“We are rejoicing to be Poured Out For The Nations!”


SPECIAL UNGANDA MISSION UPDATE

Dear Poured Out Followers of Our Dear Messiah Jesus,

What an amazingly fruitful trip we had in Uganda!!! In this letter I will do my best to communicate a few of the things we experienced-there was so much. It was like a month of fruitful labor in eight days. Dee Warren (Mama Dee), Ken Merrill, and myself were the incoming team hosted by our partner Pastor Muhoza Lewi.

We spent our time in two primary environments-church meetings and the Nakivale Refugee Camp. Nakivale has about 124,000 people from nine African countries who have fled from violence and now live on the sprawling countryside camp. In the area of the camp we worked there is no running water and no electricity.

Response To The Gospel!

During this trip we saw about eighty-five precious souls pray to receive Jesus as Lord! Sadly, we are in a modern church environment that facilitates programs, entertainment, and good morals, but often times not much in the way of people being saved from their sin and the terrible place called hell! So, let’s remember what our Savior told us:
 
Matthew 18:11
For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.

Luke 15:7
I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over ones inner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

 

So, though we do not know for sure which ones of those who prayed truly repented and received Messiah Jesus-we rejoice with heaven for those who truly did! Many of those who prayed are orphaned and vulnerable children-praise King Jesus!

“Send It Ahead” Uganda Orphan Refugee Program!

We know that our Lord told us that we should lay up our treasures in heaven. We cannot take it with us when we go, but we can “Send It Ahead”! Pastor Lewi has undertaken a huge task of caring for and educating 364 orphans on this camp! They were wandering around dirty, neglected, and without schooling. Today they are clean, cared for, and going to a little school he started. There are ten teachers who receive almost no pay.  These children only eat one meal per day, the drinking water is very compromised, and the teachers need to be paid $100 monthly.
 
So, under the “Send It Ahead” program we have our first initiatives: WFT. 
Water: Water well with a pump, 10,000 liter tank, piping,and drip irrigation.

Food:Five acres of crops that will be made possible by the water project.

Teachers: Monthly pay ($1000) for 10 teachers.

 

Ken Merrill, who has the experience of managing the building and operations of a three million dollar orphan village in Rwanda, is the project manager. Dee Warren, who has much experience in Africa with orphans and widows, is also involved in planning and development. We are putting a plan together and details will be on our website soon. You can begin praying and paying for the project immediately. Of course all donations are tax deductible. So, SEND IT AHEAD!

Pastors and Women’s Conferences

 “Mama Dee” led two ladies conferences in Uganda. One was on the camp and another in a church. Remember, many of these ladies are widows and some were made so by the violence from which many fled into Uganda. These ladies have seen horrors that are beyond the imagination of those in the USA. It is just hard to associate with such suffering. But our compassionate Savior has given Mama Dee a heart for these precious ladies.

 

I led two pastors conferences at the same time as the Ladies conferences. They were both well attended and received. Our Watch Therefore, Poured Out, and Blessing Israeli Believers partners joined together to help provide special meals for the pastors, ladies, and orphan and vulnerable children-Hallelujah!

 

Once again, I say that only by eternity will we be able to measure the totality of the fruit from this trip! To all who prayerfully and financially participated-I thank you, but more importantly know that together we are bearing fruit that will remain! (John 15:16)

“We are rejoicing to be Poured Out For The Nations!”


Dear Poured Out Followers of Our Dear Messiah Jesus,

Dov Schwarz here with an update of our plans to go out with the gospel and to visit precious orphans and widows at a refugee camp in Uganda. Two special people from the USA are joining me on this trip. I am departing from Israel to meet them. One is Dee Warren from the Houston, TX area (the Africans call her “Mama Dee”). The other is Ken Merrill departing from Washington State. In this letter I would like you to hear from them regarding this special Kingdom outreach.

Mama Dee
Being a witness for Jesus Christ has profound effects in Africa where women are valued lower than livestock. There is no greater joy than showing them in Scripture how much our Lord and Savior values even them. Here is the testimony of a widow, who lost her husband and children in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda: “What you have told us here today regarding God, we did not know. We will go back and tell those who were unable to come today.” Not realizing American women have problems too, I am also able to assure them through Scripture the Lord who bound up my broken heart will do the same for them. Orphans particularly love hearing that Jesus has gone to prepare a place for believers, yes, even them.

Romans 10:14-15 asks how people will know about the Lord unless someone goes to them. The answer is they will not know. I look forward to sharing the Truth of scripture with the women and children on the Watch Therefore Ministries/Poured Out For The Nations trip to Uganda in May, 2017. Dee Warren

Ken Merrill
I am looking forward to this, my third mission trip to Africa with Pastor Dov and Poured Out for the Nations, but the first to the refugee camp in southern Uganda to serve “the least of these”. My name is Ken Merrill, now residing in Vancouver WA, where my wife Bev and I serve in our local church. I retired from the Alaska State Troopers after 20 years of service, after retiring Bev and I served nearly 4 years as missionaries in Rwanda, Africa where we helped to build a village for orphans, where I was the village director. Upon returning to the United States I returned to school finishing my Bachelors degree in Biblical Foundations at Multnomah University.

