Our Fathers-house NEWS UPDATE

Greetings to you all – this is an update on the ongoing activities of Our Fathers-house, to keep you informed, to thank you for your support and encouragement and to ask for continuing prayer for the ongoing work to spread the Word of God from wherever we are.

 

Our Fathers-house continues with its work to preach, teach, and prepare resources to support Christian growth, maturity and to encourage Pastors, Leaders, and Christians in these challenging days. There are many opportunities through the Nations to share and resource the Church, at the same time there appears to be a neglect within our own countries of New Zealand and Australia which we need to pray for also -

 

Over the past year we have provided a lot of personal support to encourage people going through difficult times due to sickness, faith challenges and opposition due to restrictive measures applied to some working places. We have been active in meeting teaching requests, with many expressions of interest and activity amongst Churches through India, Pakistan, Kenya, Uganda and beyond which is wonderful.

Recently I facilitated a teaching series locally on the Holy Spirit, the Gift of the Holy Spirit and the Gift Ministries with the saints being equipped to GO into the World and preach/teach and make disciples. We have been preparing a follow-on teaching series to start on August the 3rd locally for people in the Local Church and beyond where there is interest.

I am reminded here of the two scriptures, Mark 4:14 The sower sows the word. Vs. 20 But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred." And Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters, For you will find it after many days.

As we sow the Seed of the Word of God and His Kingdom, we rely on the Holy Spirit to take the Word and plant it in the hearts of men and woman everywhere. Requests have come back to translate our materials into local Languages which we have agreed should happen – so the Gospel is being spread wide and far, this truly is happening. A support ministry: John and Fiona Steffens on-forwarded notes from this series to Churches in India and Pakistan who they support – they replied:

“Dear John, thank you sharing in depth teaching of Trevor on "Purpose of the Holy Spirit - Building His Church". John in two days I have gone and read this once and thinking to re-read once again because of its depth. I loved it. Even in past I had strong conviction on Ephesian 4 and 1 Corinthians 12,13,14 in building Church as the base but now getting more insight.

John its worth to translate in Indian languages and distribute to others so one can get deep understanding about Holy Spirit and His work. Its 35 pages in English version, a small book one can carry everywhere.

John many are stuck up on the point of Gifts and forgotten the purpose, the fruit, the person, and ministry of Holy Spirit. I believe that if we can translate in Telugu and Kannada languages and bring them in circulation it will shake the ground in Andhra and Karnataka States. Wilson”.

Dear John, I want to thank you and Trevor for allowing us to make translation in our languages with authors name without any changes.

My translation may work for book print it need professionals touch, I know one person who can help us in translation with little amount but print difficult.

Let me see what I can do. - Wilson.

James in Uganda

We spend time weekly with James, his wife, and children on facetime to

mentor and coach them as they build their Church – they have two children

with a third on the way – his wife was taken to hospital on Monday (July 25)

as she is not well – may need to stay there until baby is born. They are

running Sunday meetings, Bible school Friday night, 4 homes Churches and

doing weekly/daily visits to neighboring towns to share and preach the

Gospel – they are doing a great work – please pray for hem

We recently released a teaching Manual, titled “The Kingdom of God - Opposing Kingdoms” this manual has been uploaded to “Our Fathers-house” web site and has been circulated to many Pastors and Leaders, including the Pastors noted above – who have been circulating these also – Web site: www.fathers.house

We continue to prepare and upload weekly teaching snippets on Our Fathers-house” U-Tube channel each Tuesdays and Thursday every week – we remain available for preaching, teaching, and facilitating seminars where there are needs and interest for equipping people for the work of ministry.

Continued prayer is apricated for the ongoing work of Our Fathers-house”, the preparation of teaching that is relevant for these critical days we live. There is no doubt we are living in the ‘last days’ so it is important that we provide teaching that informs, empowers, and equips people to walk their journey of Faith and to spread the Word of Salvation wherever they can to reach the lost –

Pray for the work of Our Fathers-house and its influence to be effective in all aspects of ministry – pray for those who give of themselves to support and prepare resources, recordings, and manual preparation. There are several people committed to advance the Kingdom of God through Our Fathers-house in providing resources to support and meet the need of the hungry and thirsty for God and the Holy Spirit.

Encouragement:

God Shall Scatter His Enemies

Psalm 68:1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song. Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him. 2 As smoke is driven away, So drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 3 But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly. 4 Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. 5 A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. 6 God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

Let us rise up together to resist those who seek to destroy the message of the Cross, the governments who seek to oppose the great work the Christian Churches are doing and evil leaders who seek to marginalize the Gospel/Church – God will not be mocked and the Church will not back down – together as we play our part the work of the Gospel will continue to go forth and people, cities and communities will be revived.

We would love you to keep in touch by any means – the following contact details are listed for your information.
