“Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”Luke 6:38 (NASB)
I was thinking about a theme for our new year here at Tweeting God’s Love Ministries and the idea of Generosity came to mind. Then someone tweeted me that South Africa is Celebrating the Joy of Salvation in 2016. I’m not sure how much of the continent of Africa is celebrating this, but seems like we should join them, whoever they are!
And that works well with my concern about generosity, especially toward the missionaries of Africa who join us weekly sharing their leadership, wisdom, and prayers as active members of our Leadership Team on Twitter. So my challenge to you this year is to experience the “Joy of Your Salvation” through generosity to our amazing missionary leaders. I am asking for monthly donations which I will divide among these wonderful men of God. I hasten to tell you, not one of these missionaries has EVER ask for money. Quite the contrary, they continue to bless us all each day and inspire us with their selfless FAITH! We pray for them continuously, and they continuously assure us that God will provide all they need.
This is rare. Most missionaries who follow me on Twitter, begin with asking for support. That never happens with our missionaries, though they are in as much need. They come to minister to us and are grateful to be on our leadership team.
Let me introduce them to you…
Jenyo Omolehin ministers with us on Twitter from Tanzania. He and his wife, Bukky and 1YO Derrick live near Arusha where he also ministers and preaches at their local church.
Much of Jenyo’s time is spent traveling to minister, often many miles into rural parts of Tanzania. Many things about the abject poverty Jenyo sees break his heart, and the heart of God. His greatest wish is to get clean drinking water to the people he has come to love.
Jenyo came upon this little boy recently as he left his cup for the next time he gets thirsty. This puddle is his water throughout the day, as long as it is there.
On, yet another trip, Jenyo found this lady who was getting what little water she could find for her family!!
In our Twitter ministry, Jenyo is one of our most beloved Chat leaders. He is delightful and spreads the JOY of the Lord whenever he shows up. Inspite of the suffering he sees daily, Jenyo gladly gives of himself to bless us all. He even starts new chats and recruits more leaders to help TGLMinistries grow.
Next… I must introduce you to my dearest missionaries to Nigeria and République du Bénin.
Joseph and Peter left lucrative pastorates in the city to go into the rural areas of Nigeria and more recently, République du Bénin, to minister to the lost and train new Christian leaders throughout the region. They even travel into hostile areas to reach people who have never seen a Bible. They share an apartment with their wives and children…3 each ~ 6 children total.
Peter & Joseph’s wives run their mission school for the local children.
Peter and Joseph have led Bible Study chats weekly in Tweeting God’s Love Ministries, while they busily follow God as missionary leaders throughout their region for the last 4 years. During that time they have had their school blown away by storms, and still graduated both children and Ministry leaders.
It is so clear that all these missionaries and their families are making the world a better place by giving of themselves selflessly for the Lord. Scripture says that if you give to God, He will have others give to you.
LET”S BE THE OTHERS in 2016!!!
Let’s have the joy of knowing we are partners in these very good works. This is the genius of God’s plan for generosity. The more we give the more blessed we are?
How much am I asking for you to donate monthly? Anything from $1 to whatever God impresses you to give is what you should give. Please pray over this need and join us with as much as you can. I will be sure the money will get to Jenyo, Joseph, and Peter. Every dollar will go to supporting these missionaries throughout 2016. They freely give of themselve to us at Tweeting God’s Love Ministries. Let’s have some JOY in Generosity to them!
