Logo1Global Missions Ministries has received the following report from Bishop Gopal Lama, our leader in Nepal. Please continue to remember Nepal in your prayers. If you would like to help support the rebuilding of Nepal you can donate online by clicking here.

“Warm greetings to you in Jesus name. We have now experienced the second major earthquake in Gorkha, in 25 April. Gorkha was the Center Point of earthquake. But our COGOP churches are safe & believers are also safe. With the money sent by the Church of God of Prophecy, I have been able to buy rice, dall, beaten rice, and we distributed it in Dhading & in Gorkha.  

All 15 Church of God of Prophecy churches, all pastors houses, believers homes are totally destroyed. Now all church members in Dhading they have been having Saturday church service in an open space ground. All of them crying, asking help to me, please continue keep in prayer.

We have moved from Kathmandu to Kawasoti, including my family. From Church of God of Prophecy we need help to rebuild 15 Churches & pastors houses. Otherwise they can’t be able to serve the Lord fully. They are depending on us, Church of God of Prophecy international headquarter. 

Thanks for raising support for the Quake victims. May God bless you richly.

The rented house building where we used to live, stay in Kathmandu, totally damaged first floor, highly risky, danger to stay there, please kindly keep in prayer.”

In His Service,
Gopal Lama

Continued Growth in Hungary, Project Opportunities

Continued Growth in Hungary, Project Opportunities

Front View of Building
Front View of Building

As God continues to move among us and new people come to His saving grace, the church in Hungary continues to grow by leaps and bounds. In the city of Jászapáti, the church has now found a suitable building for church services. It is close to center of the city and the neighborhood is good. The pastor of the local congregation has had a conversation with the owner who is willing to sell the building at a cost of 2,6 Million Forints, which is about $9,300 USD (by today’s exchange rates).

Bishop Clayton Endecott, National Overseer of Hungary and General Presbyter for Europe, CIS, and Middle East shared in an appeal with the Harvest Partners of Hungary on Monday, “We do not want to lose this opportunity but know other people are interested in the house as well. In whole, we consider this building well worth the money and believe it could be very well be used for our church services and even for other mission activities. Won’t you join with us to see this building become a worship facility in Jászapáti? Any gifts of love are greatly appreciated to help us in this venture. We know that if we all work together, we can realize this blessing more quickly.”

The building in Hungary was a house that the local church has been renting. It has already been converted and opened up for more room for their services, with smaller rooms to accommodate Children’s ministries, a bathroom, and kitchen, etc. It is a very moderate style and will be used as the main church building in Jászapáti. 

Local churches can give through Harvest Partners Project Giving, and individuals can contribute through Helping Hand. Please earmark your gift as Hungary-Jászapáti Building.

Transportation Need for Hungary
Image-09Another essential in Hungary is for much needed transportation for our lead pastor, Brother Rupa László. Pastor Rupa is traveling, not only to pastor several congregations, but also helps to oversee the general ministry taking place in the nation. Pastor Rupa has located a used, but suitable, vehicle at a car dealership in Budapest.

Local churches can give through Harvest Partners Project Giving for this transportation need, and individuals can contribute through Helping Hand. Please earmark your gift as Hungary-Vehicle.

Bishop Endecott continues, “Thank you, Harvest Partners, for your faithfulness in prayers, encouragement, and loving support to the ministry in Hungary. It is greatly appreciated.”

Over 37,000 Gather for Haiti Diamond Celebration

Over 37,000 Gather for Haiti Diamond Celebration

Image-21The Church of God of Prophecy in Haiti celebrated its Diamond Anniversary Celebration this past month as over 37,900 delegates gathered for the 75th National Convention. During the weeklong celebration, 312 people were baptized, 27 weddings were performed, and 105 people were reported as converted.

National Overseer, Jean-Claude Dorlean writes, “I want to take benefit of this moment to thank all our Harvest Partners and donors for their prayers and loving donations to Haiti. Most especially since the earthquake in 2010, I want to tell you that your donations have done a lot of things to rebuild the COGOP in Haiti. You have served us faithfully in remembering the words of our Lord Jesus Himself when He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’ (Acts 20:35). Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued prayers and support.

