No.15 – Ay Yi Congo!!! Ay Yi Conga; Burundi, Bhutan and Brazil; Kenya Rift Valley

Hope you get the beat of the Conga! Not exactly the Bing Crosby version – but in my youth we used to dance the Conga at the end of parties and wedding receptions.

AT 6AM ON A SUNDAY MORNING I REJOICE THAT THE CONGO CLUSTER OF NATIONS (so far DRC, CAR, Burundi and Rwanda) is wonderfully part of our VISION. 3 OF THESE NATIONS ARE THE POOREST IN THE WORLD. Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_GDP_%28PPP%29_per_capita

MORE ABOUT THIS VERY SOON.

In Update No.13 below i spelt out clearly our VISION for ‘easyBibles. Teams and nations totally supporting us will be in our PREMIER LEAGUE. Others who are prevented by their governments or by poor American theology and teaching will temporarilly ( I hope) stay in the CHAMPIONSHIP.

BURUNDI (really neighbouring RWANDA (Kigali) – but many leaders in both nations can understand Kirundi and Kinyarwanda. My new friend Revd Emmanuel supervises care for 150 orphans and also helps many disadvantaged people in Kigali. Please support his site www.ovcrwanda.org -as God leads you.
He joins us in finding teams for these 2 languages and also for neighbouring DRC.

BHUTAN
Here G a friend of the current leader of BMS for Europe has agreed to join the easyNepali team led by Revd Harka of Kathmandu. Nepali is one of the many languages of mountainous Bhutan.

BRAZIL
For several years i have had veryeasy Portuguese from Carlos – my friend there; but tomorrow, Monday i talk to another leader there called Antonio. Please pray for South America.

KENYA – RIFT VALLEY
Bp Isaac and Godfrey are pleased to welcome Kandak – also from Eldoret – to help with Drift Valley languages.

————————————————
Other new translators this month are from Sudan (Arabic), Camp Bidibidi, Uganda (Nyepo & Bari), Zimbabwe (Shona) and South Sudan (Nuer).

No.14 – Fasting Wed 1st August; AVSs tidy for East Africa

My recent email to friends in Tanzania, whom i’ve visited twice in the last ten years or so and rejoice to be moving forward with in our new policy of INDEPENDENCE.
(EAST AFRICA is leading the way followed by NORTH-EAST INDIA and it’s NEIGHBOURS.
Bp Isaac Makokha and Revd Khupkam Vaiphei are leading our new AVSs(African/Asian VISION SUPERVISORS) forward.)

The email :
‘Dear Brother Samuel and Sister Sarah,
It will be my great pleasure to visit Musoma and Mwanza again next year – perhaps, this time via Nairobi and Jinja, Busia in Kenya, Kisumu…..
I still remember you rescuing me from that hotel on the shores of Lake Victoria.
Love too to Marco and sister (pls remind me of her hair-pulling name) – she must be beautiful now – married?

But it may be in 2019 as i need to visit Asia first.

India vote this week to allow Same Sex Marriages. We have a very close relative who is gay. India has a larger population than Africa. Even China, Russia, US, Canada, Australia… thinking hard about this issue. Franco – now i/c of Camp Rhino (with his brother Yoseph – helped by Patrick) is prepared – if peace holds in South Sudan to visit Ethiopia to persuade them.
You or Sauli or Frank (we met them in Morogoro) could do so much in your own large nation but also reach out to Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique. Then going South, i still have friends in Lesotho, S Africa, Angola, Zimbabwe, Madagascar…..

I wait, perhaps till Christmas for a small, optional operation to get rid of my catheter – then i’m free to travel – avoiding as many mosquitoes as possible. The anti-malaria drugs cause me slight problems.

blessings and thanks again = i enjoyed my boating in Lake Victoria, off Musoma, last time – perhaps again?’

STOP PRESS – easyShona from Zimbabwe has restarted today! – helped by Bp isaac and Rev Samuel. And Patrick Chandiga is helping new friend Emmanuel from Rwanda with easyKinyarwanda.

——————————————————-

Pls pray for Asia to catch up. particularly Malaysia and Indonesia.
We rejoice in Luke’s Gospel in easyUrdu – checked, printed and on it’s way from Parkistan

No.13 – VISION restated; AVSs African or Asian Vision Supervisors;

May i make this QUITE CLEAR ;
OUR FULL VISION FOR EVERY NATION AND IT’S EASYBIBLES TEAMS IS :
1. COMPLETE AFFIRMATION FOR LGBT+ PEOPLE – INCLUDING SAME SEX MARRIAGE
2. FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE AND OWNERSHIP OF IT’S COPYRIGHTS

———————————————.
ONLY SUCH TEAMS CAN GET INTO OUR PREMIER LEAGUE.

