MINISTRY

UPDATE

The call of God that I accepted 48 years ago still burns in my heart. I continue to preach the Gospel, to train and equip emerging leaders, and to encourage the Body of Christ to fulfill the mandate of the Gospel.

This year, to date, we have ministered in Egypt, Ethiopia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. We have witnessed the powerful work of Christ—salvation, deliverance, and restoration—and we have equipped the Body of Christ for the work of the gospel.

Vision Revitalized & Power Evangelism

AUGUST 2022, USA & ETHIOPIA

Dear partner in Gospel,

 

I hope and pray you had a great summer. In Texas, our summer was extremely hot which reminded us to be thankful for air conditioning and to trust the Lord for the bill. Gospel of Glory’s team this summer was very productive and eventful. We focused on leadership training and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry with intense prayer times.

Thank you again for serving the King of glory with us through your prayers and financial support. I told emerging young leaders during the biblical leadership training workshop in September that the uniqueness of New Testament ministry is that God calls individuals according to His perfect will and the Body of Christ agrees with the calling of God by sending. Paul was referring to this when he said, “James, Peter, and John…recognized the gift God had given me, and they accepted Barnabas and me as their co-workers. They encouraged us to keep preaching to the Gentiles,…” (Gal.2:9).

To me that simply says that those who send through their prayer and financial support and those who go are co-wo  rkers. No one is special in the kingdom work, but everyone has a very important role. Thank you for trusting Gospel of Glory’s team to be co- workers with you. We are honored to labor with you as partners in the kingdom work.

 

This summer our team focused on power evangelism in Ethiopia and the USA. Pastor Mesfin Mulugeta conducted a series of power evangelism meetings in Nashville (TN), Atlanta (GA), San Jose (CA), Seattle (WA) and Dallas (TX). The Lord moved by His love and mercy in healing the sick, delivering the oppressed, restoring covenant relationship and renewing spiritual life and walk with the Lord. We have received powerful testimonies not only about miracles during the gatherings, but also about the manifested presence of God in a very special way.

I conducted leadership training in New Jersey for Kingdom University on August 12 and 13 via zoom and in person It was a very amazing time of revelation and impartation. After ever session both on Friday and Saturday, we took time for feedback about the workshop. Many of the

participants shared their feedback with tears and a since heart of repentance. The repeated phrases included – “Why haven’t we heard such revelation before?” “I know who I am in His kingdom.” “I am renewed.” “My vision is revitalized.” “The Lord touched me.” “You have to come back. We need such revelation and impartation.” Few ladies cried most of the time during the sessions.

With emerging leadership training, we also conducted a special conference where we experienced the amazing presence of God. On the last day of the conference, we also took time to minister to the young people.

Our ministry schedule for the remainder of the year in addition to regular ministry of the word in conferences and during Sunday services will include mission trips to Lebanon, UK and Ethiopia for conducting power evangelism, church conferences and leadership training workshops for pastors and Christian leaders.

Would you send us again as co-workers? Let us finish 2022 strong together by redeeming the remainder of the year. I am so grateful that you have invested your faithful prayers and giving into the work of His kingdom for His glory. Thank you.

 

Your prayers and financial support are vital to the people in Ethiopia and Lebanon.

Spiritual RENEWAL & TRANSFOMATION

JULY 2022 - ETHIOPIA

Dear Partner in the Gospel, 

 

I am writing this with great joy for what the Lord accomplished during our mission trip to Ethiopia this month. Thank you for being part of this trip through your faithful prayers and giving. and for your faithfulness in advancing the Kingdom work. 

The focus of the trip was to meet with key evangelical church leaders and to reflect on three questions for spiritual renewal and transformation: 1) Where have we been as evangelical churches? 2) Where are we now? and 3) Where are we going as individual believers, the body of Christ, and the nation?

To start the dialogue, I met with the Evangelical Council (an organization established to give the body of Christ legitimacy in the nation) and the Evangelical Fellowship of Ethiopian Church Leaders. I have great respect for both organizations. My hope is for the two organizations to be united to give the body of Christ legal and spiritual authority in the nation for a greater impact for the Kingdom. The process has begun, but it will require prayer and further dialogue.

PASTORS AND LEADERS WORKSHIP

I believe that the call of Ethiopia is to advance the light of the Kingdom. That is God’s covenant with the nation. I held three-hour leadership workshops for about 200 pastors and leaders to highlight the call of the body of Christ in the nation and the empowerment of spiritual leaders.

In addition, I ministered at the weekly power evangelism, where 33 people accepted the Lord, and we saw physical healings and deliverance. I also delivered a series of messages based on Gideon’s question to the angel, “If the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us?” to the nation of Ethiopia via a Christian TV program. Furthermore, I spoke on the topic of “Renewal of Hope” for the nation to create an anticipation and expectation for the fulfillment of the promises of God.

