    Dear Mission Partner,

     

    ..."The Lord is risen indeed,..." and said..."Peace to you". Lk. 24:34,36.

    He is risen! This simple, yet profound statement is the foundation stone of our Christian faith. Upon it alone stands every tenant of our theology and future hope in Christ, now and beyond the grave. Because He lives we shall live also. Jn.14:19.

    Before the ignominy of Christ's betrayal, scourging and crucifixion, He assured His disciples of His peace remaining with them.  Jn.14:27.Following His resurrection, as He appeared in the midst of them, He still assured them of His peace.  Lk.24:36.Their time of training was ending; their Master had fulfilled His instruction to them and was preparing to leave them. They were afraid and uncertain of their future, but His assurance to them was, "...Peace to you".

    We live in a world of uncertainty. Fear is ratcheting up on every major front. It seems that every morning's new headline out-stress the last. Even the pundits are using descriptive terms formerly reserved for 'end of world' conversation. To us who believe, who, like the disciples, have followed the Master as Saviour and Lord, His assurance in our present circumstances,(however traumatic) is still, "Peace to you".

    Shirley and I have recently returned from Sri Lanka to the UK. We had four weeks there working with our pastors, preaching and doing leadership seminars. In one three-day period I had perhaps, eighteen forty- minute sessions.There is also always altar work, prayer and counselling. Local Board work and administration with our society there, is additional.

     

    Praise Points:

    1. The ministry is growing. There is ‘a fresh wind blowing’ and there seems to be a new expectation in the hearts of the pastors. We both sensed a great anointing in prayer times, in the services and on the pastor’s attitudes and outlooks. The presence of God was felt in every service.  Every alter was filled with those who sought and received God’s touch for their need.

    2. We visited numbers of assemblies with increasing congregations.

    3. Some churches are enlarging existing buildings; others are digging foundations for new ‘plants’.

    4. Our ministry there has, for the present, begun partial support for five such assemblies.

    5. In addition, we have been providing monthly support for all eligible pastors’ families, of about 350+.

     

    Prayer Points:

    A. For some of you who are interested in contributing to the church extensions or new church plants, in Asia, feel free to contact us directly. There are so many ministry challenges open today, we need to find the center of His will, then partner with it.

    B. We are also seeking direction in prayer for partnering in the support of a young evangelist to travel in support of our churches and to do ‘crusade evangelism’, leading to additional ‘church plants’. The cost of his fulltime ministry for personal allowance,travel, accommodation and ministry expense would be approximately $450 US monthly.

    C. We are asking prayer for direction on a major new possibility.There may be opportunity, as the Lord leads, to be included in partnering with others who would enable us to leverage our dollars invested. Perhaps to double or more, our dollar investment. This would apply to the church plant and evangelist projects. Please pray how we may seize this offer to the max.

    D. Please pray also for the present on-going ministry commitments. There are many plans scheduled and we need everyone with a heart for this work to stand with us now and through the summer months. This will help us underwrite the ministry budget cost and carry the monthly ministry need with integrity.

    E. You are an important part of this ministry team. Your continuing prayer and support is vital.  Please use the enclosed form to share how God is leading you. Also, please share with us how the Holy Spirit is speaking to you about the above opportunities.

    We return to Canada on April 15th and look forward to seeing many of you again.

    Please mark your planner for the GOF Annual Fellowship Dinner, Fri  Oct. 12th, 2018. Garden Park Tower, Abbotsford. More details later in the year.

     

    You are loved!

    Your servants for Jesus sake,

    The Wise Men Followed the Star

    Matt. 2:1-12.

    Dear Mission Partner,

    It’s Christmas time again! This is the special time when we, the Christian world, pause to remember and celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Moses recorded the first promise of Christ’s coming in (Gen.3:15). About seven hundred and forty years before Christ’s birth, the prophet Isaiah foresaw the event and penned; “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel” (Isa. 7:14).

    In the fullness of time, God revealed his plan to both Mary and Joseph who individually received angelic visitations (Matt.1:20-21, Lk.1:28-35). He informed them as to the work of the Holy Spirit in the conception of the Son of God. And the Christ child was born (Lk.2:6-7). The purpose of his coming - to “…save his people from their sins” (Matt.1:12).

    God revealed the birth of Christ to shepherds tending their flocks with an angelic visitation, declaring, “...Fear not…for unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord” (Lk. 2.8-20). They made haste and, came and saw Mary, Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger, and worshipped Him.

    Later, strictly following the Bible narrative, (and for this writing, ignoring the conjecture of astronomy), the wise men followed His star from the East. God led them in this divine way, which stopped where the Christ child lay. The wise men followed His star from the East. Arriving at the house, (a different time and place) they fell down and worshipped Him. They opened their treasures and gave their gifts to the Christ child (Matt. 2:12).