As I stated above this will be my third trip to Africa with Dov. The first two were spent in Rwanda and the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo). Those trips had a two prong agenda with one ultimate goal. The goal with those trips as well as this up coming trip to Uganda remains the same, to see as many souls as possible come to know the eternal saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This goal was accomplished, on the one prong of Bible teaching and preaching of Pastor Dov, in local churches and pastor conferences. The other prong was to have a long term presence working with Pastor Lewi, a Rwandan and power of the Lord.

On our original trip we were looking at ways to start another village for Rwandan orphans and other vulnerable children along the same idea of what I had worked with before. As we spoke with officials within the government it became apparent that the philosophy concerning orphans and orphanages within Rwanda had changed, that instead of orphan villages they preferred returning the orphans to their own villages to live with relatives or adoptive parents. Which of course, is the best option for these children.

We modified our original plan of a village to a boarding school, where these vulnerable children would come to stay during the schools terms and return to their home villages between terms. The idea was, not only to have the children’s school, but also a training area for adults to learn about hydroponics and aquaponics, skills that would help them provide for their own families and create a business model that would provide them with much needed income.

As with any kingdom work, it takes much prayer and also capital. Even though we had a comprehensive plan and government support, it became evident that through our prayers the timing was not in Gods will at that time. In our humanness we were disappointed, but could rejoice in the fact that God had answered our prayer of making it clear, either, yes or no. And that time the right doors were not opened in Rwanda.

During this upcoming trip we will still be partnering with Pastor Lewi who has started a primary school with over 360 orphans and vulnerable children at the refugee camp in Uganda. As before, our two prong approach will continue with Pastor Dov teaching and preaching the good news of Jesus Christ and looking for opportunities to serve with Pastor Lewi to help with long term sustainability projects to help these precious children. Ken Merrill

Please pray for this special trip according to what you have read in this letter. Also, you can still help with financial needs-please only as the Holy Spirit leads. My own (Dov Schwarz) personal expenses are about $3,000 which includes plane fare, hotel rooms, rental vehicle, food, and other expenses on the ground associated with pastors and widows meetings. Remember missions strategies: PRAYING, GIVING, GOING!

Praising King Jesus!

“We are rejoicing to be Poured Out For The Nations!”


Dear Poured Out Followers of Our Dear Messiah Jesus,

I am back from Nigeria and WOW! What a special time filled with so many opportunities! The first thing I will share in this letter are the results of the Gospel outreach. Then I will briefly mention some of the other important things that followed. Certainly, we have a new platform to preach and spread the Watch Therefore and Be Ready message in Africa.

Pastor Ray Jensen from Calvary Chapel Beth Shalom in Texas joined me on this trip as he has media skills that were very helpful for this effort. Ray witnessed and shot video of approximately one hundred and forty precious souls praying to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior-Hallelujah! We met these dear people in two places-Bayelsa State and Lagos, Nigeria. A dear Nigerian named Rex coordinated my trip and is such a special new friend and ministry partner.

In Bayelsa State, Reverend Innocent was our coordinator and he has a special heart for the lost who need Messiah Jesus. He is also a new ministry partner as I am confident that we will be seeing much fruit in the future together. Rev. Innocent has served the Lord in missions in Northern Nigeria which is quite literally one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a follower of Jesus Christ-what courage and faith!

Then in Lagos, a city of 21 million people, I spoke at two churches-Ray and I were received with warmth and hospitality. I spoke to church leaders at Trinity House along with their many services through the week. I preached and taught on the coming of Messiah Jesus in the rapture and of the need to “Watch Therefore and Be Ready” for His anytime return for His people. Pastor Ituah, who is a very influential pastor in Nigeria, was over this church and it was such a special place in Lagos! In one of the services many came forward and prayed to receive Jesus as Lord–Hallelujah!

I also met Pastor David who is also very influential and wanted to meet with me after hearing about my message to Nigeria. When we met with him and he heard the message he invited me to speak to hundreds of church leaders at a conference. Heaven came down and here is why: Like so many today they are hungry to understand Bible prophecy because it is flying off the pages of the Bible today! So many people thanked me for bringing this message to Nigeria. Many told me they used to hear Bible prophecy in Nigeria and now there is so much preaching on prosperity, but not Bible Prophecy and they were so happy to hear the prophetic word-Hallelujah!

In addition to this they have asked me to come back later this year and are promising that this was just an introduction. We are expecting to see many more souls saved and many more prepared to see our coming King! Lord willing, I will be going back to Nigeria in November.


Here is a list of the messages I spoke in Nigeria:
-THE SEASON OF THE DAY OF THE LORD
-THE KING IS COMING
-THE BIRTH PAINS OF ISRAEL AND THE NATIONS

-COVENANT AND PROPHECY
-THE FIG TREE HAS BLOSSOMED
-WHAT IS A GENERATION?
-THE WISE AND FOOLISH VIRGINS
-THE FAITHFUL SERVANT
-THE BLESSED OF PSALM 1
-UPCOMING BIBLICAL WARS
-WATCH THEREFORE AND BE READY!

Thanks to all who participated prayerfully and financially as there already is fruit in Nigeria and this is just the beginning! Now I am in preparation for our trip next month (May 18-28) to Uganda. This trip will be dedicated to preaching the Gospel, making disciples, and blessing orphans on a refugee camp. Prayerfully consider if the Lord would raise you up to help prayerfully and financially.
