THE  TRINITY -- Part 2
Is Jesus Christ God?

     Does the Bible declare that Jesus Christ is a God other than God–the Father?
     “But unto the Son he (God–the Father) saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom.  Thou has loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” Hebrews 1:8-9.

     We can clearly see in this text that Jesus Christ is a God other than His Father who is also a God!  So we have the truth clearly pictured here that there is not just one God–the Father in heaven, but there are at least two Gods in heaven!
     Now some will try to ignore this truth, that there are two Gods in heaven, and will quickly want to point out that in this above text it states: “therefore God (referring to Jesus Christ), even thy God (referring to the Father) hath anointed thee...”
     But does this truth, that God–the Father is the God of Jesus Christ, deny the fact that Jesus Christ is also a God?  No.  Does this truth somehow prove the spiritualistic Babylon belief that the Father is the only God in heaven?  No, in fact it proves just the opposite!

     This very statement, “therefore God (referring to Jesus Christ), even thy God (referring to the Father)”, shows us that God–the Son is humbly submitting Himself to God–His Father.  This truth not only clearly destroys the spiritualistic Babylonian belief that there is only one God in heaven, but it also clearly destroys the spiritualistic Trinitarian belief that there is just one God who divided Himself into three parts which are supposed to be all equal with each other!  So this text in Hebrews destroys the spiritualistic Babylonian and Trinitarian beliefs that there is only one God!
     Now who declared that there is another God in heaven other than the Father?  The Father Himself!  Then who will dare to say that the Father is a liar and doesn’t know what He is talking about?  And who will dare to continue to obstinately believe that there is only one God–the Father when the Father Himself has plainly declared that His Son is a God as well?
     Since there is more than just one God in heaven, then we have to understand that when the Bible uses the word “God” in a text, it does not always refer to the Father!  Only those who are Spiritualistic and Babylonian in their understanding will continue to believe that every time the word God is used in Scripture that it can only refer to the Father.  But those who understand the truth, that there are at least two Gods in the Godhead, will seek to know which God is being referred to in the texts.

     For instance, which God is being referred to in the following text?
     “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.  And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.” Exodus 3:14-15.

     Which God is being referred to in this text: God-the Father, or God-the Son?  Who was the Great I AM which was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and who led the children of Israel out of Egypt and throughout all their wilderness wanderings?
     “(Christ stated) Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he say it, and was glad.  Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” John 8:56-58.
     So Jesus Christ was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Great I AM, the God who did all the miracles against Egypt, the God which led the children of Israel out of Egypt and through all their wilderness wanderings, and then into the promised land!  Thus not all the texts of Scripture which refer to God are only talking about God–the Father, but there are texts which are also speaking about God–the Son Jesus Christ!  And remember, Jesus Christ was the God of Israel–The Great I AM!

     The Apostle Paul backs this up by saying:
     “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.  But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.” 1 Corinthians 10:1-5.

     So who was the God–the Great I AM which led the children of Israel and who overthrew and killed some of those who were disobedient?  It was Christ Jesus–their Rock!  And for those who just cannot believe that Jesus Christ was the God who led the children of Israel, but will only admit that Jesus Christ is the Rock of Israel, then please listen closely to what a Rock means in Scripture:
     “Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.  He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he....And he shall say, Where are their (heathen people’s) gods, their rock in whom they trusted?...See now that I, even I am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I would and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.  For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.” Deuteronomy 32:3-4, 37, 39-40.

     Did any of Christ’s followers recognize this truth that Jesus was indeed their God and that there were no other gods on earth besides Him?  Yes!
     “Then saith he (Jesus) to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach thither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.  And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.” John 20:27-28.

     So the one disciple who was known to be a doubter, was the one who acknowledged that Jesus Christ was actually His God -– the God of Israel which had delivered them from Egypt!  And the Old Testament backs this up!
     “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6.

     “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” Micah 5:2.

     “Yet I am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.  I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.” Hosea 13:4-5.

     Now since Jesus was the mighty everlasting God and everlasting Father to Israel, and he plainly stated that there were no other gods but Him, did this deny the truth that God–the Father was still the God of heaven!  No, not in the least degree.
     The phrase “and there is no god with me” or “thou shalt know no god but me” must not be extremely interpreted to mean that Jesus was calling Himself the only God throughout the entire universe!  If you twist this statement into this extreme interpretation, then you would have Christ denying that God–the Father was also a God; and this is simply not true.
     What Christ was declaring to His people was the fact that on this earth, “there is no god with me” and “thou shalt know no god but me”.  Or in other words Christ was declaring that He was the only God on this earth, and all the other so-called gods of the earth, including the Devil himself, were false and were not to be worshiped.  But in declaring this fact, Christ was not in the least degree denying that His Father was God over all the universe!

     For those who understand this truth, they will see that Christ was actually declaring the truth that in the beginning there was more than one God in heaven.  That one of these Gods decided to humble Himself, to veil His Godhood by coming down and being born a human, thereby experiencing all that we sinful humans beings go through.  And why?  So that this God could be a merciful and faithful high priest in all that pertains to our salvation and to save His people FROM all their sins!  May God–the Father be praised for sending Jesus down to this earth, and may God–the Son Jesus Christ be praised for becoming our Elder Brother, Redeemer and Sacrifice for sin so that we might have salvation!

     Now did Jesus rebuke Thomas for calling Him his God?  No, but please listen to what Christ told him:
     “Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” John 20:29.

     So Thomas was not rebuked in the least degree for recognizing and publicly admitting that Jesus Christ was his God other than God–the Father.  In fact Christ stated that there is a blessing pronounced upon all those who will also give up their doubts and believe the same truth as Thomas did!  But there are indeed many who doubt that Jesus Christ is their God other than God–the Father.

Baptist Minister Rodney R. Romney–"...He [Jesus] was not God, and never claimed to be." Journey to Inner Space: Finding God In Us, p 30.

