     "There are many precious truths contained in the Word of God, but it is 'PRESENT TRUTH' that the flock needs now." Early Writings, p 63.

     Education in health principles was never more needed than now. Notwithstanding the wonderful progress in so many lines relating to the comforts and conveniences of life, and even in the treatment of disease, the decline in physical vigor and power of endurance is alarming. It demands the attention of all who have at heart their well-being and also that of their fellow men.
     Seven out of every ten diseases are life-style related.  Everything we do, or choose not to do, will either bring us health or disease.  And what makes it worse, is that when we do get sick, many will not take the trouble to search out the cause of their illness. Their chief anxiety is to rid themselves of the pain and inconvenience. So they go to the doctor for some pill to counteract the result of their misdoing, with little or no thought of making a change in their unhealthful habits. If immediate benefit is not realized, another medicine is tried, and then another.
     Our artificial civilization is encouraging evils destructive of sound principles. Most are only concerned with their outward appearance instead of being concerned about the internal health of their body.  Intemperance and crime, disease and wretchedness, are everywhere.  Many transgress the laws of health through ignorance, and they need instruction. But the greater number should know better. They need to be impressed with the importance of making their knowledge a guide of life.

     The best way to help solve this problem is to educate the people in right health principles. People need to be taught that restorative and healing power is to be found in nature. Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system.
     The simple healing principles of nature are found in pure air, sunlight, temperance, rest, exercise, proper diet and nutrition, the use of water, trust in divine power--these are the true remedies. (For specific information on each one of these 8 laws of health, please click here.)  Every person should have a knowledge of nature's remedial agencies and how to apply them. It is essential both to understand the principles involved in the treatment of the sick and to have a practical training that will enable one rightly to use this knowledge.
     But the use of natural remedies requires an amount of care and effort that many are not willing to give. Nature's process of healing and upbuilding is gradual, and to the impatient it seems slow. The surrender of hurtful indulgences requires sacrifice. But in the end it will be found that nature, untrammeled, does her work wisely and well. Those who persevere in obedience to her laws will reap the reward in health of body and health of mind.
     Too little attention is generally given to the preservation of health. It is far better to prevent disease than to know how to treat it when contracted. It is the duty of every person, for his own sake, and for the sake of humanity, to inform himself in regard to the laws of life and conscientiously to obey them. All need to become acquainted with that most wonderful of all organisms, the human body. They should understand the functions of the various organs and the dependence of one upon another for the healthy action of all. They should study the influence of the mind upon the body, and of the body upon the mind, and the laws by which they are governed.

     We cannot be too often reminded that health does not depend on chance. It is a result of obedience to law. This is recognized by the contestants in athletic games and trials of strength. These men make the most careful preparation. They submit to thorough training and strict discipline. Every physical habit is carefully regulated. They know that neglect, excess, or carelessness, which weakens or cripples any organ or function of the body, would ensure defeat.
     How much more important is such carefulness to ensure success in the conflict of life. It is not mimic battles in which we are engaged. We are waging a warfare upon which hang eternal results. We have unseen enemies to meet. Evil angels are striving for the dominion of every human being. Whatever injures the health, not only lessens physical vigor, but tends to weaken the mental and moral powers. Indulgence in any unhealthful practice makes it more difficult for one to discriminate between right and wrong, and hence more difficult to resist evil. It increases the danger of failure and defeat.

     Often prayer is solicited for the afflicted, the sorrowful, the discouraged; and this is right. We should pray that God will shed light into the darkened mind and comfort the sorrowful heart. But God answers prayer for those who place themselves in the channel of His blessings. While we offer prayer for these sorrowful ones, we should encourage them to try to help those more needy than themselves. The darkness will be dispelled from their own hearts as they try to help others. As we seek to comfort others with the comfort  wherewith we are comforted, the blessing comes back to us.
     Let the sick, and especially those laid up at home or in the hospital, instead of constantly requiring sympathy, seek to impart it. Let the burden of your own weakness and sorrow and pain be cast upon the compassionate Saviour. Open your heart to His love, and let it flow out to others. Remember that all have trials hard to bear, temptations hard to resist, and you may do something to lighten these burdens. Express gratitude for the blessings you have; show appreciation of the attentions you receive. Keep the heart full of the precious promises of God, that you may bring forth from this treasure, words that will be a comfort and strength to others. This will surround you with an atmosphere that will be helpful and uplifting. Let it be your aim to bless those around you, and you will find ways of being helpful, both to the members of your own family and to others.
     Good deeds are twice a blessing, benefitting both the giver and the receiver of the kindness. The consciousness of  right_doing is one of the best medicines for diseased bodies and minds. When the mind is free and happy from a sense of duty well done and the satisfaction of giving happiness to others, the cheering, uplifting influence brings new life to the whole being.
     If your mind may be clouded because of pain, then do not try to think. You know that Jesus loves you. He understands your weakness. You may do His will by simply resting in His arms.  And remember, song is a weapon that we can always use against temptation and discouragement. As we thus open the heart to the sunlight of the Saviour's presence, we shall have health and His blessing.
     "Give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy." Psalms 107:1-2.

     "Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord." Psalms 105:2-3.

     "For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron . . .They cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!" Psalms 107:9-15.

     It is a fact that our thoughts and feelings cause the body to release chemicals that influence our whole being–whether for good or ill.  It is also a fact that our thoughts and feelings are encouraged and strengthened as we give them utterance. While words express thoughts, it is also true that thoughts follow words. If we would give more expression to our faith, rejoice more in the blessings that we know we have,--the great mercy and love of God,--we should have more faith and greater joy. No tongue can express, no finite mind can conceive, the blessing that results from appreciating the goodness and love of God. Even on earth we may have joy as a wellspring, never failing, because fed by the streams that flow from the throne of God.
     Then let us educate our hearts and lips to speak the praise of God for His matchless love. Let us educate our souls to be hopeful and to abide in the light shining from the cross of Calvary. Never should we forget that we are children of the heavenly King, sons and daughters of the Lord of hosts. It is our privilege to maintain a calm repose in God.
     "Let the peace of God rule in your hearts...and be ye thankful." Colossians 3:15. Forgetting our own difficulties and troubles, let us praise God for an opportunity to live for the glory of His name. Let the fresh blessings of each new day awaken praise in our hearts for these tokens of His loving care. When you open your eyes in the morning, thank God that He has kept you through the night. Thank Him for His peace in your heart. Morning, noon, and night, let gratitude as a sweet perfume ascend to heaven.
     When someone asks how you are feeling, do not try to think of something mournful to tell in order to gain sympathy. Do not talk of your lack of faith and your sorrows and sufferings. The tempter delights to hear such words. When talking on gloomy subjects, you are glorifying him. We are not to dwell on the great power of Satan to overcome us. Often we give ourselves into his hands by talking of his power. Let us talk instead of the great power of God to bind up all our interests with His own. Tell of the matchless power of Christ, and speak of His glory. All heaven is interested in our salvation. The angels of God, thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand, are  commissioned to minister to those who shall be heirs of salvation. They guard us against evil and press back the powers of darkness that are seeking our destruction. Have we not reason to be thankful every moment, thankful even when there are apparent difficulties in our pathway?

