Faithful Word Baptist Church Botswana!
We are a local New Testament church based in Phoenix, Arizona, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ unto the ends of the earth.
FWBC - Botswana Project. Update October
Botswana is our first foreign church plant - In September 2016, Bro. Garret Kirchway left the U.S for Africa with a team of evangelists from FWBC, where he intended to spend the rest of his life preaching the Gospel to the people of Botswana. He would be based in Gaborone, which is the largest city in Botswana, after the other members of FWBC returned to America.
Our evangelists were received with great joy by the people of Botswana, and the Gospel was preached with boldness, spirit and with power.
People have likened our experience in Gaborone to the early days of the New Testament church, such as Pentecost in the Book of Acts, or the stoning of Stephen. (Living the Book of Acts >>) - verily it seemed like we had an anointing for a great work in Botswana, as people came to us, virtually asking "what must I do to be saved?".
As events unfolded angelic support appeared and an hedge of protection was no doubt about those that continued to labour, as great many people were born again of the incorruptible seed, after hearing the Good News >> that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
Unfortunately, the controversy generated by Pastor Steven Anderson's purposed Soul-winning marathon in South Africa appears to have spilled over into Botswana, and when he arrived prior to the bulk of the team mid-September, the order had already been given to prevent his entry - fortunately Government efficiency being what it is and Pastors last minute decision to leave before the main team, the paperwork wasn't yet in order and Pastor Anderson made quite an impact on the World News-scape >>, as well as spearheading an phenomenal evangelical effort that has totaled over 400 souls, who were plucked from the fires of hell, before he and Bro. Kirchway were Deported>> (see the great footage captured by professional photographer and filmmaker Paul Wittenburger)
Nevertheless, many Soul-winners remained in Botswana, outwitting and evading Department of Internal Security for a further 10 days, conducting an underground church service in the heart of Gaborone and adding vastly to the overall Soul-count for Botswana.
It was a great time of fellowship, of preparation and reflection for the troubled times we know must come and will no doubt inspire others to greater works - let it be added to the annuals in Heaven for ever to rejoice over.
Troubling, though not surprisingly, it appears, our adversary in South Africa and Botswana was none other than the US Government herself, further painting her as the tool of the Devil and adversary of Christ that she is, likened unto the Great Whore Babylon >> of Revelation.
Not only has the US provided over $350 million since 2012 for 'gay rights' in Africa, causing animosity toward the US among African Nations that resent American propoganda - “Africans do not seek to impose their views on anybody,” said Museveni (Ugandan President). “We do not want anybody to impose their views on us. This very debate was provoked by Western groups who come to our schools and try to recruit children into homosexuality. It is better to limit the damage rather than exacerbate it.” (Link>),
but furthermore the US government is implicated in funding the 'GayFM' radio station that was instrumental in advocating for Pastor Anderson to be banned from South Africa - (Proof >)
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
- Isaiah 5:20
Bro. Garrett Kirchway will continue in our ministry full time as a missionary, or what the Bible calls an "evangelist", he is still full of zeal, in good spirits, still Soul-winning and we have no doubt God is preparing him, and his wife-to-be, for a great and mighty work in the future - wherever his chariot, sword, bow and trumpet is appointed next. (We just havent been able to get Jeezebel's blood off the chariot wheels yet)
Faithful Word Baptist Church will continue paying Bro Kirchway's salary until such a time as the future church-plant is able to become independent. In addition, we will be raising money online through donations in order to provide supplies such as Bibles, New Testaments, church invitations, song books, preaching CDs, DVDs and the like for the future evangelical exploits.
Well done to everyone involved in making this great work a success, to those men of war that kept rank and that walked with a perfect heart through it all (including the bold women + child), to those that donated, who prayed for us and to those that tarried with the stuff - it was a great Kingdom victory, thanks and praise to Jesus Christ, to Him be all the glory.
Please continue to pray for us, our ministry and against those that would foolishly oppose the Gospel of our Lord - pray also that God would raise up a prophet for or among the good people of Botswana, that they would be edified and strengthened for His glory in Africa and witnesses unto all nations of the world, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
Come Lord Jesus, Amen!
