Scenario  of  Events  in  These  Last  Days,  part  5

          Last time we discovered in the 14th Event that after our Great High Priest Jesus Christ ceases His ministration, the saints miraculously hear the tinkling of the bells on the bottom of His priestly garments as He leaves the Most Holy Place of the Heavenly Sanctuary. The tinkling of the bells signals to the 144,000 that Christ is no longer interceding for guilty man, and it is useless to continue witnessing as Satan now has entire control of the unrepentant.  The 144,000 then flee for their lives, and a cloud of darkness miraculously covers the earth, signaling that the time of Jacob’s trouble has begun.
     Then in the 15th Event we learned that after Christ moves out of the Most Holy Place that He goes to the door of the first apartment.  He then confesses all the forgiven sins of His people upon the head of the Scapegoat or Satan.  Then a flaming cloud comes to where Jesus is, Christ takes off His priestly garments and clothes Himself in His kingly robes of vengeance, takes His place on the cloud and leaves the Sanctuary, then He is surrounded by the angelic host and they all leave heaven.
     After this in the 16th Event we saw that after Jesus puts on the kingly garments of vengeance then the 7 last plagues begin to fall upon the wicked, and while the plagues are falling the Fit Man is leading the Scape Goat or Satan out into the land of forgetfulness.

     We then amazingly discovered that this Fit Man symbolizes the living saints of the 144,000!  And then we learned why?  It is because those who make up the 144,000 became fully sinless and perfect in character and life while they still lived in the midst of the greatest wickedness this world has ever known, and then they remained sinless all the way until Christ no longer mediated between God and mankind and probation closed for the world.
     In this sinless state the 144,000 are alone qualified to be the bride and wife of Jesus Christ, to live during the time of the plagues without a Mediator, and are indeed a Fit Man to take the Scape Goat or Lucifer out into a land not inhabited, and then let him go in that desolate place.  And even though Lucifer makes a great effort at every step to try and escape their hand, yet the 144,000 hold fast and endure every battle in order to victoriously pass through this great time of Jacob’s trouble without a Mediator while maintaining their sinlessness by steadfastly refusing to commit any sin.  And after Christ comes and destroys all the wicked still living with His brightness and glory, then the Devil himself will definitely wander all alone in a completely desolate and uninhabitable earth for 1000 years where afterwards he will eventually die (Revelation 20:2-3, 10).

     But we also learned that if the 144,000 did not remain sinless during this time of Jacob’s trouble, but chose instead to give up the intense wrestling and warfare with Satan by giving in to his temptations, then they would have failed in their vitally important mission to fully stand before God without a Mediator and to maintain their fidelity to their Spouse Jesus Christ!  If this occurs then Satan would have been allowed to return back to his previous position of being the evil ruler over all mankind.  This would signify that mankind has now twice chosen to accept Lucifer over Jesus without any justified excuse. Thus the atonement for all sins would be undone, God’s faithful followers would no longer be forgiven, and the whole plan of salvation would be ruined!  So without the 144,000 remaining the sinless bride of Christ and living before God the Father without a Mediator during all of this time of Jacob’s trouble, then there would be no resurrection of the righteous dead at Christ’s second coming and all would be lost!
     So the 144,000 living saints have a tremendous responsibility of maintaining their sinless married state all during this time of Jacob’s Trouble, and to live through all the wrestling and fighting at every step against Satan’s fierce temptations until Christ comes to deliver them.  This would prove to the entire universe that human beings can faithfully and perfectly keep God’s commandments under any circumstances.  This would forever verify that God’s plan of salvation was perfect and without any fault, that He was fully justified in giving His law as well as forgiving those who had broken it, and was perfectly righteous in allowing all those who have died in faith in Jesus Christ to be resurrected to finally receive their reward of eternal life!
     “And these all [the faithful of all the ages who have died], having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise [of the reward of eternal life]: God having provided some better thing for us [those now living], that they [righteous dead] without us [living saints] should not be made perfect [raised to immortal life].” Hebrews 11:39-40.  

     This also amazingly revealed that the Plan of Salvation not only hinged on Jesus Christ faithfully carrying out His mission work, but it also hinges on the Fit Man or the 144,000 faithfully carrying out their mission work!

     So that is what we learned last time.  But what happens after the 16th Event occurs where the 4 angels let loose the winds of strife and the 7 last plagues begin to fall?  This is what we will discover today.

