To the Ends of the Earth


Dear Friends in Christ,

Jesus said, “Go, Make disciples of all nations teaching them all that I have taught you.”

The Lord is constantly providing opportunities for His people to impact the world with His kingdom. In the desert lands of Mexico and the mountains of Japan, in the townships of South Africa and the tiny villages of Ethiopia, in the outskirts of Honduras and the ends of the earth, people are crying out like the man from Macedonia saying, “Come over here and help us.” How will they go unless they are sent? This is the opportunity I want to address. Would you consider investing in the peoples of the rural areas of the nations by helping to send those who will carry the gospel, not with persuasive words of men, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, teaching them all that Jesus has taught us?

Teaching them all that Jesus has taught us refers to equipping the saints according to Ephesians chapter 4. Jesus gave gifts unto men...to equip the saints for the work of ministry, to the building up of the Body of Christ until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge if the Son of God to a mature man... There are Christian leaders in the rural areas of the nations that are calling out to those who will come and equip them so that they in turn can go and equip others to do the work of ministry.

Who will go? “Go, preach the kingdom, heal the sick, cleanse the leper, raise the dead and cast out demons.” They have freely received and they are willing to freely give. The work requires time, energy and resources. Ministers must have time to spend in fellowship with the Lord and His word, energy to meet the demands of ministry in third world nations and resources to effectively train and equip the saints.

Seasoned ministers and those training for ministry will go. Heart of Christ International is closely connected to Global Awakening and Global School of Supernatural Ministry(GSSM). I am credentialed with the Apostolic Network of Global Awakening(ANGA) and Heart of Christ International has been a member of ANGA since 2015. We are in process of obtaining 501(c)3 Non-profit status under the Apostolic Resource Center(ARC) of Global Awakening. This relationship with Global Awakening enables me to take David Hazard, a 3rd year student with GSSM as an intern this year. He will travel extensively with me assisting in the ministry and working with the teams that travel with us. The teams will primarily consist of GSSM students and alumni who will generally serve as the ministry team.

Working with the Missions Track instructor at GSSM we will be able to provide a variety of experiences to students who sense a call into foreign missions, but do not yet know the details of that call. This will add to their education in a meaningful way and prepare them to “Go” as the Lord directs.

How do we equip the saints? We equip the saints through encounter with the Holy Spirit, education of Biblical foundations and models for ministry as well as activation with hands on experience and impartation. As we train and  equip apostolic and other key leaders they are then commissioned to train and equip others. In so doing the power of the gospel is more fully demonstrated and extended throughout the rural areas of the nations.

Additionally we equip the saints who travel with us to serve as the ministry teams. Again, they gain experience through encounter, activation and impartation. They also have the privilege of learning the nuances of cross-cultural ministry etiquette, how to interact with leaders and yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit while honoring the authority of the house among other impromptu lessons from the field.

What does it look like to “Go” and “Teach all” that we have been taught?  Over the past year we have gone into the rural areas of the Mexican desert, the uttermost parts of Ethiopia and the townships of South Africa. In Mexico we worked hand in hand with the local church in the city of Torreon demonstrating the kingdom in their midst and extending the manifest presence of the Lord in a rural town totally controlled by witchcraft. Today, after modeling the love of God and His kingdom principles, that town is no longer controlled by witchcraft. A church is thriving and children are learning about the love of Christ. We returned a few months later for a focussed 3 day training for the sending church in Torreon. Now, they too are healing the sick, cleansing the lepers and casting out demons.

In Ethiopia we traveled to the uttermost, some two plus hours from the nearest town to minister to 70 pastors and leaders gathered for a 3 day training conference. We taught on the Biblical Basis for Healing, A 5 Step Model for physical healing, Hearing the Voice of God, Emotional Healing, and Deliverance. They were activated and had opportunity to practice what they had learned and each received impartation from the Holy Spirit in a special commissioning service.

In South Africa we ministered the same type of teaching in small local fellowships with pastors and leaders, community workers, and missionaries. There is a desire for more at every turn. Pastors are asking for teams to return and train their people in preparation for revival in their land. Hope is ignited. Love is blazing. And the people are ready.

The opportunities are increasing rapidly with doors now open in 7 countries and multiple locations in each. Apostolic leaders are requesting Heart of Christ International to come for extended times of ministry lasting from 10 days to 3 months. The opportunity for the Great Commission to be fulfilled is here now, and increasing.

In order for this vision of God to be accomplished in the earth, we must work together as members of one body, His Body, honoring and assisting each part to be and do all that God intended. The eye cannot do that for which the hand was intended and the foot cannot do that thing for which the ear was fashioned. We must allow the Lord to set each one in the Body as it pleases Him and offer our support to that part.

Thank you for all you are doing to increase the kingdom now and to be a blessing to those around you. Please consider the following proposal as a new opportunity to impact the kingdom through investing in the lives of the least of these and those who have said, “Here am I Lord, send me.”  I am eager to discuss it with you and to provide and additional information that will assist you in being interested to help. I am available to address any questions you may have and look forward to hearing from you.
