Our ministry in Gunter City, India has been full of opportunities and achievements. We established Faith Tabernacle Church-India in 2007 by sending church missionaries, Scott Thomas and Jonathan Brooks to Gunter City. Since the establishment of FTC-India we have been able to see hundreds of lives changed through the leadership of Pastor Calebu and his wonderful family.
Since the establishment of our first church in 2007, the good news of Jesus Christ has spread rapidly and we currently have over 500 village churches throughout India. Not only are we seeing signs and wonders in Gunter City and the surrounding villages, but many children are being trained up in a Christian environment due to the orphanage supported by Faith Tabernacle Church. There are literally hundreds of orphans that come through the orphanage daily, as well as the after school program that will eventually hold up to five hundred children daily after school to keep them off the street of Gunter, and learning more about their creator and King, Jesus Christ.
We believe that with the financial and spiritual help from Faith Tabernacle Church and the great leader in Pastor Calebu and those called to serve with him we will continue to see great miracles take place in the nation of India. As always we ask that you keep our missions work in India in your prayers as we push forward with the vision God has given us for the nation.
We first felt the call to impact Africa in 2007 when Pastor John Jones & Apostle Bennie Jones traveled into the heart of Ghana, Africa to host a pastors conference with the emphasis on church planting. Since that moment covenant relationships were formed between Faith Tabernacle Church and Pastor James Amoako of Restoration Worship Centre that have changed many lives. Due to the relationship of FTC & Restoration Worship Centre there are now over 23 fully established places of worship in the region of Ghana, Africa.
In addition to the relationship with Restoration Worship Centre, we also began supporting Pastor Isaac Mwagi of All Nations Church in Kenya, Africa. In 2011 with the financial support of FTC, All Nations Church completed the construction of their new worship facility which is being used to fulfill the call of God on their lives. Pastor Mwagi is a diligent man of God who seeks the power of the Holy Spirit to flow in his church as well as his community, we ask that you keep this work in your prayers daily.
Our newest church established in Africa is Faith Tabernacle Church-Liberia which was established in the wake of January of 2012. This body of believers is guided by Pastor Robert T. Browne of Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa. Presently FTC-Liberia has established 3 churches in the Capital, Monrovia with an additional 5 places of worship in the interior part of the country where the Word of God has yet to be spoken. On any given Sunday in Liberia we will see our churches and places of worship filled with nearly 380 members and growing.
Through the contact with Apostle Bennie Jones, FTC Evangelist, we have been called to go south of the boarder and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, build churches, train pastors, and share the love of Christ to betrayed orphans.
Multiple times a year Apostle Jones and others from FTC go into Mexico to minister. Throughout the years we have supported the construction of six churches that are now established in the villages of Mexico. We will be completing our seventh church this year.
Along with constructing and setting up churches and ministries in Mexico, we also support Eagles Nest Orphanage, founded and operated by Pastor Jerry Wiley, located in Soto La Marina, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Eagles Nest is one of the first of its kind in Mexico, and has the most up to date facilities. Eagles' Nest Orphanage offers Bible, English, music, computer lessons, and sports for all ages. In the children's high school years, they will be offered ministerial training, welding, agriculture, or other technical or vocational opportunities. Eventually, they will be given the opportunity to attend higher education in a university or college.