     Let it be made plain that the way of God's commandments is the way of life. God has established the laws of nature, but His laws are not arbitrary exactions. Every "Thou shalt not," whether in physical or in moral law, implies a promise. If we obey it, blessing will attend our steps. God never forces us to do right, but He seeks to save us from the evil and lead us to the good.
     God has made known to us the laws relating to both our physical and spiritual well-being; and on condition of obedience He assures us that He, "will take away from thee all sickness." Deuteronomy 7:15. "Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day." "For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh." Deuteronomy 32:46; Proverbs 4:22.
     God desires us to reach the standard of perfection made possible for us by the gift of Christ. He calls upon us to make our choice on the right side, to connect with heavenly agencies, to adopt principles that will restore in us the divine image. In His written word and in the great book of nature He has revealed of the principles of life. It is our work to obtain a knowledge of these principles, and by obedience to co-operate with Him in restoring health to the body as well as to the soul.
     The knowledge that man is to be a temple for God, a habitation for the revealing of His glory, should be the highest incentive to the care and development of our physical powers. Fearfully and wonderfully has the Creator wrought in the human frame, and He bids us make it our study, understand its needs, and act our part in preserving it from harm and defilement.
     Our bodies are Christ's purchased possession, and we are not at liberty to do with them as we please. All who understand the laws of health should realize their obligation to obey these laws which God has established in their being. Obedience to the laws of health is to be made a matter of personal duty. We ourselves must suffer the results of violated law.

     We must individually answer to God for our habits and practices. Therefore the question with us is not, "What is the world's practice?" but, "How shall I as an individual treat the habitation that God has given me?"
     The body is the only medium through which the mind and the soul are developed for the upbuilding of character. Hence it is that the adversary of souls directs his temptations to the enfeebling and degrading of the physical powers. His success here means the surrender to evil of the whole being.
     The tendencies of our physical nature, unless under the dominion of a higher power, will surely work ruin and death.  The body is to be brought into subjection. The higher powers of the being are to rule. The passions are to be controlled by the will, which is itself to be under the control of God. The kingly power of reason, sanctified by divine grace, is to bear sway in our lives.
     The requirements of God must be brought home to the conscience. Men and women must be awakened to the duty of self-mastery, the need of purity, freedom from every depraving appetite and defiling habit. They need to be impressed with the fact that all their powers of mind and body are the gift of God, and are to be preserved in the best possible condition for His service.
     In the ancient sacrificial system, which was the gospel in symbol, no blemished offering could be brought to God's altar. The sacrifice that was to represent Christ must be spotless. The word of God points to this as an illustration of what His children are to be--"a living sacrifice," which is "holy and without blemish," and thus is “acceptable unto God”. Romans 12:1; Ephesians 5:27.

     Apart from divine power, no genuine reform can be effected. Human barriers against natural and cultivated tendencies are but as the sandbank against the torrent. Not until the life of Christ becomes a vitalizing power in our lives can we resist the temptations that assail us from within and from without.
     Christ came to this world and lived the law of God, that man might have perfect mastery over the natural inclinations which corrupt the soul. As the Physician of soul and body, He gives victory over warring lusts. He has provided every facility, that man may possess completeness of health and of character.

     The fifty-eighth chapter of Isaiah is a prescription for maladies of the body and of the soul. If we desire health and the true joy of life we must put into practice the rules given in this scripture. Of the service acceptable to Him, and its blessings, the Lord says:
     "Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rearward. Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not." Isaiah 58:7-11.

     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.

     TO OUR SUPPORTERS: Please know that you have played an important part in helping "Let There Be Light" Ministries spread the Present Truth into various parts of this world, through the printed page, through the living full-time workers and ministers we sponsor, and through the internet.  This is how the Loud Cry of the third angel will be spread, and is now being spread!  If the Lord impresses you to help in these endeavors, your donations and prayers will be greatly appreciated, and not just by this Ministry.  MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU!


     "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; holding 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.

     Whew!  I just read the Abomination of Desolation article!  And "Wow" my brother.  Every word is just so.  If someone doesn't believe it, just look at the footnotes and documentation!
     But so many folks can't/don't/won't read information like this.  I suppose it is too upsetting to see that "the church" could make a mistake.  It is just much more comfortable to slide along letting the "leaders" give you the false confidence that Satanic "unconditional love" brings.
     Thank you SOOOOOOO much for upholding the old time truth.  Here in Los Angeles the "faithful" are far and few between.  It is much more fashionable to just fit in.  Don't ask any straight questions -- just sit quietly, love the brethren, say "happy Sabbath" and trust the "pastor" {Why, he has been to the seminary.  Surely he knows all about theology and would not present falsehood}.
     Oh, my dear brother Robert, we are so very near THE END and Laodicean eyes are so shut -- hypnotized and sedated!
     I do thank you for this article and much more on this site.  I will share it with those that would even dare to look!  It would be so painful that many members I know could not stand to read this article.  They would be in complete denial -- even if they could see the truth in print.
     In recent times, I was in CONTENTION with a false shepherd (local pastor) concerning the very basic belief that KJV IS God's perfect word.  Now, after "the war" is over, the KJV stands impregnable!  He is out of the ministry and gone.  The heavenly Father and CRYSTAL CLEAR TRUTH prevailed!!!!

     Continuing to keep your family, you, & most importantly the Ministry in prayer.
     God bless you, L.K., FL.

Dear bro Sessler,
     Enclosed, please find my humble donation to your untiring gospel Ministry.  Thank you for your timely messages on your Let There Be Light Newsletter.  The flock need to be fed prior to the "end-time" so we will be safe and secure in the Lord's hand.
     Lovingly, L.D., Canada.