Event #17 – The plagues fall in succession, but the first 6 plagues are not universal; and angels protect 144,000 from death.

     “And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened [after Christ has come out of the Most Holy Place]: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.  And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.  And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.  
     “And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.” Revelation 15:5-8, 16:1.

     “...vial after vial [are to be] poured out one after another upon the inhabitants of the earth.” Selected Messages, book 3, p 426

     “The world is soon to be left by the angel of mercy and the seven last plagues are to be poured out....The bolts of God's wrath are soon to fall, and when He shall begin to punish the transgressors there will be no period of respite until the end.” Testimonies to Ministers, p 182.

     “When Christ ceases His intercession in the sanctuary, the unmingled wrath threatened against those who worship the beast and his image and receive his mark (Revelation 14:9, 10), will be poured out. The plagues upon Egypt when God was about to deliver Israel were similar in character to those more terrible and extensive judgments which are to fall upon the world just before the final deliverance of God's people. Says the revelator, in describing those terrific scourges: "There fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image." The sea "became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea." And "the rivers and fountains of waters...became blood." Terrible as these inflictions are, God's justice stands fully vindicated. The angel of God declares: "Thou art righteous, O Lord,...because Thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and Thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy." Revelation 16:2-6. By condemning the people of God to death, they have as truly incurred the guilt of their blood as if it had been shed by their hands. In like manner Christ declared the Jews of His time guilty of all the blood of holy men which had been shed since the days of Abel; for they possessed the same spirit and were seeking to do the same work with these murderers of the prophets.
     “In the plague that follows, power is given to the sun "to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat." Verses 8, 9. The prophets thus describe the condition of the earth at this fearful time: "The land mourneth;...because the harvest of the field is perished....All the trees of the field are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men." "The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate....How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture....The rivers of water are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness." "The songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord God: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence." Joel 1:10-12, 17-20; Amos 8:3.
     “These plagues are not universal, or the inhabitants of the earth would be wholly cut off. Yet they will be the most awful scourges that have ever been known to mortals. All the judgments upon men, prior to the close of probation, have been mingled with mercy. The pleading blood of Christ has shielded the sinner from receiving the full measure of his guilt; but in the final judgment, wrath is poured out unmixed with mercy....
     “The people of God will not be free from suffering; but while persecuted and distressed, while they endure privation and suffer for want of food they will not be left to perish. That God who cared for Elijah will not pass by one of His self-sacrificing children. He who numbers the hairs of their head will care for them, and in time of famine they shall be satisfied. While the wicked are dying from hunger and pestilence, angels will shield the righteous and supply their wants. To him that "walketh righteously" is the promise: "Bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure." "When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them." Isaiah 33:15, 16; 41:17....
     “Yet to human sight it will appear that the people of God must soon seal their testimony with their blood as did the martyrs before them. They themselves begin to fear that the Lord has left them to fall by the hand of their enemies. It is a time of fearful agony. Day and night they cry unto God for deliverance. The wicked exult, and the jeering cry is heard: "Where now is your faith? Why does not God deliver you out of our hands if you are indeed His people?" But the waiting ones remember Jesus dying upon Calvary's cross and the chief priests and rulers shouting in mockery: "He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him." Matthew 27:42. Like Jacob, all are wrestling with God. Their countenances express their internal struggle. Paleness sits upon every face. Yet they cease not their earnest intercession.
     “Could men see with heavenly vision, they would behold companies of angels that excel in strength stationed about those who have kept the word of Christ's patience. With sympathizing tenderness, angels have witnessed their distress and have heard their prayers. They are waiting the word of their Commander to snatch them from their peril. But they must wait yet a little longer. The people of God must drink of the cup and be baptized with the baptism. The very delay, so painful to them, is the best answer to their petitions. As they endeavor to wait trustingly for the Lord to work they are led to exercise faith, hope, and patience, which have been too little exercised during their religious experience....
     “The heavenly sentinels, faithful to their trust, continue their watch. Though a general decree has fixed the time when commandment keepers may be put to death, their enemies will in some cases anticipate the decree, and before the time specified, will endeavor to take their lives. But none can pass the mighty guardians stationed about every faithful soul. Some are assailed in their flight from the cities and villages; but the swords raised against them break and fall powerless as a straw. Others are defended by angels in the form of men of war....
     “As the wrestling ones urge their petitions before God, the veil separating them from the unseen seems almost withdrawn. The heavens glow with the dawning of eternal day, and like the melody of angel songs the words fall upon the ear: "Stand fast to your allegiance. Help is coming." Christ, the almighty Victor, holds out to His weary soldiers a crown of immortal glory; and His voice comes from the gates ajar: "Lo, I am with you. Be not afraid. I am acquainted with all your sorrows; I have borne your griefs. You are not warring against untried enemies. I have fought the battle in your behalf, and in My name you are more than conquerors."
     “The precious Saviour will send help just when we need it. The way to heaven is consecrated by His footprints. Every thorn that wounds our feet has wounded His. Every cross that we are called to bear He has borne before us. The Lord permits conflicts, to prepare the soul for peace. The time of trouble is a fearful ordeal for God's people; but it is the time for every true believer to look up, and by faith he may see the bow of promise encircling him....
     “The eye of God, looking down the ages, was fixed upon the crisis which His people are to meet, when earthly powers shall be arrayed against them. Like the captive exile, they will be in fear of death by starvation or by violence. But the Holy One who divided the Red Sea before Israel, will manifest His mighty power and turn their captivity. "They shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him." Malachi 3:17. If the blood of Christ's faithful witnesses were shed at this time, it would not, like the blood of the martyrs, be as seed sown to yield a harvest for God. Their fidelity would not be a testimony to convince others of the truth; for the obdurate heart has beaten back the waves of mercy until they return no more. If the righteous were now left to fall a prey to their enemies, it would be a triumph for the prince of darkness....Glorious will be the deliverance of those who have patiently waited for His coming and whose names are written in the book of life.” Great Controversy, p 627-634.

