WE ARE WORKERS TOGETHER IN THE
RIPEN HARVEST FIELDS -
VOL. 54 No. 9
Over the years God has
provided and privileged Marge and I to have worked with many
ministries, some well known but more of those precious
ministries unknown by man but well known in the halls of
There have been some that
our ministry has influenced their callings and ministries.
It is not possible to tell of all of them but we thought in
this months and next month’s newsletter we would share of
one family, the Heimsoth family from Indiana.
Marge and Michelle
We will have Missionary Evangelist
Michelle Heimsoth (photo left with Marge) share in Part One
Report and next month we will continue with the report of
the rest of the family and their ministry.
We have counted it a great blessing
where we have had a positive influence in lives that have
taken up the Cross of Evangelism knowing that the:
Supreme task of the
Church is the Evangelism of the World.
The following is the testimony of
Missionary Evangelist Michelle Heimsoth.
"We praise God for Missionary
Evangelists Tony and Marge Abram and for the mighty way He
has used them in His kingdom and in our own lives.
I can personally say I cut my teeth on
their missionary stories from my early childhood and dreamed
to someday grow up to be just like them.
Only I was much too shy to imagine
ever singing or preaching, so the most I could hope was to
possibly work in their office someday, helping to handle
their correspondence, etc."
one day she would replace Mother Abram as our Office Manger
and Secretary, but Mother Abram God did not retire until she
was 95 years if age, so she had to fulfill God’s calling and
she launched into her ministry by faith.)

"God did answer that prayer to some
extent when Brother Tony invited our church to handle the
response he received to his broadcast on Radio Africa.
For many years then, during my teenage
years and into my early twenties, our church, including
church youth, would take one Sunday afternoon a month to
respond to all of the letters and to package Bibles and
literature to send to Africa."

(We thank God that
the church sent over 4,000 packages of tracts, my books,
tapes, Bibles, New Testaments and helps to Africa and
answering correspondence while paying for most of the
postage as well. We and heaven thank them for their

school, I found a church-planting organization working in
the former Soviet Union and teamed up with them for a
two-year missionary stint in Russia."
time Michelle learned the difficult Russia language both to
read, speak, preach and even interpret the Russian Language.
Her ability reminded Marge and I of Evangelist Walter
Zygarewicz when he was 19 years old and began working in
Bolivia, South America with us.)
"Upon my return home to America in
1996, some of the pastors from Malawi, Africa, were writing
to Brother Tony Abram, inviting him to teach them more of
We passed the invitations along, but
Brother Tony responded that God wasn't leading him to Africa
at that time. We forwarded his response to Malawi, upon
receipt of which the pastors wrote back to say: "Then YOU
With much prayer, God confirmed to us
that we were indeed supposed to go.
So, for the past 21 years, my Dad and
I (and others from the church, including my younger sister
Martha the past five years) have been traveling every year
to Malawi, Africa, to teach and encourage the church,
inviting pastors and leaders of all denominations
challenging them to believe and to live the truth."
Michelle and Martha in
Preaching and winning souls
"I honestly feel that God created the
mission field to "save" the missionary, because surely
Africa changed my life!
God continues to open my eyes to the
fullness of His call and has shown me that, shy or not, I
can open my mouth and He will fill it, whether singing or
preaching or praying for the sick or prophesying.
He is God of the impossible, and He
wants to do impossible things through us. God has used
Brother Tony and Sister Marge in other ways as well, to
influence the direction and calling of my family
Truly God has given Brother Tony and
Sister Marge many children, grandchildren, and great
grandchildren, more than the sand of the sea!! May a double
portion of their mantle rest upon us!!"
Michelle, Martha and their
father Pastor Heimsoth with three Malawi, Africa pastors and
Michelle & Martha in Moscow
continue next month with a little more from Evangelist
Michelle next month including some from her sister Martha
and some facts on Pastor Mike Heimsoth with they calling and
ministry in Africa, Japan and the former USSR. Also our
thoughts as well.)
We thank God for the words written but
we give all the honor and glory to God. He alone is worthy
for the great things done in the Heimsoth Family and in
God bless you and yours. We love
you in Jesus Name.
Your missionaries to the world,
and Marge Abram