Kenneth Copeland of TBN–"Thus saith the Lord, I Jesus, never claimed to be God." Quoted from 1991 tape by Texe Marrs, "More High Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Helen Shookman–"[Jesus said] I am not God....I do not want you to worship me." A Course in Miracles (regarded as a New Age Bible, and written under the direction of a spirit calling itself Jesus), quoted from 1991 tape by Texe Marrs, "High Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Jehovah's Witnesses--"Jehovah's Witnesses...believe that the Son is merely 'a god'...[but] he is definitely not Almighty God--Jehovah....And Jesus is only called 'a god' by way of concession."  Jehovah's Witnesses: Answered Verse by Verse, p 42, by David A. Reed.

     So there are many doubters who hold to the same spiritualistic Babylonian teachings of old by denying the Godhood of Christ.  They refuse to admit that Jesus Christ was the mighty everlasting God of the children of Israel–the Great I AM, their eternal Rock.  And why do they refuse the truth?  Because the Devil makes his error to appear so attractive, so gloriously clothed in a beautiful enticing light, that they fear to give it up believing that they would be casting away something precious.  Yet the Scriptures declare these spiritualistic doctrines to be nothing but darkness which corrupts those who believe in them.


     What consequences are there to those who choose to cling to their doubts, clinging to these spiritualistic Babylonian and Trinitarian doctrines, and going against scriptural evidence?  In believing or declaring that Jesus is not their God and Rock, thereby rejecting the Godhood of Christ, how can Jesus work in their behalf for their salvation?

     Since Jesus is the Truth, and these individuals and churches reject the truth about Jesus being a God, then their lack of faith prevents Jesus from working in their behalf for their salvation, and He cannot give to them eternal life!  And by the way, it is only a God who has eternal life and thus can grant to us eternal life.

     But praise God this spiritualistic Babylonian and Trinitarian doctrine is not the truth!  Praise God that Jesus is our eternal God, along with God–our Father.  If this were not the case, and Jesus was not also our God other than the Father, then we would all be without hope!  Why? Because Jesus alone, not God–the Father, but Jesus alone is our Resurrection and the Life!
     “Jesus saith unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.  Believest thou this?” John 11:25-26.

     Dear friends, Christ is directly speaking to you and asks: “believest thou this” truth?  Remember, it was Jesus Christ–the Rock and everlasting God of Israel which stated “I kill, and I make alive” Deuteronomy 32:39.  Thus all who refuse to believe that Jesus is also a God Himself, apart from God–the Father, are thereby denying the Godhood of Christ and will be destroyed in the lake of fire.  They have ventured to deny that Christ is God, and it is only because of the truth that Christ is indeed a God Himself that they can gain eternal life!
     “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us...He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life....And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.  This is the true God, and eternal life.” 1 John 1:1-2, 5:12, 20.

     But those who will give up all spiritualistic and Babylonian errors and doubts, and who will believe and confess like Thomas did–that Christ is their God, will indeed have the assurance of eternal life –- even if they should die and must be resurrected from the dead!  This is because the Godhood of Christ is our assurance of being raised from the death and given eternal life.  And if Christ is not God, then we are all lost!
     Jesus Christ, referring to Himself, is directly speaking to each one of us and asks:
     “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.  Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.  Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgement is passed over from my God?  Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary?  There is no searching of his understanding.  He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:25-31.

     Now we have clearly seen that, apart from the Father being God, the Father Himself states that Jesus Christ is a God, Jesus Himself states that He is a God, and the Scriptures declare plainly that Jesus Christ is a God.  Thus we see that the spiritualistic Babylonian and Trinitarian doctrines of there being only one God is completely false because the Bible teaches that there are at least two Gods in heaven –- God-the Father, and God His Son Jesus Christ.  But what about the Holy Spirit?

     We know that the Holy Spirit was involved in creation.  Is it therefore also a God, apart from the Father and the Son?
     This is what we will be examining in our next Newsletter.


     The Lord is also blessing our Bible Study Course outreach.  In just the last 4 weeks we have received 8 new requests for Bible Studies!  Including these, we currently have 26 Bible Studies active!  May God be praised!
     What seems to be having great success at generating new interests to enroll in Bible Studies is by placing small posters, which have removable invitation cards, on community and public bill-boards at supermarkets, town halls, etc.  Any interests can take one of the invitation cards home, fill it out, and mail it back to us.  If you are impressed to place one of these in your area, we will be happy to send you one of these attractive posters along with several invitation cards.  Just let us know.  We also express our appreciation to brother Melvin Dingle for his talents in helping us with this evangelistic outreach tool.  Your continued prayers in this evangelistic endeavor are greatly appreciated.

     Also many of our supporters have noticed that we have changed our website at www.LightMinistries.com.  When visiting the site you will see the first area which is for non-SDAs.  In order to visit the SDA area, all you have to do is to find the link "For SDAs" which appears in the right-hand link section of the opening page.  When you click on this link, you will be taken into the SDA area (the actual URL address is http://www.LightMinistries.com/SDA).  We solicit your prayers that many more non-SDAs will be encouraged to visit the site, and will be led to understand and choose to follow the present truth as it is in Jesus before it is too late.
     We have also placed on our LightMinistries.com Web Site in the SDA section all known Ellen G. White articles which were printed in the Review and Herald magazines from 1849-1959!  We also have indexed every article, and arranged these in alphabetical order for quicker and greater access to any particular topic of interest!  So our people no longer need to buy these expensive and large Review and Herald books, nor do they need to wait until these books should come back into print.  But now all they have to do is to visit this link www.LightMinistries.com/SDA/Books/id801.htm and they will be able to view, read, study, and freely download to their hearts content these most precious and valuable truth filled articles.  We also extend our appreciation to brother Jim Snipes for his help in making this possible!