Dear Mr. Robert Sessler, a servant of truth as I discover in the first book I've read "The Abomination of Desolation and Church History".
     I praise the Lord and thank Him for your serving, for sending me that book, for sending me the next book or books which you consider I need to read and reflect upon....
     After finding to read your book you sent, about a month ago, since for me to read is to study - (I'm not an English speaker), I decided to separate (from) the Adventist church and come closer to the truth -- which is the Lord Himself, and be thus added to the Remnant.  (Editor's Note: May God be praised for the stand you have willingly taken for Him!)
     I need your prayers as a group.  So far I am alone here -- earthly speaking -- for actually I am with Jesus and this is all I need!!!  I praise God!!!...I love to read English, I need the truth, only!
     May God reward your efforts and may we, the few, of (the) Remnant see each other -- soon!
     With thanks, with lots of thanks, a thirsty one, S.A., Romania.

Dear bro. Sessler,
     I just want to thank you for crying loud and sparing not.
     My friend and I listen to your sermons on Sabbath.  It's just the two of us, but I tell you we are truly being blessed by the truth.
     Please know that you are in our prayers!
     Your sister in Christ, J.B., FL.



(Combination of 2 letters) May I take this opportunity to send you my report. Forgive me for the delay as I was down again seriously sick; I hope you will understand. I am better now...
     We are giving the message of coming out from sin and sinners and we are quite busy with it right now.
     Giving out of tracts is still going on and house to house visitation...
     I have visited a member of our church who's staying far away; she is alright and she is very strong. I now begin to visit some old friends bringing them over with my message, since I got sick I have never visited this church members....
     The story of how the 11th hour excepting the message of coming out is still a lot to be desired, they said they agreed with the message, but they still as they were.
     I am walking around with a walking stick now and giving our tracks with my grandson at the Bus Stand and the populated areas in ____....
     I have been trying very hard to get well, but somewhere on the line the devil does not like it.  Every time I get better, I get into some sort of accident; which I fell and twisted my knee.  Please!! can you pray for me? (Editor's Note: We sure will, and keep looking up, and do not become discouraged.)  Thank you very much.
     Your Brother in Christ, A.V., Fiji.


     I wish you and all of your helpers a blessed New year. It is my prayer that God shall enlighten and lead you to accomplish His purpose for your lives ordained in the eternal council.
     For several months late last year I got too busy and away from network that I have got missed correspondence from many of my friends. But in it all I praise God in Jesus our Saviour for the immeasurable blessings and joy in the Spirit that He has bestowed on me in His service.
     I praise Him that I have been enabled to learn from and copy my Lord Jesus our Great Exemplar who followed His Father in all things. ”...the son of God was surrendered to the Father’s will and dependent upon His power. So utterly was Christ emptied of self that He made no plans for Himself. He accepted God’s plans for Him and day by day the Father unfolded His plans. So should we depend upon God that our lives may be the simple outworking of His will.” DA 208. I know this should be the greatest lesson for all who wish to be co-workers with God in this final message. The sooner His Remnants learn this lesson perfectly then the message shall swell into powerful loud cry and be cut short in righteousness. I have adapted this principle in my service since last year and I have witnessed a great change and blessing. My heart is at rest daily as I see God lead me to souls who are readied by His Spirit. Herein is joy, unspeakable joy! The secret of easy yoke and light burden. Hallelujah
     In the Lord., P.M., Kenya.

Dear Robert,
     General christian greetings in Jesus' name. I hope the Lord is sustaining His work well with you over there.
     I apologize greatly for all such a delay to give the report of the old year's end. As I had been telling you the year started badly with wars, strives and even separations, but it ended peacefully with reconciliation and unity with new and old friends from the SDA Reform Movements who like us are tired of the false cry of peace and safety (and) that the SDA churches do not compose Babylon, (which is) a message from Independent Ministries, like Hope International, Advent Hope, and others.
     On December we had two consecutive meetings which were of great help. One was a camp at ____ where brothers ____ taught Church History, ____ Stewardship, ____ the Gospel, ____ Prophecy, and I took Family Religion....
     The other was a Youth Seminar at ____ from 26th (December) - 1st Jan 06. In this Seminar Brothers ____ took Prophecy, ____ Health, ____ Counsels to Youths on Marriage, ____ Education, ____ the Gospel, and I took Church History. This was one of the wonderful joint meetings we have ever had since we united in August. The meeting ended with much blessings.
     Today we are having a meeting to arranged work for this whole year. We hope God will help us accomplish our duties.
     B.N., Kenya.

(Combination of 2 letters) Dear brother Robert,
     Receive greetings from ____ including that of ____.
     In ____ I worked there for 3 weeks and great a awakening was seen, and at last two men from S.D.A. join the centre. These men will create a great influence in the centre. To many whom I talked to they would like to see a shade (small building to worship in) so that they can believe that what we are saying is serious. But (the problem is) money, we don't have (any) to construct a shade.

Thank for your support (that) I do receive, it is helping me a bit to reach people, ____ nowadays life (cost of living) is very high. I need more prayer from you so as to stand firm, my enemies are many....(Editor's Note: We are keeping you in our prayers, and remember that greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world).
     Last year December to January, I took 3 weeks tracking up and down in the parts of ____. This work God blessed it and four men joined the church there. The number was to be about ten grown up who were to join, but others claimed that they had no clothes. Brother may you know that these brothers and sisters they usually used to wear or covering their bodies with sheets but not clothes. The people are cattle keeper, and because of the drought which has affected Kenya, they were the most stricken. My request for these people and ____ centre is they need a help.
     I am planning through Christ's name to take a group to conduct (an) Effort of 2 weeks in ____, would the ministry help us conduct the Effort and feeding program? May you let me know. After the effort we will conduct Baptism and ordinations of leaders of that centre. The centre had stayed for 7 months without a leader, the one I took there whom I was paying misbehaved and ran away.
     In Nairobi, the team which I told you who joined my centre, together we are doing a good work. We are doing house to house work, soon great change is going to be experienced in ____. Beside that, a number of children have come to our church who need to be assisted, they are from poor families, orphans, maimed. The church arranged and started giving them education and feeding programe. May you Elder put our request to sisters and brothers in faith not forgetting well wishers to help. These children need a home. They need a devoted God-guided and fearing persons to guide them. (Editor's Note: Praise God and amen.  May all who are reading this ask God if He would have them contribute financially to help them to continue this worthy endeavor of helping these poor children.)
     May you Elder help us how to approach these beside sending volunteers who can teach and conduct these young ones into the law and into the testimony.
     Yours 11th Hour Servant, B.S., Kenya.