    Mary and Joseph, the shepherds and the wise men all followed the leading and direction of God. Today, wise men still follow the STAR - Jesus Christ, and His leading and direction.

    Jesus declares himself as “the morning/day star” (Rev.2:28. 2.Pet.1:19); and “…I am the root and the offspring of David and the bright morning star” (Rev.22:16).

    We may not follow a star or have angelic visitations, but we do still have His leading. He leads by the power of His inspired Word. David said “I will hide thy Word in my heart that I may not sin against thee” (Ps.119:12).

    He directs by the Holy Spirit. “The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God ” (Rom 8:16).

    He also may minister in dreams and visions and by the nine gifts of the Spirit. Men of God may be directed by God to speak ‘wisdom’ into some individuals need.

    As in the events leading to the Saviour’s birth, each individual was receptive to God’s method of leading.   In order to be led by the Holy Spirit, we also should be receptive and obedient. In this way we may enjoy God’s richest and greatest anointing on our lives at this Christmas season and all year long.

    Shirley and I have had an exceptional ministry year. Busy beyond words but happy and fulfilled in His perfect will in our lives at this season of ministry. This year we were blessed to celebrate our ’50 Anniversary’.

    We need your prayers as we anticipate a full 2018 ministry year; beginning in Sri Lanka in the early New Year. Thank you all for standing faithfully with us. You have enabling the work of soul winning and life changing to continue into 2018.

    Our love and prayers are with you and your extended families for God’s richest blessing and anointing on your lives in every way in the in-coming year.

    In His love and service,

    John & Shirley Abraham.

    His Resurrection – Our Greatest Moment

    A Blessed Easter to all our Missions Partners


    Dear Partner in Missions,

    For those of us who are Christian believers the resurrection of Christ is the greatest historical event. The Apostle Paul declared that if Christ be not risen our faith is (in) vain. 1.Cor.15:2,4.

    Everything He was, and claimed to be; everyone He blessed and delivered; everywhere he preached and taught that He would lay down His life and take it up again, would mean nothing if His resurrection claims failed.

    His claims did not fail. He did rise again as He said. And He ever lives to make intercession for us. His resurrection is one of the most certified proofs.

    The angel at the tomb attested to His resurrection, Mk.16:5-7.

    Jesus spoke to Mary Magdalene at the tomb confirming his resurrection. Jn. 20:16-18.

    He appeared to, and identified himself to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus. Lk. 24: 13-35.

    Jesus reveals himself to (doubting) Thomas as proof of His resurrection. Inviting him to see and feel the nail pierced hands and sword riven side. Jn. 20:24-29.

    Paul the apostle records in 1. Cor. 15:3-7. He appeared to Cephas, and then to the twelve, then to five hundred, then to James and all the Apostles.

    Finally, He apprehended Paul himself on the Damascus road as an eye witness of the resurrection; to name some. Act.9:3-9. 1. Cor.15:8.

    Because he rose from the dead after the crucifixion, He fulfilled His promise; “…I, if I be lifted up will draw all men unto me. Jn.12:32. And, “…because I live you shall live also”. Jn.14:19.

    For the Christian Believer, Easter should represent our highest form of worship and praise for our Saviour, Lord, and soon coming King.

    Christ greeted the two Mary’s after the tomb, as they went to tell his disciples. Jesus met them; His first word to them after His resurrection, being, “…Rejoice…”. Matt.28:9. So, whatever our heaviness or grief is, should  we not also Rejoice?

    So we, at this Easter time, should also lift our voices in praise and worship, “Rejoicing” that our names are written in heaven. Lk.10:20, and that He shall come in like manner as they saw him go. Act. 1:11.

     

    A Notable Miracle

    Almost a year ago a friend asked me to pray for his Baptist Pastor friend in California. He had ‘stage four’ terminal cancer in the abdomen. He called me every Monday evening for many months and we spoke healing and prayed with him. These chats were sometimes not easy for him, and he questioned much of the discussion. Long story short; recently he had a clean bill of health, was told it was completely in remission. He is becoming stronger and now returning to more of his regular pastoral duties and pulpit ministry. Needless to say he is “Rejoicing”.

     

    Ministry

    The work of ministry is unabated. Not overseas yet in this new year, as many issues are being attended to administratively. Board meetings are also on the agenda. Many hours are spent in the effort to write another book. Shirley is recovering from her first eye surgery and in two weeks will begin her second eye surgery. That will take an additional five weeks to process. Plus, there is the ever present need to raise adequate funds to cover ministry and travel cost. The new Global policy calls for the implementation of cash in advance of expense for overseas ministry. This decision in order to better manage the present economic slow down as it affects donation cash flow, and avoid credit card interest charges. We do need your prayers to address these urgent issues, so that full scheduled ministry can continue without interruption.

