Voice of Hope Update March 2014
Dear Scott and Faith Radio Listeners
Greetings in Jesus name,
Voice of Hope ministries VHM is a ministry raised by God to provide hope to people who are neglected and people who are oppressed by Satan, most of them are found in villages. In Tanzania there are many villages which have not been reached by the gospel of Jesus Christ. God has given us a calling and burden to preach the gospel in different villages which are oppressed by the power of darkness and plant churches in villages which has no churches.
Few weeks ago we visited in one of a difficult village in the country. In this village there is a lot of witchcraft. No church. They have given many sacrifices as a covenant that there will be not be any church and that no Christians will come and that people of the village will not change their religion or their tradition to anything apart from their belief.
There were four pastors from different denominations who went in different period of time to try to start church in this village.
Three of them were killed mysteriously through witchcraft. All of the three were be witched by the elders and the witch doctors of the village. One was bewitched and he became mad and run away from the village, it is six years now since he run away from village and no one knows where he is, even his wife, children and others does not know where he is till today. When we had this story we said we cannot let Satan do this while God has entrusted us with His supper power.
The Four Phases:
Survey – Spying the land
In the first phase, we sent our advanced part (The survey Team) to go in this village to spy it and getting all the necessary details we may need to know about this village so as we may be well prepared before we actually attack this village and overcome. Our survey team did a great job and came back with a lot of information of the village which gave us a wide road on how we can enter in this village and come out as winners for Christ.
Prayer and Intercession Phase
After we had gotten all the information we needed from the village, we sent a second team to the same village investigate further and to pray. We held prayer at all of the areas we had spotted them during the survey. At this point we were not preaching. It was just prayer time to deal with the power of principalities.
After prayer phase we sent a big evangelism team. At this time we felt that we were fully equipped and ready to preach and share the gospel and ready to fight all the opposition power from Satan. All people in the village were warned not to try to come close to any of us and whoever comes to associate with us in any how will face consequences.
The elders of the village and said we will not be able to lead any one to Jesus. They said if you will manage to get 5 people to come to your Jesus “we elders” will come leave our witchcraft and come to your Jesus. That was a good deal for us to keep in prayer to prove to them that the power we have is SUPERNATURAL POWER.
I and some of the VHM Band singing and praising the Lord in an area where the ground which we were told that that whoever would step on it to preach will die or become mad. We were dancing and showing people of that village that there is none like Jesus Christ. Nothing happened to us. We did not even fall down or get hurt in any way.
From the first day people of the village were coming and stand from the distance and watching what will happen to us because they have experienced the three pastors fall down mysteriously and pass away and the one who run mad it was in the same ground. They did not know that we had been there before for fasting and praying against the power of darkness operates in that village. We had full control and authority on hand to bind and loose. (18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” Matthew 18:18).
It is hard to explain it especially to people who have not lived in Africa. This was a fake rain. It was a rain and thunder made by witch doctors to strike our team and to kill the preacher so as they will accomplish their goal. This rain was only falling on the ground where we were preaching and the other part of the village was so dry. People in the village were expecting to hear the death of Christians on that evening because of heavy rain and thunders that had been sent by the witch people. We did not run away from the rain everything continued just like nothing happened. We kept singing and dancing as the rain continued, the preacher came on and continued to preach despite the rain. The fake rain lasted two hours and continued with the same speed. What surprised us all is that when the preacher invited people to come to Christ, there were no people on the ground. But many of them were in their houses listening and watching from a distance. When he called people to come to receive Christ, we saw a few people coming from their homes to the ground without worrying about the rain which was still raining at that time. On that particular day 7 people gave their lives to Christ.
The next days after the rain, many people gained confidence and came closer to the ground because they have seen the mighty hand of God. Many came and gave their lives to Christ. The name of Jesus has been glorified
Good is good, all the time. Four of the witch doctors after trying to bewitch our team and failed, some of them decided to come to Christ and they brought the witchcraft equipment they have been using to bewitch people. They confessed many evils that they had done and told us that when they were doing their witchcraft they even drank animal and human blood and performed many other acts of evil. We thank God that now they have come to the kingdom of God and we are now helping them in this journey they have started. We have had to hide them as we disciple them because their fellow witch doctors are now looking for them because they have betrayed their fellow witch doctors.
We finally gathered all of the witchcraft equipment we had received from the people who had performed witchcraft, we put them in the fire and called upon the fire of God to consume them. Many people came to witness this great event which had never happened in the history of this village. God is Able.
We would like to conduct a training session at the end of April.
The April training is practical training. It is focusing on helping key pastors in different villages on how to help a new converts to a level of maturity. This April training will help these key pastors to become trainers themselves so that they will take the same training to other pastors and church leaders in the villages they come from.
People who come to Christ from the witchcraft background, they need a special care on how to disciple them.
We expect over 200 Key pastors from 178 villages in Tanzania. We need to cover a full body and transport for the pastors who will attend this training.
The cost for one key pastor to attend this training is $60 for 4 days training. We are praying that people will show up and sponsor some of these pastors so as we accomplish this program for the advancement of the kingdom of God
- Please pray for more protection for myself, my family and the VHM Team as we are now the target of the enemy.
- Pray for upcoming follow up training for pastors and key leaders in villages.
- Pray for different church projects which have been stopped now due to finance
- Pray for provision for our house rent for 2014 – 2015 as we are supposed to pay end of May a full year in advance.