     The Lord is continuing to bless our LightMinistries.com Web Site!  But due to cutting expense, our Web hosting service decided to change their statistics gathering software, and it is now very limited.  Because of this change, we will no longer be able to report what Countries our visitors were from, nor how long they stayed on the site, nor how many files they download.  We also lost all statistics for the month of January.  But in the month of February we had 80,912 hits, which were generated by 14,108 visitors.  In these Visitor Sessions, 28,445 documents of Present Truth were viewed, and over 1.11 billion bits of information were downloaded (this download figure only represents 13 days of February).
       In the month of March we had 77,854 hits, which were generated by 16,195 visitors.  In these Visitor Sessions, 33,353 documents of Present Truth were viewed, and over 2.76 billion bits of information were downloaded!  So for these 2 months alone, well over 3.8 billion bits of information were downloaded from our Present Truth Web Site by over 30,200 visitors!  MAY GOD'S HOLY NAME BE PRAISED FOR EVER!!

     On our TrueChurchofGod.info Web Site, because of the same change in web statistics gathering software, the only complete statistics we were able to obtain was for the month of March.  We had 11,981 hits in this month, which were generated by 2,912 visitors.  In these Visitor Sessions, 6,377 documents of Present Truth were viewed, and over 444 million bits of information was downloaded.

     TO OUR READERS: For those who are not able to have a home church to attend and who miss the benefit of fellowshipping together with others of like faith, there is an on-line home church which meets every Sabbath at 12:00 noon Central Time.  This is a live broadcast of one of our separated Home Churches in Indiana which is pastored by brother Nicholas.  Please feel free to come and fellowship with others of like faith and enjoy the spiritual uplifting experience, and also be able to chat with them after church!  If you would like to fellowship, go to www.RemnantofGod.org/pogmchat.htm.


     "Let There Be Light" Ministries is devoted 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; 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 and blessings and without 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 this Ministry reach out to 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 common 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 Bob and family,
     I received a wonderful gift today - a box of "Abomination of Desolation" books.  Thank you very much.  They will be put to very good use.
     In recent months a number of people who regularly receive literature from me have separated from the SDA church.  These books will give them a lot of support, especially in their home churches where these dear people will learn a lot more about the wonderful present truth.
     We regularly pray for your family and your Ministry.  Please pray for us, as many people accept the wonderful truths of God's word.
     Christian greetings, E.&.D.D., South Africa.

Dear brother, sister Sessler and family,
     Greetings from ____...May this new year bring blessings from our Lord Jesus Christ.
     In my last letter I told you of ____.  He seemed very receptive to truth, but he is struggling with the Sabbath truth.  Please pray for him.  ____, his friend, gave him "The National Sunday Law" book.  We are praying for him that he will see the light.
     God bless you as you serve the Lord.
     Your sister in Christ, A.U., CA.

Dear bro. R. Sessler,
     I received your recent letter...How glad I am to continually receives correspondence from you.  I see your concern about our Ministry here in the Phil. especially here in ____.
     First, as a news, on ____ I have a one hour radio program in ____...I was requested by the brethren there to hold such program as what I'm doing here in ____.  A great impact was created especially to the SDA (church).  It is because of the expose which I always include in every doctrinal topic.  Thanks for the document regarding the WCC, terrorism, SDA stock market and SDA principles which the G.C. departed.  A true awakening was made.  Many telephone calls and cell phone messages ask me for photo copies for what I have said.  Others asked where my congregation is.  Really, through that program a chaos among SDA (occurred)...(SDA) pastors was not able to answer even once (against what I shared).  In the program I always conclude that the SDA now, that we see, is no longer the SDA before -- during the time of Mrs. White.  It is the first time in ____ that this truth about the real situation of SDA was aired. (Editor's Note: God be praised!)
     Second, about our Radio program at ____ in ____, continues....Many believers from the big SDA Corp. no longer gives their tithes to the organization because of many secrets (wicked actions) divulged to them, and unanswered queries (submitted to them from listeners) about principal issues.  There are chaos with the organization (big church) that often results to the coming out.  Then (they) looks for other SDA congregation and flocks (to attend).  Now that is me of my work to visit them upon invitation....
     God be with us and our Ministry.
     Truly yours, P.B., Philippines.

Dear Bob,
     Greetings to you all at Let There Be Light Ministries, and may God bless you.  We keep your work for Christ in our prayers and we want to have a part in this great work, so we'll try to send each month as much as we can...
     Thank you so much for your Newsletter.  Please pray for (us) and again God bless you & yours.
     Your brother & sister in Christ, L. & M.K., Canada.

     Received my order Wed.  Thank you.  Have read about the 144,000, & have started Last Day Events.  I love Spirit of Prophecy & thank God for sister White.
     Am looking forward to spending another Sabbath with you soon.  That is if the weather ever gets better.  We have had snow, ice, & rain.  Sometimes all at once!...
     My best to all, T., OR.

     You are always in our prayers.  Let us know if you're ever in our area or within a day's drive.
     Love in Christ Jesus, L.,P. & J., NH.