     “In the day of fierce trial He [Christ] will say, “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.” What are the chambers in which they are to hide? They are the protection of Christ and holy angels. The people of God are not at this time all in one place. They are in different companies, and in all parts of the world.” Historical Sketches, p 158.

     “In the time of trouble just before the coming of Christ, the righteous will be preserved through the ministration of heavenly angels”. Patriarch and Prophets, p 256.

     “I saw the saints leaving the cities and villages, and associating together in companies, and living in the most solitary places. Angels provided them food and water, while the wicked were suffering from hunger and thirst.” Early Writings, p 282.

     “During the night a very impressive scene passed before me. There seemed to be great confusion and the conflict of armies. A messenger from the Lord stood before me, and said, “Call your household. I will lead you; follow me.” He led me down a dark passage, through a forest, then through the clefts of mountains, and said, “Here you are safe.” There were others who had been led to this retreat. The heavenly messenger said, “The time of trouble has come as a thief in the night, as the Lord warned you it would come.” Our Father Cares, p 333-334.

     “The heathen may rage and imagine vain things, but the Lord is unchangeable. He has made the strength of the everlasting hills to be a safe retreat for His people. He has prepared the mountains and the caves for His oppressed and persecuted children. We may sing, "God is our refuge and strength in time of trial." He who made the towering mountains, the everlasting hills--to Him we may look.” This Day With God, p 241.  

     So in this event we have learned that each of these plagues fall in succession upon the wicked and devastate different parts of the earth, but the first 6 plagues are not universal upon all.  The 144,000 living saints have fled for their lives into the uninhabited wilderness.  Some are alone; some are captured and in jail, while others have gathered together in little companies, and some have even been led by angels into safe mountain retreats.  But all the 144,000 cry earnestly to God day and night for deliverance while their faith and trust in God is steadily increased.  Yet they are not left to struggle all alone and without help, because Christ Himself encourages them with His own lovely voice to not be afraid, but to continue holding steadfast because He is with them to help them, and in His name they will become more than conquerors!
     But whether alone, or in company with others; whether surrounded by their enemies, or in jail awaiting their execution, angels that excel in strength are protecting them and not a single one of the 144,000 will be killed, but they all will remain alive patiently waiting for their God to deliver them.

     Now what occurs after these 6th plagues have fallen and this 17 Event comes to an end?  This is what we will discover in our next Newsletter, and it is quite amazing what happens next!



     After many years of research, we have finally released much of our amazing discovery regarding ancient Babylon.  You can find this research on our website under Babylon (actual link: http://www.lightministries.com/id955.htm).  You will not believe how much of Babylon is still alive in the world today in culture, beliefs, and practices!  May God help all of His people to be wide awake and to escape from Babylon wherever it is found!

