THE CRAIG HOBBS EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION
You and your church can be a part of this! We need $35,000 for two crusades this summer.
2018 Report: We were in a total of 41 churches in USA in Oklahoma, Wyoming, Kentucky, and Indiana and 70 Specific places in Malawi, Tanzania, and Zambia.
What an amazing year we had in 2018, as the Lord opened new doors and performed great miracles. Not only did we see many people make professions of faith in Christ, but we saw churches planted, Christians revived and making new commitments, and others surrendering their lives to ministry. Included in those professing Christ as Savior are thousands in the southeastern parts of Africa. Craig made 2 trips to Africa with 3 teams. Hundreds were trained in evangelism to take the gospel to their own villages and to the surrounding villages. Also, many others have made professions of faith here in the United States through preaching and revival meetings, personal soul-winning, and other ministry opportunities. Craig and Traci have had more opportunities to do evangelism training in churches in the United States as well as the ongoing training in Africa. All glory to God for all that He does in and through us.
The work of the Lord is a
team effort among so many that make these things possible by going, giving,
praying, and sharing this ministry with others. To God be the glory for all
that He does!
Hebrews 12:14 “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.”
Peace is what God wants, and it is what we should desire. I strive to have peace in my family so much that I fail to have peace within. I pray for peace among all of us as a church so much that I am sick.
Recently, God showed me how to make an alter in my home – a special place to worship and commune with Him. I’ve done this in the past and have seen great things happen in my marriage and in my life, but somehow this time seems different.
I knelt at this special place and invited the Holy Spirit in my home to reside there and to take over whomever entered. And I will continue this. You see, this isn’t my home, this is God’s house and I’m only here to take care of it. When I let go and let God and ask for peace for everyone that enters, then I will see results in unity of our family, changed hearts, and changed minds in all of us. I pray for soft answers and kind words and love for each other. I pray for all that enter to take away from this home the love of the Heavenly Father, and to take peace and kindness to their homes, and to spread it wherever they go.
Do I fail and speak unkind words at times? Yes, but it’s a start, and I know through the blood of Jesus Christ, it will prevail in the end. Jesus made peace through the blood of His cross (Colossians 1:20).
Is there peace and unity and love in your heart, family, church, friends, and workplace? Spend time in your special place every day and invite the Holy Spirit into your home to bring peace.
From My Heart to Your Heart,
Flame of Fire Ministry
As our schedule begins to take shape for 2019, we still have open dates in March, April, and May, as well as the fall. Craig will be in Africa for the month of February and from mid-June to mid-July. He can receive text messages while he is there and there is not a charge to you.
Brother Craig will be preaching in three crusades in Africa in June and July, one of which is already mostly funded. He will also preach a revival meeting for the fourth consecutive year at “The Baptist Theological Seminary of Malawi” in February. Currently, there are six churches that send monthly support to “The Craig Hobbs Evangelistic Association” and five churches that send monthly support to “Flame of Fire Ministry”. These are now separate non-profit organizations. We praise the Lord for the way He meets the needs of the ministry!
Brother Craig will bring the opening message for the 9:00 OCOSBE breakout session on Tuesday, January 29th at the annual BGCO Evangelism Conference. Other state evangelists will also be singing and preaching including Charlie Keim and Bobby Smith.
We are approaching 2019 with great enthusiasm and expectation, and our expectations are from the Lord! (Psalm 62:5 “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him.”)
