Life in Christ.”

I am confident that many people do receive the Lord without contacting us, but something happened recently for the first time. A dear man contacted our ministry requesting the brochure! What does this mean? This is the first person who has reached out in response to the gospel! Dear friends, this is my heart and I pray yours also: We are here at this moment in time to lead people to their Savior Jesus.

For those who are watching, enjoying, praying for, and even financially supporting the program—I pray this blesses you too! Watch Therefore TV is such a powerful tool to provoke the lukewarm and lost to repent and turn to the Lord. Thanks and let’s keep going!

We just paid Living Water Intl. to drill a water well for our 364 orphan and vulnerable children on a refugee camp in Uganda! I am very thankful for all the support that came in so quickly for the well. Now, please pray with us for the process to be successful and a well that will provide clean drinking water for these precious children! Remember, this water will also be used for crops so the children may eat twice per day since they currently only eat once most days.

Praise and thanks to our great King Jesus!!!

"We are rejoicing to be Poured Out For The Nations!"


Dear Poured Out Friends and Kingdom Partners,

I have such good news for this Poured Out For The Nations update! It is based on the Bible which of course makes everything so much better. In a world gone crazy like the Days of Noah, we can go forward with the joy of the Lord working in His field and blessing precious souls.

Psalm 68:5: A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation.

Matthew 6:19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

For about five months we have been sharing the news of our Send It Ahead program. We cannot take it with us when we go, but we can send it ahead! We are laying our treasures up in heaven by blessing the fatherless on the Nakivale Refugee Camp in Uganda. We are expressing the love of our Father in heaven as we come alongside Pastor Muhoza Lewi, and many other adult refugees who love these 364 orphans and vulnerable children! The good news is that we have raised all the money necessary to drill the water well which is the first priority of the SIA (Send It Ahead) Water, Food, Teachers initiative. Living Water Uganda is going to drill the well and (Lord willing) after the well is functional we will plant crops. Currently, the children only eat once per day and the crops will facilitate two meals.

Refugees often go without education due to the acute day to day situations that prevent them from going to school. Pastor Lewi has established mud brick buildings with licensed teachers who would like to receive $100 monthly. So far, we have been able to provide the ten teachers with $50 each per month. This teacher support has only been made possible through one donor who cannot sustain it long term. Lord willing, this support will come from others soon.

Ken Merrill is our project manager who will be going to Uganda to oversee the drilling. We are also praying for his trip expenses which will be a few thousand dollars. Please pray for this provision and the details for the drilling. We plan on rejoicing together when the clean drinking water is available for the children!

Please also join us in praying for churches where we minister, pastors we help support, new believers we have led to Messiah Jesus and prayed for who are becoming disciples, and other work that would be too much to mention.

It is such a blessing to be Poured Out For The Nations!