(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Elder Bob,
     Shalom !
     Firstly I would like to thank you for the money that you wired towards our outreach, and may God bless you all real good....just last week I concluded our evangelical outreach in three villages, I will send the report soon. We had 44 baptism....
     Our prayers for you is that the good Lord will continue to bless you. How are you all and those who love His appearing? Regularly we mention all of you in our prayers. We pray that the brethren will continue to be touched by our plight here and to continue in their contributions towards our evangelism outreaches....
     We praise God for you and for all that you mean to us. God is at work here and we need the hands of those who will help to uphold our hands. We can no longer cope with the demands of the ministry. The work is growing and we are been hindered by lack of fund. Seven full time workers has joined us but we can't be able to care for their families. The Sabbath truth must be circulated. Very surprise that Sunday observing groups who don't has the truth have sponsors but we whom God has revealed His Sabbath breakthrough and open doors are suffering in finances and resources. Forgive me for sounding very worried, it seemed that many American brethren don't love the work in Africa hence they don't help, but we thank God for some of you brethren who has continued to help, though we need more hands. Thanks for your concern over this work, but you alone can't be able to carry this load alone. There are open doors and people are responsive to the gospel now than ever in this country as have never been seen in her history. Please speak to the brethren over there to come over and help us....
     Attached is the photos that we took last month on our outreach with the king of Ouidah and his ministers, etc. It was a very wonderful occasion as such has never happened in ____ that the voodoo chiefs will assemble in such a way to hear the gospel of Christ. Several voodoo chiefs came out to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour. What God is doing amazes me. Please be with us in prayer...as we shall be in all night prayer in the family of Mr. ____ of ____ a Voodoo priest...He has accepted the Lord as his personal Lord and Saviour with his entire family.
     Please if possible join us with prayer and fasting because it will be a time of warfare. Jesus as usual will come out victorious. If God delivers this family, the news will go as wildfire and will draw many souls to Christ. This man married a woman that was dedicated to the god of voodoo, since her marriage with her he has never had peace of mind. His life is full of disappointment and sorrows. He has virtually lost all that he has in life and his children became vagabond, etc. I don't have the best word to describe their situation.
     Pray that God will use us effectively to deliver this family from the clutch of the evil one. Pray for my life/family, protection, wisdom and strength and of those who will be in this battle with me. Ask for God's filling of His Spirit. Very unfortunate that some pastors has also risen against us there. They accuse us of proselyte, and that their churches are now empty because of us. Some of these so called pastors are not different from the voodoo adherent, as they have denied the power of the Almighty God. Please pray along with Psalm 91, 23, Is. 54:17, Lk.10:19, Num. 23:23 please pray for victory. We have no single doubt about our victory and the liberation of this family....
     I also want you to remember March 21, 2004 in prayers, this day I was invited by Intercessors for Israel to give a talk. They are having a day prayer conference for which the Israeli Ambassador for Ivory Coast will be in attendance and also the President of Benin Republic. Hand of fellowship was also extended to me by the group. Please remember me in your prayers for God to use me mightily.
     Thanks for all your contributions so far.
     Yours in Christ, B.P., Benin.


(Combination of 2 letters) Dear bro Bob,
     1 John 3:1
     May I once again greet you in His wonderful name and may peace, love and joy be with you always my brother.
     Thank you very much for your good advice and prayer, the work in Fiji is now moving forward. The recently printed booklet "Why Are Protestants Bowing to the Pope" is doing very well with these various denominations such as Methodist, Assembles of God and other Churches. We have distributed this booklet to the various Churches in Fiji apart from the SDA and the response is very encouraging indeed (and) more of them are coming (to my) home for more booklets. I asked some of them and the answer was that they are very glad that they now know the truth about Sunday worship. If they demand more, maybe we will have to reprint this booklet again. (Editor's note: yes, by all means, and praise God!) Some of the SDA people came home for this booklet after reading (it and) then they told me that their church should have done this work but they did not. I have explained to them (the) reason why they are not doing it. Some of the SDA people came home to show their appreciation about the work we are doing, and I praise God for it....
     We spread out tracts, booklets and pamphlets throughout the streets of ____ City, ____ Town, ____ Town and ____ Town. House to house visitations is still going on and a lot of people have come to know the "Let There Be Light" Ministries now. I met a lot of people everyday and explained to them the truth of today. Thousands of tracts and booklets were distributed to the people....
     I have just returned from a trip to islands in the Lower Groups...It was not easy for my own people to accept me but after one week of explanations and visitations to there homes they slowly beginning to see the light. I took with me five cartons of tracts and two cartons of the newly translated booklet and some other booklets in English and distributed them all in my island. We have established a home church in the island and more people are coming to hear the truth. I have just returned about two days ago and that is the reason I did not answer your message...
     The biggest enemy of the work in the Island are the brothers from the SDA, even though they appreciated the newly translated booklet. I was invited by some of them to explain to them about their beloved church (SDA) why are we saying that the church is in BABYLON. I have explained to them everything from the Bible and from the Spirit of Prophecy on that Sabbath day, most of them accept and agreed with me but some still think that their church is still God's True church, I am sure these people will come around to accept the truth very soon.
     I have found some very good and strong brothers and they will be coming to ____ at the end of this month. Some of them do realize that there is something very wrong in their church, these are the people who are looking for the truth now. Yesterday, six women from the SDA Church came home to ask me if I could come to them next Sabbath to explain to them the truth for this time. I agreed with them and I will be joining them on the Sabbath day. These ladies do not go to their Church any more, they told me that they feel that there is something very wrong in their Church. I am going back to the Island on the month of ____ and I will see if the work there is growing....
     May God continue to bless you and yours my brother.
     Yours in His Service, B.A., Fiji.


(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Brother Bob,
     May the grace of God find more place in the work that God has laid on us. Surely God is good to us. He has extended His watch care to us throughout the year and has worked with our efforts to draw souls to Himself. We need more of that grace in this New Year's duties.
     Tracts, booklets and many studies have been given by us through this past year. More than hundred homes have been visited, many sick people have been treated, healed and encourage by the Counsels on Healthful Living. Seeds of the kingdom have been sown in many souls in various efforts hard to report specifically, and we pray that these will bear fruit at the right time to God's glory. We also pray to have more strength for more work this year in increased capacities.
     Please remember the request for booklets, tracts especially before and during the public meetings, we have planned to hold in the first two weeks of March....please remember to apportion us something for this valuable meeting as you place it before God. This please is a special request.  Also I wish to remind you of the video cassettes. (Editor's Note: they are already in the mail to you.)...Sooner than we may expect communication lines will be barred from our use and then we shall be separated and secluded from brethren who are physically afar, except the exercises of intercessory.  Remembers us (my family) in your prayers as we shoulder the problem of our little child I lastly about (who has brain damage). We are in great need for this problem! We pray to be enabled to trust God in this darkness as well as in the light, and for His glory....
     Thank you for all your prayers for us. Thank you also for your encouragement in our baby's problem. I thank God for it also. In it there are precious lessons of perseverance, complete trust in the Lord when one cannot even see the other side and to cope with the situation tirelessly is also among other good lessons.  God is in His work in this locality just as in all the world. Through medical evangelism God has opened doors to us, to the high class as well as the low. Through this means we have been able to visit and give our words to ____ County Council Officials who decided not to charge our small rented office any money for license. And in addition to this our Municipal Authorities have given us permit to freely hold our open air meetings as we have moved our office work within it. We have been creating awareness on natural ways of healing as prescribed by the Creator. For the last two months we have held such meetings once or twice every week. Together with this the whole third angel's message is being sounded. I praise God for this special privilege offered us. It is special because all other street preachers have been forbidden, and holding meetings is highly charged by these authorities now.
     However we adjourned the March big public meetings for thorough planning and consultation with those we wanted to participate. I need enough literature for this effort. Please if you have not yet mailed, do it. Pray that this opportunity and influence establish our work and draw many souls to the truth as they be warned of the coming judgments.
     Your brother in the service, B.P., Kenya.

