CELEBRATION OF GOD’S FAITHFULNESS
Through the Tender Mercy of our God, Whereby the Dayspring from on high has visited us, to give light to them
that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet in the way of peace
Luke 1: 78-79, KJV
Big greetings from Dayspring Ministries International,
Nigeria to all the able ministers under the umbrella of this purposeful assembly, your prayers, love and encouragement has
been keeping us on.
By the grace of God, we have a lot of projects
in mind especially this year of His grace 2005, five is for grace, in Him there is grace for greater work.
DMI Nigeria is at the point of building on the foundation laid by
Christ Himself. Always be with us in prayers, you will be hearing from us often.
To the glory of God we had a successful Mission Awareness conference. It’s a joint programmed of His Jewels Missions
Outreach and Dayspring Ministries International. The conference which was tagged “you Are Commissioned for mission” took place from 9th – 12th February 2005.
It exposed the participants to the reality of mission because where there is no mission, commission is without purpose Act
1:8, Matt. 28:18-20
During the conference, answers were sought to the following questions.
Why am I in ministry?
What question am I here to answer?
What purpose am I here to fulfill?
What mission am I commissioned for?
We realized that purpose is a driving force. Therefore, when a life is driven by
a purpose, success is inevitable.
Men of purpose are “Risk – Takers” “What do you have in
your hand” was a recurrent question during the conference. This was actually the soul of the conference, stressing that
God wanted people to start with what they have and believe God for that which they don’t have.
The importance of faith was stressed. One of the speakers gave a teaching titled
“Faith, the Jungle Boot for Missionaries”. Mission work is a venture of faith; faith in the person of God, faith
in the word of God and faith in the faithfulness of God.
(Whatever He called for He provide for)
It all started some years ago that God began to lay in my heart a very heavy burden
for souls. In 2001, I designed a programme to bring together field missionaries, Pastors and church worker together, especially
those in the rural areas, to teach them and help equip them to reach the almost neglected rural dwellers.
This group of people might not have money to pay their ways to Abuja. So I had
to pray for provision from God so as to take care of their feeding, transport and to give them some kind of support to take
That came to pass in February 2001 they come, we trained them, prayed for them
and gave them books, bibles, clothing materials, detergent and some money to help transport them back to their different Mission
Stations and States. They were really happy. All these things happened without a specific sponsor, but God. 1 Thess. 5:24.
This is my belief, if a man has the call of God upon his life, he should start
from somewhere but must make sure he doesn’t remain there. That is what has kept the CONFERENCE from 2001 to 2005 when
we had the 4th Mission Awareness conference.
A STORY OF DIVINE PROVISION
We had printed the handbills to invite people to the conference which was to start
on 9th February 2005 but as at Wednesday 9th February 2005, I had only few books and bibles together
with other training materials. There was no money, no clothing materials to give to these people that are labouring in the
rural area for God. I had to trust God and move to the venue of the conference. On Thursday 10th February I got
four cartons of literature from Herald of His Coming and on Friday 11th February, a friend walked in and gave me
some money. By Saturday, we had enough, at least to send them away happily because the guest speakers brought bags of clothing
materials and some money. To God be the glory.
Dearly beloved, God is faithful. He stands with and supports any project He initiates.
I employ you to depend on God to finance your ministry. The future you are afraid of is safe. God is everywhere what he is
doing in America, He is manifesting in a grand style in Africa.
I feel like praying for you… you….. you….yes You!
You’ve stayed long enough in that circle of limited mentality, doubt and
fear you’re to pass through and not to get stuck in it. I command these chains of limitations to be broken in the name
of Jesus. Go forward and fulfill your assignment. Amen (Deut. 2:1-4)
Pastor David Francis Ina.
