“A Global, Bible Based Resource Equipping and Empowering Christians”
“First, I thank my God through Jesus the Anointed for all of you because family, and your faith is spreading across the world. For I call God as my witness – whom I worship in my spirit and serve in making known the gospel – He alone knows how often I mention you in my prayers. I find myself constantly praying for you and hoping it’s in God’s will for me to be with you soon. I desperately want to see you so that I can share some gift of the Spirit to strengthen you. Plus, I know that when we come together something beautiful will happen as we are encouraged by each other’s faith.” – “Romans 8:1-11” – The Voice
My Dear Friend and Co-Worker in Christ,
This is the 8th Newsletter I have sent and I hope that this will be of interest to you and will excite you in respect of the work we are carryingout together in various parts of God’s Harvest field.We have all had verydifferent journeys – There have been highs and lows – However, God has been at work and we now arrived at another junction in our pathways.
Let’s remember what it says in “Romans 4:17” – “As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.”
In this newsletter I want to let you know about some incredibley exciting things that lay ahead in 2019 & 2020.
However, before I do let me try to encourage you with the following short meditation.
Blessed is the man whose strength is in You whose heart is set on pilgrimage
We love to think we are in control, that we are masters of our destiny, that we are the Kings and Queens of our social and environmental
destinies. That’s just what the enemy in the garden wanted Adam and Eve to believe – and look where that got them and where that left us.
No! As Gods People we have given up the claim to “Personal Kingship” another now rules in our “hearts and Thinking.” In the Roman times theMaster would make a request and the Slave would say “From Your Mouth to My Hands” and as He Jesus is Kurios (κύριος) and we as His Servants are Doulos (douloß) then that should also be our attitude of heart.
I reflect back to a previous meditation – Gods Call Back – 1st Love 102 – https://worldwidechristianministries.org/gods-call-back-1st-love-101/ – inwhich I said: –
We all have plans, no problem there (even though) this world is not our home, and we are simply strangers and pilgrims, we are as Gods children the worlds displaced persons – “Hebrews 11:13” tells us “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” We know and its worth
reminding ourselves from time to time that we are only passing throughthis life. It’s only a stop along the way.
How do those who love the Lord appear? Those who truly love and follow Him do not live like others. They talk different. They think different. Their dreams are different. Their lifestyle is different. Their priorities are different. There, choice of where to live, what career to pursue, how to invest their time, who to marry, what kind of commitments to make, how to educate their children, and the view of suffering are all outside of the mainstream – really Foreigners and Non-Cultural – in all honesty their whole perspective is similar to that of a foreign culture.
Jesus said concerning His disciples in “John 17:16” – “They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” The children of God are no longer (should not be) at home in this world. They are looking for an eternal home with their Heavenly Father: “For those who say such things
declare plainly that they seek a homeland…But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared for them a city.” – “Hebrews 11:14 & 16”
What happened when we were brought into the Kingdom of God and were given new life? We were: – Given a new identity.Given a heavenly
family.Given a heavenly home.Given a position of an heir to a heavenly inheritance.Given heavenly citizenship to a heavenly country and found a new Capital City. The Child of God rather than feeling as though they are missing out on this life, have joy and peace in their heart. They are living the reality of “Psalm 84:5” – “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”
So, What’s Happening?
Friday 24th May – Monday 3rd June 2019
Bishop Hiruy Tsige
I was so delighted to have once again be in contact with my long term brother Hiruy. We were Bible School Students together at the IBTI
(International Bible Training Institute). I am equally overjoyed to have received his invitation to visit Ethiopia and the spend a week ministering
to Leaders and Fellow Belivers.
My hope is that there will be much fruit (which also remains) both in those finding Jesus as Saviour and the general Strengthening of Gods
I will be discussing with Hiruy the possibility of a Evangelistic Crusade for 2022 and a Christian Literature Campaign whilst I’m there – So, pleasebe in prayer for me and also my good Brother Hiruy.
