Rejuvenation and Transformation for Aglow in Philippines August 2010

Hi, I am Lois Koss, a transformation team leader.  It is amazing the wonderful people you meet on the teams and overseas. My first trip to the Philippines was June 2007. I wanted to go to the Philippines since my daughter had been on a short term trip there 24 years earlier. Now it was my turn! It was amazing how God put the team together with women from all over the U.S. Most of us did not know each other, but it soon seemed as though we had been friends forever! We were invited by the Church Multiplication Coalition in the Philippines. We preached at concerts, went to mayor’s offices, visited schools and evangelized and prayed for healing in the market place. We saw thousands come to the Lord and thousands healed. Over 100 Bible studies were established during the time we were there.

In March of 2008, I was co-leader for a team to the Island of Negros in the Philippines. Again, we went into the schools, prisons, and a hospital to share the Gospel. One high school had 3000 students. Everywhere we went there was such openness to the Gospel. I spoke at one of the concerts with an estimated crowd of 800 people. I was later informed by one of the pastors that every person had come forward to receive Jesus as their Savior. I often shared my testimony of how the Lord healed me of epilepsy years ago, when I was unable to travel far from home by myself and now I had traveled 10,000 miles away from home to share the love of Jesus!

Pastor Tessie Felicio the National Aglow President of the Philippines, has asked me to come in August of this year with a team to help train and minister to the Aglow women as well as pastors/leaders of churches. This will be a teaching/training trip with conferences and retreats in three different regions….Laguna, Negros and Davao City.

Will you join us in this life changing experience? Have questions? Contact Lois Koss at loisemk@sbcglobal.net

TRUST HONOR AND HOLY

March 13th, 2010 1 comment

Numbers 20:12  “But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.”    Trust equals honor and honor equals God lifted up as holy in the sight of humankind!  Father God, we choose to trust you, honor you and be ambassadors of your goodness so others will see you as God.

Psalm 56:3, 4  “When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid.  What can mortal man do to me?” 56:9b “…By this I will know that God is for me.”

Uganda Team June 2010

March 11th, 2010 No comments

UGANDA:

“…the power of God swept over me and I prophesied revival had been birthed in Uganda. I shook violently. Like Isaiah in chapter 6, I was “undone”… God’s presence came with incredible power and with the fear of the Lord. Some were silent, others wept, a loud shout of birthing went through the tents… Over and over the Holy Spirit spoke to me, “Revival isabout the power of My presence before it is about the presence of My power.”  (Catherine Brown – Elijah List – February 2010)

God is up to something BIG in Uganda, and we have the opportunity to be part of it! Having been to Uganda twice, I have seen with my own eyes the hunger of the people for the Living Water of God’s Word and thousands of children eager to know God’s love.

In 2008 as I (Fran) stood in front of 427 pastors and leaders from Kyenjojo area in Uganda, the prophetic utterance came forth: “…Why not here?  Why not now?  Why not you!” We traveled with Aglow National

Leader Imelda Bwayos to Wanale’ Summit, where we shared Communion then praised the Lord with all our might, blowing shofar and prophesying over Uganda from that high place.

In 2009 we hiked up the side of Mt. Elgon to some remote villages that had NEVER seen a missionary before, delivering the message the God loves them and cares about them that are lowly and humble.  One night, it was pouring down rain.  But instead of scattering, the people pressed in so hard, desperately wanting to hear the Word of God being preached!  Many received salvation and healing.

We went to school after school, orphanage after orphanage, where the

children (some Christian, many Muslim, a few Hindi, and who knows what

all else) were so curious to see the foreign missionaries share the Gospel through Bible story enactments, and the message of Christ through the Evange-Cube.  We literally saw hundreds of children raise their hands to accept Jesus into their hearts and say a prayer of salvation.

And we prayed with teen girls who had been rescued from a life of actual slavery, sex and labor,some already HIV+, a couple with babies, all with little or no education.  As we prayed, the Spirit was faithful to give words of encouragement to them through us, so they KNOW God sees them and cares.  One girl we met in Wakite had run away from home to escape circumcision.  We were able to bless and encourage her.  There is no endto the opportunities. In the jail, we saw the hard women melt in the presence of the Lord, and become willing to let us pray for them.

The Bible says, “Many are called but few are chosen.”  Will you choose

to be chosen?                     Because God is calling again.

June 5-19, 2010 an Aglow Transformation Team will again put feet on the ground in Uganda to spread the Gospel, to teach the hungry hearts, to encourage the tired and weak, to minister to the captives both in hospital and jail.

WILL YOU JOIN US as we co-labor with sisters/brothers there in the name

of Jesus Christ? “Here I am, Lord, send me.”

Listen in your heart.  Is God calling to you?

Welcome to the new Transformation blog!

March 10th, 2010 4 comments

Outreaches are all about God’s transformation of people, of communities, of nations. When Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world…” He was talking about us, the bearers of His image, taking news of His transforming power to people who did not yet know it. He was talking about radical, down-to-the-bone-marrow change in the nature of human beings. That’s transformation.

On this blog you’ll read about and see stories (through video) of our trips — as they happen — sometimes within hours of the actual event as we post reports. Sign up for our RSS feed to keep up on the latest details about our trips.  And, If you’ve been yearning to put yourself on the edge of your comfort zone and be part of an Aglow outreach, this is your chance! Just send me an email: Janet Mangum at janetmangum@aglow.org.
