And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen (Matthew 28:18-20). And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover (Mark 16:15-18). And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen (Mark 16:20).
I’m leaving for Ethiopia today at 1:20 pm. This is my 10th trip to Ethiopia. We’ll be conducting a pastor’s conference in southern Ethiopia and an evangelistic crusade there as well. The people are always eager to hear the Word of God preached and have such a simple faith. Miracles of healing just flow as you pray for the sick. These folk don’t let their head get in the way of heart belief!
I’ll arrive in Ethiopia around 4:30 am Eastern Time here in the States. That’s a long time to be without prone sleep! We arrive in Addis around noon on Wednesday. After an afternoon of rest and a good night’s sleep we will leave for southern Ethiopia on Thursday morning. It’s a 7 to 8 hour trip. Friday we will conduct the pastor’s conference and on Saturday and Sunday we will conduct an evangelistic crusade.
On Monday, we will travel to minister in our churches in Western Ethiopia on Monday and Tuesday, and on Wednesday the 30th, we will travel back to Addis for our trip home.
Please believe with me for an outpouring of the Spirit on these precious pastors and for many to be born again, spirit-filled, and healed during the evangelistic crusades.
My pastor’s heart already misses everyone! I’ll blog as much as possible during the trip. I have wi-fi access at airports and in Addis, but very little access when we head south. Just keep checking in and I’ll post as often as possible and keep you updated!
Thanks for praying!
