Thursday nights each week HMI ministers travel to one of the Churches that HMI has planted on dairy farms. The road is bad, the truck we travel in is not comfortable but to minister the gospel to the men working and living on these farms and to see them saved and their lives transformed by Holy Spirit through the preaching of the Word makes the weekly trip a blessing to all. God loves these men and confirms His word with signs and wonders. How blessed we are to be a part of it. Become a partner in this work
God is good all the time!!! Each Wednesday we are made newly aware of His goodness as we travel into the mountainous jungle near the Colombian border to minister to the Japreria Indian Village. This village of Yupka Indians has been totally transformed by their faithfulness to the Living God and becoming doers of it…. They are a not so gentle reminder that when God is all you have He is more than enough.
Sunday was a great day in Gods Kingdom in Venezuela. I was honored to get to preach in a church in Machicas, VZ God’s Holy Spirit was strong and 2 were healed, many baptised in the Holy Spirit and a daby girl dedicated to the Lord.
In the evening I was honored to preach in LaVilla in Iglesia de la cosecha and although …my message was not centered on salvation Holy Spirit convicted one young man and he was gloriously birthed into the Kingdom. It was truly a God day!
HMI Bible School in Pailitas, Colombia held graduation ceremony on August 28th. As always it was a very festive ocasion. Marcia and I commissioned the graduates and sent them out to work with their churches in the harvest.
Oh the faithfulness of God! 4 years ago a government agency tore down our Japreria Church building and promised to build it back. We have been meeting wherever we could for all this time listening to promises to rebuild the church. HMI made the decision to build it ourselves 2 years ago and the land to build on changed each time we started to build. BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL. NEVER GIVE UP! THE CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN! (see the pics)
HMI has the money to do the dirt work and to buy the materials for the foundation and columns and to pay for the labor to complete that part.
Please prayerfully consider partnering with us financially to complete the Japreria Church Building. These are exciting times. Be a part of it!
HMI held a crusade for children on April 30. The children in Haydees’ children’s cell did several skits/drama, we sang, ministered the Gospel, and prayed the sinners’ prayer with 22 children. We had 96 children in attendance and refreshments were served. It was great fun as always.
HMI JAIL MINISTRY
HMI has begun ministering to the inmates in the jail in La Villa. We are visiting the jail each Thursday and sharing the Good News of the Gospel. The number of prisoners changes from week to week. At this time there are 20 men and 6 women prisoners. The conditions in the jail are bad and the people are broken and open to the Word of God. We are teaching them from the book “God is not mad at you” by Billy Joe Daugherty.
Lives are being changed!
THEY DON’T ALLOW PICTURES IN THE JAIL
NURSING HOME MINISTRY
To God be the glory. The HMI nursing home ministry continues to be a great blessing to the senior citizens of La Villa. God, faithful to confirm His Word, manifests Himself through the answers to prayers of the HMI staff as well as the people at the nursing home. People are testifying weekly of healing in their bodies. We are teaching from the book “Death is Not The End” by Billy Joe Daugherty. There is a hunger for knowledge of the Word of God and it is the privilege of the HMI ministers to feed the hungry and to see our supernatural God confirm His word through signs and miracles. One of the ladies was so sick she could not get out of bed and was sleeping. Eva and I prayed silently for her and passed by her bed 10 minutes later and she was sitting up on her bed so we prayed again for her and within a few minutes she was in the ministry meeting praising God for her healing. (see her pics)
IGLESIA DE LA COSECHA
The church continues to grow in both numbers and spiritual knowledge. The church has come into unity and Holy Spirit is revealing Himself to each of us with direction for His place for us in the body of Christ. People are being saved, healed and delivered by the power of God.
Plans are in place to start 2 new Cell Groups. The Kingdom is on the move!
Marcia and I had Praise & Prayer meeting at our home for the church and it was a great time of fellowship, testimonies and praises to our God. We had communion, a time of prayer and some good food.
Well glory to God on our second weekly visit to the new nursing home in VZ 11 more senior children of God received Jesus as their savior! Yasmira brought the Word of God in a very simple yet powerfully annointed mesage on “The 3 Parts of Man” (spirit, soul & body) followed by an invitation ……for salvation. Marcia , Yasmira & I prayed for the people individually for healing. The people were so excited by the testimonies of healing and other answered prayer from the previous week’s ministry. God’s faithfulness reigns supreme!
