GWEA Monthly Ministry Report

“THANK YOU FOR SHARING CHRISTMAS!” (MATT. 25:40)
Again, “thank you” very much to all who sent in a special gift to help all those who asked for help this Christmas season. Your willingness not only to share the Full Gospel with others, but also to help meet people’s physical needs, catches Jesus’ attention. Jesus said, “whatever you did for one of the least of these… you did for me” (Matt. 25:40).
“PRAY WITHOUT CEASING” (1 THESS. 5:17-18)
“Pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17-18).” How is that even possible? For those who don’t know Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and who haven’t received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, it isn’t possible. But for us who have, it means that we can pray “in the Spirit”, (meaning in tongues), and “with the mind” (1 Cor. 15:14). We can be in prayer anytime of the day, for any need, for any person, and even for ourselves. When we do not know what to say, “the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words... according to the will of God” (Rom. 26-27). When we understand that it is possible to pray continuously around the clock for others “in the Spirit”, and “with the mind”, Jesus is always there to hear and intercede for us.
This is the reason why we invite you to send in your needs: personal, family, friends, acquaintances, business, church and health needs so we can pray for you. If you need prayer, please email your prayer requests or by posting to our "Facebook Prayer Group Page".
And when Jesus has met your needs, please let us know so we can praise Him along with you and "give thanks with a grateful heart!” We invite you to send in your praise reports and testimonies in a "Thank You Jesus Report." This way many others can be encouraged and be ministered to as well (Rev 12:11). Email your praise reports online through our web page. Jesus still does, "signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his own will” (Heb. 2:4). He wants to supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philip. 4:19).
“NEW WINE REPLACES THE OLD” (MATT. 9:17)
Once I had preached a miracle service in Florida and a 40 year old woman came to me and asked, “I’m an alcoholic and I have been dry for 3 months. I need healing because I know there is still something wrong.” I replied, “Do you still get the desire to drink?” “Yes,” she answered. I explained that her desire to drink was really a “hunger and thirst for righteousness” – meaning she needed to develop a right relationship with Jesus Christ. This could only be satisfied and obtained with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8). We prayed and she received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as she fell to the floor speaking in tongues. She came back the next night reassuring me that the Holy Spirit has taken away her desire to drink (Jn. 8:36).
“CASTING OUT DEMONS” (MK. 16:17)
“LIKE A RUSHING MIGHTY WIND - THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT”
Most people are unfamiliar with the work of the Holy Spirit. Gordon was led to write “Like a Rushing Mighty Wind”, to help Christians understand the unfamiliar ways and methods of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told Nicodemus, “The wind blows where it wills and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every one who is born of the Spirit” (Jn. 3:8). Gordon’s book will help you to understand the ways by which the Holy Spirit works, and like the wind, help you to identify the sounds which come in the form of the “Gifts of the Holy Spirit”. “Like A Rushing Mighty Wind” also explains the unexpected changes the Holy Spirit makes in us through the “Fruit of the Spirit”. It will teach you how to “worship in Spirit and in truth” (Jn. 4: 24) according to the “order of worship” found only in the New Testament. It will show you how to enjoy the “new wine” of the Holy Spirit and how to develop the exciting relationship with our appointed “Counsellor”. The Holy Spirit has something to say to each one of us daily so that we can live out God’s Plan for our lives. Gordon’s book will help you achieve a life that will look and read like the New Testament. Order your copy today for a donation of $20.00 each, or 3 for $50.00 (tax and postage included).

PRAISE REPORTS FROM THE GWEA FACEBOOK PRAYER GROUP
“Ah, Lord God! Behold, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for you” (Jer. 32:17). With “God, all things are possible” (Matt 19:26). What an exciting time to serve Jesus and to be involved in ministry (Rom. 8:28). If God can use a donkey to speak to get His message heard (Num. 22:22-28), how much more will he use present day scientific know-how such as the internet and social media to serve His purposes? It is no secret how much the internet has impacted our society today. Based on statistics, "almost 4.48 billion people were active internet users as of October 2019, encompassing 58% of the global population." That amounts to 4,480,000,000 people who have access to our Gospel message on our website at any given time of the day. Also as internet usage continues to grow, more and more people are using the internet to post their Prayer Requests and share their Praise Reports. People are being prayed for daily; they are receiving healings, answers to prayers, and having all kinds of needs met. We invite you too to participate in our online ministry by joining our Facebook Prayer Group at www.facebook.com/groups/gweaprayergroup/. (Click on JOIN group.) Read just some of our online Praise Reports from last month below:
"A heartfelt thank you to your prayer group. I’m pleased to report that Baby Ava is thriving and surpassing doctors' expectations. Born September 8 weighing 1.3 lbs Ava is now over 6 lbs. Last week her retinopathy of prematurity was stage 3 and she was sent to Sick Kid’s Hospital for assessment in preparation for treatment. Upon assessment this week her eyes have improved to Stage 1 and she is doing better than expected. Baby Ava is a special miracle, and I am very grateful for answered prayers. Proud Nana Karen” (J. Baker)
“Well thank you all for your prayers regarding my Aunt Mick/Maureen. My Mom (born again Christian) just visited with her and was able to pray with her to receive Jesus as Saviour. My aunt recently and peacefully passed away but now rests in His loving arms tonight and is walking the Road to Glory.” (E. Newland)
“A few months ago, I had asked prayer for a Pentecostal pastoral couple out west who had adopted a little boy from Ghana. Though all the paper work was completed correctly and approved, the CDN Government held up the process for almost two years. The parents (the mom who has MS) had to take turns going to be with their son in Ghana. Even with the Christian M.P. going to bat for them nothing seemed to be happening and Mom’s MS was flaring up. Finally the Dad, Mom, and son are now home in Canada. Praise God. Thank you for praying.” (J. Anderson)“THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO ADD TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD (MK. 16:15)
Again a heartfelt thank you to all our GWEA partners. Last year because of your prayerful and financial help, we have seen more ministry, more Salvations, Baptisms of the Holy Spirit, healing, deliverance ministry and answers to prayer than in previous years. Our success is the result of those of you who have caught Gordon’s vision to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to the whole of creation” (Mk. 16:15). We are excited about what Jesus is going to do in 2020! Jesus is better than His word; He’s the only one who we can trust to follow through on all of His promises all of the time.
Paul had a vision of a man from Macedonia who had said, “Come to Macedonia and help us” (Acts 16:9). I’m inviting you to do the same in our ministry. “Come and help us” get people saved and ready for the great wedding feast. Each year I receive numerous emails, letters and phone calls from people all over the world asking for help. People are just waiting to get saved, and the fields are still “white for the harvest” (Jn. 4:35-38). Our ministry would not be possible without your help – it allows us to accept invitations as we are able. And your financial support also helps us prepare ministry workers who are called to come along aside us. This year we eagerly await the exciting ministry of the “Signs, Wonders & Miracles” that God has prepared for us. “Come and help us” add to the Kingdom of God in 2020!
In supporting our ministry with your financial gifts, “God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (2 Cor. 9:8). This means that every Salvation, every Baptism of the Holy Spirit, every healing, every miracle, every deliverance is credited to you because of your partnership with Gordon. Please continue to be a “cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7) and prayerfully ask Jesus how you can contribute.
