February 29 – March 9, 2012
We departed Phoenix on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 in the morning and after stops in Chicago and Frankfurt Germany, arrived in Johannesburg, ZA Saturday, March 2, 2012 at about 8:00 A.M.
Friday, March 2, 2012We had a short fellowship with Pastor Joel who picked us up from the airport and then we rested at the Aviator Life Hotel near the airport. We were picked up for the 4:00 P.M. service and Brother Carlos Torres preached a very good message. He was invited to speak on Sunday morning at another church and accepted the invitation since there would be no Sunday morning service at the convention.
Saturday, March 3, 2012We again had service at 4:00 P.M. where Bernabé N.C. García, Jr., preached. I spoke on whatever the Lord put in my mouth. The pastor's present were very happy.
Pastor Nsimba Jacques invited Brother Montoya and I to speak for him Sunday morning. Brother Montoya chose to stay and rest for Sunday afternoon when he would be ministering.
Sunday, March 4, 2012I spoke at Pastor Jacques church at 10:00 A.M. for about an hour preaching on Because I Said So. How that God does things because he said so. We are perfect because He said so. The sun exists because He said so...
Pastor Jacques and I discussed a future trip into ZA and the Congos. We agreed that I was to return the first two weeks of July to spend a week in ZA to visit Johannesburg, Durban and Capetown, and then to have a week in the Congos.
After service I had some fruit and then after a short rest I was taken to Pastor Joel's church for the final convention service.
Brother Themba Masanga preached the first sermon and did an outstanding job. He is from Pretoria, the capital city of ZA. I would love for him to speak at our convention in Phoenix. He is full of power, and authority.
Brother Montoya Preached the second sermon and was powerful as usual. He prayed for sick afterwards. Many people received their healing.
Monday, March 5, 2012Brother Jacques picked us up and we went to a hospital to pray for a brother who had suffered a stroke and was suffering from left side paralysis.
While there I told him what his condition was caused by.. . After we left the room Brother Jacques asked me if I knew that I had exactly told them the truth. I told him no, I did not know. I just spoke as God had me speak... I thought I was just breaking the ice being humorous.
I did not eat that day as they stopped to eat at McDonald's per Dr. Montoya's request. We had already eaten at McDonald's three times and I could not stomach it anymore. I ate fruit that evening.
Tuesday, March 6, 2012Brother Montoya purchased a ticket for me to go to Durban, ZA where I was greeted very happily by Pastor Frances. We went home, I rested and then he took me to a family's house to speak a short sermon for the people who were gathered at a wake for Sister Kodi who had passed away Monday. Afterwards we went home to eat and rest.
Wednesday, March 7, 2012I spoke again at the home at a pre-funeral service and then they took the body to the funeral chapel where Brother Frances brought the message.
At the cemetery Brother Joseph (Pastor Frances' son) and did a good job. We went home to rest for service.
At the evening service I spoke on testimonies that the Lord had been doing during my trips since the last time we had seen each other. The people and the pastor were very happy to hear of the things God had been doing.
Pastor Frances wishes that I return with at least a week so that he may take me to the other churches that he pastors There are now four churches, three solid ones and one that is just starting up.
Travel back homePastor Frances woke me at 6:00 A.M. to take me to the airport where I took my flight arriving in Johannesburg at 11:00 A.M.
Brother Montoya was already there at the airport and we stayed there until our flight leaving at 7:00 P.M. arriving in Frankfurt Germany at 5:00 A.M. we were there about three hours and then took a flight to Newark, NJ, U.S.A. I am currently on that flight. We should arrive in the U.S.A. About noon. We will then take a 4:05 P.M. flight to Phoenix and shoud be arriving home at 7:37 P.M. on United Airlines.
God bless you,
