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.

500 Saved at a Youth Conference
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.
