“Two Hundred Cars to Single Mothers from $100”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Terry Osborne, Door of Hope Church, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia


When Terry received the $100 from his pastor, he went home and taped the money to his bathroom mirror as a reminder to pray and ask God what He wanted him to do with it. What came to him in time was a desire to provide transportation for a single mother in the local town of Launceston, Tasmania. He decided he would use his love of cars and mechanics to secure an older model vehicle...

“Not going hungry at Christmas”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Donna Webster, Toronto, Canada


I had an extraordinary desire to become a part of the KA when our pastor preached about it and called for volunteers. I was moved from the pew, not knowing how I could serve God in a creative way. The book was
handed to me, $100.00 and a letter of encouragement stating the three
rules of the KA. For three weeks I felt anxious, lost some sleep with thoughts of worry about my unknown task to use my talents and gifts to serve God through others in need. With prayer, persistence and perseverance enough was raised to feed 100 people a Christmas meal with all the trimmings. I felt light shining in my
face and energy because I realized that my prayer had been answered.

“Pennies from Heaven”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Todd Johnson, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, Menlo Park, CA


Todd Johnson of Menlo Park, an attorney with Jones Day in Menlo Park, knew what he wanted to do with his $100 after he heard Steve Haas of World Vision speak on the growing death toll in Africa due to AIDS.

Astonished and saddened by the huge, and growing, number of lives lost, Mr. Johnson decided to start a campaign that would help people in the United States understand the gravity of the AIDS epidemic. He decided to do this by showing people the scale of the number of lives lost since the beginning of the epidemic in the 1980s -- an estimated 25.4 million, according to UNAIDS -- and he decided to do it one penny at a time.

“Just The Beginning”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Rose Pauly, Grace Place Church, Berthoud, CO


Two days ago I sat in your seminar on Kingdom Assignment in Longmont, CO and you gave three of us $20. This $20 belonged to God, you said, and we were to pray over it and see how it could be multiplied and used for Him. The very next
day I took the $20 to our bible study group and at the end of the evening laid it out on the table, told everyone the story and asked that we pray as a group over this money and what God wished to do. Somehow all of us were sensing that this
was the proverbial mustard seed and God would see it grow into a mighty tree. At the end of our prayer time, a businessman came over to the $20, laid another $20 down and said, "I'll double this money. I'll also talk to everyone I know and
challenge them to keep doubling it. When this is doubled 10 times,I'll double it again." Then a sweet lady pushed her wheelc hair over to the table and laid down $9.90 (all she had in her wallet). She said, "I just feel God is doing something great and I want to be a part of it.". People were getting energized by what could be done to meet the needs in our community and just dreaming for the Lord! At the end of the evening, I walked over to the table to collect the money and found an envelope laying on top. There was no name on it, but when I opened it, I had
tears in my eyes as I counted 15 $100 bills. Who carries that kind of money to bible study?! Just further evidence of God's hand at work. In the first night the Lord's $20 had grown to $1549.90. God must have something AMAZING in mind.

Just the beginning of the STORY HE IS WRITING.

“Spreading The Gospel”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
John Clark, Lake Avenue Church, Pasadena, CA


I thought you might be interested in an update on my Kingdom Assignment and the continuing story of my entrusted $100. In the first round, we sent a little over $3,000 to a remote section of Pakistan to assist some believers who had gone there on faith, and with no support, to assist where they could after a serious earthquake. As a result of their going, there are now 600 new believers in a Muslim area where there was no Christian testimony. 30 of the new believers were selected for training in Karachi to become pastors to the 600 new believers, who were meeting in “House Churches”. The Gospel is spreading throughout the region. A Taliban soldier from the area came home on leave from the Afghanistan front, heard the gospel, and was saved. He went back to the front and shared with his friends and now there are 30 believers, all Taliban soldiers, who will lose their head if their conversion is revealed. Here’s the latest...after a terrible cyclone in the same region, 800,000 homes were destroyed. The same group of men have gone north again to see what they can do to help, and our Kingdom Assignment raised another $4,000 to assist them. As a result, the Gospel is being accepted by many, and the prayers and work of our missionary friends is being realized. Little is much when God is in it. I am grateful to God for allowing me in a very small way to have a part in this.