RESPONSE AND INVITAION FOR SALVATION

I believe that the call of Ethiopia is to advance the light of the Kingdom. That is God’s covenant with the nation. I held three-hour leadership workshops for about 200 pastors and leaders to highlight the call of the body of Christ in the nation and the empowerment of spiritual leaders.

In addition, I ministered at the weekly power evangelism, where 33 people accepted the Lord, and we saw physical healings and deliverance. I also delivered a series of messages based on Gideon’s question to the angel, “If the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us?” to the nation of Ethiopia via a Christian TV program. Furthermore, I spoke on the topic of “Renewal of Hope” for the nation to create an anticipation and expectation for the fulfillment of the promises of God.

Now I understand why the Lord asked me to go back to Ethiopia a second time this year. And I am praying about the possibility of going back a third time, in November. I would meet again with key leaders for further dialogue to envision the future, and I would conduct leadership training for pastors. 

 

I feel that the nation of Ethiopia is on the critical edge of crossing over to its prophetic destiny. This is the hour I need to intensify my input, and I greatly appreciate your prayer support. But in addition to traveling, I have been asked to provide biblically based leadership principles to encourage and equip emerging young leaders and to renew the vision and passion of experienced leaders. By presenting this virtually, I can make it available to the body of Christ wherever it is needed. 

 

The Lord continues to open doors for great Kingdom impact. I am so grateful that you have invested your faithful prayers and giving into this work. Thank you. 

 

Please continue to stand with us as we move forward in these urgent and challenging times. Your prayers and financial support are vital to this Kingdom work.

MISSION TO ETHIOPIA

May 2022 - ETHIOPIA

Dear Partner in the Gospel, 

 

I am writing this brief highlight with great joy for what the Lord has done this month and for your faithfulness in advancing the Kingdom work. Thank you, again, for sending us to Ethiopia through your prayers and financial support for the work of God. I am convinced that, although every believer is not an evangelist, every child of God has a responsibility for spreading the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

The entire Gospel of Glory team—Pastor Habte, Pastor Mesfin Mamo, Pastor Genet Beeftu and I—spent two weeks of ministry in Ethiopia. Pastor Habte and Pastor Mesfin Mamo conducted a three-day worship workshop for young worshipers and musicians. At the end of the workshop, Pastor Genet and I met with the leaders for encouragement and fellowship.

After the workshop, Pastor Habte went to Lebanon for one week of ministry—a very powerful time. He witnessed healing, deliverance, renewal, and salvation. There was also a water baptism celebration.

Meanwhile, Pastor Mesfin Mamo completed recording a new worship album, which we dedicated on May 8th. I spoke about true worship at the celebration and release of this new worship CD.

During our ministry time, Genet and I met with key leaders and delivered the prophetic word of the Lord. We prayed with different groups of leaders for the nation and declared the purposes of God. May 2nd and 3rd, I ministered to the evangelical denominations’ fathers, who represented all the denominations in Ethiopia and shared a message from the Lord about their nation. Then I prayed with them a prayer of repentance and declaration. 

 

I ministered at power evangelism gatherings on two Fridays where more than 30 individuals accepted the Lord.

In addition to salvations, we also witnessed many physical and emotional healings, deliverance, and all kinds of miracles and signs. Let me share just two examples that I saw with my own eyes—

There was a young man in his 30’s whose body was completely covered with sores. Pastor Mesfin Mulugeta looked at him and said, “Where did this second Job come from?” Pastor Mesfin told those with him to bring him to the stage for prayer. They couldn’t do it because there was no place to touch his body. Pastor Mesfin came close to him and rebuked Satan in the name of Jesus. He told the man to be healed. The man was delivered and healed instantly. While I was watching with my own eyes, the sores were gone. He jumped up on his feet and started running around, praising the Lord. I have seen many miracles, but never have I seen anything like this. 

A young man in his 20’s was brought to the stage for prayer. He was not able to move his left hand and right foot. When he was in the military, bullets had entered both his chest and lower back, paralyzing him. Since both bullets were positioned on his nervous system, doctors couldn’t remove them. Pastor Mesfin prayed for the bullets to melt. After a short commanding prayer, the young man started jumping up and down as he was praising the Lord. It was an awesome manifestation of God’s great healing power.

I also spoke twice to the nation through a livestream Christian TV program. As I was speaking, more than 200,000 were following live.

After we came back, the Lord spoke to my spirit that I should go back two more times this calendar year for training, prayer and declaring the promise of over the nation. I have decided to go back in July and November in obedience to His voice.

 “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me.’” 

 

Will you send me back to Ethiopia through your prayers and financial support? 

Join us in praising the Lord for the doors He has opened for us to prepare emerging leaders for Kingdom work. Please join us, also, in your prayers and financial support for an even greater impact.

NEW SEASON

FOR GOSPEL OF GLORY

4F973D94-9A59-4611-9732-0377886CF2A8_1_1

Chuck Pierce presented me with this beautiful ministry mantle.

