May 2012 Mission News

Dear Friends,

   I thought I would share with you the message I shared with the Pastors Fellowship in India this month. It is very short, but holds a wealth of truth in it for each of us to apply.

Ps. 90:12
(KJV)  So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
(Darby)  So teach us to number our days, that we may acquire a wise heart.

So, (because of the fact that our days have an ending date to them (Heb.9:27) teach us, through intimate knowledge of you and direct revelation from you, to number our days. That is to assign them a purpose and reason.  To tell them what they are to accomplish for us and for God.  Help us to weigh out their worth and to treasure and use them wisely, that we may apply our hearts. Meaning, that we may attain to all that You Father God have put into them, that we may carry out Your plans and purposes.  That we may make the best use of our time given to us each and every day and bring to pass the dreams and visions that You Lord have implanted inside of us.  We cannot do this Lord, without your wisdom and guidance!

You have told us that if we lack wisdom to ask it of you, and you would give it to us. Not sparingly, but that your would pour out Your wisdom upon us that we may make Godly choices, that will bring blessing and honour to both ourselves and Your Name. (James 1:5)

This we desire Lord.  We are passionate to pursue You!  TO Know You, to experience more of you in our lives, that more of You may flow through our lives into the lives of those around us, that all of us may never be the same again!  One touch from you, one moment in your Presence and we are undone. We are changed. WE CANNOT stay the same, nor do we want to.  We want to come up higher.  We want to live a life that is sold out to you. Not mediocre, but ablaze with the Light of your Glory upon it. White hot, with the fire of Your Love burning in us.  Consume our petty selfish ways oh Lord!  Give us a heart that is after you. Not after your blessings, but after YOU Lord!  Show us the power of Your Love.

Even as the mountains tremble and melt in Your Presence, so do we Lord!  Slay us with the melting power of Your Love, until we are consumed and nothing remains but Love and from that operating base of Pure Love, then may we be your emissaries, Your Ambassadors bringing the Good News of the Gospel that YOU LOVE US! And That YOUR LOVE rescues, heals, redeems, restores, makes new and whole and brings to right all that is wrong.

Love tears down dividing walls.  Love delivers captives and sets them free. Love turns the tide FOR us, not against us.  Love confronts prejudice and over comes it by disarming it. No wonder the Apostle Paul said, Love Never Fails! Because You ARE LOVE God, and You never fail. You never give up on us; You never stop reaching or ever stop loving us.  Teach us Lord to never give up!  Teach us how to Love!  Teach us to number our days, that they be fat with YOU.  We ask all this in Jesus Name. Amen.

Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart is to love You more
To live with the touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways

Pastor Titus reports that more and more pastors are joining the fellowship. There were over 38 this month!  Plus, we have an open door to rent a building in Chennai and begin a new School of Ministry there!  Cost is $165.00 a month and this will include room for the attendees to have a place to stay, as well as teaching and a place for ministry!  Please pray for sponsors to step forward to commit to a 1 year program.  Thank you!  Once we have secured the building( $1350.00 deposit) Titus will divide his time between Chennai and Madurai, ever branching outward in a widening circle with crusades and evangelism, pastors meetings and of course this new School of Ministry! There were also3 villages evangelized and 78 salvations this month. Praise God! He says: “I share my heartfelt thanks for the trust you have in this ministry.  May God stretch His hands of blessings towards all our well-wishers, friends and partners. In Christ, Titus Ananda Kumar.”

In Uganda we have just launched our 3rd Branch Church of Jesus Christian Center!  This took place on the same weekend that I attended the Home Going Tribute Service of my adopted “Mom” Pastor June Austin. I can think of no better tribute to her love, care and encouragement and help to me in starting Heart n Hands, than to be opening up a new church that very weekend.  Here is Pastor Ben’s report:

My Dear Mama,
Here is the report and some pix of Mipigi:
Over 100 souls came to the Lord!!!!!.  The Church is full of new people, most of them former moslems, hallelujah.  God did amazing things, one lady who was a moslem was bed ridden and she was brought to the crusade. Jesus healed her and her healing up to now is shaking the moslems, they cant deny the power of God.

Tomorrow I leave for Bulopa where our other branch church is under construction.  I leave in the morning by 11 am. There is a friend who gave us cement which I have to take, plus want to see the progress of the Church there plus talk to Pstr Enock personally and some of the leadership.

 Crusade in Mipigi                   

 Grande Opening of Jesus Christian Centre, Mipigi.
Thank you for standing with us!
Love, Nancy Tom and The Board of Directors