     "Let There Be Light" Ministries is committed to the spreading of the full present truth gospel message worldwide, and has been doing so since 1986.  This Ministry has operating expenses covering the areas of: printing, publishing, and writing of present truth books, booklets, tracts, and other literature; DVD, video and audio taping, production, and distribution; supporting several ministers and workers in foreign Countries; mail order – both domestic and foreign; traveling to hold meetings – both locally, nationally, and internationally; answering correspondence and questions regarding the message of truth; offering National and International Bible studies; sending free present truth literature to contacts in many poor Countries; etc.
     Your gracious prayers and support is greatly appreciated and needed.  Without the Lord's guidance, blessings, and your support, this Ministry could not continue to reach out worldwide with the precious message of Revelation 14:6-12 & 18:1-5.

     May our God and Saviour continue to lead and guide all those who have helped us reach souls who sit in darkness with the precious light of gospel truth.  May our supporters remember that they share in each and every soul who has been reached by this Ministry and converted to the Lord and His present truth!


     We are currently supporting several workers in many different Countries on a monthly basis.  We check into the economy of each area and supply a base support which is adequate depending on their situation, but not extravagant.  This base support is to ensure that the monthly needs of each worker and family is met for that month so that the worker may devote full time to the ministry work.  In addition to this, we are sending extra materials for evangelism, and money for printing, publishing, holding meetings, traveling, and other necessary areas in spreading the Present Truth in their Country.  And as the work extends, especially will the expenses for evangelism expand.  Whatever you can send to help in this necessary and vital area is greatly appreciated.
     The work of spreading God's present truth is not to be limited, but must extend world-wide to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people before our Saviour can come (Matthew 24:14).  What better way of spreading the Present Truth Gospel than by having workers who speak the native language, who reside in that particular Country, who can live and preach the truth, visit the interests in their homes, and spread the printed truth translated into their native language!
     "Our publications should be printed in other languages, that foreign nations may be reached.  Much can be done through the medium of the press, but still more can be accomplished if the influence of the living preacher goes with our publications....The Lord has moved upon men of other tongues and has brought them under the influence of the truth, that they might be qualified to labor in His cause." Testimonies, vol 3, p 204-205.

     Please financially help us to continue supporting our current ministers and workers on a consistent basis, so that the spreading of the truth will not be interrupted but can quickly lighten this dark world with the glory of God.

     "Every opportunity should be improved to extend the truth to other nations.  This will be attended with considerable expense, but expense should in no case hinder the performance of this work.  Means are of value only as they are used to advance the interest of the kingdom of God.  The Lord has lent men means for this very purpose, to use in sending the truth to their fellow men."  Testimonies, vol 3, p 208.

Dear Elder Robert,
     Psalm 75:1.
     The last time I e-mailed you about my daughter ____ was in August and at that time we were in the process of her recovery. She started to walk again and do the things she was used to before she got sick. But in the end of August, her temperature went up. We went back to the hospital to have her check. When the test results were out, they were not able to determine the cause and just had an appointment with a CT scan the next day and sent us home.
     The next day, the CT scan result was that ____ had pseudomeningocele right under the incision which was located just above the back of her neck (bulge) and she acquired mild communicating hydrocephalus. Through lumbar puncture, they were able to determine the cause of her fever and it was a bacterial meningitis. We stayed again in the hospital for 2 weeks for her IV antibiotics and 1 more week at home but needed to go back to the hospital twice, in the morning and evening for the continuation of her IV antibiotics.
     22th of September, ____ had her second operation, the VP shunt. We stayed for about 5 days in the hospital and was discharged.
     From the time she had her VP shunt, we never had any problems with ____, she is living like a normal child. She is really amazing, there's no trace in her ways and actions that she had undergone those operations.
     On the day when ____ was about to discharge, we were not able to find money to pay for the hospital. All the people we asked to lend us money, all said no. And that hospital is a cash basis hospital and ____ didn't have an insurance. The neurosurgeon didn't let us pay for his service and the hospital allowed us to discharge with the promise to pay our bill into two payments : 31st September and 30th of October.  (To God’s glory) We are paid (up with no bill amount remaining).
     This time, I am printing your tracts for us to share the word of God. We are hoping we could find somebody who could translate the tracts into Thai language. I will email you soon again. Thank you so much Elder Robert for your prayers.  (Editor’s Note: God is so good and praise His holy and merciful name for answering prayers!)
S.G., Thailand.

God bless you.
     I am blessed with this lesson.  Keep sending other prophetic articles.

