Report From The Tower
Hebrews 9:26 “For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”
The last time the world ended was on April 3, 33, when Jesus of Nazareth put an end to the former world and age, and ushered in the church age, by the sacrifice of himself
Now, 2000 prophetic years have passed since that date. Sometime in mid July, 2004, the 2000 prophetic year milestone was reached. Two prophetic days have passed since the world last ended, and again, the world has reached another end.
I ministered in Kenya in September, and fire came forth from my hand on the second day of the new Hebrew year, which has been known as the first day of the days of awe for generations. I knew at that moment that something incredible had happened: something had changed.
Remnant groups met in October, and God sealed some. Jesus Christ appeared to me and others. Prophecy has gone forth to warn of the commencement of the wrath of God upon the Earth, and upon a church that is indistinguishable from the world.
Then, in December, that wrath commenced.
Yes, everything we have seen in the last year has been an indication that, once again, the world has ended. We have now entered into a new world; a new age.
Now, God will restore the remnant, and will bring in a new age. This present world has ended, and has not known it: yet. Satan has prepared too. The final conflict has begun. All that can shake and be shaken in this present world will now shake and be shaken.
Just as it was in 33 AD, the world is unaware that it has ended. Priests continued their animal sacrifices in Jerusalem for another 37 years, unaware that their world had ended with the death of the Galilean upon that cross. Half the world is involved in a Catholic funeral orgy, and the other half is either indifferent to God, serving false gods or is chasing after money and prosperity. This present world is not aware of it, but it has come to its’ end.
We have now reached the final day of the Hebrew religious year. Tomorrow, the Hebrews mark the new year commencement of the month of Nisan. Passover will follow in a couple of weeks.
Now God will raise up that remnant. Now, the sons of God will be revealed, and established.
The world has ended, and it now begins anew. This will not come as men have expected it. We do not know or understand very much, except that we need to sit humbly at the feet of our master, and become as little children.

MISSION PLAN FOR April 24, 2005 to June 10, 2005
Randy Mckee (Watchmen Prophets Assembly leader from Oregon) and I are going on mission together. The plan has been set, and the tickets are purchased. Now, all we have to do is coordinate with the Kenyans who pick us up at the airport. It seems they have trouble figuring out what day we arrive.
On the last trip, they had thought that I was arriving one day earlier than actual. I just received email from David Walukhu today, and he was again, mistaken in his understanding, except that this time, he thinks we will arrive two days earlier than actual. I guess those fellows like to hang around the airport.
Randy and I are excited about the propects of ministering together, in three African nations, for more than six weeks. We realize that there are more signs than you can shake a stick at that the day of the Lord is at hand, but we also believe that God is going to allow his remnant to prosper, and to carry out the great commission as times grow tougher and tougher. I expect, by faith, that God will bring us there and bring us back safely.
David Walukhu (African Mission Coordinator) has, once again, been doing great work in coordinating our steps. The plan is for ministry in the following places:
.............Misikhu, Western Province, Kenya, where we will hold an outdoor evangelistic crusade for five days. I preached in a church there on my last day in the Western Province during the last trip. The people were dancing and praising the Lord so exuberantly, that they kicked up a tremendous dust cloud in the mud floored church.
............Kampala, Uganda, where we will hold an outdoor evangelistic crusade for six days, in conjunction with Friends of Christ Ministries and Pastor Emmanuel Lubuulwa.
............Chepsaita, Western Province, Kenya, near Mount Elgon, where we will hold an outdoor evangelistic crusade for five days. I travelled there on my first trip to Africa back in September. It is a very small place, with no electricity. It is an hour from "civilization". In the past, it has been very "hard" ground for other ministries, SO PLEASE PRAY. Chwele was hard ground before we reached there too, and God gave a great harvest too. Chepsaita is 45 minutes West and North of Chwele.
............Bujumbura, Burundi, where we will hold an outdoor evangelistic crusade of an undetermined length at the present time.
............Kittui, Eastern Kenya. This is in somewhat of a questionable status right now. I had hoped to be arranging for the drilling of a water well in Kittui right now, but the money has not come in yet to do the job. I really cannot do an outdoor evangelistic crusade in that place, where people walk five hours for water, unless I deal with the need for water first. We have the geological survey, and we have purchased the permit to drill. Now, all we need is the $12,500 to drill the well.
................Nairobi, Kenya. There is a plan in the works for an evangelistic crusade on the edge of Kibera Slum. I am excited about this. While in Nairobi with brother Chris, we will no doubt travel around to many rural churches.
As usual, my team in Kenya begins to get worried because God always seems to provide financially at the 11:59 hour. I am trusting that all our needs will be met, as they have been in the past.
Randy and I have purchased our air tickets. My cost was about $1,200 and his was $1,500. We are flying together from Miami, to Amsterdam, and then on to Nairobi.
Previous experience has taught me that my expenses, including the monies that I give to orphans and the poor, usually amount to $2,500 per week when I am there, ministering in the crusades.
You might wonder what we spend the money on? Well, they buy lumber and build the platforms that we preach and praise from. Posters and handbills are printed for each event, and we economize as much as possible by printing them all in Eldoret, Kenya, where David Walukhu can make the best bargain.
We also buy food for the participants and ministers in the conference, and we have to rent bed rolls for the workers who will stay the entire time and watch over the equipment. Then, we have gasoline and car rental costs, as well as costs for renting sound systems.
We stay in private homes, for free, whenever possible. We never pay hotel bills during these events. So you can forget any ideas you might have about luxury accomodations for Randy and I. I have stayed in homes without electric power or running water.
God is my supply. He has miraculously sent me on two of these trips. I have had no money to do it, but he always provides, from somewhere. It has been miracle after miracle.
I have been noticing that TBN is on a financial stampede to shake every last dollar out of their viewers. I won't do that to you. But please, if God puts a burden on your heart for Randy and I, and you want to help with the evangelism, water wells or with the support for the more than 500 orphans that we help there, we need your support and help. Both of us are walking on the water again with this trip. Our eyes are on Jesus.
Please do not assume that because Randy and I do not write long messages about financial giving and support that we have no need. We do have need, but we trust the Lord, and we trust each of you to hear His voice, and then, to please obey, for your benefit and ours.
Once again, I thank everyone who has helped with the previous two missions. God bless and keep you one and all.

My Africa Wish List Is As Follows:
Project #1-$100,000-For 100 water wells, beginning at Kittui. I am told we will have to drill 200 wells to develop 100 producing wells. This money will purchase drilling equipment and a large truck to carry it in. The first well in Kittui can be done for $15,000. We have already completed the geological survey, and we have obtained the drilling permit.
Project #2-$5,000-Two, 250 person event tents-cost $2,500 each. I have already visited the tent manufacturer in Nairobi. We need this tent for holding bigger crusades in Kenya.
Project #3-$7,500-We need to purchase a sound system for use in the Kenya crusades. I am planning on being in Africa, four times per year. We rented the sound system for the three events we just held. We anticipate holding bigger events, and we will need a more powerful system. With the sound system, we need a generator to power it.
Project #4-$10,000-A truck for David Machimbo Walukhu, my missions coordinator, in Kenya. Right now, David has no vehicle, and travels by bus. I am shopping for one this week, for dual use with the water project. We have found a 2002 Toyota Hi Rider, for 850,000 Kenyan Shillings. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ITEM.
Project #5-$5,000-Completion of the stone wall that will totally encircle Sowetto Academy. This is really needed to keep people from using walkways right through the middle of the school and orphanage. Right now, the wall is about 25% complete.
Jesus says, "you have not because you ask not". I say, Lord Jesus, I Am Asking!
