May I Ask for Your Help?

Hey, may I ask for your help?

Bishop Naboth Ordination with the Team

I am blogging this request because we need your help.

Strengthen Naboth’s Mission trip December 2- 14, 2017.

First, I want you to know what we are doing for our Father’s kingdom! And, thank you for contributing to Save Naboth’s Mission in July. The mission to ordain Bishop Naboth and Alice Tumuhairwe and fulfill the requirements of the Ugandan government was an amazing success, hosting a delegation from President Yoweri Museveni’s office, and videoing the ordination ceremony for record purposes, thus bringing divine order to Bishop Naboth’s great mission.

Second, I want you to understand the purpose of our Strengthen Naboth’s Mission. You and I have a divine command. Jesus said, “‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'” (Matthew 28:18-20)

Third, I want you to have the opportunity for blessing by your prayers and gifts for Strengthen Naboth’s Mission trip December 2- 14, 2017.

The truth is, Melinda and I have loved you and sown in your life. And now, I need your help to fulfill the word of the Lord. Will you help us?

Support the Children

With the culmination and execution of Bishop Naboth’s Ordination in July and the Ordination of the 170 more Pastors in his ministry, I have a new burden and call to train leaders and feed the orphans. As this burden is an ongoing development for me and the I Am Network, Bishop Naboth has planned a Strengthen the Leadership Conference on December 4-9. This is a week-long training for the Leadership of some 290 churches from 8 African countries that relate to Bishop Naboth, and the structure to care for and educate over 700 orphans at the home base.

Now is the time for me and a team to go in the flesh, and you to go with us in your prayers and support. You reap the eternal rewards with us.

Ugandan officials want to see the development of Bishop Naboth’s ministry, orphanage, church network, and governmental participation. Our part is to impart the redemption, wisdom, and knowledge of God. On this trip, we will begin to make translated teaching video recordings that will be used to train the pastors and leaders in all of the regional city offices! So, I and a team are going December 2-14, 2017. Seventeen is the number of divine order and God is using us to establish His divine order in Uganda Missions – The Redeemed Church and Guma Na Yesu!

The Orphans Praise the Lord for You!

How can you help? (I am glad you asked..)

  1. I need your prayers before the throne. The multitude of souls that Naboth’s ministry brings in must be supported and expanded. He is an international harvester and he needs well-trained leaders! Please participate with me.
  2. Please consider going with us on a Leadership Training Mission.
  3. I need you to dig deep and give a donation. I know the Father has sent us, and you can receive the blessing of giving back. Please pray and give.

You may send your gift to:

As you know, we have had a long relationship with my “twin” brother Naboth. Since Naboth’s special request to me, and The I Am Network in 2007, we 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, ordained over 370 pastors, with good fruit in the ministry… now the ministry has over 290 churches in eight African countries, over 700 orphans, and students of pastors in a government-sanctioned school for education.

This mission is good soil!

I BELIEVE IN YOU

Pastor Steve

Your eternal Father believes in you! And I believe in you!

It was one of the darkest days of my life. I decided to walk away. The overwhelming shortness of breath, an intense from-the-neck-up headache, and the subsequent light headed swirl surrounded me like a cloud. And then I heard that still small voice, “I BELIEVE IN YOU!” You see, it is God that works in you, both to will and do His good pleasure. Are you ready to change the way you think so you can walk in BREAKTHROUGH?

The frustration that blew against me that day was a fierce wind. Some of my closest friends and leaders accused me, walked away, and only for personal prejudice. I could not put my finger in the hole on the dam, and more water flowed until a breach ensued. I experienced a confusion like never before. When people walk away, you find a new strength in the LORD. He says, “I believe in You.”

As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons make lemonade!

I want to show you how to make the best of your present circumstances!

I invite you!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!

Remember the greatness of our God!!!

Bishop Naboth Ordination with the Team

REMEMBER

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.

BISHOP ORDINATION

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!

PASTORAL ORDINATIONS

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!

Celebrations!!!

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

JOIN ME! and THE I AM NETWORK TEAM

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

You may send your gift by mail,

The I Am Ministry

21 Florida Ave

Black Mountain, NC 28711

You may send your gift through your card here:

Please help me settle this legal issue that faces Naboth, his family, his ministry, and his children.

Thank you ahead of time for your very important gift.

You Are a New Creation

Rev Steve Scroggs

Since God chose you to be His son or daughter, it is time for you to put away your denial and acknowledge your destiny! You are a new creation. You are special.

First of all, when you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you are born into the family of God. This means you are a son or daughter of the King. Eternal life flows through you.

Second, the kingdom of God is within you. You have all the resources within you to live strong, courageous, and confident! YOU ROCK!

Your only limiting factor is what you believe. Believe, you are a new creation.

I Am My Father’s Dream

OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN

Your eternal Father dreamed of you, before he created the heaven and earth. He chose you, before the foundations of the world. He gave you a purpose, before you were conceived. But, most people don’t KNOW their roots, they do not know their heritage, and they certainly do not understand their own power. Most earthlings are more connected with tangible earthly experience things than with the eternal power and glory of God. One such lady asked me, “Will you send me some Truth and confessions that will frame a new inner dialogue for my life dream?”

God Touches Man

God Touches Man

The Dream

Say this with me, “I am my Father’s dream.” Is this true?

Your earthly father and mother participated to get you here, but your Father in heaven is your original Father. Therefore, our Father God is a family man. Although many people hunt for themselves in their family tree, I did not find myself in my family tree. But, I did find a judge from England, a doctor in the Civil War, and a heritage that established the King’s edicts on the borderlands between Scotland and England.

Any suggestions for depression?

This is what the State of depression looks like. Change your posture!

This is what the State of depression looks like. Change your posture!

This morning someone texted me…Any suggestions for depression? It feels like a vacuum sucking the joy out of me…

I responded quickly. I know what God says, but you must choose to literally enter into His promise. The most powerful being that fills eternity says this to you right now!!! “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

MY TEXT –

Yes…stand straight up, jump up and down, and Say out loud… I am the son\daughter of the king of the universe! I have the power and love of God living in me! I choose to focus my mind and heart right now on His eternal life! NOW!!!! In Jesus name!

I bring my personality and my focus into the state of God’s love! My value is determined by His Love for Me! I am walking in the Spirit of eternal LOVE, POWER, and SOUND MIND!!!

papaSkyI bring every thought into agreement with the scripture that says… God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind!”

Now put you hands on your chest and pat your chest right below your neck, and while you do that say, I agree with my Father, I have his mind, I have his love, and he will take care of me!!!

Now pray, Father, will you please fill me with your perfect love? Right now?

Then take a deep breath and release your soul to Him.

Now tell someone what God has done for you…always give what God gives you.

Your belief system is seeing you as defeated, your health ending, and your job as a dead end. But – BELIEVE GOD! It is temporary!!!

Your choice is powerful!

REMEMBER – CHOOSE TO AGREE WITH GOD NOT DEPRESSION!

Your choice is powerful! What will you do for someone who you are in love with?