Image-16Haiti currently has two construction projects underway in the North.

  • The church in city of Raymond, located in the Northwest, has had many items completed but quite a lot remains to be done. Pending projects include finishing the roof, installing windows, doors, and the floor. An estimated cost of $5,000 (USD) would help us to complete this church.
  • Pastor Durosier Milton, who died from cancer in 2012, gave the property for the church in Fort Liberte, located in the Northeast. This church will be one of the largest COGOP structures in the Northeast. The members gather now under a tent because much remains to be completed, such as the concrete, the roof, the floor, the doors, windows, etc. An estimated $30,000 (USD) would help our people complete this worthy project.

Image-23Thank you, Harvest Partners, for your faithfulness in prayers, encouragements, and loving support to the ministry in Haiti. It is greatly appreciated. Please be assured that you have made a tremendous impact for the Kingdom of God in this nation.

New Church Opened, Vision for Church Planting in Guyana

New Church Opened, Vision for Church Planting in Guyana

Bishop Earl Higgins, National Overseer of Guyana recently shared a report of the exciting ministries and activities within his nation. As you read this report, join with us in praying for the work in Guyana.

Report from “Operation BreakthroughImage-7
Pastors Clement Moore, Roy Abraham, and I worked on the church building and conducted Camp Meetings in the evenings and the Sunday morning service. Our Amerindian brethren are very excited about being in their own building. We are getting set to commence construction of the shed, 30 feet by 40 feet in front, which will be enclosed over time and eventually serve as the church building. The completed building will serve as sleeping quarters when we visit. A team of Guyanese women, Pastor Clement Moore, and I are scheduled to conduct Vacation Bible School and Camp Meetings at Mora, July 13-17. The erecting of the shed and the Mission Trip in July is a project sponsored by the Women’s Ministries led by Sister Vivieen Murray from the South Ozone Church, Queens, New York, USA.

Revitalizing Church Planting in Guyana
Image-3Internationally, the Church of God of Prophecy more than doubled its membership under the theme: Turning to the Harvest – the vision of our late General Overseer, Billy D. Murray. Guyana embraced that vision.

In our White Wing Messenger, dated October 2007, Bishop Brice Thompson, then General Presbyter of the Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean Islands, wrote an article entitled: “Revitalizing Church Planting in Guyana.” We had lost our momentum in Church planting. Like Nehemiah, I was saddened, inspired, and challenged by the contents of that article.

At our National Convention, May 2008, I preached on the topic: Vibrant Local Churches – Revitalizing Church Planting in Guyana. The local Church at Antioch was presented as our model.

At our Caribbean Leadership Conference in St. Maarten, January 2013, I presented a document entitled: My Personal Vision on Revitalizing Church Planting in Guyana. I set the goal to plant two Churches in 2013. At the conference, a brother from Haiti told me that was already done. In 2013, Churches were planted at Moruca and Novar. In November 2014, a local Church was planted at Better Hope. To God be all the Glory!

We are believing God to plant ten new Churches in the next two years.

Image-1Bishop Vidal’s (General Presbyter of South America) vision on Church planting presented at our Caribbean Leadership Conference in Jamaica, January 2015, was fuel for the fire in my spirit.

All that we do will lead towards planting churches. Volunteers for Church planting will be mobilized and trained by our Centre for Biblical Leadership, utilizing the Strategies of Church Multiplication Network. We are inspired by William Carey: “Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.”

Image-4Thank you, Harvest Partners, for the bread and water support you generously give to support Guyana through your monthly Mission Giving (HPL1). The ministry of Guyana is deeply grateful for your love, encouragements, and faithful support.

Churches and Individuals can also give to special needs through Project Giving (HPL2 or HH) by designating your gifts for a
specific project.

If you would like to know more about Project Giving for Guyana, please contact the Global Missions office.

