About once a year I like to give you a chance to read just a few of the letters we receive from people around the world who are being saved, healed, and delivered through the teachings of God's Word that we send freely by every form of media possible. Your faithfulness to pray and send financial support enables us to let the people partake of the manna from heaven "free like water" by way of the articles and letters at the GCM website, audio streaming over the internet, teaching videos via youtube.com, and the CD's and DVD's we mail to them.
We recently had a ministry group from the Prayer Center here in Tulsa travel to Ghana and Uganda for three weeks of ministry. After they had ministered in Ghana, I received an email from a friend of mine who is a Pastor there. It not only reveals how the people were blessed by the ministry team, but also how your support is also sending the Word of God to Ghana (and all the world) by way of our media outlets. Here is his letter:
I trust that Sue and your good self are well by the mercies of God. As you may be well aware a team from the prayer centre was in Ghana last week. I met Rev Angie Peo when I attended the conference in 2007, and the following year she met my friend William who was attending his first conference. The relationship developed and the Lord led Angie to come to Ghana this year. The other members of the team are Doug and Lisa Zandstra, and Frances Wells . It was a great week of ministry during which many people experienced the ministry of the Holy Spirit in getting saved, healed and delivered.
I wanted to share something with you that should get you laughing. After announcing in my church that a team from Tulsa would be ministering in our Wednesday prayer meeting, a lady walked up to me after the service and asked me 'you have a team coming from Tulsa, I would like to find out if they are connected with a preacher by the name of Gary Carpenter?' I jumped at her asking, "How did you hear about Gary Carpenter?" She said a friend and I have been listening to his messages online and we have been blessed by his ministry. I told her the team was from the same church where you minister. I thought I would let you know how the Lord is using your ministry to touch lives all over the world. The team left Ghana today and is headed to Uganda for two weeks.
Please give my warmest regards to Sue.
As I am writing this letter, it is the week of our Power & Prayer Conference at the Prayer Center here in Tulsa. Daily I meet people who tell me they have been feeding on the free messages we have sent them for years. I met one lady yesterday who came all the way from Fiji. She said if the messages had not been made available for free, she would never have had the chance to hear them. They have changed her life so much for the better she said she had to attend this year's Conference. On the nametags people are wearing you not only see that they come from most of the states in the USA, but also from Canada, Africa, Ireland, Germany, the Arab Emirates, Brazil, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and many, many more.
Mat 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
When Jesus gave this command, the only way to "go ye" was to physically go. Sue and I are doing that physically as the Lord permits. But in the modern age we are able to "go ye" by means of technology much farther and much faster than we could physically travel in many lifetimes. Daily the teachings at the website are being listened to by hundreds of people in dozens of countries. Even as I type this letter my voice is being heard in many countries at the same time as they listen to the messages on the internet, the CD's, or the DVD's, etc.
We want you to share in the joy we have in the knowledge that people are being saved, healed, and delivered from all sorts of oppression daily through the messages made freely available to them. They are being taught the knowledge of God's Word freely because of your faithfulness. You share in this ministry. You are just as much a part of it as we are. We will all share the same reward for eternity.
Sue and I love you and appreciate you. We thank God for your generous and giving heart. God bless you!
Your friend and co-laborer,