(Combination of 3 letters) Praise be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. To this end we can, with satisfaction, say, Ebenezer! We have turned to another year yet again; another year has entered into eternal records with its burden of success, dangers and failures. We would (ask), and humbly so in Jesus’ blessed name, that our records have been cleansed and sanctified through the efficacious blood of Jesus, to remain for a memorial in eternal ages of the good the Lord has done us this past year.
     A better end is more blessed than a good beginning. Though the year began with problems affecting ministry in many aspects here, yet we can now say again, God is good, and great to be praised for ever more. All our planned camp meetings, and arousement efforts (though fewer) were accomplished to the praise of God. We appreciate all the support that brethren over there have given to our ministering brethren in catering for their travelling and upkeep. It would otherwise have been more difficult without it. We here wish to express our sincere appreciation of their self-sacrifice and denial for our good this side of the wide field. God bless you abundantly.
     Misfortunes turn blessings in disguise. Our brother ____ (at) home accident proved a blessing as it drew hearts more closer to help than before. Praise be to God. That God would draw us closer and closer to Himself and to one another is our prayer.
     Together with brother ____ of ____, greater coverage is being done in reaching out (to) souls...Praise be to God. The circulation of God’s True Church is also proving an effective tool in the ingathering. Glory be to God. How great shall be the harvest God knows! May God help us all, and all our supporters in particular, that we relent not in the short remaining respite moments.
     In our last camp meeting at ____ from December 18th through 25th greater achievements were reached. The need for greater consecration to God, personal labor for souls, support of the work and carefulness in Sabbath observance were there dealt with in depth. At the end of it, there were heartfelt confessions on failures, omissions and commissions done in the past. We look forward to many openings from this meeting, with God’s grace.
     In closing up the year, we have had a successful Youth Bible Retreat at ____. It was the most challenging, soul uplifting and full of encouragement. Brothers ____, ____, ____ & ____, ____ and myself attended. At the end of it all, the call to greater consecration and personal labor, shortness of time, greater devotion, home religion and encouraging the youth to participate in soul winning activities were dwelt upon in depth. This meeting drew together the largest number of full families, youth and the elderly that had attended the cause in the early days of Adventism. Praise be to God. We look forward to God helping the youth taking their positions in this last work. (Editor's Note: AMEN!)
     In our future prospects for the year and beyond, we hope to see closer union among believers. We hope and pray that God might fulfill His promises to open our eyes to see our common enemy that even the backslidden might be won back to the fold of truth and “Follow the great Shepherd. The people will draw together and present to the enemy a united front. In view of the common peril, strife for supremacy will cease.” 6T 401. We there also saw the need to commit our souls more to the truth and its proclamation, cooperating with only such ministries that are committed to this present truth, and that “no one of the believers will say, ‘I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas’.” We look forward to the time when “The testimony of one and all will be, ‘I cleave unto Christ; I rejoice in Him as my personal Saviour.” Ibid. In this regard, we were impressed to urge upon all our brothers to greater personal consecration to Christ because, “the nearer the soul comes to God, the more completely is it humbled and subdued….He who contemplates God’s glory and infinite love, will have humble views of himself, but by beholding the character of God, he will be changed into His divine image.” TKH 175.
     We commit all things unto our heavenly Father through the blessed name of Jesus, to endorse, withhold or cancel according to His divine will, wisdom and love. We however solicit support of all our brethren in the holy faith in prayer and physical material to help us meet our obligations to reach souls in the darkness beyond. In this regard therefore, we would urge our brethren to consider sending more tracts and booklets; greater funding in sustaining outreach meetings that the lesser entered places may effectively be reached. Secondly Kenyans are now suffering from crop failure making it even more difficult to operate; ____ is specially singled out, (and) in this regard that it my receive attention of our brethren. We are hopeful God will do something in this direction. As David, we also encourage ourselves “in the Lord his God.” 1 Sam 29:6.
     “God knows it is good for men to tread a hard and humble path, to encounter difficulties, to experience disappointments, and suffer affliction. Faith strengthens by coming in conflicts with doubt, and resisting unbelief through the strength of Jesus.” 1ST, p 35, 1876.
     And so it is to the advantage of the church to share in easing the necessities of brethren. 2 Cor. 8:2,8....
     Sorry for the attack (of the devil and his agents against the Ministry and your family). Praise be to God that you (are) well all the same....
     We have been in an evangelistic effort the last two weeks. Right now am coming from house to house visitation.
     God is blessing the work as He is bringing His own unity among brethren. Remember this work much in your prayers. Catholics attempted to attack us, but God confounded their plans before they could mature. He (the devil is) indeed is wroth with remnant of the woman. However we are doing all these with no little strain financially. Looks like the devil is biting hard on our situation here....
     We are just from an evangelistic outreach effort, lasting two weeks. Inspite of all the opposition from the main church, the Lord blessed the meeting with protection. Brother ____ will remain there to see what arrangements will follow. This is the very place where our brothers ____ and ____ were beaten and our PAS taken away. Thank God the common people received us well even in their homes as we were going from house to house visitations.
     Unfortunately however, brother ____ arrived home to see his daughter die shortly afterwards. (Editor's Note: he and his family are indeed in our thoughts and prayers.) So sad, but I believe our Father knew it all and had everything to His own will. I will be there tomorrow.
     Brother ____ from Tanzania came over here two weeks ago. He met us, gave his experience and aspirations. He is interested in translating booklets into Kiswahili, but lacks funding. We gave him the materials we had at hand. He says Tanzania is opening to the message. He extended invitation to us to visit him there. We are having it in prayers, you too, can join us, that God may open the ways. He requested for any possible support to enable him accomplish the work. We sent him to Nairobi to meet Bro. ____ for more materials. They met and ____ will be visiting him soon to verify this need, and what can possibly be done.
     This ____ through ____, we shall have a workers' study instead of the usual camp at ____. Our prayers are that God (will) help us to be united for this (message can) go faster. Thank you for your continued prayers for the work this side of the globe.
     Lastly we made request for Study Bibles for our other co-workers who have none. Our prayers are that God might provide all that it will take to take this message faster and to all places. All other materials needed.
     God bless you abundantly, B.I., Kenya.