    CHRIST IS RISEN! Matt. 28:6.

     

    Dear Mission’s Partner,

     

    The fact that Christ is risen is the foundational corner-stone of our Christian faith. The Apostle Paul declared, ‘If Christ be not risen, then our preaching is empty and our faith is also empty. And if Christ is not risen your faith is futile; and you are still in your sins!” 1. Cor.15:17. Christ himself declares; “…Because I live, you will live also. Jn. 14:19

     

    In writing to the Galatians, Paul taught further, attesting to the resurrection of Christ by the Father; declaring “…God the Father who raised Him from the dead.” Gal.1:1. He continues: The same, “God who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me…”. Gal. 1:14-15.

     

    As Believers, like Paul who recognised the hand of God on his birth, his call to preach Him among the Gentiles, (1.Cor.1:21-25) we should understand the significance of his statement; “…To reveal His Son in me”. Paul is not saying: To reveal his Son to me. God had already done that on the Damascus road. Act.26:12-18.

     

    Paul further states that he considers himself deadwith Christ, and the life he is now living, he no longer lives (of or for) himself, “…but Christ lives in me”. Gal.2:20 We also must recognize that God has revealed His Son to us in our new birth. And now wishes to reveal Christ in us. Christ in us the Hope of Glory Col. 1:27.


    Paul is encouraging them to show forth Christ. To produce the fruit of righteousness. To evidence progression in their new-found faith. That Christ may be (fully) formed in them. And now in us. Gal.4:19. Paul’s thought in the original manuscript is that the child will become a mature adult- spiritually.

     

    We ask ourselves, “Have I really Changed in my new birth”? We should now be walking in the mature love of Christ for others; the mature forgiveness of Christ of others. Old nature gone, dead; now living in the victory of maturity in Christ.

     

    “Christ in us...”, He now encourages the Galatians to develop in mirroring the image of Christ to their world. He further instructs the Corinthian church, regarding the in-dwelling Christ; “But we have this treasure (Jesus Christ) in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us”. 2.Cor 4:7.

     

    The final victory of Christ’s resurrection will be His soon return. Again, Paul declares to the church at Thessalonica, “…when He comes in that Day, to be glorified in His Saints, and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed”. 2.Thess. 1:10. He lives – rejoice evermore!

     

    Overseas Ministry

    Soon after the GOF Fellowship evening in Oct ‘16, Shirley and I left Canada. After about five months overseas we both recently returned. Such a trip! It is wonderful to be back briefly with family and friends.

     

    As God leads we expect to leave soon; probably before the end of April for an extended overseas tour, including stops in Asia and extensive ministry in Indonesia. This tour may require up to four months. Please be in prayer with us that God will have His will in all the planning, travel and ministry. Pray that the provision will be there to care for the total ministry budget. Our schedule since last October has been heavy, but God enabled us to finish strong and with great success. In Sri Lanka and in the UK we had varied ministry. Evangelism, Seminars, Leadership Schools for Pastors, House Meetings, Counseling and mountains of administration and leadership decisions to resolve.

     

    Whatever the challenge, God was there. The Holy Spirit moved and lives were touched, saved and delivered. In many of the small house meetings the Presence of God was so real, we were silent and just watched Him move; doing His own deep work that we could never do. The blessing for Shirley and me is to feel the freedom of the Spirit to work on and change lives. To hear and see the ministry gifts of the Spirit freely in operation. It is a little like pulling the curtain back on the original Pentecost.

     

    Over several years, we have developed a friendship with a Muslim family. This year because of their personal issues, we were able to ‘come along side’ them and be an ongoing blessing to them; this is a historic breakthrough of which only eternity will reveal the full results.

     

    While being driven to an appointment in a large city, the driver was trapped in a massive traffic gridlock. We sat stationary for a few minutes then moved a car length. Ten minutes later, another few ‘lengths’. Finally, we set stationary for at least thirty minutes. I was asking myself “What is this about, when we have such a heavy schedule”? It was like the Holy Spirit planted the thought, “preach the word in season, out of season” within a few seconds the driver turned to me for the first time, saying, “What can be wrong, I’ve never ever been trapped like this?” I said, it gives us a chance to chat; tell me about yourself”. He did. I shared Christ with him and prayed with him; then the traffic cleared and we were off again. “Wow”, he said “what was that about”? I could have told him.

     

    The following day he came to my hotel for about two hours’ further discussion, which concluded with him praying a salvation prayer. The next morning, being Sunday, when I got up to preach, there he was with his wife and whole Buddhist family. I could write pages, but this will have to suffice for now.