(Combination of 3 letters) Dear Brother Sessler,
     Isa 58:1.
     Let the Lord be praised for what He is doing for us here. It is last week Friday I arrived to ____ from ____ and ____. I moved to ____ camp meeting which ended successfully from whence I went to ____ (where is) a new Centre.
     I started there through the hand of God, (and now) the Centre has 15 people. Here the problem is place to assemble for worshiping for we are begging, no money to purchase a piece of land....
     I have arrived from ____ where with my co-workers brother ____ and ____ we toured for urgent need.  We sometimes take time to report our duties due to being too busy attending calls from friends who want to know what has gone wrong both in "SDA" and Sunday keeping.  Now from Sunday to Friday I have to wake early to attend calls from near and far as well. The strange thing has happened to our country, as the new government took over fare has gone up, life in general is now very high to this therefore city life has defeated me....Though that ____ Centre is growing monthly by receiving new comer joining the movement.  The good Lord has done it. The worst opponent I had from "SDA" has (now) joined the movement (and) has vow to work upon those who she influenced to stay in the nominal church. Now I am seeing the hand of God (working). Not only that, (but) the men whom we baptized last year have gone up country to start new Centres.  Now in Kenya there is arousement every where and wherever we go people are joining, so may you join us in prayer (for) God to open ways and means to reach them all in a needed hour.
     Thanks for the tracks and booklet which has assisted the work greatly. Tomorrow also I will go out of ____ to see progress in ____. The work of crying aloud for the abomination that is done in both the church and the world is going on seriously. It has reached where I don't have time to waste for calls are coming from many parts of the country.
     I have come from ____ about 450km away from ____, this is a new Centre in the land of the ____ tribe which has started with a good number of members. After that I went to another new Centre ____ where I was welcomed highly with those who have heard the message of the abomination and have not yet separated. They requested me to arrange for the effort there so that they may separate on day light. Brother, may you know this that new Centre which are coming are facing a serious problem and the problem is Centres are far from the other and workers are few. Besides that the Centre of ____ I am supporting it from ____ which is very expensive....
     Thank you for your encouragement and advice your Kenyan workers. I am also advising that both you and brethren should do away with those who are not for the unity here....If all of you who are united there will give them deaf ear may be they will repent and co-operate....Please may I end there by request, you and the brethren to arrange to visit Kenya about one month, so that you can learn what is done here. Be communicating always it creates encouragement and it gives strength.
     May God continue to bless all your ways in Christ's sake.
      Eleventh hour servant, S., Kenya.

(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Bob,
     1 John 3:1.
     Sorry for not reporting in the time, I received money for herbs which I received on 15th Jan 2004. In fact though I did not say anything, truly it has helped much in the cause of buying herbs which I have been unable to afford. I received kshs ____ I have used in buying spirulina 3,000 (Kenya Shillings), Garlic, carrots, cayenne, cucumber, parsley, eucalyptus oil, lemons, echinacea at 1,189 (kshs). These am using in treating a woman with breast cancer, a man with syphliss, and another man with a skin cancer, one man with malaria. I used 500 (kshs) for urine bags and enemas. 400 (kshs) for bus fare because at that time I had nothing to support me in travelling to the place where I bought all these herbs....
     On 10th feb. I received $____... Please thank you for doing it early a bit for it has helped us in the effort where we have stayed for two weeks which we shall finish on sunday 15th Feb.
     (Medical Report) Cured case: pneumonia 7 people, malaria 2 ppl, coughing 6 ppl, stomach disorders 5 ppl, flue 5 ppl....Let us all pray for the work because time is over and Satan is not asleep....
     "As we enter upon a new year let it be with an earnest resolve to have our course onward and upward. Let our life be more elevated and exalted than it has hitherto been."
     God is good because He has led us, save throughout the year which has passed to eternity, and He has made us see the early days of the new year.  May He lead us also until we see the early days of the new years of eternity beyond.
     Last year was a year of hardships and threatenings of all kinds, many things lost and meetings were held without cash like ____ camp meeting. Much prayers are needed by this time as we near the end of the world.
     Medical report: miscarriages - 2 people, boils - 1 person, malaria - 2, blood cleansing - 2, tonsillitis - 1....
     May God Bless the supporters and yours.
     The servant of the Lord, P.N., Kenya.

