OUT OF ASHES MINISTRIES
SEP – DEC 2016 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
As we look back over 2016, we can only be amazed at the incredible favour and evangelistic opportunities that God gave us in both the UK and the Nations. Throughout this year, I have had the privilege of carryout ministry in various churches, prisons and schools. I’ve driven up the M6 as far north as Bradford and on the M25 as far South as Chelmsford. At the end of June, I was invited to minister in Cairns Australia, where as part of a team we headed into the bush where we ministered to various people groups including Aboriginal communities. In Oct 2016, I returned to Kolkata India, where again as part of a team we witnessed many people coming to faith in Jesus. More recently we were invited to return to Poland, again to share in churches, sec schools, prison and a drug & alcohol rehabilitation centre. Praise God, the news just gets better, as we’ve just learnt that Searchlight Theatre Company in association with Regents Theology College performing arts department are going to produce a stage play based on my book “Out of the Ashes”. The plan is to tour the UK from 24th June – 8th July 2017. If your church would be interested in hearing more about this ‘Stage Play’ please contact me. We pray that this will be a tremendous evangelistic opportunity to reach people thought the UK, using the creative gifts that God gives us. They were really tough times during 2016, as our great friend and Chair of OOA’s trust Cyril Evans, fell asleep and woke up in the glorious presence of Jesus. Cyril 84yrs had a huge impact to both the ministry and to myself as a mentor and personal friend. The passing of Cyril has brought changes at board level with the arrival of Rev Paul Colson Chair, Andy Parker Secretary, Paul Roberton Treasurer, Ray Randell Dep Chair & Lorraine Gravett Pray Hub leader. We’d also like to thank Peter Stagg and David Butt for their part in building in a firm foundation for the OOA’s trust.
We at OOA’s ministries are very excited at what God is doing in the ministry, including the release of my new book Out of the Darkest place. The story is based on the life of Mephibosheth (2 Sam 9) and draws lessons on how our crippled lives can be transformed by the grace and power of God. To order OOTDP email firstname.lastname@example.org Recently I was invited back to a school in Kutno Poland after being informed that the young students were really inspired by our ministry that took place there last year. You can imagine my amazement when the director of the school came forward and proclaimed that she had recently found faith in Jesus just after we spoke at this school last year. We give the glory to God and thank him for the amazing and wondrous ways in which he works in peoples lives. We should never put God in a box by expecting him only to move in our churches but rather step out of the boat and let him guide our footsteps.
Please will you pray about giving to OOA’s ministries both short and long term. Our treasurer informs us that we have funds to take us to July 2017. The scriptures say: that God will complete what he has started and that he will supply our need according to his riches in glory. We trust in the Lord with all our heart that he will provide for us during 2017/2018. However, if God speaks to your heart please will you respond so that we can continue with this God given ministry.
