A New Hallelujah!

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,
“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.”  Revelation 19:6

As you read today’s letter of joy from John, you may enjoy listening to Michael W. Smith’s new song, “A New Hallelujah”, performed with the African Children’s Choir from Uganda.  What a beautiful song of praise during the week we celebrate our Savior’s birth!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Praise the Lord From Whom All Blessings Flow!!

This year, the Lord has done great things. We have seen the hand of the Lord almost on each and every thing we touched.

Prisons Ministry as usual has had the biggest number of those who have come to Christ.  In 5 prisons alone, we had 234 men and women come to Christ.  And, we have fed and nursed over 8 children that live with their mothers in prison.

Akim- one of the sponsored students who up until several years ago lived in prison with his mother.

By God’s grace, we started the food programme.  There has been a huge need in this area, and I am particularly aware of it, having grown up on the streets, without food and a place to live.  These were real issues that could even have caused my death, so we resolved to extend a hand to those who are really in need.  Children who would have stolen no longer do so.  They instead come and eat freely.

Also by God’s grace, we now have 113 children sponsored, with 6 new children (Sula, Bosco, Robert, Eva, Joan and Olivia) having been sponsored this past week.  This is a great joy to us and we are discipling these children so that many servants of Christ will be produced.

It’s also been a joy to minister to nearly 1000 students in primary and High School. Out of these, 600 are regular attendants to the Bible clubs and Church Services. Isn’t this amazing!!

This year the Lord healed our son Cephas.  We thank you all for your prayers.

Before the year could come to a close, the Lord gave us a 30 acre piece of land which we have termed as our “Gold Mine.”  Why??? Because it is going to boost our food programme and help us feed our school children (50% orphaned and many very poor).  We are going to grow more and more food. We are so happy for all your helping hands. We have not enough words to express our joy.  It is inconceivable, unthinkable, inexpressible.

It’s at this point, that I wish all of you a Merry Christmas in the joy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Brother John