Dear Bob,
     Happy new year. This is the 20th year since the Ministry of Let There Be Light was dedicated to the preaching of the whole message of present truth. I pray for the Ministry so that our Father may help it mature in the work which we accepted to undertake, and let us all who are in touch with it know that we are not spiritual teens but we should be mature, not teenagers, spiritually. The Camp which was at ____ which started on 18th to 25th December 2005 and the Youth Congress which also was at ____ which ended yesterday showed that the work at this stage needs people who are mature. Because the condition of things tells that everything has reached it's mature stage. So let us get ready to receive new responsibilities.
     "Let us draw nearer and nearer to the pure light of heaven, remembering that divine illumination will increase according to our onward movements, qualifying us to meet new responsibilities and emergencies. The path of the just is progressive and from strength to strength, from grace to grace and from glory to glory." ST, June 23, 1887 - IHP 105.
     To report about Medical Missionary work: Enema - 1 person; Low Back Pain - 2, Comfort and Counseling - 3.
     Please thanks for the booklets which you sent (exposing) Sunday Worship - Twelve Reasons Given. I have received them and they are on circulating.
     May God bless His work and yours in His service.
     P.N., Kenya.

Dear elder Bob,
     Sorry beloved brother for what (has and is still) happened to you. The enemies of God are laying plan daily to destroy God's people, day by day we are beset by satanic agencies, ready to destroy us. Oh friend we would say as Psalmist says, "If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us". Surely this world is ripe for destruction. Ecclesiastes 8:11, is fulfilling before our very eyes (and) the times in which we live are times of great depravity and crime of every degree.
     Even in this country (Kenya), everywhere there is no safety, everywhere is filled with iniquity and crime. The daily papers are full of terrible scenes taking place, political corruption is at the top, murders of every grade is seen everywhere. Surely the end of all things is at hand, very soon the "Earth....shall disclosed her blood, and no more cover her slain" -(Isaiah 26:21).
     Elder Bob, since the beginning of this year, I have seen the hand of God working mighty for us. God is constantly working to bring souls from the error of their ways to the light. Last month of Feb., we had two weeks Effort meeting: in that meeting the Lord gave us strength to speak the word with power and in love, but nevertheless the enemy was not asleep. He stirred up the Catholics and the sin loving multitudes through the S.D.A.'s, but we thank God for His protecting care was upon us. Out of that meeting some gave themselves to the Lord and converted to keep the Sabbath and to walk with God's people in the narrow path. We are preparing also for another two weeks Effort meeting as from 11th March. We request for your prayers, that God may open the heart of some to receive the truth and that His protecting care be upon His people that we may speak the truth with power. God love you.
     Thank you, S.N., Kenya.


(Combination of 2 letters) Christian greetings from Papua New Guinea.
     Thot for today: "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Rev 18:4.
     Two weeks before I heading for ____ evangelism, we do the street preaching in our little home town of ____.  Program begins on the 24th Feb - Mar 3rd, we displayed the prophecy sheet of Rev 12 & 17 on the crowded street with our written theme: "COME OUT OF BABYLON".
     We thank God for He is in control.  His wonderful message attracted all classes of people and put them down on the dusty floor of busy street as (the) message of straight testimony reach their hearts.  Six selective topics of separation message we presented every lunch hour a day.
     This end-time and distinctive subjects bring the great healing to the souls of attentive listeners on the street.  Bible prophecy challenged God's wonderful images from the system of Catholic and her daughters to come out from Babylonian system without delay before sealing angels cease their work.  (The) message direct all the people back to God's original 7th day Sabbath.  People realized where the mistakes are, and many souls were blessed as Holy Spirit directs them to know the present truth.
     The two final messages we direct and pointing the heart of (the) Seventh-day Adventist's (to their) apostate systems currently being influenced and practicing by their blind leaders all over.  We all know that today its not a time to cry peace and safety.  With the guardians (protection) of the Holy Spirit, without being fear (afraid), we revealed all the Babylonian practices done in the midst of...(SDA) church, such as: walk on the knees 5 to 10 metres for bowing and silent prayer in front of crucifixion image of Christ for forgiveness...
     Another incident occurred this year which aroused the minds of many Conf-Adventists and positioning them on their toes.  She (SDA church) compromised with State and World Council of Churches by receiving the overseas Aid funds through PNG government.  The report released through our National News Paper.  I was using that news as proof to SDA leaders and members as a sign of compromised with Babylon system and we warned them to come out.  More people who were listening nodded their heads as a sign of saying its very true.
     Seventh-day Adventists run schools throughout the country amalgamate with the National Education System by signing a Memorandum of Understanding between State and the Church.  Adventist students and parents were panic as media released in news nation-wide on the end of February 2006...
     After the end of our message, we announced in public and directing them (to) the site where we (are) going (to) begin our Sabbath worship.  We've been struggling to establish the town church for many years until God answered our prayers by providing a building, and this is our 3rd Sabbath in town....(Editor's Note: May God be praised!)
     I came in ____ since last week.  I'm intend to remain here for next 6 weeks running outreach and revival meetings, training lay preachers and organizing the home church.  But I am not settled well, still struggling for my accommodation....
     After emphasizing more on the literature work and encouraging the youths in Sabbath School last week, the Holy Spirit impressed their minds to action, so without delay on the next day, 6 children between the age of 7-10, with 2 young laymen, started distributing the booklets titled "Image of the Beast" and "The True Church of God", from door to door.  Boys choosed the section where the high classes of people residing.  They begin from one end to the finishing end in the city.  3 boxes of booklets I posted, having sea-mailed 2 weeks earlier before I came.  I really happy and thank the Lord for the great job (the) boys had done.  This is the only way to bring the written truth at the door of the busiest people.  Different classes of people really appreciated and accept the truth-filled booklets when (the) boys stepped in and knocked at their doors and gates.  Dog chased the boys away from some homes, while security guards allow them not to enter in some residents, so what boys did was they leave some booklets with the guards telling them to share with the house holders.  They beginning the job at 9:00 am until the 3 boxes of booklets finished at 3:00 pm. (Editors note: praise God for their dedication, and may He multiply these good efforts with an abundant harvest!)
     Please! forget not to upholding the work here in ____ and PNG in your daily prayers, and other means as you do the same to others around the world for spreading this sound truth around (to) needy souls....
     Thank you very much, and may God bless you in His service.
     K.T., Papua New Guinea.