Dear Pastor
     Greetings and prayers for you and your family, your ministry.  I just want to say thanks. My family and I would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest appreciation and thanks for the kindness and the sacrifices for running your online messages that’s encouraging many. I want to say God is using your messages to reach out to the world and I am blessed. I will continue sharing your messages as long as I am able to make copies. The Bible says, “But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction.” 1 Thessalonians 5:12.
     I am a servant of God by His grace. I am 35 years of aged and 18 years serving God now.  We have planted three Churches but still in tent, school hall, and we have made shed for worshiping God, and over 20 home sites where people just gathered within the week and worship the Lord. We have many people in our Churches and love holding Crusades, street outreach, (visiting) Hospitals, house to house and schools.
     Recently I went for a Crusade mission and about 124 gave their lives; but when was still there I received a phone called (telling) my daughter of two years old is very sick. I came back after two days, and she was taken to Clinic and she was getting treatment, but no change. Five days later, she could not eat food, not taking anything.
     Then we took her to a bigger hospital where she was checked or tested and found out that she was on wrong medication which turned poisoned and again she was bitten by snake, her left leg swollen. Her breath and eyes had already changed just at the point of death, everyone saying she will die, my wife was already crying, but God is good, I had nothing to say, but in my heart I was like God remember how I have been serving you. I do not know what happened, but I was led to your website. I had my phone in my hand and (began) reading your messages (out loud), and (I am) declaring (to you that) I saw her coming back to life. Doctor took her straight to oxygen. Today she is very fine and eating, smiling and now playing. God is good, and thank you Pastor for the sacrifice to run your messages and for maintaining your website....(editor’s Note: it was your faith in God that  allowed Him to heal her!)
     I know my child was healed by God and they first refused to work on her, but after prayers, when she gained strength, reading your messages with aloud voice I saw her coming back and after they took her to oxygen. But I thank God.  Also for the Hospital (bill): prays (that someone come in and buy my motorcycle so that I clear (up the bill), or let God make a way...I am (have) been using it for outreach, but now am selling it to pay the bills.....
Yours in service, B.E., Africa.

     Good Evening Elder Rob: I received the 27 packets of the tract as well as the Tithe booklet today.  Will share the brochures for those who will read these Jewels!!!
     Thanks to you and Sis Michele. God's abundant blessings!!!



(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Brother Bob,
     Thank you for the information early enough. Indeed economies are hard hit everywhere...However, it may also sometimes come to help exercise patience.  In fact, I opened the web to write a report only to stumble on your mail, and I appreciate.
     In August I attended two camp meetings on invitation from brethren of another group out here. We shared on Church History and they appreciated. I thought it could have been well if we had a bit of material to leave with them. Booklets like Protestant History would have served them well. However I'm in the process of preparing a brief bronchure on the same if that can help.
     This September, we were hard hit with the demise of an elder brother in the faith, a man who had stood for the truth from the sixties. He had actually been censured from the church around 1966. He pioneered the Sabbath reformation in Western Kenya, established and registered Remnant Church in Africa in 1976; brought Sabbath rest in 1984 and, when we visited his area in 2008 September, and shared with him our message he accepted to team up with us. He had early on in 2006 separated from Sabbath Rest having realized problems therein. In September 2009 he accepted to be rebaptized with us during a camp meeting at ____. Before his death, he had written a will in which he said no animal food should be served during his burial ceremony in his home, and no traditional custom should be performed for him.
     Because of this the church took his whole program including sinking the grave and laying him to rest...Praise God. We laid him to rest on 24th.
     We had a very inspiring camp in ____ from 1st through 10th of December. At the end of it a total of 15 souls committed themselves to Lord through baptism. Glory be to the Lord. Brethren from the Caribbean visited with us at the camp.
     We proceeded to ____ for an end year camp from 17th through 24th December. Brother ____ from Uganda joined and ministered with us. In the afternoons we had camp outreach to a nearby market to share with them God's blessings. At the end a total of nine souls committed themselves to the Lord in baptism. Glory be to the Lord.
     As the year comes to an end I take this time to thank the Lord who has brought us this far. Ebenezer! It was a year of many uncertainties especially with our prolonged (national) electioneering period, but He that seeth the end from the beginning has brought us to port safely. This gives more courage even as approach the new year.
     Though we have long seen it normal for years to come and go, things might never be the same for ever. One time too soon Jesus is coming and history will take another course. We are admonished "Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their Lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants." Lk. 12:35-38.
     Truly, as we see "Catholic and Protestant leaders have stressed their mutual bonds 500 years after the start of the Reformation," we believe the "wounds healed" (the Guardian), (and thus) the time is not far distant. Let our lamps be burning and our loins girt.
     May God abundantly bless you, family and brethren as the year ends and another (is now) behind us.
Num. 6:24-6, B.I., Kenya.

