A WORD FROM GOD
A few weeks ago I was in a meeting and the minister had never seen me before He had never seen me before. He spoke out and said, “You are going to need strength for the upcoming things God has for you. He said by Christmas you are going to be extremely busy for the kingdom.” My thought was how can that be? I am already busy for the kingdom of God.
A GLORIOUS OPPORTUNITY AROSE
Well, something happened this last Sunday evening. I had been telling people I was going to go to Botswana, Africa this coming year. I met Pastor Matthew Buckley from Francistown, Botswana Africa in Branson, MO at the Autumn Prayer Assembly. When we all went out to dinner on Sunday after the meeting he asked me to be their commencement speaker for their Bible School. This will include speaking in their church, a seminar, visiting two jungle churches, ministering to the youth and who knows what all. I am so excited. When I go to the nations, my heart really quickens. It really excites me.
I asked when it was going to be, He answered me the end of the month. I had to stop and breathe. I said, “This month?” "Yes, this month." So here I am preparing to go. I leave Thanksgiving week and return the middle of December.
A MISSIONARY JOURNEY
This is a missionary journey. They will take care of me while I am there but I must get a round trip ticket. The trip will be around $1500 round trip. There will be many additional costs involved and I believe God wants me to go out with joy and divine supply. " Nothing lacking and nothing missing is my motto." I want to take an offering to them to bless their ministry as they are doing a great work. I believe God for abundance. I am standing on the scripture from 1 Corinthians 9:7. Who goeth to war any time at his own charges? Verse 11 If we have sown unto our spiritual things is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
This last April they were featured in the Word of Faith Magazine that Kenneth Hagin Ministries publishes. Below are excerpts of that publication.
The Vision Grows
The Buckleys’ vision continues to expand. The government gave them 11 acres, and they are using it to build larger facilities for the church, academy, and training center. They currently are
in the first phase of a building project. Matthew and Kristin are looking forward to reaching more people with God’s love and compassion. For them, it is a privilege to serve the Lord in Botswana.
“I love what we do,” says Matthew. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything
Those who stay at home get rewarded the same as those who go. 1 Samuel 30:24 For as the share of him which goes into battle, so shall his share be who stays by the baggage. They shall share alike. I am claiming souls and spiritual growth and you are part of the reward as you participate. I am claiming the scripture that no soldier goes to battle at his own expense. I repeat 1 Corinthians 9:7 amp. What soldier at any time serves at his own expense?
