Phil Tolstad & Steve Phelps families

At the service of a new church four received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Three new churches were planted in an area. Three churches from the area joined our church in fellowship and their pastors were baptized in Jesus' name. The church's members will soon be baptized as well. There are eight branch churches.

While teaching new pastors Apostolic doctrine in one area, eight committed to be baptized in Jesus' name as soon as their churches were also taught. The missionary traveled to one church and thirty-two were baptized including the pastor and eight received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The church was much too small for the crowd so one pastor moved outside to pray for those there. Three more received the baptism of the Holy Spirit outside the church and three received it in the waters of baptism. One pastor traveled home from the seminar and told his church about the correct way to be baptized. The missionary traveled to his church and thirty-four were baptized in Jesus' name including the pastor and his assistant.

One pastor started a new church and held an open air meeting to begin the church where fifteen received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and were baptized in Jesus' name including an Anglican pastor who is now training to be an apostolic pastor.

There was an outside service at one place where fifteen were baptized in Jesus' name and five received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The initial plan was just to meet to sign papers on land for a church building. Never lose an opportunity!

At a district seminar fifteen received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and eight were baptized in Jesus' name including two Trinitarian pastors.

In one district a pastor's wife was in the market with a friend when the friend's daughter came running to her mother to tell her that the other daughter had died at home. When they arrived home people were already preparing the body for burial. The mother asked the pastor's wife to pray and God raised the little girl back to life. The whole village was amazed at the power of God!

During the National Conference thirty-four received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and twenty-six were baptized in Jesus' name. Many of the group who were baptized were from a new church started only nine months ago.

Update Letter from Munich

We greet you in Jesus’ name from Munich!

It was a quick transition from our AMTC Bible School in March to our Gen-eral Conference in May! We wrapped up the loose ends from the AMTC with the excellent help from the regional site administrators, Br. Samuel Ackah in Geneva, Sis. Whitney Bateman in Vienna, Br. Vicente Mestre in Bern and Sis. Shannon Gardner in Fürth! We had a total of 39 students whom we recognized with 3 students who gradu-ated at the General Confer-ence in Nürnberg! This was a record and a major victory for Jesus in the German Speaking Nations.

In the weeks preceding the Gen-eral Conference we drove up from Munich to be with Bro. Scott and the church from Fürth to evangelize in Nürnberg (see photo, top), with flyers, singing, and intercessory prayer—as well as the occasional blowing of the shofar! In the organizing of the conference, after consis-tently high quotes for to rent a sound system, we decided to purchase one, moving quickly as a team to transport, test and install the system in the conference venue. This will make the field much more flexible in our choice of location and effective in our costs for years to come!

During General Conference in Nürnberg, we had a great move of God, in different ways each service. Bro. Art Wilson from Michigan preached an anointed and prophetic message that only God could have worked out. Bro. Wilson taught a men’s session and Sis. Wilson a women’s session the next morning, ministering wonder-fully in the power of the Holy Ghost. That night, Bro. Nathan Harrod preached a powerful healing service where 17 people were healed from everything from deaf-ness to back pain to Parkinson’s disease! Praise God! The next day, Bro. Juan Ne-gron and Bro. Harrod led a powerful youth service in worship (see left) and word! During the other services Bro. Lee Stoneking preached to the churches and the saints of the German speaking na-tions, giving insight and encouragement to everyone present, and several re-ceived the Holy Ghost! We were also honored to have Bro. Tuttle and Bro. Howell with us as well. This was a life-changing conference!

Since General Conference, we have begun to go out in Munich and vicinity evangelizing, handing out some newly updated tracts and put-ting up posters, matching a mailer we will be sending out this coming week. We are planning a special Pentecost service, which these promote, and are praying that the visitors that we have invited will have a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ! Please keep us in your prayers!

Nigerian Update

Dear Partners in Missions:

The Nigerian Church is experiencing explosive growth. The National Church had a 34% increase in constituents in 2013, growing from 7,835 members to 10,511.  How does it happen? Let me share a few testimonies of what God is doing.

Two Bible school students were invited to minister in a village church. At the end of the service they baptized 28 and 11 received the Holy Spirit.

One newly licensed pastor started a village church and baptized 31 people in one year.  They had no church building and no PA equipment, but that did not stop them. They worshipped under an old fashioned brush arbor.

One of our pastors went down to the river to baptize two people. While there, a man was giving swimming lessons to a group of people. The swim club took an interest in the baptism and began to ask questions of our pastor. A two hours of teaching, pastor baptized 21 including the swimming instructor.

A May 2013 enrollee at the Bible school received a revelation of One God and baptism in Jesus Name. He was baptized by the Bible school principal and then carried the message to his home church. To date he has baptized 9 pastors in his fellowship and 177 church members. He applied for and received a ministerial license in May 2014.

A Bible school student was asked to fill the pulpit at a denominational church while they searched for a pastor. The student baptized 53 people in eight months.

The Book of Acts proclaimed that “God adds to the Church daily such as should be saved.” It is clearly still happening in Nigeria.

Our continued thanks to all who have supported us over the years.  We also want to express our appreciation for all who took us on as a Partner in Missions on our recent deputation. Because of your faithfulness we were able to complete deputation in 7 months.

Yours for souls in Nigeria,
Gerry and Darla McLean