     Pastor ____ assists us with a vehicle in transporting of literatures to the respective areas for distribution. Street and market preaching continued through the week and number of literacy (literature), booklets and Great Controversies were distributed.
     These youths are very active in every meetings and activities and successfully fulfilling their 2017 yearly planner. In their retreat programs they do medical work, community service, street/ market preaching, singing, distributing literatures, visiting Hospitals/ backsliders, ect….
     Most of the youths were highly improving in their sermonizing & leadership role. I believe and sure that 2018 will be their busiest year in evangelism.
     In every meeting they borrowed my sound-system since the youths organised. They plant the crops to raise funds for the sound system, but drought session has spoiled their vegetables.
     I am appealing to anyone who is willing to support our youths financially for the sound system (K1000) (about $310 USD).

Medical Missionary Work Report PNG
     “All gospel workers should know how to give the simple treatments that do so much to relieve pain and remove disease.” {MH 145.2}
     My wife and I started the medical missionary work in the 2014 after spending some years in the gospel missionary fields up into the mountains of highlands and the coastal and islands fields of PNG. I was convinced to do the fulltime medical work after sister ____ took the health session during camp at ____. Her simple way of teaching causes a big challenge in my life to take up this roll as medical missionary. And I accept this as the Divine call.
     With much prayer we begin our practical within our family and church members, then moves on to the villages. News spread out slowly and widely from the patients who received physical healings.  Four hundred and three patients were treated within this two and half year period and most patients are with chronic diseases. Only four patients died during our treatments.
     We usually kept 3-4 patients for a week or two in our home and treat them. I traveled around the neighbouring communities and also miles away for treatment when the requests reach my door step while leaving the patients with my wife for caring and treatment. We have facing a lot of challenges when dozens of patients’ needs a treatment at the same time, or when the poor patient cannot afford to meet his/her expenses for the olive oil, cayenne peppers or market fruits & veggies for the treatment....
     Positive results of the medical work we have done here in our own territory has become a news and been gradually reaching out to other centres and provinces. Once it reached the door steps of the needy souls without hesitating they started inviting me to travel out to treat them.

Report for ____ PROVINCE
     12 patients have been treated in the ____ village in ____ Province. I put 36 people in a Detox program for internal cleansing. I fetched the 18 ltrs of sea water from ____ all the way to ____ for treatment and detoxing.  And mostly the student from ____ High School involved in this cleansing program. One highlighted the program was the Catholic leading man was also involved in this treatment. He was really appreciated after asking me some questions about using all these simple herbs and treatments.

Report for ____ PROVINCE
     I respond to other calls from ____ province and I went and treated 18 patients in 2016. Most of the people who involved in this treatment are from the conference churches with their head elder also involved too.

Report for ____ PROVINCE
     Another invitation came from ____ church elder family so I went and helped 3 people this year 2017.
     Most of my patients are from the (SDA) conference churches and some patients have showing their appreciation by donating me some medical equipment such as blender, juicer and gas stove plus gas cylinder.
     Many a times, I took a long distance in walking to reach out patients for treating them those who are in bad situation and cannot able to come to my place. Sometimes I used to put myself in difficult situation when 5-10 patients were put in treatment in same week in different villages and homes. To go around with herbal drinks and other items for treatment is not an easy job, but very painful tasks while my wife taking care of other patients admit in our family home.
     We do the treatment and also teaching them the Simple 8 Laws of Health and the love of Jesus Christ.
FOOT NOTE: I/We never asked or beg for funds from the treated patients.  We don’t sell our remedies like others do in the streets of PNG.  Patients do meet their own expenses for the items like Olive oil/ Cayenne pepper/ Sea water expenses/ Garlic, etc…for treatment purposes.