“The Guy Nextdoor”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Ruthie Seaburg, Grace Fellowship Church, Latham, NY

Shortly after I accepted the money, a wicked blizzard hit our town. That same night, the man who lived next door was working in his garage when the propane container he was using to heat the garage blew up and burned down the garage with him in it. Unfortunately, rescue efforts were hampered because of the blizzard and when help finally did arrive, the captain of the fire department had a sudden heart attack and died in front of the inferno, delaying rescue efforts even more. The man was severely burned all over his body and especially his face. It was imperative to get him to Westchester County Hospital to attend to his injury. As you can imagine there were multiple surgeries and skin graphs to get him back to a life of normalcy. During this time our small group, with their $100 continuing to multiply, decided to use the monies to clean up and renovate the attached rental to the garage for him to earn some income while he was recuperating. It was during this time of recovery the man accepted Christ and gave his testimony at the KA celebration Sunday. He said that the outpouring of love, concern and prayer is what got him through. This story has not only remained powerful in the life of the church but has affected me in a very special way. People all over need to experience a KA and not only feel challenged by what to do with the money but to see God’s power at work in all the results, both big and small.

"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Aliso Viejo Middle School, Aliso Viejo, CA

Kathryn’s small group of AVMS 8th grade girls ( Ellie, Alexandra, Kellie, Maddy, Morena, and Taylor) decided to band together to do their The Kingdom Assignment. In a nut shell, they began by collecting hotel size toiletries from friends and pairs of old jeans for their project. They then sewed the jeans into cute jean bags and fill them with bags of toiletries they had collected, along with a New Testament and another pair of jeans to wear. Their goal was to make 48 filled Jean bags and give them to young abused teenagers who are placed in foster care. It is their gift of love to each girl that enters the Olive Crest Program. Seems simple – A donated pair of jeans and toiletries..... But it can be life changing not only for those receiving these precious gifts, but for those who are doing the giving.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in faith and in purity.
1Timothy 4:12

"The Broken Rear Window”

Friday, June 5th, 2009

Shortly following being given his Kingdom Assignment, this brother looked at the van sitting across the street. The van had a broken rear window since he had moved in last December. Yet, even with temperatures below freezing, he watched his neighbor take her children to school in this van everyday. He wanted to do something to help her, but he was having his own financial difficulties.

When he and a friend decided to put their Kingdom money together “to do something really great for someone,” they prayed for God’s guidance in how to use the money. All the next day, he couldn’t stop thinking about the lady across the street with the broken window. He talked with his friend about it that day, and they decided that this would be their Kingdom Assignment.

A couple of days later, there was a new window in the van across the street with a very happy neighbor in the driver’s seat. She said, “I think maybe this is God’s way of telling me I need to go to church…”

"Help for the Homeless”

Friday, June 5th, 2009
Suzanne

“Suzanne” works in Ames, where she recently met a homeless man. God moved her to help him out, and this inspired her to use he Kingdom Assignment money to provide personal hygiene kits for people at homeless shelter in Ames and for needy persons in Marshalltown. She explains: “For our Kingdom Assignment, we took 10 hygiene bags to the homeless shelter in Ames. My husband thought we should take the bags directly to those in need, so we had a discussion about this. We didn’t personally know any homeless people and giving bags to them personally meant we would be talking to them, which meant a major step out of the comfort zone.

My husband suggested we give a bag to a man whose life was changed after the Swift raid and I agreed. After telling the man what our mission was, he offered many names of people who were not necessarily homeless, but definitely in need. The man’s wife led us to home after home of people hurting, desperate, and in need of a caring touch.

We have more bags to deliver and in the process of this assignment, I have seen great changes in the lives of everyone involved. My shy husband is now willing to talk to people and get out of his box. He is excited as he shares God’s love with others. He tells the recipients that we now have Spanish translators and radios so they can participate in New Hope’s worship services. I have a new set of “eyes” to see strangers and their problems with.” God is so good!

Colossians 3:15

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."


Scripture reminds us to be thankful for those who have been such a blessing in our lives.

During this Thanksgiving we are grateful to God for Him bringing us the blessing of you. May God richly bless your family during these Holydays!
