Tanzania Mission Yields Great Fruit


"The Tanzania mission to Kigoma and Mwanza reflected the true move of God as hundreds received Christ and God confirmed His word by healing many physical ailments," reports Anaclet Phiri, who represented our ministry team in the East African nation in late May into early June while Sammy and others were in neighboring Kenya.
                                                                  
"Hundreds gathered each evening on a dusty ground outside the church building in Kidahwe, a small agricultural village of 12000 residents on the outskirts of the city of Kigoma. Several trees provided shade for many who attended from the surrounding areas. The crowd grew every night during the week-long mission. Choirs, musicians, and praise teams performed incredibly singing and dancing with all might."
                                                                  
As Anaclet presented the gospel each evening, dozens would respond to the message preached, repent and gladly receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. God confirmed His word with signs and wonders as the sick were healed and others delivered from demonic activity.  
 
"One woman came to the meeting with her right leg paralyzed for a long time. She came expecting Jesus to heal her. She was not disappointed. We prayed for her and she was instantly healed. She went back home running the whole way." 

Prior to the outreach, several hundred  pastors and community leaders participated in leadership conferences in Mwanza and Kigoma where they were equipped for ministry and servant leadership.

No Room in the Inn...21st Century Version

It is the Christmas season 2009.  Like Joseph and Mary 2000 years ago, a young couple are on the virge of the birth of their first baby boy.  Although they are doing everything to prepare for the big day, it still catches them by surprise.  Instead of the regular 40 weeks, the baby is arriving six weeks early. Because they are not expecting it this early, their bags are not packed nor is the nursery fully furnished.  Safe for an early morning warning in a dream to the father to prepare to be in a delivery room and with assurance (from the Lord) that it would be o.k, the day started off as any other day. At 6:00 AM, the couple prays together for about 40 minutes in their home in Victoria.  They take showers.  At about 7:30 AM, the husband goes to work briefly from his home office while the wife prepares something for their breakfast together. Within a couple hours they will have a routine prenatal doctor's appointment.  Later in the evening the wife's sister and her two beau

The Other Frontline in the Battle for Souls- By Suzanne Wanyonyi

I've learned quite a bit while Sammy's been away in India. Other wives have told me over the years, that when their husbands are gone for ministry for extended periods of time, the enemy tries to attack during the husband's absence by causing the garage door to break, or the toilets to break or the hot water heater to go out. So, from the very beginning of our marriage I anticipated those things and shared my concern about them with Sammy. He understood. We've always had a plan in case something breaks around the house while he's away. Well, none of those things have ever happened. Other things have happened.  During this latest mission, while nearly 80,000 people were being won to Christ, the attack came in a way I wasn't expecting: The kids. There were more than a few nights where I had about 2 hours of sleep because the kids kept waking up. With Malaika it's not so uncommon, but Junior has slept from 8-8 for as long as I can remember. He'

A Medical Doctor With a Passion for God, a Love for People, and an Enduring Faith

Our Mission in Kenya Continued well. He is humble, he is joyful, and he works hard to make a difference among a Kenyan rural town's community.  That is Dr. Nathan Matasi, a gynecologist serving in Kitale town, Western Kenya.  There are hardly any hospitals in this part of the world.  The one government operated hospital in Kitale town serves a population of over one million people from the town and the surrounding rural farm communities.  Sammy and Gary share a moment with Dr. Matasi next to a corn field in Kitale on Tuesday morning before heading out for the prayer service in Nairobi, some 400 miles away.  Here you will find patients sleeping on the floor in overcrowded hallways, pregnant mothers sharing beds, and daily lines forming at the out-patient unit.  There are hardly modern equipment available for the few qualified doctors and nurses to use for diagnostics or treatment.  Majority of the patients can hardly afford to pay for quality medical attention. Yet it is