Dear Bro Bob,
     3 John 2.
     Hi! bro Bob, how are you? I am so sorry that I just e-mail you today. We are so busy with our work for the Lord here in the Philippines. We really have a hectic schedule, and its just hard for me to find time to e-mail you.
     For few months past, we became busy with our medical missions in different barrios and churches, helping the sick through counseling, health lectures, treatment and cleansing. We also do church to church visitation, house to house work, and opening a new field at the same time. The Lord open a great work for us in ____ Province, and this is happening for almost three months already.
     Bro ____'s uncle, who is an SDA, 3 months ago, after we came back from ____, invited us to visit him and study with him in his place in ____. He already had a little knowledge of present truth, and he wanted to study it more clearly. So went there and stayed in his house for a week, and we shared to him the truth, especially the condition of the SDA church now and what the Lord wants us to do. He was convicted that it is truth, and although he is still inside the SDA (because he is just considering to share it to his children) but his heart is with the reformation and is praying that the time will come that he will one with us too. But God is using him inside. He is the one that become a bridge to shine the light to more brethren inside, and he bring us to their houses so we can present the truth to them.
     As of now bro Bob, there are 4 families who already accept the present truth and separated already from the SDA church. There are still a lot of calling for us to share the truth inside the SDA church here in ____, that’s why we decided to rent a house already while the work here is in progress. At the same time, while we are working to share the truth inside the SDA church, there are also a lot who are sick who wanted our help. We are treating them through the help of God and through the natural remedies. Through God's healing power, two people already got healed from their sickness and we bring back to God all the glory!
     Bro Bob, we really have so many work to do here and we are praying that the Lord help us, and send us power to do it successfully, for without Him we have nothing to do. And we appeal to you and to all the brethren to please send us your help in prayer and in whatever way you can, to so at least lessen our burden. For since the time that he (my husband) decided to come back into God's work, left his job and fully dedicated His whole time in God's work, we had a hard time then. But we still continue doing His work amidst the trials. Please pray for our work here bro Bob.
     Last Sabbath, an Adventist lady spend Sabbath with us. She told us that they had a group who is spending Sabbath in the house of a couple who is also an SDA and they don’t want to enter the SDA church already. She told us that what this couple is teaching them is like what we are preaching. So she invited us this coming Sabbath to spend Sabbath with them in their group. So we pray that we will be one also in doctrine.
     This coming Oct 28, we have a schedule of spending Sabbath in ____, on Oct 31- Nov 5, we will be going to ____, for we were invited there for the Camp meeting there. After ____, bro ____ were invited to go to ____, then ____ and will go back to ____ again to visit and strengthen our newly established church there, while me and some other young people will go back here in ____ to continue the work that we have started. It’s like that we've been travelling around the Philippines. So please help and pray for us.
     Till here for now bro Bob. May God continue to use us in His work while there are still time, and may we bring many souls to Christ's feet for His own's name glory. God bless!
In Christ, s.b., Philippines.


Elder Sessler.
     Christian greetings from this way.  When we look at the way Lord hath led us we can say praise the LORD.  Sometimes sunshine, others rains and storms, but all is well with him who trusts the Lord for He hath promised to be with us until the end of the world.
     Elder I used almost (all) my support to put right/repair the Risograph.  Someone was brought from ____, he dismantled the whole drum system and replaced some (parts with) a few spares, it is working now.  It needs to work and send the silent messengers out.  It is my earnest prayer that someone supports this ministry. There are people whom we need to give Plague and Fire of Fanaticism and WCC and SDA, AND EVEN OTHER BOOKLETS. The true knowledge or the reason as to why we are separated (from apostate church) is getting obscure (and we need to) help that people may not be destroyed [Hosea 6:4]
     I visited Kenya (for) the camp meeting...I also had malaria breakdown, but by His strength I was strengthened. The theme of the camp was The Character of Which Hasteneth the Second Coming, (and) it (was) a blessing.  We baptized eight souls.  Save (except for) two years (now) we have had a problem of the (water we) have (obtained from the) bore hole, but now for sometime hath been down (filled up with debree and needs to be pumped or re-drilled).  We humbly request 1,050,000= equivalent to 350= US Dollars so that next time we have a camp we can have (sufficient and good) water.
     Elder (please) help us (to) get a laptop or ipad.  There are lots things (research materials) that I may need to put together (into sermons and present truth talks) and also when traveling for ministry, carrying heavy luggages (containing my SOP books) is not that easy.  (So) pleases come my help.
     Thanks for the support, may God bless you.
Yours in Christ, B.K., Uganda.


