2016 MISSION REPORT…
Highlights of mission work include:
Authored and published 15 books with an additional 14 in the process of being written to be published 2017-2020, including “Unto the Uttermost” (5 Volume series encompassing 50 years of mission work throughout the world.) And in addition, our memoires, “My Life Journey” will be published.
At “our hired house” we hosted Christian leaders from China, Philippines, Nepal and India.
The free online “School of Tyrannus” http://www.churchrestoration.org continued to attract new students from around the world. In 2017, a complete curriculum encompassing 5 volumes of teaching materials is being published with http://www.Amazon.com – Dan R. Hubbell, and will be available for domestic and foreign training.
Daily Internet Media communications were maintained with hundreds of servant leaders throughout the world.
Provisions from God’s resources were distributed to many nations for special needs for widows, orphans, servant leaders, families of imprisoned loved ones, evangelism, establishment of new churches, and servant leadership training.
Celebrations were commemorated to give thanks to the Lord for His past and continued faithfulness to bless us, including: Laurel and my 50th Wedding Anniversary; 65th Anniversary in the ministry; 50th Anniversary in missionary work around the world.
My first missionary journey occurred in 1966 at which time I was 29 and single. This world mission trip was to 10 different nations including England, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Israel and Jordan. Our last overseas missionary journey was in 2010 at the age of 74 after having ministered in 27 nations including Muslim or Communist countries.
Christian Persecution & Martyrdom
Matthew 24:9-14 “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my names’ sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
In 2011, the Lord sovereignly revealed prophetically to me that the primary persecutors of the “End-time Church” will be militant Muslim Jihadists. (See the following website teachings: “Terror and Fear on the Earth, Part I & 2”, “Understanding the Crisis of our Times”, “Muslim Study #1 & #2”, etc.)
Because of our mission around the world for 50 years, I have made lasting relationships with servant leaders in many nations allowing me “on the ground” news and accurate reporting from trusted servants of these countries. In addition, I receive almost daily news reports from trusted publications including: “Voice of the Martyrs” “Open Doors”, “The Christian Post”, “World Watch”, “Center Study Global Christianity”, “Pew Research”, “Joel C. Rosenberg”, “International Christian Concern”, etc.
It was announced world-wide this second week of January 2017 by “The Christian Post,” that “90,000 Christians were Killed in 2016, 1 Every 6 Minutes” (Also noted was that 105,000 Christians were martyred in 2015). Included in various media was the news that because of severe and unprecedented persecution, that hundreds of thousands of Christians were displaced as refugees throughout the world. International Human Rights Watchdog released a report in 2016 that Christian persecution will continue increasing in 2017. The Roman Catholic Pope announced this week (1/13/17) “That there are now more martyrs in the Church today than in the early Church”.
Luke 21:28 “When you see these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