(Combination of three letters) Dear Bro. Bob,
     I pray that our God will keep you healthy and strong so can continue to serve Him....
     I'm glad that the Adventist couple that I've been sharing the present truth with in a nearby city here in our region attended our last fellowship. I pray that they may continue to embrace the truth for this time.
     There is also another couple who offered their service to sell our books. They are also interested to attend Sabbath worship and for Bible studies. I do hope that they will also be converted, really converted not just for practical reasons but for the love of the truth as it is in Jesus.
     Regarding the newly converted brethren in ____, they are doing fine by God's grace. I will be there hopefully this week. They have been asking me to go there since October, but I still had to attend to a lot of things specially the printing of the books.
     I thank your ministry for the support you have given me in the past year. I pray that the Lord will ever bless you so you can continue to extend your means to God's servants like me....
     I am very sorry that this report was sent too late. I am thankful to God that He gave me this ample time to send this to you today. I wish and pray that God’s grace is ever with you as you continue to advance the cause of present truth....
     I have been in ____ last month to answer the request of our brethren, an urgent call to visit them. There was a group of the Davidians who visited our brethren there and who were insisting that Houteff was the next prophet after Sister White’s death and if I have not yet taught it to the brethren (then) our message is still lacking. I remember when Paul says that after he departs shall grievous wolves enter among them not sparing the flock, but will draw disciples after them. This was the exact thing happened there. Some of the brethren were confused, but in God’s help and by granting us His grace they were all ok now and the plan of the enemy was thwarted.
     Also here in ____, we were experiencing the same thing. While I was in other area having a missionary work, there was also a new brother here in ____ who taught that we as believers of present truth must remove our shoes when entering the house of worship. There were many new listeners and new brethren, who were the fruits of our labors, (and they) were affected. The old brethren sent me a message regarding the news. That is why if you remember my last letter to you that we are presently working to establish the colporteur ministry, this work was again hindered because of this problem. I was burdened with the issue because a brother who was close to me being one (of) the fruit of my labors was affected of the issue. I will send you the details next time because at this point of time we are still working to solve the issue with the help of God. Please include us too in your prayers and if you have quotation that can help us for the clearing of the issue please send it to us.
     Now I see what were the experiences of Paul, that false teachers were destroying his labors. And sister White said that because of the false brethren it increase tenfold the burden God's servants, most of all when the work is broadening and extending to other areas.
     On the other hand I’m happy to tell you that the work in ____ City is going good. They told me that they are not attending now the Sabbath worship in the SDA Church for many months, they just held their Sabbath in their own house. I visited them and attended Sabbath with them and during that Sabbath some of their friends in the SDA church visits them too while I was there. So we discussed some issues about what is really happening in the SDA church. I pray that these new brethren can stand firm in the message of present truth and be a light to those inside the apostate church....
     Our work here in the Philippines is continuously moving onward though we have again experienced a church crisis, but I am very thankful to the Lord that He allowed this to happen to purify the church. According to the words of inspiration, God is sifting His people through hardship, reproach and sorrow, and if other means failed He will permit the winds of doctrine to blow to separate the chaff from the wheat. And I believe that this is His one way of purifying His church.
     As I told you (earlier) that we were having a problem with our church now. Brother Rowie Carpena a brother from Texas USA, persistently holding his idea, after being counseled and reproved, that the believers should now remove their shoes before entering the place of worship; he taught it to the church with new believers. He was counseled and rebuked by the church about his fanaticism that causes the new believers to be confused. He was given a time to think about his doctrine if he want still to continue with it, it was answered already by the brethren and explained it well before him that that ordinance was already finished and instead of removing our shoes literally to maintain cleanliness in the temple because dirt would desecrate the temple, this signify that we before ministering before the Lord should cleans our heart from every taint of sin. But instead of heeding the warnings and counsels given he declared his position with determination to continue in his doctrine. As a result a new believer (the policeman) of present truth was affected, he was leaning to brother Rowie as we observe. Today there is a clear line between our church and brother Rowie because the church acted her part to disfellowship him according to the gospel order.
     The brother who was confused will decide this coming March 3, 2006. He will decide if he wants still to remain in the church or he will be with brother Rowie. He was also counseled and has given to him the written position of the church. This is very sad news, but I know that God has a purpose in permitting this to happen. I know that if he is not really the son (child) of God, he might be sifted and the church should rejoice instead because we see that God is really holding the reins in His own hands.
     God is blessing our work of tracts distributions here, for there was a couple whom I told you before. They are really now a very active in the work of God, being the fruit of tracts distribution. We are having a Bible study at night. They are now striving to be a vegetarian in God’s grace. I am thankful to God that this couple did not experience the church crisis for they accepted the truth unknowingly that there was a problem arising within the church about brother Rowie’s fanaticism. The people who have received our tracts were very curious and were asking about it. The SDA church was very mad, they said that they would be persecuted because of these literatures. They aired in their radio program giving warning to the Adventist and non-Adventist to beware of these groups who were going around and distributing tracts. Oh! This is very sad news instead of rejoicing because of the message, which will prepare the people of the ongoing judgment, and to receive the seal of God and to avoid the mark of the beast, they hated the people who were doing it. They are not really the chosen people of God. By their fruits ye shall know them that they are not God’s church.
     We have been from our fellowship with our brethren in ____. It was a happy moment to be with our old brethren who are still moving to become strong in the Lord. They have already built their little church building, oh! a very happy church. My wife and me had taught and encourage our youths and others to devote their time in Lord’s work through the colporteur ministry. We have given them some guidelines and if God wills we will have training for all who wants to be a colporteurs. This might be this coming ____ 2006. For all these things may God’s name ever be praise! (Editor's Note: Amen, and amen!)
     Till here for now, and I pray that may God bless you brother, your family and your ministry.
     Your brother in Christ, B.H., Philippines.

