Pentecostals of Geneva Newsletter

Our Turning Point!

We send you greetings from Geneva in the mighty name of Jesus! We are having our first real cold snap of the year, with temperatures in the teens and high winds. But Friday night during our prayer meeting in our “upper room” we were sweating in the heat of exuberant worship, fervent prayer and the power of the Holy Ghost!

We had wonderful Christmas services, in a larger room with several visitors and a time of fellowship after service, which we cannot do often due to cost.

We spent the week between Christmas and New Year’s in Switzerland, visiting Sister Jutta’s sister and husband in Winterthur, then made a brief trip through the Italian part of Switzerland.

For New Year’s Eve we had a worship and prayer service that was powerful, and which, since a couple families could not join us due to being sick or not having transportation from outlying cities, we broadcast our service live on over the internet. We even had visitors from Austria watching in and worshiping with us! And while there were not very many in service that night, the power of God was thick in that room as we dedicated the coming year to the Lord as we prayed through midnight for our city, our country, and our church.   The next day we had our regular Sunday service, but an hour later where the Holy Ghost fell on everyone during prayer service!

We have had good, consistent services so far this year, with about 10 visitors over the last month.  We are excited that people are being drawn by the Holy Ghost and by the testimony of the saints! We have also prayed in unity with our churches worldwide in January following the Prayer UP of the WNOP—this was powerful!

Sister Jutta and I joined in a prayer meeting of all ministers of the German Speaking Nations (GSN) in N├╝rnberg, Germany in January. We experienced a powerful move of God confirming our direction and encouraging us onward in the vision of 100 churches in 10 years in our region!

We have begun, with Missionary Sascha Wey and his wife in Liechtenstein, to plan for the coming Apostolic Youth Corps week in July.  This will be a time of taking territory in Geneva, Lausanne and also in Vaduz. Please keep these preparations in your prayers!! In addition to this, we have established an evangelism team to expand our initiatives in Bible Studies, personal evangelism, and planning of events in Geneva.  We will meet again this week, and twice a week from now until July.  We believe the Lord is about to do something powerful and great in Geneva!!!

Prayer Requests and Financial Needs

Many movie cinemas in Geneva have closed. This is an chance for us to take back ground from the enemy, and to rent or even purchase one of these sites!! The sound of victory rings in Geneva! Please help this to become reality! 

Bible Studies and personal evangelism to reach the lost one at a time.
