Remember the greatness of our God!!!

Bishop Naboth Ordination with the Team


The Psalmist David said, The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. Psalm 111:2-6 KJV

I encourage you to stay connected with the works of the Lord… after all he is our Father.

The Ugandan Save the Mission was successful!

Thank you for your prayers and support! This is not the complete story…just the beginning. But words alone cannot fully communicate the honor I feel or the gratitude that overwhelms my heart for you. You reached out with your love, your faith, your prayers, and you gave generously to fulfill the Lord’s vision and commission.

In the end of July, after the miracles of overnight Visas, and rescheduled flights, and miraculous connections and six hour African road trip, we landed at the Lake View Hotel, Mbarara, at approximately 11:30 PM Friday. We rejoiced to fall into bed.


Celebration of Ordination

We awoke the following morning to fulfill the word of the Lord, and began the ceremonies around 10 AM on Saturday. It was Bishop Naboth’s Ordination; a magnificent and glorious celebration. After Bishop Naboth was ordained, Martha Seimway of the President of Uganda’s executive office delivered a passionate and powerful, God fearing and honoring message. She was going to deliver a political speech, but was overcome with the beauty of the Spirit. The Spirit gripped her as she confessed her faith, and compassionately called all Ugandans to remember where God brought them from. As she finished, she knelt on the platform and asked in tears for us to bless her, and her staff. As we prayed and anointed them, God opened another level of power and authority. The ceremony ended with bows and hugs. God is moving! This is the beginning of a relationship with the office of President Museveni.

During the meetings, three people received Jesus Christ as their personal savior, and the reports are still coming in to Bishop Naboth about miracles. Many signs and wonders, with accompanying words of blessing released Holy Spirit transformation. One woman whose arm was twisted in an accident stretched out her arm and was healed! Another man who endured great pain in his legs received complete restoration – this was Bishop Naboth’s brother Eric. And, another lady received complete deliverance from a witch doctor’s curse, and received salvation –  body soul and spirit wholeness!


Later, in The Redeemed Church, all-day-long ceremonies, we ordained twenty Pastors who needed to return to their churches, and would miss the Sunday Pastoral Ordination Service. Then on Sunday, the Lord moved powerfully. Alice’s sister, for the first time, received Jesus as her personal savior. Another gentleman received Jesus as his Savior, after the Lord healed him.

Unknown to us, a national television new channel received videos and published on the news the story of Naboth’s Ordination. And on Sunday evening, we were told and it was verified that Bishop Naboth’s story ran on the evening news, transmitted all over Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, and Burundi, as well as other African nations.

Our Father knows how to glorify His sons and honor His servants. The scripture says, “…humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and He will exalt you in due time.” This Trip fulfilled the word of the Lord!


A special treat of a banana to all the orphans.

We are celebrating the Lord’s victory, and as King David before us, and with the same declaration we say  ” … that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. (Ruling in and through His sons and daughters) And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s… (1 Samuel 17:46-47 KJV)

Thank you for standing with us in your prayers, and with your generous investment in the Kingdom of God for a bright and glorious future for our brothers and sisters all over the world! Matthew 6:33


The I Am Network’s commission and adventure is to literally disciple the nations through long term, and short term mission endeavors, while facilitating a network – focused through the internet for relationship, restoration, and resources for practical discipleship. God is moving and we are moving with Him!

Naboth Needs Our Help

Naboth Needs Our Help

Good morning…may I ask for your help?

Africa – Be the Story

I am writing to you quickly because of the urgency of my request, and because Melinda and I have loved you and sown into your life. We appreciate your support over the years, and now we want you to join us, and become a part of our ministry once again.

A new development for us, Mountain Vintage Fellowship, The I Am Network, and world missions came to me about five days ago.

Naboth’s mission is in Jeopardy. The government of Uganda is requiring Naboth by law to be ordained to a new level, have officials present for this ceremony, make a visual recording, and receive authentic credentials, at a ceremony in M’barara, Uganda. We ordained him years ago as a Pastor, but now the ordination is to another level, and time is running out for his credentials to be g. Therefore, I am going July 18-25, 2017 to fulfill this request.

I need your help:

Help the Orphans

  1. I need your prayers before the throne. The multitude of souls that Naboth’s ministry brings in must not be stopped. He is an international harvester! Please participate with me in prayer
  2. I need you to dig deep and give a gift. I know the Father has sent me, and you can receive the blessing of giving back. The Apostle Paul made a similar request, “For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. …an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” No gift is too small, so please give, and the promise of the Father will manifest in your life.

As you know, we have had a long relationship with my “twin” brother since 2002, and he asked me in 2007 for more of an authority covering for his ministry, and the Father answered his request. Since then, we with others, have supported Naboth and Alice, trained leadership, blessed and fed the orphans, ministered in conferences and crusades with literally hundreds of people coming to salvation, raised funds for the schools, ordained over 200 pastors, with the fruit of the ministry growing… now the ministry has over 290 churches in seven African countries, over 750 orphans, and students of pastors in a government sanctioned school for education, and a growing vision to disciple the nations. This is a Kingdom Family Ministry.

One Pastoral Ordination

Now you can participate with me and receive a reward from the Father. He said, every promise is Yes and Amen in Christ! Here is the promise: “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38