Dear Bro Bob,
     I John 3:1
     Hi! How are you? As for me and my work here, I'm okay though I wasn't able to use my computer for almost a month because it got trouble again and again. Last January, when I receive from you my allowance I went to ____ and use the money to buy new motherboard, video card and some parts that are needed in my computer and brought it to the technician so that it will get good and will back to normal use. And as of this time, it's in good condition again. I hope that it will continue in good condition so that I can do my work continuously and faster without any hindrance.
     Bro Bob, sorry for my delayed report. Last Dec, we had a fellowship with some of our brethren. Though some were not able to come, but we still continue to held it. We planned work for God's cause especially how to dispose faster those newsletter that are newly printed and also those Spirit of Prophecy books.
     Last January, we (me and ____) spend Sabbath to our brethren in ____ to encouraged them and at the same gave to them the six boxes of newsletter that they can use in working for the Lord. Some of our brethren there are getting discouraged because of the trials and adversities in life so we went there to strengthened and encouraged them. We told them that it is not time for us to become discourage and weak for we know that the Lord is coming soon. We review to them how short time we have now. And they are very thankful that we visited them.
     What we do here in our place is, we distributed and give out tracts or the newsletter. If some are open, we are also offering them to buy the Spirit of Prophecy books in Tagalog. Some are very eager to read the newsletter, and some asked for more. We also encountered a lot of sick people and we taught them the right way to live and advised them to follow the laws of health. We encountered people who has diabetes, tuberculosis, arthritis, cancer and all kinds of diseases. And we advice to them to take herbs we know that are good for their case. And you know, those who follow our advice got a very good results and they are very thankful to us. In this way, we open and shared to them God's message and that it is through the violation of God's laws why people suffered. You know, it is really a good feeling to work for the Lord. Though we encounter a lots of disapproval, but we move forward doing His work as we look to Jesus.
     This coming Sabbath, we will be having a fellowship in ____. All our brethren here in ____ will meet there. We are praying that all will be able to attend so that all may receive God's blessing. We know that we have no time to lose. We need to press together and move forward in being part of His work. The coming of the Lord is really very near and we need to prepare ourselves especially our character so that we become fitted for translation.
     Also I am very sad to inform you that Bro Rowie Carpena, the one that came from Texas and went back here in the Philippines are having some doctrinal problem. Since last year, we rebuked him and showed to him already of his fanatical error, but he did not want to leave his error. He is teaching that we need to put off our shoes when we enter in God's house of worship. Sad to say that he is influencing others especially the newly converted. The SOP clearly said that it is not time for us to do it so, but he didn't accept it. We labored for him many times, and give him time to realized his errors, but he is firm in his stand. So our church here decided to make a decision according to God's word against him and his teachings so that others may not be contaminated. He has also some other fanaticism. But we are still praying for him, that God will open his eyes so he can see his errors, though he is being cut off from the fellowship of the church.
     Till here for now. Please include us in your prayers. May God bless you!
     Your's in Christ, S.B., Philippines.


(Combination of 3 letters) Dear Elder Sessler,
     Christian greetings,
     From Deut 4:31: “(For the Lord thy God is merciful God;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers, which He swear unto them.” We thankful for the prayers of all the saints across the world, the effectual fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much, this reason we are still pressing forward to the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ.
     Thanks for the booklets with present truth messages we are still receiving, more recently got more -- four M-bags, and thanks for the financial support which helps us meet our daily annuities much as things will never get better economically for the Bible says upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity Luke 21:25....Our country is plagued with political upheavals and some parts due dry spell, the water levels have gone below drillable and drawing levels making it so difficult for the rural persons who use the bore holes and protected springs. Making come true the prophecy of Ezekiel 12:14 and 4:16 “Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water with trembling and with carefulness. I will break thy staff of bread and shall eat thy bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment.” Water in this places is a rare commodity and very expensive for the people whose annual income may not exceed 100,000= to buy a 20 ltr Jeri can at 700= to 1000= u shs and yet they have other essential needs which are more demanding than water. Friends, our people in other parts have a war which has lasted for almost 20 years (with) over 2 millions persons are displaced, almost a million persons have lost lives and many have physically become lame and physiologically sick. This has fueled the spread of Aids/H.I.V. amongst the poor community of our people! We are almost being faced with a cold genocide: the situation is pathetic.
     The good Lord brought a friend from ____ who took some (of) our booklets to give to the people in that area, and thank him for at times we can not divide ourselves to all places where the truth should go home to those people. But since our Heavenly Father has a thousand ways, He simplifies the work for us. And glory should be to Him.
     We pushed the camp to Feb of this year. On the 1st of 2006 we had a special service with fasting and prayer for the work of the Lord and for members to get jobs, or what to do without, which it becomes very difficult and burdensome. And other issues that are demanding on our side.
     On 2nd went for the funeral of Brother ____ Mother. I was given chance to minister who lead the funeral service (and) the text was taken from Titus 1:5. Thou should set in order the things that are wanting. The population was big (and) I carried tracts and booklets which after the service where issued out.
     This in brief writing is what our heavenly Father saw it fit that I should be engaged in His great work, I praise Him for that and many other things that I may have forgotten but which are so precious and indispensable in our day to day labors.
     I have dizziness either due to fever, but I’m not feeling fever (and) I beg for your earnest prayers, that this cloud is taken away in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Editor's Note: you are definitely in our prayers.)
     Elder I have been enabled to push ahead on the building project. I’m almost reaching the ring beam, after which wall plate and roofing level, I still ask for your help and others (so I) to go forward, it will be a blessing come true in this life (if we get the building completed)....
     This month has been tuff/ruff in that at times we go without our daily bread, but all in all we thank the Lord that He is making something out this experience for our good, and the preparation for the time of trouble which is just ahead of us, when an economical embargo is set on us because of our faith in the blessed Jesus. Rev 13:17. There are many changes in the world, in our land there is political strife or unrest because of the elective office of the head of state, the spirit of war is abroad in the country (and) we earnest call for your earnest prayers.      On the gospel side the Lord is blessing us with another family -- this brother is pastor in the Pentecostal church. He says he has known the truth about the Sabbath and is ready to join faith with us. Pray for him that he may loosen himself for there because of many ties to break, one is the financial aspect since it has been his livelihood. His names are ____ ____. As Joel says “multitudes are the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision”. Joel 3:14.
     Elder we have many programs to reach to different places to prepare people for the camp meeting and other meetings. We need to help God’s people get ready for His 2nd advent, but the financial inability staggers our journeys. “The world is no more ready now to credit the message for this time than were the Jews to receive the Saviour’s warning concerning Jerusalem. Come when it may, the day of God will come unawares to the ungodly. When life is going on in its unvarying round; when men are absorbed in pleasure, in business, in traffic, in money-making; when religious leaders are magnifying the world's progress and enlightenment, and the people are lulled in a false security, --then, as the midnight thief steals within the unguarded dwelling, so shall sudden destruction come upon the careless and ungodly, 'and they shall not escape.' [1 THESS. 5:2-5.]" 4SOP, Page 38.
     "Some of these agents of Satan were affecting the bodies of some of the saints--those whom they could not deceive and draw away from the truth by a satanic influence. Oh, that all could get a view of it as God revealed it to me that they might know more of the wiles of Satan and be on their guard! I saw that Satan was at work in these ways to distract, deceive, and draw away God's people, just now in this sealing time. I saw some who were not standing stiffly for present truth. Their knees were trembling, and their feet sliding, because they were not firmly planted on the truth, and the covering of Almighty God could not be drawn over them while they were thus trembling." Early Writings, pg 44.
     It (is) here that our people would be helped in various ways that the Lord in mercy has given us to help, that He may (have) a people prepared for Him as the King of glory....
     We live in a day where the wise men are blind or totally unwise, where the mighty are brought low without struggle, and the rich are the most worried people in the world, external prosperity is first fading out and internal prosperity is now called to stand out, among the few that Jehovah is sealing for the great salvation.
     I apologize for having missed to write the previous month, it was due to many ups and downs that we are brought to experience in this life.
     Visited ____ with purpose of collecting some books S.O.P. books with Br ____, save he was going to Congo (DRC), he was with some people whom believes are the same with us but after sharing with them I discovered they were Historical Adventists of Ron Spears and others. I’m praying for another time to meet with him and tell him a few things I know about this group. The Brother promised to give some books after he comes from Congo. (DRC). To date I have not received from him the materials needed to build the spiritual Kingdom.
     Brother ____ is still weak, his health has not fully come back, the others are fine in the Lord....
     Visited ____ and ____ to encourage the brothers and sisters. That side life is economically bad, but God's people are still firm in the Lord.
     Back this way, the Lord added some one to our small home Church who is still struggling with alcohol or strong drink, he is well educated, he was doing masters degree, (but) due to the death his wife he went into self abuse by over drinking. He is (now) on the road to recovery which requires our humble prayers, he is (named) ____.
     Political situation has been tense and with African Nations, it can easily spread into a savage war (with) loss of human life and property. There has been a Global Fund Scam (and) lots of money have been stolen which is to help the AIDS/HIV and fight against Malaria which is endemic in sub-Sahara Africa.
     From the Minister of Health to highly esteemed persons -- they have been implicated in the scandal. The principle Judge on the Commission of Inquiry, Justice James Ogoola, described the scam in a more prophetic words as he is good reader of S.O.P books. "From evidence present before inquiry panel, it is now clear that the moral fiber of the state is in sorry state; our generation is abominable generation doomed to desolation; drifting without compass and having no harbor to mount off. The corruption in the country was a malignant cancer." This also describes the state of the church (where) the leaders (are) goofy (make big mistakes), robbers, and name any thing abominable is the so-called church of Jesus Christ Today.
     Elder thanks for the support received. The good Lord used me in the ministry of help that I bought sewing machine for a helpless lady at the cost of 170,000= Ug, shs.
     Elder Sessler I still put forward my humble request (again) in construction of a house this side please come to my help.
     God bless you.
     I remain yours in Christ Jesus, H.K., Uganda.


