Abundant Life Crusades
Tony and Marge Abram have been sharing God's Good News for over 64 years!

Vol 52 #3

We have been busy about doing our Heavenly Father’s Good Business.  His business is great, good and the best business.  I cannot help but think of the Words of Jesus when He was only 12 years of age and asked where He was and what He was doing?

"And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?" Luke 2:49 (KJV)

In addition to our missionary ministry of preaching the Word and winning souls, we have helped to add a couple more new buildings for local churches. #185 is in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Russia, which now will bring a new total of 185 buildings we have acquired for local churches in the former USSR. The other is in Mutiti, Uganda, East Africa.

We have not kept a total of the buildings we have helped to purchase or build for local churches in India, Asia, Africa, Central and South America, etc. as we have done in the former USSR for the past 25 years.  This Building #185 is in in the Russian Far East. It is a city on the Amur River built by the Communist Youth League (Komsomol). 

It has a population of 300,000 and is about 3,900 miles from Moscow. They required about $4,000.00 US dollars to finish the church.  The bricks were salvaged from other buildings. (used, taken out, cleaned and reused) Church members have been doing the work with whatever resources they could find.  They are using the building as it is finished inside and have about 350 people.

Evangelist Walter Zygarewicz of Global Vision and life long friend and fellow worker, gave them $1000.00 toward this, trusting the Lord to provide the rest.  When Brother Zygarewicz shared this need with us, we immediately sent $1,500.00, which we were going to use on an upcoming mission. (We were trusting God to replenish it in time, which He did. Praise the Lord!). 

Since that time, we also sent the other $1,500.00 that was needed and that God has provided through folks just like you to complete this House of Worship for these people of God.  God bless you who have shared in this with your prayers, faith and support. The church building in Africa is located in Mutiti, Uganda, We invested $2,000.00 for the building in Mutiti, Uganda, East Africa.

The brethren asked for help in this stage of building.

Although, over the years we have helped plant churches and helped provide places for worship in many countries on the continent of Africa.  This is not our first building in the country of Uganda, East Africa.

David Walker of the David Walker Ministries (A ministry we work through in Africa, India and Sri Lanka) sent us this info that touched our hearts: The church building, is 80ft by 32 ft and this we started right from the ground level to the foundation. Now we have reached the roofing level as you see in the photos attached!

The engineer has given me the actual cost of the sheet metal roof which will cost about more or less $2000.00.

Working on the roof and completing the sides.

The congregation here are also trying their level best to raise more funds to have this building completed. But the joy of the new building is here and all long to see you soon.”

So, with God’s help, we have sent the $2,000.00 so this building is completed as you read this.

"We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain."
2 Corinthians 6:1

Praise the Lord! The roof is finished.
Now it’s easier to worship in the sun and rain.

Tony and Marge.

God Bless you. Your missionary evangelists. Tony & Marge Abram.