South of France
Friday 28th June – Tuesday 9th July 2019
I am privilaged to have been requested to be the main speaker at a Family Camp being held in the South of France in the region of Sainte-Croix-de-Caderle (Gard). Its an honour but I’ve been asked to minister over 5days on the Scripture and Topic of – “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man againsthis father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” – ” “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man againsthis father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-lawagainst her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sakewill find it.” – “Matthew 10:34–39” -ESV
Burundi has been close to my heart now for a number of years and my visits there have gained me some very close and dear friends. I’ve seen God save thousands of people through the power of the Gospel, Bodies have been Healed and the Demon Possessed Set Free – All glory to God and such thankfulness on my part for His gracious anointing of the Holy Spirit – “We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves” – “2 Corinthians 4:7” I had a vision birthed in my spirit some time ago and it perculated there for some time ever growing in strength. It was for a “Mass Evangelistic Crusade” in Gitega the Political Capital of Burundi.
The majority of my ministry has been within that region ministering in Evangelism and supporting Church Leaders from the FECABU
organisation with Teaching.
In addition, I felt that a Literature Campaign of some sort, plus Radio and TV Evangelism was on Gods agenda for the region.
I had no idea how this would come about and for it to do so other Church Organisations would have to sense its rightness in their own hearts – afterall it is “Where brethren dwell together in unity that God commands His blessing” – “Psalm 133:1-3”
Wonderfully, this has now come to full strength, ready to be poured out and the crema of Gods Glory revealed to the senses.
In July 2020 a Mass Evangelistic Crusade is being held with the support of both the Assemblies of God and FECABU. The Assemblies of God (AOG)
have approximatly 700 Churches and FECABU about 150 and thus they are the greates influence in the Country of Burundi with thriving
Churches in the Gitaga Region which has over 2million people.
The Crusade will be undertaken by “On The Rock Crusades” which is part of WWCM but is directly the Evangelistic Crusades Arm of the
My sincere thanks goes to Rev Marc Ciza the Superintendant of the Gitega Region for FECABU and Archbishop Jérôme Ndayisaba of AOG plus
Rev Sylvester Kaburi without which this vision could not have become a
We had originally arranged for the Gitega Basketball Stadium to be used which would accomadate 10/11,000 People. However, the brethren in
Gitega feel that it is too smal and now it is planned that the Army Commando Stadium which has a capacity of 40/50000.
The Crusade is being held over a Thursday – Saturday. In addition, Humuriza TV run by my friend Perry Saxe Gateka a Christian Radio/TV
Station based in Gitega have very kindly offered to provide “Live Coverage” of the Crusade. He does great work when I was there last he did a TV Broadcast “off the cuff for me” which can be seen at – https://youtu.be/bTqyfS4tbsU. The Live Coverage would mean that if “everyone in the Region had a Radio and it was Turned On and Tuned in to the Crusade we could be reaching up to 2million people over those few days _ Crazy Grace at Work Ah!
During the days before Monday thru Wednesday a Childrens Crusade is being undertaken. This is a 1st for Gitega and also for my ministry
outreach. Three great Women of God (Rosemary, Prudence and Maureen) are involved in this and our hope/prayer is that many Children will be –
Saved, Filled with the Holy Spirit and commence their journey and pilgrimage with Jesus as a result.
At the same time as all the above is taking place “Street Evangelism” is going to take place with the Team Members who are not involved in other activities out and about with the Gospel, Speaking, Praying and with Gods help seeing folk won for Christ on the Streetys of Gitega.
A Team hopefully of 10 are coming with me – there are 6 already getting prepared and sensing the excitment rising these being – “Rosemary,
Prudence, Maureen, Barry, Obi and Peter” from Tunbridge Wells Christian Fellowship and Tunbridge Wells Baptist Church. We are
anticipating another 4 from Belgium after the Familiy Camp in the Southof France.
Their Team Uniforms look like this: –
Other trips are being planned and so if you would like to join this one or another then please go to the Web Site and complete the on-line application form at – www.worldwidechristianministries.org/missions/ or contact me direct.

Rosemary & Prudence that they will know of Gods Leading – They have the most difficult task.
That the enemy will be kept at bay and that his kingdom will be decimated.