(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Elder Bob,
     General Christian greetings and much hopes that the Lord has sustained you well through the old year to this new year.
     First of all I have to apologize for being quiet for all this long. I have not made shipwreck of faith, but very strong and working and defending the faith once delivered to the saints. I have been so busy with the work of establishing and stabilizing the place of worship since December 22 up to this time.  I wake up and start the work at 6 am and end at 5 pm. I will finish this work in the course of this week then we shall remain with the work of making benches for seating (in the home church) which will not keep me there though we have not enough capital of making them. This is the work that has tied me that I could not move anywhere except on the weekends on which I go to visit other home churches. Even today I have stole some minutes and left the work going on and come to town to write to you.
     We and few other workers had gone out like ____, ____ and others. So I am forced to be on work all through, but starting from Feb. I will be very free to continue with the ministerial work as always. Other home churches also need help to make shades or rooms for worship. We need your help. This is my home church which has been going on and is being finished. Work for the Lord while this day for the night cometh when none will work....
     The work is progressing and is difficult, but the apostasy of the Adventist Church is making the present message so easy especially the changing of the name has made the eyes of many to be opened. Now we are receiving calls from here and there that we need your message. Though there are many calls the enemies of the straight truth are trying to make even open wars but we still see the hand of God....
     God had blessed us so much that after ten years since our marriage we have been without a child. God who is great had comforted us so much that on Feb 22nd, He gave us a child and we were comforted from the book of Genesis 5:29 and we called him ____. (Editor's Note: Congratulations and may God be praised!) The exercise was severe for she was operated...but we thank God that they are all alright....
     We are so thankful for the booklets and tracts plus the support of the work we are receiving.  Thank you and may God bless you.
     B.N., Kenya.

Dear bro Bob,
     The grace of the Father, and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ be unto you and all our beloved brethren there.
     The Lord is good and has sustained us to this day, when events here, as elsewhere, are manifest that hour is now coming, no longer to delay. Brother, we earnestly solicit for prayers here. Ours has been among the first in Africa to monitor the progress for good governance. In the recent past we have seen stringent laws come into effect. The public transport sector has been the worst hit...The common has been worst hit following the corresponding hiking of fares on the roads. More is expected to be coming soon...Work however been going on.
     Up to February 15 we were in a Roman-controlled area, where a good response was shown by about ten souls committed themselves to the Lord. We saw God's divine protection. Right now we are in another area of mixed faiths, and we shall be there for the next two weeks. Pray for us that God might touch the hearts of His people, and that His servants might proclaim boldly the last message of mercy....
     My area of ministry, ____, has been blessed with one Sunday pastor joining the faith and committed to spreading this blessed message. It is a big blessing as Bro. ____ has (been) all alone in the area for so long being a Sunday dominated region. If you can send us "Why are Protestants Bowing to the Pope?" it will do us well there....
     God bless you so much and His work too. Heb. 10:37-39, I., Kenya.