Spain/Portugal National Convention, 2 New Churches in Barcelona

“We thank God for all this time, for the pastors, leaders, members and all the people who came to Barcelona to support us, for those who prayed, and for all the people who helped in other ways as well,” said National Overseer Jose Antonio Gomez. “We had a beautiful time of prayers and God was moving with restoration, cleansing, liberty, reconciliation and some people accepted Jesus as their Savior…conquered personal areas and became prepare for growth in Christ.”

Global Missions Ministries and the Asia-Oceania General Presbyter’s Office have already begun sending emergency assistance funds to assist with the immediate needs of our leaders and members in Nepal. Please continue to pray for Nepal and consider how you might be able to assist with the relief and coming recovery efforts for our church family there.

Bishop Gopal writes:

nepal-quake“Greetings from broken Nepal with broken heart.

Thanks for remembering, thanks for praying.

Thank God me, my family, and my parents are safe, though we are taking refuge in an open space in Kathmandu, no food to eat, no water to drink, not have proper Tent, in dire need.

In the Kathmandu, city itself is still taking dead body from the buildings, what about in the hill and mountain area.

My father and mother they were in the mountain in Dhading district, just this morning, I could got the news about my parents they are safe. Praise God for that.

Nepal quakeIn the Dhading district in the mountain, 1 of our cogop pastors died in the Choke village in Dhading, and in the Richet village one pastor’s wives died. Many churches and many of our pastors house and believers are totally damaged, washed away from the flood.

In the mountain area, not only the earthquake but after the quake, begun to fell down big rock, began to fall even the top mountain, and begun to flood.
Many times big helicopter went to the mountain side, but not enough place to land, only small size helicopter, that also some time due to heavy rain, cloud, could not land.

Many peoples are dying without food, no rescue, no shelter……!

Bishop Gopal Lama, National Leader of Nepal

All Nepalis in the WORLD are CRYING. Hospitals are facing shortage of oxygen, citizens are not getting basic needs still, even in Kathmandu.

Nepal Crisis Relief Effort

Nepal Crisis Relief Effort

Logo1On Saturday, April 25th, a magnitude-7.8 earthquake hit the small nation of Nepal, spreading horror from Kathmandu to small villages throughout the nation. Nepal police have reported that the nation’s death toll has risen to over 4,000 people and continues to rise. Other deaths have been reported in neighboring India and Tibet. Well over 1,000 of the victims were in the capital city of Kathmandu.

More than 7,180 people were injured in the quake, with estimates of tens of thousands of people having been left homeless. More than 100 earthquakes and aftershocks are making rescue work difficult, especially in the mountain villages that have been made almost impossible to reach.

Nepal quakeWe have had communication with Brother Gopal Lama, our National leader in Nepal. Brother Gopal reports that he and his immediate family in Kathmandu are safe, though their home was structurally damaged by the earthquake. They, like so many in Nepal are now staying in a tent. He has not heard from his parents or anyone living in the mountains as there are currently no communication services nor electricity there.

Asia-Oceania General Presbyter, Bishop David Browder reports that we have over 70 church fellowships in Nepal and three current operating orphanages. The local church fellowships are scattered so it may take a while to get news of just how much loss our church family has suffered. Our hearts ache for them but we continue to trust God.

Northern India has also suffered damage. We have heard from Brother Joshua, our Northern India regional leader, and he and his family are safe. He has not been able to contact his family in Nepal and reports damage in his area. He is waiting for word back from our family throughout his region.

Your intercessory prayers, love, encouragements, and financial support are needed now more than ever to help us provide necessities to our family in Nepal as they work to recover from this disaster. Won’t you consider how you can minister to our family during this time of crisis?

As you are able to designate gifts of love please designate them as Nepal—Crisis Relief Efforts. Local Churches can designate their gifts through Harvest Partners and individuals can give through Helping Hand Ministry. Donors who support our orphanages there can designate their gifts through One Child Fund. You can donate on line immediately.