That the 5000 Decision Cards will all be utilised and those completing them will become disciples of Christ.
That the Team as a whole will be unified and will experience Gods richest blessing and anointing.
That me in my “Old Age” will remain (Fit & Well) for the 2020 / 2021/2 Mission Activities.
That God will give His blessing as I am in Ethiopia whilst you are prayingand the week following.
I’m personally very excited about what will be happening and especiallyseeing God confirming His Word with Signs Following.
Formation of World-Wide Christian Ministries as a Charity
It is planned that by the middle / end of 2019 that World Wide Christian Ministries will be established as a Registered Charity. Plans are in place and Trustees have been found and other administrative tasks are in progress. Many are faithful in giving to the Mission activities and this will enable a Government Tax Supplement plus provide for any who wish it an enhanced transparency in respect to funding.
Appointment of a Support Executive in the UK
I was approached before Christmas by a Brother Mr Richard Lawrence who has a heart for Mission and especially the work of WWCM
(Worldwide Christian Ministries) who has requested that he might be theSupport Liaison for me and the Mission Activities and we are so glad to
have him onboard and part of the team.

I make a point of tithing from your financial support to other Mission Activities. Your faithfulness to His call upon your finances to the work He has called me too has made possible the following: –
Youth Evangelist Trained – A young Lady in Belgium has been enabled to engage in and complete a College Course in Evangelism.
Pioneer Pastor – The support for 1yr of a Pastor (Married with Children) to serve the Lord with less anxiety.
The Building of a New Church Building housing up to 700people in Burundi.
All these activities have resulted in God’s Kingdom being extended and will continue to do so. In glory, I believe Jesus will pull back the curtain of time and reveal how much was achieved through your faithfulness in both praying and giving.
I recognise that there are constant demands on our finances and we have to be circumspect in the manner we invest that which God has so faithfully given to us.
I need at this point to confess something to you which I had to repent off.I was convicted by the Holy Spirit some months ago about my attitude and
approach to requesting support for the WWCM Mission Activities. I felt that to ask people for support was tantramount to going “Cap In Hand” asit were to friends and fellow christians. It was a prideful thing however and the Lord pulled me up over it. He said and I paraphrase – “Will I not support you and continue to do so as you faithfully commit yourself to my call upon your life?” I of course had to reply “Yes of course Lord”. He then went on to say “Why then will you deny my people the opportunity of sharing in the investment of the monies I have given to them for the work I am doing through you? I had to answer with a string in my throat”Because I feel like I’m begging Lord”. To that He said to me “It is not for you to choose, it’s not begging to make known the needs for my kingdom to my people. I will as they hear place my finger of generosity upon their hearts and there will be fruitfulness for my Kingdom and in the midst of their generosity.”
What did this mean for me? Well! I have to tell you that its been a hard journey going 180degrees in my thinking and spirit. However, I’m willing to now be bold.
The needs that are before the mission activities of Worldwide Christian Ministries are as follows. As you consider them please keep in mind that a “Small Investment” made by us can result in a significantly higher “Return on that Investment” so much so that it may amaze us.

Thank You for being a worker together with me – I may be the boots in the field but it is our combined mission activity. Any success I have is yours, any fruit I see is yours, any miracles manifested are yours and any demons cast out are only due to your support.One thing I am very conscious of is that I remain faithful to the calling He has given me.
Essentially, I’m an Evangelist but God has seen fit to merge that Ministry into several other aspects. However Preaching the Gospel is my
foundational role.The Scripture says: – “Preach the Word; be prepared inseason and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction” – “1 Timothy 4:2”
So please be in prayer for me that the Gospel will be preached with penetrating truth and accompanied by signs and wonders following.
I want to take the opportunity to thank those who have supported me financially. Your participation has made it possible to reach thousands
with the Gospel and see thousands making a commitment to Jesus plus testimonies of Healing, Deliverance and Liberty.The time of “seed
planting” has not closed and wonderfully the time of “harvesting” will not close until Jesus returns.
God Bless You and Thank You for your Fellowship, Friendship, Faithfulness and Funding and as you Serve Jesuswith me.