Dearest Elder Robert,
     Greetings to you and your family in faith. Am delighted to write to you and report to you the works done while in Australia from 5th September to 11th October 2017. The Lord is faithful and good to all His workers. This was my first trip overseas, but the Lord is the faithful in all our trips as believers.
     I got my flight from ____ airport in Zambia at 1:35pm, and was in ____ South Africa at 4.25. I got into another plane to ____, Australia. We left ____ at 10:45pm and we landed in ____ at 12:20pm the following day. This was a wonderful experience for me. Praise God I meet my loving Brethren in faith br. ____ and sister ____ who welcomed wonderfully.  They took me around in ____ city up to the ocean where I saw an amazing situation when the sun gets set in the waters in a twinkling of an eye. I had a wonderful experience and good discussion with these Brethren. By the way sister ____ is my adopted mother and I was treated as a son and we discussed a lot concerning missionary work. These Brethren are doing a TREMEDIOUS missionary work in Australia in our faith. It is not easy to preach the message there as people seem to be very busy, but they are doing their best. May the Lord bless them more and more.
     At 9:30pm I was taken back to the airport where I got into another flight to ____ about five hours. Finally I landed in ____ at 04:45am and was picked by this lovely family friends.
     This family is a Sunday keeping believers, but with a very good spirit of relationship. They old couple and their children a good family I have never meet before. They kept me like one of their members in everything. Then knowing my faith and my diety they respected this. And a day came after they had agreed with their leaders in the church that I should speak or preach to them. This was not an easy situation as these believers are taught this doctrine of not under the law but grace while breaking the Sabbath. I praise God that He gave me a message to present in John 14:1-..seeing this church full of old people looking for salvation but not in a correct way. After the presentations many people where puzzled with the truths and (I) was again asked to present another.
     The Lord is wonderful. I spoke the truth and the last Sunday before I left I again presented another message. Thereafter I was given another opportunity to visit them for the same work. I could not understand this arrangement cause according to me I thought I just went to visit not knowing how the Lord is working in these last days. Elder Bob, it is not easy to present or give a message to people in Australia as many are busy with their programs. I also learnt that some people in that country can't even receive a tract or booklets where the word of God is written. They can even sue you for giving them what they don't like. Further more, I now understand why Christ has not come (yet) cause many have not received these truths we have. Please Brethren let us pray for these souls in Australia and support those doing missionary work in that country.
     Whilst there I had good time to communicate with brother ____ who comes from Philippines Island but working there. We had a lot of plans to do medical missionary work in many continents with any willing brethren across this planet. We want to join hands and train in Philippines Island as qualified naturopathy doctors then open Health Centres in those countries where need is for spreading the Three Angels’ Messages through Medical Missionary work according to sister White. This is why brother ____ sent to our separated brethren the quotations in Medical Missionary work.
     I will give you more other information from those brethren (with whom) I planted the seed (of truth). May God happy us to do more. When I arrived home in Zambia I had found a lot of calls from many people asking for our materials. Please continue supporting the reprinting project as it has done a lot.
Thanks, B.M., Zambia.


(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Elder Bob,
     I hope I find you well my brother and that the Lord is leading you. It is a pleasure once again to give you some updates on the work in Zimbabwe....
     In our last Committee meeting held in April, we had planned that our camp meeting should be held on the 13th-14th of August. It was resolved that it should be conducted in a manner as to fulfil the work of evangelism. "It [camp meeting] is one of the most effective methods of arresting the attention of the people and reaching all classes with the gospel invitation." 6T p. 31.  As a result we had to desist from holding this camp meeting in-out-of-the-way place and in continuing in the same place year by year. Based on that reason, we then held our camp meeting at ____ High School where our sister, sister ____, resides. We were indeed well located, that is we were within a community we could reach with the gospel invitation. Sister ____ had widely advertised.......
     The Namibia Camp meeting was scheduled to start on 27 August until 03 September. This time I almost failed to attend due to lack of finances. But at last, the Namibian Church sent me means for the trip on the 24th of August. That very day I left home for ____ where I managed to meet with sister ____ who also had earlier on showed interest to attend. She was supported by her local church for her trip and off we went. We traveled safely until we arrived in Namibia on the 25th of August. We were welcomed by brother ____ at the border and he took us to his home. We had a Sabbath in his home and finally on Sunday morning, the 27th of August we left for the campsite. We were supposed to have ministers' meeting that day before camp meeting started but the meeting was deferred to a later date as other Zambian ministering brethren had not (yet) arrived.