(Combination of 3 letters) Elder Bob,
     Greetings in Jesus name. Through your prayers my family is fine and all the family of God with me here are fine too.
     I am sorry I have not written to you sending the reports...due to the work (I) am doing now. I am very busy distributing with br. ____ the booklets you sent last time. True Church booklet has become a great tool to the new people coming to our faith, and they really need many (more).
     Besides this the Lord is so grateful and good that He has assigned me with another work to co-ordinate the coming world camp-meeting. I am busy contacting brethren in many countries, and praise be to God two new home churches will be joining us from new countries: Malawi and the near country were I have been invited to go and study with this family who are still SDA, but ready for the separation message, they are in Angola....To God be the glory, about 8 countries have shown up that they are coming...
     Br. ____ is also very busy with the same work. I have travelled many times to visit br. ____ home church, many are the brethren from different churches have joined our faith. Among these is a br. who was a catholic priest who was in the school of Priesthood for four (years) and has stopped and by the grace of God, (for) he has the truth we have. I have met the br. ____ (and) have studied with him to explain some of his questions using the present truth we have. He has a very big testimony to tell...
     Moreover, I have been in contact with Sr. ____ of Malawi who is in the home church since that year I went to that country. I will soon be travelling there in the first week of April, 2006. I will be taking many types of our materials and will study with them. I praise God. It was my prayer for many years that the Lord will help open another contact with brethren in Mozambique and Angola, our two neighboring countries where it has been so quiet for many years. Thank you Lord, the way has been opened. Through the current programme that I have been assigned, of co-ordinating for the World camp-meeting, the Lord has open a line of contact with these brethren, and so they will be coming to the camp in ____, 2006....
     The work in Zambia and the neighboring countries has really expanded. I have been traveling up and down up the same borders of the country, and I have distributed many materials, just leaving all the things in the hands of God. Please pray for the work and the workers in Zambia and other countries here. We have really reached at the crossroads, and the Lord is winding up His work in the manner which man can't see. TM 300.
     Elder Bob, I really thank the Lord to use you in 1997 to open up the line of truth with me, and now I praise God that many have come to this truth, though it has not been easy, and up to now things are getting on hard and hard every time. We need a lot of money for the work. I have been invited to go and study separation message with the br. in Angola who has just allowed himself to accept our truth in that country. He was in Zambia, and (years ago) we were together at school and in the SDA church. He is now ready to accept this truth, and he is willing to come to our World camp meeting...I will be going there soon after I come back from Malawi and immediately (if) the Lord will give me the transport money.
     These are the things which have been going on since Jan, 2006, in summary.
     Please, please, elder Bob, help me with the second hand or new, if possible, set of the SOP as mine are gone to our new brethren. (Editor's Note: A set will be on its way to you soon.)
     OUR TROUBLE AS AT NOW. We need support. MANY things are not well with us (or) with the families, as the USA dollar has lost value in Zambia; we are in credits (debts) with the bills of water, power, tel, and house rentals, about $550 needed for me and br. ____. And LIVING A LIFE OF THIS NATURE, WITH THE TRUTH WE HAVE, CANNOT (AMOUNT TO) MUCH (IN THE EYES OF THOSE WATCHING), AND IT MEANS (TO THEM THAT) WE ARE PREACHING FALSEHOOD. KINDLY HELP US IF POSSIBLE NOW....So we are really in trouble. Like this money you (recently) sent: we paid for house rentals and only remained with $150 for bills (such as) water, power, and our School (for our) children, food for two months. Only God will help us. Our way of life is not matching with the TRUTH we are preaching; it is showing as if we are worshiping a poor God. These are many of the questions we have started answering from people. Pray for us...
     Presently am preparing for a trip to Namibia with our little tithe.
     God be with you and add more blessings in your work. I will be happy if I hear from you.
     To God be the glory, B.W., Zambia.