SADLY SOME GOOD TEAMS WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE BUT WOULD FACE FIERCE OPPOSITION FROM THEIR AUTHORITIES FOR HELPING GAY PEOPLE. WE RESPECT THEIR SITUATION AS BROTHERS AND PRAY ALONGSIDE THEM FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE. THEY REMAIN IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP

——————————————————–
OUR NEW VISION SUPERVISORS ARE :
1. FOR AFRICA – BISHOP ISAAC MAKOKHA OF KENYA SUPPORTED BY KIA MOSES A REFUGEE FROM SOUTH SUDAN STUDYING IN UGANDA
2. FOR ASIA – REVD KHUPKAM VAIPHEI OF MANIPUR, INDIA SUPPORTED BY REVD HARKA KHADKA OF NEPAL.

THESE FRIENDS HAVE KINDLY AGREED TO SERVE UNTIL THE END OF 2019 IN THE FIRST INSTANCE. PLEASE ASK GOD’S GRACIOUS ANNOINTING ON THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES.

LET’S IMMERSE ALL IN PRAYER AND PRAISE

No.12 – Reshaping Group Conversations OR CLUSTERS; add ‘Lake Victoria’; 1st for Asia – ‘Kuala Lumpur’; Juba

As our territory for Camp Rhino is getting so large – now that we totally encourage ALL nations to become INDEPENDENT – especially from Uk and from me – we need to move away from inviting trusted leaders to only join ‘CAMP RHINO’ AND TO SET UP NEW CLUSTERS NEARER TO WHERE PEOPLE LIVE.

AND CAMP RHINO IS NO LONGER THE LARGEST CAMP FOR SOUTH SUDANESE REFUGEES IN UGANDA. THAT IS NOW CAMP BIDI BIDI -ALSO NEAR TO ARUA. AND ANYWAY, IF THEIR PEACE TREATY HOLDS, THIS TIME – SOUTH SUDAN IS RAPIDLY CLIMBING THE IMF TABLE IN https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_GDP_%28PPP%29_per_capita .

South Sudan is no longer one of the World’s bottom 10 nations. They, OF COURSE, have oil!

    SO I PROPOSE:

1. After Bp Isaac’s wonderful Conference in Musoma, Tanzania with Revd Samuel Mpanilehi that they set up a new CLUSTER for that area called ‘LAKE VICTORIA’

2. As we pray further for peace – another CLUSTER called ‘JUBA’ is established and led for the first year by Franco Malish Ndoromo. He hopes to lead back into Ethiopia as peace in these 2 nations settles down. Main leaders – leading for only for the firt year will share the load, promote a pleasant working atmosphere and encourage new nations to join.

3. The first Asian CLUSTER will be started by Ps Khupkam Vaiphei from Manipur, India, Ps Harka Khadka from Nepal & Ps N from Pakistan. It will be called ‘KUALA LUMPUR’ which in my experience is the cheapest and most helpful airport in Asia.

4. I wait for more feedback before deciding about Camp Rhino and Kampala.

THESE IDEAS WILL BE HARDENED NEXT WEEK – SO PLEASE SEND ME COMMENTS!!

No.11 – Tues & Fasting Wed – Uganda reacts; attitudes; Patrick; James 4 v 6; Continental leaders

In James 4 v 6 we read that ‘God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble’. This teaching happens at least 4 times in Scripture.
I’ve spent a lot of time, in the last 15 years visiting Uganda and it’s Christian leaders

But now is a good time to remember that God has no favourites – not the US, UK, Kenya or Uganda.
For Him the 1st shall be last.
I always stop reading James at Ch 1 v 9,10

There will be no Continental Leaders for ‘easyBibles’ Each nation needs it’s own leader who must lead humbly and probably change each year – to avoid pride.

LET’S PRAY FOR ‘HUMILITY’ AND ‘MATURITY’ WITH NEW & OLD LEADERS and FRIENDS READY TO ACCEPT THE VISION AND EXPERIENCED MATURE FRIENDS TO BUILD OUR TEAMS

No.10 – More INDEPENDENT Conferences; Malawi, Zambia; Pakistan, Manipur, Nagaland, Nepal; Asia; Peter Bisset

We rejoice at His working and the privilege of being involved.

Too early for fasting Wednesday – but i could’nt wait to tell you :
Today emails from Bp Isaac Makokha and Revd Samuel Mpanilehi – and please also see attached photos (senders – pls note that they need to be less than 1 Mbyte) :

Dear Martin,
The conference was very good! Bishop Isaac is a very good communicator. he encouraged the team a lot and every one was interested to start the work. There were many questions about the Ministry and both of us tried our best to answer most of the questions. I think some of them BP Isaac will share with you later when have time.

I am willing to travel with BP Isaac to another place! may be Malawi or Zambia. we can discuss together with BP Isaac and pray for this coming conference.
Blessings,
Samuel

Developments for Asia :

Today’s message to some Asian friends ;

Please read today’s growing update and note how Bp Isaac of Kenya, Revd Samuel Mpanelhi of Tanzania and myself have all had histories of trying to work together. – but God’s grace has triumphed.

Joel and Tulasha – would you please consider helping Revd Vaiphei encourage the area around Pakistan, Nepal,Myanmar and Bangladesh or perhaps Revd Harka can meet us sometime in Kuala Lumpur?