     

    As we expect leave again before the end of April, we must covet your prayers for us personally for health and strength. Pray for the various aspects of ministry, all air travel and almost more critical, vehicular travel.

     

    By going for longer periods, we save considerably with fewer overseas flights; but it takes its toll in other hidden ways. Since this will likely be a four-month stint, the ministry budget will be very strained.

     

    For all of you who have supported soul winning for years; we thank you! May we ask you to please be in prayer for the financial hurdle that each of these trips present. Pray that God will supply. Pray that He will supply now before we leave, so we are fully funded and can minister freely without the financial cloud hanging over our heads.


    May we ask you who could be part of this ministry, and are in a position to invest with us in seeing souls saved and lives changed, to please come on board, and do what you can, to the best of your ability, as God leads you. We need you to stand firmly with us now, for this tour. We never like to speak of the dollar amount required for a trip, but because this is at least, a four-month tour, the expenses cannot be less than $25,500. Do please stand with us as we go with you as part of this ministry. We need your help. You with us are a team winning souls for the Kingdom.

    He lives!

    Easter Greetings in the Name of the Risen Christ!

    Jesus said, “…It was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem”. Lk.24: 46-47.

    Dear Mission Partner,

    By far, the most significant event in the Christian calendar is the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Jesus said, “….I lay down My life that I may take it again”. The apostle Paul declared, “…If Christ is not risen, your faith is futile: you are still in your sins! ...we are of all men the most pitiable”. But now Christ is risen from the dead…” 1.Cor.15:17-20. Since He is risen and we believe in His finished work, we are not still in our sins, but sons of God and joint heirs with Christ. With His resurrection on the third day as He promised, came our challenge, responsibility and authority to fulfill His command that “…repentance of sins should be preached in His name…”

    The function of Global Outreach is to be the vehicle that enables us to preach repentance and make disciples around the world. You are a vital part of this team and for many years you have sacrificially enabled us to fulfill our part of the great commission.

    We have just recently returned to Canada after being away since early October 2014. It was nice to be home after almost five months. For many weeks we were in England and Ireland preaching, teaching and counselling. After Christmas we went to Asia and returned here directly from Sri Lanka. That was an extremely busy time for Shirley and me, with invitations to preach in more place than we had time for. It would be nice to have younger capable men to take up some of the ministry and administrative load. Pray for that!

    Both Shirley and I felt that wherever she or I ministered there was an incredible freedom of the Holy Spirit. Ministry of the Word was easy and anointed and hearts were touched by Him and people quickly responded to come for salvation or deliverance to emotional, physical, marital and financial need. Even in church services many responded to give their lives to Christ.

    The power of the Holy Spirit ministered to many at the altars so that many people rested in the Spirit. After several minutes they would stand to their feet and give the most remarkable testimonies; how God had healed, delivered them or ministered into a deep hurt in their lives.

    Additional information on brain tumor testimony- To develop further on a testimony mentioned briefly in your last letter for the benefit of some who would like a little more detail. One man, very much larger than I, came for prayer. He immediately rested in the Spirit, lying motionless on the floor for several minutes. Finally he stood quickly to his feet and went directly to the pastor, as I continued praying for others.

    Later the pastor called me over to hear his testimony. He related with emotion, through an interpreter, as he held his head with both hands, how for many months he has had a diagnosis of a large brain tumor. He declared over and over many times how he knew he was now totally healed. He could now function normally, which he said he had not been able to do since the onset of the tumor..

    Much as I believed with him for healing, this concerned me and I encouraged him to see his doctor. That appointment would allow him the necessary examinations to establish his healing. It is always better in cases like these; i.e. diabetes, cancer etc. to have medical opinions.

    He told me in no uncertain terms that he was healed and that the tumor was gone. He declared his healing on the strength that all the physical symptoms that developed as the tumor grew; were totally gone. I went home thinking, John, Oh you of little faith!

    This year so far, and through to November for ministry is already very committed. We need you to trust God with us that the resources to enable us to meet this ministry year will quickly come. It is always difficult to make arrangements and not have the funding in to fulfill them. We need you to stand with us in this walk of faith; in a very real way, every little helps. We have to do what we can do and He will do what we can’t. Please pray that God will touch those who have the ability to partner with us. In this way God will work this miracle also, as we do what we can.

    About two weeks after returning home to Canada, both Shirley and I became quite ill with different issues. We seem to be ‘on the mend’ but we would really appreciate your prayers at this time.

    For those of you who need advance notice for the Fellowship Dinner:

    GOF Annual Fellowship Dinner Evening will be held (DV) as follows:

    Date: Friday Oct. 16th. 2015

    Place: Garden Park Tower

    Our love and prayers are with each of you as we are confident of yours.

    In His love and service,

    John & Shirley Abraham 300315
