Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised...

A Work of Righteousness - 1985

Increasing Our Measure

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 15:16

Ministering in Zimbabwe. Terry and Kathy Mai, Patti and I left on New Year’s Day for Harare, Zimbabwe. We were there for two weeks ministering at churches in Harare, Chinhoyi, and Kariba. I spoke the first Sunday for one hour at what they called “Big Sunday.” This was where all Forward in Faith provinces met for a monthly meeting. I spoke on II Corinthians 8. There were over 4,000 people sitting on benches, on the floor, and looking in the windows. I spoke through an interpreter. Initially we had an army general interpreting and then a young man twenty-one years old, who really did an excellent job. He understood what I said and spoke it clearly. He was a joy! The last I heard he had his own ministry.

It was a great time. The next fourteen days we spoke daily and sometimes twice in the churches. We saw many miracles, devils cast out, healings, and people baptized in the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues. Most of the meetings were four to six hundred people after the big Sunday meeting. It was a wonderful time ministering to God’s people and seeing the beautiful country.

After returning home we began sending teaching tapes and money to Zimbabwe and other African countries.

In just five years we paid the property off in Plano in full.

Water of Life of Plano, Inc in the 1980’s.
We replaced the pews in the sanctuary with chairs and eighty-five pews were given away to a fellowship in Mesquite, Texas.

We started a church in Denton, Texas with Terry and Kathy Mai. We also started churches in Allen and Richardson.

We continued the Christian Training School, Word of Faith Satellite and our Television and Radio broadcasts.