(Combination of 7 letters) My dearest Elder Bob,
     My greetings come to you and your family from the following scripture; “The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.”- Nahum 1:7.
     Thank you so much for your email, efforts and funds just wired....Indisputably, God's love is revealed in all His dealings with His people; and with clear, unclouded eyes, in adversity, in sickness, in disappointment, and in trial we are to behold the light of His glory in the face of Christ and trust to His guiding hand. I praise His Holy Name for His marvelous doings in our lives....
     I am writing to share with you the souls the Good Lord has blessed us with in the year 2003. These are the real fruits of your sacrificial gifts, literatures, and prayers. Thanks be to God Almighty who has crowned yours efforts in this part of His vineyard. I want you to know that you share in the joy of seeing these precious souls coming into God’s marvelous truth. Without your unselfish love and sacrifice, it would have been difficult for us to reach them with everlasting message of love. It is my earnest prayers these souls will have the gracious privilege to come up to you on the morning of resurrection day to say that "It was you who invited me into this heavenly Kingdom".  The redeemed will meet and recognize those whose attention they have directed to the uplifted Saviour. What blessed converse they will have with these souls! "I was a sinner," it will be said, "without God and without hope in the world; and you came to me, and drew my attention to the precious Saviour as my only hope. And I believed in Him. I repented of my sins, and was made to sit together with His saints in heavenly places in Christ Jesus." Others will say: "I was a heathen in heathen lands. You left your friends and comfortable home, and came to teach me how to find Jesus, and believe in Him as the only true God. I demolished my idols, and worshiped God, and now I see Him face to face. I am saved, eternally saved, ever to behold Him whom I love. I then saw Him only with the eye of faith, but now I see Him as He is. I can now express my gratitude for His redeeming mercy to Him who loved me, and washed me from my sins in His own blood."--Gospel Workers, p. 518....
     FRUITS OF YOUR SACRIFICIAL GIFTS IN THE YEAR 2003 (130 different names and addresses listed).  (Editor's Note: May God be blessed indeed!)...As per your question; only five souls of those correspondent students are fellowshipping in our home church at present. Although, most of them have completed our Bible and Health lesson studies concurrently with commitment questions, and I have been made to understand that they all accept our present truth and pledge to live the truth shown them by the Holy Spirit. In accordance with their good performance and pledge, I have issued and sent them beautiful diploma certificate of completion. Taking their addresses and locations into consideration, it is an arduous task to connect them with our home churches in other locations, because of the distances and means of transportations that are involved. The entire addresses on the list sent to you are not closer to our home churches and it is just one here and one there etc. Some are in the villages, town and cities that are not the same with our home church locations.
     One good and important thing I have been careful about is that I have and will never direct these souls to the structure of local Adventist churches. In fact, Adventist church here does not have credibility in most minds of Sunday believers. Some have asked me if my ministry is connected with them and I have honestly denied such claims. To date, I have consciously and conscientiously advised our correspondent students to start worshipping God in their own home and endeavor to share their newfound faith with other members of their former church. However, my consolation is found in 2 Tim 2:19 and "Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his"....
     I will not fail to let you know that I am getting the blessings of your intercessory prayers here. The correspondence work is highly increasing due to the ads I am running on the local radio that covers about 5 States in the country. We have received 37 requests for Bible and Health studies just for January this year alone. I am photocopying CDF, MH and binding them in case lots as it is urgently needed for the studies. I am thrilled as I see these precious souls writing for more information on how to study.
     Another good news is that by the time you receive this mail, I would have finished delivering health lectures to the Youth Service Corps (55 souls) that are serving their fatherland. I have been invited to present Lectures on health because they have heard my 15 minutes sponsor program on radio. Praise God. I sincerely solicit your prayers for heavenly wisdom....
     The Bible correspondence school is highly increasing due to the ads I am running on the local radio that covers about 5 States in the country. We have received 108 requests for Bible and Health studies just for month of January and February this year alone. I realize this is more than the number of requests we received for the whole (of) last year. This has never happened in the history of the work here in Nigeria and what is more, it keeps us busy like never before. In the last 2 weeks, we have been waking up around 12 midnight each night to work till 4 AM. Praise God!...I am thrilled as I see these precious souls writing for more information on how to study and live the truth in their lives.
     Our home church members have freely distributed tracts and leaflets (about a thousand plus) far and near. We praised God that only one negative response came from a devout Catholic while others are positive.
     "Every truly converted soul will be intensely desirous to bring others from the darkness of error into the marvelous light of the righteousness of Jesus Christ. The great outpouring of the Spirit of God, which lightens the whole earth with His glory, will not come until we have an enlightened people, that know by experience what it means to be laborers together with God. When we have entire, wholehearted consecration to the service of Christ, God will recognize the fact by an outpouring of His Spirit without measure; but this will not be while the largest portion of the church are not laborers together with God. God cannot pour out His Spirit when selfishness and self-indulgence are so manifest; when a spirit prevails that, if put into words, would express that answer of Cain--'Am I my brother's keeper?'" My Life Today, p 59....
     From the above, you could see why we have allowed the Holy Spirit to map out ways to reach dying and thirsty souls this month. In fact letters are forth coming with new requests for study materials as I write you and means are becoming insufficient for this work. Anyway, this is God’s work, I believe He will see to it. I have no doubt about it.
     Permit me to share a short testimony. I have been praying to the Lord of harvest for quite some time now, as I see His large vineyard calling for laborers and His work increasing. So, the Lord answered my prayers recently when one of the correspondent students, who happen to be a new member of our home church, asked if he could be working together with us. The funds coming to my hands is not enough to cater for this extra worker but I followed the principle of God’’s truth found in John 6:37 and also applied faith in employing him. It is apparent that intelligent, self-denying, self-sacrificing men are now needed,--men who realize the solemnity and importance of God's work, and who as converted Christian will fulfill the commission of Christ. So, I praise God for choosing Brother ____ to act a part in the important work that the Lord has given me to do in this Ministry. And thus I am also praising God for the conviction He has put in you to increase again the funds you are sending to me. God truly knows how He takes care of His work and workers!...
     Praise God! this month has been full of missionary endeavors. First, let me tell you briefly about the Bible and Health correspondence work. We have received 114 requests for this month of March alone, and all have written to be enrolled in health correspondence course. It is mind-boggling! I wish there is time or an extra worker to typeset their letters so that I would be able to send them for you to see for yourself. However, I could photocopy and send them to you by post if you so desired.
     Some of these individuals that have written discussed freely about their health problems, what they could do to alleviate pains, types of herbal remedies we could recommend and wanted to know if we are running a clinic or a Sanitarium they could visit. And truly, if there is ever a time to set up a Sanitarium, I know that this is the right time! I tell you, the world and the Christians out there are fully ripe for our health reform message. This is the time to arise, shine; for our light is come, and the glory of God is risen upon us.
     As you can perceive, we have been extremely busy. As I am writing this report, we are yet to finish replying, photocopying some handouts on health articles and packing useful materials for posting. It is really hard to do other things as the workload looms before us. There have been constant power failure and with just few workers, that continue to wake up in the middle of the night, it is obvious that we could not meet up with the entire requests within this month.
     However, we squeezed time out of the correspondence work for a while, as doors were opened to share what we believed on health reform message and the gospel and why we believed them, with the Editorial board members (2 of them) of the State Radio station that we are on. After the interview as to what we are doing, I have the privilege of showing them some health Slides on the state of health in the world, God's 8 laws of health and the benefits of vegetarianism. At the end they concluded that over 3 millions people in the State need to see and hear our beautiful and inspired messages of truth. They were ready to give me 30 minutes free air time slot, once each week for 13 weeks even on their TV station and not on radio since the presentations involves pictorial aids but on condition that I will remove all scriptural references and will not present the messages in such a way that people will know that they are watching a Christian program. The two visitors said they have to dictate this rules to me because of the rules & regulations given to them by the Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation (NBC). They regrettably told me that this is only applicable if they would need to offer free air time. Further to this, they persuaded me to join the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) because they could influence them to sponsor our messages since they are working together or hand in hand with this organization. I told them that it is not possible for me to do so because we do not believe in the same doctrines. They were disappointed and could not reason with me. They also advised us to have a place where we could treat people that are sick through natural remedies as they are willing to create awareness to what we are doing to the public.
     In addition to the above, we also received four Inspectors from the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). They too have come to know more about our health package. They said that they were motivated to come to us because of the things they have read from the copies of the Ministry of Healing books we have freely distributed to their Youth Corps last month during the health seminars we had with them.
     God is really good to us. He knew this is the very time to make use of Projector machine and have graciously and miraculously supplied our needs. We have been busy with this tool and give God thanks and praises for His providences. There's no doubt about it that the Lord has given us opportunity again to share the truth of the health message with these 4 visitors and we're delighted in sharing with them the subject "How to understand health and disease through God's Plan- 8 laws of health". They were so happy and quickly requested that we enrolled them in our health and Bible correspondence courses. So we gave them "Gospel Workers" Bible lesson study and "Counsels on Diet and Foods" health course and promised them a copy of "Ministry of Healing" book each as soon as we receive the shipment that we are expecting....
     I pray that this mission report finds you well. Extend my best regards to all around you.
     Your Brother in the faith, B.S., Nigeria.