Gospel of Glory has truly entered into a new season in 2020. As you may know, I celebrated 50 years of ministry during the weekend of January 31-February 2.

 

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting us with your love, prayers and financial partnership. There is no way that I could have made it to this milestone in my life without you. You go with me into every nation where I travel and help me be the hands and feet of Christ.

 

The weekend was glorious, and the presence of God was tangible in every meeting. But it was not just a time of looking back. It was a time of looking to the future and hearing what God has planned for this ministry. The Lord has shown us that 2020 is a year of redefining, realigning, recompense, restoring power, and resetting our future.  At the celebration, I was blessed to be recommissioned by Apostle Chuck Pierce, Dr. Don Crum, and my spiritual sons. The Lord gave me a special mandate for this era of ministry.

Chuck Pierce’s and Cindy Jacob’s prophetic words, which are excerpted below, highlight my calling for this era.  

 

Chuck Pierce presented me with this beautiful ministry mantle. He said, in part, “[This is] a mantle representing new wine and representing building the future.  The Lord says, ‘You are being dressed in a way that only I could dress you. I am shifting you. You are not going to be teaching and making people understand. You are going to be imparting knowledge and strategies that change the course of cities and nations. You are going to be moving in ways that you never would have thought you would have moved.’ . . . The Lord says, ‘You will rally people throughout nations, but you will also blend those people and their favor into key apostolic leadership of nations. Get ready. I have just extended your call. You will build the future and you will build with power and you will build with understanding, but you will build with revelation. So, I say to you, go before, favored, for a new era has now begun in your life.’”

 

Cindy Jacobs spoke this prophecy: “Alemu, at your heart you’re a revivalist; at your heart you want to see souls saved. The Lord says, ‘I am getting ready to open doors for you.’  I see you doing some major outdoor meetings. The Lord says, ‘If you will plan for them even in your own country’—and I know it’s like your Nazareth, in Ethiopia—the Lord says, ‘I am going to give you miracles that you will hardly be able to believe.’  The Lord says it’s not just going to affect Ethiopia and Eritrea. It’s going to affect Uganda; it’s going to affect Kenya.  The Lord says that East Africa revival is getting ready to break out again and He says, ‘I am going to use you in a great way for that revival.’

500 Saved at a Youth Conference

INDONESIA

I returned last week from four weeks of ministry with great joy in what the Lord did in six cities, three countries and two continents. During these ministry trips, a verse that came to my mind often was the people’s response to Jesus’s ministry—“He has done everything well.” Mark 7:37 This was true of this ministry trip.

My ministry included speaking to small groups, addressing large gatherings, conducting leadership training workshops, providing consultation on curriculum design and ministry strategies, establishing divine order in local church settings, facilitating reconciliation among ministry leaders, ministering at local church services, and hosting a live webcast.

Since I stepped into full time ministry almost 50 years ago, one of my personal cries and burdens has been for the full manifestation of the glory of the Lord (that is why the Lord led us to name this ministry Gospel of Glory twenty- eight years ago) and for the generations. My life verse has been Now when David served God’s purpose in his own generation (Acts 13:36).

 

The highlight of this trip was ministering to 3,000 youth in Semarang, Indonesia. These young people came from different government schools with permission to attend. After I spoke and gave an invitation, more than 500 accepted the Lord Jesus Christ. To see them running forward was my greatest joy in 50 years of ministry. I felt as if the Lord said to me, “I have heard your cry for the generations.”

Others came forward for prayer, deliverance and freedom believing that there is power in the Holy Spirit to give victory. You can imagine the feeling I experienced and the tears of joy I shed back in my hotel room. Whenever I look at the pictures I’m sharing with you, I am again overcome with great joy. Praise the Lord with us as you look at what the Lord Jesus had done in the lives of hundreds of young people.

When I see this, I think of the word of the Lord Jesus, the great Savior and deliverer, in Luke 4:18-19, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

 

Another driving force of Gospel of Glory’s ministry is equipping Christian leadership for greater impact in the kingdom of God. The Lord gave an opportunity on this trip to minister to many Christian leaders. The highlight of my time with 1,100 pastors and leaders was to talk to them about “Discipling Kingdom Leaders.”

A Discipling Community From Believers To Disciples Conference

 

Again, I praise the Lord for His great mercy and opportunity He has given us to serve Him and advance His kingdom in strategic regions of the world. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your partnership both in prayer and financial support.

Please join us in your prayers and financial support for my upcoming mission trip to Egypt, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Brazil and the United Kingdom. One of the small churches in Cairo has been waiting for us to commission a pastor we have been preparing. The only thing that is hindering us is provision for the airline ticket, lodging and food for five days. Would you ask the Lord about sending us on these important trips to advance the kingdom work? Please join me in this great last day harvest.
