    THE CRAIG HOBBS EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION 





 


Our February trip will consist of 8 “Evangelism Conferences”. Each conference will host an estimated 250 people representing about 30 churches who are Pastors, Pastors’ Wives, and Church Leaders. This means that we will train approximately 2,000 in February representing about 250 churches. Each conference will cost an average of $925 for a total of $7,400, which means we will spend $3.70 per person to feed them 4 meals, give them a 12 page booklet that we have written, and provide a place for them to sleep at the conference site. They in turn, will take the booklets, notes, and teachings back to their churches to train the entire church in evangelism. From there, the churches will establish “Evangelism Teams” to reach out in their area.


To date, we have received $4,100 toward this budget. $37 sponsors 10 people and $370 will provide for 100 people. Of course, we will also hold 6 “Evangelism Conferences” in June with similar needs.


We will also purchase 250 Bibles at $11 each for a total of $2,750. We have received $900 of this leaving $1,850.


The other pressing item is the crusade in Lusaka, Zambia in June. The budget of $16,253 seems large, but if 35,000 people attend, we are spending 50 cents per person to hear the Gospel. $6,800 has been received for this leaving $9,453.




 Wife’s Wisdom



“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples in deed; And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you set you free.” (John 8:31)  I can personally testify to this! The more I am in His word and draw closer to Him, the more freedom I experience. He set me free from so much bitterness and past memories, and  He is still setting me free daily. He has shown me who I really am in his eyes!!!


I am so thankful for my Bible, the Living Word of God. It offers comfort, guidance, promises, answers to life’s questions, and amazing stories that teach us truths and guide us in living every day. Thank you, God, that I am blessed to have access to Your Word when so many in this world still do not have that privilege.tories that teach us truths and how to face every day.

As we transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas to the New Year, it is fitting to consider all that we have for which to be thankful. If you are like me, you take a lot of things for granted. Let’s all count our blessings. Don’t forget to thank God for little things as well as big things. He is great all the time!

Flame of Fire Ministry


 


FLAME Of FIRE OUT REACH REPORT (from Edington, one of our nine FOFM Evangelists): As do all who were sent, I now present my trip. It was unique in itself. Chikondi Hara helped to make it that way. On Monday, 21st October, we started off for Chifu in Mbewa. Upon arrival, the person we were contacting with couldn't show up. I gathered my team to pray for a miracle. The miracle came when God gave us somebody who was once a Baptist in another place. We began heart to heart ministry, walking from one hut to another. After 20 minutes we met this man on his way home from his garden, Edison Chagala. After sharing the gospel with him, he accepted the good news.


That was just the beginning. We, altogether, had 170 souls make professions of faith in Christ. Since there is no church in this place, we will have follow-up soon, and then they will start meeting on Sundays.