(Combination of 3 letters) Dear brother Bob,
     I wish above all, for you, your family and for your ministry that you may prosper in health and in the knowledge of the Lord's will, grace be unto you all!
     The work of the Lord here in the Philippines is moving forward, in reaching God's children far and wide. About our brethren here we are all right through the grace of Christ. After our camp meeting in ____ last December, our brethren in ____ called and requested me to visit them, so after a week of rest from New Year of 2003 I went there. Thanks to the Lord that even I haven't visited them always they are still strong in the Lord. We did plan for our missionary work to visit our calls for our labor, this church is one of the churches here in ____ who is helping me visiting other brethren so that my burden might be lightened, elders and deacons are doing their work to visit other brethren who are longing for my labors so that my work in entering into new territories will not be hindered.
     After I've been in ____ we proceeded to ____ to continue the work there, which we have left when I attended the camp meeting. We stayed long in ____ because work has been opened there. We visited the SDA members and have explained to them about the present truth and why we should and must come out from the SDA organization. Some have expressed their willingness to study still, but some have expressed their prejudiced in the messages. We have given the message to the group of Adventist, who are very open to the message. I have given them after our study the booklet about "THE WCC AND THE SDA" and the "PROTESTANT HISTORY". I'm very thankful to the Lord that He sent helped and encourages us to move forward in the field, a brother who is my companion dreamed a verse in the Bible that gave us courage to continue working there for them. It's found in Isaiah. 51:7.
     Then after a days we crossed islands to proceed to our new established church in ____, and we held the Sabbath with them. Sunday, we moved to ____ again and we traveled by boat, you know bro Bob, this is my most dangerous travel I've ever had because I experienced three times that our boat was about to sink, big waves are upon us one after another. I cannot breath properly because by stomach was getting cramp, I cried unto the Lord for His help and you know, if God did not send his angels to protect us, may be we are now dead. Tears from my eyes came out while whispering the Lord's promises in my mind. When I started traveling for missionary since 1994 and experienced lots of travels, this is the most perilous experience I ever had. Thanks to the Lord for His ever protecting care for us all!
     After the work in ____ I came back again in ____ to attend the gathering of our brethren. We are so much blessed. So each of our brethren have given their testimonies on what the Lord has done for them. We saw our brethren again which we do not see for a long time but still strong in the faith. We will be going back again in ____ after this Sabbath because our work there was extended to ____ (another island). May the Lord bless those places, which we are working for the up building of His kingdom, specially the teacher who was their elder in the church and a laymen, who are listening in the message in the main area.

     As I observe the world-today I can say that we are not far in the end as calamities by land and by sea is frequently happening one after another and if the Lord's protection is not in us we will be swept away by Satan's harvest. So I praise the Lord for He did not leave us unprotected....
     The Lord blessed us, new field was opened for the truth and that place is in ____ City, one family of a long time backslide SDA with his Catholic wife and some others accepted the present truth. I was with them this last Sabbath of February and they have expressed their gratefulness and appreciation upon our visit with them and have said that they want us to continue visiting them. I saw their willingness to know truths, which was concealed to them by the pastors especially by the priest because his wife is a devoted Catholic. She has graven images and altar in their house. She was surprised in the Bible truths, which she heard, and with eager inquiry asks us why did the priest left them ignorant of these truths or if the priest know these truths. We are praying that may the Lord bless this couple with some others, in fact he is thinking if God will give him chance he will invite me to share the truths he have heard to his friends too....

(Combination of 3 letters) Dear bro. Bob,
     3 John 2.
     Hi! I praise and thank the Lord for giving us another year to be used in serving Him and for having been so good to us for the last year. God is truly great and wonderful! And I also want to extend my big gratitude to you and to your ministry for all the help and support that you've given, not only to me but to the cause of God in the whole world. As we face another year may God find us more earnest and faithful to labor for His cause. And may He continue to bless us spiritually....
     We just came back from our fellowship. Thank God that we've seen again our brethren who came from other places, and it was such a happy moments to see them and it really gives strength to each one of us. I want to thank the Lord that during the Sabbath, I was given a chance and opportunity to speak and share studies, most especially focusing on our youth. We have a lot of youth here now, and they need to be guided by the word of God and those of men of experience so that they will not make any decision in the future that will mar their lives and happiness.
     You know, Bro Bob, I have so much to write to about my work here, but I wasn't able to write it to you since my computer was not working. From the past few months, we've been distributing tracts here in our place especially to those crowded areas. Though we did not see any response now from them, I am hoping and praying that someday soon the seeds that has been sown will spring and grow in their hearts. Also the Lord opens the way for me to share to a lady about the position that we are standing. She's very interested to listen especially about the Sabbath. She's asking me on how do I keep the Sabbath, what time it begin and end, and what are the things we do during Sabbath. She continued on asking on what church do I belong. And through the guidance of the Holy Spirit I explained to her and answer all her questions.  We also tackled the health reform especially vegetarianism. I am praying that this lady will open up her mind and will continue to seek for the truth.
     I did receive the information about the present trials that came to our dear brethren in the faith about the situation of their child. The Lord only who really knows the best and good for us and why He allows such things to come. But we already know that whatever trials come to us He tells us that His grace is sufficient for us to face it. They are really included in our prayers. We believe in faith that God will not forget His faithful followers especially during times of trials and temptation....
     I have already finished the translation of the booklet entitled "God's True Church". And it follows after this letter. I am so impressed and encouraged about the study in this booklet....
     Till here for now. May our Lord continue to guide, help and bless us in our work especially in this last days of earth's history. May God give us grace and strength to faithfully follow Him. God bless you, your ministry and your family as well!
     S.B., Philippines.

     During our studies, the gospel order lesson came up...--the issue which has been buried in Namibia for many years. We praised God that this was the right time for the issue to be considered by the Namibian brethren at that time in full practice. I praise God that we had good lessons presented by the brethren from ALL the three Countries which met. Finally we had our Lord's Supper on the last day and we SAW WHY WE WERE ALL CALLED TO MEET AT (THAT) PLACE. When we came back to Namibia, the brethren saw it important that it was the very time and opportunity to have this church organization. And ministers, church elders, deacons deaconess, church treasurer were elected and ____ and I witnessed this and the ordinations. We praise God that all in leadership in Namibian home churches was set by the grace of God....I praise God for this great work and all the massages we received cause this has caused a lot of christian changes in us.
