OUT OF ASHES MINISTRIES
July N e w s l e t t e r
(2 Tim 2-20:21) In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use. If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honourable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.
Its been an incredible few months of itinerant ministry along with witnessing God at work in His perfect plans for the continued fruitful development of Out of Ashes Ministries. Since April we have ministered in two HMP prisons, preached and shared testimony in numerous churches in the UK, carried out a 10 day evangelistic mission in Poland, carried out TV Interview on TBN and most recently completed 13 performances of the Out of the Ashes stage play. I have also been contacted by UCB Europe who inform me that a Hungarian translation of my book will be released in Hungary this month. Their aim is to send out 3000 copies to pastors & leaders of churches.
It was such a blessing to be able to minister at HMP Dorchester and HMP Send in Woking. At Dorchester I was accompanied by Adam Hogg fellow evangelist whilst at Send I was accompanied by Out of Ashes trustee Lorraine Gravitt and my wife Sarah. During the meetings many men & women responded and were clearly touched by the grace and spirit of God. Also prison chaplains were also encouraged and refreshed through the power of the word and by our visit.
Our ministry to Poland saw myself and Trevor Jackson a leader from Church on the Way in Bradford set out to minister in two major cities, Katowice and the polish city of Chelm. In both cites we shared in churches both evangelical and catholic. We were invited into prisons, schools mostly catholic and children’s orphanages. We travelled great distances including a 6 hour train journey to Chelm but it was so so worth it, as we saw God move in peoples lives and along the way we made many new friends. The painful part was whilst travelling, trevor had to put up with my box of jokes!!
Recently I was interviewed on TBN TV in London, this christian channel network goes out to millions around the globe. Since my interview I’ve received emails and texts from people including one person who states “Seeing your interview has given me renewed hope that God has a future for my life, a hope I lost a few years ago”
The 13 stage play performances were simply amazing so many positives responses!! One leader of a church came to the front after the performance and actually broke down in tears as a result of what he’d just seen. Such a powerful presence of God! Already we are getting enquiries from churches wanting info on future stage play tours. Also whilst performing in London a couple from the music industry came up and stated, that they would like to the script emailed to them as they feel that this play could be made into a stage play musical. Prayers on that one please!!
In August we will be moving to Malpas nr Newport in South Wales. This calling is not doing a hard Churchexit from Andover Baptist Church where we currently worship, its answering the call of God to expand the Out of Ashes Ministries (Jer 6.16).
Over the last few years we have developed a very good relationship with a church in SW so much so that the leaders of this church feel very strongly that God has ask them to invite us to join them in targeted evangelism in their city. Since accepting Gods will our moving expenses have been paid for along with Jessica being accepted into our No1 choice of school in Caerleon. Also we have bought a 3 bed house from Christians that allows us to be mortgage free. (please note that we will still need continued financial support as major changes have accrued in our finances with Amy and Joel having just left school).
I have continued UK church ministry engagements throughout 2017 and missions overseas to Cambodia, Poland and later in the year Ghana.
