Dear beloved: I am excited to announce the plans for the upcoming mission to Africa in September 2013. God has faithfully opened many doors in Africa, and after prayerfully considering the opportunities, the Lord has given me the go ahead to release the following schedule. I humbly ask for your prayers for this nation taking tour, as well as your financial contributions to help make the trip a reality. 1 Chronicles 29:9 Then the people rejoiced because they had offered so willingly, for they made their offering to the Lord with a whole heart, and King David also rejoiced greatly. v10 Then David blessed the Lord in sight of all the assembly; and David said, "Blessed art Thou, O Lord God of Israel our Father, forever and ever. v12 Both riches and honor come from Thee, and Thou dost rule over all, and in Thy hand is power and might; and it lies in Thy hand to make great, and to strengthen everyone. v13 Now therefore, we thank Thee, and praise Thy glorious name.'
I will be going first to Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo, September 4-8, to do a three day outdoor crusade and pastor training for 350 pastors, hosted by Apostle Samson Ilunga. Goma is the location of recent rebel conflicts in Eastern Congo, and I am looking forward to completing what was started last year, namely the defeat and dispersion of the enemies of Goma and North Kivu state. What a mighty victory we had in Goma last year, and the latest I have heard on the rebels is that that have been killing each other as a fulfillment of the scripture I preached regarding King Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20. The second leg of the tour will be to Busia province in Uganda for another 3 day outdoor crusade and pastor training for 200 pastors, September 11-15. My hosts for this leg of the trip will be Pastor David Odong of Uganda, and Pastor Lucas Obanda from Mumias, Kenya. The last leg of the trip will be a crusade in Nairobi at Strathmore University. It will be a three day outdoor crusade on the campus, and in addition I will be speaking at the university during the week. Dates for this meeting will be September 18-22. In addition, that week I will be speaking at Daystar University, a Christian university in Nairobi. I am looking forward to working with the students at these two universities, these are the faithful servants who kicked off a 24/7 prayer movement after a crusade I conducted in Nairobi in 2012. They are expecting 4-5,000 students from all over Kenya for the crusade, what a joy it will be to encourage these young people! We will wrap up the trip with a trip to the Masai Mara Wildlife Preserve to unwind, relax, and take in the beauty of the big animals of Kenya, the lions, elephants, and rhinos, God's magnificent creations.
I will be taking a team with me on the last leg of the trip including ministering at Strathmore and Daystar University, as well as visits to orphanages and other kingdom endeavors in the Nairobi area. If you would be interested in this please contact me for trip details and costs. You will of course need a current passport as the first requirement. Dates for that portion of the trip will be appoximately Sept 15-26.
Beloved, please lift this trip up in your prayers, the battle belongs to the Lord, but the victory will be claimed through prayer. Pray for souls, for the dispersion of the enemies of all these saints in Africa, and for provision for my travel and related crusade expenses. Total budget for the tour is $22,500. Estimated cost for individuals wanting to go on the Nairobi-Masai Mara is $3500.
