Abundant Life Crusades
Tony and Marge Abram have been sharing God's Good News for over 58 years!


November 20th 2012: Tony & Marge Abram’s
50th Wedding Anniversary!
VOL XXXXVIX No. 11

It was early September that I drove into Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada as an Associate Evangelist for T. L. Osborn to precede and prepare his city-wide crusade, that I met Marge Kryzanowski.

It was my first service in a Slavic Church. She had recently graduated from Bible College and was Youth Leader in her church.  Since my first service was in the youth service, I met and talked with her.  I felt she was special and invited her to dinner a couple of days later. 

For the next 7 weeks all our dates were her going with me to one of my pre-crusade rally services I was preparing for the Osborn crusade.  A week before the crusade I asked her to marry me.  She was shocked, but felt it was God’s Will.

During the crusade, Daisy Osborn announced before thousands of people that Tony Abram did not only travel 3,500 miles to organize this great crusade, but he met his soul-mate and future bride.  We had planned to marry a couple months later in England where I was going to my next assignment, organizing  four crusades in England.

Tony & Marge love to share Jesus!

However, before I left, I traveled to Williams Lake (350 miles from Vancouver) to meet Marge’s family. It was there after preaching at her home church, that the pastor and family said “Why wait, get married before you leave.”

Two days later we were married in a church filled with Marge’s family and friends. They had prepared a lovely reception. After the ceremony they took me to the airport where I kissed Marge good-bye. It would be two weeks later that she would join me.

Cordoba, Argentina Crusade

Since that time we have traveled and ministered in over 130 countries of the world.  Though I had been doing the work of an evangelist for 3 years, this was the beginning of our soulwinning international ministry.

I believe just as Jesus sent them out two  by two with the message, God gave me Marge so we could do the Work of God together. Our ministry for the past 50 years has been SOUL-WINNING, MIRACLES AND MISSIONS. It has been a joy to lead thousands to Christ all over the world these past 50 years, teaching thousands the Word and imparting what we have learned in the ministry of Soul-winning to thousands of potential soulwinners.

At this writing, we thank God that we have been able to help purchase 182 buildings for local churches in the former USSR, not counting the many planted and built in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Of course we give God the Glory!  Without Him and His wonderful people like yourselves, we could not have accomplished this.  We thank God for the television opportunities in a number of countries, our world wide radio outreaches we did for a number of years, the thousands of books that were  written and translated in a number of languages, millions of tracts, crusades and hundreds of churches planted. We have endeavored and will continue to do our part in the commission of Jesus in preaching the Gospel to every creature.

For all the harvest, fruit, protection and provision, we give God all the Glory!  We have had unspeakable joy and yet there have be some very trying and difficult. We are reminded of the words of Paul in Philippians 4:11-13 (KJV):

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

We have slept in over 4,000 beds, eaten all kinds of food and traveled on every type of transport.

2 Corinthians 11:26 "In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren" - you will note that most of the photos we chose to share are of crowds and altar calls.

The reason is that Marge and my passion has been to win the lost to Christ. We believe that the nearest and dearest work of God is SOULWINNING. Some of the last words of Jesus are found in Mark 16:15 (AMP) "And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race]".

I was meditating the other day and thought about some of the prophecies given to God’s people in the Word. I thought about the promise to my great, great, etc. grandfather Abraham. Genesis 26:4 (KJV) "And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed" - what a great promise!

Then I thought how that Marge I were not blessed with any children of our own, but Has given us thousands of spiritual children all over the world.  As I was thanking God for them, I was reminded of the prophecy given by a late dear friend and minister, Pastor Lipton, of Dover, England in the 1980’s.  It was during a conference we were ministering in, that he prophesied that we would win a BILLION souls to Christ through our ministry. This is one prophecy I wanted to believe but had a difficult time to really see how this could come to pass, that we could win one billion souls (a thousand million).

Luke 18:27 (KJV) "And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God". I believe God showed me the answer. The prophecy said that we would win one billion souls through our ministry. Yes, we have led many thousands to Christ over the past 50 years that we cannot count.

However, it is nowhere near ‘One Billion.’ So the answer came to me that it is being fulfilled though all the ministries we have trained and supported over the years, even among some of the orphans we have supported. We pray daily for all the souls we have won and taught the Word of God to, that God would raise up the five-fold ministry through them.

Ephesians 4:11 (KJV) "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers"; I believe God is raising up soulwinners though the people we have won to Christ and that though them, there will be a BILLION won to Christ before He returns for His people. Praise God!

When we win a soulwinner, we move from the addition of souls to the multiplication of souls into the Kingdom of God. We look back over the 50 years of marriage and ministry God has given us together. All we can do is praise God for His faithfulness! Also for you, dear friends who have carried us with your prayers and faith. We truly are “Workers together with Christ.”

God bless you and yours.
Your forever friends and co-workers,
Tony and Marge Abram.
