We've been on the run since late August, first to Colombia for 3 weeks, then to Gambia, West Africa for 2 weeks, then to Texas for 2 more weeks. All 3 ministry trips were very strategic in consolidating the PLANS the Lord has for Holy Fire Ministries. Yes, Carolyn traveled with me on all 3 trips. Her mangled leg from having 7 surgeries is gradually healing. I must say we are enjoying being first to board our flights. (-:

There are so many new developments in our ministry that we cannot possibly cover them all in one post. Here are the heavenly mandates:
PLAN #1: THE SPAIN BASE
On Thanksgiving day our Colombian family departed for Spain on a heavenly assignment to help us establish an international training and sending base to Europe and the nations. This assignment will be priority over the next decade.
PLAN #2: TAKE THE NATION OF GUINEA BISSAU
Years ago we sent missionaries from Gambia to this nation to establish an interdenominational Bible Training Center. Many students were taught the good word of God and ministers were raised up. Now it is time to renew this vision and revitalize the work. A group of pastors there have also asked me to conduct at least two pastors conferences a year to help equip them to reap and preserve the coming harvest. We are combining efforts with CFAN for a massive crusade there in 2023. The Lord confirmed this great assignment by granting myself and our team resident visas to this nation, so we can be traveling freely in and out. Praise the Lord!
The difference between this crusade and so many others is the joining together of teams and streams of other ministries and churches and Bible training centers to not only reap a massive harvest but to preserve it for lasting fruit.

PLAN # 3: RENEW THE WORK IN GAMBIA
This is a tiny nation we lived and labored in as missionaries during the 1990's. The work has declined over the years and plans are in the works to revitalize it. With the help and cooperation of teams and streams of other ministries and churches and the grace of God, we are very confident that we will make a mighty impact here and also take this nation for Jesus.
Leaving Gambia ...
Please pray Mathew 9:38 for these nations and Colossians 1:9-11 for us and our teams. Also, please prayerfully consider being a monthly partner and or sowing a financial seed into these works.
