This past month has been a rather exceptional one. Not that every month so far hasn’t held its own eventful surprises! I do believe, however that we were able to witness first hand, a significant event of history making in the life of TBN worldwide!
TBN USA, under the leadership of Dr. Paul Crouch with his son and daughter in law. Matt & Lauri Crouch, hosted a TBN Worldwide Event in Israel. Jenny and I were privileged to represent TBN Africa along with just over 200 fellow Africans who joined us on this tour. TBN Russia and their supporters were also amongst the many nations represented, including many of Pastor Joseph Prince’s supporters from Singapore. Joseph Prince spoke at the three main events that took place over the tour and was a tremendous blessing to all who had the privilege of hearing him preach. What a wonderful tour it turned out to be and of course, we couldn’t have been more proud of our African tour groups who wholeheartedly took hold of every moment with great enthusiasm and obvious appreciation.
I do believe that once again, Africa was able to make a noticeable mark on the worldwide history charts concerning the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What a joy to be able to represent our continent in the heart of the Holy Land itself! If you haven’t yet been to Israel, we would like to personally encourage you to sign up as soon as possible to be a part of one of our TBN tours to Israel. I can assure you, it will be well worth your effort and time. Jenny and I have tailor made the tours to give you the maximum advantage of seeing and experiencing the biblical sites around the Land of the Bible.

So if you are a pastor and you’d like to tour Israel with us, please sign up as soon as you can!

Just the other day I came across a scripture that caused my spirit to soar and I would like to encourage you with it today. It’s found in Malachi 3:6-18;
“Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name. 17 And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him. 18 Than shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who does not serve Him.”
Did you know that every time you share from your heart the goodness or faithfulness of God, it is record and brought before God Himself. It stands as a written tribute to your account. That’s right; it’s like a legal document stating that your good report concerning the character of God has put you in a position where the Lord Himself promises to publicly recognise you as His own treasure. He promises to protect you as His very own. So never think that your words of praise and appreciation towards your God spoken to another, counts for nothing or is lost to that moment in time. According to the word of God, it is recorded in the book of remembrance, to be recognised for eternity! And because of your shameless declaration of God’s goodness, He promises to honour you before all creation in return. Your personal word of testimony about the true character of your God will also allow people to discern your heart as one that serves and loves the Lord. The fruit of your lips will pave the way for good standing before God and man.
May you be encouraged to constantly proclaim the goodness and faithfulness of your God at all times!
We love and appreciate you so much
God’s richest blessings
Pastor Andre & Jenny
